My Shop is Finally Open!

Hi My Lovely Starfishies!!

My little storenvy shop is finally open and you can purchase away! I’ve got vampire stickers, pastel goth stickers, hipster stickers, and many more kawaii cute oozing with sugary sweetness, products! I tried my best to create characters that would be as diverse as the lovely people like you all that enjoy my artwork and other creations. ^_^ I’m already starting some new sketches for future sticker ideas, too. I have a couple dolls that are not available yet, but should be at some point. (Not sure when just yet.) I’m sorry. I know you all may have been waiting for the dolls, but the stickers are much easier to get ready for shipping and stocking into the shop as well as putting all of their information on the website.

SHEETS PIC2

As you can see, above I offer sticker sheets for your stationary needs. You can stick these on your letters to your pen pals, you can stick them on your favorite notebook or sketchbook, or simply save them as collectibles.

Also, my friend Jen Lawson helped me design the Rapunzel character and the red headed girl. She did a lovely job on Rapunzel’s hair, especially.

The other stickers especially made to be car decals. I have a couple of them on my car right now, actually, and they’ve been holding up awesomely! :)

Most of the car decals come with a premask you can see above and below. The premask helps aid you in applying the decal to your car window. All you have to do is pull the backing off the back of the sticker, stick it where you want it to be positioned, and pull of the top layer — the premask! Easy-peasy.

PREMASK PHOTO

Above you can see where the backing comes off easily when there’s a premask on the front. Then you can stick the back of the sticker directly where it needs to go, and pull the premask right off after that! :) I LOVE these!

Here are a few more examples of stickers in the shop currently, but there are several more! Better hurry before they sell out!!

As you can see, a few do not have a premask. These are for people who would rather just have the backing only. Those are for people who either plan to never stick the sticker and just want it for collecting or if they are really good at placement without premask.

In other news, a few weeks ago I posted my Frequently Asked Questions video on YouTube. Check it out below if you would like to see it:

Thanks so much for watching and I hope you all have a lovely sweet day!! <3

Tutorial Tuesday #2: When Cookie Cups Don’t Work

Hi My Lovely Starfishy Friend-pies,

I saw a picture on Pinterest showing chocolate chip cookie cups for putting your ice cream in! I wanted to try it, so I did try it. However, I failed miserably. Below is what happened…

  1. First, I put some cooking spray on an upside-down muffin/cupcake pan.
  2. Then I grabbed some cookie dough out of the container and into my hand.
  3. You have to shape it in a ball first, of course, I failed at this, so it doesn’t really matter for this tutorial…haha
  4. Flatten the dough out.
  5. See? All flat.
  6. Next I put the chocolate chip cookie dough on the upside-down pan cup. (I did two cookie cups.)
  7. I tried to form it in the cup shape like the end-result pictures I saw. This was a big mistake. My suggestion is to put less cookie dough on the pan than you think you’ll need, but remember, I DID NOT test this method. Remember, I failed…
  8. Oooops! They came out like this. Too much cookie dough and it ran down the sides WAY more than I expected. Trial and error, folks. That’s what happens sometimes.
  9. So we decided to crush up the chocolate chip cookie cups into chunks.
  10. Then, we put them in the blender.
  11. Then we added milk.
  12. Next, we took some neapolitan ice cream…
  13. & we put it in the blender, too.
  14. Add however much ice cream you like, but don’t overload your blender.
  15. Blended.
  16. Served.

What do you all think? I guess I should have followed an actual tutorial to do the cookie cups, but I thought they would be easy. Well, let’s just say the kitchen isn’t the room I spend much time in…

Hope you enjoy your chocolate chip cookie chunk neapolitan milk shakes! Below is a funny/cute/crazy video for your enjoyment:

Hearts & Stars,
