Know what I can't stand? When people way underbid things. You want me to spend $3.50 on a skein of yarn and spend hours making you something, but you only want to pay $10? Are you kidding me? Is my time worth nothing? I understand that some people don't realize how much time goes into knitting or crocheting. But the people who bid on these items do! You're hurting all of us when you bid on items for such low sums. Now, I'm not saying to overbid either, but there is a happy medium. But when you bid for such low amounts, you're hurting us all. I can't afford to spend hours making something to make less than $7 in profit on it after all the fees that I get charged via Etsy and PayPal. I'm sorry. Do us all a favor, when they're that ridiculously low, ignore them. Maybe people will get the clue. If you want something that cheap, go to Walmart. If you want quality, handmade items, you need to be willing to pay a little more. No one wins when you sell your handmade items at store prices. The stores sell so many that they can get supplies cheaper and offer them lower. We can't. So please, think about what you're really doing before you bid on those insanely low ads.

Weekend Work

I had a relatively productive weekend. I finished another pair of arm warmers

and this Halloween wreath.I really like how the wreath turned out. I saw the crow and just knew exactly what I wanted to do... but my favorite part has to be the spiders crawling up it.

The arm warmers and the wreath are for sale at

Vampire Diaries

I watched the first episode of The Vampire Diaries yesterday. It was... ok. Now, don't get me wrong, i LOVE vampire stuff. I read The Vampire Diaries way back in the early 90s when they were still 4 separate books. Actually, I read ALL of L. J. Smiths books then. So, what really struck me was according to the books... Elena doesn't have a brother... she has a sister who's a toddler. She's blonde (I'm 90% sure anyway), not brunette. Bonnie is Irish with the pale skin and red hair that goes with it. And seriously? Stephan and Damon are supposed to be equally hot. Ian Somerhalder (Damon) is soooo much more attractive than Stephan in this.

I know that they always take liberties when changing books to movies... but it always bugs me. Anyway, rant over. I'll probably continue to watch it (even though, like True Blood, I know the plot from reading the novels).

Busy busy busy

It's been a while since I've blogged. Sorry. I've been busy between work, school, and crafting! I have a month and a half left of esthetician school... then I can get my license! Yay!

As for crafting, I've got lots of new items up. I made some bath salts over the weekend, that are for sale in my shop.

These are some new earrings that I made and love. They remind me of the sea. I also added a pair of wrist warmers that will be perfect for keeping warm in the winter.

See? I told you I've been busy. That's it for now, but everything's available in my shop, so make sure to check it out! Also, if you haven't yet, please fan me on facebook... I need 41 more people to get a shorter link!
