I love make-up and am so glad that I have one child who will endure spirit gum, crepe hair and layers of thick make-up to achieve the desired look. Unfortunately, that child has chosen an elaborate costume this year that will require lots of fabricating but little make-up. But that doesn’t mean I can’t sift through tons of photos and dream.

I found lots of pretty make-up and lots of gruesome stuff. As I looked, I discovered that there was a third category: Freak Your Shit. Yep. You read right. I’m sure that description means something different for everybody, but for me it’s something that made me pause and say “Shit! That’s cool.”

Some are simple and some are complicated. Some I think I could replicate, and others I think would take a few tries for me to get close. Anywho, take a look at some of the designs…

This cream claims to have “mango seed that fills moisture inside skin and heart seed that offers resilience create volume skin. While creating moisture coating veil, protects skin against dryness to remain moisturizing feeling for hours. GMO free.” Grammar’s not great…

There Is One New Book On Amazon Every Five Minutes

In an interesting post, writer Claude Nougat estimated the total number of books on Amazon – about 3.4 million at last count (a number that could include apps as well) and then figured out how many books were added in a day. Nougat noticed that the number rose by 12 books in an hour, which suggests that one new book is added every five minutes. And, most likely, it’s probably an indie book.

Let’s let that sink in.

What does that mean for the indie publisher? If you’re perpetually optimistic, very little. If you’re even a little bit pessimistic, however, you might want to rethink your career. As Nougat writes:

Now if life is tough for the more successful self-published authors, try and imagine what it’s like for the rest of us?

The reason why? Basically the tsunami of books that buries every single newcomer!

This also means that this…

More needlepoint!

I’m doing my needlepoint again. I like to craft. IMG_0191.JPG
It’s a kit my mom and I got at Michael’s in a sale. The kits are expensive! And needlepoint is very hard to find. I find it great when I’m stressed out to just focus on a task.

Craft on!
