Woot woot!

So I sold a couple hats to the guy from the smoke shop. I only made $20 but it was happy green cash so I'm stoked about that. He's gonna hang em in his shop and take them for a test drive to see how high the demand is. I kind of feel bad for the guy because hes in sort of a hole in the wall and its kind of hard to find him.... so I dont think business is booming for him... :(

Everything is going wrong! I decided to try to get a Walmart card so I could use it for my online store and stuff. So I go to walmart, buy the little card, and dial the number to activate it. After an hour of answering an automated machine, I finally get a live person. Now I'm excited cuz its almost finished. But the guy tells me that my information doesnt match my social security number. I'm sitting here going how is this possible? So I try again, This time I fill my info online. Still not going through. I'm so pissed.

And thats not the only thing thats messed up. This smoke shop opened across the street from me and the guy offered to buy some of my hats off of me. So I make him a couple of different styles andI wanted to sell em to him for 15 each. I have no business skills whatsoever so I pretty much screw that up. He wants meto make a couple more and bring them in friday. But he wants them all in rasta colors. I made some really pretty pieces.

Great. And now blogger wont let me upload any photos. GRRRRRRR!!!!!! FML!!!!!!!

New item!

It always seems like I just keep creating new and wonderful things. my mind is growing and expanding and it is wonderful. I learned how to make roses. I really wanted lilies but I couldn't find any patterns for it so I figured I'd have so sell roses. I'm making my first dozen for my Panda. I hope she'll like them. She tells me that I'm the only person to ever give her roses so I want to be the first to give her roses that will never fade, wilt, or die. I think that is the saddest thing about roses, that they die. Its terrible. Anyway, before I depress myself with thoughts of dying flowers, here are a few pictures of my roses.

I am planning on selling these im my shop that I hope to have open very soon. I just have to figure a couple things out first so I dont go into debt or anything.

Anyway, this is how my prising is hoping to go:

one flower = $ 10.
six flowers = $ 25.
one dozen flowers = $50
and two dozen = $100

If anyone would like to purchase these or if you have any suggestions or concerns, please feel free to drop me a comment or an e-mail.

Update update update!

Hear ye! Hear ye! I have found a website to sell my products!!!

I am currently in the process of creating my store. I have to figure out how I am going to do this.
Everything will be made to order except for the those will be made to order....I am very excited about this store. And very nervous as well. I need an account to send the money to. I will be getting a Wal-mart card very soon so I am hoping that will suffice. I have two more items to add to my collection.

Fingerless gloves

Okay so mine do not look like that but my trial pair was done in this really ugly camo color and I didnt want that to be my picture.

and my second item..


again, not my photo but I have good reason for it. I am thinking of selling them in different amounts. First in singles. then in half a dozen (in case someone wants to buy 2 different colors), a dozen, and two dozen. These will possibly be my more expencive projects because well, flowers are expencive and these will last forever ^_^

I just need to get this up n running

So, I need advice.

I'm trying to get started on selling my creations and such but its slow going because I cant find a good website that'll sell my stuff for free. I would sell my stuff on etsy but i dont hae even the 60 cents per listing or whatever they charge for rent lol. so if anyone can give me some links to websites or some ideas on what to do it would be greatly appreciated

I can finally breathe a sigh of relief.

My big project is finally completed. Granted its not as perfect as I would have liked but its done.

Woot! New project completed!!!!

So, I was at the mall the other day with my Panda and her friend Montoya. We were browsing through Hot Topic (which is an essential when we're at the mall) and he saw this awesome top hat which was mixed in with the Alice in Wonderland stuff. Its black with like this lacy top thing wrapping it and a black satin ribbon at the base. It looks so cool. And while we were walking around, a thought popped into my head. The mad hatter has that card stuck in his hat. So I thought since I've been crocheting these tapestries, I'd make him one for his hat. I was going to make the traditional white card with the black 10/3 but then I asked him if he wanted anything specific and he decided to spice it up a bit.

So, ta-dah! Here is the finished product:

there is some secret meaning behind the numbers and colors. I can't wait for him to see it!

So, I ran out of black again.

So, I finally finished my little teapot tapestry. I am really beginning to enjoy that I can put something on my wall that I created. Blankets and bags and hats and amigurumi are fine, but you cant really showcase them like you can tapestries.

The quality and lighting is really bad but I think you can tell what they are. If not.....

Its an owl.....

and a teapot ^_^.

I love these little things. They are the perfect size. My "Controller" tapestry is turning out to be huge compared to these little guys. Its going to roughly be poster size, if not bigger. I am extremely proud that I can make things like this. I'm thinking of maybe starting to sell things like this on but im not sure....

Hey there!!! Day 4 of my progress!!

I seem to keep lagging with the updates. I lost my crochet hook for a little while and I finally found it today. So here is my progress as of today. I am finally finished with the controller. Yay me!

I know it has been an entire month and it should be done by now but I am on spring break this week so hopefully I will complete it by the time I have to return to class >.<

I've been floating about the web, looking for cute pictures to turn into crochet projects. I've chosen a few cross stitch patterns, crochet graphs and I even found this site that turns photos into graphs for you, which is cool.

Well, I suppose that's all from the crochet portion of my life....Maybe if I'm lucky it'll spice up soon.
