Friday, November 20, 2009 excuse and some work sketches :)

I ditched the craft fair; here is my excuse. :)

My dog ate all my crafts! j/k :)

Actually, I signed up for the fair before I got a full-time job (YAY! Thank you, Lord!). Since working, I haven't crafted at all. The thought of making stuff seriously felt like a chore. :( So...I procrastinated until the weekend of the fair and started to craft like mad.

Here's the product of my labor...

As a result, it just wasn't enough to fill a 5 X 5 space ... :(

Anyway, though I missed out on a potentially great experience, I think this attempt has really inspired me to get back into crafts....hopefully. :) I need to start making things NOW if I ever want to participate in a craft fair next year.

Have a lovely weekend. I now leave you with some sketches I did during work (don't worry...I AM working...I just like to sketch on my notes :))

the craft dilemma.

My long absence is a reflection of my lack of crafting. :( Seriously, aside from a couple of doodles here and there, I have really not done anything creative over the past several months. Nevertheless, the crafting must resume again! Why must it resume??? Well...

Mushroom Meadows is officially going to be at a real life craft fair!!!!!!!!!!!!! It's a first for me!

I'll give the scoop in some subsequent blog entries and hopefully I'll keep you all updated with my preparation for it. Although it's pretty stressful, I think the experience will be fun! :)

elf made brushes...GIVEAWAY!!!

I finally got my package from elf cosmetics! I mainly ordered make-up brushes because while I am unable to fork out the dough for professional brushes, I do prefer brushes over the sponge applicators:

The verdict? They are soooooooo nice!!! The bristles are soft and the handles are sturdy. I really can't believe I got them for about a dollar each (I used a coupon code but they retail for $3 each). I'm going to try to experiment with a couple of them to see whether or not I can use them as paintbrushes (I'll let you know how that goes). Too bad elf doesn't offer paintbrushes too because good paintbrushes are crazy expensive. ;)

That's a lot of brushes, huh? a thank you for all those kind, sweet birthday wishes, I want to do a super short giveaway of one of my eyeshadow brushes from elf!

Leave a comment on this blog post, and I'll select a winner Tuesday, Sept 1st. ;)

Have a great weekend!

the happiest place...

I went to Disneyland for my birthday. I didn't stay very long, but it was kind of nice. It's been nearly a decade since my last visit to the "happiest place on earth". For the most part, it's still very much the same; however, it seems so much smaller now. :) The worst part is that there's a lot more audible cussing amongst the crowd...:(

My sister gave me this for my birthday! I was so pleasantly surprised because she's pretty busy now-a-days with Little Cloud. Plus, it matches my nail polish! ;)

It's a birthday critter. :)

As for my birthday blues, well, I think I'm over them now. My father-in-law told me that 29 was his hardest birthday ever. He said that it's difficult realizing it's the last year you'll be in your 20s, but he assured me that once you turn 30, you get a fresh, new start again. hahaha :D
