death becomes you

cami and teen and i wanted to do a halloween spooky we did
paper goods are expensive ...but plastic that looks like metal? worth it
i own alot of items that could be in a haunted mansion
cami loves cheesecloth
cami and teen are the best and most gracious of hostesses
after painting white on my face i immediately put bronzer...
i will not be cute dead or come one month since i barely got tan this summer
candied apples are best done with two people
wash the sticks before you put them in the apple
woodstain does not come out of clothes...(sorry teen) but made excellent place cards
i'm behind the camera all night so i feel 89 percent justified in taking a mirror picture of myself and posting it on the world wide web to prove i was involved (11% still feels it may be weird of me to do)
i am sure teen will post more pics on her party blog ...i just got to em first cuz i had em keep posted with her here

butterfly kisses

sorry this isn't even the end of the fair pics a fair junkie...
they had a butterfly "rescue" center where you dip your "feeder" in "nectar"...
and if you ask if you could take home the garbage can of dead butterflies that were "rescued" at the end they will look at you like you're a "freak" so that you get too embarassed to take them but then regret it for ever after...i've "heard"

therefore i am

i call my brainwaves away  i text my fingers off
i email the world
i gchat the life out of my friends
i skype every once in a while
i blog in my head more than i actually post
i facebook my face off
i nook my novels
i spotify to my ears delight
i photoshop the pretty  into my photos
i linkedin my networking self
i pin my soul away
i am caving and getting an iphone
i work at a technology company

Getting information off the Internet is like taking a drink from a fire hydrant.

-Mitchell Kapor

and i kinda feel like my face is getting blasted off

dont get me wrong i am so grateful to technology and the connectedness i maintain as well as visual inspiration that the internet has opened to me...but lately when i want to do something creative i go "find an idea" to craft or draw..and something in my hearts satisfaction goes missing...not that it's a bad thing i really want to emphasize it is so great to be able to draw from so much instead of that blank 'now what' feeling so many projects create when you sit down to do them ....but i am just itching to take a hands on art or jewelry or ceramics or film photo class ..and it is an itch this world wide web just can't scratch

in my defense i havent done much in a long time

...don't you worry more pics coming soon

bug girl

i was a total bug girl when i was still a total bug biggest obsession was probably rolly poleys and snails...but maybe they are just the easiest to find...i spent hours upon hours finding and saving (killing) them in homemade hospitals i collected cool dead ones (some things dont ever change) and when i was pinning my heart away i saw this...its everything i never knew i always wanted...and i wanna make some of my is kind of like having that childhood box of treasure around your if someone could tell me where to find it!
also i know its kinda sad they are dead but i just like to think they found them dead of natural causes first
