I promised some destash, yes? Well, this time it won't be just for free though. I figure since a real studio re-haul will involve some down time, I should be profit-minded or something. So here's the 1st lot, which I'm calling "The Dark Girl" for all you closet goths.
RaggedRobyn asked, "Do you sometimes solder the joins of your earrings?"
Because I was soldering and once I start I'm all
Star of the East opined, "You have 3000 sales with shitty pictures, you couldn't keep up with demand if the pictures were great." No way! I'd be a making machine with no days wasted on pix and editing! In fact, that might be the case as the glorious Karen of ArtBellaSurplus has offered to do all my photos for me. At first I was like, what and send all this crap over? But yeah, compared to this hassle. (It's not a scam Mom! I know she's reading this and thinking that.) She just sent me some pix to show what she could do and they were all of things she'd gotten from me. I had no idea she'd gotten so many things from me and I almost got teary-eyed. Pre-teary-eyed feeling. Not actually teary eyed cuz my meds make me an emotionless robot monster. Don't hate.
Alice said, "Just look at those pearly white teeth." Er. Yeah, cuz I totally didn't go into Photoshop and whiten my teeth out of a massive sense of vanity or anything. And I totally don't do a happy chair wiggle every time someone comments telling me I'm cute.
I also made this pendant:
Niece Marcela's 5 year birthday party was this weekend. They were with their little cousins on my brother-in-law's side and my sister asked the two youngest girls if they knew who I was.
Marcela goes, "She's Mommy's sister."
Carlos goes, "She's our aunt and she's very loco."
Little cousin Emmet, Carlos' best friend in the world, yells out, "I know what that means!"
"So you think Carlos just said I'm very Mexican?"
At which point for some reason all the kids told me I laugh too much.
