Manic Monday: Eccentric Lilithine

I admit that I got a bit sidetracked in Lilithine's shop. I fell in love with her Tree of Life necklaces and had a hard time moving away from them long enough to check out everything else.

Once my focus drifted a bit, I was pleased to find that the Trees were not alone in the shop as being lovely representations of nature. This bird's nest necklace became another quick favorite.

Then there are the gorgeously flowy skirts. The fabrics are lovely, and they all look comfortable enough to wear for a day out in the sun while still being pretty enough to fit in perfectly at the office. Lillithine blends function and a natural touch gorgeously in every item, and I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!

Manic Monday: Joys of Jess

Though Jess is busy with her beautiful new baby, her shop is still a wonderful place to be. And, of course, if you aren't interested in buying, you can always hover around her blog and enjoy the beyond adorable baby pictures.

Personally I think her customized teacher name embroidery is one of the best teacher gifts I've ever seen. Sweet and something that the teacher can use as a nameplate to brighten up the room. Plus I love school supplies and it reminds me of writing in handwriting books as a kid.

There are a ton of great note cards in the shop, but I eventually settled on showing the octopus cards off. It was a close contest with the robots, but I had to go with my gut. Basically there's far too many pretty things for me to show them all off, so do yourself a favor and go check it all out for yourself!

Manic Monday: Sassy Packrat

I'll start by saying that Sassy is one of my favorite Twitter buds. What? Stop looking at me like that isn't enough! Oh, fine. I'll give you more, although I think being fun and funny and entertaining is always enough.

Are you seeing the cuteness here? I love a good cute critter, and Sassy Pack Rat Studios offers some of the cutest critters out there. The penguins to the right here are my absolute favorites.

Looking for something a little more sophisticated to decorate with? Maybe something with a retro flair? This owl is too cool not to love. And if neither of these thrill you, there are plenty more items to look through in the shop, so stop by and check it out!

Barbie Murders Collections

Barbie Murders 07, originally uploaded by wildemoon.
I am considering putting together some duos and trios of Barbie Murders pictures to sell at Wilde Designs. These collections would be either 8.5x11 or 4x6 and include two or three Barbie Murders shots slightly discounted from buying them individually. I am also considering including shots from the original session that are not currently for sale. Those shots would not be available individually but only as part of the collections.

What do you think? What size would you purchase?

UPDATE: I went ahead with it, and there are now collections up for sale!

Manic Monday: John & Kimber Perry

Punk fashion with a feminine edge. The standout here is obviously the creative and wonderfully colorful tutus, but there's plenty more in store.

There's a little bit of everything on display here. From hardcore rocker to sweet accessories you could put on a kid heading off to school for the first time, you can find it! I love the items and the product shots which always show every item off to full advantage.

Naturally my own taste runs to the more oddball punk rock stuff. For someone who owns and wears very few skulls, I admit to falling easily in love with skull-centric items. Especially pink skulls. C'mon, it's CUTE!
