In direct opposition to the previous post:



I really like how this one came out. Think I'm gonna keep it :) The center bead came outta a grab bag [one of those "BIG VALUE!" packs and was totally worth it.

I think this is why I keep spending too much money in craft stores....

Creativity!

So, I've been trying to find me a colourful, bright and not insanely overpriced necklace to have some flamboyancy that innit just limited to my hat. After a few days of searching online (and boggling at some of the shit people sell on Esty as well as some of the PRICES on Etsy...) I decided, fuck it, I'm gonna make my own.

Poke around Joanne's, find little, go to Michaels: Oh ho! 50% sale on strands. Spend a good hour or so just looking everything over before realizing that I need more than just this unless I'm gonna spend a looot more than I had intended. Find a beading starter kit with a gazillion seed beads and a few other things in it. Not on sale, but I have a 40% off coupon that brings it down to 17. Which is high, but doable and the most economical way to get what I want. Wind up dropping a good 35 bucks for that plus a few strands of singles/shineies. Lazily work on it on and off in the afternoon and...

Came out pretty good for a first project (not including one I made in girl scout camp yeeeears ago :D)

So. Now that I have all these supplies.. anybody want me to try and make em something? :) I have seed beads of almost every colour possible right now :D

Think that would be worth 3 bucks if I tried selling it?

Or should I try doing a small pack of like... 3-5 different designs instead of a single card?

At random

I totally love when things that aren't really Xmasy get grouped into Xmas clearance. Got a nice pack of ink pads that goes from blue to white on clearance because it was lumped that way.

I also got the DERPEST set of Xmas stamps for 4 bucks. Totally worth it.


So the transfer of Fran-web to KnN has occurred and everything seems to be working. Though I just realized last night that 99% of my Fran-web email was now going into my spam box because I had it set on an automatic redirect and GMail was all "SMELLS OF PROCESSED MEAT" AAAAAH as result, I missed the reminder notice for my charge bill and wound up paying it late last night. When it was due yesterday. Reeeeally hoping that it counts as being close enough to on time that I won't get whammed with a fee @_@ Need to transition to having everything go to Gmail anyway @_@

Almost have all the cards promised out! Just... have 3 sitting there waiting. Just need to finish the envelope on one set and, ya know, actually write something in them (WHOOPS) and then finish up the last one. I have the face of it done!

Sue gushed when she saw the card I made her and said I should sell them. Yeeeah with my lack of motivation? Phhht. But it was nice that she liked it. :) We also got each other more or less the same gift :D Hot cocoa and chocolate :D

So. Yeah. Pointless update is pointless as always! :)
