Spirited Away Dress


Has it been over a year since my last outfit post? Probably longer. I'm going to slowly start to creep in once in awhile just to share a few things. I occasionally still post on IG though.

I got this dress about two weeks ago from Hot Topic because of a sale going on. I managed to pick up two more dresses that I may photograph later. Spirited Away is one of my favorite movies and I love No Face. Couldn't stop myself from getting it.

This dress normally goes for $59.90 but I scored it for $36. Looks like you can get it for even cheaper at $25 now.

There were mixed reviews on the website but looks like all are missing. I match to the larger set of measurements on a size Small. I fit decent in the dress. It's a form fitting dress so I have to step into it haha. The downsizes: this waistband has no stretch and the arms are slightly tight. A size up might be way more comfortable to wear!

Favorite Logo Designs for Fiverr Clients

It's been a while since I posted because things keep coming up! I'm trying to do so many things. Here are some logos I created for clients via Fiverr since my last logo post. I usually create 2 or 3 ideas for them to choose from based on the information they provide. 

Sometimes I'll get clients that know exactly what they want down to the font, hex codes, and layout. However, I'm usually only given a basic idea such as font style or colors they like or even just their blog or website URL and then I have to come up with a concept based on what I think would work best.

Here are some of my favorites:

I love this one because it's so simple yet adorable because of the brush style font and the tiny heart!

This logo was inspired by Lolita Fashion, elegant and cute with lots of pink and a scalloped lace design.

Another simple design with hand-drawn wings & a lovely brush font in a blue, purple, and pink gradient.

Another scalloped design but with a simple vector hamster & house design.

A simple watercolor bee with red heart wings. During the concept stage, I like to go with the font style originally requested and sometimes I'll take a chance and add another variation with a completely different font... Turns out the client loved this one for a square format!

I haven't worked on logos in about a month or so due to my busy schedule. I'm working on my amigurumi pattern book, the www.AmigurumiBox.com website (which is like a pattern marketplace and more), trying to write my novels, crochet for fun, and blah blah blah. I had to put my gig on hold. I was thinking about moving from Fiverr to my own website eventually... but the Fiverr order system is so convenient. 

Design Inspiration: Sophia Font


Sophia by Emily Spadoni is one of my favorite fonts. It's an adorable hand-lettered brush typeface perfect for a variety of projects! I especially love the ornamental fonts (Sophia Left and Sophia Right) which enable you to add a decorative swirl at the beginning and end.

Here is something I made using this lovely font:

More Jewelry + FotoFuze for photo editing!

I was making quite a bit of jewelry months ago and it took me a while to get around to taking photos of them with my DSLR. I listed some of these in our new Tiny Moon shop on Storenvy.

I love these blue howlite beads look with the pearls. I'm probably going to make different color versions of this later.

Pastel oreo cookie earrings made by Crissy out of polymer clay. I only added some ear wires to them!

I'm obsessed with these amethyst stones so I'm always trying to not use them all at once! ;)

Blueberry cupcake ring made by Crissy out of polymer clay and it is modeled by my 4-year-old monkey. 

Wire wrapped elephant pendant and various glass beads with dyed howlite beads!

A "slave bracelet" with turquoise stone beads.

I'm probably going to do some more wire wrapping soon. Maybe some rings!


I edited these photos using FotoFuze. It's a free product photography enhancement application that removes distracting elements from the background and gives you a crisp plain background. 

I really like using it when I don't feel like using Photoshop (or when I just don't have access to it because I'm on a different computer!) so I'm always looking out for great browser-based photo editing programs. 

For best results, photos should be taken on a white or black background that is as texture-less as possible. I took my photos on a dark brown table that had a bit of texture to it and it worked well enough.

You can sign up via your Etsy account and grant the application access to your Etsy account to directly edit photos from your listings. Or you can just do what I did and create an account on FotoFuze and upload your photos into the application instead.

To select the product from the background, you use the yellow highlighter tool by coloring over all of the object. It needs to be entirely filled in or it won't render correctly. They have a "check for errors" box right next to your image that shows red on the possible problem areas. You can also use the eraser tool if you selected too much or on the wrong area. 

Another nice feature is that you can highlight some of the shadows behind the product and those will show up in your new fancy background. 

Do you have any favorite browser photo editing programs? I also like using Pixlr for basic retouching.

Etsy Shop Feature: KicaBijoux

It's been a while since I posted an Etsy shop feature. I'm always looking out for unique goodies on Etsy and I love to help out indie shops by sharing their items. I'm going to try to do a weekly post on my finds and I'm giving the shop owners an opportunity to share a bit more about their shops such as their crafting process, upcoming projects, and special sales.

This week's feature is on the magical designs by Kasia of KicaBijoux. Beautiful copper wire wrapped jewelry with lovely stones and unique beads. Many of the designs have a nice woodland and rustic feel to them. It's impossible to pick only a few favorites!!

I love the wire design of the Elvish Necklace!

I like the simplicity of the Blue Agate Ring. Isn't the blue striking?

I love the shape and all the little design elements of the Bohemian Dangle Earrings.

The color is gorgeous! Forest Fluorite Drop Necklace

I really like how these Pink Boho Earrings have an antique look to them.

The different colors and texture go so well together! Green Jasper Necklace

The Elvish Forest Earrings have such a lovely intricate design.

 Moonstone Ring

This Moonstone Ring is so beautiful!!

Check out the many other items from KicaBijoux and follow her on Facebook and Instagram to keep up to date with new products.
