Etsy Treasury East...Interesting Concept

By now you've all heard of Etsy's new Treasury East, that allows everyone to make treasuries that never expire, any time you want. I like the idea, but I do think they should expire after a certain amount of time and there should be a limit as to how many T Easts a shop can create. Otherwise, I feel as though everyone will try to promote their treasuries like crazy in order to get noticed...and with the abundance of T Easts, they'll get buried quickly. With that said, for a little while, there wasn't a way to tell if you were in any T Easts or not, until now. There was a link that was active, and has since been removed, however, Craftopolis has updated their site with another feature where you can type in your shop name and see which T Easts you appear in, if any. Here's the link:

Spam Spam Spam

I had a lovely morning trying to figure out why my mom's email was sending out spam to everyone. Think I got it figured out, hopefully it was a one-off and it won't happen again. If it does, then I'll delve into it more but I hope I won't have to. *fingers crossed*

Other than's a newbie I posted yesterday, a fun "Sorry...closed" sign resin pendant. I think it's pretty funny. Click the picture to be taken to the listing!

New Stuff!

In the midst of lots going on, I've been able to make a few new things. I've been making lots more resin pieces and finished a few that I am REALLY happy with. The heart is kind of an "oops" because there are 2 pieces of glitter in it that shouldn't be there, but it's still cute. I'm partial to all the sign pieces!
Additionally, the felt pieces are of a nesting doll/matryoshka and one of the well known "We Are Happy to Serve You" takeout coffee cups.

I did get my very first resin piece listed on Etsy today, just click the picture to be taken to the listing!

In the middle of what was a relaxing Easter Sunday, we were all sitting around enjoying the day when the earthquake hit. Well, at that point, my mom and brother were in the backyard, I was in the house and my dad was upstairs. Being a California native, I'm used to little shakers and can usually sit here and just wait until they're over, but this one was MUCH bigger. After about 6 seconds of progressively worse shaking and rolling, I ran to a doorway and stood there until it was over.
Luckily nothing broke or anything, but every so often I'll be passing by a room and see a picture askew on the wall or something on a shelf that fell over.

At first, it was categorized as a 6.9 earthquake; they usually downgrade them afterward, but this time it was upgrade to a 7.2!

They've been showing similar video on the news quite a bit, this one is from one of CNN's ireporters, showing water splashing out of someone's pool!
