Judo Chop!

lol.  I found this a while back and have been waiting to post it.  I guess now is as good a time as any.  Check out that perfect posture whilst being thrown!

So the portfolio review went really well!  I got some great feedback and couple packets of Old Bay, so I guess the whole thing was big win.  It almost makes me want to go to the one that's being held in Frederick, MD this Saturday.  The 3 hour drive is holding me back, though.  I got some great contacts, which is wonderful since I'm coming up on my last semester in school.  Can't wait to get out!  Time to start figuring out my life ^_^

Getting into High Gear

I have a portfolio review in Towson, MD this Saturday. I'm crossing my fingers for a good opportunity coming from it.

When I have a bad day I watch this:

Twitter Buttons

Being a twitter fanatic and button maker, I created these guys.  Custom buttons with your twitter name and background!

I love them ^_^  you can get yours here.  My vision is that people can get them for themselves and friends.  In my head I see a messenger bag full of followers and friends!

I'm in front with my boyfriend to the left and our roommate to the right.  We rock twitter all day long!  Holla.

Paint Chip Earrings

I have a problem with paint chips.  I gravitate towards them in any store and stare longingly at the beautiful colors and combinations.  Too bad I live in an apartment where I can't change the wall color, therefore rendering the pretty chips useless to me.  It just bothered me that such a wonderful and free resource had no purpose, then I saw this blog by Jennifer Perkins and got inspired!

What you'll need:
-Paint chips in contrasting colors
-Scissors or a circle cutter
-Hole punch
-Small jump rings
-French Hook ear wires
-Jewelry pliers

Take your paint chips and circle cutter and cut out the larger circle.  Mine is 1 inch, only because that's the size cutter I had.  Come to think of it...I have an even bigger one I use to cut out buttons...I'll use that next time.  When you cut these, make sure you leave a little space between so you can make the most of the chip.  Waste not, want not you know.

Next use the hole punch to cut out the smaller, contrasting color.  I used a corner of the lighter color to go with my darker circle.  Now, after this step, a seasoned jewelry maker/paper crafter will tell you to brush a clear coat of sealer, like Mod Podge, on your circles once you've put them in place.  But I'm wingin' it, so we're totally omitting that whole step.

Now you can poke holes through both the circles.  I didn't glue mine together or anything, just loosey goosey.  After that, just put one jump ring through both circles, another jump ring through that one and then the hook.  Tada!  You've got some super easy, super cute earrings!

I left the back open so you can tell they were made from paint chips.  If you don't like that look, you can easily glue two together for a more finished back.  I would recommend gluing the pieces and letting them dry before cutting them out, you'll get a much cleaner product in the end. 

Hope you like it!  And please send please send pics if you make them!

Treasury and things that I want.

It expired a few days ago...I'm a slowpoke.  

Also, if anyone buys me any of these things, I will not be offended.  Quite the opposite in fact.
