Vacation Notice

Tomorrow is my birthday! :) I'm turning 24. I will be on vacation for the next few weeks starting this Friday. I am visiting my family in Las Vegas. Yay! I've been needing a break.

So if you were planning to make a purchase in my shop, please do so in the next two days, and I will ship paid orders out before I leave. On Friday, I will be setting my shop to Vaction mode, and customers will not be able to purchase anything or peruse my Etsy items until I get back. If you miss my shop and just want to peruse all the cool stuff, don't forget my facebook page! I post a lot of my item pictures on facebook. Feel free to fan my page (if you haven't already) and comment on photos.

Other News... I'm still working on a crocheted cat hat with ears. The ears are not coming out how I would like them. For my first attempt, the ears were too forward and close together. I also thought they were too small. So I made bigger ears for the second one. They might be a little too big, but I like their triangular shape. I tried to give them a 3D effect by folding the inner part of the ear and attaching them to the hat that way. However, as you can see in the picture, I spaced the ears too far apart and it looks like a bat hat? As you may notice, I also tried to stitch in a lightning bolt in gold yarn. Haha :) It's an imperfect bolt. (lol) I think I will make the next bolt out of felt. I will try again later, after my much needed vacation. ;)

What do you think? Bat hats for Halloween? Feel free to comment. Be sure to follow my blog!

New Crocheted Hats

New crocheted hats have been added to the Lightning Cat shop! I made my first crocheted hat on August 24th. Since then I have made a total of five crocheted hats. I am currently perfecting a Lightning Cat hat with ears and a lightning bolt. It takes a few hours to make each hat. They are definitely made with love. ♥ :) Two days ago, my boyfriend helped me photograph the new hats and new jewelry. For the photographs, I wore my favorite blue shirt and put on some colorful blue eyeshadow to match. ;) This was my first attempt at smoky eye makeup! I think the photographs turned out quite well. :) I have more ideas for new hats. So keep your eyes peeled for new items in my shop! :) I will also be posting more jewelry. So look out!
