Ok, this time I am going to endeavour to write a little less but give you more pictures.
I came up with a new piece of tactical origami jewellery today.
I was chasing a criminal in a very public place today and I really didn't want to reveal my powers. Usually they do some crazy raving about being attacked by birds and the police think they have gone mad and I am safe. Today I was on a crowded beach and had to do something subtle-ish. She was faster than me and getting away so I made a little snake and sent it underneath the sand towards her till it surfaced at her feet and wrapped itself around her legs bringing her to the ground. I could catch up and sort her out from there. It got me thinking though that I need something to simply help me go faster so I built this little ostrich brooch. Not subtle at all! But people DO a least ride ostriches and it should be lots of fun.
I have also become even more obsessed with Etsy, reading pages of advice to sellers. There is so much to do! Networking, joining a team, photography, making things, listing and relisting. I would spend all day on it if it didn't get tiring being on a computer all day and having to check in on police reports regularly.
Also I have been spending a lot of time drooling over other people's stuff on Etsy. A friend of mine got engaged and I have been using that as an excuse to check out some beautiful things. If me and John ever get married I want these at my wedding!
Enchantingsoapfavors also does a variety of carved soap flowers that are all really impressive but the pumpkin stands out to me as the best. Although this is also amongst the top:
I can't imagine anyone using these to wash! Too pretty to destroy.
Oh and inspired by the beach event I created my very first treasury themed on pirate princesses. I'm pretty happy about it and everyone commenting got into the pirate mood.Pirate Princess Treasury I'll leave with a sample from it:
