~* The Latest of the Greatest Creations and a New Segment for the Garden Lovers *~
Aloha and welcome back, friends! I kindly thank you for tuning in, and, please please, don’t mind the gap between the last post date and this one >.> It’s been quite a past year (year?), but I am officially back. Now, let’s party.
In the Name of the Moon, I shall… Either compose a letter or pretty up my face! :p
We all know I’m a weirdo, right? Right. Well my weird self loves goofy hair things too, and while I am not brave enough to dye it anymore (shouts out to all you peeps with cool hair), I am resourceful enough to still make it quirky, and what better than incorporating Sailor Moon into the mix?
Now see, I have this habit of sticking a pen in my hair, and one day the light bulb went off… Moonstick Pen. After multiple attempts wrestling with clay and a hollow pen, and much hair pulling, I finally perfected the Moonstick Pen.
A few days ago, I got a message on Etsy asking about a custom order for a Moonstick make up brush. When this order came in, I was floored because it was such an ingenious idea, and is why I have to give a shout out and thanks to my new friend Catherine. She’s got really cool taste in make up and kawaii accessories, check her out on Instagram. I bet we will be seeing some more collaborations in the near future. 🙂
And now for a side journey.
Let’s back up to the past a bit. After I had made enough Moonstick pens that I didn’t want to touch them for a while, I came up with another idea for a pen. This one, though, is not suited for sticking in hair buns. Iiiiiit would snag a little.
I wanted to make a pen that looked like a whimsical celestial piece of art. I believe I accomplished that feat, now, taking pictures of dark objects with only light backgrounds, not exactly my forte’, so don’t mind the contrast here -_-;; Still learning how to use my camera, folks.;
These are just a couple of fun charms for a purse or backpack, incorporating my favorite things and just enough bling. Do people still say that..bling?
These purse charms are so much fun to make, I hope they can find a good home soon. They, will everything else above, will be in the Etsy shop within a few days.
Moving on to our new segment, How’s that Garden Lookin’ Lately?
And this is How the Garden is Lookin’ Lately.
Thank you for keeping with me for this whole post, it’s been fun leading up to this moment.
Not only do I love to create with crafts, I also love making places beautiful with nature, growing plants, watching seeds sprout before your very eyes. It’s a magical thing to behold, the evolution of plants and the area which they inhabit. I would like to share with the readers, friends, families, and newbies, the best place to sit back, enjoy time with friends, and sip on a nice cold beverage, DecoJenn’s Garden.
It’s got a few different little “areas”, per say. Today’s tour will feature the most grandiose and exquisite of them. But first, here is the view from my “living room chair”.
Thank you for your patronage and see ya soon ^_^ … for real this time ….
P.S. Hi Cam!!!! *waves*
!.:.*Cafe Official Sneak Peak*.:.!
Hi everyone! *waves* Today I have some super exciting pictures to share, so let’s get right to it!
The lighting varies because I spent over 2 hours trying to get it right. The top picture seems to look the best, now if I can just remember which settings I used to acheive that look ^-^”
In the first and second pictures, I used the same small table, but I am not sure if the table looks better with or without the cloth. What do y’all think? I like the small thickness for seating and the long for displaying cakes. too bad I have only one of that particular table.
The third picture has a tea set with a cake roll to the left, and the first picture features the same one. The cake is a cell phone charm, as you can see with the string in the tea cup. :p Anyways, the whole point of this major project is making a nice scene to display the little cake charms, particularly to sell them. I am not sure if it looks better with the tea set (might be washed out with too much white), or alone on the table for two. Oh, the major decisions in life.
As always, feedback is welcomed and appreciated, even though no one really leaves comments anymore *sad face*.
Have a nice day, and stay dry this weekend to all the locals!
DecoJennDotCom: Back from the Dead (or so it seems :p)
Hi everyone out there in Bloglandia! Once again I am here with one of those “sorry it’s been so long” posts, so please allow me to get the excuses and apologies out of the way. Let’s see… what works as good excuses… I’ve been busy with work? Busy with the Etsy store? Too lazy to use the old camera and upload pics? Yes, I will use those. 😉
After the last few months of fighting with the supercamera, I finally got a new one with which I can more easily take quality pictures. Now, if only I could figure out the lighting situation. Outside is too bright, inside is too flourescent dim, feelin’ like Goldilocks up in here. :p I am thinking about dragging my set up to the park and making use of their picnic tables and shade. Too bad I can’t bring the cat too. He is my most fequently photographed subject, much to his dismay.
