I've been incredibly busy this past month, with The Pink Parlour (pictures in a bit), Fashion Whore, plus a ton of custom orders. So I found some time to post a few quick pictures..

Jenni at Coco's in Newhall, on the way to Jennifer Erickson's place to crash for the night. This is her "My baby is full!" picture.

We arrive in Tarzana a little earlier than expected, so we find a yogurt place down the street.

Bright and early the next morning, we arrive at the Santa Anita Racetracks in Arcadia. Due to a huuuge discrepancy between the venue owner and event organizers, most of the booths are forced to move a bit. I end up with the VERY front :)

My awesome bestie helped greatly with jewelry merchandising.

Awesome people I met!

Two band members. OMG SHOES

Reunited with Leia! Also met her friend (if you're reading, tell me your name, I forgot it!)

Photobucket
So many cute girls!

At Johnny Rocket's at the mall next door after the event. We were disappointed that the jukeboxes weren't working, we wanted to hear some Barry! Copacabana came on later anyway :)

What's new with me? [11 Dec 2009|06:25pm]

Just listed four new necklaces on Etsy! Hope you like 'em. By the way, my sister Jo-Anne (sugarcreep.etsy.com) made the awesome necklace stand! And congrats to her for her new job at the San Jose Museum of Art!

I hadn't done much on Etsy because a huuuge 2-week project came up and I could really use the Christmas money. My younger sister had met the owner of a company that does Disney Princess parties, and the girl that dresses up as Belle needed a new dress. Like, the Disneyland version of Belle. Yeah. That was all I ever did for two weeks while I wasn't at work. AND a coworker was let go so I got all her hours. Not easy, but the customer was very happy with her dress.

And here's my Christmas tree:

Photos from Valt Girls shoot! [17 Nov 2009|11:38am]


So after making plans to attend the Hello Kitty fashion show at Royal/T and have them fall through (due to the asshole move of announcing TWO DAYS BEFORE THE EVENT that you need tickets and I didn't end up getting any) I decided to cheer myself up by posting some of the many photos I got from our little Valt Girls shoot last August!

More this way!Collapse )

Getting sick! booooooo! I've got to get better, I'm going to Caba-Ribal in Bakersfield tomorrow! Plus I've got a birthday party to attend afterwards. Which reminds me, I gotta find some fairy wings, as it's a woodland creature theme...

Off to Target to get some orange juice and more toothbrushes. While I'm washing bedding, sterilizing every surface I touch, washing my hands for the umpteenth time today (and it's only 11 am)!

I dealt with the biggest BITCH today over the phone.

Me: Beverly Fabrics, this is Elizabeth, how can I help you?
Crazy Lady: Hi. I was in there earlier today to purchase two 3-packs of plastic scrapbooking jars and I don't have them. They're not in my bag.
Me: Oh, I'm sorry. Did they charge you?
CL: THEY'RE NOT IN MY BAG.
Me: (not wanting to press the issue in fears she will bite my head off): Oh, well I can put you on hold and I can find them for you.
CL: Well, how long are you going to take?
Me: I won't take very long...
CL: Should I just leave you my number?
Me: I can take it down just in case.
CL: *starts barking out numbers before I can even reach a pen*
Me: OK, if you like I'll just call you back. How's that?
CL: AGHDGHYHU5Y6UHTJ I THOUGHT YOU SAID YOU'D PUT ME ON HOLD.
Me: OK, well, I'll go ahead and do that.
CL: Just call me if you get back and I'm not here.
Me: Alright.

*I put her on hold and a coworker helps me find them*

Me: OK, I have them right here.
CL: WHY WEREN'T THEY IN MY BAG????
Me: I'm sorry, but I really can't tell you, I wasn't there...
CL: Well maybe you should use your brains next time. *hangs up*

I'm dumbfounded, and while venting to coworker THE BITCH CALLS US BACK.

Me: Beverly's, this is Elizabeth, how can I help you?
CL: Hi, I called earlier about the scrapbooking jars.
Me: Yes, I have them right here for you.
CL: Well, I came in just for those and I don't have them. I'll have to see if my husband can POSSIBLY make it over there. Do you have a name?
Me: I can get that from you, since I already have your number.
CL: Uh, YEAH.
Me: What's your name?
CL: It's KATE. K-A-T-E. Where will they be? Who should I ask for?
Me: They will be at the counter, just ask anyone working tomorrow and they'll be happy to help you.
CL: Well next time use your brains, I don't want my husband to have to go through all this crap. *hangs up*

Part of me wishes this were in person so she could make a total ass out of herself in front of other customers...

Just received my pink wig yesterday! My TT Barbie costume is officially complete!

I'm sooo glad I finished the dress like, a month ago. It left time to do a few last-minute costumes. I've done some fur shorts (for Jenni's "were-Jenni" costume), a satin witch cape, and an Aladdin costume.

What are all your plans for Halloween? On Friday I'm going to Monster Mash at All-Pro Pizza with Paul and some friends. On Saturday I'm going to Melanie's party at her awesome Victorian house, and probably ducking out to Cellar Door to see Shonen Knife!

Got work in about 1.5 hours. Today's the first day I busted out my Hello Kitty slippers. To celebrate I have a mug of peppermint hot chocolate. Yay. Actually I think I'm already wanting summer back...

WOW, I've been doing quite a bit of catching up with all my LJ friends and I can't believe how much I'm missing out on. And how many of you are havin' babies! Bejeebus!

I cleaned up my flist (mostly weeded out a bunch of communities) so now I can keep better track of all o' ya! Sorry, Facebook has been dominating more of my time lately. But feel free to add Elizabeth Yada to your FB friends!
