Gorgeous Earrings by Lyn and Gette of Three 5 Eighty 5. These earrings are handmade and hand-woven to perfection. After I had seen these earrings on etsy, I actually saw them in person, on this women in a coffee shop in Chicago, and they are beautiful. What a fun strange coincidence!
So i have been researching Reeboks, and i'm excited to say that i got them in the mail over the weekend! yeah, I got the vintage white looking ones, but i would have loved these other ones, but they were either 80-120 bucks, or they didnt have my size. Also, they might have been hard to match outfits too :)
So fun, and detailed, i love these pieces!! Deana from OctopusME is super sweet, and creative, I can't believe that she intricately designs, casts, fabricates, and metal works these wonderful creations.
I love her shop announcement, and i was reading through all of her descriptions, and she has a fun fact about Octopuses'(is that a word?) , with each different item, and description! You can learn something new when reading about her creations! check it out!
heres one fact:
Octopus Fact: Sometimes when an octopus releases a cloud of ink, the cloud is shaped like the creature itself. This is called pseudomorph, meaning false body. Often the cloud fools a predator long enough for the octopus to get away.
The story of the NIU shooting really hits close to home, since I went there, just a few short years ago, as well as my boyfriend Donnie, My sister Annie, Her husband Chad (NIU Cop 2 years ago), my closest friends, Katie, Casey, Erin, Alyssa, Michael, Alex, Bryan, Keenan, Quinn, Dan, and so many more people to name. Its really hard to believe when this was Your school, that you went to. I can't even imagine, how terrifying, it must be to have been at the campus when this happened. We have all had class in Cole Hall. If Anyone wants to comment, or needs to say or get out anything, feel free to post it here.
I just pray for those students, and faculty who are going through the experience right now. I pray that they can talk to people, and get help to deal with this horrible act. How could you go to school after that? And most of all I pray for the families and friends of the students who have passed on, and who are injured.
My friend and I went to this awesome paper store, and found this book of paper flower cutouts, there was no directions, so i did the best i could and had a great time doing it! Super fun, now i have to figure out what to do with them :)
So i met these super Creatives through Myspace when they sent me a friend invite for their band "The SwayBack" i listened to their great music first and really enjoyed it. but what really drew my attention was their profile photo, and clicked on the website, Dragon Deer, created by Eric and Jonathan from The Sway Back. I was impressed!
Anyway, Eric and Jonathan, have some serious talent,
check out their site, for more work, and to listen to their music go to their myspace page
