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.

This is.....


Hey, readers.  Halloween season is now upon us.  Here's an affordable way to goth up your shopping experience.  While out hunting for spooky items or running general errands, use Halloween themed reusable shopping bags.  These can be found in stores like Marshalls, TJ Maxx and Home Goods.

Besides the cool designs, the best part about these bags is that they only cost 99 cents.  So, stock up!  Here's my small collection of skelly bags.  Regular readers of my blog will probably recognize the 2 larger bags from previous posts.  Originally, I was going to cut them up and frame them as art.  But I changed my mind and decided to use them for their intended purpose.

Something Crooked this Way Comes

Hey, readers.  Got a new recommendation for you.  My friend Tricia, the illustrator behind the "Midnight, Me & Bob Macabre" book, now has a Teespring shop.  It's called Crooked House Art.  In it, she sells items that feature her creepy designs.

Here are some examples of the items that you'll find in her shop.






If sporting items with creepy art on it is your thing, swing by Crooked House Art and pick up a few things.  Be the envy of your neighborhood.

Branching Out

Hey, readers.  Been keeping myself busy these past few weeks.  Finally got the Sarcasm and Coffee Podcast off the ground.  It focuses on entertainment news and movies/television shows.  I livestream the podcast Tuesday nights on Twitch.

If you can't make it to the livestreams, don't worry.  After I finish a stream, I upload it to my Youtube channel.  Links to both channels can be found in the header.  Since we're on the subject of my blog header, you might of noticed that a new "SHOP" link has been added to it.  That's because I bit the bullet and opened up a shop on Teespring.

So far, I only have 1 design available.  But if the shop does well, I'll add more in the future.  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.
