Make-up Brush Rolls

As you may know I own Avental Kitchenware.....I make unique aprons and other items for the kitchen. One of my other loves is make-up.....so..... I thought I would try making myself something make-up related. I sat down and drew up a design and starting to create my vary own brush roll.

I was really happy with the way it turned out. I will be selling my brush rolls on my etsy page.


I will have many prints to choose from......I have just started a zebra and teal brush roll.....it's really cute :)

I would love to hear your thoughts on these.....are these something you guys are interested in and if so, which colours/prints?

I will keep everyone posted on when I have them up on etsy!

Vicious Bettys Magazine Feature / Kat Von D

Hey everyone....hope you are all having a great weekend! I have been busy with work and sewing. This weekend the only thing I purchased was a Lush gift card for my friends Birthday...I did not get myself anything...can you believe it!!! oh but I did buy a pair of the tall grey Emus....I know people may think they are ugly, but I live in Canada (cold) and they are the perfect pair of boots for comfort and warmth....I also think they look cute with leggings ;)
I was organizing my sewing room and found the copy of the Vicious Bettys April magazine that I (Avental) was featured in !! yay....super excited about it and wanted to share it with you.

Now..... onto make-up! I have been looking online at the Kat Von D for Sephora, and can't stop thinking about it.
I really want to get my hands on the Beethoven palette oh and the Ludwig too.

I would love to know if anyone has tried any of the Kat Von D make-up and what you think about it. Likes , Dislikes I want to hear it all ;)

I also made it out to this years Festival of Fear in Toronto, Ontario....wow did I have fun. I met so many interesting people and had returning customers which was awesome. Oh and Jamie (Jammerdesignz) so many people wanted to know where they could get their own hair accessorie like mine!!!) Above is a picture of me with my Aunt Jo she owns Vampire Wear, she was also selling her goods. ( the pic is on the top of the page cause I have no clue on how to move the pics around hahahh)
