It's been a while... but my love of this scent, and the fact that the name skeeves eviltemptress to no end, i HAD to do this! LOL!

Meet and Sniff hangover

oh my. how do i describe the amazing experience of the meet and sniff?   meet. hug. hug dog. sniff. eat. sniff. hug dog. eat dessert. sniff. buy. sniff. buy. sniff. sigh. rest a little. sniff. eat. hug dog. leave.   my nose is still recovering. some scent, possibly one i took, may bother me. i am not too sure which one.   i am taking it slow with testing. after sampling eviltemptress's scents friday night, sniffing all day saturday, then sniffing what each other bought saturday night... and enabling my friends on sunday. my nose is overwhelmed!   but my boxes are much more full now! my wishlist is longer (and better refined...) i still have to update some reviews on bpal that didn't get posted yet, and continue to test all this new stuff!   the meet and sniff was a lot of fun, and i look forward to doing it again. i loved sampling so many scents, because it's so hard to judge based on descriptions and reviews alone! and i met some really cool people. and a really cool dog. and a really cool kid. that cat was cool too, even though i barely saw her.   oh and did i mention beard papa???? that was ALMOST better than the sniffies.   photos coming soon.

i'm head over heels in love...

with     in fact my review (will post eventually) has a new term i made up (maybe it's been done before?)   i had a nosegasm.   only other one that i've had that with is kathmandu!

one more!

i lied. 3 more. (I came back later with these 2)       and one more again...         ok really. done now. i mean it. i'm going to bed!!!     also, i got my underpants today!!! eeeee!   i can't decide what i think about it. it is more foody/sweet than i'd like, but after the drydown, there are times i love it and times i think "eh". i'll wear it one more time, and share with eviltemptress and everyone at the meet & sniff, and i'll reconsider whether i want to keep it or not!   eta: i may keep an imp, but i am going to trade/sell the rest, eviltemptress and people at the meet & sniff have first dibs, and i have a buyer lined up for anything that's left over.

icons

well eviltemptress has been so good at the icons i've been intimidated... but i have a new favorite scent tonight, and so i made an icon for it!     edited to add another one! or more...           usual disclaimers, do not hotlink, save to your own site (photobucket.com rocks!)

Henna Boxes

I did henna on two boxes but i can only show you one! (one's a gift for somebody!!!) anyway - my "test" one was a smaller box i already had on hand. it doesn't fit bottles, only some imps if they are laying down. anyway, it was a good practice run!     i'll let the henna sit for a a few days, then remove the paste, wipe ammonia to get the henna stain to darken, and stain or seal the box!   more to come...   goodnight!

Storage Boxes

Finished my first two!!   They are both even prettier in person - the blue one has glitter on the top, and some on the paper inside. I just have to decide if/how to seal it. I'm thinking a spray finish very lightly, just on the top/outside.   Here's one - it came with dividers (it's actually for tea) which i painted white, they just aren't dry enough to put back in yet. (you can see them in the photo of the previous post, that's this box open before i started.) i'm probably keeping this one for myself!!         And the second - I made dividers out of balsa wood. a pain in the ass, but they work!!

Imp Boxes

So I decorated my ammo imp boxes - i also purchased a bunch of bigger boxes that will hold bottles too and started decorating them!   Here are some photos of the two ammo boxes - paper, acrylic gel gloss, and gold leaf (buddha themes - from a japanese art book and a postcard from thailand)             wooden boxes waiting to be decorated! (sale on unfinished wood at AC Moore! I have a lot in plan for these, some paint, some decoupage, some henna... fun!!)
