This set is all white washed and like the other set it took an awful lot of nails! (If I keep making these I’d need to buy stock in a nail co! LOL!)
See the pretty stuff?
Yea this post is a shameless (or shameful depending on how you look at it) plug for my etsy shop! See? I wasn’t kidding when I said the last few posts that I was busy–making stuff (see above) for etsy, and also in working on a paid commission. (More on the commission piece later this week)
Here are a couple more shots of the furniture — please feel free to browse the shop!
You have no idea how many hundreds of freaking little nails are in this set of furniture….Suffice to say I gave myself the beginnings of carpal tunnel. So I need to be a little more careful in the future about my time spent on making stuff. More breaks for my wrists. Poor wrists! :S
Ok everything is sold! Thanks everyone!
After all the hemming & hawing has been done here’s the first of the clear out sales posts: (lot of photos so please be patient!) Please be aware of the fact I am located in the UK so all shipping is going to be from there (and consequently more expensive for those who live elsewhere!). Prices of items are open to reasonable offers/negotiation (and reasonable timescale–I can hold onto a piece for a little while ie next paycheck–but not a couple of months) Prices are in GBP & payment is ok via paypal (in GBP) or if you’re in the UK via bankdraft, check or paypal. You can check the current exchange rate here All items will stay on here (the blog) until March 7th *unless sold* that gives y’all 10 days to figure out if you want any of it. After that I’ll be putting it on feebay *hence the watermarking* (If I lose all patience I might just set all on fire in the backyard. It really depends on how I feel… ) I’ll be posting the 2nd batch in another couple of weeks when I’ve completed some more culling/sorting. IF you want something or have a question: Email me! (I don’t want to clog the blog with that stuff) corsetkitten AT gmail.com ***ALL items are in played with/used condition. Most of these were bought second-hand and or pre-owned. They’ve all got dings, dents, scratches and the like.***

That’s the end of the first lot. As I said above, if you’re interested in something please email me at corsetkittenATgmail.com And I apologize for the crummy pics and watermarking (due to the last bad experience I had on ebay I now have to watermark everything I want to put on there due to phototheft).
Ok, so I took some time over the weekend to photograph the first round of fabrics to go.
Not sure if anyone’s interested in them, they’re going as lots (obviously) since I just want them out of the house (since it’s all about clearing out & divesting myself of “things”).
I uploaded them on flickr first, so you can go there to check out the details on pieces (the size of the pieces).
Just make me an offer & I’m happy. Please remember that I’m in the UK so postage is from there.
So I did the first part of this month’s shop update. (more babbling after the mini showcase below)
I have more books to list, but frankly I’m still not back to where I should be regarding patience+shooting photos. So the rest I’ll photograph this week and hopefully list next Sunday. Until then, feel free to browse, and I’m going to relax a bit and work some more on my Insanity quilt! The quilt is moving forward (albeit slowly) and I’ll try to snap some pics tomorrow of it.
Ok, so I guess the title gives it all away–what I’ve been making! You know how re-ment made that great pencil set? (the Re-Ment Favorite Stationary secret set) and how much it’s now going for online? (sick money, I tell you, siiiiiiick!)
Anyway, I’ve been slaving away making some. It’s taken me about a month and I gotta say that they are severely labor intensive….but I think they look pretty damned good.
I made 1 set so far for my dolls and two sets to put on etsy in case anyone else out there wants some for their dolls. So if you want to check em out (they ain’t cheap) you can find them here: http://www.etsy.com/shop/ckworkshop
What do you think?
Just a quick post to let y’all know I finally listed a couple of the miniature bonsai trees in my Etsy shop! They’re pricey little sprigs but hey, they took lots of time to make so it’s how it is!
Later this week I’ll be updating with some new books for the shop too, and maybe, just maybe some 1:6 clothes!
As mentioned earlier this week–I’ve got stuff for Etsy!
I’ll be updating with more stuff over the weekend! Candles & books & things!
Not wanting to forget about the action figure girls in my repainting frenzy, I decided to go to work on some of the knock offs I’d gotten. I like the Midori headsculpt and IMO its one of the nicest of the CG heads out there.
These heads are seriously over-rooted with hair. I had to try to thin it out and event hen still decided to give them boil perms to get the hair to lie down flat.
#1 Brown eyes
#2 Blue eyes
Over all I’m happy with how they turned out. They’ll be going up for sale on Etsy this weekend since even though I like them I don’t have a use for them.
