Secretary of State-ment Pieces

Madeleine Albright was my very first political female role model.

And I'm happy to say, she still holds the top spot.

Albright has a book coming out that inventories her vast collection of pins.  She gives accounts for each one, telling the important meaning behind her picks.

It's so great to see a woman using style and fashion to help underscore her opinions and work.

Ok, Hair. You won this round.  Thanks only to Herbal Essence's Tousle Me Softly mousse.  

But that can is bound to run out at some point.  And I've been wanting to cut my hair for a reeeeally long time now.

And, just so you know, I'm still obsessing over Ginnifer Goodwin's Emmy look.  OBSESSING.

I think it's because I miss having cats

Because you can never get enough Cute or Lolz:

A Thousand Apologies

Sorry I've been missing lately.

I got caught up in life.

You know how it goes.

Etsy: Turned into Reality

Artwork Inspiration

Wearable Pieces

Friday Night Sounds

I'm addicted to checking out iTunes' giveaways. It's like gambling; it's mostly hit or miss. But, baby, when I find one I like, it's HUGE.

Gossip's Heavy Cross was a freebie a couple months ago. I was wary, mostly because over the summer Beth Ditto was EVERYWHERE in the fashion world, and there was this big push for fat acceptance and lots of noise about plus size clothing becoming more commonplace. And of course all that lasted for about 5 minutes. Except Beth does have a clothing line out, which I've heard good things about.

However, I had never heard of Gossip, so I didn't know how they sounded.
But, hey, free song. Why not?

I can't even tell you how many times I play this song. It'd be almost ridiculous.

If it wasn't so awesome.

You have no idea how happy this makes my heart.

Digital Art Warm Up

This sketch was done over a couple sessions here and there, created in Corel Painter Essentials 4, and blatantly ripped off/inspired by Janey by TUSH TUSH. Because I want to be Tali when I grow up. She's ah-maze-zing.
