Zombie Preferences??

Here I go again.... realizing that I have been remiss in my blogging duties.  Last time I wrote of my new affinity for Zombies.... well, I am happy to say that it is still intact and strong as ever!  I have been carefully thinking about my zombie jewelry idea, yet I cannot settle on any particular style/concept.  I have pictures of blood, skulls, rotting flesh and blank stares running amok in my mind, but I am having trouble putting it all together. 

On Sunday morning, I decided to watch THE original zombie movie: Night of the Living Dead.  It was as good as I remembered it... all scary black and white with oodles of undead wandering around! Apart from the thrill of being frightened half to death, however, I am sad to say that it did not provide me the inspiration that I was hoping for.  

I am currently reading Pride and Prejudice and Zombies by Jane Austen and Seth Grahame-Smith. It is a lovely bit of fiction that takes the classic Jane Austen novel and spices it up with Zombies, of course! It is providing plenty of entertainment value for me, but alas, no zombie jewelry inspiration to be found here, either.  What's a Kittie to do?

My last hope is that I will find inspiration from you, my reader.... I have called on you before to assist me and I am now doing it again!  Please, dear reader/follower, what would you like to see incorporated into Zombie jewelry?  Do you like skulls?  Are dark colors attractive to you? Would you prefer bones or bone shapes?  Those are just a few examples.... but I need more, much more! Come on, I know you want to contribute and be heard, so please, give me those preferences and I promise, I will take them and create Zombie jewelry out of them. I am counting on you all, my lovelies!

Yours truly,
Kittie :-)

Zombie Fixation

Lately I have been fascinated with the Zombie phenomenon.  Zombies are cool to some folks and terrifying to others... why is this? Who knows and frankly, who really cares?  I am in the cool club.  Zombies make me laugh, sometimes scare me and generally make me feel better about myself.  I mean really, if a Zombie can look dead (actually BE dead) and be cool... then I won't have any problems!

Since I have been into the Zombie thing, it stands to reason that I should be thinking about accessorized Zombies, right? If I am going to be hanging out with a Zombie, they had better be wearing some jewelry!  What kind of jewelry, you might say?  Good question!  I have been thinking long and hard on this and come to the conclusion that Zombies would just LOVE dark and destructive type jewelry.  After all, it fits with their lifestyle of flesh eating and all.

In my mind, I have created the ultimate Zombie jewelry line.  Skulls are prevalent and lots of hematite, because it is heavy, dark and shiny.  Zombies are into simplicity, of course, due to the fact that they are really dead. Zombie jewelry must reflect this by being simple with clean lines.

I am excited about my Zombie jewelry ideas and can't wait to share them with you all!  Stay tuned over the next few weeks as I unveil my Zombie Collection.  I am sure you will be pleased.

Ta ta for now,
Kittie ;-)

Kittie Returns

The short break I meant to take turned into a long break.... but it is over now.  I have had some time to reflect on things and I believe that blogging should be an integral part of my existence.  Aren't you glad I came to that conclusion?

It is nearly mid-April.... tax time for many of us.  Hopefully, you will get a return, or at least break even and not have to pay.  I have not been so lucky, but there is always next year, right?  So, if you are getting a return, how do you plan to spend it?  I have a suggestion:  spend it on pretty things!  Jewelry, of course, or beads or even some flowers to pretty up your place.  Spring is naturally a lovely time of year when the plants that have been dormant during the winter refresh themselves.  You are a living creature too!  Why not refresh yourself with some new "blooms" such as earrings, bracelets and necklaces?

Jewelry can provide us with a sense of being complete and whole.  That extra special feeling can come when you accessorize with just the right pair of earrings.  It brings your look together and you just know that you are looking wonderful!  I propose that we all strive to feel wonderful by adding a piece of jewelry to our adornment each day.  You don't have to deck yourself out like a Christmas tree or anything.... just a pair of earrings or a necklace will do.  Just enough to show that you feel confident in yourself and your sense of style.

Now, I shall pose a question to you.... like I always do.  What is your preferred bit of jewelry to make you feel complete?  I can't wait to hear your responses, because that is the best part of this blog!

Until next time (I promise it won't be 2 months!),
Kittie :-D
