Since the site opened last week it's been hectic as ever. 2 days after I launched the site, my 4 year old laptop died. Just flat out died. So I went out and bought a new one (I was going to within a few months anyway) and I couldn't be happier with it. Though I lost ALL of my bookmarks which are more precious to me than anything else on my old computer. I was fortunate enough to have just backed up all my info, pics, and so on, so I didn't lose anything like that. Just bookmarks for blogs, tutorials, websites and everything that is good in this world. Now I am starting over and desperately trying find them all again. I have managed to salvage a few blogs and tutorials thanks to Tumblr. If you don't follow me on there check out my blog.
A 2 inch spike ring. I used a plain adjustable ring and (2) 2 inch metal spikes unintentionally creating the affect of piercing my finger with a giant spike. Ugh... I need a manicure.
Aside from making clothes for my orders I have been working on fun little projects for myself. I started with a mustard yellow fleece ear warmer made with navy blue (suppose to be flowers but look more like) stars and a button in the back. All materials available at Joann's. A 1/4 of a yard will make you 2 bands worth plus whatever you want for the decorative piece.
-Please excuse my exhausted looking face/hair/look. The holidays have been hectic.
A reusable University of Oregon coffee cup sleeve just in time for the civil war game. GO DUCKS!
And tonight I finished my sweat hear cut white vinyl bandeau top. It was so incredibly easy to make so I plan on making more of them and in a variety of colors as well. I think if I turn them into tube tops they will go perfectly with an empire waist skirt. Plus with it being vinyl, it doesn't budge or move much so no straps = no problem.
On top of those projects I have been trying to get more organized with my craft supplies. As of 3 days ago they were in little plastic bags in a basket. But I found an old case I used to hold and organize plastic rhinestones. So now all of my hair clips, earrings, beads, pendants, pearls, glue sticks, ect... have a home and place to stay.
