pin stripe me.

i am loving pin striping right now, and adding it to everyday items. i've tried my hand at it many a time, but i lack the steady hand, and the patience for it. so, i am happy that i know a few people who are really talented at this. all of the work features in this post was done by the very talented Mike Mead, check out some of his other work. he gets craaaaaazy with it!!

this is my wallet. a $7.50 steal, at forever 21. got it pin striped, gave it a whole new life... and the look of a much more expensive wallet! they charge so much for things like this at car shows!

he also took care of my good pal rosa's mixer.... neat, huh!!! bella is her daughter's name, but also the name of her new cupcake business.... Bella Cupcakes. check her out, become a fan, and give her some love as well. i've been lucky enough to taste test her pumpkin spice cupcakes...absolutely delicious, my mouth is watering just thinking about them. i was having a bad day when i ate one, but then when i remembered i ate that cupcake, it made me smile. and at $25 for 2 dozen of those bad boys, it is quite a steal. find her info below!!

it's fall, y'all

gee... since it is the middle of NOVEMBER already, guess i should share my halloween pictures, huh?? crazy girl. life gets a little hectic when you work 6 days a week. i just want it to slooooooow down!!

if you're going to get lost in the corn maze, this is the way to go. oh ps my hair is pink.

just a couple'a good lookin ghosties

everybody knows, you've got to search for the perfect pumpkin. even if they have never been to the pumpkin patch before.

a-ha! there they are!! the short and squatty one belongs to me, of course

this is mary mo scarecrow. she tied for 3rd place in the "railroad scare" not bad for last minute, huh? she's pretty gangster on that lowrider bike.

mmmmm..... ooey gooey, sticky, yummy. delicious caramel apples, hot apple cider (spiked with spiced rum,) and it's the great pumpkin charlie brown. the only way to carve pumpkins.

i made the caramel apples on the super quick-and-lazy. just buy a regular sized bag of caramel candies, and unwrap them. put them into a bowl with a little splash of milk, and melt them in the microwave, stirring occasionally. roll your apples up in them, and voila!! let them harden back up in the fridge before you try to eat them, or you will have a mess on your hands!

super deep in concentration here... not gonna lie, its pretty cute.

the super pumpkin masterpieces. mr. krab, and my little flower face skull. i know its hard to see, but she has some pretty rad teeth.

rosie getting into the halloween spirit, with the little catnip pumpkin i got for her at petco for a whopping $1.

nothing too exciting happened on halloween night. went to mcdonald ave, in pajamas. for those who don't know, they put on a pretty great halloween every year. close the street, there is music, a parade, and most of the beautiful houses are completely decked out!! this was one of my favorite displays... too funny.
