social media diet...

As I get ready to invest money into yarn, camera and a good blender, I take a serious look at my other investments as well and realize I need to unplug from fb for a while, at least a few weeks until I get my self professionally propped as I want to be. Dig me ? I, like many others, spend too much time on said social network, looking ,commenting, statusing and posting and it is more time consuming than I'd like to admit  AND it takes away from my valuable crafting time...I'll be spending more time here with my blog and working HARD to bring my vision of Goddess, family and business to light. In due time I'll return to my favorite social networking site with a few great accomplishments under my belt. This is my 2nd  FB diet...My 1st was successful and I anticipate much personal growth during this current absence as well.
Moving forward ~I am in the market for a new camera so bear with me , I know blogs with no pics are less than fun ! I will change that.

Thank you for your continued patience and love
 ps. the blender I'm investing in is for making up some green smoothies....I'm changing how I eat and am open to suggestions for green smoothies !

Be ever beautiful

My reality getting closer to my dreams....

Peace family.
Many things have happened , many things have changed . I have evolved and I am liking where I am at the moment. I feel free from most stresses and happy to be with family and home full time. I am no longer seeking to earn a place in the make-up industry. I think that was just me transitioning into an artist and feeling comfortable with calling myself that...I do love the art of pretty face making , but I am not as passionate as I thought i was .
I really don't like all the ingredients in most cosmetics and that has always been an issue for me , especially as I don't eat animals I don't want to wear animal grease on my face. I do still apply my liner and lipgloss but I am not one of those ladies who can't go get gas without
my " face " on....that's crazy.

What I am doing is creating my brand . Learning the ins and outs of Etsy and online retail and KMAO , knitting my ass off...Real simple. Once i put my heart and soul into my craft the ideas pour and pour and I am wondering if God could grant me six more arms...but then i'd be a spider , huh ...

Still I'm content and high from getting a few bow orders already. I got my first paypal payment and I'm like
" Dat's wats up ! " So Encouraged and inspired I move these fingers and create things....

Be blessed and be inspired !

one love

Have a blessed New Year ! 20!2 !!!

Hi All !
Happy 2012 to you and yours ! I pray your year is off to a great start ! I'm always happy to get a clean slate and look forward to realigning my self with my ambitions and goals every New Year. 2012 is going to be awesome and I look forward to my personal and artistic growth. Cheers to all who has survived 2011 ! Let's us move on to bigger and better now !
I am changing my blog around again. I am changing a lot around in my life so naturally the blog changes too.
I have moved and am still hard at work on my personal , family and career goals. A lot of things that were important only a year ago aren't so important now. I have started crafting more and doing make-up less. Now please don't get me wrong, I still love the art of make-up and my kit is still chock full of goodies but I've slowly transitioned. I am in a different place and my passions have shifted and some re-emerged. I'm just flowing with it. I am considering doing Bridal Make-up as a side gig, but we'll see what happens.
She Does Make is my story of creating something out of nothing and re birthing myself ...

I will still do the occasional blog inner-view but not just on make-up artists. I have grown fond of a few creative folks online and will certainly showcase them on my blog as well. Stay tuned. I am working on adding a place on this blog where you can see items I have available for trade/ barter. I have become quite interested in trading and bartering with other crafty, creative folks so this is where I will show case what I have to barter. .
In the spring I look forward to the birth of my Etsy shop. I'm preparing for that and learning the ins and outs of Etsy while researching other markets to sell my line of  knit and hand crafted goodies. I'll keep you posted.

My blog goal is to actually blog !!! So plan to see more of me in 2012 !
Have a great week end !
Happy twenty-twelve !

let's get it !
