Santa Baby

My awesome new apron! Soon to be seen on etsy and if etsy knows what's good for it, it won't be seen at my next craft show.
100% cotton, two layers, rick rack on the bottom layer, pocket, extra long straps!
The most pirate-y, rockin-est, Christmas apron you will ever see, don't try to deny it.

The Mad Hatter

It's just a tiny little top hat, from the doll section of the craft store, but it's part of my super awesome Halloween Costume! Thank you Nancie Nan for giving me those plastic gems a million years ago when you first moved.
I am so excited!

The Great Shrinky Dink Adventure!

Yes, I bought some Shrinky Dinks. I learned from several pretty cool chicks this weekend just how awesome they are and what cool stuff you can do with them!

Aimee from Beach Chicken puts them on the ends of her necklaces. I decided to see for myself!

Now I have cool Jewelry Tags!

The never ending hardcore quest...

I made a necklace.
Maybe it's just my mood, or my more radical turn to the dark side lately...but this necklace reminds me of the Secret of Nihm and all sorts of Goth goodness.

Grabbed her by the wrist and...

Yes, I like to think on some days that I am super hardcore. Super.
So I made these black terry cloth wrist cuffs. They close with black pearl snaps and have a star sewn on...white, silver, blue and red stars are available...hey, if anyone can find black stars, send me the link!
You too can be as awesome as Shannon by ordering a pair! Email me for more info!

My AWESOME new ring!

She totally rocks! Not only is she way nice...but she made this really awesome ring that I couldn't live without. I don't know if you know this about Miss Shannonegans, but she doesn't wear jewelry...not often buying this huge ring is a step toward fashion accessory-ability.

She said the image is a picture of turquoise close up, but it really reminds me of the wizard of oz and the Wicked Witch! It matches perfectly with the color theme I am going for for my Halloween Costume, which is going to be a secret :)

(PS, I'm not a hand model)

So go check out her shop and buy stuff!

Hyde Park Street Fair

I didn't know anything about this crazy hippie adventure, but a spot opened up in my Etsy teams booth and I got to sell at the Hyde Park Street Fair.
It was NUTS! Tons of vendors and food and I really got to know some of my team members! Hattie Jane is going to help me with my Halloween costume...Amy helped me with some really great ideas! And I can't mention everyone, but they are all really great!

Swingin Martinis Designs did pretty well for it being her first real event!
Rock on! More events to come in the future! Christmas time is coming, Christmas time is coming!

A New Design!

But I don't know what to call it!
It's a really awesome toy for kids! It's a roll up chalk board!
I found some chalk board fabric, which is essentially black matte vinyl. Add some chalk and a piece of fleece and your kids imagination can go anywhere!

So help a lady out...what should I call it?

And we have a winner!

Recently I made a purse for the Chico Cabaret and their Unconventional Convention Fundraiser. Since back in the day I played Columbia, and the two chicks who have proceeded me are awesome...I decided to make us all purses, plus one for the fundraiser...whoever won gets to be a part of the columbia I haven't made our purses yet because I'm a bad person, but the one for the fundraiser went to a good home!

Apparently her name is Shannon :)

The Hardest Thing I've Ever Made. Ever.

Please ignore the unbrushed hair and the messy room.

Kimmy's Sequined Tail Coat for Rocky this year at the Chico Cabaret.
Of course we were making a lined jacket and of course I didn't have a pattern for a lined jacket.
Of course I waited until the last minute.
Of course it took me Three whole days.
Of course it is just a costume, but I hope she loves it and I hope to Goodness Gracious that it fits!
