Project: Planter!

After seeing this modern planter on Apartment Therapy, I just knew I had to try it out for myself. I must say that it turned out really well and it was amazingly cheap and easy too! Step by Step:

Originality? Or Lack Thereof.

Yes, I posted this before, but I was reminded of it again today when I stumbled upon these photos of Dominic Jones jewelry:

I was reminded of the quote above because I, also, have been working on a line of new Heist items based on a rose thorn theme. Ok, maybe it's not the most original idea? Maybe it's been done before? Regardless, it brings up a dilemma...continue working on something I've spent a lot of time and energy on? Or call it a loss and scrap it.

I know other designers have dealt with this and it's just something that has to be accepted in the fashion and design world, but that doesn't mean it doesn't suck!

Oh well, since nothing is original and we're all inspired by each other, I will keep on keeping on, giving credit where credit is due and trying to make my way.

Rant over!


New in the Store: TONS!

I just put a BUNCH of new stuff in the STORE! Even though it took me all night to do it, I can't believe there's a lot more coming too! I'm so excited to share it with you, so head on over and take a look!

Skeletons, etc.

SOOOOOO much new jewelry in the works right now (not all involving skeleton parts!)


I made these doggie treats for Zero (and his doggie friends) the other night and just wanted to share the recipe here. It began with a recipe from Cooks.com but since it didn't make complete sense I ended up with something slightly different. Zero loves them (as does doggie friend, Leia), so I'm considering it a success!

2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1 tablespoon wheat germ
1 teaspoon chicken bouillon or soup base
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon brown sugar
6 tablespoons of liverwurst
1 egg beaten (For added calcium, process the whole egg shell in a blender or food processor until smooth)
1/2 cup ice water

Mix together flour, wheat germ, bouillon, garlic powder and brown sugar until well combined.
Cut in liverwurst until mixture resembles crumbs.
Stir in egg. Add enough water so that batter will form a ball.
Roll dough out to 1/2 inch thickness and then cut into shapes of your choice.
Bake in a preheated 350F oven for 25-30 minutes. Cool on wire rack and then serve!


Great Game!



I am in love with this!

It's Britney, bitch!

My awesome friend, Lauren, just gave me 3 tickets to the Britney Spears show tomorrow night! I scooped up my best buds, Kristen and Melody to accompany me...can't wait to sing all sorts of awesomely, lame Brit classics with my ladies!
