Boo You Lamp

      No Comments on Boo You Lamp

In some ways, our little jaunt to get lightbox objects was successful. Z picked out a nice sheet of posterboard, and one of the women who worked at Hobbycrack was able to locate the particular craft knife he wanted to buy (the retractable kind; they were hiding somewhere). We were less successful when we checked out the home store next… Read more »

This face, it is a tired, slightly frazzled face. This is the face of someone who is realising more and more with each passing day that part of having a small crafting business is spending forever shopping around for supplies. And that is, of course, balanced against me not wanting to buy more because I don’t want to spend ALL… Read more »

Uh, Stuff

So like, all I wanted today was a huge pile of work to keep me distracted… so of course, there wasn’t. As you might’ve guessed based on last night’s post, my grandfather passed last night. I’m not dwelling on it or anything, but I -am- sad, and I -did- want something to keep my brain busy. The one upshot of… Read more »

The Worst Part of Knitting…

      No Comments on The Worst Part of Knitting…

… is picking up stitches. I pulled my knitting out of my bag for the first time since I was out Wednesday, and finished the last few rows on the second sleeve. Which means now I am doing math and picking up stitches, which is… tedious. To say the least. Still, at least it’s nearing completion! I don’t think that… Read more »

Possibilities

I had a box of beads come in today, which was yay. I’ve got some goodies up in my shop now, with the lower price of £3.50 for a set of ten. I’m hoping that will entice people to come in and spend money. We’ll see. We also stopped at Hobbycrack earlier today, but alas? There were no beads crooning… Read more »

I Earned This Coffee

Today, I celebrate my first sale, woo! Granted, it was a custom request that predated me setting up the store, but it also is kind of the thing that nudged me into doing it. Tippy wanted to pay me what my efforts were worth, and I guess I needed that bit of validation to take a big step and *try*… Read more »

Made With Love

I’ve had a hankering this past week to wear my various hand knits. I made myself so many goodies something like two years ago, and then I’ve barely touched them. So I’m making a point to do it now. I’m currently wearing my Nesoi tee, which is lovely and light, and just the right level of extra warmth I need… Read more »

Temptation

There is a single bead that has been sitting on my desk most of this week. So of course, that bead keeps singing siren songs of making more stitch markers. You know what? I do want to make more. But I have set myself the goal of trying to get halfway through this sleeve this weekend, so I’m trying to… Read more »

Feeling Cute

      No Comments on Feeling Cute

I don’t know what it it is about today, but I’ve been feeling super cute. I couldn’t even tell you why in particular. I mean, I default think that I am adorable and all of that. I like me, I like my failing meatbag in a frustrated sort of way. Maybe my body was just squirtin’ an extra dose of… Read more »

More Pretty Things

Today has been an amusing day. I’d commented to E last night that out of the ‘advice’ giving game these days. So of course, I end up having several mutually cathartic conversations with friends over the course of the day, ha ha. Which is great! I love catching up with friends, and in one case, I honestly cannot remember how… Read more »
