The Popcorn Clutch of it All


I know it's been quite a while since I've done some regular posting, but I promise it will pick back up. You know how it is... You have the very best intentions of vacuuming, washing the dishes, getting some exercise in, taking some new pictures for Etsy, and writing a new blog post about what's going in your world and then something happens.... 

Something like, you start watching Adventure Time, which can I just say is THE MOST hilarious stuff I've seen since Ren and Stimpy. Y'all 90's Snick kids know what I'm talking about!!

Holy crap! I seriously just watched 3 FULL episodes while finding a clip for you......
Hi.      My name is A. Sparkle and I have an addiction.     It's called Adventure Time.
(yeah I watched some Ren and Stimpy too. I couldn't resist!!!)

So anyways, I wanted to show you the newest sparkle baby in the family and it's name is 

I must be honest with you.... 

I.... freakin.... love.... this... clutch.... purse!!!! Not just because I'm kinda impressed with myself for making it, because that in itself is enough to blow your own mind if you had made it too, but I would sport this anywhere, anytime, in front of anyone with pride. Bam! I mean come on.... Tell me this isn't a summer fun purse!?! And just in case you were wondering, yeah those are my actual real live keys in the picture. It holds a whole host of things like a book, lipgloss, keys, a snack, cell phone, wallet, sunglasses, mints, your fake ID, just whatever man. It's small enough to not get in the way, but large enough to carry all the essentials you need for everyday on the go living. Go check it out in my shop Eclectic Oasis and if you have an Etsy account go ahead and give it a heart. I won't mind. :::: smiles sweetly ::::

Oh, by the way, if you have a Facebook page (and who doesn't nowadays) Eclectic Oasis Crochet Art is now on there too! Go check it out (---->) here (<----) and 'Like' the beejezzus out of it! Again.. I won't mind. Just sayin'.... So until the next time..

It's All about the Clutch!

Greetings hommies!

I'm SO excited to be almost ready to roll out some 'new new' for you! New as in new clutch purses being ready for my Etsy shop soon. See............

Yay for me and you!! So the story started like this...

It started out small..

Then it got a little messy after a while... Well maybe more like a lot messy for quite a few days. Yarn and scissors, and lining, oh my!

In the end though, a beautiful new sparkle baby was born!

I'm so in love with this purse, I just can't even tell you! This golden lady was inspired by another purse I saw recently. I thought about how much I would love to have a clutch of my own, so I decided to create one. Tomorrow I'm off you buy supplies to make more sparkle babies. Tell me what your favorite colors are for this summer and you just might see your new favorite item to buy in my shop. (grin)

Paradise was Found


Ok........ I have to let you know that this is about to be the laziest post you've ever seen from me. I'm for really real doing like 4 things at once right now. (i.e. commenting on Facebook, chatting on Google, watching tv, & working on a new crochet project) Now I'm blogging to you, soooooo let's make that 5 things! Gemini's know how to multitask! So in one big lump, here are the rest of the pictures from the glorious vacation. Think of it as a silent movie, but with pictures. Enjoy!

Inside the Resort.

The Room, the view, & the pool!

Cocoa Beach with family

So that in a nutshell that was the vacation. I can't wait to go back to the beach. This was the practice vacation, and now I feel like a pro. :) I'm ready to do it again! I remember when I was about 8 or 9, I saw this commercial on tv and it said 'Come to Paradise!!' I really wanted to go, b/c it looked like so much fun, so skip up to my dad and ask, 'Daddy... Can we go to Paradise??' Of course being an adult and knowing better, he was confused when I asked this question and had to explain to me that Paradise wasn't a real location. Just a word to describe somewhere really nice. I was kinda disappointed at the time, but it looks like we made it there anyway. (smile)

Summer Vacation... Day 1

Greeting all!

I am currently on vacation! 6 gloriously fun in the sun filled days in Savannah, Ga and parts of Florida. Yay!
I have to tell you that this is the first vacation I've taken, like the kinds you see of tv. You know the ones I'm talking about... You'll see a family take a vacation some where tropical and warm, they go swimming at the beach or the resort that they are staying at, and they buy ridiculously priced food and souvenirs. That kinda vacation. I'm on one and I'm loving it. :)

Day 1 started in Atlanta... Me and the rent's hopped in the car and took off down the road.

First stop was in Savannah, Georgia! I like Savannah a lot and hope to be able to spend more time there at some point. The spending of money on ridiculously high priced items started here with smell good handmade soaps. I'll be good and clean for a long long time.

Later the same day we made it to Daytona Beach.. Can I just say that out of all of the beaches I've been to thus far.. Daytona is the best! Maybe you can or maybe you can't tell, but these first two pictures are of a drive-in church......  A Drive......In..... Church!! Who knew such a thing existed!?!? I surely didn't..


Views from the room and the beach. :)

Looooooved the beach! Got to swim in the ocean and see and hear it from the balcony in our room. It was truly glorious! At some point in my life and it may only be after I've retired, but I will live near a beach. It probably won't be Daytona beach since everything seems to shut down by 10pm... Then again, if I'm retired living by the beach, I probably won't care about being out very late.

So that was day 1, and there's more pictures to follow tomorrow!