As Carmen commented in my previous post yes I did manage to get a couple of things listed on Etsy yesterday evening! So if you’d like to check out my 1:6 books feel free to pop over and check out my Etsy shop.
Later this week I’ll be adding some new cupcake sets too! and 2 couches!!
Just a quick blurb (or widget) with my newer listings on Etsy.
Feel free to check em out!
Wow, stuff is selling way better than I expected!!
YAY! At last!
(I’ve only gotten 4 things up so far but I have more to follow later this weekend) Check it out if you get the chance and please add me to your favorites
At last! Things are coming together!
It looks like by tomorrow afternoon I should have some goodies listed in my etsy shop. I’m excited about this (very much so!) and hope that the photos I took today will come out well enough to use. Tomorrow I’ll post food goodies, and then if I can manage it, some of the other props I have made & ready to go (books, plants etc).
Keep an eye out! I’ll post as soon as I have stuff!!
Ok!!! Here’s the first couple of lots I’ve managed to take photos of. We’ve got furniture, props, and more furniture.
Click the image for a larger version. Any questions just ask or email me.
Shoe Racks (the orange is a 2 piece set, the grey is a 3 piece set) Shoes, dolls & room-sets are not included)
Weird Robots (for 1:6)
More Furniture: Tables, Chairs etc.
So thats it for now until I take some more photos!
Yep. I’m still around…I’m making slow progress on the furniture sorting. I suppose I should just be glad I’m making progress though. It’s been hard to go through the boxes of furniture and to be brutally honest with myself about what I want to keep vs. what I need to keep.
I think it would bother me less if I knew I had no use for the stuff. They’re all items that I planned on priming and then repainting so they’d look good and/or fit in with my vision of certain room sets.
Anyway, maybe over the weekend I’ll get around to snapping some photos and posting them here for y’all to see. If I don’t get any reasonable offers then I’ll flog them on the boards. Ugh. Make me offers folks. seriously.
Yes. I have acquired a mess of “stuff” that I won’t be taking it with me when I go (to the states, not the here-after of death). I’m going to begin separating the stuff this week and I figure it will probably take me about 2 weeks.
I’m going to ditching the following stuff:
- 1:6 furniture
- 1:6 props
- I may ditch a few of my dolls/figures as well but I’m not sure at this point.
The majority of stuff is likely to be the doll furniture & varied props. I want to narrow it down from 13 A4 sized paper boxes (furniture/props) to about 3 max. The doll/sewing fabric needs to get whittled down from an over abundant 10 boxes to whatever I could comfortably fit into a smallish suitcase.
Yea, I know I’ve spent the last 3 years collecting this stuff—but—most of it isn’t special enough for me to go through the hassle of
1) shipping it home
2)incurring the cost and expense of crating it home. (This is an ongoing dialogue between M & myself about what we really NEED to take with us vs. what’s “habit”. Hey I can easily & freely admit I’m a pack rat, but M has a problem (although he has 40 yrs worth of stuff spread between here and his folks place). Besides, I believe the occasional re-boot/total clear out is good for the soul.
After all, at the end of the day, it’s just stuff.
SOOOOoooooooooooo…..If anyone is looking for anything in specific (furniture/props/fabric) post a message and let me know. If I’ve got it I’ll let you know what I’m after (more than likely just a few bucks+postage)
I’m not doing a whole lot at the moment w/ relation to making things for the 1:6 hobby. With that said, I am still working on my photostory scripts (I managed to write another scene this week which makes me happy).
I think I may be taking a mini break from the actual customization process until some things here level out. Plus, I need to overhaul my “craftroom-office” since we hope to get the house on the market next month and in its current state no one will be impressed. (It really IS that bad looking at the moment. Fabric, dolls, heads, re-ment, books, clothes etc have exploded all over the place).
But I’m here, and as I work on things I’ll post them here. (I may also post some stuff that I am planning on getting rid of (mostly doll furniture and clothes etc).
Before I go and post this up on the boards, I thought I might as well post it here on my blog. (after all, anyone who reads this might as well get a break, right? LOL) If you see something you want drop me an email at corsetkittenATgmail.com
What I’ve got on offer:
CY girl or PB / triad heads: (no body included just the head)
2 tall FR bodies (these were from LD Kyori)
2 tall FR MB bodies (from MC Ayumi & one of the Erins)
