Fat Cat

Love your fat cat!
That is all


I woke up this morning and headed off to the computer to veg and play a video game or so.
Upon start up I received an email, it said I sold an item on etsy.
Cool beans! I thought.
Went to my etsy store to see which one (should have read the email durr) found out my store was empty!
:O :O :O
Very excited to see that my 4 items had sold, I hadn't expected any to sell in the first day.
Shipped off my items this afternoon, packed with bubble wrap, tape and packing peanuts.
I hope its packed well enough, I don't want anything to break.
I feel that it should withstand nuclear holocaust, so we shall see...

Off to make blue bunny tea cups. These cups are so dainty and will have ferocious bunnies on them!

Just posted my first item on etsy! So nervous! I am gonna wait to post more just to see how this all works with etsy.
I am more afraid of making sure it gets to the buyer in one piece, gotta get all the stuff to ship it just incase.

Miranda's to do list:

bubble wrap

That is all for now!

me thinks its time to travel to IKEA

Yes I think its that time of year! Yay for bulk items from IKEA!
Now to plan a trip with a vehicle that is not a bus/skytrain...

A nice cup of tea

I was thinking about making a cute set of cups, and I figured this would be a test set.

And while I was looking for tea things, I ran across this:

You can never get a cup of tea large enough or a book long enough to suit me. ~C.S. Lewis

They sold

I am so happy, they were only on Facebook for less than 2 hours!
This makes me so excited!

More things will be for sale I think :)

Crazy Easter Bunny Mugs COMPLETE

Here it is, 2 sets of mugs. I think even right on time for Easter in case you want a crazy Easter bunny mug to drink out of.

Easter Bunnies!

Hes peeking!

They have fangs! Kinda like Mikaela's bunnies

I am not sure if I want to do a set of 4 of just bunnies or if I should do each seperate mug with a different animal. I got these mugs at Sally Anne for $2.00. I think I will do my other mugs momma gave me too, but later tonight.

Happy March!

Its March finally! I thought spring was close and then it had to snow. The snow is still on the ground and its just cold and icy.

Had my birthday at my parents place. My momma made me ham dinner and lemon cake with the rainbow icing that I love so much! It was the best birthday!
We played dutch blitz and watched 30 Rock, it was nice and relaxing.

So a couple days ago I was just about to pass the mailbox on my way up the stairs. I was avoiding the mail because I knew there were bills inside and I hate it when mail is just bills. I got it because I saw junk mail clogging it up and that makes me mad. So in my anger I wrenched open the little door and had the worst time trying to get the stupid free magazine unstuck. I almost didn't see the other mail (thinking it was just bills) but I saw something that said "Time sensitive". Intriguing!

From BCIT! I don't think my brain was functioning properly because my first thought was "FAILSAUCE! Its a Reject letter!" I went upstairs, threw away the magazine and opened my letter.

Second thought was "This letter is so full of crap, like maps to the campus...why" (later I wonder how brain should have clicked then).

ACCEPTED! WOOOOO! I was pretty shocked conscidering that my math was sub par and I made a portfolio in 2 and a half weeks.

So school starts September 27th and its for graphic design. I am taking classes in the evenings! They recommend that working full time is bad so I am praying for things to go well in September and that we can afford this all. I dislike the idea of working at mcdonalds so we shall see.

I think that I've been not eating enough veggies cause I have been craving them all week.
I hit up safeway and stocked up on all kinds of things, even avacado. Made a veggie cream cheese bagel sandwhich and made greek pasta salad. Feeling much better now...mmmm vitamins mmmmm antioxidants!

On another note, I think I am going to get a screen printing kit to make stationary and other things. Off to eBay to find me a cheap kit!
