This has been another slow week. I've just been puttering away a little tasks, but despite feeling poorly (combo of my "normal" health issues and a slight cold), I've actually managed to get a fair bit done. I did a photoshoot for the shop a couple weeks ago and am finally getting around to posting the listings. (I am going to be so glad when my friend/model moves back next year and I can use her for photoshoots again. It's just so awkward doing it by myself.) I'm about half done uploading them to Etsy and should have the rest up by the end of the week.
I've also been working on some other projects and have even started knitting again. It's been a hard year (especially health-wise), so I really needed knitting. I've discovered I can actually do some knitting, despite my hand/wrist issues, if I use square needles and only knit every-other night for less than 30 minutes. I missed knitting so much! Even doing a little bit is helping me deal with life better. I have a Edwardian sweater and a 1950's sweater on the go at the moment. The Edwardian sweater is going to take at least another year (small needles, so many stitches....), but the 1950's one should hopefully be done in a month or two.
After all that productivity, I needed a break and have been relaxing most of the weekend. However, I did get dressed up to go out for a quick coffee. Since Halloween is only a couple days away, I went with a vaguely witch-y themed outfit. I paired a thrifted dress with my What Katie Did corset, Victorian-inspired boots, and some tree earrings.
I tried to take some "flying" photos on my broomstick... Unfortunately gravity was not on my side. I did manage to time one just right, but of course I'm grinning like an idiot. I just can't seem smile nicely and "fly" at the same time.
If you follow me on Youtube you may have already seen this, but here is my lastest video. It's the first one I've been able to create since my hand-injury back in the summer. I just couldn't let Halloween slide by without making a "spooky" episode. It features hair, makeup, and some deadly beauty products of the past.
I hope everyone has a great Halloween!
