everything's coming up pom poms

Here's the newest obsession: POM POMS. I need to find a bulk distributor because the ladies at the Michael's always look at me funny when I buy $50 worth of pom poms....

new projects!

Well, in the ongoing attempt to keep myself occupied in light of my current situation, I have procured two victorian/c. 1800s-era dresses. 
They are in rough shape--but I plan to give them makeovers. Ohboyohboy!
I swear I won't turn into a shut-in. I actually left the house today, by myself, on an outing. Went to downtown Frederick, looked around at downtown places for rent--didn't really see any--stopped by the ecoart festival where Lauren was manning a booth--felt awkward walking around by myself--and left. bah.

I'm not used to the whole independent woman thing. I think confidence is the main thing I'm lacking. I keep hoping some man will show me some attention so I can think "oh, okay, I'm still worth it. I still got it." I've got to get it through my head that I don't need anyone to tell me that. 
I think I still need time. I feel like i'm mourning this huge loss--I mean--this relationship. I nutured and cared about it for almost 3 years. Everyday, doing everything I could to tend to it, help it grow. And now, it is dead.
SO. I carry on. And will make some dresses. Sorry to be a Debby Downer. 
P.S. Lots of crown being listed soon!!

long time gone

Hello to anyone who actually reads this blog! 

Just wanted to check in, say "hey." I haven't posted in a while because I was dumped and had to move out in a hurry. So, this past week has been a shambles and it's not getting any easier yet. 

Trying to stay busy with etsy---just started a MOVING SALE/CLEARANCE. whooo hoo. So, I will keep you updated on the happenings of my screw-up (at the moment) life.

whew! Well, the air-conditioned induced hermit weekend worked out well, and I finished the Ozma crown. :) I think it turned out really nice!

Special orders always are such great ideas--why don't I think of ideas like this? SO, like the others, I will make more and add them to my regular repertoire. :) hehehe

feelin' HOT HOT HOT

This weekend has been sooo crazy hot, and HUMID. Like mid-90's but it feels like 100's with the 'heat index' or whatever.....
So i've been inside crafting! hehehe Just finished this one special order for a gal to match her shoes :)
Today is the big Ozma crown I've been working on for a week now for another fine lady's wedding!
Thank goodness for air conditioning.

Look Look! I'm featured on TRASH THE DRESS!
My special order nautical crown is enjoying its moment in the sun :)

I think I might make some more like it---the wood and shells look great together I think.

back in the saddle again

Well, today I shipped off a NEW CAR LOAD of etsy orders :) It's a Honda Fit (pic) and it's black--so cute. Had to pay a bit for it, but hey, that's what happens when someone runs a red light and destroys your car :) (i'm not bitter). Oh. And, I got a camera speeding ticket.

Thankyouverymuch world.

Okay, so I figure, once today is over (in about 43 minutes) life will be semi- back to normal for me. Got new wheels, gonna make like 4 new crowns:

A nautical one (special order) with shells and wood

A peacock/Egyptian scarab one

A au-natural acorn pod and stick one

A basic white flower one (the hot seller)

So, check etsy soon--like maybe even tomorrow, if i'm not too busy writing out all my new bills :)
