Finally...

After restarting this scarf THREE times I am finally done with it. It's curled up like cheap bacon at the moment, so I won't post a photo of it yet. I'm going to steam block it and then we'll see what it looks like.

I also made two more Harry Potter potion necklaces.


The Phoenix Tears necklace is for my mom and the Amortentia is just for sale.

I have to get more supplies if I am to make more, I have one chain left, so I'll have to get more. I'll probably be heading to Oshkosh next week sometime, so I'll be able to get more chains and charms.

I forgot to take a photo of my mom's friend's neck warmer I made, so here it is a little late!



Perty, huh?

Anyway, I just wanted to update ya'll.

Have a good Christmas.

Full of Sparkles...

So! I said I'd get those pictures up of the fabrics, so here they are:

They are all from St. Vincent de Paul, all varying prices. $.75 - $2.00




And now, to introduce my other niece, Aubrey JoAnn!
Isn't she so precious?


I am starting a new adventure. I'm hoping it's a good one. I've started to make Harry Potter potion necklaces. I've made six so far....

(From the left.)
1. "Acromantula Venom" with spider charm.
2. "Basilisk Venom" with snake charm.
3. "Peruvian Instant Darkness Powder" with star charm.
4. "Dragon Blood" with dragon charm.
5. "Unicorn Blood" with star charm.
6. "Felix Felicis" with a horse shoe charm.

I am selling these for $10 each plus shipping.

There are other "potions" available too. I can make custom orders. Any color, with or without glitter. Or anything you want the label to read; such as "Poison" or "Fairy Dust" just let me know what you would like. It doesn't have to be Harry Potter related.

  1. Acromantula Venom
  2. Basilisk Venom
  3. Peruvian Instant Darkness Powder
  4. Dragon Blood
  5. Unicorn Blood
  6. Felix Felicis
  7. Pumpkin Juice
  8. Wolfsbane Potion
  9. Amortentia
  10. Veritaserum
  11. Living Death
  12. Polyjuice Potion
  13. Basilisk Blood
  14. Butterbeer
  15. Sleeping Draught
  16. Phoenix Tears
  17. Elixir of Life
  18. Flesh Eating Slug Repellent
  19. Mandrake Draught
I like how they turned out so far, how about you? The only downside to making these is the glitter. I have it everywhere.. Ugh! But at least they look pretty sweet.

They make great stocking stuffers for any PotterHead!

Been A While

Jeesh, it's been quite a while since I've updated.

Let me start off by saying I AM NOW A COLLEGE GRADUATE! YIPPEE!!! I can now get a *real* job.

Let's see, I haven't thrifted too much lately. Been working on getting done with school.

I think the last thing I thrifted was like a red cardigan frocky thing. (Photos to follow.)


Looks sorta dorky on the hanger and probably is dorky looking on me, but it's comfy.


This is another thing I thrifted for $.29.

A teeny tiny sewing machine.
I've mostly been just working and focusing on school. Now all I have to do is buy review books and take my state licensing test and I will get a job. Woo for real life, right?

Anyway, I'm knitting more. I made two neckwarmers for people for Christmas. I only have photos of one because well, I'm sorta dumb and forgot to take pictures of the other one.






The other one is baby blue and ribbed. Super pretty.

Otherwise I've been working on my Christmas Scarf. Here. I had to frog it twice and I ended up making it super wide when I started over. It's taking forever and I hate it.

I'm currently reading Stiff by Mary Roach, it's an excellent book. Give it a go if it looks like something you'd enjoy.

Also, I just want to share teh cutes; that owl hat I made for Chase? He finally got it.



Isn't he adorable?


Anyway, hopefully more thrifting is in my future. Oh I forgot, I bought some material too, but I'll have to post that tomorrow night. I have to get to bed since I have to be up at 5:15-5:30am.

G'night yall.

So So So Busy!!!!!

Oh my god! I have been so busy, it's not even funny. Work is hell because it's the Hellidays. So working at a department store, you pretty much just get raped every night. How fun. Also, I'm in my last semester of school and my last class of school so I've been trying to get that all done. The 14th is my last day for school (hopefully FOREVER, so hopefully after that I'll be around a lot more. I haven't done much in the way of photography or thrifting. I mostly have been knitting lately. Gotta get them Christmas presents done, you know. Other than that, not much has been going on. One of my bffs had her baby this past week. yay!! A healthy baby girl.

I just wanted to update everyone who actually cares about where I've been as of late.
