urban outfitters

I hate to admit it, but Urban Outfitters has some pretty neat things. Their clothes are a different story…i’m talking about their apartment & home stuff. I’m usually not one to shop there…the clothes are terribly overpriced and not well made. Also, it always bothers me when a store tries to push the whole “DIY” thing, trying to make it trendy while their products are mass produced in sweatshops (same thing with the new “green” trend). Anyway, with my dislike for their clothes aside, i was browsing the site for inspiration since my room has recently been painted and i need some decorating ideas. I found some cool things and got some good inspiration, here’s some of it:

I love how funky and colorful this is. It’s not too often you see unique picture frames…i want to try and make one.

hard candy

I just saw the movie “Hard Candy”…I made a small wallpaper and some simple icons.  I’ve wanted to see this movie for awhile…it was great.  Feel free to take.

While browsing Threadless, i noticed they had some shirts on sale for $5. I jumped on the bandwagon, and bought this one:


“Frida’s Garden”

With shipping it came to a little less than $10, pretty good deal I think. I got a Men’s XL…i’m going to make it into a cute dress. Mmm i think i need to stop shopping just a little bit.

Made these earrings today for my Etsy shop. I wanna start getting into jewelry making…i’m starting off super simple. I’ve been searching Ebay for cute/kitschy charms to make into earrings, necklaces, etc. I bought some guitar picks…i can’t wait to make them into some sweet necklaces.
