I completely forgot!

I've been spreading the word around etsy and twitter that I'm stuffing peoples business cards into some promotional Valentines I'm sending out on the 9th of February! I still have plenty of room and would really appreciate some more business cards to stuff! I only need 10 business cards per business and I'm only charging $1 to help with the cost of postage. If you're interested email me, comment me, text me. Whatever! I'll give you the info and we'll work it out! I just want to help out some new (or old) Etsy people that needs some sales and can't afford regular means of advertising! Actually I don't even need you to have an etsy just have a business card, K?

Good Week! Great Week! Better Weeks!

So, I'm having quite a better week this week. Sales are back to normal and I've even gotten a few custom sales! My fave! Also, I finally updated the etsy shop after not posting anything out of, well, frustrations, lol. I'm actually quite proud of a few of the new items and I'm also proud to announce the launch of the Frosted Crossbones Lotion and Body Butter line!

In other news this is one of the custom items I did! It's a full soap cake for a nice gal that has a shop that she wanted one for! I thought that was pretty awesome. I now just have to shrink wrap it and ship it tomorrow! 

 I forgot to mention I'm also launching the bath salt line too!

I'm pretty excited but I'm also bummed that I don't have a bath, so I'll just have to settle for foot baths in the kitchen sink!
 Chocolate Chip Cookie
 Carrot Cake
 Lemon Pound Cake

I'm always trying to evolve the product. Cuz it makes me happy!

In other news Joel bought me a BARBIE!
 Not sure why she's raising the roof...weird.

 Prety pretty!

Also, the dog dog kept making faces at me...

I thought this one was super cute!
Excuse the messy house...I've been busy

Also, Trying out some new packaging!

 And I've been neglecting the PS3 I need to play some video games!

 Also I have to share a few of my favorite new product photos!

Well, I'm worn. Yes, I know I need to finish posting the So Cal photos...promises promises.
That is all. Now back to your regularly scheduled blogging.

So Frustrated.

So, I've been getting increasingly frustrated over the past few weeks. I have quite a bit on my plate business wise. I have a ton of new products that I don't have packaging for so I can't technically make them, frustrating. My other new products that I do have packaging for keep coming out wrong, frustrating. I've also completely stopped getting orders, FRUSTRATING! Sometimes I just want to throw in the towel...ugh. I'm also pulling out my hair every time I try to use my drawing software (Serif DrawPlusX4 if you can help me I'll love you forever). It seems like every time it starts out fine and everything looks good then it decides that it doesn't have to actually keep what I'm drawing...ugh. I'm sure everything is my fault and I don't mean that in a negative way I just mean that in a, I'm new at a few of these things and I'm not positive how they work exactly, kind of way. Which is really frustrating because I'm running everything by myself and don't exactly have any friends that I think know anything about any of my projects, not that they would even want to help me if they did. Ugh.

So frustrated. I really just want to cry or go on vacation or go on a shopping spree. I also REALLY want a cigarette and of course I try not to feed into nicotine cravings but, I just don't think it would actually help my absolute absence sanity.

In other much better news Joel and I did get to go to couples night last week, unfortunately we got very few photos and they came out quite blurry so bear with me please.

Blurry picture
                                                                            So, cute!
                                                     Joel wasn't looking for some reason...
                                    I promised a picture of the mid-game bloody it is...
Sadly, we haven't had a chance to get together with them this week, which really bums me out on top of everything else. Hopefully we'll get to spend some time together soon before my head explodes and I decide to sit in a dark corner rocking myself back and forth.

Did I mention my work space needs shelves? No? I need shelves...lots of them...there will never be enough storage for my things. Like Joel always says, "Your things expand to fit the space you have." Which is true but I've had to give a lot of my stuff up in the past and I don't think I'm asking too much to have a corner of a room to myself...ugh.

Enough ranting...I'm gonna go slam my hand in the front door a few times to see if I can get some endorphins going...FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU

Anniberthary Season

If you know me you know that I got married on my birthday. If you don't know me then, NEWSFLASH, I'm a spaz.

Unfortunately, I still don't have the new power cord for my computer so you'll still gonna have to wait for the rest of the vacation update. Anyhoo.

Party Time!!!

We just sound like a bunch of hens when we're together.

Brett (in the background) kept trying to get everyone to drink the booze he brought. 
I'm not why this was a problem...

Yeah, we had noise makers.

Being artsy fartsy.

Now, for a series of blurry photos. Look kids it's DRUNK-squatch!

Double DRUNK-squatch.

Not sure why I was posing like a begging puppy.
Like our fridge?

 I'm sure they were talking about gear or recording or some crap...LOVE YOU!

Cooing over the giant orange gummy bear.

Parading the gummy bear around.

It had to be done, he just wouldn't stop talking.

I love Joel's MAMA!

We made Joel take our photo multiple times since he couldn't get our angle right!

I don't know why, but I find this hilarious.

Different angle, DRUNK-squatch is holding a beer.

I think this one was taken before I turned the camera over.

Not sure why I photographed my stockings

Sarah picks at the gummy bear.

Wait for it...

{insert drunk barf joke here}


Jersey Matt and and his cutie girl friend Laura 

 Everybody wang-chung tonight.

Dev's acting like she is camera shy, HA!

Yes, I drunkenly lied on the floor to get this.

yeah, barf jokes, ha...ha

Not amused.



They are so cute that it sets kittens on fire.

Ya know....I'm not sure what any of this is...

Or this...

Or even this...but I think it resembles an orgy...

I think Mr.DogDog just disrespected her...No one respects the Laura.

I think we were doing the safety dance.

I'm finishing with a bang on this one...Joel is the mutant offspring of a beer factory and a unicorn...or...something.
