Halloween in Wonderland

How friggin adorable is this?!

I should not be spending money unnecessarily since I'm still unemployed but I'm sorry, I could not resist this. It's a pre-order and I got mine at Stop and Scrap with a 15% discount. The discount makes up for the guilt.

I got both the 12x12 and 8x8 pads, along with an extra tag set. It's almost one of those sets that you hate to cut up and use because it's so cute!

I have this cool little fan on my bedside table, the blades are a cloth material so it doesn't require a "cage" around the blades because if you stick your hand near it the blades don't cut. Nifty.

Morticia also thinks it's nifty. I wish I had taken a video instead of a photograph but she loves to stick her face in the moving fan. Silly cat.

I love how cats fit perfect on anything they are sitting on, she's plopped herself on my clock to spy something on the wall to knock off.

Thanks to Angie ..

For her recommendation of using an open book to photograph my rings. I gave it a try and found it a little easier to get a clear picture, and also minus the annoyance of contorting my body on the bathroom floor to photograph the piece.

My Next Hurdle

Seems to be photgraphing rings. It's a bitch doesn't begin to cover it. I am considering buying one of those finger displays that are used at jewelry stores and art fairs. I do find the severed finger incredibly creepy though.

Also I do not have the most exquisite hands, while they are fairly well formed and small in proportion; they photograph as if I have a red rash over my entire hand. "Hi my mother was part lobster." I am able to correct this somewhat with a little use of the tan brush in Corel and softening of the picture, but I sure wish I could find a hand model.

Wanted: Severed beautifully manicured finger

I normally photograph my things on the floor of the bathroom, perhaps I'll move them to higher ground on the sink .....or result to creepy severed finger display.
