Etsy Shop

I did it! And it only took me 4.5 hours! I have an shop now. Its called Fiesta Saurus and currently I've only got one tiny little item in there as a tester.

But its pretty cute isn't it?

A little bitsy hair clip made with love.

It only took enough time to waste the few hours I had between jobs.

For the Record

These are amazing -

Butter - sugar and walnut filled squares posted by this lovely pair Tina and Bob. Its a three layer square that was super easy to make. The hardest part was makings sure I didn't burn the nuts when they were toasting, which I usually end up doing.

Make them like this. I think they'd be a really good winter, possibly festive square. They remind me of really good grandma food.

Maybe I'll make them for my grandkids in a few decades.

Islands of Summer

This past weekend I didn't get too much (actually any) time to craft or cook. I was busy being on our island in the river. Two nights of partying and dirt caked on to every part of my body resulted in a very very content girl. I love being outside in a lucious green environment and being able to go completly insane with no repercussions. 

Wait! We did craft. Found item crafting! We collected amazing drift wood walking sticks and sculptures. We found a tiny animal scull (fox? muskrat?) and I fashioned a medicine man-esk necklace out of it.

Also, we made a bag of veins complete with a R2D2 voice box buried deep inside. Trust me -you had to be there. 

I went thrifting today and got some really mustard orang-y fabric with dangly white pom pom edging. I cannot wait to figure out what to do with it.

Okay Here we go, Something to inspire me

I knew it would take o.2 seconds for me to find something I wanted to save and try out later. Thanks internet!

I some how found journal pages illustrated and doodled and glued on by Geninne D. Zlatkis. She has a set of them here not to mention an esty shop of her illustrations. She has more then a handful of daily journals, sketch books, diaries and schedules - all of which seem very well attended. It makes me sort of guilty about my pitiful diary I hide under my bed.

Ahh I was going to upload pictures but this computer is dicks! I'll try later.

Well Hello

Welcome to my little blog. I need an outlet to talk about all the amazing things I find online. I also need somewhere to talk about the weird crafty bits I've been making. As the first post, this is obviously going to be the lamest post because their is nothing worth talking about right now - unless of course the weather.

Sunny as fuck.
Thank god.
