Well I do not post a lot. I read a lot of blogs but, rarely comment. As a result I do not get a whole lot of traffic so I don't feel bad about not posting often.

Well, your "home girl" is about to take some classes at FIT. I hope to get a graphic design degree. Wish me luck. I already have a degree from FIT so I will not have to take liberal arts.

The latest issue of Domino came out and the "Peacock Hues" article really caught my eye. I'm not usually a jewel tone person so I had to seize the opportunity. I scanned it and came up with a color story based on the swatches. I hope to do a lot more with this in the coming week but wanted to share my inspiration with you. The September issue is all about color and I like to get magazines when the focus is color even though I feel as though I have a good color sense.

I sometimes put olive oil in my hair. So I decided to make myself some herb infused olive oil. Here's what I did. I bought lemon, lavender, and rosemary. Used a vegetable peeler to peel off the lemon rind. Careful to not get the pith(all the essential oils are in the skin). I put the lavender and rosemary in a ziploc bag and pound them to bruise the leaves and then put them in oil. After all this I looked up how to and found Solarkat's Eco Blog. It's a cool blog especially if you like natural products. I found that I'm not far off the mark. However, this way takes 3 to 6 weeks.

Here is my work station.

Here is side view!

Here is another side view!

Well that's all for now. I hope you enjoyed your visit.

Oh, Oh, Oh! P.S.
Here is a photo of my Olmo. I usually do not get to photograph him because he's so curious that he walks toward the camera.I caught him while he snuggled up next to me. It's a little blury due to camera shake(I don't like to use the flash) but, you can still see his gorgeousity.

Status Update

There are projects that need to be completed. There are also projects that need to be began. The trick for me is to find the balance. Unfortunately the time will not be now. I have 2 totes to complete and 3 cosmetic cases to start. I am only being paid $20.00 a piece for the 3 of them.

I started a new project without finishing the last 2 I started. I kinda like this one. I don't think I will do a lot of embellishing on this one though.

I'm so tired. I feel like a child who needs guidance. I made a Bechamel sauce today. I have a friend at work from India who has never had Mac & Cheese. I wish I would cook more, create more, be more. But, I just don't feel like it.

I went to the farmer's market on saturday and forgot my camera.
