About

I'm from Dublin, Ireland. My boyfriend and I left Ireland in 2003 and ended up here in Iceland in June 2004. I recently started being crafty, so this is a whole new exciting world for me! I am currently crazy about knitting and baking Happy

XD You're welcome! I guess that means you can't use I awesome hair sticks anymore, either? I'm a recent member of the short-haired girls' club, too. But I'm trying to grow it out. It's like watching paint dry...

Thanks for the compliments. Yes, the photos are iron. I got the paper at WalMart, then you just print them out from your printer, then iron on! And they are completely washable. Very easy!

thanks for the comment on my blog, i really didnt follow a certain website with the stove top one, I just got a pot of water and wating for it to boil and then placed another metal bowl ontop of the boiling water pot and put my Vaseline in the bowl and waited till it melted till its a liquid and added the cocoa in and waited it it disappeared, same with if you want to use some lipstick for some color or koolaid, just wait till it melts then turn it off and wait a few seconds to cool down enough were it starts to thicken up and place it in your container and poof! Happy wow thats alot to put on your comment lol, hope you dont mind. and if you have any questions let me know. I got 25 containers off ebay for 3 bucks and a quarter. Happy

Hah. it' not as hard as the label makes it sound. it says to use a dry setting on the iron, but that didnt work, so i just used the regular "steam" cotton setting on mine and it worked fine. you just have to be patient with it. Happy

If/when you do read Flowers in the Attic, let me know how you like it!

Chloe did go quite crazy when we first got Dorian. She still doesn't like it much, but she's much more comfortable now that she knows she isn't being forgotten about, as if she ever could be. She's sort of always the center of attention.

Chloe's the kitty, and Dorian's the rabbit. (Dorian Gray, he's a gray rabbit). They do not get along, they have seperate rooms, ha. Dorian is friendly, but Chloe is Queen Bee and likes to keep it that way.

Oooooh, I would love to see Damien in concert. That would be fantastic!

While i love Flowers in the Attic, it WOULD scare a child, and it might freak you out a bit, too. I always find V.C Andrews novels in the horror section at the book store, not because they are gory really, but the things that happen are just frightening. For instance, Flowers in the Attic is about four children who are locked away in an attic. I don't want to give away too much, but it's frightening. Which is part of what I like about it, you just never know what's going to happen next!

Hello there! I saw you on the boards (six feet under soundtrack!) and thought I'd go ahead and add you. You have wonderful taste in music! (Damien Rice!) Plus, you like fairies, crafts, and kitties.
It's nice to meet you!

Hmmm. Well normally I just make something that I know I would personally like or someone close to me would like. I find it hard to make things in colors I dont like or some of the stuff they have in the magazines :-p Some of the stuff just looks eww to me lol.

Oh yay! glad to have helped with the crimp beads. I'm working on a floating bead necklace now with crimp beads and cursing them. Big fingers and little little beads no good. Sigh.

Nice to meet you to,

For a while I made a special bookmark for each book I was reading to match the topic or story inside - it was really fun!

I should get back to it...
