Weird Wednesday & Life Update – (Eye)Balls!

After taking a break from blogging to deal with life, I’m back. A little worse for the wear, but I’m here!

First, an update: My aunt passed away Thursday before last, and her memorial is this weekend. It will be held at the location my aunt and her husband were married, and we’re doing a casual potluck. I’m really glad, too, because, like my aunt, I am not a fan of the “wear black and a somber expression” tradition. In the midst of all of this, though, I had to take my mom to the ER for chest pains and shortness of breath. Luckily, I guess, we were already at the hospital for a different test. She was admitted and stayed for four days before being released yesterday. We’re both exhausted, but the hope the doctors and nurses gave her for recovery is fantastic. The doctor was able to manage meds that should have been managed a long time ago by her primary care doc, and she’s already feeling better than she was before she went into the hospital.

Needless to say, we haven’t had time to make much for the etsy shops. I was able to take some pictures of a few little guys that need to be listed today, though! (Etsy’s site is down, so I’m waiting patiently, looking up youtube videos and blog posts …)

A happy family of fuzzy eyeballs!

So far, these googly fuzzballs are being turned into earrings, but I’d like to see what they look like on bracelets and necklaces.

Also, some exciting news! The etsy team we’re involved in, Etsy817, is hosting a holiday craft show called Handmade Holidays this December in Arlington, TX!

Hope you’re all having a stress-free week as summer winds down and all the kids and teachers go back to that crazy thing called school!

Weird Wednesday – We Got JuJu Eyeball

Needless to say, since we’ve opened the new etsy shop, I’ve had “Come Together” by The Beatles playing in my head on repeat! At least I love the song, right?

We’ve been working hard to bring you weird. Mom is working on an amazing hat/fascinator using a doll from the 60’s that will blow your mind – I can’t wait to list it!

Meanwhile, these little ladies are becoming favorites in the shop:


One Eyed Ofelia, Envious Eleanor, and Dismal Delia
These neon skulls are actually stick pins that can be pinned to scarves, hats, lapels, purses and bags, tucked in your hair, or anything else you can stick a pin in!
I’m also working on some sparkling earrings of the creepy crawly variety … bugs like glitter, too, ya know.
We’re really having a lot of fun with this shop, and hope that these items are bringing a smile to your face like they do to ours!

Whatever Weekend – Fancy Hair Wear

Mom has been working her patootie off creating new headbands, hair clips and fascinators! We’ll be listing them throughout the week, so keep your eyes peeled.

Here’s the first in the spring/summer line:

Click the pic to see silly pictures of me wearing this fabulous headband!

This one was inspired by vintage swim caps (and an authentic vintage feather headband Mom used to have.) Each feather is hand curled, and the headband is line with soft black velvet ribbon. You’ll see lots of bright colors and whimsy in our shop within the next week!
