Sorry sweet strangelings, I’ve been away for a long time 😦 Well, a lot has been happening here, first there were the holidays, and then my grandma fell ill and died. So, the next month or two I may still be rather preoccupied, as we have yet to hold her memorial service or settle her estate.
On a far brighter note, I have add several of the totes that I made to my Etsy shop… I made these bags back in October/November. I was heart broken that no one bought one at either of the holiday craft fairs I attended, but hopefully they’ll catch someone’s eye online.
Hi! Here are some macaroon charm necklaces I made using paper clay. Next time I think I’d use resin clay to try to give a little more weight to them (they are extreme light weight), and maybe try to make the macaroons a bit flatter…. I haven’t put these in my etsy shop yet, but I think I will… just cause I don’t know what I’d do with 6 necklaces like this, lol. What do you think?
Handmade paper clay macaroons with little gem decorations…
Since the semester is coming to an end this week, I’ve been a little busy with assignments for my business class. On top of that, I found out I have two holes/tears in my retina, so I had to get a laser procedure done this week. The doctor just “stitches” around the holes to make sure that the retina wont detach.
I’ve been back into decoden lately…. so I decided to do some tutorials on it. I’ll have them up maybe next week? This weekend I’m still doing some school work and also wanting to caste some resin… so I don’t know if I’ll get to it.
One more thing… I finally got my photo cube set up last night and took like 160 pictures of stuff I’ve made (hair accessories, necklaces, cell phone charms) to list on my etsy site. I’m a little conflicted about listing all the items though. Obviously 160 is a lot and so I wont list all, but I have put some up. The issue is that I would like my etsy store to be more “themed” as gothic lolita, kawaii, goth stuff… but I need to sell my other stuff (we’re talking 6 years + of evolution of style here, people). I am *hopefully* going to do a craft fair this summer, but I’m sure I’ll still have stuff left over that I need to get rid of.
Well I’ve posted some things to my store already. So I’ll be doing a few “promotion” posts next, so you can see some of the stuff!
I know its been a while, so soon I’ll post a more “update” type of post…. but for now I wanted to give a shameless plug for my Etsy store, which I FINALLY put stuff in.
As I’ve previously mentioned, I have an embroidery machine, which can make all sorts of nifty things. One of my favorites is Freestanding Lace. I’ve made a few different lace projects, and for the Christmas season I made some lace ornaments. I sold a decent number at craft fairs over the last few weeks, but now that I’m done with craft fairs, I’ve got the rest listed in my Etsy shop. The ornaments are $3 each or 4 for $10.
I took pictures of them today since we finally got a small tree for our living room. It was overcast outside, so the colors aren’t as warm as they really should be.
