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…

Smells like an impending finish.

That’s right! I’m finally almost finished with Flitwick! It really hasn’t taken that long (I did one whole page yesterday) but I kept not working on it. At least now I’m about a few hours’ work away from finishing the main stitching. I’ve been thinking about adding some embroidered and backstitched pine needle effects to…

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…

Weekly Roundup #3

This post does NOT contain affiliate links. Just regular links to the products I’m using.   This week will be a little short on the list of things I’m enjoying. It’s mostly been clay. Yes, clay. I’ve worked with clay many times before, but I’ve been doing something a little different. It actually started back up…

Body image and self hate

This week I’m going to talk about body image. My body image. Also the self hate that develops when you don’t love your body as it is. I know my body has been different from most people in my age group since I was a kid.  I’ve had a wider rib cage than my friends…

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…

Weekly Roundup #2

This post contains affiliate links. If you click on one, I get five cents.   First and foremost I am loving a new (to me) book.  Monster High novel #2, The Ghoul Next Door by Lisi Harrison. You’ll need to read the first book before picking up this one, if you haven’t already, but I’m just…
