Whatever next!

WTF?



This weirdness has to be some sort of fetish thing right? Let's all inject jelly into foam bums together!

I have to say the general confusion in the comments made me die laughing.

I should know better

Ugh. I stink.

I got a free sample of the Nicki Minaj perfume The Pinkprint today whether I wanted it or not (thanks Superdrug, for nothing) and foolishly I thought would try it out as it didn't smell that bad on the card, but it's developed into something cloying and horrible on my skin and now I can't get rid of it no matter how many times I scrub.

Make the pink, sweet vileness go away!

Adventures in Semi-Successful Jewellery Making

I seem to have missed all the friending fun as in the last couple of weeks I have been incredibly busy with preparations for a friend at work's wedding. Thankfully, that is now over and I can make a post too.

I want to get back to making more useless stuff and I have done a couple of things. I have always tinkered with jewllery, necklaces particularly as I don't have my ears pierced after the one I did get pierced went horribly crusty and bleugh, remaking them into new things as they fall apart. I can't resist a charity shop with a broken jewellery lucky dip! (I have a lot of beads for someone who doesn't like bead jewellery). My tastes tend towards the gothic, obvs.

The first things I made recently was a 1980s Siouxsie Sioux bracelet. It goes more or less from one end of the decade to the other:

PiccyCollapse )

It keeps breaking as the moon charm on the end is a bit too heavy, but its there to keep the bracelet on top of the wrist. I should probably replace it with a Star of David really, but as I am not Jewish that felt a bit inappropriate.

Why a Siouxsie bracelet? Well, why not! I was originally going to make a classic movie monsters bracelet, but then I decided there wasn't enough women, so I thought scream queens! But those are too much like victims. The next thought was Barbara Steele in Black Sunday, which then made me think of Sioux and then it was obvious what I was making. I have one more kit like this. I have no idea what to put in it yet. Barbara Steele might yet have her day.

Then on Sunday, I started on a bat necklace of ginormous proportions (9"/23cm)! it is based on this tutorial here, with some tweaks.

I really don't know where I would ever wear it or what with. I don't even think it would survive if I did. It is made of polymer clay and although it is quite thick it is still a bit bendy after an hour in the oven. I think its destiny is as a decoration.

Next up is a raven necklace like this but there won't be any pink on my bird. I will try to make it a reasonable size this time. I like these tutorials, they are very do-able by the sort of competent (unlike this amazing piece).

Halloween Advent Update

I have being meaning to post this for awhile, but when I remember to actually do it, the time is a bit late and I have to go to bed.

Anyway, the Halloween Advent Calendar now as a roof! And is black (and grey).

Piccys!Collapse )

In other news, I have a Mr Scattybones bag and you don't! :) (this will be meaningless for anyone not following sb_fag_ends. This is a ghostly cat of my own design)

Happy Christmas!

I hope everyone had a very Happy Christmas.

Mine was good, despite the arguements with my mother and the boredom.

A Halloween Advent Calendar

So YouTube is the devil. You knew that.

If you need proof, in the last year or so, I have become a bit addicted to YouTube craft tutorials and stemming from this, I have a number of aborted half-finished projects to my name that I thought were a good idea at the time.

The latest then is a wooden Halloween Advent Calendar which I didn’t realise was missing from my life until I saw this (when it was on Etsy and I too gulped at the price). No worries, I thought seemingly like many others, I can just make my own! Though not as fancy, obviously.

So I got a wooden advent calendar from Hobbycraft and told my dad what I was doing in the hope he would suggest a way of adding another six boxes to take it from 25 to 31 for October. He volunteered to make some… and then to extend the roof. And then he got really into it and dreamt up a sloping roof and a bell tower… no, a clock tower… no, a clock tower with a steeple (he made all these versions, usually without telling me first) and then fitted a board for a background and lights (we are yet to choose the constellation). He’s even ordered a dollhouse weathervane (which is going to have a witch on it). Whose project was this again?

Back from WriterconUK

All home and very tired right now - lugging a ton of stuff up the stairs didn't help.

I think my cat actually  missed me...!

Nom Nom er Meme

Thanks to whomever it was that nominated Sucker for the SunnyD and Wicked awards. Someone appreciates a little tentacle tickle.

I have also committed memery:

You Are a Creative

Like everyone else, you have a to-do list... but you don't always prioritize getting around to it.
You are productive as your spirit moves you to be. Sometimes this means crossing off a lot of items on your list, but other times it means doing something else entirely.

You do best when inspiration strikes, and it's hard to predict when that will be. You thrive with flexibility.
Interruptions tend to distract you, but sometimes they are a welcome distraction. You do best when you focus on short term goals.





Ha ha ha ha ha. That is so true.
