just a little update on what i've been up to recently -- i'm so excited for each of these things :) and the holidays are coming up, meaning christmas lights are going up everywhere. lights always make me feel warm inside..i love them.
 a shot from an eye makeup tutorial contest i entered at thebeautydepartment.com. if i don't win, i'll post the tutorial up here. if i do win, i'll link you all to it, of course :)
 a preview of a diy tutorial for my pearl statement necklace! this will be up as a guest blog post on another blogger's page -- it's a surprise for now, and i'll link you all to that one too, of course! grab your jewelry making tools and get ready to make some great gifts for your girlfriends!
