Cut up a concert t-shirt, hoping to make it even cooler - possibly for resale

1st Time

WetDesert sold its first item on Etsy.com last night and we couldn't be happier.

View From Inside The Dressing Room

When style plays an important role in one's life, so can dressing rooms.  
Here are my personal effects hanging up in one in Austin, Texas.

Give Us This Day Our Daily Bread

We use the dishwasher as storage for large pots and pans.
Love the gas range!! Although, I don't bake bread in it very often :)

I joke that the bunny and the knives so
near the stove is a bit Fatal Attraction :)
A vintage pillowcase became a curtain to replace a broken cabinet
door. This is a favorite hiding place for the kitties!

My favorite corner of the kitchen. I'll probably
do an entire post on this corner one day....

All That Glitters

Paint your nails
Douse them in glitter while the polish is still wet
Tap of the excess glitter, swipe on a top coat and admire :)

My Sexy New Office

Juicy laptop cover (a gift from Kat),
Dooney & Burke Popsicle wristlet (Iowa City VonMaur circa 2007),
and Robyn Ludwick Happy 2U bag
I have a confession to make. Nearly one month ago, I left behind a corporate job that had become terribly ill suited to me to venture out to parts unknown. I grew up with a desire to create but focused on the practical in my work life for a bit too long. So, here I am. My new office is a laptop and a bag full of ideas. Let's see where this takes me......

Grateful Dead, tribute band

Trying Something New

Inspiration from my Jamie Oliver cookbook

I had the flour and eggs

6 lovely brown eggs courtesy of my brother,
 sister-in-law and their 3 hens.

So far, so good

This is going to get messy!!!!!

The dough

I rolled out the noodles with a rolling pin (the machine would have been helpful)
 and sliced them up.

Homemade noodles

Dinner components

Boiling the noodles (or rather, the dumplings)

Really quite tasty with red sauce and cheese

The wonderfully talented Robyn Ludwick.

Blowin' in the Wind

I made a banner for our backyard to decorate a bit for summer.

The fabric was repurposed from an old pair of curtains and a bedspread that I no longer needed.
It adds such a pretty touch to our lovely backyard.

I dig music

Let's face it. Music is all that really matters in the end. I love music and I love the musicians who make it....(most of the time).

We're also working on some images for WetDesert....

Let's Head Out West

This photo is from about a year and half ago in West Texas. Thinking that maybe the WetDesert girls need another trip out into the wide open.......

 I like pretty things that shimmer and sparkle. I want to be the one that shimmers and sparkles so I have a fairly hearty make-up collection. I am constantly finding a new color that will glide across my eyelids and make them a bit prettier. I have spent more time than I probably needed coating my lashes in mascara. And while I love it, I don't want to drown in all of my make-up. I want to love what I have but use it up in a timely fashion before I continue to buy more (easier said than done). Thankfully, I have developed a few ways to enjoy my make-up so much that the lure of buying more is somewhat sated. I put all of my beautiful extras on display on a built-in shelf in my bedroom. It pretties up the bedroom and reminds me of all that I have.

Long ago, I took the cover off of my Too Faced Beach Bunny Quick Chronicles book after I used up all the make-up, stapled some gold ribbon on the Beach Bunny and hung her up to decorate the bathroom.

This past fall, I used a birthday gift card to buy the Too Faced In Your Dreams make-up palette. The girl on the palette is a shimmery dream and I had to display her for all to see. The In Your Dreams book was quite a bit larger than the Beach Bunny but I glued ribbon onto the side of the book and now both make-up girls hang up in the WetDesert bathroom making everything in it a bit prettier and a whole lot sexier.
