Glitter Triangle Earrings, DIY

  Make some sparkly earrings for the holidays.
 I want to say something about these close up photos of my face.
 I woke up this morning knowing I needed a few close up  photos of ME
 actually wearing the earrings I had made. All of you bloggers out there know what a task it is to get a photo of yourself, one that you do not hate or critique to the point that you say "Just forget it!" I know like me you Look at every scar, freckle and in my case wrinkles and think
 "Oh my I have to Photoshop that!" 
    Being a 47 year old blogger can be daunting sometimes. I struggle with my age like everyone else and taking close up pictures first thing when I wake up  is not my idea of a wonderful morning. With that being said, this is who I am now and this is what I look like.  It has taken many struggles for me to get here and I am not going to apologize for my wrinkles, scars or anything else
OR Photoshop them out.  Not one wrinkle, freckle, scar, sagging turkey neck was
  Photoshopped out of any of these photos.
 I am not a model or perfect by any means.
 I am just me doing what I love and that is Creating, Loving and Living.
 There has been a lot of talk about retouched photos and  Photoshopped photos, well the only thing I changed in these photos was some glitter that ended up on my nose. 
I did Photoshop that out it was distracting to my earrings.

     I am on the other hand wearing a little makeup: Oil of Olay CC cream, lip balm, a little mascara,  and a little highlight on my cheek bones. I didn't want to completely scare you.

 But I hope that you all know that we are all just souls in a body,
 all struggling with daily life and just trying to succeed and be loved. 
If you ever get to meet me in person I look just like these photos
 and I am not ashamed of anything.
I am just me.
Now lets go make some earrings!

Decorate It, Halloween Style.

I Love Halloween, but decorating for it over the last few years has been a tremendous challenge for me because I am working all of  the time. I have been  much to tired to pull out all of my decorations and put them away again. I know that is just being a little lazy. Well this year I did pull out a few decorations and stream lined them down  to make it a little more manageable for me.
I am so happy that I decided to decorate this year because it has renewed my fall spirit  and forced me to  clean all of my little nooks and crannies, the ones that get neglected.
 Now I can relax and enjoy all of my hard work.

T-Shirt Bolero DIY

I discovered this Bolero when I was trying to use up some
 left over t-shirts I had sitting around from other projects.

This shirt came from just turning that scrap shirt upside down.
Tulip Fashion Sequins and Aleene's Quick Dry Fabric Fusion
 helped me put on the sparkling  finishing touches on it.
