It made me sad to think about my four favorite heroes, who are no longer with us: my dad (1928-1997), my younger brother (1967-2010), my father-in-law (1938-2011), and my nephew (1972-2014). Having lost my father-in-law, brother, and nephew in... Decorate the cover of the mini album by first cutting the decorative banner from the Everyday Heroes Die set from black cardstock. Stamp the large word circle from the Everyday Hero Cling Stamp Set with black ink onto white cardstock. Trim the circle and sponge with Antique Linen ink. Stamp the My World Stamp Set image onto a scrap of ivory cardstock with brown ink. Using the globe die cut template from the Everyday Heroes Die set, trim out the globe portion of the image.

An aquarium with skeletal fish swiming in it, a wooden crate containg a live specimen attemts to free himself.

My wardrobe post and video for early 2015 are done ~ I started taking photos and small bits of video in early January so this took over a month to do. It was a lot more work than I thought, putting the dresses on the mannequin and taking them off... As for blouses, I have a hard time finding ones that fit. My shoulders are 39cm wide and many brand / indie brand blouses are 35-37cm and make too short sleeves for my taste, so I buy most of my blouses either custom sized or locally (usually second hand / vintage places) where I can try them on. Many of... A girl can never have too many shoes ~ I'm not really supposed to wear heels since I have Hypermobility Syndrome (HMS - basically my joints move way too much, so if I fall I won't sprain my ankle, I'll break it) but I've learned to walk with them... I'm starting with cheaper wigs to find out what kind of ones I want - for example I learned that I do NOT like long and curly ones, so I'm glad I only spent ~10€ to find that out. I want more though, and will get more expensive ones when I figure out what I'll wear the most.
