Where do I go from here??

Check out my latest curation creation featuring all sorts of map related items that represents my current state of mind, which is distracted with thoughts of travel and exploration, hoping it will allow me to discover the perfect place for my next move, but with so many options and so little current knowledge, I have no idea where my next big move will take this point, i just hope it's somewhere warmer than here. Hope everyone's keeping warm out there : )

Seafoaming at the mouth for these seafoam selections

Ok, so I'm not actually foaming at the mouth, but I am LOVING these fabulous seafoam etsy finds selected and collected in this seafoam green themed treasury which features one of my own Little Gems, specifically it's one of my novelty items created for valentines day shoppers for the 2011 holiday. Big thanks to etsy seller, Adornmegirl, for featuring my item in her lovely treasury!!

A plethora of pastels

Unexpected Words of Wisdom

Earlier this week I found some unexpected words of wisdom during a visit to deliver a custom item order to one of my favorite Little Gems customers. She hit on a little spark of genius when she said:

"Oh, no, I never wear gray - except to bed. It's the only color that is known to specifically show sweat"

Thanks to Stacy (who used to live in AZ year round) for sharing these words of wisdom with me on avoiding sweatiness. Haha.

Love this random pic!!

This picture is from July 2010, before my big transition back to metro Detroit. Living in this kooky downstairs apartment on the corner of church and market streets, in st. joe, mi. In my little corner of the world being all creative and playing with my beads for so long that I'd find myself 2 days later alone on my island of beads...where the creations run amongst you, and they run wild. See all the reasons I love this pic below:

Other reasons
I LOVELOVELOVE the layered look I was rocking in this pic.
How crazy HAPPY I looked
My AWESOME Double sided Monet Painting room divider/self proclaimed headboard in the background
My entire setup and amount of space in my old bedroom - even though the house itself was kind of crappy
The pretty pink of the tshirt I'm wearing (and just the t-shirt in general - it's so soft!!
The warm color palette - especially the tan color of my skin!

These are a Few of my Favorite Things!!

My latest treasury curation creation!! Spreading the love to my fellow etsy sellers and featuring some of my favorite new finds, like a vintage Detroit map lamp by etsy seller, citybird.
