I had some nice policies set up on for my ArtFire shop and just changing them a tiny bit made them disappear!!! Now I have NO policies any more and I had a nice formatted list of stuff to cover everything. And I was an idiot and didn't make a backup of it!!! Omg!!! :-( I've been working on this freaking thing all day and now I just give up. I had an item listed and was ready to list a couple and now I just want to give up and crawl into bed and read and call it a day. Ugh!!! I even got a paper/cardboard cut from all this mess!!! Ahhh!!! Ok, gonna go try to piece it back together. I will just assume this time I will make them better and there is a reason why they disappeared. Its the only way I can keep from screaming. *sigh* I hopefully will have the shop link ready for viewing soon.
Nothing really to say today guys. I'm worn out. I didn't go to sleep until around 7 this morning...well I was in bed before that but I was reading my self-help book on writing. I have such mixed thoughts on this book. I will be able to review it soon for you all. But then around 11:50 something my door bell rings like crazy and a member of my family brings in the two cases of flat rate boxes I ordered. Finally! LOL! Now all I need are some small envelopes and bubble wrap. But today I remembered I wanted to send off for a free item and needed to get it post marked by tomorrow. Well I couldn't find on of the tokens I saved and so I went through my room and craft room looking for it. In the process I dirtied and cleaned up both rooms, but they still need a touch of straightening, but this search got me to do something I hate to do and try to avoid as much as possible. Never found the token, which is ok. Got cleaner rooms and minus some loads of laundry and a good vaccum, they will look perfect. Also started looking through my doll stuff and started seeing stuff I am ready to purge. So I am hoping to get a start on that and the laundry and vacuuming tomorrow. Fingers crossed. :-) But other than that I didn't do much today. If I have time tomorrow I plan on starting on my clay beads and getting them ready for sale and then I will have them done. Then this weekend I hope to get pictures of all my stuff and upload them to Artfire and see if I can start selling stuff finally. Fingers crossed. Ok lovelies, I am off to bed. See you tomorrow.
Happy Monday everyone!!! :-D So today I went out on the hunt for the Fashionista Barbie dolls. At the one Walmart on the other side of town they didn't have them and I got sad thinking they just weren't in town yet. But I decided to pop over at the one I didn't really want to go to and BAM! they were there, all of them, taking up a good hunk of the shelf. I picked the three I wanted and plan to go back for the other 3 at another date. Its just I don't really need any more blonds at the mo, so I would have to customize them some and I'm not in the mood for that now. The three are perfect as is...except I don't like their crap jewelry. So I will have to make some for them or give them some of the stuff I've already made.
Anyway, so I wanted to take pictures of them inside and outside of the box. Which is what follows.
I took this picture because this one was actually kind of odd. There were three of Sassy on the shelf and the other two dolls only had a few strands of pink in their hair while this one had a whole buttload of it. I guess she stole theirs and I scooped her up big time. I almost didn't want to get Sassy because she didn't have enough pink in her hair for me, and when I saw her I knew it was fate. ;-)
But after I got them out of the box I remembered how the slogan on the box saying they could do 100+ positions kind of interested me and how I loved how they were positioned in their boxes...which was done with lots of trickery and rubber bands, creative. :-D So I decided to see what kind of positions they could get into. Yeah, don't leave me with a camera and an idea people. I warn you now, pic spam is about to commence.
So there you have it peeps. My new gals with their new best friend Alix. I can't wait to start sewing doll clothes and using them as models and well I have some photostories in mind for them. :-D But I just wanted to share that with you all. Ohhh, almost forgot! Guess what else I got today?
My Snuggie pattern!!! Woo hoo!!! Snuggies are soon to be had by all!!! LOL! I got lucky, there were only two left. Now I just have to wait on a good sale on fleece...the good kind, and I will be a Snuggie making fool. LOL! Oh and I got my birthday present from my sister finally. It had to come all the way from Hong Kong, so I am enjoying that also today. Everything is turning out nice this week. Now if only I could get my flat rate boxes I ordered all would be good with the world. Geez USPS!!! :-) Ok guys, I'm off now. I'm super sleepy because I started exercising again today, so I will talk to you all tomorrow. Byers for now. :-)
So it has been officially announced that Basic and Verified accounts have unlimited posting for the holidays. If there was ever a time to try Artfire, this would be the time. Just wish I could get off my duff and get my stuff uploaded. But now that I don't have to pick and choose any more, I guess I just need to take pictures of my stuff and make some more goodie bags for everything to go into. This may end up being a very creative holiday season for me! :-)
Fashionistas are hitting the shelves of Walmart!!! And people are saying they are 10 dollars and some change. Woo hoo!!! I'm hitting the Walmart asap!!! And now that they are cheaper I wouldn't feel bad getting 3 instead of two. Hehehe, fingers crossed I will still find some. Hopefully I can get to Walmart tomorrow. I've been looking at In The Pink and people have been posting their pictures of their dolls, and you can seriously paint me green now. I must have!!! LOL! Ok, off to bed now...at 8:17 A.M.
