The things I find and buy …

Halloween 2017 Wishlist

People are stepping up their Halloween game this year with some truly spooktacular swag. I’m not made of money, so I haven’t been able to buy nearly as much as I’ve wanted to. Here are some of my favorite Halloween 2017 offerings; I hope you enjoy!

Halloween Bundle on Nicolle’s Dreams – This kawaii witch charm and planner sticker set was too cute for me to pass up. A must-have! She also has really cute zodiac charms and stickers available.

Halloween Exclusives 2017 on Fiendies – Planchettes, spirit boards, and tote bags in the Fiendies signature style. I especially like the Arcane Arachne Planchette and Spirit Board Set though note, as a witch, I do not recommend working with spirit boards.

Halloween Party Collection and Monster Mash Collection by Sharodactyl – This year Sharodactyl has made two awesome Halloween-inspired collections. I bought the Bat Crepe pin, the Halloween Party pack, and the Ghost Float pin; they are all really high quality, too.

Hatsune Miku Trick or Miku – One of the few Hatsune Miku items I own is a Halloween sculpture and I absolutely love it. This figure is stunning and pretty pricy ($150), but makes an amazing piece of Halloween decor. I have never gotten into the expensive statue collecting scene, but were I to, this would be my gateway piece.

Witchy Drops Enamel Pins by Colourfy Me – This is the image up top! This is a really cute set of three enamel glitter pins in the shape of teardrops. They have a matching unicorn set that’s adorable, too.

I hope all of you are having a fun Halloween pre-game! Let me know if there’s anything new this season that you just couldn’t resist.

Handmade Reviews: Feverworm’s Dark Fairy Tale Stickers and Eye Buttons

Feverworm Etsy Purchases

Today I wanted to do something a little different. As a handmade seller and doll collector it is super important to me to be a part of supporting the community that supports me. Because of that I love buying handmade items and I thought it would be a nice to post mini reviews here.

Above is a package that I got a few days ago from Etsy seller feverworm. It came in two little orange and white bags and had a business card and an awesomely creepy possum sticker. I think it’s just me, but I really love it when sellers put a handwritten note in their packages. It’s something I always do, and it just adds the personal touch you want when you buy handmade. I bought their Fanciful Gaze 1.5″ pinback buttons ($4) and their Little Red and Alice sticker duo ($2). Their shipping was reasonably priced and reasonably fast so I’m not going to go into it.

Their creepy chibi Little Red Riding Hood and Alice (in Wonderland) stickers were what made me click “buy” in the first place. They don’t have the feel of professionally printed stickers to me, as in they don’t seem to be vinyl, but they are still nice quality. Oddly, the possum sticker was professionally printed. The illustrations themselves are so creepy cute, Alice’s red eyes and Red’s taupe skin are really nice touches. I can’t wait to get yelled at by my IT guy for sticking these on my laptop.

Review: Hug a Porcupine Enamel Rock Necklace

This turquoise and cream carved rock necklace by Hug a Porcupine had been on my wishlist for ages before I finally got around to ordering it, but I’m so glad I did. It’s about $31 USD as of the time of writing and I think it’s definitely worth the price. The enamel pendant is bordered by gold and it’s absolutely charming. I confess that I’m a huge sucker for enamel though. The only complaint I have is that it’s fixed to the chain so you can’t adjust the length at all and the clasp is so tiny I need help putting it on. It’s really beautiful though and the pendant is much larger than I expected from the photos, plus the quality is great. I plan on picking up more from their shop in the future!

Kookizu’s Kitty Kei Necklace is Adorable

Kookizu's Kitty Kei Necklace

Yeah, I said it, adorable. Too cute for words, even! I had to take some photos of the sweetness in the package. Thank you to Kookizu for sending it my way (we talked about design stuff some and she sent it to me because she’s a doll), I love it.

I actually have a huge soft spot for enamel jewelry so I’m hoping so hard that she keeps adding pieces like this to her ever-expanding line. We can hope! So what do you think of enamel jewelry?
