i'm so satisfied.
i'm so satisfied.
You can't really tell in these photos but this piece actually has a glaze I like a lot. It's a matte white with an iridescent yellow shimmer. I think it's pretty.
I just thought this glaze turned out really cool and different from what I usually do.
And there were a couple of people who wanted to see the lidded piece I made that I wasn't too crazy about. The lid isn't perfect around and I would do the top of the lid differently. Not only that but the glaze didn't turn out like I was hoping it would. But that's the fun of playing with glazes.
and now for yet another "things i bought off etsy that i love so much i need to share it with everyone" segment. I just made that up now, there is no segment. I'm just always getting things I ordered and can't keep it to myself. I think everyone should heart these shops and treat themselves to an item from either of these!
pin cushion and hair elastics from namolio
absolutely breath taking prints from alicebgardens
and last but definitely not least is this perfect pack from IndustriousLily.
Forgive me but I'm going to gush about this.
People, this amazing pack of paper goods cost me $30!
It came with this:
5 Letterpress Greeting Cards, 6 Folded Letterpress Notes & Envelopes, 6 Flat Letterpress Notes & Envelopes, 1 "Perfect Note Pad" (100 sheets), 1 pack of 8 Letterpress Gift Tags, and 1 pack of 5 Enclosure cards.
And the best part is you get to customize it!
I go weak in the knees for adorable packaging and this did it for me.
The wooden initial, wax string, wooden initial, and pink bellied box...
it was all too cute. And the paper goodies made it a trillion times better.
Have you ever felt like you got the best deal in the world?
If not, go buy this. And really, it would make such a lovely lovely gift.
I'm swimming in handmade heaven.
like a really serious addiction.
i think i hoard them.
i have maybe 8 or more notebooks laying around waiting to be used.
and i'm not talking boring school notebooks.
i'm talking etsy
so i made a stop at target a couple days ago for doggie poo bags
and a photo album
and came home with about $20 worth of
cute journals, a folder, and sticky notes.
i think everyone needs sticky notes with a dotted pattern.
i also came home with this book because
i decided i really miss reading
and because i'm not busy enough
i'm going to read it.
i also heard the book is awesome. better than the movie.
which is on my list of the things to see.
i used to stay up til the sun came up reading books as a kid.
time was all i had. where did it go...
p.s. as much as i don't want to admit im a targetholic, i totally am i also bought a dog grooming shaver kit thing. i'll save some money by grooming Juno on my own. Then I can spend that saved money on journals and notepads. Any one else groom their own dog? Any tips?
any similar stories of things you've done that you want to improve on?
**to those who know nothing about pottery,
thing is, i don't even know what i would sell yet.
i do things from ceramics and sewing, to photography and crocheting.
but i feel like i need to jump on it and give it a try.
nothing too big. just make stuff, try to sell it, and see where it goes from there.
any etsy sellers reading this, advice or encouragement would be very welcomed.
Picked up juno buno, got him in the holiday spirit and took some adorable pictures of that little runt.
Once the photo shoot ended
we did what we've done for the past three years.
Went to Glencoe Beach for the fireworks.
And let me just say, they blew my high school's show outta the water.
haha, another little joke.
slow shutter speed is funand this is supposed to be a heart out of light graffitii felt sticky after a humid scooter ride there
it was so so awesome.
and we had the best spot on the beach.
or so we thought.
i seem to have a slight addiction to funyuns.
after all it gives you FANTASTIC onion breath.
the show ended but we stuck around to take
a couple of photos to remember the night by
i think this should be a pantene pro-v advertisement.
boy is my face whited out.i used my lame camera. by this point the people next to us were creeped out and in a hurry to get away.
i hope you all are having a wonderful weekend
