w00t! e19 update! [04 Nov 2007|07:52am]
[ mood | sleepy ]



Next week will be Element Nineteen's birthday! E19 turns 2 this year. I can't believe it's already been two years! :) In celebration of Element Nineteen's birthday, I've put together an exclusive line of faux-pearl necklaces. Each necklace starts at only $10 a piece, and shipping is a flat rate of $2 to anywhere to Canada/USA!

Aside from the sale going on, there's a new layout! I've been working on it for a while now, and I'm so happy that it's finally up!

new purse! [04 Feb 2007|02:56pm]
[ mood | content ]

I'm starting to get back into sewing-mode, which is good because I've been away from it for much too long. I sat myself for for 3 straight hours last night, trying to get this finished by the end of the night, but couldn't. I ended up waking up at 9 this morning to complete it. This is the first bag I've ever used satin for, and the first bag that I've ever made this size. It's HUGE! I swear I could fit my life in here. lol!

Next week will be filled with more sewing (hopefully), as I just purchased these fabrics on Friday:


The colourful red/blue/green fabric will most likely be the exterior fabric of a purse for myself. As for the rest of the fabrics, I have no idea what to do with them as yet. They will most likely be turned into purses too, but I just don't know what style of purses to make them into. Suggestions?

someone please pry me away from my computer before I go broke.
I've been window shopping online inbetween job applications. This is currently on my list of things to drool over:



more more more!Collapse )

The crazy thing is that all of these items are less than $10 (with the exception of the black jacket with the pink bow), but shipping is like $35, and I need to order a minimum of 12 items. -whines-

long time no craft! [14 Aug 2006|09:10am]
[ mood | accomplished ]


I actually just gave it away over the weekend, although I wanted to keep it for myself. I love the colour combination of pink and black, and the fact that I found pink and black houndsooth fabric made me really excited to make something out of it. It's a simple little tote, but this time I added some ribbon for closure, and a baby fawn pin for decoration.


This is the inside of the purse. It's the first time I've ever added a cell phone/camera pocket to any of my bags. (Did I mention that the lining is also houndsooth fabric?) In the future, I think I'm going to make all of my bags with inside pockets. They're quite useful (they protect my phone from getting scratched by my keys)!" I'm a little silly and went overboard with the measurements of this pocket, though. It's a tad too big for my cell phone, and it fits my (clunky) camera quite snuggly.

For my birthday, I would like this bunny delivered to my kitchen table (cheesecake, strawberry topping, and birthday hat).

I have been productive... in a nonacademic way. oops! [18 Mar 2006|08:50pm]
[ mood | happy ]

Instead of doing my homework this week, I have been crafting. I have been updating E19 like crazy, and am finally finished with my update for March.

Aside from the shop, I made a new purse for myself. I stumbled upon this really easy tutorial on Craftster, and as easy as it appeared, it too me about two hours just to cut all of the pieces out. The sewing took even longer because I've never made a rounded bottom purse with contrasting trim/edges before. I was going crazy halfway through the purse, contemplating if this frustration would be worth it, but I'm glad I finished because it's so cute!



Surprised at the colour scheme? lol.

yay for birthdays! [19 Feb 2006|10:13am]
[ mood | happy ]

Yesterday I went on a madrush to finish Barbara's (belated) birthday present. I was originally going to use cordorouy fabric, but the black dye kept rubbing off everywhere, and even after I soaked the fabric and rang it out, there was still a lot of excess dye in it. GRR.

My mom took me to get more fabric early in the morning, and then I drafted the layout for her purse, and put it all together. This was the end result:


It's a black purse with ribbon closure and a Jack Skellington applique on the front.

productive weekends! [27 Nov 2005|07:10pm]
[ mood | good ]


Instead of doing my homework this morning, I decided that I wanted to make pins/brooches for Element Nineteen. I don't exactly remember what I was inspired by, but I'm glad I crafted instead of doing homework! I ended up adding a new purse to the site as well as 3 new pins. hehehe. I liked wearing all 3 pins at the same time on my vest and strutting around the house. My sister looked at me like I was a weirdo, though.

Other than crafting, this weekend was spent at the mall (where I blew $70 in less than an hour, since most of my money went to my sisters), playing Mario Party 7 on a newly repurchased Gamecube (we had one earlier this year, but my sister decided to put it on eBay, and then we were both craving to play MP7 yesterday, which is why we ended up going to the mall twice so we could buy another Gamecube), and listening to Jack Johnson.

Ahh. I don't want the weekend to be over.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING! [10 Oct 2005|12:41pm]
[ mood | good ]

To my fellow Canadians, Happy thanksgiving!

... and since I have a new lj icon, this also means that I have new pictures! Ikura is such a good bunny. She lets us (my sisters and I) do photoshoots of her on our kitchen table with dumb props.






Ikura with a wooden hot plate mat on her head & a fake flower = fun mornings.
I love how her facial expressions never change. She's so cute!


I guess I won't have to fight Fiji to try to get her to dress up for Halloween this year. Ikura will be my new victim model!
