and the beat goes on

it's not that this is so interesting, but i haven't posted in a while, so here. Here. this is what i've been doing now that school is in "ramming speed ahead." ben hur.
chocolate cake with sprinkle stripes, sorry for the flash that makes it look gross. click here and scroll down to see the finished wedding cake i made last month.

new etchings of "fashion plates." remember those barbie plastic plates where you rub a crayon over the plate to create different outfits? this is my own wonky version. prints forthcoming.

this is for sarah. see, i painted my bookshelf white. it used to be brown. the brown shelf on brown dresser wasn't looking too good, now i just need to organize the various bits: lipsticks, nail polish and lotions mixed in the same basket as bicycle tubes and patch kits, not good.
lastly, this is the television i bought at "milly's thrift store." it is a tiny sparsely filled thriftstore around the corner from where i used to live. i walked in there and found a friend. "milly" is really "emilia." we hit it off with a shared name and love of e-spanish. the tv is newer looking than what i had hoped for (it's for the art installation i'm making) but i think i can antique it a bit, and change the black fabric on the speakers with a brown or more decorative one. what do you think? how else could i antiquate this television?

also, i don't have pictures- but i've been playing "gigs" every weekend. it is just fun to say.
