Sewing hangover + sale ends tomorrow  
I feel like I got run over by a bus, and I only had one beer last night.  No, I'm sure it's the twelve or so hours of sewing yesterday that are responsible for my headache and tired eyes.  I woke up at six yesterday morning and couldn't get back to sleep.  So I got up, and thought "These jeans I can't wear anymore because of the holes in them - what a shame to throw them away.  I should cut them up and make a corset out of them, so I have one that will always go with jeans."  And so I did.

Instead of doing it in stages, like any normal, intelligent person would do, I cut and sewed until it was done, only stopping to eat once.  The stupidity!  I know those sewing jags give me terrible headaches!  But.  The corset/bodice did turn out super cute!

I may add some decorative buttons, but we'll see.  I wore it out last night with some of my copper jewelry, and the two went really well together.

Speaking of jewelry, the free shipping Mother's Day sale at my Etsy store is only good until midnight tonight.  Well, I'll probably let it go until tomorrow morning. :)

It is indeed, super cute. I really love the look of the neck piece, front and back.

Silly girl. Stop, eat, breathe! Less headaches to pay for it later!

Yes, eating and breaks in general are always a good idea. I know this. I just don't pay attention much when in the grip of creativity, whether it be sewing, jewelry, or writing related.

The good news is, today I'm feeling fine. :)

Hey!!! It's been forever, so that would explain why I had no idea you had an Etsy store. That website, I tell you, is responsible for making me completely poor. ;) Srsly, tho, I love Etsy. I will add you to my favorites so I can keep tabs on what you're making.

Your jewelry is lovely, btw. :)

Hugs - it's been too long since I've been on LJ. Crazy how time flies!

Rach! So good to hear from you. :D

And thank you. :-) I looooooooooooove making jewelry. And Etsy is an awesome, awesome place. If not for it, I doubt I'd've ever gotten brave enough to try to sell. I spend hours looking at all the stuff on there. (Although admittedly, there's as much bad as good.)
