shortsweetpea's Profile Picture
Artist | Hobbyist
I've been feeling very...experimental lately. Wink, wink, nudge, nudge, say no more! (monty python references are awesome).

Yes, about the experimenting...I really am into trying new forms of art and have a real curiousity for a wide variety of things. It's the way I am, by nature. I just posted the wire sculptures that I had made today. That was something I've never tried, and it was extremely rewarding! The only setback for me is the cost to buy supplies. Some of the coolest things I've seen cost a fortune to create! My problem is that I have WAY too many interests. I have so many hobbies in general that it's hard to pay them all fair attention, and it's equally as difficult to decide which ones to put my money into! I'd like to buy a really nice telescope, but I'd also like do make some dichroic glass pendants. Glass work and astronomy are both expensive! Which one do I pick!?! This is just the tip of the iceberg! Why do I love so many things? Why am I so darn curioius? Also, why am I so darn poor (I work very hard!). Tis is life.

Maybe I'll try some cheap crafts like papier mache!

Hi! It's been a while, but I'm not dead! On the contrary! There is too much going on at the moment, and I've been a busy bee! I'll be in an art/craft show on August 11th, and I've been prepping all my things. I've never done an official craft show before. I have sold my goods at a large community garage sale (with lots of success), but  that doesn't count. I'm very excited to take part! I've been making lists and going over every detail, and my friend (who I am doing the show with) has been helping me out a lot since he has way more experience! Phew!

In other news, I am moving soon and everything is so disorganized! I hate packing. I just moved into this place in April, and my room mates had told me that they are parting ways at the end of August. Lucky me...moving AGAIN! I would LOVE if I could stay in the same place for a while, get comfortable. I'm always on my toes because life keeps throwing me curve balls. I mean, a LOT of them.

Other than that, things have been well, I am adding some pics of the items I've been working on soon as well for you to check out!

Hey, time for an entry! I've been sort of neglectful of my etsy shop lately. I mean, sure, I do what I need to do and send out orders that people buy...but as far as listing new items, it's been a bit of a dry spell. I also am having some items expire since they didn't sell within the allocated time. SO...I JUST added some new items today. I've been making some pretty cute rings, brooches, earrings and more! I've only added a few things but will be adding more throughout the week! I also am attending a craft show in August. I don't know how well I am going to sell online between now and then, so I am focusing on making enough items so that I have much to go around!

Other than that, I'm thinking about what new things I could try out/try selling. Here's what I am thinking:

-mixed media art
-something (not sure what) that mixes my interest in astronomy into my love for crafts
-cards (possibly with purposely cheesy sayings in them, since I'm super goofy like that)
-dream catchers
-wedding items like fascinators, veils, bouquets, centrepieces etc.

Anyways, not sure yet what to make....but I've tried a lot of these things and know I could do them, it's just a matter of whether or not they would be a good fit for my shop. I guess if I love it, I could do it anyways!

Any thoughts or suggestions on what I should make or add to the shop? I take suggestions seriously and have made some items upon request! So feel free to share :)

That's about it. Other than that, not much going on. Just working at my new job and doing crafts...and feeling a bit bummed out that it's so hard to find a man that I can really connect with these days...(and when you do, they are gay or have girlfriends, or I'm too fat). LOL. *le sigh* so sick of having boyfriends that just aren't supportive (especially of, but not limited to, my creative endeavors). Oh well, gotta work tomorrow to thanks for reading!!! Goodnight!
  • Listening to: the white noise when everything is quiet!

So I got the llamas I needed. Thanks guys :)

Where to begin?! Well, with some of the extra money I made doing the Great Glebe Garage sale, I've bought some more supplies in order to make more items for my next craft show! Hopefully this time will be even better than the last! I've been super busy working on new pieces. I've been experimenting a lot as well. I've also been using components from old or broken jewelry, to make something beautiful again! I call it 're-jeweling'. It's a lot of fun to come up with new things by combining many parts from other things as well as new parts! It's a lot better than it going to a garbage dump instead of using what can be used!

I'm working on a few goodies but don't have any pics to show quite yet! Since the show is in August, I've been trying to use some fall tones, like amber, honey, brown and black. I also have a necklace that is different tones of red, combined with some black beads. I JUST completed another piece today that is nautical and beautiful! Never too late to wear nautical!

I'm hoping to get some photos up by next weekend, but I'm starting a new job (yay!) so will be busy working and creating! I will try to get maybe a couple pics up sooner if I have spare time :D

ALSO, I got new pliers and they are SUPER easy to work with. If you have old pliers that are hard on your hands, I HIGHLY suggest that you invest in a new set.
Dear friends. I've come to realize that I need llamas. Please give them to me. Thanks.

Hey, thanks for the :+fav:s! Also, YOU'RE BACK! I haven't seen hide nor hair of you in several months! How are you?
shortsweetpea Featured By Owner Feb 24, 2013  Hobbyist
Sorry I've been hybernating. I still LOVE your photography. I've been struggling with anxiety and depression a lot. I'm working part time and working on my online jewelry store the rest of the time. I'll try to make an effort more on the online aspect of things. By the way, I think you're super cool! I hope everything is well. What's new as of late?
bowtiephotography Featured By Owner Feb 24, 2013  Hobbyist Photographer
It's all right. I understand how difficult both of those issues can be and had no blame for you being gone on anything particular. I just noticed a bit back that I hadn't seen you pop up and then you were back again! ^_^ Everything is mostly well, I'm mainly still working the Software Development job in TX I was a few months back, although, I think I'm going to find another as I'm not a fan of the management in the area I'm working. I'm still going crazy over new tech (bought a new smartphone outright in December, just got a new tablet and passed the old one to the gf: things like this). But life is still good, although nothing new or exciting.

Also, I think you're super cool as well. Keep on keeping on! :D :dance:

I sent an angel to watch over you last night but it came back.
I asked “why?”
The angel said “angels don't watch over angels.”
Twenty angels are IN your world. Ten of them are sleeping, nine are playing, one is reading this message.
Send this to ten friends including me. I guess if I don't get it back I'm not one of them. As soon as you get five replies, someone you love will quietly surprise you.
Please read, not joking. God has seen you struggling with something. God says its over. A blessing is coming your way.
If you believe in God send this message on. Please don't ignore it. You are being tested. God is going to fix two things BIG tonight in your favor. DROP Everything and pass it on. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. Don't break this chain.
Send to 14 friends in 10 minutes. It's not that hard
