WIP-it

Here's some thaaangs.    
I didn't do any Halloween related posts, and I love Halloween. Love costumes. Halloween crafts are never overly cheesy to me, I adore them. I'm terrible at doing things related to times.... 
Y'all proly tired of seeing this star guy, but he's turning into something.
Here's some stuff I gots from Spirited Earth. And the ones on the raffia were freebies! Thank you grrl!
I'm trying to show the wonderful texture they have. I often have a bitchy superego saying not to do cute things or trendy things, but fuck it, these owls are awesomesauce.
This one you just wanna rub like a worry stone, it's so nubby. (I think I overly de-saturated it, it's a glorious amber.)
Here are the earrings I'm sporting today. They're from SacredCake and they're wonderful! I never had post earrings, they're so comfortable and don't swing around like danglies. Plus- look at them! They're cut steel antique buttons. Drool....
Today I did a get-out-the vote all around Pilsen, the Latino neighborhood. Cuz even the legal among us 'spics tend not to vote. And the entire time I was putting flyers under windshield wipers and sticking up posters and chatting w/some really cool Mexicans, all I could think was the line from cuteoverload "Vote vote vote like a baby stoat!" 
Plus I realized how crappy the windshield wipers on my (mom's) car are. Even the most modest of neighborhoods' cars had better wnshldwprs. Oh, and I was totally underdressed for the weather and now I'm like compensatorily feverish.