Recently, I have also been working on repainting a bright pink, dollhouse type bakery into a swanky, pseudo victorian lounge cafe. The project is slowly coming along, emphasis on the slowly, as it is quite tedious work with the tiny details and cramped corners. Also, I have been repainting dollar store dollhouse furniture to match the cafe. After the paint job, I will pick out some new curtains. :p
Thanks for stoppin’ by, more to come soon. For real this time!
¡¡ Long Overdue Update !! – Sweets yaaaay!
This is the third of the update posts, I saved the best for last ^_^ Before continuing though, I just want to say thanks again for coming back, and don’t worry, I won’t do a triple update like this again any time soon ^_^;; Without further ado, on with the show!
The following pieces you can find for sale on my newly opened Etsy shop!! :DD
Next time I hope to have some Sailor Moon stuff, seeing as how it’s been so popular thus far, and quite frankly I heart making those items as much as cakes. Ciao! (￣▽￣)ノ＿彡☆バンバン！!
** Update 04/11/14 **
^_^ Hi everyone! Sorry it’s been so so long!! It’s been super busy around here with Spring time rearranging, experimenting cooking new dishes (if people are interested in blogs on my homemade vegetarian cuisine meals, lemme know and I will start making recipe posts), and learning how to make new craft stuff!!
Coming soon, we have TONS of resin pieces, lots of chibis, and a few food items that are super cute!
Also next week I plan to get an Etsy shop up and running. Many many folks have asked if I have one, so there will be a store soon due to popular demand! 🙂
I hope everyone has a lovely weekend and thanks for checking back at DecoJenn 😀
✿✿ New Sweets are here :) ✿✿
(^-^*)/ｺﾝﾁｬ! Sorry I haven’t updated in a long time. Been pretty busy with all this real life stuff. Anyways, on with the show!
I meant to upload images of a couple ice cream cones I made. One of them looks very very real ^_^. But, the stupid camera didn’t focus right on the ice cream cones, so they will have to be retaken. They deserve their own post as it is.
Thanks for checking out the latest from the sweets factory. (^ _ ^)/~~サヨナラ
❤❤ A Few Cookies ❤❤
These are the last of my latest batch of cookies. I need to make more >.< But I have been too preoccupied making Sailor Moon things. Anyways, check em out
Next time on DecoJenn Cookie Edition we will have some fresh baked, scented Oreos. This will probably be beginning of next week since it is Friday already. *dances* FRIDAY YAY
hope you all have a good weekend!
♛♛ The long-awaited, much anticipated, Oreo Cookies!! ♛♛
After having to, unfortunately (jk), eat through a few Oreos to get the perfect mold, then learning my lesson about leaving Oreos out overnight, after that fighting with getting the cookies out of the molds, I have finally got some Oreo sandwiches up.
There are two kinds: Ones that look more realistic and ones that look like little Oreo cakes. My favorite is the … wait I’m not gonna say! Y’all lemme know if you think the creme cookies look cooler, or the classic Oreo. ｢(ﾟﾍﾟ)
Click images to see that up close, Oreo goodnessy detail.
BRB Gonna go eat Oreos! Ohhhh I gotta finish my lunch first tho (mmmm mac n cheese).
On the next edition of Oreos, we will have containers with Oreo lids!
Oh, I forgot to mention earlier that these particular charms are scented like Oreos! Please do not eat them X_X
♥♥ Cookies ♥♥
This has to be my favorite item to make thus fan. After finally getting the frosting down by learning the art of patience AND cake design, I have been able to craft some really interesting(?), but cute, cookies and cookie cakes. 楽しむ!!
Please click on the images to make them larger!
Being that cookies are my fav to make, there will be more creations before you can figure out how to spell supercalifragilisticexpialadocious!
