Give Away Winner!

Sorry to keep everyone waiting! Midterms are done! Whoohoo :)
I didn't use a random number generator this time since there were extra entry chances. So.. I wrote everyone's name out and put it in a hat. Since the World Series ended last night and I'm a Rangers fan (it's okay, guys, there will be other chances hehe), I put names in my Rangers cap. :D Granted, Ivan Rodriguez doesn't play for the Rangers anymore. Lol.

There's over 100 cuts of paper in here. There were 72 comments (wow! I was super shocked there were so many people entering!) and many had more than one entries. Some even had five or more!

I had my boyfriend draw the names since my sister is at work. He didn't want to be seen so I had to take the photo after he drew the name and put it down. Lol.

Winner of a squid plushie is Teal! Whoo! Congrats! :D

Of course there's also second place for a charm of choice from my Etsy.

Goes to Kat!

Congrats again to you two! I'll be contacting y'all after I publish this post. :) Thanks to everyone for entering and all the very kind comments! ^_^

Where you pay money to have your self-esteem belittled for four years.

Just kidding. Kinda. Haha.

I'll have to admit, although it's been a rough ride, there were things that I did enjoy. I absolutely loved my structure of modern English class. The on campus events and concerts were great. I got to see bands that I love and could not otherwise afford to go see. What? Maroon5 for $15 instead of $120? Thanks! Bill Nye the Science Guy lecture? Awesome.

But aside from the fun stuff, the major stuff has been tough. The biology degree plan has not always been kind to me. I'll have my semesters where I can breeze thru just fine and other semesters where I'm struggling. Now that graduation is around the corner I feel more in a panic everyday. What am I going to do with my life? It drives me absolutely i-n-s-a-n-e.

At least I was able to avoid the "freshmen 15" until junior year. Hahah.

I dont think this post made sense. It was meant to, but when I started writing it I was like, ehhh I'm just gonna word vomit.


Need hugs. ;_;

Four Years

Four years ago today my now boyfriend came to school dolled up in dress clothes. He surprised me with flowers and asked me to be his girlfriend... in front of our friends. Lol.


I have to admit, he really is my better half. A lot of what I do now and what I am now is thanks to him. I never knew cons existed until he told me he was going to one. I started going a year later and I got absolutely hooked. He supports my crafting and is always encouraging me to keep at it. Hence birthed my first con artist alley table this year. A-kon 22.
A-kon 21

He does a lot of things that I like that he could probably do without. Like going to K-Town and taking silly photos. He doesn't look too excited. Haha.

He also volunteers with me for an animal group and craft group. Neither of which he really has any interest in, but he knows it's important to me and does it anyways. It's really rare to find someone that's willing to put up with me. I'm not the easiest person to be around, I'll admit that.
Now we're about to graduate with our Bachelor's degrees and are going to start another chapter in our lives. Four years sure went by fast. Here's to a lifetime of love and happiness. <3

Okay. /Endmushystuff.

Squid Plushie Give Away!

Time for an over due give away! Tee hee. :)

"How do I enter?" You ask? Why... by leaving a comment with your email for me to contact you! Or DA username if you want me to contact you that way. :P

This time there are extra ways of entering. You can like my Facebook page or spread the word (by reblogging, tweeting, tumblr, Facebook, etc!). Just include that in your comment if you also liked the page as well as a link to any re-posting. Each extra way is +1 entry! That means you can get several entries this time! Yay!

If you win, but prefer another squid over the evil squid, that's fine, too! You could possibly be vying for a white, pink, green, or evil squid! ^_^ Other squids look like this:

P.S. I'll be drawing two names. First one gets a squid plushie. Second name gets any charm from my Etsy Shop. :)

Good luck~!

Give away ends in two weeks! (10/25/11)

Shrooms and Onigiris, Yum!

Okay.. so not the edible kind. Haha. I figured I haven't updated with any new things in awhile. Although it's not new for me to have mushrooms and onigiri stuffs, I made some anyways since I was low/out. I loveeee making mushrooms. Mushrooms are the *first* craft thing I've ever made (both plushie and polymer clay!)

I was in a bit of a funk last week so I decided to paint and resulted in....
Earrings, charms, and necklaces. Hehe.

Oh! Since Halloween is around the corner I gave a try at making a ghost plushie!
Boo! ScarRrRryyy :o
Okay.. not really. Lol.

I met some really sweet guys at A-kon this year and they've been super supportive and helpful in the whole plushie process. Their sister wanted a cloud plushie so I made this:


P.S. I made a Facebook page. :x Check it out? ;D

It's October Already?!

This semester has gone by so quickly! I can't believe it's already October and already time for another round of midterms. Yikes! Good news is that I did well on my first round. Hopefully I can keep it up this upcoming week and a half!

This Saturday is going to be super busy. For anyone attending the Cowtown Indie Bizarre hosted by Etsy Fort Worth, Etsy817 is going to be hosting a make and take table. I'll be volunteering the first shift. ;) Afterwards I have a baby shower and then a birthday party. Finally somewhere to go on a Saturday.. haha.

I keep saying I'm going to do another giveaway, I promise it will happen! I just need to put together an image to start it. :x As for now.. back to studying biochem!
