Happy Friday! Eye and Ear Candy!

Happy Friday everyone! Stumbled upon Decorated Playlist, a site that streams awesome playlists complete with their very own fab covers. It's run by by designer/former DJ/record collector Simon Foster. I love his illustrations and the page layout for each of his playlists. Music to my ears and eyes!

Holy Macaroni!

First off, sorry for the lack of posts lately. I have no good excuses except that I've been feeling rather lazy lately. Hats off to all the lovely bloggers who post every single day...I just don't know how you do it! Any how, on to today's post. I've had this idea to make necklaces using macaroni forever now and finally found a local bead store that sold the kind of chain I wanted. Using some plastic colored beads found in my craft bin, elbow macaroni or ditalini pasta*, and 22 inches of antique brass double rolo chain, I crafted these fun necklaces. Reminds me of the yarn and rigatoni necklaces we made in kindergarten! The lovely model wearing the necklaces in the two photos is my sister Jenny. *I sprayed the pasta with a coat of matte fixative to waterproof it. No one likes a mushy pasta!

September Mix

It's a new month, which means a new collection of tunes by the lovely Ben. "It's a fun and flirty departure from a summer that's brought downgraded tropical storms and uneventful earthquakes." Enjoy!
