As much as I’d love to just weigh down this post with a dozen or so photos of the amazing earrings and brooches StarBrightGirl creates, I realize providing a link and promising your enjoyment is a much better option. So I’ll show you a few pictures just to give you the idea of what incredible stuff she makes.
There are a whole bunch of pop culture jewelry and some cult classics stuff. This woman is my hero.

The story behind this song’s discovery:
I used to work in the central library in my city where there was this one girl who had the oddest personality, but overall was very kind to me and my n00b self. Let’s call her Lizzie. Lizzie was into roller derby, the macabre, and all sorts of odd bands I had never heard of. Lizzie, my friends, was my first encounter with the hipster kind. One day while we were working diligently, as all librarians do when no one is there to watch them, Lizzie popped in a CD (yes, a CD, because we the librarians prefer vintage to iPods) which played the downright oddest songs I’d ever heard. And thanks to Lizzie, I now have one weird song I can power walk to and dance to when I’m feeling down. Ah, girl power at its strangest…

Title: The Last Chip
Year Produced: 2009
Level of Education: High School, Senior Year
Summary: A young couple is trapped in their school’s television studio after school has already ended. To make matters worse, they’re trapped on Valentine’s Day. A fight breaks out over who gets to eat the last chip.
Additional Notes: This was my dinner scene for the NOCTI exam I had to take to get my film/video/television certification added to my high school diploma. I passed the other part of the exam and now have a sticker on my diploma telling me I know enough to make a movie or work in television.
Number of People Who Know What the NOCTi Exam Is: *cricket chirp*

Let me start by saying I’m not trying to offend anyone who believes themselves to be indie. I know what the original indie style is and what it stands for. I find it amusing to Google “indie fashion” and see the trendicized version of indie versus the serious indies who are truly about steering clear of the mainstream. To me, there is nothing wrong with either version. This being said, I have some pictures I’d like to share of a few fashions I find quite attractive.
Let us begin with the following:

Hello all! If you’re reading this, I’d like to give you a massive cyber hug because your support makes my day. Possibly my week. We’ll see. Anyway, on to a brief description of this blog so you know whether or not you’re wasting your time. I’ve provided what I will cover in list format because paragraphs can be so tedious. Sigh. The list:
- movies, including my own productions and reviews of those out in theaters
- fashion, including DIY tips, my own outfits, and trends/items I like
- crafts, from tutorials to things I’d love to learn how to do
- cooking and baking recipes, because I love to share
- the occasional weight loss update, including health tidbits, fun exercises, and my goals
- organizational tips, catered to deal with the messy person in each of us
- alerts for sales at my online store
Fin! I’ve decided it would be more fun to take requests from people, so if you have a question or suggestion for a tutorial, post, recipe, etc., etc. do feel free to leave a comment or ask me. I’ll see what I can scrounge up. In the meantime, I’ll put it out there that if you follow me, I will return the favor. =) Now, this post has served its purpose and thus will conclude in 3…2…
