I Hate My Printer And Everything Else

i was going to keep this blog positive but i have to have a rant! im so annoyed right now!

my printer was so expensive and it is not working now which means i can not do online postage and the company i bought new inks from send the wrong kind to me so i have to wait until i get more inks to see if the printer will work ( because it doesn't work unless all the ink cartridges are filled)

then when the inks come i might find out that it is actually the printer that is causing the problems and not just the ink!

when a full ink load costs around £90 you can understand why i am infuriated right now! my printer is an epson stylus r2400! which are really expensive too so im pretty distraught!

it is the last thing i need on top of everything else! i have emailed my customers to explain anyway but i hate having to do that!!

it feels nice to have a rant! such a boring rant but i had to get it out!

Been Busy Girl

i made tons of new vials before my craft fair and i managed to make 14 in one day i shocked myself! if only i could have more time i could make millions! i made some repeat ones that have already sold on dawanda and on etsy just to hopefully keep the ball rolling! here is a little photo of some together!

they remind me of yummy lolly pops!

some of my new vials!

Custom Necklace Order Finished!

i was asked to make a custom necklace similar to my blue magoo one in the strawberry anarchy shop! it was to be all green and purple and i took a bit too long on it so i made a free bangle for a present to make up for me taking too long with it! here is the finished outcome i wore it so she could see what it looks like! what do you think of it?

Mini Craft Fair @The Art Bar Dundee

My friend Nick told me that there was going to be a craft fair at the art bar in Dundee it was very last minute but i decided to go for it anyway to get my name out there a bit! it was the very first one so it was quite quiet but it was a great day and lot's of my friends came down which was great since i hadn't seen them all together for what seemed like ages! i was selling stuff quite cheap to get my name out there! here is some photo's! the only problem with having a craft fair at a bar is that you end up spending all of your money on booze! i will have to remember to stay away from the alcohol next time! but it was such a good day seeing all my friends and the sun was shining so sometimes it's o.k :)

Fairy Tales In My Mind - A Short Film By Me

a personal project i did experimenting with film and animation combined i was inspired by my trip to morocco. I did this for a university project for my computer arts post! it's quite old i graduated last year.

Wellcome To My Blog

I will start by introducing myself! My name is Miquette, I'm 26 and from Scotland! I decided to make a blog to share some things i love and to share my new creations with people and the creations i love along with other mad, cool crazy things in this mental world that catch my attention! ! i wasn't sure about having a blog before because i can be quite lazy but i reckoned it would be a nice project and good to look back to when im an old granny! here is a photo of me so you know what i look like1 it is always nice to put a picture to a face! although this photo is quite poser-ish! never mind! i had to be slightly poser-ish since i got asked to wear two of the necklaces i made at the same time! yes yes excuses excuses!

i just remembered that i will have to post the films i have made on here! - i think aloud a lot so my typing can be quite random. I'm off now to learn some new blogger stuff NOW...
