Good News!

Hey everyone!

I know it has been a while, but I'm actively trying to make an attempt to get back into blogging. I've been spending some time working on a pen pal documentary blog called The Not Quite Dying Art (follow me here). I wanted to get back into the snail mail community so I've been working hard to get involved with sites that incorporate swapping letters and packages with crafting and other hobbies. =)

But that's not the only good news! I was asked to table at a gaming convention! I will be selling my goods at the upcoming September convention, Queen City Conquest!

If you've been watching my Etsy mini along the left sidebar, you'll notice my inventory has changed to include some geekery! Dice pendants, bottle cap necklaces, and soon I'll be adding complimentary pin-back buttons to match the bottle cap necklaces.

However, to add even more excitement, I now have a facebook page, found here!

I am also working on new Valentine's Day gifts. I know, I know, it's only August. What the heck am I doing planning this far in advance for a holiday not due until next year?

I learned how to craft some things and they make for a much less expensive gift made from the same cute materials! So instead of charging something like $12 to $15 for a booklet that just looks pretty, I can lower the price by almost $10 for something small but functional (and still adorable)!

Shameless Self-Promotion Part Two

So I've been busy lately coming up with new things to sell in my Etsy shop. I've been considering going back into the craft show circuit because I had so much fun the last few times I went. Click on the pictures to take you to the listing on Etsy. Here are the latest things I've created.

This is a journal I just finished making about two hours ago. It's love themed and included tons of unique and fun pages inside. I plan to make more of these to sell.

Showing Some Love

I'm in another one of those moods today and I've decided to post another list of things that make me happy. You might see some overlap with the last list but only because some things just really make me incredibly happy. =) So here goes!

Pretty envelopes!

New House, New Room: Before

Hello there! This quick post is just a few photos of my new room. I haven't come close to finishing the set-up or organizing my closet, so this is just to show you guys what my new place looks like. I will do a room tour next weekend if I can, if not the week following it. It's fairly small and I can't paint it, so I'll have to deal with the yellow walls not matching anything in my room. And I present to you the BEFORE version of my new room, to be followed soon by an AFTER room and closet tour! =)

JC Penney, ModCloth, TJ Maxx & Target Haul

Hello everyone! I just returned from some afternoon shopping with my dad. I initially went out to buy hangers because I needed them and ended up purchasing some clothes as well. The ModCloth purchase was for Christmas and I didn't want to post just one thing. The TJ Maxx purchase is from a few weeks ago but I had to have the dress altered so it fit me before I took pictures of it. It was 8 or so inches too large and I loved the dress too much to pass it up. So since we're on the topic of TJ Maxx, let's start with it. Here is the beautiful dress I bought:

Here is a close-up of the pattern:

Warning: My Room is a MESS

So I can't say that I'm an entirely neat and organized person. As much as I try to be, buying organizational items and neatening things up via uniformity, it seems I simply cannot be perfectly neat. Now, what I'm about to show you is my room the messiest it has ever been. I have clothes on hangers, jeans folded in a pile, bookshelves and bagged bedding thrown haphazardly around, hampers of clean pajamas on the ledge of my bed frame, and speaking of beds....mine isn't made. This is all because I've been  searching through all my belongings to find the most important items to take with me when I move out next month. I have a good portion packed, but that left behind the mess that is as follows:

In Your Purse: Must Haves!

Hey everyone! So today I decided I would talk about things I think are essential to have in your purse. Let's face it, we all have a ton of crap in our purses we don't need (mine happens to be full of pointless Hello Kitty stuff I really like). So here is a short list of some things I believe everyone should carry in their purse.

  1. Wallet. All the important stuff is inside: IDs, debit/credit cards, cash, checks, gift cards, business cards, and frequent buyer cards. 
  2. Cell phone. In case of an emergency, your wallet may not always be enough. Props to Verizon for having the best coverage.
  3. Nail file. This may not seem essential to some of you but if you're like me, your nails are long and they sometimes break when they get used too much. See "works at a computer all the time".
  4. A book. Because you never know when you'll need to chuck it at somebody pass the time. Alternatively, if you aren't the reading type but you are the listening type, an iPod or Zune with audio books. Or...just plain music.
  5. Keys. To your car, your house, to Candy Mountain. Don't want to get locked out of there...
  6. A pen and scrap piece of paper. For car accidents, evil scheming, or giving your number to cute guys or girls.
And that covers it. Not too shabby, eh? For some people this may not cover it, but planners and other items aren't always essential to everyone. Oh, and don't forget a bi-fold compact mirror for when you need to go into super secret spy mode and peek around corners.

Burlington Coat Factory Haul

Okay, so here is the late update of the Burlington Coat Factory purchases I made the other day. Let us begin with the shoes I bought. They are black suede and are wedges, which I adore. I'll have to buy some suede waterproofing spray so I can wear them this winter. They're simply adorable and were only $22.99!

What's In Store?

So I wanted to write a post about things I've been mulling over the last few weeks, ideas about what I'd like to post here for everyone to see. I keep seeing these room tours on YouTube and I feel like I should at the very least do a dorm tour, and then maybe later do a tour of my room at home. I also have a Burlington haul for you guys, which I'll post as soon as I find my camera. It isn't a particularly large haul, but man did I find some good stuff! I was thinking I might possibly start doing an outfit of the day post, once a week, or do a weekly post of a compilation of my favorite outfits of the week, and maybe include my least favorite outfit and ask for your input as to how I can change it for the better.

In other news, NaNoWriMo is going well, and this weekend I'm supposed to go to the mall with my friend so there could even be another haul post for you guys. For my birthday, I did receive the Love Kills Slowly perfume by Ed Hardy that I wanted. It smells heavenly! I've also been on a Hello Kitty kick lately so I might have to do a Hello Kitty wish list post, as well. Also, a friend of mine has been asking me to move in with her for a while now, so I might be moving out next semester sometime. I'll then have another room tour for you guys, but unfortunately I won't be able to paint the walls or anything, so I'll simply have to do my best to make it as much like home as possible. I go to look at the house--yes, HOUSE =)-- the Sunday following Thanksgiving. Expect plenty of updates before then.

I hope everyone is doing well! Talk to you all soon! =)
