"Mirror Mirror on the wall, who is the scariest of them all"

Disney has just announced one of there up and coming new collections,
The Disney Villains!!
The range will have exclusive merchandise dolls, note books, nail polishes,
Home wares and other exciting pieces.....
Would you buy any of this collection?

To be honest with you all these chicks scare the crap out of me,
but I've always found Maleficent any interesting character.
I've always thought that she seems the most saddest out of all the characters,
but yet so beautiful looking in a striking villain way.

When Disney announced that Angelina Jolie was cast as Maleficent
I wasn't surprised at all, I have said many times that she reminds me so much of her.
I think Disney have done an amazing job casting her and she will be well Magnificent!

Take a look at the collection,
I think with the upcoming release of Maleficent
and the popularity that the Mac makeup Disney Villain range received.
This will be another success for the Disney Company.

The ART of Yarn bombing.....

How wonderful is this picture!!
This is an awesome example of Yarn bombing or as others may call it Knit Graffiti,.
Whoa! this just takes Street art to a whole other level!

Thanks to Sarah Knepper Rudder's (@sknep) Amazing!! Knitted R2D2 piece
she has really brought a lot of focus to this different form of street art.
Yarn bombing is a form of creative street art where knitters, crotchets etc
decorate a public space.
Originally yarn bombing, knit graffiti started as a way to reclaim,
bring life and color back to grey, sterile public areas.

How amazingly fun, creative and inspiring is this form of art,
to me I'd just straight up call this Happy Art!
Because It makes people smile and brightens up the world what could be better,
seriously imagine walking down the street and seeing crocheted cover bikes, trees wrapped
in rainbow scarfs or R2D2 hanging out on the side of the road.
Your day just got even more magical!!

Crafts, knitting, crochet, crafting parties and craft groups
are becoming so mainstream popular again,
Especially with sites like Etsy.....
I think will be seeing a lot more types of crafting creating styles from all ages, genders
backgrounds and interests

Oh Hi!!

I hope everyone had a Rad weekend!!
We had an Adventure at the " adventure time" special screening at the movies,
It was such a fun event, everyone was even given Finn hats and I was
delighted to see that everyone was wearing them.
Sooooo Cuteeeee!

If you haven't seen Adventure time it's this crazy fun cartoon that seems
to be more popular with adults than any other age.
I just love the cuteness of them all and the best friend relationship between
Human and dog....

Our weekend would not of been the same without cartoons, talking plushies, Star wars Lego,
puzzles, pirates, Johnny Depp movies, cuddles and winter strolls with our
pupcakes and kitty xx

What Time Is It??

Adventure Time!!
I love Adventure Time it's the best thing to happen to cartoons since
Ren and Stimpy and Sponge Bob Squarepants.

It's been around for a while coming into its fourth season,
finding itself now to be one of the most popular cartoons on T.V (Cartoon network.)

It's also very popular with adults and teens having almost a cult like following,
with a strong merchandise line, loads of hand made gifts on etsy,
cute hats and cosplay costumes.
Finn the human, Jake the dog, and there friends are popping up everywhere.

It's such a funny bright, wacky, out there cute cartoon about a boy and his dog
and all the adventures they have and share with there friends in the land of Ooh....
With a Lady Rainicorn and a pink hair bubble gum princess,
guitar playing vampires, ice king and queens, Fionna and her cat Cake
and an old skool gaming system as your roommate.....

It's bound to just get cuter, more crazy and yes create more
Adventure Times!!

Street Art....

I love art, street art, pop art, comic book art,
all art!!
Im such a visual person, I love color!!
Since I was little to now as an adult I prefer picture books over words,
I buy cards to keep because I love the art.
I prefer to do my shopping at a Japanese food market
because the packaging is so artistic.
I could go on and on for days, but I really don't think some people get how much art
Influences there way of life.
Here's some images of my fav Star wars street/ inspired art.
Banksy being one of the most popular and well known street artist uses a lot of
Star wars characters, I wonder if he's like the ultimate Star wars fan boy?
