Ugh

Hey, readers.  Some good news.  Over the weekend, my mother got my jewelry supplies out of storage.  Now, some bad news.  When I opened the bag, I saw that the majority of the beads, earring hooks, etc. had fallen out of the container and were scattered all over the bottom of the bag.

So, I ended up spending most of Sunday resorting and putting everything back the way it was.  After that mess was taken care of, I taped up the sides of the container to ensure that none of my supplies would fall out again.  Was your weekend more interesting or just as uneventful as mine was?  Let me know in the comments.  Til next time.

Pop Goes the Skellington

Hey, readers.  A few days ago, I decided to check out the comic book store that's across the street from my brother's apartment.  Once I entered the store, I immediately noticed the wall full of pop figurines.  Sadly, they didn't have any Rocky Horror ones.  But as I looked down towards the bottom, I saw a few Nightmare Before Christmas figurines.

Naturally, I had to go with Jack.  He's my favorite skeleton.  I always found Jack to be cute.  Especially when he's smiling.


Once I scrounge up enough money, I'm going to get Sally next.  Can't break up a couple.  Til next time.

Nomading About

Hey, readers.  It's life update time.  Due to shady landlord shenanigans, my mother and I had to vacate the premises.  We're currently staying with family til we can find a new place to live.  So, Aji's Decorating Corner will definitely be on hiatus.

I've only been here a week, and I'm already going crazy.  Since the apartment my family lives in is small, I had to leave my bag of craft supplies in our storage unit so we wouldn't take up too much space.  This majorly sucks.  I hate leaving my things in storage.  Especially since we lost a majority of our stuff twice over the years with this damn storage company.

I'm still salty about it.  Family photos, my high school yearbook, and other personal belongings.  Gone.  It feels like part of me is missing.  If we lose our things for a third time, I think I'm going to crack.

That's enough venting for today.  Hopefully, my next post will be less of a downer.  Til next time.

Craft Along with GIY: Another Challenge Met

http://gothityourself.blogspot.com/p/craft-along-with-giy.html

Hey, readers.  It's the end of March, and I have completed another project for Craft Along with GIY.  This month's theme was Rhymes with "that".  Meaning I had to create something that rhymes with the word "that".  After spending most of the month brainstorming, I decided to make a "Fab Bat" bracelet.


The best part about this bracelet is that the letters glow in the dark.  It will keep me safe while jogging at night. XD  Leave a comment if you get the reference.  Til next time.

Who You Gonna Call?

Definitely not a pair of unlicensed and semi-illegal ghost hunters.  That's what the webcomic, A Ghost Story, is based aroundFollow Maxine and Jack as they exterminate ghosts while also causing citywide chaos and panic.  So far, I've only read the first chapter.  But I can already tell that it's going to be a fun read.

My next post will be about my latest project for this month's Craft Along with GIY theme.  You can expect that one at the end of the month.  Til next time.

So.....?




Hey, readers.  Been spending the last few days trying to come up with something to make for this month's Craft Along with GIY theme.  Other than that, nothing much has been going on with me.  But what about you?  How's your weekend been shaping up?  

Let me know in the comments.  Til next time.

Craft Along with GIY: Challenge Accepted



Hey, readers.  I did it.  I threw my hat in the ring, and took part in Craft Along with GIY.  The theme for this month was letters and numbers.  After 2 years of it sitting amongst my craft supplies, I finally made use of my letter A pendant.


Since I was out of silver chains and limited on silver wire, I had no idea how I was going to turn this thing into a necklace.  After a lot of overthinking and checking out necklace designs online, I decided to make it out of beads and eye pins.  Normally, I only used eye pins for earrings and small necklace details.  However, I put my paranoid fears aside and went for it.  Voila!



Craft Along with GIY Project: Complete.  Til next time.
