It has been quite a while since I have posted. Basically I keep my facebook page for my handcrafted items more up to date, but even them it's not full blown posts. It's hard to think of what to talk about in relation to my craft, because it's not so much that I don't do things related but to think of new things to talk about about it is hard. There is only so many things I feel I can say, without getting too personal. I have a personal blog on livejournal for my personal thoughts.

Anyway. I am no longer doing "dog bows" but now I am doing soaps and jewelry. I know it's a huge chance of pace! But really, who the hell wants a dog bow? There are lots of people, and there are more than enough places to get them in relation to those who actually use them (I don't use them every day myself, I use plastic barretts).

Anyway, so now my etsy has liquid soap (body wash), and graphics still. Coming VERY SOON are jewelry pieces, and hard (bar) soap when the shipment of materials comes in. I am very excited about this!

Please check and 'like' my facebook, I will post here too perhaps more often than I do.

Sooo.. who thinks my Etsy products should be sold in a real store?! Anyone??

Wednesday, November 3, 2010


Okay, so I started my glue book this evening (even though I feel like death). Jacob had bought me a sketch book from clearance at Barnes & Noble. It's one that is suppose to be open from the top and is like 8.5 x 11 in shape, but since I don't want to open it that way and I wanted a book that was wider rather than long (like standard paper orientation) this was the best and it was only $6.

Sooo the cover was sideways and I wasn't particular for it anyway, so I decided to grab some magazines from the thrift store that contain some things that would represent who I am pretty well (and I also had to print some things, mostly the skulls in picture are what was printed) and collage on the cover.

I had done this for another journal I got on clearance years ago and used it as a computer notes journal or whatever. It came out pretty cute and I still have it and love how it came out.

Unfortunately I didn't have the same kinds of magazines available (and I obviously was not going to spend $3+ on one magazine not to mention I'd have needed more than one) but I like how this one came out too!

Does anyone else do anything like gluebooking? Does anyone else even know what it is besides my aunt? lol

Hey all, not sure who out there really reads this. Perhaps give me a quick hello so I can know that I'm actually talking to someone? Anyone? lol

Anyway, Jacob is gone now. I'm pretty devastated but it's something so familiar now that I am doing an ok job, for now, at just ignoring it. I've been keeping busy playing my game and assessing in my head what projects I have that I can do now, since Jacob was kind enough to spend money on my hobbies. I got a crapload of ribbons since he's been here, and a lot of them are holiday themed, Christmas in particular, and I will hopefully be getting those ready and I'll have more time to push any sales. I haven't made any sales at all on Etsy yet other than the banners and business cards. But yeah.

Also my aunt taught me about gluebooks. Has anyone ever attempted one of these? Jacob and I found a spiraled sketch pad in the bargain area at B&N for $6. I don't really like the cover, but we got some magazines from a thrift store for .25 cents each and I am going to collage over the cover. I did this before for a journal that I really didn't like the cover of and used for computer notes and it came in real handy and I love how it turned out. I'm hoping this will be good, also.

I'm pretty excited for that, and Halloween too. There is a huge party at my complex going on and I did a lot for it, well moreso Jacob and I since he bought everything. I bought my mom a new sewing machine when I had money, not sure if I mentioned this or not, and she helped me make a costume. I figure spending a little on a machine would be good since I rarely can afford new clothes, she can just help me repair the ones I have when they get holes and stuff. Anyway, Jacob helped to purchase the materials for the costume. He also bought the stuff that I put into the treat bags I'll be giving out at the party. There's tons of stuf: glow stick bracelets, halloween activity pads (tiny tiny!), skeleton keychain, skeleton book marks, candy of various types including chocolate, little critter things that are just for fun, tongue tattoos.. I can't remember if there's anything else. It'll be fun. Also, there will be many a bloody mary involved at the party for me!

Oh yeah, and we found at Target these sprinkles that are like pretty big, not sure why they are called sprinkles, and they are bones that has like dried blood splatters on them. They look awesome! So we got some red velvet cake mix to make cupcakes out of. We did this before while he was here and they tasted soo good. We have halloween sprinkles to put on them plus the bones :)

Anyway, also got one of those teeny pots from Target that you can plant in and it comes with the seeds, I got some parsley. I'm just going to see if I can maintain it very well or not. I'd like some fresh herbs.

Not sure if there is anything else. I did get some of those hard foil cooking pans to cut up and make some cutters for my clay with. Oh and speaking of that, I got some Sculpey II to try and work with also. And some empty bottles, perhaps one day I will attempt to make some lotion or something.

Pictures later.

Okay, well... Jacob ended up staying longer than we planned, which is good. But this thursday he will be leaving :( I got a Droid X phone about a month ago and downloaded this blogger app. It was the best rated one so hopefully this works out. I haven't really done anything craft-wise since Jacob has been here, except that I made Lolli a halloween costume. Well, part of it. Jacob bought her the cutest little pumpkin dress and I wanted to make her a pumpkin hat. It was made to look like the top where the stem is like when you're carving a pumpkin and u open the top... Yeah. It was cute and I will post a picture if I can figure out how to with this app, if it's even possible.

My mom has been helping me sew a full halloween costume for myself since i bought her a sewing machine, whic i bought for her to be able to create and enjoy as much as i do (and to fix all my ragged clothes).

Guess that's it for now. I hope to get back to creating once Jacobs gone, though I don't want him to leave...
