I'm in the middle of making her earrings, but they can't be her birthday gift as they arn't finished, and I don't have the stuff I need to finish it.
I can't make her anything out of resin because it won't harden in time.
I have heaps of paper, so I definatly will be making her a really cool card.
Maybe I should just bake a cake?
Though I really should be doing that anyway.
There is alot of polyclay lying about, I could make something out of that. But what?
could try some bookbinding or something, and make her a wee notebook?
Yeh, I think I'll do that.
And make her a wee brooch too.
Book, brooch, card.

I couldn't be bothered with the molds, but I had a buttload of bottlecaps (Thanks Andy!!) to use up. I grab my box of paper, but was feeling totally uninspired, and kind of just sat in front of the fire glumly, surrounded with paper, bottlecaps and glue.
My brothers came home from school early, as both of their schools were flooding. At Emmett's school there was actually a chest deep puddle kids were swimming in. Gross, but whatever does it for them I guess.
Anyway, I go into my room to grab some money from Barrett, and sitting on my desk was a brochure from Alice in Videoland. I had grabbed it ages ago, 'cause I liked the imagery on it, but never got round to doing anything with it, finally, it's day had arrived!
I head back inside with a huge grin on my face, and start cutting out pictures and gluing them in bottlecaps. Spraypainted the caps gold and filled them up with resin.
I didn't want to keep them, but I wasn't sure what to do with them. Sooo, I have decided to put them on here, and have a wee competition, to give them away! Yay.
PICTURE!!! (kinda bad quality? Click on it to see it bigsized!)
Anyway, if you like them and wish for them to be yours, all you need to do is email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with 'Alice in Resinland' as the title, and your name and location as the message by friday august 8th in you are in with a chance to win! I will randomly pick two winners on the saturday (both will get 4 each) and announce it here, and contact you both. Anyone anywhere can enter!
Oh also, keep an eye on this blog, I'll be giving away stuff every month or so!

Sometimes I think if I had a boyfriend, or a job or whatever I wouldn't feel like this, that I'd be happy. But seriously? I know being with someone wouldn't make me feel better, I know that from damn experience. And working? Well, I tried that and I would spend my breaks in the toilets crying. I didn't have a bad job, my work was easy, my workmates amazing, it just still upset me.
I used to think that there was some secret to happiness out there. But now, I'm not so sure. So I am retreating deeper and deeper into some fucked up fantasy world. And I mean, that just depresses me even more when I pull myself back to reality and realise how unhappy I am with myself and everything around me. So I go back to my imagination to block everything out. It's a disgusting cycle that I can't seem to break. More and more often I am finding it hard to tell the difference between what is real and what is in my head, and that fuckin' scares me.
I don't know what I am writing anymore, I don't know what I am trying to say. I don't even know who the fuck I am anymore.

The brain and heart.
Brain was made a while ago, but I wanted to photograph the two together, I reallyreally love them.
I made this one for my sister. I was reading through an old Tearaway magazine and there was a few pages of photos from Camp A Low Hum, and my sister was in one of them dressed for the zombie movie/party so I decided to make her a brooch of it. I don't know if she would ever use it, but oh well what the hell. I quite like it!
Thanks for looking!

Been doing a lot more resin stuff, it's seriously quite addicting. Haha.Anyway, after deciding if I put my pieces in a box by the fire to dry they cure in about a day, as opposed to the week they would take in the garage I have been much happier with what I make, and a lot less tempted to touch them and leave yucky finger prints!I think my favourite of these would be the mermaid (topless lady, can't really see her tail) and the dog.
