Alivan's Wand Shop

For Christmas my little cousin asked for a wand, like from Harry Potter. I have one from about 5 years ago from Alivan's as well. In order to get the free shipping we needed to add another item, and since I'm a gargantuan Harry Potter nerd...I ordered myself another wand as well.

 This is the African Black Woodwand. Made obviously out of African Blackwood  wood. Its beautiful wood.

This is my cousin's Elder wand. Its similar to Dumbledore's Elder wand in Harry Potter, but its not and exact replica.

These wands are beautifully hand crafted out of wood. They're totally worth the price paid.

Cubee Craft Tree Decorations....

I currently work at a library as the graphics assistant, and one of my jobs was to create the decorations for the 'Festival of Trees' at a local mall. The theme this year was "Favorites", and since they let me do whatever I wanted the theme for us was Superheros! I used some of the designs on Cubeecraft.com for the ornaments, and then created the superheros they didn't have. Like the Incredibles. They made absolutely adorable ornaments. I worked with one volunteer and we cut and put together 60 Cubees.

Jack from the Incredibles..which I created the design for.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2!

Today Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 comes out on DVD. I had pre-ordered it on Amazon about 2 months ago. All I have to say is that that DVD better be waiting on my doorstep when I get home from work Friday! My family is having a mini Potter marathon. Were going to watch the Deathly Hallows parts 1 & 2 back to back. Over Christmas break is when we're having the real Potter Marathon...all 8 movies consecutively....cannot wait for that :)

 My sister and I on Halloween. She was Columbia from the Rocky Horror Picture Show. I was Batman.

You can't see it, but my shirt has a cape :) It attaches with velcro. Its pretty epic. 

Halloween Nails: Mummy

Unfortunately I'm a moron and thought I had taken a picture right after I did them, but I had only taken the 'glowing' pictures. So sorry for the giant chips and general awefulness of the pictures.  You get the gist though....

Drawn 2: Dark Flight

Drawn 2: Dark Flight is a game I found for my iPad. I was browsing games in the App store when I came across a trial version of this game. Normally I don't pay more than $2.99 for any app, but the graphics are so beautiful! I especially love the 'paper animation' bits. They are soooooo lovely. The music is wonderful. I wish the game was longer, but I have absolutely no regrets about purchasing this. I just downloaded Drawn 1, because of how addictive and beautiful this game was. This is a puzzle based game. It is available for PCs as well.

My favorite part of the game.

Super Hero Nails

I'm currently on a Big Bang Theory kick. Right now I'm up to season 3. I watched my first episode a week ago. I really love all the superhero shirts Sheldon wears, so I decided to do some superhero nails.

Chicago Marathon

My cousin is running in the Chicago Marathon today. I'm going with most of my family to cheer him on. It's pretty exciting because he qualified for the Elite group. :) This is one of the posters I made for him.

Sally Hanson Nail Stickers

I added some black gems to add a bit of sparkle.

This is the first time I've tried the stickers. I expected them to last at least a week, but after 5 days there were major cracks and the bottoms were starting to lift up. I'm pretty disappointed with them. They're too expensive for me to purchase again.

X-Men First Class Nail Art

In honor of the new X-Men movie release to DVD I decided to do some X-Men themed nails. I really liked this movie a lot. James MacAvoy is such a stud.
I based my design off the X-Men suits they had in this movie. The navy blue and yellow.
