Lots to show off!

It has been a while since I posted. Mostly because nobody reads this anyway. Except my facebook friends. When I tell them to. So, yeah.... Here goes.
First, the makeup ones: 
I don't cake it on like they do on pics. And I suck at mascara and eyeliner, so you get the plain jane version on me.

Same problem again, I don't cake it on, so pics don't look that great, but I like the way this style was. I've done it a couple times.

NExt up, hair:
I really this one best, but there was no way I could do it on myself
So I kind of went for this one instead:
which turned out like this:
(crappy pic, sorry)
I also learned how to do a fishtail braid:

Let's move on to food:
I made this
IT was muy delicioso.
I also made these
which turned out AMAZING (I used Paula Deen's recipe)

I also combined this
with this:
which ended up like this:
(I colored the dough)

Since we're on the Valentine's post, you should know that I saw this card:
which I adore, but since I am so much geekier than JUST Harry Potter, this is the card I made for Roger:
And I made a really cute banner that I found as well:
which turned out like this

One of the first pins I ever pinned was this:
and I finally got around to doing it. I loved it so much that I made TWO!

Lastly- I made this my phone's wallpaper

First February Pinfest

So, I have noticed that I go through phases in my crafting. I try sewing for a while, then reading, then art journaling, etc....

Right now I'm into art journaling!

For example, here are the pins:

Those two pins equaled these two art journal pages. (I have a full sized journal and a mini one as well)

Then I found these inspirations:

and mine came out like this (I like the big page MUCH better than the small one which ended up being far too Halloweeny)

Then there was this GORGEOUS, GORGEOUS room- that I want SO badly!! But, of course, will never have.
 Isn't that SWOONworthy?
Here is the closest I will ever get (I like the small page better, too)

 Well- I like the peacock on the big page better, but the colors are brighter on the small page.

I did do one sewing thing, though, Paisley needed a hairband! Then I remembered this
but I'm too cheap to go buy jersey, so I went to the dollar store, bought a pair of tights, and made this:
Cute, eh?!

Last, but not least, I read this:
The story was really good, but I think the f word was in there between 40-50 times. Which is far, FAR too much for me.

Have another pin happy week. Here is one more set of Art Journal pages, but I didn't have pins to inspire, just a friend, Jeanette. These are her favorite colors.
