Craft Photoshoot!

So.. obviously I am horrendous at taking photos... so I went to my friend's house for him to take pictures! He's very good at photography! He took one look at my charms and constructed a light box for them in a minute. Lol. You can check out his work here:

And if you'd like, you could skidaddle on over and check out the rest of my stuff :P

I haven't touched etsy in a few months.. ohhhh boy I can't wait until school is over. :) I really do dream of being successful with my crafts one day... if only.. <3
Just need time to practice, eh?

I absolutely LOVE the way the photos turned out. Check 'em!

Spring Snow?!

Yesterday was the first day of spring... and yet... it snowed. In Texas. Again.. What is wrong with Texas weather this year?? I don't mind though. :) Although.. it was just 70 degrees on Thursday and was beautiful outside...

I saw Alice in Wonderland yesterday. I'm not sure if I like it or not. At least the strawberry lemonade was delicious. :D

Spring break is just about over. It's back to school and work tomorrow and yes... midterms. -sigh- I can't decide whether or not I should stay next semester. It's so difficult to keep up with classes and studying and work, especially since it's an office that opens on weekdays until 5 so it can't be helped that work will be the same day that there are classes. It used to be so lax when all there was to life was school and studying. There was no stress! Now that MCATs are in play it might just be important to leave set aside time to study. I can't get into medical school with crap grades and no sleep.

Alas... to craft a little bit before I have to head to the library to study.. pfttt.

Plushyou Olympics Contest and Some Bombin'ness!

So... aside from work + school + family gunk I finally got around to do some sewing... granted I'm on Spring Break and am behind on studying =[

Plushyou did an Olympic plush contest! And embarassingly, my amateur-self decided to partake. I know that amongst the 200 that signed up, I'm pretty much on the bottom end of talent. I'm still learning though and it excites me! I'm pretty proud of myself though!

I'm not usually home until nightfall... so my photo is in the dark. >.>;; I still had fun with it! It hardly snows in Texas, minus that one insane day it snowed a little over a foot, so I shaved ice and threw it around while taking the picture.. lol!

The Bomb is my newest plush. After 8 hours of labor, he was born and I shall call him Bombster. :P

Light 'em up!

Now.. to shower and to go to bed. Work at 8! ;_;

I live in Texas where the most snow we see is really an inch layer of semi soft semi hard ice. (ouch). Somehow, this past Thursday it snowed.. heavily. It was amazing! There were giant snowmen and bunnies and what nots being built everywhere! Everything was covered in layers and layers of snow. It was beautiful. The news had said there was about 12.5 inches of snow, beating out the old record of 1.4/1.6inches (?).

I really do hope it snows like this more often here.. somehow..

The view from a bridge at school. So pretty!

The Charms Continue

Today was nice and quiet. There's not much to say except that school starts next week and it's going to be another hectic semester with school and work. On a lighter note, I finished painting some more charms. Yippee!

Only anime can make poop cute ;D I made a red one as well for my coworker! Now.. to wait for that paint to dry. :]

A Mixture of Love and Dreams

I'm always surfing around reading blogs and on a lot of blogs are links to amazing stores. I LOVE these stores. I can't find anything like these in Texas.

I ran across and knew I had to have this shirt.

Totally bought it... it's a combination of my love for cute and art and my dream of med school. <3 I should totally wear this under my lab coat to work. How awesome. I think this shirt just made my night!

For the things you love

I've been trying to find some down time in between everything to craft, but I'm so bad at organizing my time. Then I read a blog entry on Katja's blog:

She's so busy and still finds time to do what she loves. I think that's true passion there. Made me realize that if you love doing something, there's always a way to find time to do it.

With that said.. after work and dinner after the past 2 days I worked on some charms :]

I'm not done with the mushroom yet.. the paint was still wet when I had gone to bed.
And my funny little pudding guy. I totally need to find a better camera with better resolution. x]

And to end, a representation of my favorite word/feeling:

After all.. what is life without hope?
