Now live...Thingies, my Etsy Shop!


Yes!!! :D I finally accepted the challenge and opened my Etsy Store. (http://thingies.thepurpleblug.com or http://sphinxy.etsy.com) It took a very pushy (yet adorable) girl at Ravelry asking if I sold my jewelry somewhere... It's on very early stages and only has a few things up (because fixing photos is sooooooo stressful!) but I made a huge batch last week.

They are not up yet, I kept waiting for a nice day to take the photos outdoors but that never happened! So I took them indoors with very very bad lighting and getting them ready is taking forever! That's why I haven't made this post. But since the widget is already on my sidebar I figured it was the right thing to do...

Go take a look and let me know what you think... there's a lot of work to be done and I'll love to hear what you have to say...


And to make it more interesting... what about a tiny giveaway? Check out the store and leave a comment on this post before October 12th and I'll randomly pick one of you and send something that will be describe on a later post... something nice... I don't say what exactly here because I came up with the idea while writting this... probably a set of earrings, bracelet and pendant... come on, you know you wanna! ;-)

Stuff...

Not much has happened around here lately, hence the lack of blogging...
Week two of school wasn't all that entertaining (neither was week one for that matter...)
School has started slow... mostly because of, the usual, problems with the school union workers... but they seeem to be temporarely fine... week two started until wednesday because we had two days off (Independence day on the 15th and Teacher's day on the 17th, but they moved it so we could have a long weekend...
Given the time, I tried to work on my Hat-attack weapon, but that didn't work all too well, I've had to frog the hat twice... I am sooooooooo getting killed!
Also, I got a new phone! :D (yes, another one!!)


A Nokia 5610... what a lovely phone... I can actually say I love this phone, not that the motorola z3 was that bad, but this one is great! It has radio, a 3.2mp camera with flash and autofocus, and music dedicated thingies... :D



Also, I have something big to talk about, but that requires a whole different post... and some tweeking anyway... Hopefully, tomorrow I can get it all ready... :D There's a hint on my Twitter widget... and proof on the sidebar :-p


Back to School...

So after, very boring, four weeks I´m going back to school.. the term starts tomorrow at last!
We were supposed to start last week but they decided to delayed it, I´m not entirely sure why; I´m guessing it had to do with an explosion in one of the buildings a couple of weeks ago...

The Pharmacy and Chemistry Building, the oldest building in the university, exploded after apparently the exposure of some chemicals to the heat. About 90% of the inside of the building was destroyed, but since the classes had finished a couple of weeks before there were no students or teachers there...

No other buildings were damaged but they were ruling out contamination on the rest of the campus. The last I heard was that they were getting rid of all the food from the cafeterias. So I´m guessing everything will be just back to normal tomorrow.

To be honest, the days off weren´t so boring, I did managed to get a lot done that I wasn´t really planning to...

The Ravelympics were a blast!
I actually finished 3 projects... and got to try spinning and finished two tiny yarns, about 7 yards each but I only had very little roving... The socks came out great!

Here, have a look at my lovely projects (Ok, almost all of them... there´s a bracelet made with the new handspun yarn, that looks funky...)



Also got to make a bunch of things for my cousins last week... One of them wanted me to make her a hat and I ended up making 2 hats, a headband and two bracelets for them... leaving my shawl abandoned...
