Etsy Re-Stock!

So in the last month I kinda went through a crafting crisis. The main craft show I apply for turned me down :( I thought to myself HOW will I have motivation to do anything if this one craft show doesn't think my work is any good....and then I thought...I don't need this craft show to determine how I feel about my crafting. I know I am much better than alot of those other people that got accepted. So I decided to show the world and myself that I can still sell crafts without doing this craft show. I decided to stock up my etsy store and come up with a couple more designs to list on there. So over the last few weeks I have been sewing like crazy when I'm not work two jobs haha. Anyways if you have a minute to stop over to check it out...give me some feedback or maybe buy something awesome please do! www.whoopdedoo5.etsy.com "Whoopdedoo Crafts"!

Life Update!

Wow! has it really been since Nov. since I have wrote on here! I can't believe it! So new things in my life would be

a.) Boyfriend moved in
b.) new tattoo
c.) craft show season starting
d.) started a 2nd job AND a 3rd job!

So since thanksgiving I've just been just mainly working my butt off! I celebrating Christmas well technically had 4 Christmas's. Me and Cale (bf) celebrated our 1 year anniversary in Jan. This month (march) he moved in with me which made the most financial sense at this point, since he was pretty much staying with me anyways. This will help us save and possible start looking for a house.

I've also expanded my sewing machine tattoo with a half sleeve of sewing items...which I LOVE! It turned out fabulous and I am very excited about it! I also have been crafting away with plenty of new designs and ideas and have entered my first craft show of the season for April. I will start posting new pictures of those once I get them all listed on etsy!

I also started doing respite for a 7 year old girl named Anna. She is the best girl ever and I looove hanging out with her, so its not really "work". I also started working at a place called drive line to help do some merchandising with a friend a couple times a month. Anyways thats about for me right now so I will upload some pictures to keep you all updated!! :)

Sister Tattoo!!

So as me and my sister were growing up I always had an obsession with polar bears and she with giraffes! So for each holiday we would get each other our fav animals! So I thought it be appropriate to honor our "sisterhood" with a tattoo! :)

My sister Audry and Me (adria)!

My sewing Mojo...

So ya...kinda funny actually that after I get a huge tattoo of a vintage sewing machine I loose my sewing mojo. I actually felt guilty looking at it day after day and put it away in my closet! so sad. But finally yesterday had a moment where I felt motivated and ready to go. I started working on a T-shirt quilt for a friend that had ordered it over the summer and I never got around to it. But since I am planning a trip (hopefully) next month I could use the extra cash! Once I started going on that I realized that I have a huge 2 day craft show coming up and I better get motivated! So I finished up 2 purses that have been sitting around and then got to work on about 25 reversable headbands and 20 doggie bananas! I still have 3 more purses to sew and I really need to finish up that quilt (after I buy more interfacing). So it looks like this is weekend will be a crafty one indeed! I feel so much better when I am creating new projects! Anyone else ever lost there mojo for a while?

Here are the two purses I finished up!

Yup I Did It!!

I've really been wanting a tattoo for years...never knowing what to quite get. One day it came to me that I should get a sewing machine...so I found an amazing tattoo artist and starting discussing my tattoo. I knew it would be my first piece and I thought that if I got a tattoo I wanted to go all out and get a large piece. Yes it is addicting and I do plan to do a half sleeve of all sewing related things! It took 5 hours and man was it painful! haha! Smiley
