Snow Day Accomplishments

I really need to work on coming up with catchy titles for these posts :/ Anyway I did get some things done during my snow weekend πŸ™‚

I finished the bracelet for a client, made another bracelet, and started a third (but it needs some work to get to a point that I like). I also got a few bracelets listed (including a few more colors of the fishtail rubber-band bracelets).

I think I’ll leave you with my new bracelets (click on the photo to go to the listing). All the viking knit bracelets have a light airy feel (it’s pretty awesome if I do say so myself ;)) and there’s free shipping countrywide so I suggest taking advantage of it πŸ™‚

FREE Shipping White and Black Fishtail Bracelet with Pink and Black Heart Charms

Now this last one is the custom listing but if you would like something similar in silver (or gold) message me (however is easier for you) that you would like this bracelet.

That’s it for today πŸ™‚ I decided to take an extra snow-day (the weather is still not the greatest, it’s icy :() So I’d better find something interesting to do πŸ™‚ Oh and big news! I got a job πŸ˜€ Now I’m an office assistant on campus. I start this week πŸ™‚

Have a great Monday! πŸ˜€ (if that’s possible that is ;))

Boy I’ve been busy. Between school and thinking of new project, I haven’t had much time to blog πŸ™‚ To be honest a lot of that time has been used doing “research” for new product ideas. I have thought of new things! I promise! But I could have gotten a whole lot more done πŸ˜‰

I’m On Kickstarter!

Jewlery kickstarter I promised you guys on Friday that I had a project in the works πŸ™‚ Well here it is! I started a kickstarter project to help me fund an expansion of my glitter resin jewelry. I want to add glitter resin earrings, rings, and other pendant shapes.

I would really appreciate any help you guys can give me πŸ™‚ With the supplies I need I will be able to expand my shop and make new tutorials. I’ve run out of my pendant supplies so I haven’t been able to make the tutorials I’ve promised you guys. And I really want to give you guys tips on making resin jewelry! πŸ˜€

So guys please help me, whether it is sharing my kickstarter with others or donating, I won’t be able succeed without you guys! πŸ˜€

Friday Faves

It’s that time once again….Friday Faves! πŸ˜€

I’ve had a pretty easy week since I’m on vacation πŸ™‚ This week my faves are sort of all over the place but all great πŸ™‚

Lets start with some pretty things πŸ™‚

Isn’t he gorgeous. Sadly he costs $125 (which I don’t have). His creator is the owner of the Etsy shop called martymagic. You can click on the caption or the image to see what other wonderful creations this shop has. Believe me if I had the money this angler fish would be my first purchase (I seem to have a recent obsession with angler fish…hehe :))

Next up we have something that’s just spectacular πŸ™‚

I loooovvvvee this ring :O If my future husband ever reads this (whoever he will be)….hint, hint πŸ˜€ I honestly would prefer a beautiful band on the ring than a giant diamond πŸ™‚ This is also from an Etsy shop (anjaysdesigns) There are even more gorgeous rings. Seriously I love these (and the prices don’t seem too bad, considering). Click on the image or the caption to be taken to the Etsy store.

Now this is a spectacular project:

Isn’t he a cutie πŸ˜€ He’s 8 feet long! I would totally learn to use a sewing machine just to make him, but there’s no room for him in the house 😦 I vow one of these days he will be mine! πŸ˜€ Click on the photo or the link to see the directions for him (they’re pretty good ones so I suggest checking them out).

And now I’ll just leave this here…:3

I hope you guys have a great Friday! πŸ˜€

Polymer Clay Flowers

Boy I’ve been gone for a while πŸ˜› Since my last post I’ve started school, I’ve taught myself how to knit, and I made some new products for my etsy shop.

There’s not much to say about school. I’ve already had 3 midterms and I’ve only been in class for about a month. I’ve learned that I really don’t like marketing and I hate my ethics class even more. I do really like my accounting class (that’s a good thing considering my intended major in accounting πŸ™‚ ).

I think that in the next few days (time permitting) I’ll post photo’s of what I’ve knitted (with links to the free patterns of course πŸ˜‰ ), so stay tuned.

So moving on I think I’ll show you guys what I’ve just listed in my etsy shop πŸ™‚ (Click on the photo’s to go to my shop)

polymer clay flower pendantpolymer clay flower pendantThey’re cute, huh? πŸ™‚ I really like how these turned out. I made a few other ones, but I don’t like them enough to post. I’ll show you guys eventually what else I made. I think when I post a tutorial on polymer clay applique. It’s a really cool technique that almost no tutorials exist for. I had to figure it out on my own πŸ˜›

Well that’s it for now. I have a bunch of stuff going on this week…I think. I know I have a job shadow at Ernst & Young that I’m really looking forward to πŸ™‚ I might be seeing a movie with some friends and I’m probably going to help out at a church event all weekend. Why is that whenever I have plans, I have a ton of plans that pile up all at once? I can never have just a bit going on every week πŸ™‚

Are there any kind of posts you guy’s would like to see more of? Maybe something weekly? I think I’d post more often if I had some sort of deadline πŸ™‚

 

New Stuff on Etsy!

So I finally put up some more stuff on etsy and guess what? I have some totally new designs up πŸ™‚ But first I think I will show you guys my favorite bracelet.

Viking Knit BraceletI just love this bracelet πŸ™‚ If you look closely you can see that the viking knit has two different colors in it. One of these days I’ll show you guys how to do this πŸ™‚ Just remind me okay? πŸ˜€

Now the next piece is a set of earrings in a chainmaille style

Chainmaille rosette earringsI’ve been calling them rosette earrings. I’m not really sure how to describe them otherwise πŸ˜› I really wish I had my ears pierced. I would totally wear these πŸ™‚ I also have another set of earrings up that have two rosettes, so they are shorter than these are ( You can check them out here )

Finally the last two pieces I put up for sale are an experiment for me. They are mixed media bracelets. More specifically I decided to mix viking knitting with bamboo cording. This is the result πŸ™‚

viking knit and bamboo cord twisted bracelet viking knit and bamboo cord lizard braceletI think they both turned out pretty good. I like the top one the most πŸ™‚ (But the lizard is so cute πŸ˜› It’s sooo hard to decide!) I’m trying to think of more ways to mix the two materials. I haven’t been able to find anyone else who makes these so hopefully I’ve found a niche πŸ˜€

What do you guys think? Which is your favorite item? πŸ˜€
