Trying to be Good

I am trying to put $150 into my savings account each paycheck and then $150 to $200 towards my chase each month. Paying the minimum towards Kohl's and Elder-Beerman for now until my Chase gets to like $900-ish area. Trying not to spend so much money this pay period and slowly get Christmas presents for people ^^;. Though at the same time of saving money, I have to buy things for my table at A&G con... like the craft stuff to make with and such. I know I am going to lose money from the table, but people will know of my shop ^^;.

I am planning to get a car in the summer of 2011 or sooner (depending on my bill situation too). Which means it will be even longer until I can go to a Texas convention or Texas in general to visit friends. Family I can visit since I have a place to stay and food.

Right now this weekend I am going to work on making my gingerbread man flowers for Etsy and Artfire... then try on my snowflake ones ^___^... Here's a pic of the test run of the gingerbread man... test run number 2 will be better!! :

Woot! Collection

I have never been in a collection before on artfire. I have been in treasuries on etsy before. My Candy Corn Kanzashi didn't have a ton of views, so I was surprised that someone included in a collection. Franni is in it with me too XD. Collection Buddies!!

Here's the Collection for everyone to see!

Candy Corn Kanzashi and Christmas items!

I created a Candy Corn themed Kanzashi (flower hair clip) for Halloween. I think it turned out well.

I am also working on Christmas scrabble tiles, so far I only have one posted up on artfire. Going to get two more up later today after going to work. I am currently working on a Gingerbread man themed Kanzashi for Christmas... might also make a snowflake one ^_^.

Halloween Tiles

I just posted my two other Halloween themed tiles on artfire... Should I post these on my etsy as well since I tend to get more traffic there?

Finally Some Tiles!

I am doing my scrabble tiles a little different this time... I am allowing people to choose for them to be made into a key chain or a pendant. I hope this works out. I got late in the Halloween themed, but this is what I got so far (only the candy corn and spider webs are up on artfire):

Been sooooo busy! X_X

Things have been insane lately. My Dad got a job in Dallas, Texas and they are running around like chickens with their heads cut off (not a pretty picture, of course). I am planning to stay behind to be with my boyfriend of 26 months. I have been going to the house everyday I have had off to clean and pack my room. We are hoping tonight will be the last day.

I also have to reorganize my craft stuff since it's in a box right now... With that said, I will be busy all day tomorrow working on craft stuff after going to the Ohio Renfair. I hope to have 2 to 3 of the flowers and 4 to 6 of the scrabbles done, all of them being Halloween themed

Reopening Artfire Shop

So... I have decided to open my Artfire shop again ( and going to try to quickly make some Halloween items for my shop. I am hoping by Saturday I will have at least 3 to 5 new items in it ^_^. Maybe a few Halloween themed fabric flower hair clips and scrabble tiles.

Coming back!

I am coming back to the crafting world!! I am trying hard to keep myself busy everyday, lol. I am going to work on plushies for my craft shops. On top of that, I am working on my books still and hoping next year to send one into a contest. Then if I don't win, gonna just send it into publishing.

I am hoping on my blog that every Friday I will do a blog entry on a crafter that's unique and friendly. Good customer service and all of that. Going to have to work on the format and questions I will do for that. If not on this blog... a different blog ^^.

Long Time No See

It's been a looooong time since I posted on this thing. I haven't done etsy/artfire stuff for a long time, so that's one of the main reasons I haven't been on here. Sadly I still don't have time to make things, but I would like to get active on my blogging again. I am thinking of making a new blog... kinda like an advice column/Q&A. Trying to think of a name for it and all. I hope it works and gets a lot of attention. I like helping people and giving advice. It's probably going to be a relationship advice type of thing... but not just bf/gf (bf/bf and gf/gf) and marriage, but also parent/child, siblings, business, and etc.

Any ideas for a name?
