What I’ve Been Working On

The above pieces were my contribution for a craft fair that a fellow jewelry maker will have a table at. This brings me just that much closer to having my own table at a craft fair!
A custom order for matching boutonnieres for groomsmen!
Quite a few of the above pieces are already listed in my shop, and the ones that aren't will be soon!

Outfit: Spacey Girl

lace top: Goodwill, skirt: Romwe, velvet leggings: Forever 21, shoes: Report

I'm still so in love with this skirt. It's hard to pair it with things since it's completely sheer. I usually wear another skirt under it or just wear it over thick leggings. I've been trying to find black velvet leggings for awhile, and finally spotted some at Forever 21. They're soft and comfy and warm, perfect for winter! They're also thick enough to look almost like pants.

Black Friday/Cyber Monday sale at Zombot Shop!

I hope all my American readers had a wonderful thanksgiving yesterday! I decided not to brave the early-morning Black Friday crowds today as I am not a crazy person. I'd much rather peruse the interwebs for good deals and avoid being trampled to death. So, I'd like to give you guys a good deal at my little shop! 25% off your entire order with coupon code "THANKS2012". It's good until Tuesday, November 27. Go ahead and get some early Christmas shopping done at Zombot Shop. I promise you won't get pepper sprayed!

One Year Blog Anniversary!

One year ago today, I put together my first post here on 'Hey Zombot!'. I started this blog soon after I opened my Etsy shop, as a way to promote my shop and my creations. At first I mostly shared shop updates and photos of pieces I was working on. I slowly started posting more about my adventures and my personal style. It's really neat to look back and see how my blog has evolved over the past year. I've met some wonderful people through blogging and through etsy. It's really inspirational to jump on my computer everyday and see what all you lovely people out there in the blogosphere are creating, wearing, and thinking about. I just want to say THANK YOU to anyone reading my little blog. It means a lot to me that you guys take the time to stop by my little corner of the interwebs. I'm always thankful for the wonderful comments left by such awesome people.

 Thank you so much, readers and followers! Here's to another awesome year of Hey Zombot!

Outfit: pearls and lace

IMG_3882 IMG_3909   IMG_3888e IMG_3885
dress: modcloth   lace cardigan: forever 21   tights: house of holland   

I got this dress a couple months ago when modcloth was having that crazy awesome sale. It's really comfy, flowy, and silky. I'm currently in the midst of a three-day weekend, making some fresh jewelry, and editing etsy listings. I have a handful of new pieces made, but it just takes so long sometimes to photograph, edit, and list it all. Wish me luck!IMG_3901

Lovely Things

OOAK - Hand-painted Locket - Cosmos and Two Moons
An adorable locket from ginettepomette on Etsy
Cat calling.
This cat-calling comic by Seamus Gallagher cracked me up.

I've recently developed a Sailor Moon obsession. I wish I could find this insanely adorable sailor costume! If anyone knows where this is from, let me know!
Speaking of sailor dresses, these "Sea Shanty Singing" dresses from Modcloth are gorgeous.

I really want to try out this diy tutorial for temporary tattoos. It looks pretty simple!
lavender and pink
This half-pink/half-lavender hair is so perfect!

Outfit: it’s cold and I have a cold.

A ring featuring my spirit animal.
This is obviously the best rug in the world.
dress: Forever 21 leggings: Target shoes: Report  pizza ring: handmade  druzy pendant: ebay

Well, it definitely feels like winter here. It's "I can see my breath" cold out there and there's a wicked cold/flu making the rounds. I've been sick for about a week, but it's starting to go away. Somehow, I have the next four days off work, and I am so happy about that. I'm going to chillax hard and hopefully get lots of lovely jewelry made up for the shop. Christmas is coming!
This is how I really feel right now. BLECH!

October in Review

Hannah and Stacey IN SPAAAAACE
pumpkin pie, because duh, it's October. other pumpkin goodies consumed: pumpkin butterscotch pancakes, pumpkin pie vodka, pumpkin spice lattes, pumpkin butter.
Hera bust from "The Body Beautiful" exhibit at Portland Art Museum, which focused on sculptures/vases of Ancient Greece. Not pictured: way too many floppy units and man butts. 
My little sister's first two tattoos! *tear* I'm just so proud.
Whilst rearranging my bedroom in a confused effort to solve recent sleeping issues, I decided I needed a giant white paper lantern. I then decided that I should cover that lantern in all the glitter that I own. This was a terrible, beautiful idea. My entire apartment is now covered in glitter. I love/hate it so much.
I started re-reading my favorite comic series ever, Love and Rockets by the Hernandez brothers.
We spotted this near OMSI after Zombie Walk. I really love the embroidery someone stapled up high. It's a lovely autumn barnhouse scene.
We tried to dye Andrew's hair grey, but it somehow ended up blue, which is still awesome.
Yes, it appears this IS a good spot for tags.
