New dresses and skirts in the shop!

I've been super busy lately - therefore not much posting here. I started Instagram though, and it's kind of like speedblogging for me ;) My account name is Omwoods, you can connect with me there if you'd like! These are dresses and skirts I posted up on Etsy recently - check them out here! And here's the rest of the shop of course, I added new vintage dresses too: BOHOpage.

Much love! xoxo

Recent Creativenessityvity :: Namarie, Farewell

Here's a dress I'm making! Almost done. I have a bunch more skirts I've done and am planning a photo shoot in the near future, will then list on Etsy. I'm mainly making these for others because whenever I wear layered skirts and dresses that I make up, people always compliment and ask where I bought them... So, now I can say, here, in my faery shop :) 

Poor, helpful Sponge Bob!

Another creative fun is this Neptunian person that appeared on this golden canvas (the painting is not finished yet though). Next to her is a page from an old Lord of the Rings book, with an elven Farewell song on it. Farewell is namarie in Elvish. On this day, in 2009, we said farewell to my dad and he's been on my mind a lot. Here he is, at one of his favorite nature spots, in Finland, in the town where I'm from.

Right now I'm staying happy and blasting Ramones - which is something he used to do, and I know my mom is doing the same thing tonight at home in Finland :)

Evil Eye bracelet give-away on BOHOpage

I wanted to let you know that I'm running a give-away on Facebook. Winner will be randomly chosen on Wednesday 6th. All you need to do is like this pic on FB, and leave a comment. YAY! Quite a pretty pink evil eye bracelet, to decorate your pretty wrist, and to ward off negative energy.

I had fun today, taking photos of some dresses that will go up in the shop soon. One of them was this fancy, sparkly ice skater girl's dress that made me bust out some serious gymnastics moves :)

Have a fun Monday!! Why not right!!? <3

Fifty-two Names for Snow

Haa it's been a while! What's happened in two weeks. Hmmm. I went to Los Angeles with Daniel to take part in a board gaming convention. I played a game called Agricola where you basically build a 17th century farm and get points for how many veggies you've planted or how many sheep you have in your pasture. FUUUN!

I stayed in a hotel for the first time in my life. I cried when I found out that they didn't have jacuzzi anymore - they still had a photo of it on their website. So I went back to my hotel room and filled the bath tub with hot water and floated there, watched vampire drama on my laptop, ate cookies and was happy again.

The other night I was working on a super secret personal website project. I ran into some obstacles and gave up and started writing a book about my life instead. I finished seven chapters in one sitting. Each chapter being about three paragraphs long.

Now, about the secret website project! Don't tell anyone yet but I'm trying to make a website where anyone can post photos of their bohemian/alternative/creative outfits, kind of like lookbook.nu, but specifically for gypsies and fairies and hippies and other interestingly dressing creatures. Since I've always wanted to take part in such a website but it does not exist, I'm now hoping for it to manifest. I just keep running into obstacles. That cause book writing. And delay. Will keep you updated on this one.

A while ago I went up to Mt. Charleston here in Nevada with photographer Gaby J who specializes in old polaroid and film cameras. It felt so cozy and good to lay on the snow - it felt like Finland for a moment. All these photos are from that shoot. I'm going to the snowy mountains again on Saturday, this time behind the camera - will show you what magic results from that! :)
