Octos and Chocolates

Hello everyone! Sorry for the inactivity lately. On Friday I am leaving on a trip to Oregon to see the musical Wicked, so most of my energy and finances have gone towards the planning and organization of said trip.

In other news, however, my Octo from Northernista's Blog Giveaway arrived yesterday! (Thank you so much by the way; I love her!) She is so sweet and adorable and delightfully purple! Northernista also included a super-cute hairpin in the package as well!


I haven't thought of a name for her yet, though. Perhaps my lovely readers have a suggestion?


And in other other news, I received my tasty package from blusparrow the other day! I got 8 Sparrow's Eggs and some Chai Tea Latte Popcorn. They were both so tasty! It was difficult to save the chocolates for my boyfriend, but I managed somehow. Although I then proceeded to eat them all at his house anyways, leaving him with nothing.

They also came in such adorable little boxes! With cute ribbons and decorative paper flowers. Blusparrow was also incredibly kind, considerate and offered absolutely wonderful customer service. If anyone is looking for some delectable treats, I would highly recommend her shop!

New Stuff!

Hey everyone! Sorry for being inactive lately but life has left me rather exhausted. I will spare you the long rant, however, and instead leave you with some positivity!

And that positivity is new Etsy stuff! Yay!

First I bought 3 of the most gorgeous scarves I have ever seen from Suebeebuzz. Here's a piccy of myself wearing the lovely blue scarf. (Sorry, one picture is all I can muster today, but I'll definitely show off the others later!)



I also received my wonderful new earrings from ASADesigns. Here they are in my ear, (they're the cute danglies at the bottom!)

An Indie Christmas

This Christmas me and my awesome friend from California, (Meri), exchanged handmade gifts. I just got these adorable pictures the other night of Meri and her evil starfish, and so I thought I would share the cuteness with you all.
















Awwww, isn't she
ADORABLE!?


















And here is the awesome hat and octopus I got from Meri! Look how cute my octopus is! And my hat is so funky!


















His name is Murphy the Roctopus. Here he is rocking out to Clint Eastwood.

Story Time #1

So it has come to my attention that I am a very bad blogger. No, it’s alright, no need to try and make me feel better about it; I know it’s true. Unfortunately my life is rather uninteresting and so trying to write about my daily activities can be tedious at times.

But not to worry; I have come up with the perfect solution! I will simply embellish the details about my life in order to better entertain you, my dear readers. No, I do not intend to lie! I am simply going to write the facts of my life in a way that is more… enjoyable.

And with that, I welcome you to my new blog segment… Story Time.



It was a rather uneventful morning; I was sitting in my sewing room, working very hard and being productive. In just under an hour I had finished sewing 147 Mopey plushies and had over 200 sales on Etsy, (which is actually very slow for me).

I was becoming a bit sleepy due to the tedium of my incredibly slow morning. I lay my head down on my keyboard and drifted into a calm, soothing sleep. Unfortunately, this did not last long as I was rudely awakened several minutes later by radioactive zombies.

I could tell they were radioactive because of the faint, green aura of sludge that surrounded them. Naturally, I tried using my amazing salesmanship instincts to persuade the zombies into purchasing several Mopey plushies for 500 dollars each.

It seemed, however, that these particular gentlemen lacked the sufficient funds to purchase quality handmade goods. In fact, the offer seemed to upset the radioactive zombies and actually sent them into a mad, blind rage.

The maddened zombies then proceeded to devour my brains before mindlessly wandering off again into the streets. This unfortunate turn of events left me rather exhausted, so I decided to take another nap.
