something weird happened to my skull listing on etsy- it disapeared not even the etsy guy could find it. EDIT: i deleted it! then the etsy guy put it back up for me and told be to be more careful next time SOOOO SWEET naman yung mga taga etsy shet! BACK TO ORIGINAL POST:crazy! then i thought i lost the real pair here at home. turned up under the beading tray angela gave me. god angela is awsome she gave me 3 new tools! they are soooo much better than the ghetto tools she lent me at first. now i have new tools for free! i love my friends
'-'

these are me faves,,,i copied mine coz i think they are HOT
EDIT i took these ones out im going to add jump rings between the flower and actual ear hook. angela claims to have rolled around the ground* and slept in a pair and they fell off ;; mine are fine tho but angj is the official earring tester coz shes so rowdy.


i have more but i didnt list em coz my shop is getting so full ;;

meanwhile i think i forgot the black linen fabric i bought for the custom owl tote order for lilyqueen- gaaa. damn
it must be in the fabric shop-pleeese i hope so, coz i cant afford to buy it again- literally EDIT: i never found it- luke closed my bag at the shop so it couldve been open for a long time... so day later i went back to get some more fabric and the dude gave it me for free! how wicked. i had given my two squishy pins i was wearing to these kids and mom on the bus- had nothing for him but he gave me something- kind of like etsy's PIF but real.
here is the extra large tote i got jipped on shipping for coz its so exceeding regular post size and weight ie. its wonderfully nice and roomy:

i took some note card sets and gift paper ornaments which ill be including in my etsy shop orders along with the free pins from gadgetgirl... some of the discount cards ill be putting in shop cocoon :)
the extravaganza was great... groovyglassgirl (poppy) and gadgetgirl (cheryl the organizer) are awsome and so sweet. hopefully more events this summer in the sun! the rain killed it today and not in the hipster sense killed it :P ;; :(
need to make more cards. i have no cards at all and ive dismantled my first stamp so ill have to make another.

eric hood is back from iceland and hes making sushi tonight... spose to meet up with them kids at 10 but forgot angela and i had a craft date tho havent gotten in touch. its her last night in the building! she is moving to an insane loft building down the road so itll be good for visits :)

edit later at 11: well, i called angela earlier and she was at jasons coz she didnt want to spend another minute with her crappy roomate- then i called eric and got all ready. on my bike, down the street and im like eh. i have to go home now, so i called, apologized and here i am confessing. have a shift tomorrow at shop cocoon-some bussiness cards need to be made. or the stamp at least.
