I do not want to die...
until I have faithfully made the most of my talent
and cultivated the seed that was placed in me
until the last small twig has grown.

What's she doing?!?!

Lack of space is my big problem. there is very little room for sewing and crafting. now I've made up my mind to this impossible task of reorganizing everything. my desk is ladden with things, supplies, tools... and I am trying to move them onto shelfes. they end right under the ceiling but still...

dear Santa, I do need a whole room to myself, BIG one!!!
it' s not going to happen, is it?

ok, I am back to boxing, stacking and labeling in my teeny-weeny nutshell.

Beauties Wearing Sillycut's Creations

I said so... I would make more of those painting-photo-sillycut-item-combinations.
This is really a cool method when no models are at hand. the mannequin I have is
headless and therefore isn't always in the mood for atmospheric pictures...

Etsy Item Photo as Art

Definetely, if I'd time I would perpare all my photos for item listings on etsy like that one. I combined an old vanitas paiting with the photo of my item on the mannequin. this turned out so cool, I just had to share this. Tell me, does this attract more viewers? anyway its so much fun to do this - there will be more.
As a matter of fact I'll make this a sillycut trademark ;)

Nothing's Better Than a Happy Customer

A few months ago I made this very special and ooak necklace. It's quite insane with its skelies of conjoined twins and watch parts on a huge fabric heart. yet alltogether it came out quite aesthetic and this wonderful person actually bought it, yay!!! thank you, Vicki! You look adorable! here's your appreciation photo you sent me:

What a mess!

So folks, this is where it all happens... all those silly things I am making for the shop.
And it's all the space I have. I am cramped! indeed I am dreaming of a whole room for myself. Right now I can only occupy part of our dining room. I hate it :/
At least there's a big window so I have enough light...
I am actually a very tidy person.... well, as long as I'm not starting creating anything ;D
