nanopod axon terminal earringsI am completely in love with the artwork of Tosca Hidalg y Teran of Nanopod Hybrid Studio. This Toronto artist makes jewelry and sculpture based on items normally found in science fiction novels and anatomy textbooks, and the results are stunning. All of her work is strange and beautiful, like it comes from some alien landscape or a biology lab of the future. You can check out her work at her Etsy shop, or you can visit her website at http://www.nanopod.tv.

4-inch-xstitch-kit-AWow, it’s been a while since I’ve posted a Project of Doom, I need to keep up!

I’ve made it abundantly clear that I absolutely hate factory-made cross-stitch patterns, so I thought I’d try my hand at making some up for myself! The Craftease Etsy shop will soon be selling DIY Cross-stitch kits, complete with fabric, DMC thread, a needle, and even a vintage hoop for hanging. All of the patterns are designed by yours truly and will feature such weird and wonderful things such as 3-D glasses (pictured), cute zombie animals, meat and organs, just to name a few. All of the patterns are super-simple and can be customized with your own colors. I’m even going to put together a few X-stitch alphabets to give your finished piece a personalized touch. If you’re feeling lazy, I’ll also be selling the finished cross-stitched pieces so you can display all of the cute without doing any of the work.  Be on the lookout for my kits in the next few weeks!

Hey guys, just a little update for you: I’m almost done putting up all of my super-cute cross-stitched pieces in my Etsy store. You should probably go check them out and tell me what you think 🙂 Click on the sidebar marked “Cross Stitchery” to see all the goodness. Stay classy, America – I’m off to dinner.

custom-branding-package-adMoving takes a lot out of a girl. I’ve been in the same apartment for 3 years, and I think I forgot exactly how much preparation is involved with packing up all of your worldly posessions and transferring them to a new house. Between actually finding a place, packing, changing my address in 500 different places, and attempting to get my place back into move-in condition, it’s been a long couple of weeks. Here’s a handy tip for all of you apartment-dwellers: Don’t paint your walls a dark color unless you’re prepared to but a few gallons of white paint and spend the better part of 2 weekends covering it up. 

 

That being said, I’m proud to announce some lew listings in my Etsy shop. I’m now offering custom logo, banner, business card and avatar design for anytone that needs it. If you don’t have an Etsy shop, I can also design banner ads, logos, etc. for any blog or website, all for the low, low price of just $5 each. You can also buy a full branding package and save $5, which is a pretty sweet deal. I’m also planning on listing some new jewelry and vintage stuff very soon, so keep your eyes peeled. Not literally, I mean, that would be pretty disgusting, but you know… hypothetically. That’s all for now, off to Michael’s to buy some gold leaf and glue. Happy weekend!
