I have a LOT of crafting materials at home that aren't being used that I need to get rid of. Rather than throw it away, I decided to sell them. They include crochet/knitting yarn and sewing material. For pics and prices please contact me at email@example.com. Serious inquiries only.
I recently started painting my nails again after a long hiatus. There are so many inspiring nail designs on instagram and on youtube that I couldn't resist. With this design I followed a tutorial on youtube from getnailedd. She has some great tutorials and they're relatively easy to replicate.
Heres my version of the Vintage Rose Nails:
I love the way this turned out. Check out the youtube channel for more fab designs.
I ordered some of this faux leather material from Fabric.com because I had a vision of the Keyka Lou pocket clutch in leather. I figured this would be a more sophisticated version that the ones that I usually make with the fun kawaii fabric.
This is how it turned out:
I like the way it turned out, just a few minor adjustments need to be made.
Today is officially the last day of my vacation week. I unfortunately have to go back to work on Monday (waaaaaaahhhhh). But anyway, while I was home, I got so much done in terms of the shops. I was able to work on some new pouches and was able to update some pictures. It's amazing what the crop feature can do for your pictures. I just discovered it a couple weeks ago (slow, I know).
Here's a little before and after of one of the pictures that I cropped:
Ahhhh-mazing lol. I never was much of a photographer. At least now I know. I edited these pics using picnik, but now they're shutting down picnik after April 19th. Now I'll have to find another editing website thats as user friendly as picnik is.
It's been a while since I've posted anything on this blog. My only excuse is sheer laziness. I've been working my butt off at work, working 12hr days for the last couple of months, and when I get home the only thing I want to do is go to sleep. Unfortunately, having two little ones will prevent that from happening on a regular basis lol.
Anyhoo, a new year has begun. I don't have any resolutions. I just want to continue making my etsy shops more successful.
I have, however become preoccupied with instagram on my iphone. It's a highly addictive picture app. Feel free to follow me @materialgurl101.
