Holy crap, I just sewed a gown!

*knock, knock, knock* “Heather?”

Yes. I’m alive. Please know I haven’t forgotten about you little bloggy blog of mine! It has been quite some time and in between work-outs, trying to keep up with my shop, working and trying to keep my social life at least a little bit afloat, I’ve spent the remainder of my time asleep. And these hours are very few and far between. So weekends, the free moments I have, oh you better believe I am snug in my bed, blissfully napping.

Unfortunately, I’ve forgotten that days only have 24 hours in them and have had none left over to just sit. I miss sitting. And staring off into oblivion. And it’s my favorite time of year to do so… I need to find time to do that. Outside in a pair of jeans, a warm sweater, a hot cider and my thoughts. Doesn’t that sound glorious?

But I’m glad to get a chance and touch base with my blogging world. I feel like we need to sit down on a cafe terrace, sip lattes and talk about the weather, our families and Bethenny Frankle’s new talk show (God she’s hysterical, I adore her) and Tamra Judge’s wedding (GORGEOUS!).

In the meantime, let me share my biggest feat to date… or at least what feels like it to me.

I sewed a gown.

*pause for reaction*

Yes, I said gown. Remember last year’s Comic Con that I slacked and never put up pictures from like I promised? Yeah, so that happened again. But the shirt wasn’t enough this year, I had to kick it up a notch. So to Cosplay City we went. I did. I cosplayed. I wore a costume. And walked around downtown Baltimore. Like the ridiculously awesome fool I am. That happened. This is real life right here.

Join me on my sewing adventure.

DIY: Glitter Ornaments – Mixing Glitter

Well hello sweetie, fancy meeting you here.

Little different, eh? I’ve changed my name, after all, what do I blog about more than glitter? Well besides Doctor Who (in which this post will contain both!)… wibbly wobbly bloggy woggy. The layout is not agreeing with me, so that must remain the same… for now.

I felt it was only fitting that with the revamping of my personal life, my blog should get an overhaul as well. The revamping is not done, as is the life of a crafter, but a work in progress.

Anyhoo, the Christmas holiday is just around the corner now! Can you believe Thanksgiving is next week? Before Halloween I was playing with glitter ornaments (remember this post?) and decided to play around with mixing the glitter. My sister made some Star Wars ornaments for my brothers birthday this year and it inspired me to make another TARDIS ornament, this time, in space. I wanted the space effect to have a Van Gogh feel to it so I decided to mix a little black and blue glitter… have a look!
