Candy Resin Necklace

I turned this resin piece into a necklace for a 6th grade friend, Courtney who loves glitter, cats, Hannah Montana, gymnastics and most of all, candy. The candy hearts inside the resin say, "Too Hot", and "You Rock". I just drilled holes on either end of the rectangle, screwed in some eye hooks, and hooked on some chain and a clasp that I bought from a craft store. It will be a very late birthday present. Unfortunately, I'm notorious for being late on birthdays. But I guess it's more of a surprise that way. --L

Vintage Treasures

Here are a few of my recent finds I've been telling Steph about-- teacups, toys, elves and a great retro sci-fi book. What more could one ask for? I love how aliens were depicted as robots in the old days. --L

Cubist landscape & city sunset

My friend Emma, who recently moved to SF, has the most amazing views from her apartment. I'm quite jealous and pretty much always suggest to hang out at her place so I can take it all in. Standing out look through her window, you can turn to the left and see the SF landscape consisting of houses and apartments stacked on top of each other. My first thought was how much it resembles a cubist painting (just bringing in my art history background).

And if you turn to the right, you see the Golden Gate Bridge which I tried to capture during the sunset. Umm... if I had her apartment and her views, I don't think I would ever want to leave! Enjoy the show... -s

Introducing... Otto II, the Amazing Polar Bear!!!

Phew... I'm finally finished with this amazingly cute, but rather challenging project. I found this adorable pattern on one of my favorite knitting blogs There were a few parts that I needed to do a bit of improvising and trying to cover up mistakes, but overall I'm really happy! Pretty soon Otto II, will be shipped down to Austin, Texas for my friends Tiffany & Duane's first baby that's expecting in a couple of weeks. I hope baby will cherish it! Before we part, I'm going to try and do more photo shoots, because he is so darn cute! I think I need to make one for me! - S
