Jenny and Johnny

Went and saw Jenny and Johnny at the Culture Collide Block Party on 10-10-10.

They were doomed from the beginning when it took the crew over an hour just to set up. They rocked it anyway even though the odds were against them.

It seems there was some backlash when Johnny was trying to get the acoustic guitar to work and told the stage hand to "Get the fuck off the stage, I'll play it electric.."

Don't worry Johnny.. I agree. The stage hand wasn't helping at all he was just making it worse. Jenny to the rescue to lighten the mood.. "Shits free..right??? Sweeet.."

Some reviews from the night might tell you to "Get your money back.." for the free show.. Not me.. I love seeing when shit gets real.. They're just normal people who fuck up too.

On that note.. I'll quote Johnny one more time..
"Let's just play Next Messiah and get the fuck out of here.."

Count Down..

Bridal shower Saturday for my friend! So excited to see all the little things come together. Then we move closer to her big day. I can't wait to see how it all turns out. The paper heart garland is so cute. When I showed my friend she was at work, but she said she "screamed silently". She absolutely loves it.

Right now I am working on some final touches for the shower. Having random last minute ideas like these care instruction terrarium poems. We're giving them away at the shower as game prizes.

Onward to food! I am in charge of pasta salad and cake balls! Once those are finished I have to start loading everything up and taking it over to where the shower is going to be.

More ideas to come I am sure. I am running out of time for them all!

I broke one of my favorite craft punches and just went through a hassle free warranty process.. Basically, 3 emails to the manufacture.

1: Asked about Warranty.
2: Sent a picture of broken product for proof of purchase.
3: Thank you email after being notified a replacement would be sent.

Now back to crafty things.

Aquarium Tip

If you want to keep live plants, but have fish that dig up your plants... Take some fishing line and attach it to the base of the plant, just above the roots, then attach the other end to a suction cup. You can easily suction cup the plant to the bottom of the tank and cover the suction cup with gravel. No more uprooted plants by your little fishies.

A Long Time Coming..

I find it hard to focus on one type of project for too long. I feel like once I've mastered something it's time to move on to more challenging or interesting projects. I guess that is why my shop is full of so many different types of crafts and art. Lately, my focus has changed because a friend of mine is getting married soon. I've been helping her collect and make all kinds of cute little things for it. You may even see it on Etsy wedding blogs in the near future..

Meanwhile, in space. Here's a glimpse of things to come and new adventures in my shop. And if you're interested in daily findings and updates come say Hi!

Making new things.

Hey blog.. It's been awhile.. I am soo lazy or maybe it's too busy to write in you.

I've been working on a new style of pendants.. I like them. I usually make them with a 20mm shell bead with epoxy and now I found some awesome metal bezels that are the perfect size. They add a little something to them I think.

I've also been exploiting my sibling's kids again by using their pictures.. I don't think they mind though because they end up getting the free model pendants/necklaces/buttons..

SO until the next idea. Goodnight blog!
