recent creativity -- selfportraits and jewelry


since Hannah's going to BE HERE in 13 hours (!!!) I'm going to post a bunch of recent stuff to clear the way for new stuff. I'm quite proud of some of these self-portraits.

I think I like "joy of belonging" best. You've got gorgeously expressive eyes and a wonderfully pouty mouth. :)

I keep meaning to take pics of me wearing the Kaylene necklace and earrings, and keep forgetting to - thanks for the reminder!

Your eyebrows look a bit grown together in the set of most recent self-portraits.

I'm not sure how you feel about it, but I think it's quite lovely and distinctive!
belenen ══╣beautiful╠══
I'm pretty neutral on it -- I kinda like the look of it grown out, but I think my face is more expressive when my eyebrows are shaped -- you can see them move more clearly. It may just be me that thinks that though ;-)

In some culture/times, thick brows and female facial hair were considered so attractive women would paint them on. Funny how people think current fashions are universal beauty standards!

Thanks so much for the compliment! :D
