For my next project I want to do a medium sized piece or maybe group of small hair pins for the upcoming spring giveaway. Spring is all about cherry blossoms in Japan, so I think that’s what I’m going to go for.
Since my birthday is coming up (in February) I’m thinking about making a headband for myself. I have pretty short hair, and I have always loved headbands, so it seems like a good choice, although it will take a long while to complete. Other ideas include a comb or kanzashi decorated box. I have a bunch of small cardboard ones in various shapes. I just need to give them a coat of white paint and I’ll be ready to start. I’m thinking the color scheme will be violet (amethyst, the February birthstone, is purple) and aqua blue with a bright minty green for the leaves. I also want to try experimenting with gold and/or silver leaf dust to see if I can get a metallic sheen to my petals.
Other thank fiddling around a little bit with kanzashi petals, I also played a little Minecraft. I started a new server last weekend with Allison (aka, the Saibeast), Tim and Ruby. I like driving my friends crazy by building pefectly square 7×7 mines with floors every four blocks down. That’s pretty boring stuff, but this is not:
A baby zombie riding a chicken! Allison got this screen cap cause it died right after I saw it, but it’s so cute! Ah, Minecraft. You never cease to amaze me.
