Anyway … the rest

Here are the style credits for my look in my last post — ’cause I know you want ’em! Personal stuff is all the way at the bottom of the post, so you can skip it if you want 🙂

Special mention goes to the terrific runny mascara from Tik Tok. I’ve always enjoyed skins with some of these “special-occasion” looks … but don’t usually want to actually buy a skin for one or two photos. The new tattoo layer makeup is absolutely perfect! I can put it on over my usual skin … and its very affordable for this kind of shoot.

Some of you may not have recognized the song lyrics I quoted in my last post, so I would like to share the whole thing with you. I used one stanza in a rather sad way, but this song is an anthem full of hope, and about living without fear of the things we can’t know about, or can’t control. Its about living your own authentic life… anyway. I’m sending this out to Patch, who, like all of us, is just trying to find his own way.

And if you haven’t heard this song, or seen the video … take a look … its really wonderful~

You can spend your whole life buildin’
Something from nothin’
One storm can come and blow it all away
Build it anyway

You can chase a dream
That seems so out of reach
And you know it might not ever come your way
Dream it anyway

God is great
But sometimes life ain’t good
And when I pray
It doesn’t always turn out like I think it should
But I do it anyway
I do it anyway

This world’s gone crazy
It’s hard to believe
That tomorrow will be better than today
Believe it anyway

You can love someone with all your heart
For all the right reasons
In a moment they can choose to walk away
Love ’em anyway

God is great
But sometimes life ain’t good
And when I pray
It doesn’t always turn out like I think it should
But I do it anyway
Yeah – I do it anyway

You can pour your soul out singing
A song you believe in
That tomorrow they’ll forget you ever sang
Sing it anyway
Yea, sing it anyway
Yeah, yeah!

I sing
I dream
I love
anyway

Magpie’s Latest Release

scarab-vendor

Once again — late September and early October have just eaten me up! Good things, challenging things, and everything in between. The Jewelry Fair is over — I hope you were all able to get out for that, as there was some tremendous work to enjoy there. I have now moved my Jewelry Fair release into my main store, Magpie.

I was very pleased with how this piece came out — it was a great construction and texturing challenge for me, and I thoroughly enjoyed making it. And, if you haven’t picked it up already … there’s a free set of coordinating earrings in my subscribo (which you can also find at my main store). While you are there, be sure to check out Magpie’s sister store, Catchpenny, where everything is priced under 20L. (it’s right next door on the plaza — you can’t miss it)

Hopefully back now to a more regular blogging schedule! Thanks to everyone for your continued support 🙂