Hey guys, thought I'd get an early start on today's post. Just checked the online sales fliers and found out that Hobby Lobby has got McCalls patterns for 99 cents and Hancock Fabrics has Simplicity patterns for 99 cents. So, if you were planning on grabbing any patterns...like the Snuggie pattern, this week is the week to do it. Get the Snuggie one early, those suckers sell out fast. LOL!
Ok, I'm off peeps. I feel sick as a dog. I'm not a coffee drinker, but I had some today and my stomach is showing me the error of my ways. :-( Talk to you lovelies again soon. Bye for now.
Hey guys! So today I finally checked to see if my Paypal account had been verified. Yep. So now I can withdrawal more than 500 dollars a month. Do you sense I am dreaming big in regards to my online shop? Well hells, you've gotta aim high right? Now I just need the boxes I ordered, and from what I read over at Artfire, they are changing Basic accounts for the holidays so Basic members have unlimited uploads instead of just 12. I'm not sure if its been put into action yet, but that would be cool, if I make a money off my shop then I will become verified by the end of the year. Fingers crossed! So I finally finished my photo cubes. No pics yet. I need to take some nice pictures of them first, but they are so cute. My mom wants to buy one of them off me, and there is one I really want to keep because its sooooo cute. So we will see. If those two are kept I will upload pictures of them here without a fancy photoshoot.
Well that's all I wanted to really say on this lovely Saturday. Talk to you lovelies later.
So I am still working on the perfect pattern for my Blythe sweaters with thinner yarn and thicker yarn. So far I am seeing I need to go bigger on most of them and longer on the ones I am mixing with fabric.
So the first one I want to show is the fuzzy orange sweater that I am still trying to perfect. The back is still a hair long, but its getting closer to what I want. But I think I need to go longer on this sweater by a hair.
But I so love how fuzzy the sweater looks. I wonder how it will look with skirts attached. I hope to have a finished prototype for you soon.
This is another one that will have a skirt, but I will be flipping the top around. It doesn't look good on this side. I thought it would look interesting, but in pictures it shows how crappy it does look. So gonna try it again. It also needs to be a bit bigger in back and a hair longer.
This is a long sweater that I like the length on, but the back needs to be a hair bigger to help close it comfortably. So hopefully I will have some prototypes and finished outfits for you soon. Ok, just wanted to update you on what I'm doing in the background. Talk to you lovelies later.
So I decided to make them now. I just can't get my butt offline yet. Ahhh. I am listening to the Handmade podcast right now and then it reminded me about some posts I hadn't made yet.
So a couple of weeks ago I bought a cute knit cap from the Halloween section of Target. I thought it looked so cute, but once I saw myself in it, I just thought I looked horrible. So I was on the way to return it when my mom said she'd buy it off me and give it to my sister for Christmas because she had mentioned to her that she liked it. Meh, why not. I don't have to go into the store then to stand in line. LOL!
So what I didn't like about the cap is the brim. I like my brims straight across. And I love the cat ears, but I would like to see some mouse ears on a cap. So I am going to attempt to make myself a cap in the form of a mouse. And it will have that heart detail. I loved that heart detail. So I wanted to share with you my ex-cap and my plans on making a new one. Just need to find the right kind of yarn. Humm, I'm getting a thought. Pink anyone? :-D
This woman cross stitches constellations. I just thought this was so cool, and wondered why I hadn't thought of this myself. LOL! Click the picture to be taken to the item page. Ok, now I am seriously off. Bye for now.
Yes, I know it technically isn't Thursday everywhere yet, but it is for and and for most of the world, heck in some places its already TGIF...lucky bastards. ;-) But I wanted to get a jump start because I will be signing off in a bit and working on craft stuff since I am finally getting the ball rolling with my shop.
Anyway, so while I was searching around on Etsy today, I found this uber cool sleep mask that I covet.
Blythe eyes!!! Ahhhh, is it not the most?!? I wish it were on the pink eyes however, but I'd still so wear it. Only thing I didn't like about them is the item description that called Blythe dolls creepy. I beg your pardon, Blythes are soooo cute thank you very much. Geez. Click on the picture to be taken to the item offering. Also click on the shop link to see more of their masks. They have dogs, bugs, view master, etc. Very cool stuff.
Well, I just wanted to share that with you all. I'm going to craft a bit and attempt to call it an early night. Bye for now
Hey all, so my sister just informed me that Amazon is letting you download Cake Mania today for free from its website. I just downloaded it and its the full game, not just a demo. I remember playing this game before and its a cute little game to play for those times you are bored.
Click on picture to be taken to the Cake Mania download offer and enjoy! :-)
Can't sleep, so here I am just after 5 in the morning blogging. Kind of feeling a little down today, might be me being tired, but I just don't want to go to sleep. Don't know what the ish is, but I should be sleeping. I might go catch up in my soap opera some. Not sure. I should be sleeping. Just have so many things on my mind right now. I guess they will still be there in a couple of hours. Meh. Hope you all have a good day and remember...
Talk to you all later on today. Bye and night. :-)
