Folding over little teeth

These arguably pretty wristbands are the newset addition to things I have made:

I think that I might give in to the pressures of outside forces, and get a credit card. There aren't many reasons for this, but the few that exist are the behemoth known as Etsy, and airplane tickets. I resent Etsy's policy to only do business with people who have a credit card, but resentment isn't going to help me sell stuff.

Remaking shoes is surprisingly easy. There were pictures documenting each step of the remake of these blue pumps, originally very scuffed gold pumps, but then I deleted them all think I had already copied them onto the computer. They're pretty anyway, and have a cute white snappy strap.

There are not one, but THREE wholesale orders I'm processing right now. Pangea, Vegan Essentials, and Good Vibrations are all slated to recieve heavy packages from me shortly. Success is exciting, even if it is of a minimal variety. Vegan Erotica is no where near needing another employee (and I hope it never will be) but the hours I spend on it are increasing, as is my ability to make things faster.

Pyramid studs, in my opinion, are silly. I don't like they way they look, and I don't like the little teeth that secure them in place. Folding over little teeth seems so insecure, so temporal are way to attach things. But I have great piles of the things, and I need to use them up somehow, and there's no way I'm going to be wearing them, so I finally introduced some items to my catalog that are made with the damn things. But no triple row pyramid stud belts. I will not facilitate someone wearing those.

Failure Potato

I used to make potato prints. They were fun and cute, mostly because they were made out of a potato. I've even sold a few of these prints, the reason for their purchase baffles me, but they were purchased nonetheless. My plan was for this previous week's print to be one of this variety. My attempts were utter failures. I made three, and each time I asked myself "Am I doing this because I want to or because I'm too lazy to do it right?" So, there will be two prints next week, and this week will be for thinking about doing stuff right or not at all.

I was planning on sending you all over to see the potato prints of Samuel Curtis/Cory McAbee of, but the website is down so you won't be able to see it.

Haha! Number 3, and I'm still going strong!

Eggbeater prints and a clever new print drying apparatus. I already started next week's print, and it's a little mo detailed and involved than the last two.

I got a package from Salt Lake City Weekly a couple days ago. I had asked them for a copy of their Arty Awards issue, because they mentioned me and I want to save it. And when the issue arrived, I was surprised to find a little plaque included! It makes it seem so official. I was giddy with excitement. I'm going to show it off to anyone who visits my house.

The series of dolls are at their final stages of being finished. I thought I could squeeze a couple more exhibits out of this series, but it's looking like no one is interested in them anymore. I'm not complaining, as I already got two solo shows for them, but it is a little bit sad as I think these last ones are ending up to be the best out of the whole bunch.

Here's a few in the process of glue drying:

I saw "The Science of Sleep" last night. I highly recommend it.

Underbust Corset

There used to be a very detailed and involved photo and text tutorial on how to make an underbust corset using partially recycled materials here.

I used to have no hair at all

I deleted it because many people used my pattern and didn't credit me, tell me, link to me, wholesale ripped off my pattern and claimed they made it up, etc.

Remember, crafters, give credit where credit is due especially when people share free patterns.
Another update:

Fine fine, if you go and join you can view the pattern here:

Please leave a comment when you do, and post a picture of your finished corset.

Don't ever say I never did nuthin' for ya'
