Walgreens Villians Make-up

I was up in beautiful Big Bear this weekend when I saw this in the local Walgreens:

So cool!  I picked up some of the make-up remover wipes that had all three girls (Queen, Maleficent, and Ursula) on the bag.  They also had blush, lipstick, eye shadows and a beauty book that featured the Evil Queen.  There was also some hair accessories by Scruncci.  Being on vacation, I didn't think to snap any pictures of the other items.  I already visited my local Walgreens with no luck finding this Fall 2015 line.  I am on the hunt for an Evil Queen make-up bag and brushes. Apparently, these starting popping up in stores in late August.

I Love Reading Blogs!

I've been using Feedly for a long time now.  I love using this reader to keep all my blog articles in one spot and fit in my nightly reading.  This way I can read hundreds of blogs all at once!

Here is the list of the blogs and feeds that I have in my account.  Many of these sites do not post often and some of these sites may be inactive now.  The one downside to reading blogs in a reader is certain blog sites block the entire article so the only way to read the complete article is to go to the site itself - but with this many sites, there is no way I'm going to all of these sites every day!

Good Housekeeping November 1937

I got this fantastic magazine in the mail the other day - It's amazing how much more substantial magazines of the past are!  Poor children whose parents read them this as a bedtime story - part two was in Good Housekeeping December's issue!  (look for post on that next week!)  The story is fun to read and the art chosen to accompany it is so fantastic.  However, I admit, that the advertisements really caught my eye!

WonderGround Gallery Artist Jackie Huang

I love the original art that appears in WonderGround Gallery.  Sometimes an artist's interpretation is so unexpected it is fascinating and other times I don't understand it at all.  One artist that I've been taken with is Jackie Huang.  I have several prints of hers and was thrilled to meet her at WonderCon this spring.  While I was talking with her, she mentioned that I should be sure to check out the gallery in August as she was doing some princess pieces.  Well, she did even better than that - check out her piece from the gallery!

The seven dwarfs!  It is hard to tell from my photo - but her work is all done by paper piecing - tiny pieces built on top of each other creating an amazing 3D piece.  Unfortunately the original had already sold by the time I got there, so I never did get to see it (or be faced with the decision to purchase it).  I did however get a chance to talk with her and have her sign a print and a postcard.  Her website has a much more detailed photo - be sure to check it out!
