So, yesterday Joel and I went to Reno so that I could get what I needed for multiple projects I have going on Etsy right now. Before I did any shopping I decided it was time to rummage through my closet and sell some of my favorite, but much too small, clothing. I decided to start with jeans because I figured those would be easiest for me to part with. Seeing as there is now way I can squeeze into multiple pairs and because of that I have a growing pile of jeans that I hide in my closet, just in case I lose 20-80 pounds over night. So anyway I brought 5 pairs of jeans with me to sell 4 of them being super cute that just never fit me and one pair being a pair that me mom handed off to me that were middle-aged-house-wife jeans. I managed to sell the first 2 pairs at Plato's closet for $10.50. Not bad, considering the fact that I probably paid $100 for the 2. Yes, it stings but I can't exactly take them back to Abercrombie or Hot Topic with out the tags on them. Next I took the remaining three pairs over to Junkee Clothing exchange where I was offered $8 store credit or $4 cash, for the last 2 good pairs, one being Lucky Brand and the other I'm really not sure. So there went another $80 pair of jeans into the universe. Whatever. My closet has a little bit more space and I had a little extra cash to spend at Joann fabrics.

Anyway, now I need to go make a bag for someone so that I can once again under price myself in everything I do.

Bringing it back up!

I'm sorry to say but it's time I bring my prices back up.
I'm doing it now, so I suggest you head on over and get to snatching up these deals before I take them down!
My Shop!

Sooo Tired!

So, I recently started a new job at a local coffee shop, The Java Hut. It's my fave place to get a jolt and now I get to work there, YAY!

So this of course has to do with why I haven't been blogging lately. I get up fairly early and am pooped when I get off...yarg! Tonight I'm going to be heading to my friend Lisa's for a girls night with her and few of our other girls. I'm dead tired but happy to spend as much time with her and my other girls, as I can, before they leave for a bike trip in the next few weeks. They are going to be gone for a month so I'll probably be pretty bummed and lonely until they get back.

Anyway, I may have some funny pics of us girls when I get home, but for now I don't really have anything interesting to show you! Sorry!

Forgive me Father...For I have Sinned.

Just kidding. Also, I'm in no way Catholic.

I've just been really bad lately. I've been working on my blog layout and getting kind of frustrated with it, so I haven't had the patience to really post a blog.

First of all. I got a new job that i start training for this weekend. I'm very excited about it and I will probably be able to sell my stuff right there.

Second. I finally ordered business cards. I ordered them from I ordered Mini Moos. I'm pretty excited about it since they are totally cute and will have my product photos on them.

Third. The dogs are having serious gas right now and it's giving me a headache. (Not that you really needed to know that or that it's all that important of's just taking my concentration...ANYWAY!)

Fourth. We are still flip flopping on whether or not we are going to be doing the Kings Beach Snowfest parade this weekend or not. If we get paid it will be so. If not...I'm going to be a very unhappy camper and i will probably be working while it's going on.

So...the dogs farts are killing me...and I've been light headed today...awesome.

I also just finished a banana split ring for etsy/my mother in law. Here's some pictures of it...

Oh, yeah. And one of my artist friends passed away yesterday morning. I'm going to be in search of a photo of painting my face back when I was a kid. He was a well known carver and face painter. Bill Carson will be dearly missed.

I think that's just about all for this update...

DON'T Forget to check out on March 11th to see the article I'm in!
