Cobwebbed Delights ^_^

I went out thrifting Saturday and I found something delightful:A wonderful little something to hold all the little baggies I ship my jewelry in:

I'm so excited about this little wonder. I love Halloween, that's when the stores begin to cater to me and put out stuff I'll use all year round. :)
And as I've said before, my Etsy shop will be open soon, so keep reading to find out when!

Lost Memories

"In our endeavors to recall to memory something long forgotten, we often find ourselves upon the very verge of remembrance, without being able, in the end, to remember."
-from "Ligeia" by Edgar Allan Poe

That, my friends, is why The Flying Skeleton is hard at work creating deliciously scrumptious picture frames to hold all your long lost memories! We stopped by a thrift store close to home yesterday and picked a couple up, we'll have before and after pictures for you soon I'm sure [and along the way pictures and in-between pictures ^_^].

The Flying Skeleton's Etsy shop will be opening very soon! I know I've been saying this for awhile, but I'm really truly serious! It's so close to being open I can almost taste it. Almost. Still have a bit of work to do, but it's close! I promise. :)

Amethyst Chips

I spent a large portion of today working with amethyst. My goodness, that stone is beautiful. It gives me so much inspiration. I have so many ideas, yet so little time and not enough supply of the stone! Hahaha. Apparently, according to gemstone lore, amethyst protects you from intoxication. In Greek mythology, the god of intoxication, Dionysus, is bothering this poor mortal! girl, and she's trying to get him off her back so she goes to all the other gods and they turn her into a white stone. Which to me doesn't sound very helpful at all, but that's just me. So Dionysus finds out and he respects her for not wanting his grubby fingers all over her, so he pours wine over the white stone that used to be her, creating amethyst.
Sounds weird.

I got these in the mail yesterday:
Oh. My. Goodness. They are SO adorable! And they definitely go with The Flying Skeleton theme [black, red, and purple.] I've been blessed tremendously and God's given me an awesome opportunity to have items up in a shop in California, and so when I ship the items out there I'll be shipping these in the baggies with the jewelry. I'm so pleased with them. They're so cute! They're incredibly small, only 1" by 5/8", but they're really smooth and the ribbons aren't too long or short...they're just perfect! I love them because they stand out and look very attractive [and again, they go with the color scheme], but they also don't compete with the actual jewelry item. If there was big ugly white tags tied to a rather small pair of earrings, you'd pass them by because the tag would overwhelm them. This way, the tags stand out on their own, but they don't overpower the jewelry in anyway, they actually help it.
This blog will be getting re-vamped soon, because TFS's logo is getting completed soon!! Woohoo! And I'll [hopefully] be listing items on Etsy from my 3 collections. Watch for that too!

Got Facebook?

The Flying Skeleton now has a Facebook page! I've been very busy creating for these past few weeks, and haven't really had time to get on and do anything social network related. But my creativity is hitting another slow patch, so I'll have more time to get on and connect! Also, be on the look out for our ArtFire and Etsy shops opening! I'll be listing items for sale on both sites, and I'll be doing so quite often.
