new spaces

Besides working on my new work space in my house I have also been working on a new website that will hopefully be better then just a flicker for showing what I am working on and what I have made and is already out in the world. I started making a site with the help of moonfruit.com it is a really user friendly website designer that is easily customizable to your own needs. I am having a lot of fun working with it to make my new site, So this is what I have done so far and it will just get better!

Custome Holidays

In general when I am giving a gift to some one I know I like to make it personal and something that they would use and like. When I can I will try and make it but this year for the holidays I seem to have found myself making things for others to give instead, this is something new to me that I have been working on since I started my etsy shop making things with out knowing the person that it is going to. So since it is before the holidays I ant really talk about what I am working on because then it would ruin the presents for the people getting them but I will be posting about them after xmas!

As for the decorating how-to's that I talked about in my last post they are coming sorry that it is taking so long but I am having some problems with furture/ getting things out of boxes but the decorating will start soon. So keep and eye out they will be coming soon!!

Sorry that I haven't posted anything in a while but we were remodeling our basement which is where my work space normally is so I haven't been able to do much/find anything but as soon as the carpet goes down tomorrow I am going to be working heard to find all my things to get work done. As I am going to be resetting up my work space I am going to post how-to's to some of my crafty ways of decorating and maybe also some of the other things that I am working on.

Also back in October me and my friend Casey had a booth at the Bellmore Street fair and as soon as I find the charger to my point and shoot camera I will post all about it.

Tripping Over Life

Some times life just gets in the way of doing the things you want to do, I am sorry to any one who is reading this that I have not posted anything in a while but a combination of working on my Thesises and other things going on in my life I have not been able to create anything that was not for school. You may ask why I just didn't post things about my thesises and projects but for my thesises I can not post my films if I ever want to put them in film festivals I can not post them on the internet. But what I can give you is photos of the different steps of my puppets that I made for my Stop motion final (whitch is the last project I handed in for my undergrad!)

Hand Made With Love

So when ever it is a friends birthday or holiday that involves gift giving I always try to make something personal and special for them because I think that if i just get them something just to get them something its point less because they won't like it and will just throw it out. There are just a few key things to think of in order to give a gift that is actually thoughtful and will be an amazing present.

first just Observe- this is mostly just listening to what they say, they like what they think of, what they use, what they wear just knowing there personality. Then when you go to think about what to get them will come to you naturally.

Second- Don't think that some thing is too simple some thing that is used in everyday if you just make it a little special and just for them will go a long way.

Third- It doesn't need to be perfect if there is thought behind a gift then that will just gloss over the imperfections. 

I just wanted to write about this today because I have been working on a gift for my friend today I wish I could post Some pictures of it but I will not be giving it to her for another couple of days but just put thought behind your actions and it will go along way!

Inspiration Block

So today I needed to get my first project done for my Stop motion animation and I was defiantly having a problem getting inspired to get this done so I tried to do some other work hoping for something to hit me, nothing did and I needed to get started on it so I started cleaning my room hoping in the process of cleaning I would find some thing that I could animate for this project. Then I finally found it a heart shaped post it pad, so here is the end result.

Every one needs a little love

So I have never had anything like a relationship because that would require some one actually showing some kind of interest in me which has never happened, So Valentines Day has always been just another day to me. But as I get older and my friends have relationships and things like that it does get me thinking. So while I am single and have no one to love there are plenty of people who are in love so I made an album today that I am selling in my Etsy shop for some one else to fill with there love.

lazy day

So I am trying to post something every day because I think if I don't I will eventually get lazy and just stop and it is also a reminder to my self to make something every day. So today I have been fighting with what to do for my stop motion class which I still haven't liked anything that I have made yet so I thought that I would post pictures of some thing that I had already made. This is something that is for sale in my Etsy Shop.

true to the title

So in a effort to improve my Etsy shop I made a note on facebook to get my friends opinions and one of my friends actually asked me to make her something. I didn't exactly know how to make what she wanted I had an idea but I had never made something like it but with in a couple of hours not only did I figure out how to make it but I finished it. There was no rush on it or anything I just did it. so here is the hand made binder that I made for my friend and will soon be in the mail.

verbally challanged

Yeah, So I have never been that good at writing so this Blog will probably consist of mostly of Images either photos that I have taken to things that I am working on. I have resisted creating a blog until this point because of this reason, the idea of a blog always brought back bad memories of being forced to keep a journal when I was little as a part of various teachers trying to help me improve my writing. So I guess I have decided to face my fears and give this a try.
