Sanctuary Jewelry & Tanimoto Dharma Designs updates!

I got my order from Juli of Sanctuary Jewelry a few days ago!
I fell in LOVE with so many of her gorgeous pieces, it was so hard to choose the one I wanted! I chose the angel wing necklace, it is sooo cute :3

These are some of my other favorite pieces:

What I got:

Of course I devoured the candy (;
Fake nails! Which I am currently in the process of deco-ing ♥
And the necklace!

Obvious why I love it, right? It's adorable!

Why does blogger seriously eff the quality of some photos? -_-;
Anyways. I love my new necklace ♥

I would do a FOTD but I have no idea wtf I slapped on my face the day I took this photo lol. The lashes/contacts are courtesy of (: If you have not tried it out before, definitely do! It's so fun to play with~

Don't forget to visit the very talented Juli! ♥
Also, I wanted to announce that we have new creations at our website,
Tanimoto Dharma Designs!
(Click here to also visit the store)

We have three new Dharma Cats (:

Mono no aware, "a sensitivity to things," is a Japanese aesthetic used to describe the awareness of the transience of all things, and the bittersweet sadness at their passing. The Sakura or Cherry Blosson tree epitomizes this concept of beauty. The delicate flowers bloom and then fall within a single week, symbolizing the fleeting nature of life.

The first two cats with the sakura trees are for the Cherry Blossom Festival in Waimea this Saturday! We're going to be participating in the craft fair, I hope we do good!

We also have more new cats & muffins, which I will be updating with soon (:

    They don't deliver boxes to your house anymore? Hmm weird. Although I have heard of people stealing other people's boxes and the post office getting blamed for it. Maybe that's why?
