Crochet connoisseur Rin aka deadcraft aka oddgumi makes wonderful dolls of personalities both fictional and real, as long as they're awesome. I am confident that a Barney Stinson doll is in the works. Let's look at some her creations:Now that's something you don't see everyday. Jamie looks kinda creepy though. Adam's spot on, but I still like Lolcat Adam better. You can get the myth busting dolls for $46 (USD) at Rin's Etsy shop.Forget what I said about Jamie. That is creepy. Yet still awesome. Should you want to scare the hell out of anyone, you can buy the Heath Ledger Joker doll for $24, also at Rin's Etsy shop."War has changed. War has become routine. And for some reason I know nothing about what's going on and always have to be informed by Otacon and everyone else around me." So says Old Snake, who for some reason seems to be carrying saus…

$2.00 Tank Tops for Women Today Only!

Image
I posted this because if you are looking for tanks and are on a serious budget (like alot of folx) you will love the $2.00 Tanks today. Limit 5.

Even if you don't care for Old Navy, you will enjoy the savings today! I usually try and purchase my clothing thru thrift shoppes, or Ross, TJ Maxx, Marshals (where I do find Organic Clothing discounted!)..

But sometimes I do find something at Old Navy. I love their Docker style Big Bell khaki's (I got a few of them for $4.97 each!) And yes I am saving money and all that jazz, but also I will wear them till they fall apart, and then try and use them for a craft project or donate them!

I don't buy alot of clothing anymore, since I am trying to just keep it simple, but do like a few basics in my wardrobe, such as the tanks (remember I am from Florida and moving back and we need tanks like ya all need water this time of year!).

I don't actually have alot of clothes anymore.. Just some really niceilicous tops, and a few pair of my fav…

Creative Weekend Ahead

What plans do you have this weekend? Basking in the sun? Reading a good book? Sipping Organic Lemonade????
Well since I am in Cool and Crisp Ventura, Cali and it doesn't feel or look like Summer right now I am going to do some fun Creative stuff instead of my pool/beach bum time!
My loose plan (after all a Creative weekend requires little planning!) is to Go to The Yarn Store in Ventura that is having a open house, it is their annual event for many years being open! So I will sniff out some good dealz and check out what they have in the arena of Organic!
Then hang out at the Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf in Ventura, have some of their Summer tea and play on my iTouch (that is if it is working properly!).... Then run over to JoAnns with my 40% off coupon and check out the books again (did that last weekend!) Hurrah!
And of course Old Navy (one of my fav spots to shoppe, for doggies, hubby and yes even me!) They are having $2.00 Ribbed Knit Tanks!!! All day! So that will be my first stop!!!

Blogging for Bliss New Book!

Macrame Bliss

Image
Another wonderful book I got that is really inspiring me to start macrame ing again: Bead & Fiber Jewelry.
I only even picked in the book cause of the fiber part. I figure, well maybe there is some ideas for Macrame.. OMG was there ever! I mean this is probably to date the most inspiring Macrame book I have come across, and I have come across quiet a few..

If you ever considered knotting as a art, this book is it! The macrame pieces in it are gallery gorgeous, natural, earthy, yet so sophisticated, not your hippie brand macrame (which I am all for!)..
After all the cover does say: Elegant Knotted Designs!

I feel inspired to run out and get rolls and rolls of natural linen based on these designs: Bones, Stones and Fossils.. OMG again! How many styles of knots can you put in one design??? Well they look smashing and it works.. Why didn't I think of that... Can you say steal your face designs! I will add my own touch but definetly be inspired by this book! I also love Drusy Stone Nec…

Sewing Green Gush

Image
I am a bookie! I love to have great creative pics and ideas surrounding me. Especially when I am in a rut! Or just not feelin it.. Which of course happens to all of us, if we are honest.
So I went Craft book shopping and found a few that got the juices flowing.. Oh my I love new books!~

Did I mention I purchase craft books that don't necessarily relate to my talents at this moment?? Ok here is the first one:

Sew Green. Loved the title and the fact that it is about reusing, repurposing, recycling clothes, fabrics, buttons, etc. The layout of the book A+.. The pictures are beautiful and the directions seem well laid out. Ok coming from me, who doesn't know how to sew, thatz real fresh I know.. But I got the feeling I could eventually create the Penny Rug Trivet and Coasters! I loved the take it easy lounge pants, off the cuff wallet, BYOB water bottle sling.. And a few others.. This is one creative, colourful, delic book that is worth the $20.00 I paid! (got it at B & N and hav…

Coastal and Creative Living!

Image
I recently purchased (yes I did, instead of digital copy of it, which I normally do!) Color it Coastal by Coastal Living... Some beautiful Sea Glass hue home designs and wonderful pictures of where I want to live! :)

I also picked up a coy of ReadyMade! Love that one.. If you don't know it, check it out! I love some of the Patchwork upcycling ideas!

I am going to do some collaging and a manifestation board with the Coastal Living Color it Mag, and with ReadyMade I am going to download some of the music they showcased (on eMusic) and try some of the crafty, inexpensive projects! Yah Me!
