Updates: New Etsy Up and Running

My new etsy is finally up and running!

Also I’m sorry about no crocheted flowers lately. I didn’t get the chance this weekend to do it because my boyfriend and I went up to Maine to visit his friends. We went to a clam festival which also had a arts and craft fair attached. This only furthered my desire to have a booth at a craft fair or con. I have also felt a bit under the weather today for some reason. Hopefully I will find the energy tomorrow to catch up on my crochet. 

Much Happiness,

Megan

I know your name
But they know your meaning
Gliding smoothly without effort
Against pearly white backgrounds
They don’t know the word
For this atmosphere they inherited
Yet they understand it
Without any articulation
Why would they need to
Describe their natural state
Yet I look up
With wonder
At this instinctive element
Wishing to make it my own

Steampunk Sleeping Beauty

Sooo…

Recently on here I saw a post of someone doing a steampunk cosplay of Disney characters which you can see if you Click Here.

This got my imagination going wild with the idea of Disney princesses and villains going steampunk. I thought…why not try one of my own?

Since the movie Maleficent came on the scene, Sleeping Beauty has been put on the map again. Since I am petite and blonde I figured Aurora would be a good character to cosplay.

I have already ordered the skirt and top for it from Amazon. I made sure to find the perfect items and was super duper persnickety and picky.

I decided the best course of action was to draw out what I would want in my cosplay.

Updates: Blog Change Over and New Etsy

Originally posted on Colonial Armory:

Skye and I agreed that it would be in our best interests to have separate etsys. If you all didn’t already know I have a blog of my own which I’m trying to get up and running again. I kinda of lost track of it during the school year. Did you all know I was a college student? Hmm.. Anyway….

Ch-ch-ch changes:

From what we discussed Skye is going to take over this blog and start running this since it originally was supposed to be mostly his stuff anyway (oops!). I’m going to continue posting the Flower-A-Day which if you haven’t guessed already I am behind on. I have two flowers to do today and I’ll be caught up. The Flower-A-Day will appear on both blog via reblogging from this one. After that the complete switch over will happen. I will have my personal etsy setup and go over to…

Paint Night: A Super Fun Time!

Last night my sister, mom, and I went to a paint night! If you do not know what that is then you should know it involves painting and drinking (the alcoholic kind). I wasn’t drinking because I’m still underage (I’m 20). But my mom had a Gin and Tonic and my sister had a Long Island Iced Tea. 

We all were led by a woman with curly hair and a do-whatever-the-hell-you-want-it’s-your-painting attitude. This was refreshing. Of course some Bob Ross jokes were made mainly by saying “Happy Little Trees” and “There are no mistakes only happy accidents” and such. My sister told me she wants to hold her own paint night which sounds like a pretty fun idea. 

Overall, paint night was fun and actually pretty easy. A lot of people had some nice pictures they did which had their own unique flair to them even if it was based on the same picture. 

Anyhow…Here is the painting I did.
