Here are the color versions I decided on for my FA button set!

1. Argyle. It is awesome.

2. These will be debuting this weekend at Bodyslam!, put on by Love Your Body Detroit.

3. I have no idea what to expect, but I’m going to test out OOTD prints as well.  Just some of my favorites, and a few copies of each at that.

4.  The buttons, at least, will go up in the store next week!

After this very strenuous work week, I am really looking forward to the weekend.

We are having a summer social on Thursday July 19th!

Come and hang out with fellow awesome people. There is not set agenda beyond having a good time, so come hang out in a low pressure setting. Circa has a nice menu, booze, and we’ll provide the awesome company. 

There will be a free pitcher or two of beer, first come first serve, and possibly some free foods as well!

Let us know you are coming by RSVPing on our facebook event page!

My submission for Love Your Body Day 2011.  Amanda of Love Your Body Detroit sent me a silver piggy bank, and I transformed it into Hyacinth, the fat ballet-dancing hippo from Disney’s 1940 film, Fantasia!

I was a little distraught that I had to give her away, but I’m so happy with how she turned out, and I have ideas on how I could have improved it, so I may make another one.

Her snout and cheeks were sculpted right onto the piggy with Sculpey, baked, and then she was primed and painted with acrylics.  Her little back feet have a coat of gold glitter nail polish for the ballet slippers, just because.  Then I sprayed her with an aerosol satin sealing spray, and hot-glued on her tutu material with gold glitter hot-glue.  The material is actually a Disney-branded trim, too!
