Do you remember when you where a little kid and the joy a blank paper could bring, the thoughts of filling that paper with lots of color and thinking about what to draw was a magical feeling, and do you remember when you got (or the times you didn't but borrowed it anyway) to take a look in your mothers make up purse, ohhh the glitter the eye shadows,the pencils the rouge the lipsticks!!!... And how gorgeous you looked after putting everything on your face. Or at least you thought so your self ;)
This sort of magical moments you don't get to experience as much as a grown up, but i love to See that magic in my five year old girls eyes when she gets to play with my make up or when she´s sitting there filling the paper with water colors.. Ahh the joy!
I do feel glimpses of that magic through scrap booking sometimes, especially when I'm shopping new glimmer mist colors i feal like a little kid again, and i do feal the joy of filling a paper with happy scrappy stuff =)
And i do LOVE to shop eye shadows, before i found scrap booking i spent a lot more money on make up and instead of filling papers with colors i tried different make up techniques.
I don't play around with make up as much as i used to, but then i found this girls blog who creates the most amazing looks with eye shadows, I'm stunned by her color matches and the only way i would get my eye to look that colorful is to spray them with glimmer mist, but somehow i don't think that that's the right way to go ;) She has great tutorials all in Swedish but with great pics!! Right now she has a blog candy where you could win a bag from Make up store ( LOVE their stuff!!!) which i of course i would love to do =)
But now i am curios what gives you that magical feeling, please feel free to share!
Now im going watch Greys anatomy =)
