We're all mad here...

and you will fit right in. Won't you have a cup of tea with me for it is my unbirthday?

so you are probably sitting there going is there a point to this posting? yes, there is. In case you haven't figured it out I am a fan of Alice in Wonderland. With the new Tim Burton movie due to be released this year; Alice is back in popularity. I find myself in the need of a new hoodie but alas I am a picky girl. I have to have a zipper. I like both front and back designs. It's such a waste to only have a front design. As much as I love the work of Tim Burton; I honestly don't want a Alice hoodie from that movie nor do i want a Disney version on either. So to the interwebs I went to search. After an hour I gave up. Nothing was to my liking. This bring us to the real point of this post; I am going to make a series of postings about designing and making my very own hooded sweater shirt with an Alice theme.
Right now I have tons of excitement for this project but need to have time and also I need to get supplies including a plain hoodie. So far in my planing I will be using a combination of original book artwork, quotations, and some common symbols such as teacups and playing cards. I feel like the will be an evolving project as I design the front, back, sleeves, and even maybe the hood. I don't really have a sketch at this point it's more of ideas spinning in my brain. It's a start.

Another start...

so here it is January 6th and a few short hours from the 7th. So the big questions is do I have plans and goals for the new year? well, I'm not one for resolutions because those get broken before a week is out. Do I have goals? why yes, I do. I would like to increase my etsy sales...the goal of pretty much every etsy seller. One of my other goals was to make more new products. That I can actually say I have accomplished so far. I have made several new handbags. I need to list more jewelry items that I had actually made before the official start of the new year. Okay so maybe my plan should be to clone myself so I can get more done....it that are I become world ruler and add an extra month to the calendar in which case I am calling it Smarch.
