Art Therapy

Simply put, everyone is stressed.  Some people run, cook, meditate, or seek counseling to relieve it.  Lately, I've turned to drawing.  It's a way for me to communicate how I'm feeling without having to talk about it.  The top two drawings have been cropped from the originals, because frankly... they're sad and too personal.  But I wanted to share these in case anyone else is struggling and in need of an outlet.  Maybe this will inspire you to create something.

Also, I am quite in love with the dinosaur version of me.

Thank You For Being a Friend

Blanche, Rose, Dorothy, and Sophia are together again!

The Golden Girls theme song has been stuck in my head since I made this.  The necklace was a special request, and I've had several more customers ask for it.  I haven't decided if it will be a permanent piece in the shop.  If you'd like your own, email me at something_monumental@yahoo.com.

Stamped Expressions Co.

I couldn't resist purchasing another custom ring.  This time I went to Stamped Expressions Co. and picked out the spiral wrap ring.

Recently, I was dubbed the "Queen of Make-Believe".  I also remembered that it's a phrase Robert Smith uses in many of my favorite Cure songs.  So, I pretty much had no choice but to get this ring made.

Map Shoes on Yahoo! Makers

My map shoes were recently featured on Yahoo! Makers with some other amazing map-related projects.  I really love the picture frame idea from Just Imagine.

Bone + Feather Necklace

I have lots of new beads to play with, and these diamond-shaped ones are my favorite.  This bone, feather, and turquoise necklace can be found in the shop.

The Dark Side

Our guest bathroom recently joined the dark side of the Force.  The Death Star greets you as you enter, and an AT-AT Walker hides behind the door (both decals made by me).  The soaps are from Fushicho's Gallery.
