Once again

the things of this world have kept me busy and I have neglected my blog. I've been working on pumping out more Gear Heart lockets and I may make a Gear Heart locket ring how much fun would that be! So I'm looking forward to creating it as well as dabbling in with the lovelies I have gotten off of that seductress known as ebay! Items that should be listed by tomorrow are the long awaited posting of the Esteemed General's Emblem

This fun button ring

The Regal Lion Cuff Links

Lastly this fun little tie tack lapel pin

I also have a key pendant to work on it is to be called Victoria's(Nike's) Key also one more item I need to get on the Etsy is Ephemere's Earrings which are amazing and photos of them have been very had to get right but I will get them up there!

Fun Etsy Stuff

I'm feeling better and to top it off I got an Etsy Treasury! These things are tough to get and I happened to be in the right place at the right time (in front of my compy) Here's what it looks like

They only last for a few days so it's gone now.

However, I'm still all proud of it and stuff =P

Breaking News

My stomach hates me and in angry protest has denied food. I currently have the Pepto Police standing by to keep the protesting in order. However, earlier this morning a fiery rampage let loose but it is now somewhat under control once the Bismol division of the Pepto Police stepped in. The protest rages on but it should subside within the next few days.

I haven't been sick with a stomach flu like this since one incident 14 years ago. I generally use sheer will power not to vom (as when Kieu and I had minor food poisoning from unhappy sushi) but this was too much. My stomach is still really irritated so I;m not eating any solids right now, just sticking with the water and peptmo.

I just got so many goodies today I don't know what to do with them I'm all stupid excited pawing through my treasures right now. I was able to finish one item today a steampunk military themed one and I'm indecisive about another. I still waiting on several items so I can finish a few more pieces then I can let my brain meats run free upon new creations. I still have several items to put up and I'm getting so behind, especially since I'm in the process of setting up a destash shop on etsy. I've got to get rid of the stuff (clutter) that I don't use anymore and items that I don't need that came in lots. I've got so much to do!
Upon my new obsession, which actually has been dormant for a while, is military themes (part of the reason why I drive a Jeep Wrangler)and this is being channeled though the steampunk stuff. Yeay for goodies!

Ru doing a happy dance

She's a weird and insanely adorable cat but she does this when she's happy and in the kitchen. Usually she can do perfect somersaults but she over did things a bit for the camera what a poser =P

I've been very busy lately I have 9lbs of vintage buttons (there's hidden goodies in this stash too) to sort through a destash/supply store to set up, I had to move all of my supplies because we're getting a new table that has arrived as I sit down to eat my dinner. So on the previous post I've committed to what I'm going to be doing next and that is learning the Lost Wax technique I'll be taking classes at Otis and I'll save the other thing until I've accomplished it. Other then that last night Jason and I did a shoot for a very talented singer/songwriter named John Torres and Jason being the awesome person that he is was able to get a Red Camera but the best part is that the operator is a pirate he had an eyepatch and a bald head (Pirate!!!). SO it was great went over well and after staying out till midnight I had to wake up early and drop off the stuff we borrowed from people this morning. I'm so tired.

How Inconvenient

So last night I got a piece of crappy metal plating in my eye I couldn't get it out so I slept on it to let my eye work it out naturally but that didn't remove it either. So this morning I had to miss church and go to the ER to get the thing removed (it was lodged in my eyelid but at a spot where it didn't scratch my eye, thank God for that) to make it to my mother's place for celebrating mother's day. Fortunately the UCLA ER is awesome and they took care of things fast, gave me a tetanus shot, my eye still hurts but I don't have s tiny flake of metal jabbing it from my eyelid.
I hate crappy plated metal partly because if you just slightly bend it the plating turns into dust and pops off of the metal(like it did into my eye). Also it wears down way to easily dealing with having to go to the ER just makes me hate it more as I try my best to go with quality products that last a long time substances are just out right crap. I know I'm a jewelry designing snob but now I need to get me some goggles and you bet they will either be steampunk or cyber goth/punk.

Cryptic for now

This is a big week in all aspects from the multitude of creative dealings to finally making a solid decision on what I push myself into next. I feel like I'm taking over the world in a way. I'm finally breaking through the confines of my subconscience fear of success and heading into the vast unknown due to my nature I am almost certian to succeed. It feels like several pieces in a puzzle are coming together all at once.
Ok so enough with the fluffy writing I've got some exciting things going on right now which will be touched upon in depth once they are fulfilled. Other than that I'm making things like the mad crafter that I am, and I'm totally focused in getting these items out of my head and on to etsy. Which has led to blog neglect but it's worth it for now my goal for the week it to have 80 items listed. YATA!
