What I do

This is where I have been volunteering my Saturday afternoons for about one year now. Rock Paper Scissors Collective.

It's a great community space where anyone can come and participate in the artistic process. There are sewing labs, craft classes, a gallery, retail store and zine library.

This month's show is by Patchwerk Press.
We work in collaboration with Patchwerk on Screenprint classes. They are also collectively run which I totally respect.

These dresses were handmade by a collective member from recycled materials.

as was the window display. Awesome Patchwork dress.

We also have a retail store. The sequin headband was made by moi.

This picture to the right is of a lovely English girl that stopped by on our Friday opening.
LOVE her hat. She was entirely adorable.

I'm a winner

I finally won something, a Maybelline makeup bag with makeup via Refinery 29. To be fair, this was an easy win. You had to say who your favorite Sci-Fi character re costuming. The top 50 - Yes, 50!- would win the prize. Of course I answered, the entire cast of Dune. That was an easy one. I counted the answers, only 54 people entered.
So this shows up today and besides the standard fare i have now discovered a lip-stain pen. Why did i not know about this before ? lipstick, combined with a pen ??? fantastic.

I am a dork

In my quest to cull as much free stuff as possible by winning contests, I find myself losing my shame. Here is the photographic evidence. Mixed prints contest for Maybelline on Facebook.
I am a dork. I know, Florals and polka dots, too easy.
