Starry treasuries

September news

I'm so thrilled since I've just shipped my August challenge piece, the Hollywood star necklace, which sold yesterday!!!!!!



Lately I haven't been beading a lot, since I've been too caught up with drawing - by the way, who knew kids' sleeping bag were so difficult to draw!!! So many holes and stitches and hidden patches...perhaps it's just because I don't have kids that I find it complicated.
Anyway I've started beading simple little things again, so: here's my first Pitaya (pattern from Mariposa)



...my new Blackberry earrings



...and my Sunshine Beaded Earrings:



These earrings are so fun to make, I think I'm going to make some more in other colours.

Oh, there's another new item in my shop, a phone charm:



So now I feel less guilty for neglecting my shop, but I still have 3 necklaces to finish and about 20 more clothes to draw, hoping my wrist won't hurt for both.
Have a nice day!!!!!!!!!

Hip hop treasuries

I used to be a hip hop girl when I was younger, before discovering the power of rock (LOL).
Can't deny I still listen to my fav songs when I feel down, and since the weather is pretty ugly today, I cheered up myself with this treasury, inspired by the beauriful Sunshine by jay Z and Foxy brown:



Another great Jay Z song which makes me want to dance is Money Ain't A Thing:



Wouldn't it be nice to say so and mean it?!

Last one is Bonnie & Clyde:




PS: just got a convo from the great Trinitydj who composed this great treasury featuring my Pancha bracelet:



Please take a look and comment!

Treasury-ing

I have a new addiction: treasuries.
I started with an innocent one, inspired by a picture of Axl Rose wearing a "S**t happens" t-shirt, and now I can't stop myself anymore!
So I decided to make treasuries inspired by my favorite rock songs.
Here we go - S**t happens:


Black, black, black! of course inspired by Back in black by AC/DC:


And, of course, Welcome to the jungle!


Last, a song from Slash's Snakepit album - It's five o'clock somewhere:


Stay tuned for more treasuries!

Little girls growing up

Friday was one of the most exciting days of my life, since my "little" cousin, whom I've grown up with, got married.

I still can't believe it! Seems like yesterday we were playin' with Barbies!
I had mentioned her before during the "Secret Garden" challenge...she's like a little sister to me and I love her so much, I wish her and her hubby a happy, exciting life together!

Guns N' Roses in Milan!

I already know what most people are thinking: that Guns N' Roses don't exist anymore.
Well, you are wrong.
I've always been a Slash fan, and I had seen the other former Guns N' Roses members at the 2007 Gods of Metal in Milan, when they were the Velvet Revolver.

Velvet Revolver at Gods of Metal 2007
They were great, but of course my last wish was to see/hear Axl singing live.
I thought it was impossible...until I had the tickets for the concert in my hands!

Can't believe it!
His performances in these last years haven't been really good...so i was really worried to go there and hear a husky-crappy voice.
It definitely wasn't like that.


After yesterday I can say without any doubt that not only Guns N' Roses are still alive, but they rock!
Hear yourself...

video

The 3 guitarists are amazing, stunning artists, and you won't regret Slash not even for a second, not to mention Axl's voice, which was awesome.


What can I say more...it was a dream come true.

Still in disbelief after the concert
And to end this post in a "beady" way, here is a cuff I made with a shoe-box-loom some years ago...



And a better scheme for those about to rock!
