I bought these beads YEARS ago and never took the time to do anything with them. I finally started using them on my Pink Pastry Weepuls, but I was excited to put them on a sugar cookie brooch! The hand-sewing kind of took forever but was very mind-numbing and relaxing! I wish I could rock them on a scarf, but that would be WAY too scratchy. Anyway, I put this brooch and 4 other heart-shaped sugar cookie pins up on My Etsy shop a few minutes ago.
I also wanted to share this sweet bag with you! I picked it up when we went to the Loyal Army sample sale.
I haven’t worn it out yet because I’m lazy about switching out purses, but it’s really roomy and I can shove all kinds of crochet work in there, too! I love it!
I kind of got tsk-tskd by my licensing agent when I met with him for coffee the other day because I was full on loaded up with Loyal Army gear. I am not in the mindset yet to see a brand like that as a competitor to me because….they have a store and a kajillion fans and what not, but then I got scared that I was a walking billboard for another brand. Is that bad?
What are your thoughts on wearing your own brand? I know that band dudes don’t like to wear their own band tees, but what about wearing your own handmade? Your own screenprinted tees? Totally un-cool, or totally smart advertising? Discuss!
