Pin Up Girl

Lately in my venture for weird crocheted projects I have grown an interest in pin up girl style! There was going to be pictures today, but my hair was in such a deep condiditoning I was afraid it would all fall out!

But if there is any kind of bad habit I have, its turning my attempts at crafting into a HUGE history lesson. I won't ramble, instead I will share some links and videos \

For starters, I wanted a simple Pinup style, something I could go out and wear and it wouldn't take me that long. in all of my herpderp glory I marveled as she stuck a bunch of pins in her hair and I realized one reason why it was called "pinup" girl.

This is another one I considered for party styles and going out! I love the flower embelishment and I might be using this for Craft show ideas.

This girl is my all time favorite, she's adorable and gives very thought out explanations of each thing. She also vary much looks the part for it as well! I might be following more of her videos for other tips. This would make a very good casual daytime updo, since I can't always garauntee I'll be doing something user friendly (such as dance practice)

Looking for these things has also make me accept I won't really do all aspects of the pinup girl style. Im not a big fan of makeup, and I can't always garauntee a specific style will look good on me, so I'll do makeup as well, but not as much!

Tonight I will connect to my roots and also look up black pinup girls as well!

Visit my Etsy!

Sorry I hadn't blogged like I should, but this is too good to pass up!

After hours of sizzling in the pan the bacon has been majorly brought! Come visit my etsy and buy!

Also! enter colorfrenzy and recieve free shipping with the purchase of two things of like yarn colors.

In light of some recent events, I am also developing a new product! For a friends birthday I used his love of meats as an inspiration and came up with a bacon wallet. Needless to say to me it was a bit depressing, just a crocheted peice of cotton folded in half and shoddily stitched together to make a pouch (because men don't have coinpurses he says :p)

Seeing as I can be such a stickler, I am making a new one I am much more comfortable with! This one is going to be much more dimensional and elaborate with a lot of necessary stuff that I think a wallet needs. I will still add the bacon element to it ^^ Pics will be up when it is done.

With this bacon kick there will also be many more surprises! Check back soon!
