Leafy Headband

I love hair accessories. I don't love how they tend to mostly be flowers. So I'm always on the lookout for colorful hair accessories that aren't flowers. The idea for the headband was something I mulled over for quite a while before finally settling on a plan of action. A friend gave me a small piece of fabric that I ADORED and I wanted to use for something fantastic. So I put this together.

I kinda rock at taking pictures of myself right?

Luckily I took a couple of other pictures of my masterpiece, along with my snazzy vintage suitcase!

Don't you just love it? The one I'm wearing is MINE, all mine, but the other pictures are of one that I'm selling at my brand new Etsy shop! Click here to check it out, and here to check out a similar headband in grays.

Introducing Scotty Morgan!!!

I just opened my brand new Etsy shop, Scotty Morgan! I would LOVE any kind of feedback about any aspect, especially product photos, my shop banner, and pricing! Enjoy!

Hello Again

Another day, another vow to blog more often.

Anyway here is what is going on in my life.

1. Brave - Went to see it with Steven. Loved it. Not a typical Pixar wower, but a cute story with more than adequate Celtic heritage pride. Which is of course why I'll probably be buying the movie and listening to the soundtrack on Spotify for the next few months. 

2. The Hunger Games - Book not the movie. Had to request it from the library, but got it the day after said request was put in. Hopefully the same will happen with book two because I SEE WHAT ALL THE FUSS WAS ABOUT. AAAAMMMMMMAAAAZZZZZINNNNGGG book. And I'm glad I read it after the movie came out, because though I haven't seen it I HAVE seen plenty of promotional photos so I read the book with the cast of the movie as the cast in my head. So everything should match up well when I see it. I did the same with Harry Potter and I think it was a good move. Also VERY grateful for one important spoiler without which I would have been bawling all night.

3. Minecraft - Got the xbox version for my birthday, playing lots of it. This may be the first video game I 100%. If I can find a freaking saddle.

4. Wardrobe - If I'm not careful I may end up with a pair of skinny jeans in every color of the rainbow. I only have brick and gold so far, but pinot will join them sometime next week. Also LOVE all the stuff I got from the Dressing Your Truth store with my birthday money!

5. Crafting - Vest is almost done. If I could just find my book where it shows how to knit buttonholes the way I like... Hair clips. If I was cool I'd post a picture. Basically ribbon and fancy bobby pins. I really should post a picture... Headbands!!! These I REALLY should post a picture of, so I've decided that my next blog will just be pictures of all the cool stuff I've made lately. 

6. Job - No headway on a regular 9-5. Applied for practically every business in a 15 mile radius. Got into a rut with working for my mom again. It's not that I hate editing videos, so I don't know what my problem is. ETSY. Bleh. I've got neat stuff to sell, it's just my whole love/hate relationship with photography in general. I really need to get over that. And since APPARENTLY I have high blood pressure disease (must be all that alcohol and cigars that I haven't had) , I haven't been able to donate plasma. And it HAD been going SO WELL. :( 

That's all for today! Over the next few days I hope to post a blog about that craft stuff, and one with a semi-big announcement about a goal for my future. (A GOAL people, so NO, I'm NOT PREGNANT!)

Icky Sicky

I've been sick all week. You would think that wasn't a good enough excuse to not blog, but it is a HEAD cold... I'm sick in the head! I haven't felt up to work, except for one day when I made a bunch of stuff I hope to sell on Etsy. I haven't felt up to cleaning, and now the kitchen smells like rotting food. All I've really felt up to doing is watching Netflix and knitting a vest that I will hopefully debut sometime next week! Also I'm hoping to iron things out on Etsy so that my shop, Scotty Morgan, can debut next week as well!
