Free Time Rules

I've had a lot more free time on my hands recently and have finally be able to start on some projects I've been aching to do for like YEARS now. It's been great!! Seriously. My current goal is to complete one large project a week (in addition to my weekly creative jewelry load). This will including sewing projects (such as custom clothing, ornaments, plushies and more!),  jewelry holders and art boxes. And most of it will be for sale in my shop Sinsperations! []

All new and currently NOT FOR SALE items will be posted to my facebook account for your viewing pleasure. And if you see something you like and just gotta have perhaps we can work something out. ;)

Anyways, here's a quick look at some of the things I've been working on...

First up is my all time favorite art box: "Kewpie's Sweets Emporium" By: Allison Franks

Isn't it amazing?? Painting those red and white stripes took forever!! But I think it turned out perfect! Thank you masking tape. ;) Oh and it's hard to tell from the photo but the inside of the box was not only painted pink, but it has a thick coat of glitter on it too so the whole box shimmers in the light. As for the inside of the box, I had fun decorating it like mad! I used both new and vintage items to create this and my favorite piece is the ice cream puzzle in the front! I can't stop playing with it. Hope you enjoy it as much as I do. - NOT FOR SALE

Next up are my super cute Pacman Ornaments! By: Allison Franks

I love these so much I just might have to make myself some! So far I've make Pacman and three of the ghosts: Pinky, Inky and Clyde. Right now I'm selling them individually via Sinsperations, but soon when I finish Ms. Pacman and Blinky I will also be selling all of them together as a set. Each ornament is hand-sewn using high quality felt, stuffing and blue polka dot ribbon. I can also make smaller versions of these to be used as key-chains, brooches and even hair accessories! All you have to do it ask. ;)

Anyways, that's all for now. Keep an eye out for custom jewelry holders! I've already started on two of 'em and I'm also working on this amazing zombie themed art box. More on that later. (heheh)


  1. Ok Im seriously seriously in love with the kewpie! You should consider making some for your shop ..because I think you could sell the shit out of them!!!

  2. awww thank you so much Vanessa!! This is actually the first of many more to come. I'm still torn on whether I want to sell this one...because I'm also in love with it! I'll definitely keep you updated on any more kewpie/cute doll boxes I make. You are so sweet! ;)

    1. Thanks Allison :)
      if you make more you can post them in the teams thread ( they count as a vintage toy )

  3. Awesome! Thanks Vanessa! I will be sure to do that. I'm working on a couple "gothic" pieces right now...but hope to do more kewpies once I'm finished. Will keep you posted. ;)
