First ever Crochet hat! and fishnet glove

This is the first hat i ever made thanks to Corrine from They have a step by step tutorial on how to do it on the site. but she wasnt so specific about the dept, i just went in about 2 and a half inches,the hat she made may be deeper

as 4 the glove thats a random creation [i needed something to go with the hat] i only made one because i was lazy. but when i thought about it, on was just enough

you may be asking "renee why didnt you make one in black?" im already on the job lol. im going to make 2 black gloves; no hat though [not enough yarn :(] but i may make a black hat later but for now im sticking with the gloves.

aw yea! and te make up is my LA colors mineral green eyshadow i fished from te bottom of my makeup box with a little copper color right above it withblack liner and mascara and the lips are a purple lipgloss that came in a kit that i didt think i would like but when i tried it on it looked nice! [really complements the green]

Collage Wallet

This is a purse I made from a collection of fashion related cut outs from different magazines I accumulated over the years.I arranged them in a way so they look like they "exist " in the same space and blend well together. This took a bit of time cutting out the pices precisely; and I think that made it that much more special because not only is it a handmade piece , Its a crafted one of a kind piece.

Floor Tile Clutch Purse

This is a clutch i made from my moms left over floor tile. The moment I saw it I saw like OMG that would be a cute clutch! I always loved structured, sturdy purses made from things other than fabric; [wood, metal, ect.] later ill figure out a closure and mabe attatch some chain for the straps and line the inside and put some levers and fabric on the side so it opens at a 30 degree angle and everything in it wont go spilling out

people,its true at you can get a small baggy of eyeshadow pigments f0r a PENNY each!!!!they have 52 colors from shiny to matte shades. you can also sample the primer![cream used before you put your eyeshadow on to make it POP!] The catch? you can pick up to four pigments per order and shipping may vary by area code and state.
