I was just goofing off a bit on etsy and I happened upon the shop of one of the many wonderul sellers who've bought beads from The Slug and Lettuce, my bead shop on etsy. I noticed the creations that had the beads in them right away, along with all the other absolutely beautiful pieces she has up for sale. I just had to mention her store, asweetmagpie. I just love her jewelry, so head on over and check her out. And if you'd like to get some beads like the one she used then check out my bead store!
Allo! I didn't realize it's been over a month since my last post, time's been getting away from me lately! I spent a lot of that time gearing up for a trip out of state and for my finals coming up next week. And while I was on vacation my etsy store was bombarded with orders, including one for Domo, the giant amigurumi robot! And all of my owls sold out! So I've been slowly, slugishly in fact, working on a new extra-adorable wave of owls for the store, and I'm trying to make up another giant amigurumi. I've got a super-sized crocheted cupcake in the works but I don't know if that's going to cut it. Oh, by the way, there's a ton of new beads over at The Slug and Lettuce for y'all!
In other news, I've got a full time job lined up for this summer! The commute's a bit long so I may have to ship a bit less often, but it shouldn't affect anyone's orders too badly! I got a job as an aprentice at a small (really really small) yarn dying company called Art Fibers out of Vallejo, and they have a store in San Francisco. I'm so excited! They're the nicest people ever and it'll be so cool to work with them. No to mention it'll be nice to get ahead for once; etsy pays the rent, but not much else! Their website can be found here, so check them out!
