My photo
i live the simple life so to speak, but a bit of an eccentric one. i have an extensive vintage my little pony collection and shelves of only the geekiest lunch boxes around. nerd? perhaps. really i love to collect anything vintage and i enjoy being a big kid entirely too much. i love to sew and make cute things. i am vegetarian; i love to cook and bake. i try and be conscious of the decisions i make in this life. i recycle. i reuse. i compost. i try to live as plastic free as possible. hippy? no. hippies never looked this good in a 50's dress and high heels.

Princess Pinkstar!!!! you are amazing! I love everything so much~!! You really did give a box that made me go WOW!!!

my first custom??? ... working in progress...

In the past, I have made in very clear, that customs is not my thing. I don't have a very good reason as to why, so I guess I will chalk it up to being that my love for all original My Little Ponies, heavily outweighed any desire for customs. That being said, I also have a ton of G3's that I have accumulated being as I just can't leave behind a pony find when I see one, even though I don't collect G3's and I also have a ton of custom pony hair left over from our pony meet tutorials. So I thought, hey, I'm going to give it a go and see what i come up with...and so far....I love it! I'm having so much fun doing my first custom. Being new to rehairing anything, I have so far spent hours rerooting my custom and have only finished the front half of her mane. I'm still not entirely sure of what my vision for er is yet, but here is a picture to share of my work so far...
