I’ll start with the sad news first. The little orphan kitten I’ve been taking care of died Tuesday night. I cried about it and the other cats were looking for him. He was buried with his dragon blanket and stuffed penguin. 🙁 This is the last picture I took of him. He spent the day laying on my bed sleeping with Booger. At least Pip is with his two sisters now.
The 5th to the 7th I was sitting at Midvale Miners Festival. There was a mine in Midvale so they started having a festival based around there. Honestly I won’t be going next year because the festival isn’t that well put together.
Saturday (the 6th) was family day. My niece was with us and she couldn’t play any of the games because the kids had to be 4 years old. Not only that but they said they had goodie bags for all the kids, when my niece and I walked over to get her one they were out.
They had a hula hoop contest for the older kids, I had no problem with that…but the music they played was not right for family day or children at all. It was club music! And one of the songs has cursing in it – don’t get me wrong I curse like a sailor but I don’t do it in front of children.
At least the sunset was nice on “family day”.
Sunday (the 7th) was the day I had been waiting for – the car show!
Even the car show didn’t make sense they had all the field behind the baseball diamonds that they could use, but they parked the cars so there were four short rows (four to five cars per row). Once that small area was full they started using the field behind the baseball diamonds. To me it would have made more sense to do it the other way around.
Even though they had no clue what they were doing, there were some nice cars there. Though I do get upset with they allow new cars in the show, sorry – car shows are for those classic cars not new pieces of plastic.
I was extremely happy when the weekend was over. It was a long weekend and all I wanted to do was relax and sleep.
I did make enough money to have some and spend a little.
So I ended up buying Christmas gifts – I’m done Christmas shopping! Well I mean unless I find something random at a store.
After that I bought myself a short black wig – I can’t wait to have it and wear it. I also finally bought glasses- ugh. Oh and a chest binder! I can pitch the one that’s falling apart and have this new one I ordered. I just hope I ordered it in white, I can’t remember what color I ordered. haha.
One of my favorite bands have a new album coming out next month. So to celebrate I ordered a new t-shirt. It’s with their main logo on it too, so I’m excited. Also it shouldn’t be so big because it’s a fitted shirt, but I know it’s going to be a little big. Either way I’m going to wear it SO much. ^_^
With the big festival coming up the first weekend in October I’ve been mainly trying to do what hand sewing I can – I just don’t feel like getting my sewing machine out this week since I won’t have a lot of time to just sit at it and sew.
This is a new thing I’m making. It’s a journal/notebook pen holder. It’s a pocket of fabric on a piece of elastic. The elastic slips over your notebook and you can put pens in the pocket. I thought it was a super great idea and well I’m pretty sure I’ll be keeping one for myself…I broke the clip on my pen last night. I think I have around 20 or 30 of these cut out and just need finished. I’m thinking the price will be around $2 or $3. How much would you pay for something like this? I thought about $1, but there is a lot of work that goes into them even though they look so simple.
These are fun to make. They’re crayon & paper booklets! It’s two pieces of felt sewn together. The inside has slots to hold four crayons, and there’s a slot to hold paper. The closure is a piece of velcro. I’m going to sell them with a good amount of paper in them. I think the price point on these will be $2.
Anything for children I don’t like pricing it high because I know when I was a kid I was given an amount of money for festivals and such. So making something marketed toward kids and pricing it at $20….that’s just not right. Or at least in my heart it’s not right.
I have four of the booklets cut out. I’m going to buy enough felt to make 10 or so. I can get one booklet out of one piece of felt.
Oh yeah! Tuesday I went to a quarter sale! Yes, everything was 25 cents!
I found a new “leather” jacket for myself. It’s not the same style my old one is but I’ll still wear it. It doesn’t have holes like my old one. Haha.
I bought this shirt and I can’t wait to wear it when I have my chest binder and new wig. ^_^
And I know I’ve been slacking on returning comments, but last week was just so crazy with the festival at the end of the week and everything. I’m hoping to have time to really sit down and return comments this weekend.
For now though I’m going to finish eating my pizza…which is like flat bread with a huge pile of stuff just in the middle…so 90% of it is crust. My niece made it. haha.
Also, if you have instagram – I’m finally on there! I know it took me forever but at least I finally made it – StupidEyed.
