This kinda freaked me out....

I've always been an apple-aficianado, engulfed in the mass of hype and pretty packaging that comes with all mac products in addition to their astounding performance (my powerbook has served me well for the last 7 years and soon I plan to upgrade to a shiny macbook pro)...but lo and behold, 'cult of mac' followers might get a kick out of this recent times, artisans have embraced apple products and now you can see everything from apple keyboard jewelry, to miniature ipod cases infiltrating the craft world. Polymer clay is no exception --miniature ipod charms and other mac-geekery crop up frequently in the sculpey/fimo world. I'm all for this homage to the much-loved computers, but I don't think I could sleep at night with this doll staring at me!

Etsy Finds

Lately I've been on an Etsy fashion-kick... Living with the word "RECESSION" on a daily basis has made me mindful of selective-spending more than ever and when it comes to having some extra cash for fanciful indulgences such as clothes or accessory shopping, what better way than to find items that not only support amazing artists from across the world, but stand alone as totally unique and one-of-a-kind finds...Below are some inspirational items I recently acquired and am totally excited about --these people are simply awesome and if you have a chance, check out their etsy shops and show them your support!
