This nail lady is brilliant! Visit
her youtube channel here and see what other stuff you can find. In the meantime here are a few Valentine’s Day tutorials from Professional DQ:
Voodoo and hearts? Of course!
Pirates and hearts? Why not!
Skulls and hearts? Hooray!
Black and white striped gothic hearts? Woo hoo!
More gothic hearts? Goodness!
Sparkly pink heart pendant (but still cool, don’t panic)
I finished writing my book today, what joy! Perhaps I will start a cult and murder my followers as celebration. Or convince them to insert bread rolls somewhere unpleasant.
I would like to share this post of art by Scottish lady Rachel Maclean. I watched her short films and there is something revoltingly wonderful about the phantasmagoria. Enjoy!
Two posts in one day?! Has my cold driven me to the brink of madness? Yes, yes it has.
Well, I couldn’t resist sharing these fantastical and bizarre Alice in Wonderland esque photos by Design Army (

I’m obsessed with tea parties, probably because I don’t really drink anymore. But,
of course, no boring parties for me. Here’s a few unusual things you could bring to proceedings:
First off I love psychedelia, not sure why I just always have. Why not get some
mugs to match, or for an extra boost of weirdness how about one of these Day of the Dead sugar skull mugs? I’ve got mine!
Or if you prefer drinking vessels that are even spookier, how about these
surprisingly sinister mugs?
And let’s not forget there will be those that don’t like tea (weirdos). Here’s a quick how to on
serving blacklight lemonade.
Of course no mad hatter’s psychedelic party would be complete without rainbow cupcakes,
get the recipe here.
If something a little more disturbing is your thing, and let’s face it why wouldn’t it be, try these. First up is a savoury centre piece treat,
Zombie Head Cheese.
Next is a recipe for
melting witch cookies. Rather timely with the release of this new Wizard of Oz movie.
And lastly my favourite recipes from Halloween Culture. First is the
oreo spider web cookies, and to decorate all those cakes here’s a how to for edible glass sculptures.
Super happy fun times!
Me, a sugar skull mug and a skull onesie. You wish you were me
At easter when I was small my sisters and I would make a scene of hatching chicks using cotton wool, paint and real egg shells. Its bizarre to think that the girls who would sneak off to raves in the middle of the night would also spend time with me making things.
Anyway…spring and easter are looming and that means three things; chocolates, hormones and arts and crafts. And apparently zombies. Four things. Click on the links for how tos or to purchase these seasonal lovelies.
Zombie poppet bunnies
Firstly, they won’t be around for long but the
zombie poppet bunnies are rather cute.
I found a very different idea for egg decorating on

If psychedelic colours are more your thing, combine their forces with chocolate as found on
Bakerella’s cake pops
Or pretend you’re starring alongside Dennis Hopper and Peter Fonda in
The Trip with the edible psychedelic delights on Barnorama.

I love my job. This is what I see on my way into the room I work in at the college of a morning…lots and lots of nude mes (me’s?). I think the pictures are lovely:
That's right...I get paid to sleep
Here’s another painting artist and fellow Braintree Ways member Steve Waring did of me. Have a look at his
