It shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone who has visited my blog throughout the years, but I have a lot of pictures for this post. They’re pictures I haven’t posted due to my lack of posting in general. I figured it would be a good time to post them since I don’t really have much news. Well I do, but I will explain with the pictures.
One thing I won’t be able to talk about with pictures is the fact that by the end of May I’ll have enough money saved up to enroll in a culinary arts program that has a main focus on catering! I know it’s not much, but at least with that I’ll be able to prove I know what I’m doing. ^_^
Sad pirate isn’t really a new tattoo. I got it at the end of February. I found the artwork when I was looking online just at random. I wasn’t set on finding something for a tattoo. I am so glad I came across the artist though. He has so many amazing pieces.
In May or June I’m getting another pirate on my left leg. I’m super excited for it.
So, for those who remember when I got Carrie – she was TINY. Now she isn’t really that tiny any more.
In this picture Carrie is wearing one of the dog scarves I made. I sold a couple, I really need to make some more. I even bought a button press that puts buttons on clothing. Best money I ever spent because now I can add buttons to everything I make.
Cupcake is now my mom’s dog. My brother got her but ended up having to move to a house he couldn’t keep her. So this led to my mom saying she would keep her. She’s a few months older than Carrie.
My little ball of fur is now 8 months old already! He’s still growing too and is taking after his dad (a Maine coon). He loves water, but will only drink if the water is moving – leading me to looking into a “fountain” for him. When I’m home he just wants to lay around with me.
The only bad things with him is his weird habit. Which I looked up and I guess a lot of cats do it – most of them do it because of a feeling of calm. He kneads and sucks on my blanket. He only does it when I’m sitting on my bed & he only does it with my one blanket.
I’ve changed my Etsy name and shop.
Right now I only have keychains, earrings and a few necklaces up. I’m working on getting all the necklaces up.
I’m also making vegan lip balm, bath salt and lotion bars. My lip balm is going to be the first of my bath/beauty products that will be in my shop. I ordered stickers for the lids of the containers, I’m just waiting for them to come in the mail. I’m really excited about making the bath items. I think it’s an easy way to get people to try vegan products.
Tuesday I’m going to go pick up some new scents for lip balm (as well as everything else).
Macaroni salad (vegan mayo, brown mustard, tomatoes, onions & cucumber), Smashed Red Potatoes (red potatoes, garlic powder, pepper, sunflower oil), Country Fried Beefless Tips (Gardein beefless tips, flour, soy milk, onion powder, garlic powder, paprika, cayenne pepper, ground sage)
