New Artist Discovery :) Lynn Reno of Desert Rubble

I stumbled upon this wonderful blog called Desert Rubble and it took my breath away.  Lynn Reno has a rustic, earthy approach to her art with a touch of Steampunk thrown in for good measure.  The piece in particular that caught my eye is this twisted, studded heart.

And I adore dragonflies, so these Steampunk beauties are really up my alley 🙂

And I wish I could make things that guys would wear like Lynn can. This shield pendant is fabulous!

You can see more of Lynn’s work in her Etsy shop or her Facebook page

She also has a Flickr gallery

Fairies and Flowers and Bugs … Oh My

What can I say about Kim Detmers. First I’d have to mention that she has quite an imagination. Check out her Fairy Portals. They are adorable !

I would also have to say that she has a nice eye for design. This pair of earrings is beautiful.

And just take a gander at this necklace Kim posted on her blog. I so want it 🙂

I am terrified of snakes, but I’d actually allow this one in my house.

Oh oh !! You have to see this dragonfly. It’s gorgeous.

Check out her Etsy Shop and Blog fro more.

Many designs to choose from !


For the first 2 weeks prices the Nail Art Canes will be available in my web shop for the low introductory price of $1.29 per cane. After wards, the prices will be $1.99 each. There are many beautiful flower canes, a few fun fruit designs, and several cute butterflies to choose from. Plus a great American Flag for the upcoming 4th of July. I have red and blue flower canes with white backgrounds that accent the flag beautifully.

The canes are very simple to use. Easy to follow instructions will be included with your order. All you need is a single edge razor blade or scraper blade, a safe cutting surface and a cup of hot water to warm the canes. A single cane can produce 60+ slices if you slice them very thin.

You can use the Nail Art Cane Slices several ways:
1. Glue them on to store bought acrylic nails with nail glue and clear coat them with an acrylic clear coat polish. (I recommend Sally Hansen No Chip Acrylic Top Coat) Then adhere the acrylic nails to your natural nails.
2. Embed the cane slices into the uncured acrylic as you have a nail tech do your nails. Make sure they are covered/sealed with the acrylic.
3. Pre-coated your nails with a layer of acrylic nail polish. Glue the cane slices onto your natural nails (with nail glue). Then seal them with an acrylic clear coat. (Again I recommend Sally Hansen No Chip Acrylic Top Coat)

I will also offer a variety of pre-sliced cane samplers, 20 slices for $1.99 if you prefer to not slice them yourself.

Here are just a few of the canes you will see in my shop.
