Now Playing Tracks

some things I’ve created (necklaces, a one of a kind raw quartz and sterling silver ring, bracelet, and pairs of earrings, many soap samples, too!) and am packing up to send off to Frugal Fashionista Clothing Swap for their event in May. In addition to being able to get some awesome second-hand items, this event also sells grab bags full of goodies and other handmade items created by independent artisans like myself. All money made from this goes to support the hardworking ladies who throw the event, as well as donations to RAINN and other community services. Please check out their FB page and/or view their Meetup site here for more info. Thanks! (: 

This is a one of a kind raw quartz gemstone wrapped in pure silver wiring. I got that rock out a river near here, yo. It’ll give you magic powers n’ stuff. Get it here, or have me make a custom one for you. I also have amethyst and amazonite ..rubies as well but right now they’re in pure raw form & need to be polished (coming soon).

Finally finished the tutorial today for making soap. It’s an easy how-to for people just starting out, since most online recipes and tutorials are for huge batches. Most people mess up their first time or 2, that’s a lot of stuff wasted..ain’t nobody got time fo’ dat. I would’ve just re-posted the whole thing here, but I can’t get it to format right, like I can on my other blog. So head on over HERE and check out the tutorial, if you want to try making your own soap! ♥

This is seriously some of the most amazing sculptures I’ve ever seen. I’m hoping to get ahold of a cat or alien wall art piece from Jane Priser some day. I absolutely adore the colors, details, and imagination put into these. She only charges around $40-$70 for them, too. How freaking rad is that? Out of this world art at down-to-Earth prices. I love it. People like her inspire me so much.

I am 11 weeks pregnant with my 2nd child. My son was born back in June of 2002.. so there’s a big age difference. It was unplanned and unexpected (was told my chances were very slim to none), but the dad is around, making sure me and baby are doing good, etc. This is what it looks like now (photo from iVillage.com). Maybe it is because I was so young when I had my son that the pregnancy went a lot easier.. This one is kicking my ass @__@ I felt nauseous for a long time, finally got over that..but am having body aches and fatigue a lot. My glucose levels and ketones were kind of out-of-whack when my blood results came back, so I’m trying to eat gluten free as much as possible, maybe even go on a disgusting, boring, diabetic diet (yay ~_~). All-around though, I’m pretty excited. The docs should be doing the ultrasound to determine the gender about 7-9 weeks from now. I’ve already got the most perfect boy in the world, so I’m kind of hoping for a girl ;)
