Happy New Years From Me To You!

Hello Everyone!

In celebration of the upcoming New Year I have decided to do a giveaway! The lucky winner will receive a $20 dollar gift certificate redeemable at either of my Etsy shops. ( ToBeTattooed or TheHipRevolution ) The drawing will occur on New Years Day & the winner will be posted here & notified by email. The gift certificate must be redeemed within 60 days of winning, and can only be redeemed at one of the shops. Also- any remaining balance on the gift certificate will be nullified, so be sure to use it all up :)

Ok- so now onto the fun stuff! Its easy to enter and just as easy to win! To be considered-
First- become a follower on my blog
Second- pick your favorite item from either of my shops and post it here with a link. Also, include your email or Etsy shop link- this is how you will be notified!

Names will be drawn on the first of the year! Only one entry per person no matter how many items you post!

The winner will be notified by email, and once you choose what you would like to use the gift certificate on, you can convo me at the shop of choice and I will adjust the price to reflect the $20 gift certificate.

Thank You for your participation & Have a Happy New Year!

Hoopy Holidays!

I am so excited! This week has surely been my busiest with The Hip Revolution! I was swamped with orders for lovely hoops. I think what really thrills me is the fact that people were ordering hoops for either themselves or as gifts- such an amzing gift that promotes all around well- being!

Speaking of well- being, I am working on some new resolutions/ devotions to start off 2010 with. And I am getting ready to post a blog on what to prepare for if you are moving cross country- but I wanted to drop in so no one felt abandoned!

Wishing everyone a lovely week!

Voila! Enjoy your day!

New Mandala Style Flowers

Brrr!! It's just about 30 degrees outside here in Oly (WA)!! Hope life is warmer and a bit more sunny for the rest of you!

I just wanted to post an update on some of my new artworks. Wish me luck- this upcoming week is my first venture in finding a shop to work at here in town. I have a meeting on Tuesday with a shopowner locally :) ( Ohmmmm )

Anyways- I painted a few things this week- mainly just these two flowers- been trying out some geometric stuff trying to get my line work more steady and consistent.

This particular piece is half mandala half fleur. No real dedication in style- but I like the tones I went with... I went with more earthy tones for my second one which I will post next time as a p.s.

Finally- I painted this traditional style dagger this week too.

Both of these originals will be on my Etsy!
So although it has become grey and extremely nippy I am doing my best to remain proactive! TUSH! Burlesque is already on the road for the next show which is going to be Thursday February 11, 2010 at The Royal in Olympia, WA.

Until some more good news comes about- enjoy your days!

Knit Creations

Hi Everyone!
I hope everyone is enjoying the season! <3 Family & <3 Friends!

I am so happy to finally have finished my most recent project. I have always wanted to knit- but was never able to grasp the ((surprisingly simple- once you get it ;)) "how-to" of it. This past week I decided on a random trip to Micheal's- in a random moment of randomness to pick up a ball of yarn and some needles. A short ride home and 10 minutes to research and I was off to my first knitting experience. I had tried a few times before- unsuccessfully and always put it down and forgot about it. But this time was different- I did some research, cast-on and was off to a blissful rhythmic knitting voyage. LoL!

Anyways- the first thing I knit was this lovely rich cowl- which I then decorated to my taste and have thus named the Luxe Cowl. Its darling- but punky and I think fits my style excellently!

It was really fun- although somewhat more detail oriented then I had originally expected- and I have never worked with lace before but a few hours and Voila!

So then I was off to my 2nd creation- the uber sext Corset Cuff- a little lace, a little sparkle and Mee-ow! I love this incredibly comfortable and warm wrist cuff. Lady like yet casual and fun spirited!

I just wanted to post a sneak peek before I list them on Etsy- they will be custom order so you can pick the colors!


p.s. I have tons of new art- including Robots & Corsets!
