A few years ago I was searching YouTube for… something. I don’t even remember what it was now. In my video wanderings, I came across this young woman with a mass of blonde hair piled on top of her head, and something intrigued me enough to click *play* and watch her video. Within a few minutes I was laughing my hiney off, and suddenly realized she totally reminded me of my little sister. They don’t actually look like one another, but there are mannerisms and facial expressions and just an all-around attitude that made me think of Lexi.

The three open edges are all shiny gold, too.
When you open it, the wonderful array of colors are couched in more shiny gold. The large mirror on the lid has this message printed across the very top:

Something we all do well to remember.
As for the colors – I Continue reading “Grav3yardgirl’s Swamp Queen Palette!!!”
