Martha Stewart Style Easter Eggs....Yeah Right

Okay I am no Martha Stewart. My son is now ten and we have been coloring Easter eggs every year and we have tried every kit known to man Tye dyed,camouflage,stenciled,gold leaf, I'm sure if you have kids you totally understand, so this year we purchased a kit with funny faces. Since my son is on Easter Break he is able to stay up later than normal,but of course mom still gets up at the butt crack of dawn to go to work and do all those things we mom's never get a break from,so by the time we colored Easter eggs at 10:30pm I was beyond tired. A little info I TOTALLY lose my mind when I get tired. The proof of this is yet to come.

This is my mad,evil scientist egg. When I was making him all I could hear was mwah,ha,ha,ha.

Here's my rendition of Sloth from the "Goonies" (everyone has seen it whether they admit it or not).The side reads Sloth loves Chunk.

The vampire teeth set me over the edge and I had to create and "Edward"egg. If you live under a rock this character is from the "Twilight" series by Stephanie Meyer.

So you see no Martha Stewart lives here.But who could stand to be like that annoying,know it all wench anyway??

Where The Magic Happens

Once again my studio.
I have shown you the absolute mess of my work area,now I wanted to share with you some of the things that inspire me.
When I purchased my house a few years back I told myself that I was going to strive for the minimalist approach only because  my house is very modest in size I have had to limit the amount of stuff so that it doesn't look like an overdone cluttered mess. I display a few pieces here and there that make me very happy.
But my studio is another story it is bursting with color,vintage goodies,art and other things that truly inspire me.
Mind you this is only one wall, I did not want to overwhelm.
The very lovely Audrey Hepburn.

A super happy vintage needle point.The time it must have taken to make blows my mind.

Festive vintage party decorations,vintage owl prints,and an art project that my son made this year (started out with his name,JOEY, which made the elements of this dog).

Another shot of my mess of a desk but in this one you can see my gorgeous craftsman style lamp,my love of all things paris,colbalt blue vintage bottles with purple globe thistle from the farmers market.It's so loaded with "stuff" the more you look at it,it almost resembles one of my sons I spy books.

Super Sunday ....And Where The Hell Is My Cape??

Sundays are supposed to be a day of rest,but in my uber busy life Sunday is probably the one day of the week I can get the most accomplished. I'll give you a little taste of my "Super Sunday" got up, cleaned my kitchen,did 4 loads of laundry,made 2 batches of soap (farmers market is rolling around too soon),ran to purchase a last minute gift for my son's friend (who's party was today),took a crap load of pictures of my new etsy pretties,made a few pieces of jewelry,listed 3 things in my etsy shop and that was all before 1:00pm. And no cape in sight.

Days like today it would be so great to have a personal assistant,but I am so NOT that important.

I think the term "No rest for the wicked" was coined for me. I flatter myself I'm sure to think that, but boy that's exactly how I feel today!

I'll Show You Mine......

Work area that is. Okay I have been seriously thinking that my work area looks as if an entire bead store blew up and it so happened to land right on my desk. But nope that's not the case at all.  I hate to admit but my work area is a complete disaster.

I have read many blogs where people show all that is perfect, their work areas,their gardens,their kids, their homes, but I am here to say I am by no means perfect, nor would I ever want to be,it seems like a whole lot of effort and for what? I like to enjoy life and all of the little things that go along with it. Perfection is not what I am about,so I  have just shown you the bad and ugly truth of my studio and how imperfect I really am.

The upside to all this is that I work amazingly well under these conditions!!! No joke. Who on Earth could imagine that I get so much done here? No joke I do.

Okay people here's a challenge, show me the good,the bad and the ugly of your work spaces.Come on fess up not everyone is perfect,right?? Well at least I hope not.

It's my first Time.....

Not at all what a pervert would think, I mean my first ever blog post ever.

I have wanted to start a blog now for quite sometime and have put it off for many reasons like, what could I have to possibly say? who the heck would even want to read it???  But oh well here goes. I'm gonna start out slow for my first post. Had a super long few days at work,someone has to do all that managing stuff and pimp out the vitamins and health food!! So I am not my usual (self proclaimed) witty self.

I hope to not only use this for my random musings but also as a place to show off my jewelry,soap and super cool vintage items that I sell maybe a few healthy things toss in here and there.

So beware when you read this you will never know what you are going to get,I'm pretty sure it will be close to reading something that a person with ADD and multiple personalty disorder might write.  No my name is not Sybil it's Rosa (but that actually may be worse)!

And I am very pleased to meet you all!
