Bonjour my friends, Today’s post is a rather sad one… About 2 weeks ago me and my significant other (MR) have decided to go our separate ways in life. This decision was not easy to make and was rather made … Continue reading
I know I have been MIA for a long time now. I was focusing on finishing up my degree at uni. I graduate in December with my elementary education bachelors degree. Which is a big accomplishment for me and … Continue reading
I returned from my senior trip thrusday night. And I absolutely loved the city. The culture, the architecture, everything blew me away. I have been to cities before, but nothing like New York City. Since I cannot say enought, here are some of my pictures i snapped along the way.
I have many more photos but this gives a small taste. To see many more of my photos and prints for sale check out www.stitchamaroo.deviantart.com
Thanks for reading! Dont forget to keep crafting! 🙂
Build a veil is where you tell me exactly how you want your veil to look on your big day and I make it exactly how you describe. Here is what to think about when desgining your own veil.
– Tulle or netting color
– How long
– What you want on your veil, (feathers, flowers, lace, etc.)
– What style
– When you need it (I will need time to make it, do not tell me a week before your day.)
– How you are going to attach your veil. (this mostly depends on your hair style. If you are not for sure send me a picture of your ideal wedding hair and I will make a choice based on easy to insert.)
I also will do fascinators, birdcages, and any flowers you want to wear on your big day. If interested and want to see more pictures please let me know and I will get them to you via email.
Here is a select few of my work:
My mom’s famous line, “Honey, if you do not jiggle there is something wrong with you!” And boy is she right. With Americas strive to become a size smaller. We have forgotten what a real women looks like. A real women has hips, a butt, boobs, a belly, and cellulite. Not that we like having cellulite! But it is part of life. We need to be proud of our bodies, not treating them like they are disposable. I love food, wear a size 14 and I am proud of it! I think I look good. So why do we strive for model bodies? Is it because being a size zero is what society has made acceptable, if you are larger, you are viewed as a taboo. Which is crazy! Never deprive yourself of what you want, we only have one life to live. Dont live it always restricting yourself. Life is too short for that. So if you are sexy and you know it! Put down those nasty rice chips! Grab a piece of chocolate and play with your kids! Kiss your husband or boyfriend. And enjoy every small moment that make life so amazing.
I understand that it is important to live healthy, but do not let your weight or jean size run your life.
Now love your body, it is the only one you have.
I have recently acquired a Ipod touch for Christmas, and I discovered the App store! I downloaded many things to my Ipod, such as a calorie counter, Sudoku, Tango to talk to my boyfriend, and some camera apps. I could not believe all the different camera applications the App store had to offer! Me being very cheap, I opted for the FREE camera apps. I even downloaded a free photo editor to give my pictures the umphoof they needed. Me being the excitable person I am, I immediately started taking many pictures of me, making them look better. Then I looked through my camera’s pictures… Thinking about my first failed store, I was debating how to make me more desirable to my audiences. First appearance is a MUST! When you are shopping, you are looking for something. Let’s pretend that you are looking for one of a kind bracelet for your niece’s birthday. You are looking through ShopHandmade, because you prefer to buy handmade. You find the bracelet you have in mind, but what lured you in to pick this said bracelet. The picture that is the bracelet’s icon picture. If it isn’t clear and appealing, you would not have chosen it.
So what makes a picture appealing? Natural light is a must! Pictures just do not look the same in artificial light. Also how you present them, maybe on a blank canvas so the viewer can imagine it on themselves, or better yet on someone willing. Let people see your wares on someone to give the viewer a impression of how it may look on them. If all other actions have been taken, use Photoshop.
Here is an example of some things I have made using my camera:
Okay! So I have postponed the pot holder caddy tute! Reason being, I have to share this little project that I started on that is virtually no-sew!!! Yes, I said an easy NO-SEW project! I will not be posting a tute for this project, because there are so many endless possibilities for this project! The size I made is perfect for on the go moms to slip down in their purse to entertain their child on a car ride or in a waiting room, or anywhere. Its mess free because the velcro on the back the kids can stick it down and go, and moms can rest assured no pieces will be left behind! So take a peek below at the kids felt activity book and let your mind wander and imagine all sorts of possibilities for your kids book! If interested in buying a activity book instead please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Please note that mine is not completed for the fact that I ran out of velcro pieces….
