Blogging from Vancouver BC

I miss my easel, my paintbrushes. they are usually in reach right next to my bed. This is because i always wake up with a newly lit lightbulb, sometimes, even in the middle of the night. and it's just most convenient that way. but this hotel bed is getting a little too big too tidy and too empty. So in order that i keep my ideas fresh, i've been catching and reading other blogs etc. and i found ALMOST EVERYTHING HAS ONE! i hope these will inspire a thought.

1.rubber stamping with powdered sugar, perfect for themed dinners and fantasy weddings
This hostess and maid of honor tried something different with the Peacock Rubber Stamp-by using food coloring and powdered sugar creating an elegant and edible glass plate design.
mix the correct ratio of powdered sugar and food coloring to get a light-dense paste. works on cakes &cupcake wrappers too

2.polyvore, great for fashion advice and outfit brainstorming; interior designs too
here are a few sets i've created so far using key pieces i own and decorating around it. one convenient thing is it directly links you to online shopping sites. it's super addicting so be careful
Alice in Wonderland
Sailing North

additional to this, keep a fashion police scrapbook, i know i do!

3. colorful papers &glitter. just enough for scrapbooking. i visited michael's today and almost died amazed at how much stuff they have in there. don't get me wrong, ive been there a million times before, but each visit is like a new one. the things in there don't change much, but i think i do. i don't remember how much i spent on crafts but it was a fortune. my sister had to push me out of the door &take a couple things out of my basket, "you don't need that", of course i do.
