I buy my girls all kinds of handmade stuff- clothes, hair accessories and most recently these adorable friends from buttercupbloom.etsy.com. She worked with me to come up with just the perfect owl and kitty for my girls (who happen to super adore owls and kitties!). So here they are in action....
....can you tell they love them?! I sure do :)

I spend a lot of time on etsy. I mean a lot. Like almost neglect the kids a lot. Ok that's not totally true but still, I seem to always be searching the categories and I find amazing stuff. Here are a few things that recently caught my eye for one reason or another. Just click the image to go to the etsy listing :)
This one is from strata
The Branches - A Somber Stationery set of 6 Grim Greeting Cards
This one is from RedGateCeramics
This one is from Tresijas
Viva la Revolucion Rubber Stamps Set
Can you tell I have been in a skull and gothicish type mood? I also have the most awesome poster sketch waiting for me to snag a treasury. I wish we could do more than one poster sketch at a time :( I have so much fun making them!

Night before last I had the distinct pleasure of heading up to Los Angeles California to see my absolutely favorite musician in the whole world...Greg Dulli. He performed at The Troubador with his Gutter Twin Mark Lanegan and some other guy. It was basically acoustic- stripped down. It was great and all but man I'd rather see him rocking it with a full band. They did play Summers Kiss and Candy Cane Crawl so I can't complain. I loooooove those two songs. We did have a blast though- went with 3 of my girlfriends who never go do this type of thing and they loved it. We went and had some super yummy Indian food after an unexpected tour of Los Angeles courtesy of me forgetting how to get places. We cruised Sunset for fun after the concert then headed back down to the Southland. I sure miss LA sometimes. I am gonna head up and wander Melrose when the weather is nicer!

I listed a few new things over on etsy. I really love this bracelet in particular. I have had these beads kickin' around for a long time and they finally got the attention from the muse :)

On another not...I want my treasuries on the front page! I really do love them. I think they came out nice. The treasury sitting in my poster sketch right now is not a front pager so I'd love to get one of these babies up in the next 12 hours :)

My weekend design inspiration this week is courtesy of San Diego's North County. We go down to visit a few times a month and stay at my parent's house. Nothing like eating fresh-
from-the-chicken eggs and fresh from the farm veggies on an unseasonably warm January day. The weather was so nice in fact, we went on a hike over at Lake Calaveras in Carlsbad (Oceanside whatever- not sure what city its technically in lol). Lake Calaveras is just an oversized pond really, with hiking and biking trails that lead up to an abandoned quarry. My dad was telling us how when they were teenagers they would push old cars off the top and watch them crash down at the bottom. When we were kids there were all kinds of stories about how there were Satanic rituals held in the shadow of the quarry walls. We didn't see any tell-tale fire rings or abandoned cars- just some skaters skating the concrete wash-out and mountain bikers. We didn't see any calaveras either but I do love them so here's one from my etsy shop :)
