La Femme Accident

July 25, 2010

Major credit to anyone who knows the origin of the title, by the way. OMD forever!

I just found out about the coolest car…no, THING ever:

The Dodge La Femme

“Unveiled in 1955, the Dodge La Femme was Dodge’s appeal to the female driver of the late 1950’s.”

Holy shitballs isn’t it pretty?! How did I never know about this?

The 1955 model came with a stylish rain cape, fisherman’s style rain hat and umbrella. Additionally, buyers were presented with a “stunning shoulder bag in soft rose leather…fitted with compact, lighter and cigarette case.” How rad is that?!

Ugh. Now there’s another car to add to my list of classics I want to own someday. And by list I mean my head full of pretty old cars. Someday I’ll own a classic car, probably not a La Femme, but I will still wear a stylish raincoat and stylish rain boots in it.

Bieber

July 14, 2010

So what the french hell is up with this Justin Bieber horseshit? Even the Belgians know about him. I shit you not, I hung out with some tonight and they were all up on the Bieber front.

I walk into Hot Topic and see him/her everywhere, then he/she’s all over the internet now…what the hell is up with this kid?

Is that a comb forward? That hair is TERRIBLE. So terrible if I saw a kid with it in person I’d go fix it.

Man, I wanna hit that. As in take my fist and punch it in the poop face. The world is ending if this shit is popular and considered normal. Is that a fucking CARDIGAN? ON A DUDE?! F that. I’ve had a few beers.

BIEBER HAS A MANGINA!

Craft Uprising

July 13, 2010

So I’m stuck at home with a broken leg. Actually, I can drive, so I’m not completely stuck, but for the most part, I’m at home and bored out of my Goddamn mind.

Enter crafts.

I make jewelry, and I have for over a year now. I don’t have a style, I just make what I think other people want, and hope people will buy it. So far, this has worked for me. Now, however, I’m starting to get that “f you, i make what i want” attitude and just making what I want to make. Enter Lola the skeleton girl:

I think she’s just flat out gorgeous. I really didn’t think that many people would buy this jewelry, but holy shit! It sold out so fast! I sold them at my booth at a local arts festival, Artopia in Seattle.

The best part is WHO bought them. Mostly old ladies. Seriously. A couple normal skull wearing types, but one middle aged lady with a canvas tote with kittens on it bought 3 pieces. It was crazy.

So now I’m thinking about making Lola my signature piece and just making other jewelry to supplement it, as needed. Except I also bought this cameo, which is wicked awesome:

Speaking of Octopus-ses, Octopi, what the f ever you call multiple octopusses, shit. I’m getting a new tattoo this week. Right now I have a mermaid on my right foot, and now she will have a pretty Octo-lady friend on my left foot.

Isn’t she AMAZING?! She won’t look exactly like that since it has to fit on my foot, and I may have wide flat feet, but I don’t have Yeti feet. So she’ll be a little more compact, but beautiful nonetheless.

BACK TO CRAFTING

The first craft I took up since the leg break was making cell phone pouches. I know I already blogged about my foray into sewing, but whatever. Listen to it more. So what actually happened was that I bought a pouch from an Etsy shop, got it, it didn’t fit my phone. Balls. So I ripped it apart, figured out how she sewed it, and made one Droid size. And now that’s what I’m making, Motorola Droid sized cell phone pouches.

I’m trying to use really rad fabrics, not just flowers and shit. I do have some flowers and shit, but mostly cool stuff. Like camping pinup girls.

And my favorite, Day of the Dead. Again, the skull thing…I had two older ladies buy these pouches at the festival, then my MOTHER IN LAW, who is (in no disrespect) kinda yuppy, chose a Day of the Dead pouch for her new Droid. LOVE IT! I’m spreading the dead!

So then I had all this scrap fabric and needed something small to make. Enter coffee coozies. First off, I never thought I’d own a glass coffee cup mug, let alone with a homemade coozy on it. Now I own both, and make the latter.

I really didn’t think it was anything but practice, but now people are ordering them, so shit…gotta get better at top stitching, whatever.

And NOW I’m making laptop bags. My husband needed one for his new laptop, so I made him the cell phone pouch only bigger, and it works just great. I’ve tweaked his pattern and made one for my laptop, and it’s pretty rad, if I do say so myself.

And I do say so myself, because it’s good to have faith in yourself and love what you do, so yeah, my shit is awesome. And now a ton of people are going to see it, because I’m doing a giveaway in August thru a popular giveaway blog. I’ve been loading up my Etsy shop with as much shit as I can cram in and have it still look good.

So here’s my dilemma. I make like a gazillion things. Okay, four things, maybe five. Is it ok to have all the different things in one Etsy shop? Or should I have one for sewing, one for jewelry, one for my artwork, etc? It’s too much work to have two shops now, so I really don’t want more than that. But does it look jumbled, messy…? Go check it out and tell me: Lazy Susan’s Finery & Frippery.

And to end my rant, here is a picture of a kitten, and a link to Meowmania. Enjoy!

Try not to poop from the cuteness.

Kisses!

Susan

Happy 4th, fools!

July 4, 2010

And here are some red, white, and blue things that make me happy.

How rad is that couch?

Mmmm….cake…..

I’ve turned into a country dork and started a bottle collection. So yeah, blue bottles thrill me.

The red eyes of a blood sustaining vampire. I know, I’m a retard. No, I’m a Twi-tard.

Oh shit. I pooped he’s so cute.

I’d like to be there right now, who’s with me?

Yes, cake twice. I love cake so much it hurts. Especially Red Velvet.

Classic Red lips…and a hot white American bitch.

F-ing gorgeous.

I want a blue chair. And a cat.

Have a happy, safe, 4th of July! Don’t blow up any babies or fingers!

birds n’ shit

June 30, 2010

I love birds in the home. Not real ones, they are really annoying. But I gravitate to anything with a damn bird on it.

The problem is, how much bird can you put in a house? Can each room have a bird? Does it need to stay in one room?

Can I have wallpaper with birds in it AND pillows or little birdy statues?

Can I have a birdy bed and have birdy bedding?

Ugh I love this headboard from Ballard Designs.

And THAT is too gorgeous. I want to nap in that bed naked.

What say ye?

Silhouette. A crafting device for Susan.

June 22, 2010

I think I need a crafting device. I can craft like crazy on my own, but I would love a device that can help me craft.

Enter Silhouette.

Can you imagine all the cool stuff I could make? Can you imagine all the cool gifts you, my friends, would receive?

I want to dry hump this punchbowl.

And Bill Murray Onesies! Oh the possiblities….

You know I’d make one of those in every color and size and make everyone I know one. Because Bill Murray is just that cool.

Speaking of Bill Murray, did you see him in Zombieland?

Holy shitballs that was funny.

Oh. And you can win a silhouette here.

I love free stuff

June 21, 2010

So I’m blogging about a contest for an extra entry! Check it out, the jewelry is so cute, it’s from The Vintage Pearl. Even though I make jewelry, I never wear my own, I only wear stuff that other people make, weird.

And I feel down in the dumps lately, and a prize might just make me feel a ton better 🙂

Cheers, and Happy Monday!
