When Life Get’s In the Way, Create!

Sometimes, life just gets in the way, and sometimes life brings to you more creations. In my case, lately, it’s been both. So, I know it’s been a couple weeks since my last entry, and that’s because life just got in my way again. Not complaining though. I mean, at least life got in the way in a positive way. I’ve been out having fun with friends and creating new things. You’ll be seeing some of my new creations here but, as always, there will be lots more to come!

As you can see from the photo above and below, I have FINALLY gotten some scale mail in. What does this mean? Awesome new stuff and an expansion on my creations! Wee!! Below, if you will note, I have been making some scale mail flowers. These will be available as barrettes, necklace pendents (as well as be on some necklaces I make), bracelets, possibly anklets, magnets, pins, and keychains. Have any other idea? Feel free to tell me! I’ll gladly take custom orders of these in different color combinations as well. So keep your eyes open in the shops for new and upcoming pieces in the shop featuring these!

Tomorrow I’ll be going on yet another magical adventure into Cleveland. I’m really looking forward to it and I plan to see some things I haven’t before. It’s amazing how you can live so close to a city most of your life and still see very little of it. I will be documenting my trip in photos (surprise, surprise) and will hopefully have a blast! I love exploring places I’ve never been and finding cool shops. Also, if it EVER stops raining long enough, I would like to start walking in some parks already. I swear, it’s been raining so much here I’ve started to wonder if we’ve been sucked into the world of Twilight and we’re really living in Forks. If we get sunshine, it doesn’t last long. Rain, rain, rain and it’s even more green than usual. Not that I’m complaining. I love how green everything is right now. It’s absolutely beautiful. I’d just like to enjoy it more.

So! What have I been creating lately aside from the scale flowers? Well… let’s see. To start with, I’ve made a lanyard as a commission for a good friend of mine. I will be making more and taking commissions as well as have some up for sale in my shop, with any lucky, by the end of next week. I’ve also made a nice silver basic 4-1 bracelet commission and have also put one up in my shop. I also made a stretchy chainmaille bracelet for myself that I like to call my Rubber Punk Bracelet. I will be posting a few up for sale and will have more colors available as this goes on, as well as ones with glow in the dark stretch rings! Also, I was commissioned to do a Follow the Persian Rabbit necklace. 🙂 Finally, I saw some large ostrich feathers when I was in the craft store last week and instantly thought, “Feather Pens!” So, without further adieu, here are some of my latest creations:

If you see anything you like or have any ideas you’d like me to bring to life for you, and you don’t see them in my shop or want custom colors, just send me an email or message me on etsy and I will be more than happy to do what I can to create a custom piece for you!

Thanks for stopping by today!
