Disney Stitching

I have Disney stitching to show you today! First, let me get something out of the way. I did not post last week because of a problem with the website. I swear, this thing can be more trouble than it’s worth sometimes lol. I am trying to stay consistent on my postings, but sometimes it’s…

Maynia: week one

Hey guys! This is only a partial update, since the full one is on my website. So far in Maynia, I’ve started five projects, and finished two.   The finishes are: Snuggle Demons (a cute little pattern with two ghosts, and a funny saying) and To the Moon and Back (a sweet one from DMC, I…

Flitwick, finished

This past week, I finished two patterns. The first was a commissioned piece for a friend based off of the anime Black Butler. Here’s what it looks like:   The second, which I admit I’m far more proud of, is one I designed for the shop and is based off of Harry Potter. Here’s Professor…

Welcome!

Hello everyone, and welcome to my brand new website! I’m Amber, the Witchy Woman. I’ll be here, making posts about my crafting, cooking, and life in general. I’m also setting up shop here in addition my Etsy store. Please be patient with me as I set everything up, and I hope you enjoy your stay!

Family Issues.

Let’s talk family issues. Please be aware, I do not intend this to sound like ‘poor me, life is so unfair’. I intend this post to show some of the goings on in a bad family, and what results from what amounts to adult sibling rivalry.   My sister (who we’ll call K) says I…

Paint, and covered in glitter

Firstly, the small update about the cross stitching. I really haven’t done much this week. I know, I know! I’m falling behind schedule!  At least Flitwick is almost half done. Here’s what I’m working on for it now: Lately, though, I have been working on my clay creations. If you didn’t read the weekly roundup from…

A little goes a long way

Okay, I admit I haven’t done much stitching this week. It’s been one of those ‘do as little as possible now to avoid burnout later’ kind of weeks. That said, I’ve done most of page one on Flitwick. It’s working up pretty fast so far. I’m a little surprised his hair took a little less…

People who cause depression

I won’t go into full details here, but let’s talk about people who cause or exacerbate depression.   I said before that my home life isn’t good, and that I wanted to get away from it. It’s because I have a mentally abusive family. Sure, sometimes they’re nice. Sometimes they’re even pleasant. Mostly they like…

Crafting with depression

I am a crafter. I have depression. The two mix a lot. In a way, they also don’t mix. I’ll give you an example. Two days ago, I started a new pattern. It’s something that would normally take me 4 hours at most to stitch up. It’s really quick and small but with this recent bad…

Can I get this finished today?

I’ve been working on Evening in The Shire so much this week that I really only have a few hours’ worth of work left on it. The bottom right corner is the only area that needs back stitching now, and I’m excited to finish it. I’m aiming to get it done before tonight’s new episode…
