This...is 2020

Hey, readers.  Happy New Year.  Hope you all had a good holiday season.  Mine was pretty good.  Got drunk, ate, talked smack, opened gifts and talked more smack.  Good times. XD

Before I get into some of the stuff that I got for Christmas, I wanted to show off 2 of the jewelry sets that I made for my cousin and niece.

Here's the set that I made for my cousin.  She's really into owls.  So coming up with stuff to make for her isn't hard.



And here's the set I made for my niece.




Now onto the Christmas bounty.  Of course it's not Christmas without my favorite Skeleton Man and his First Lady.








In the non-The Nightmare Before Christmas department, I got this cute sugar skull scarf and a Wednesday Addams funko pop.



More craft supplies!  Now I can make more of the things.




*drum roll*............................................DEMONIAS!!!  I've missed rocking clunky platforms.  Can't wait to wear these.




And so concludes another Christmas gift haul.  If you enjoy reading my blog and want to show some love, consider donating to my Ko-fi page.  The link can be found in the header under "SUPPORT".  Til next time.

November Update 2019

Hey, readers.  A couple of weeks ago, I celebrated my birthday.  Didn't do anything big.  Just had family over.  Now, on to the gifts.

First up, are these lace finger-less gloves.  I have no idea what to wear these with.  But I'll think of something.



Next, are these skeleton earrings and matching necklace.  I wore them when I went to see Joker.  If you can't dress like a clown while watching this movie, sport skeletons instead. XD





In the make-up department, I got an eye shadow palette, some shimmering lip gloss and make-up brushes.  Time to experiment.



Craft-wise, I got some sewing essentials and more craft supplies.  Can't wait to use that ring bender.




And of course, as I've done for the last 2 years, I created a birthday playlist on youtube.


Speaking of music, my boys are back!  Dr. Death and Mr. Vile recently released their new album, The WOLF on bandcamp.  It's described as a journey into the struggle of the darkest and brightest corners of the human psyche.  I highly recommend giving the album a listen.

That concludes the November Update for this year.  If you enjoy reading my blog and want to show some love, consider donating to my Ko-fi page.  The link can be found in the header under "SUPPORT".  Til next time.

Peek-a-Boo Bouquet


Hey, readers.  Welcome back to Aji's Decorating Corner.  In my last blog post, I talked about some spooky fake flowers that I got from the Dollar Tree.  In this post, I'll be showing you what I did with them.

Since I didn't have access to a vase, I decided to put the flowers in this sugar skull mug.


As I stated in my previous post, I wasn't crazy about the spiders that were on the flowers.  Luckily, I was able to just pulled them off.  No cutting required.


Next, I got a black glitter branch, sandwiched it between the two sets and tied them together with a piece of creepy cloth.



Because I didn't have any styrofoam on hand, in order to keep the bouquet from moving around in the mug, I stuffed it with plastic shopping bags (Preferably in black/dark colors.)  If you decide to try this project yourself, the number of plastic bags you use will depend on the size of the mug.  For this, I used four.


I took one of the bags, balled it up and stuffed it at the bottom of the mug.  Then, I put the bouquet in.



After that, I took the remaining bags and stuffed them around the bouquet.


To finish it off, I cut a few strips of creepy cloth and wrapped them around.  This also helps to cover up the plastic bags.



Behold!  The finished product.


And so concludes another episode of Aji's Decorating Corner.  If you enjoy reading my blog and want to show some love, consider donating to my Ko-fi page.  The link can be found in the header under "SUPPORT".  Til next time.

Peek-a-Boo


Hey, readers.  Wanted to share with you another one of my spooky finds.  Came across these flowers at Dollar Tree.




Not crazy about the spiders.  Those are definitely getting cut off.  After I do that, I need to find a nice vase to put them in.
