Unfortunate Merfolk, Like Yourself.

Mermaid outfit

I got this METALLIC MERMAID SKIRT (too much amazingness not to be in ALL CAPS) on what is know as The Best Thrifting Day Of 2013 So Far. It was the same day I got my IMITATION MINK COAT (see previous parentheses) and I recall making a vegan double chocolate cake on that day too so, yeah, it was kind of impeccable.

Ariel is my Disney Princess. Despite the fact that she's a 16 year old hung up on some prince guy she creepily spys on and I'm freaked out by the ocean, she's my spirit princess. This skirt was in the fancy dress section and I like to imagine that someone wore it to a Disney Princess and Villains party (I'd go as Ursula or Malificent but that's a different story). It was also $2 so I win.

Annnd can you see my new desk!? Isn't it amazing! I feel pretty fancy sitting at it. Obviously I had to get pink legs, I mean, when pink is an option you always go there. It's a pretty big deal that I now have all this space to spread stuff out and a billion (six) drawers to put all my making and writing and doing things in. I've been pinning workspaces for ever so this is a big deal for me.

1000 sales! PIXIE and PIXIER

Speaking of big deals! My shop reached 1000 sales the other day! It's kind of mind boggling to think that there are so many of the weird little things I make floating around the world. THANK YOU!
