For Your Listening Pleasure

Hey, readers.  Hope you all had a good World Goth Day.  I spent mine trying to rid myself of the remainder of a cold that I have been suffering from for the last couple of weeks.  Now that I'm starting to feel a bit better, I wanted to offer up some cool music recommendations.

  • Esoterik: A band from Oklahoma City driven by synth-pop and darkwave.
  • As Angels Bleed: A gothic-symphonic metal band that hails from Sydney, Australia. The band is heavily influenced by vampire images and themes.
  • Jess-O-Lantern: A New York artist with an acoustic horrorpunk sound.
  • Night Spirit: Also from New York, Night Spirit is a power metal band with a supernatural twist.
Those are my recommendations.  Hope you find something that you like out of the list.  Now, back to trying to shake off my hacking cough.  Til next time.

Craft Store Run

Hey, readers.  Since my niece has a birthday coming up this weekend, I decided to make her some jewelry.  Yesterday, my mother went to Michael's and bought some charms.  After I checked out the charms she got, I decided to make a necklace out of one of them and a charm bracelet with the rest.  So today, I went to A.C. Moore to get some more jewelry essentials for the task.

I ended up getting some chain in a gun metal finish, a pack of necklace cords and some pink beads.  Pink is one of my niece's favorite colors.  If I remember, I'll post some pics of the finished products on my instagram page.  Since she's too young to have any social media accounts, I don't have to worry about her seeing them before her birthday. XD Til next time.

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.
