HEY LOOK AN IMPORTANT POST PLEASE READ
Tumblr’s come through for me really hard in the past, so here’s to hoping you guys can do so again!

This is my Auntie Karen.  I call her my aunt though we have no technical blood relation — she’s been a friend of the family since before I was born.  Essentially, she’s filled the grandmother role in my life.
She is almost seventy years old and retired from teaching a few years ago.  As you might know, teaching doesn’t pay particularly well.  Right now she’s struggling hard to pay her rent and pay for food and her cats, working part-time jobs when she can and pretty much living day-to-day.
Auntie Karen can also bead like a motherfucker.
She has literally hundreds of beaded creations lying around her house, so I convinced her to open an Etsy shop to make some pocket change.  (I’m handling the listing of products since she isn’t great with computers.  All the products are purely made by her, though.)
The top image is one of her bracelets.  Every single one of those little shimmers you see is an individual bead.  There are hundreds strung together just so to create that pattern.
Here are a few other items you can find in her shop right now:

LOOK HOW GORGEOUS THESE EARRINGS ARE WTF

TINY DARLING ANGEL EARRINGS

LOOK SOME EARRINGS TO MATCH THE HEADER IMAGE

WOW PRETTY SPARKLY BLUE BEADS

THIS IS AN ADORABLE CAT PIN

HOLY SPIRAL STITCHING??
AND FOR PEOPLE WHO HAVE BEEN LOOKING FOR CUTE PLACES TO STORE THEIR TREASURES —

MOTHER

FUCKING

FAIRY

BOTTLES
—-
In the coming few days there’s going to be dozens more crafts listed on her Etsy shop.  This is a start.  Most items are priced between 10 and 25 US dollars (honestly underpriced for the amount of work that goes into them).  The exception is the header bracelet, which is 50.
Currently she can only ship to people in the US.
It would be great if you could signal boost this so that people can see it.  And if you’re in the US and have a little extra cash to spend, please take a few minutes to peruse her shop and see if you like anything!  I guarantee that all of her work is long-lasting and beautiful, and she could really use the money it would bring in.
Here is her shop.  Thanks for reading all this and have a lovely day!

She made her first sale today and has been dancing around all day beaming with delight and exclaiming, “I can buy cat food!  I can buy toilet paper now!”
She’s so excited &amp;&amp; it’s really cute.  Thanks so much to everybody who has reblogged &amp; continues to share this.

As promised, I will begin uploading pics from all the sessions that I hadn’t shared these past 2 months. I’ll make one photoset daily until I’m done with the backlog.

This is from a special Film-Noir-themed session a couple weeks ago… it was a lot of fun.

Model: Felipe

5-25 minute poses.

that feeling when you listen to a song with good heaphones for the first time and suddenly you notice 7 new instruments, a child singing harmonies in the background, and you’re just sitting there wide eyed and in love with the song all over again

Boycott Israel Cheat Sheet: Cosmetics, Health and Personal Care

artofpalestine:

When I began this blog, it was my intention to keep it strictly focused on the art of Palestine, and not to use it as a sounding block for pro-Palestinian politics. This is not to say the two things are unrelated — to the contrary, the art coming out of Palestine and from those living in exile is often explicitly political, and in all cases is shaped by the ongoing occupation of Palestine. My feeling was, and largely still remains, that this is a place for contemplation rather than debate. In light of the latest assault on Gaza, however, I have been doing a lot of talking with friends about BDS. What started as a conversation bemoaning the affiliation of MAC cosmetics with Zionist causes rapidly turned into a project; I spent the better part of a day compiling a list of cosmetics, health and personal care brands to avoid if you’re boycotting Israel, along with alternative products to use.

The process was abysmal. Surely, I have taken care never to underestimate US corporate ties with Israel, but even so, the explicit connections and the vast scope of products involved is frankly demoralizing.  That said, the boycott of Israeli goods is a vital step towards liberation for Palestine, and if you are interested in learning more, visit the BDS website and consult the list below.

A note about the scope and content: I focused on health and beauty items because they are the items I use most in my daily life, and because my friends — who seem disproportionately to be incredibly beautiful and well-groomed femmes — wanted to know about the products they are using. To do an exhaustive list is impossible at this juncture, though I hope to make lists focused on different sales arenas in the future. Topically, it bears repeating that Palestine is a feminist issue — we as women and/or feminist advocates should remember this as we make choices about the kind of products we buy for our bodies.

The list is after the cut, please share widely!
