Whimsical Hair Treats

I am very excited to have started making Hair Accessory pieces named Whimsical Hair Treats! I have opened up my etsy store where you can purchase these items here: Whimsical Hair Treats

It's alot of fun making, designing them, and hunting down specific elements at craft stores. I am insired my candy, alice in wonderland(of course!), whimsical forests, seas, mermaids, and sea creatures, victorian eras, stories and books.

I make hand made tulle flowers and design with feathers, swarowski crystals and gems/stones as well as other elements which are then attached to a sturdy pretty alligator clip at the back.

I love peacock feathers! Especially how the change colors in the sun and flash gold, green and teal.

Nautical inspired, I love seahorses and anything to do with the beach.

This one was inspired by the Mad Hatter because it's as colorful as he is! It also reminds me of carnival/circus shows with "freak of nature" characters.

This is one of my favourites as I love girly colors of lavender with pink and pink polka dot feathers with natural feathers.

My First Creation!

I call this the Bleeding Heart Piece with an irridescent Swarowski Heart Pendant.

This is one of my mini's and it reminds me of a cute little candy.

Camping and Gold Digging in Tulameen, BC

I went camping with my boyfriend in a secluded family owned camp site in Tulameen, BC. It was suprisingly really warm in the night but perhaps its because we had so many blankets in our tent. Our chihuahua, Bambi also came along and he growled inside the tent if anyone walked near it even though he was underneath lots of blankets. hehe What I liked about camping with him is that I didn't have to worry where he pooed or peed for once. haha

I was getting better from a cold when we went and I had some strong cough syrup with some beers so when I went to the bathroom in the night with a flashlight, I thought I saw a demon deer and rushed back to my tent hahaha.

I always feel like summer ends so quickly without me doing everything I wanted to do, but I am happy I got to enjoy being in nature.

I love watching the long trees rustle in the wind, butterflies and dragonflies flutter everywhere in the sunlight, then the light slowly vanishing into dark as the eagles sit on top of the highest tree, while the creek never ceases to stop flowing and making sounds of water. I even love the sound of the rain when it hits the tent at night.

Gold- Mining with a Sluice Box.

Water is drawn into the box via pump where the heavier, dense material such as gold is trapped and lighter material migrates out.

Believe it or not, this is around $100 worth of gold.

This is the watery road on the way to the camp site. It was very whimsical. I took a photo of the flower with the road in the background.

Bambi swimming, he hated it. He was quickly swimming back to shore.

The creek which never stops flowing.

Bambi being a cutie.

Mmmmmmm melted marshmallows!

There were some really beautiful, unique clouds at sunset beside my boyfriends families house. They looked like cotton candy space shuttles.

The big long cloud must have been a huge alien space ship in disguise, at least that's what I like to believe.

On the drive back to Vancouver, I loved the big foamy clouds over the mountains.
