New Treasury about the piano!

Check it out!

I hope you like it! :)
I am absolutely drained for crafting ideas.

I am so stressed over nothing right now. I just don't feel right, and I don't know what to do but watch old reruns of 90s television shows on ABC Family.


Any suggestions so I can stop moping?

I got the most amazing package in the mail today. My mom's friend knits to keep herself occupied, and she sent my mom a scarf about a week ago. My mom called to thank her, and I told her that she needed to sell them, because she would make a ton of money on Etsy. And she would. So, today, I went to the mailbox. She sent me three scarves! I'm so excited! Look how gorgeous they are (please excuse my ugly mug...):

This is the first scarf. It is a dressier scarf (meaning it's not meant to keep warm, basically. It's just for show!) in a really pretty hot pink color. It's sparkly, and it's really long, so I really adore it. I think this would probably sell in a heartbeat on Etsy!

This is the second scarf. It is a little warmer than the first, but still, I'd consider it more for looks than function. It is several different colors, as you can see from the picture (green, blue, yellow, pink, red, etc.). It's so fluffy! :)

This is the third scarf. My favorite. It is mainly black, but it has accents of red and silver in it. This scarf could definitely keep you warm! It's so fluffy (the black yarn has extra "hair" or whatever that hangs off of it) and soft and comfortable! I love it!

This is a picture of all three scarves together. Pretty, no?

And since she did such a great job with all these scarves, I decided to reciprocate and send her a card set. It contains eight cards that look like this:

4 puppy cards


4 kitten cards

I'll probably add more cards or something. I think she'd like a big ol' package of stuff to open! :)

Oh, my poor friend...

He is having the worst semester EVER so far. Everything that could possibly go wrong for him has gone wrong. So, I made him this card:

It's a picture of Miles Davis, the famous jazz trumpet player (my friend is an avid trumpet player and composer, and he loves jazz). He quote says, "My future starts when I wake up every morning... Every day I find something creative to do with my life." -Miles Davis

Hopefully, this card will cheer him up a bit. I feel so bad that nothing is going right for him! :(

I think today I will post some of my favorite things by some of my favorite people on Etsy.

Number One
My Personal Tribute to Andy Warhol

This item is VERY appealing to me mostly for the colors. I loooooooove the cute little banana on it.

Number Two
Boob Button/Magnet Set

It's boobs. What more is there to say?

Number Three
Hearts You Pocketbook Slash Checkbook Holder

I absolutely love the pattern and colors on this checkbook holder. Very, very cute hearts pattern!

Number Four
ILITT-500 Keyboard Clutch Wallet

What can I say? I'm a piano player, so of COURSE this would automatically appeal to me. The thing is, though, I adore the detail on this wallet. Very professional looking.

Number Five
Neon Green Fur Caplet

This is so amazing! I love the lime green and pink combination. So fluffy! This would be a perfect addition to any wardrobe, mine included!

Number Six
LoveHate Relationship Tee

I think this kind of sums up a lot of our feelings on the subject of love. I just think the shirt was a very novel idea. Depending on the way you read the shirt, it could read "love" or "hate". Adorable!

Number Seven
I'd Rather be Making Out Button

It's true. So sue me. I'd rather be making out. Wouldn't you?

Number Eight
Mosaic Pendant

Originally, I had this pendant in a different color saved in my favorites, but when I clicked it, it had sold out! I actually like the color scheme in this one a lot better, anyway, so it's just as well. This piece is just so beautiful. I love it!

Number Nine
Naughty Firemen Duck Soaps

Just in time for Valentine's Day! I think these ducks deserve a good time. So, so funny!

Number Ten
Skull Bracelet

Ok, I'll admit it. I've never been much of a skull and crossbones kinda gal. I have to say, though, AuntieDis has pretty much changed my mind with this bracelet. It's the perfect combination of tough girl and girly girl, which is totally me. I like this a lot.

Well, that's about all I have for now. I hope you enjoy these products as much as I do! :)

Teeth Cards

The dog just bit me. I am rather... upset by this. All I was doing was petting him. Annoying. So now I will focus all my energy on crafts. Because if I don't, I will throw the dog. Well, probably not, but he'd sure deserve it...

These are my favorite Valentine's Day cards. My cousin Vica drew the teeth as part of a comic she did about her wisdom teeth getting removed. I think the teeth are very, very cute, so I took them (with her permission, of course), and I put them on some cards. They are up for grabs on my Etsy, but I'm also mailing my friends a whole slew of them for Valentine's Day (or maybe not as valentines--maybe just as "I'm thinking of you" cards.). I miss my friends when they're away at college. I'm one of two of my circle who decided to stay home and commute. But that's a digression...

These are the other teeth cards that my cousin drew the pictures for. They are get well soon cards for someone who has just had their wisdom teeth removed. I just really, really think the teeth are adorable. And maybe that makes me weird. But then again, I've never really been normal...

What do you think of these cards? I <3 them. A lot.

Wow. Today hurts.

Oh, I think I am dying here.

Every single muscle I have hurts. I have a sore throat. I think I'm coming down with the flu. And on top of all of that, I have "girl issues", if you know what I mean. Ick, ick, ick.

But I did this thing online, and I think it's really cool. So, I'm going to post it here.

Well... I think it's spectacular. More crafts to come! :)

So, this is my new blog! I loooooooove it! :)

And I love Etsy! And I think I had too much rum. Oops. But I love Red Room Chat! :D
