Emo Post

Man, I've never felt so exhausted. It's so confusing,
because I'm not doing anything. I'm working, and then
I come home and put on cartoons and make jewelry.
That's it. This routine does not constitute exhaustion.

The jewelry.

This is the first push I've made to actually create a
product and sell it. And it's dissapointing. I really
love my jewelry, and I would wear it all. But etsy is
filled to the brim with talented people. People who
do this full time, and do it better and faster than I do.
I really appreciate all of my friends who have been
supporting me, and buying from me. I really hope none
of you feel pressured when I complain on twitter, or
shamelessly plug on every site I have. Thank you guys.

But really, I probably wouldn't work so hard on it, or
stress about it if I had some sort of social life, or
romantic life. I don't. And it's getting depressing.
I feel like I've spent the last 9 months in my room.
I can honestly say I really have spent the last month
in my room.

I'm almost 30, and I'm watching cartoons in my parents
basement. Yikes...

It's getting harder to stop thinking along the lines of
what I should be doing, as opposed to what I want to do.
No strike that, those two things have become the same thing.

Anyway, I'm sorry I haven't been commenting on your blogs.
It starts to get hard reading about pregnancies, and babies.
Wonderful husbands and anniversaries.
I guess I was going to post about snowmobiling with my
dad, and about the drill team alumni dance. I just don't
feel like it, ya know?

Man, I'm exhausted...

Sexy People

I was going to post a ton today, but I feel like crap.
So this is all you get, but it's way better than
anything I was going to post anyway. This blog is
full of win.

I give you...Sexy People.

Peacock Necklace

A lot of my posts are going to start revoloving
around jewelry. I am trying really hard to make
enough money that it would replace a second job.

I decided to challenge myself and see if I could
make a necklace that a retailer made. I saw one
on Urban Outfitters that I really liked and
decided to go for it.

Here is the necklace that's on their website.

And here is what I made.

I really liked the hammered pendant, but I couldn't find
one similar anywhere. It was not easy cutting the peacock
feathers. So they don't look as clean as the other one.
But I think I did a pretty decent job. The manufactured necklace
is being sold for 34.00, and I made it for about 10.00.
I decided to give it to my friend Tasha for when she
goes to Hawaii. But if anyone wants this necklace, or
if you like a particular necklace and want to challenge
me, just let me know. And I will try my best. I love doing it.


I love Cracked...and crack *twitch*

To those who are pregnant (which is basically all of you)

This is just a small post, cause I came across
such a cute idea over at etsy. And I figured
all you walking ovaries could use some help.
Just because you are having babies, doesn't mean
you have to lose your sense of style.

Anyway, I came across this and thought it was super rad.
And there are a ton more sellers that specialize in just those covers.
So cute.

Custom Cases


Leopard Glam (my favorite)

They are reasonably priced I think. So you know, get one!
You can thank me later. Oh, and feel free to link this to
your other friends who are in need of some stylish baby accessories.
