More Bling.

This weekend I began my sterling silver jewelry line of little monsters!
It was a lot of fun, but only have two done so far...
I will be doing about 52 of them for the Christmas season...and maybe one octopus if I am feeling brave and haven't gone totally mad from busting saw blades. (7 down....)
They won't be ready until after the weekend of the 26th of this month...I need to use some of my Dad's tools to finish them up. I will have some of them available in my shop, as well as craft sales this holiday season. That being said...if you would like to reserve one...let me know!
You can also let me know what colour you would like the heart and whether you would prefer a silver chain or a rubber chord.
If they do well this season, perhaps next year I can branch off to gnomes...

Buttons Buttons everywhere....

I received some more buttons in the mail yesterday and I must admit, I am pretty happy with these ones!  I think that I will stick with brainscan for my future button purchases.
How does one get their hands on these awesome new buttons?  Well, you can't buy them, I give them away....They always come free with purchase online.  Or, if you come sweet talk me at any one of my craft shows I will hook you up...!
(Next craft show is Queen West Arts Crawl...but more on that later...)

Bling Blang

I am not sure if I have mentioned this before, but this winter season I will be launching a line of jewelry based on my monsters.  They will be available in two different forms.

One set will be done using different coloured formica.  They will be nice and vibrant and reflective of the colours used in my sock monsters.  I hope to have some available for the Queen West Arts Crawl which I will be posting about soon.

I will also be doing a limited sterling silver run which I am pretty excited about.

That being said, I spent all day yesterday cutting out little tiny coloured monsters...

My hand hurts.
