Oh Etsy

16 Feb

WARNING picture heavy post lol

Am I the only one who spends hours and hours Etsy?  I can’t believe how much time it SUCKS out of my day!  I started looking for shamrock brooches because I don’t have one yet and I would love to have a brooch for every holiday. Eventually though my mind wanders and I almost always end up looking at pink things! I was talking to my friend Brent on Skype and he’s SUCH an enabler! He finds stuff I might like and links them to me!

Here are some lovely things I found.

Clever use of buttons!

Look at the tiny flowers with pearl centers on this one.

I love the girls face on this one.

I think this one might be my favorite I love the flowers and the color!

Pretty touches on this one.

Looks like an old piece of china made into a brooch.

Last but not least is a Lego heart brooch I’m DEF making this one!

What do you guys look for on Etsy?


Happy Valentines Day!

15 Feb

Happy Heart Day! I love V Day. It’s about love what’s not to love about love?!

I got a few presents from an awesome guy

The white cube is a color changing light up Hello Kitty clock, next to that is a box of pink shimmery gaming dice, next is Fairytale the unicorn and they’re all sitting on top of a box of pink Legos.  I also got this cool fiber optic thing for my hair but I forgot to put it in the picture.

Hope you guys all had a great day ❤


Whitney Houston

12 Feb

I was sad to hear about Whitney Houston dying. She was so talented. You have to be very careful with fame I think.

My Hair

9 Feb

Is brown. It’s brown again, I hate it. I’m going through a program at the moment where these people help you find a job, they said no odd colors. Apparently pink is an odd color.

I am thankful for the help and I know brown hair will increase the odds of my getting a job so I dyed it back to brown.

But I hate it.

My name is Karlene and I am a craftoholic, with ADD!

I can’t help it.. I see something neat on Pintrest, Etsy or on a fellow bloggers page and I think OMG that’s awesome I want to TRY that!

The problem is, I don’t finish ALL of them. I have half finished crochet, felt, decoupage, painting and all kinds more stuff.  I found I pink fairy castle box and I want to make one SOOOOO bad! I found an earring hanger made from perforated sheet metal and I want to make that too!! I

I need to wrap up some stuff THEN start new stuff.
