Crafts for Sale!

Yay! So I finally updated my etsy shop! I have been on a friendship bracelet kick, and made a bunch, so I have those on there. I also made a kick-arse, one of a kind Hunger Games pin. And of course, there are a few doll sized items. I will also have some zines up when I get to making my new zine! I’m so pumped; I’m probably gonna start putting it together after I write this! So here are some pictures of some of my items. Please go check it out, and be on the look out for new stuff!

Also, if you have any requests of something similar that is in my shop now, or that has sold, or that you just think I could make, please feel free to send me a message on Etsy!

You are Lovely, It’s True

The other night I severely just wanted to make some type of flier to hang out in public. So I made this one, by cutting through pretty patterned paper, and gluing it to plain white paper. I really like how it turned out, and I have it hanging in my room now, but I really would like to hang it somewhere in public.

What I really would like to do, is make a whole bunch of different inspirational artful fliers and hang them in stores and on street posts, and on mailboxes, and just everywhere for people to see and take and be inspired. I had wanted to do this before and also make a zine for it, but that was when I didn’t even believe myself to be the things I wrote about. Now I just want to spread my art and hopefully cheer up some people’s days. Plus, it is the truth, that you are lovely. Also, each one would be different so people would know that the artist of them actually cared about each one. I imagine I would have to make like, one hundred for them to actually be seen around here, but I think it would be awesome if I could really get them noticed, and have people all curious about it. I also have been daydreaming about if I actually did make a ton and stick ’em everywhere, and if they put it in the paper or on the local news station. Of course, right now I don’t think I want to sign them or anything. If I do end up making a zine about it, I would put something like a link to it on it, but other than that, no one would no who made them. I think that would spark people’s curiosity, because they wouldn’t be advertising anyone’s art or anything.

Really it just makes me happy to see people happy. Hence why my favorite part of Christmas is getting gifts for everyone. Plus, art makes people happy, too. Even though it’s nothing too fancy, I really do want to do it. Just have a day of making as many as I can, and then drive around to places and hang them up! I think it’s a good form of street art. It is hopefully motivating for people, and I don’t have to worry about getting caught if I were to do graffiti (which I have also thought about). Also, people would be able to take them down and keep them, or pass them along or whatever. (:

Also, it would be really cool if you would do it too, you know, if you want to. Like a little street art revolution of happy and pretty things! If anyone does, let me know, that would be so awesome!

And don’t forget:

Bone Jewelry

Lately I’ve been really obsessed with bone jewelry! There are so many pretty things on Etsy that I wish I could afford. Once I start my job and have paid the first month on my camera, I am going to buy something. Anyway, here are a few pretty pictures of some of the animal bone jewelry on Etsy that I’ve been loving. Most of them are real bones, but some aren’t, (well, at least the bird skull earrings aren’t.) The first picture will link you over to the Etsy Treasury that I made with some of my favorite items.

Hope those didn’t creep you out too much. Personally I think they are gorgeous pieces. Also, the animals weren’t killed for the purpose of making the jewelry. Obviously, then I would not like them. I wish I could find bones and make jewelry out of them, but I won’t be holding my breath to find any. XP

Imitation is the Sincerest Form of Flattery

I liked this picture on tumblr, and wanted to try to recreate it. And so I did.

Mine, of course, is different. However, the idea wasn’t to copy the original. I just wanted to try to recreate it with what I have. The lighting is obviously different. Also, I wanted to show more of my hands than she did. I tried a few varieties of bracelets, but I liked just the one the most. What I wish was more similar was the length of the shirt. Mine is much shorter, therefore showing more of my pants, making it so the pattern of the shirt doesn’t really follow through in the picture.

So yeah. I like doing pictures like this. Also, you get to see my tattoo.
