6 months!!!

i can't believe i'm taking the time to blog right now!!!

i'm rushing around trying to clean the apartment, get pretty & make a dinner before the boyf gets home in an hour!!! BUT i was in desperate need of a smoke & some fresh air (between candles, curling iron & the oven, it was getting a bit hot!!!)
so, i thought, on my mini break, i'd check in with you all.

on the menu: baked chicken breast, broc, rice & home-made chicken gravy!

on the bod [mom, if you're reading, skip this part...]: a sexy black lace [sooo soft] teddy/nighty with hot pink knickers & bra! lots of glitzy jewels... since i never have any reason to wear them...

gifties: i only had a bit of money, but i bought some household stuff that we needed, including a little bookshelf he's been wanting. i also got a super cute card with a red glitter chili pepper that says "i'm hot for you". hahah.

big deal: ya, it's been 6 months.. it seems like its been 6 years... but this is a very odd relationship when it comes to milestones & order... we've been dating for 6 months, living together for 3 & tonight, i think i'm gunna drop the "L" bomb! eek!

well, i've got about 45 mins to get sexy, cook gravy & pick out mood music!!!

wish me luck!

luv it*

sugar skulls

i'm so obsessed with sugar skulls.

i've been painting skulls, skull masks, cutouts, bottle, canvas, all of sugar skulls...

i want to make cookies to look like these (even tho i think this is fabric swatches):

how amazing! They are so beautiful!

I've been wanting to celebrate the Day of the Dead [Dia de los Muertos] for years, but i never ended up being able to. I'm going to celebrate this year, pay homage to the friends & family that i've lost in my life.

I'm working on my skulls for both Halloween & DotD.

I'm going to also work on some projects for my ETSY Shop!

Has anyone ever celebrated? What did you do? Do you have sugar skulls or photos of any DotD art?

Here's some more photos that i've found, drooled over, & been inspired by:

then, there's this unreal piece of gorgeousness, which i actually JUST saw, & looks a lot like a project i've been working on for a few days!

check *twitterpated pretty* in the next week to see updated items!
