So close, so much to do.

Its been a few days since I have posted anything. But so much has gone on! The Square One event "Man on the Moon" art show is almost here! 
and the Facebook event invite

I think of man on the moon and i always picture this lovely hero of mine....

Found some new and interesting pieces for my art/hats/projects. Thrift shopping has never been this good to me.EVER. Lots of cheezy but awesome plactic flowers and fruit, pendants, brooches and if not anything physical lots of ideas. All so cheap!
Also received some 45s and colored mini disks from a friend :)
Havent thought of what to do with them yet but my brain hamster is in overdrive and drinking a lot of coffee.
And Im still making pieces! Over 40 was what I counted last at the beginning of March! hah! I hope I have enough table and wall for the art show...
I havent even had a chance to take pictures of the new stuff. Or even the new dolls ive been working on. Im super stoked on the dolls. I need to think of a better name for them though, because they are not just dolls. The boyfriend is totally my muse. Its been an enjoyable project. Im Salvador and hes my Gala.
Today is a perfect day to get done all that i am forcing myself to do. Its awfully wet outside and its not going to slow down anytime soon.

 Owl Fascinator.

THIS new fascinator is one of my top favorites! I call it Hula Honey. And it looks great on even a weird shaped head, like mine ;)

Okay. Time to go clean.

The art show is so soon!


I'm extremely excited and nervous about the event. Im fairly prepared with all of my pieces, its just the set up im worried about. It should be fine. Just have a few things to figure out.

Purple Lily Fascinator
Thick/heavy material, not easy to work with. But I did some crazy stitches all around to change it up a bit.

Lovely Sunday

Thought I would post before heading over to the Chalk Walk in south tampa. Should be entertaining. Its so wonderful outside.

 I have a few new fascinator hats in the works. This one turned out well. Picked up some flyers for the show on the second. Extremely excited! Business cards are coming along, with some possible stickers to hand out or slap on the benches/buildings around town. I think in going to ask a few of my lady friends to pose in some upcoming pictures. Then you can see how the hats form to your head. Just looks classier.

This hat is outrageous! Much, much time and patience involved in this one.

Only wear if you have the attitude to match. hah.

Little bows I made a few weeks ago. Simple but cute. Its got that pin up vibe. I want to bring the bow back.

Great day!

I had a dream last night. Usually my dreams are fun or terrifying. This dream was neither. I was inspirational and gave me a killer idea for the art show. Im not going to tell you what it is though, you will just have to be there. Or see my pictures from the event at a later date! :p 
But I digress...  that was my dream...Today was an exceptionally great day! Besides the six hours of work, I got to go thrift shopping, and found my dream items at none other than Second Image. An excellent second hand store in the Tampa area. I can always walk out the door with something interesting in hand.

I could put up more pictures of my work...but then i feel im spoiling the suprise of the art show.

then one really reads my blog. haaah!

I almost wore this piece out the other night (unfortunately it rained and riding a scooter in the rain can become hazardous, so i had to cancel my plans) but i was wearing this and my red cowboy boots. Going for a cowboy and indian look. The head bands I make like this one is my absolute favorite style. Its totally hippie but so freakin in right now!

Record kick

I never thought I would get such pleasure from breaking records (only crapy christmas records, i promise.) These recent record projects have been fun and have actually turned out alright.
