AW CRAP.
Happyfallout has uncovered my retardedness again- I said the filler bangles were 7" in diameter in the tute. Diameter is the line going across. I meant circumference. Thats measuring it around. I took geometry in high school, promise I did. Now I don't know how to fix it since it's all already on line... Poopshoots. I mean, sure it took an astrophysicist to notice!!@!!

Well, plus I found another way to share PDFs online since I broke the first site.

 At first I was jumping around in celebration over the success of the tute but now I'm just stunned and shaking my head. Clearly tutes are the way to go. I mean to enable me entry into the middle class as we were previously discussing what with my selling out and all...

Oh but guess what? I made things! First some rings, and then a whole different set of rings that look exactly alike.

I love that these are all adjustable.
And then I went a bit nuts with the brooches.

How long has it been since there's been brooches in shop? (The word brooches makes me nuts! Cuz it looks like it would be pronounced bru-chiz, but its actually broaches  or bro-chiz... Oh nevermind!)

Y'all remember ages ago when I said I had a bunch of brooches to use on brooches?

Well, see, I wasn't lying. Even though it was 30 years ago.

I'm no astrophysicist but I picked up on that little flaw about circumference/ diameter too, I was just so gobsmacked (love those Brits) at how wonderful the tute was I didn't bother to speak up. But since we are on the subject I will take this one step further. To comfortably slip my bangles on and off I gave mine about 9 1/4" circumference. When I measured out 7" only Lavinia Warren could squeeze a hand through that! (look her up) With that said I think the job done on this tute was still phenom, I hope there will be more in the future and damn, you read my mind on the brooches Marina! Was just saying to myself today, someone needs to bring the brooch back. And who better to do it?? You rock girl.

Brooches on brooches... cool ;) lol

And I know what you mean about words that look like one thing but sound like another... for me it's Pączki .. we actually pronounce it 'poonch-key' (it's a doughnut traditionally eaten on Fat Tuesday -> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/P%C4%85czki )

Every time I see the word written out I stop and get this weird look on my face as I try to sound it out.. then suddenly it clicks as to what it is. Really happy we only have to deal with the word once a year ;)

Aw frick- I wanted to buy that 'everything that's you' brooch, and it's gone already! Bitches. You gotta stop being so popular.

Some people do say brooch as 'broo-ch' if it makes you feel better; mostly Scottish people.

I read that tute THREE times and I still didn't pick up that measurement thing.

Your bro-chiz are so pretty, perfect mix of grunge and shabby. Fiance over here is chuckling and said "damn" in response to you calling beatnheart a slut. Your blog is always an entertaining read with our morning juice. xo!
