I finally got some decent pictures of this guy. The key was getting it on the mannequin so it looked like less of a junk pile.

As usual I have no idea which picture should go 1st. Imna go switch them again.

So have any of you been struggling with Relevancy? I have. One result of which is now I, too, have those tacky, paragraph-long titles.

Did you know you could just click and drag pictures from etsy or anywhere onto your post you're working on? yup. But then it jacks up your formatting sometimes and that's what's happening to me. Ugh!

Did I need to blog all those you saw yesterday? Maybe not. But it's such a habit to put up listings then announce it here.
OK, here's the question for today. Spirited Earth left a comment saying it was OK if I don't include a mile-long list on each post saying where I got everything. "Leave a little to the imagination, you source-naming slut," I think were her exact words.
(bead porn)
This dropped my jaw something fierce. Because people are always whining "where do you get all those blah blah blah?" OK, not whining, but that's how I'm imagining it right now- spoken through the nose. So I thought that by telling you the exact source of each thing... folks would finally accept that... I'm not cheating? I don't have a magical source? They are real physical objects?

(so you don't just see a big block of text and just skip over it.)
Huh. I'm discovering something about my subconscious here I didn't know... It's like when I'd teach a bit of language to my English class and ask, "Has anyone ever heard this?" and if someone said yes, I'd be all, "See! I'm not making it up!!" Because when learning any language, everyone's first reaction is always, "That can't possibly be how people say stuff. That's way too weird."

But why would I have this same feeling with jewelry?
It also happens when I tell people I'm from Uruguay. I think they're gonna say, "That's not a place! You made that up!"

(and my friend's girlfriend just GAVE me this tin! Color!)
OK, but! the real reason for this post was to let everyone know who doesn't already that now, with the whole relevancy thing, renewing posts no longer works to promote your stuff!!!! So yay, you can save your $$, but boo, you don't have an easy way to land on top of the heap.


Also, I have a slightly embarrassing admission to make. I made a cutesy Halloween necklace.

I'm wondering when to list it. Is it too early for Halloween?

HOT DAMN! I saw that bracelet in this post and it was love at first sight! I am so happy to be getting my very first Fanci piece. :)

No, it's not too early for Halloween. I think you should go ahead and list it! And, I agree that you shouldn't have to list the specifics of every item that you use in your pieces. If someone is curious about a particular bead or whatever, they could just convo you and ask about it, couldn't they?

Love that Halloween necklace -- cool! And I love when you tell where you get your stuff - I'm always looking for supplies(beads).

Never too early for the 'ween- people do it all year! That's what I heard- in Australia we go straight from Father's Day (today!) to Christmas in one weekend. Seriously I've seen christmas shit already.

I love your posts, they're so funny. But totally don't forget to put 'steampunk gothic lolita' in your title! It's like the biggest trend and junk! OOAK! Owl feathers! Occult hipster shaman mustache!! Poncho!

The tin, the tin! I collect cool tins, glad we have that in common!

I'm always so interested in what you make!
