Running low on soap? Ever give handmade soap a try?? Mmm... I love handmade soap so much I don't think I'll ever buy store-bought soap again. I've tried these and LOVE them! These soaps were all bought on ETSY.
I've been soooooo busy brainstorming new ideas and making new items and I am so excited to finally be offering them in my ETSY shop! I've got so many new designs that I can't wait to create... it's going to be fabulous~ I promise you that!
This morning I woke up and read a convo by ETSY seller and Flickr-whore BOOPSIEDAISY. She ordered a Triple-Sweet ring from me a few weeks ago and just received it. Me, being her number one fan, had to create something *extra* special for her... so I made her a custom Boopsie necklace. I'm so glad she loves it and I'm so honored that she ordered some of my resin bling. I'm pretty sure I pissed myself with excitement when I saw the order from her too! Thank you soooooooooooo much BoopsieDaisy!
I also ordered one of her super-duper awesome handmade dolls last weekend- Dunkin Donna. I am super excited about owning one of her handmade creations... totally thrilled. :O)
I've been so busy working on new stuff I've neglected my poor blog for a week! OOPS! Here are some of the latest and greatest things I have created! Many of these are available in my ETSY shop right now and some are coming soon... plus much much more!
As a lover of green, candy, dogs, and poop... I was immediately drawn to this adorable shirt made by ETSY seller applenoggin. I have been wanting to make a purchase from her shop for some time now and last night I made an impulse buy and ordered this shirt. There are so many other great things in her shop so please take a look! :O)
YAY! FatDaddyBakeShop reopened today! She's been closed since the 12th of March and my mouth has been watering ever since. I just ordered a 3-pack of cupcakes. :O) This time I went with the Red Velvet Revolution, Berry Berry Dark, and Chocolate Chip off the ‘Ol Block. Can't wait to get these!!! I'll be checking my mail like an anxious little girl every day!
In other news....
I woke up this morning to a lovely convo from Marilyn of pulpsushi She ran a wonderful little article on my jewelry on the Venus Zine website! :O)
Haha! I just jumped on the Guitar Hero bandwagon last night. I played the game for the first time at my sister's place and it's going to be my new addiction! Me and Joe (my hubby) played for hours! We were unstoppable... we could not stop rocking out! Joe's bday is coming up on the 5th and I'm pretty sure that's going to be his bday gift... just don't know if I want to get it for our Wii or our PS3. Decisions decisions... Hell... maybe we should just go all out and get Rock Band. Mmm... I love playing the drums. bang bang!
Speaking of "bang bang"... I cut my hair over the weekend. Woo! I've had the same hairstyle since junior-high. It was time for a change and I'm loving it.
And please check out my interview that went live today on flapi's blog today! Many tidbits of info about me can be found there. Enjoy!
ETSY shop SaintChicago has the coolest floor pillow I've ever seen. A BIG GIANT donut with frosting and sprinkles! Mmmmmm! I would just love to have that green one for my living room. I do a lot of sitting on the floor when I watch TV and my bony ass could definitely use the comfort that this donut could provide. For $55 this pillow is a steal! I hope to own one someday.
I never make impulse purchases... EVER. But I saw this ice-cream shirt today while browsing on ETSY and I just felt like I couldn't live without it. SirMitchell is a brand spankin' new shop on ETSY... can't wait to see what designs he comes up with next! I think this is going to be one successful shop! :O)
Hi... my name is Kim Ripley (formerly Sobanski). I am 29 years young and I am from Mount Clemens, MI. My passion lies in art, photography, and creating jewelry. I graduated from Wayne State University in Dec. 2005 with a BFA in photography. I would have to say that I have been an artist my entire life. I think I was born with a crayon in my hand.
When I am not busy creating I enjoy other things. I love thrift stores, antique shops, and yard sales. I have always got my eyes open for strange, tacky, and kitschy things. I am also obsessed with searching out Ebay and Etsy for neato finds!
Which leads me to my next interest- found objects. I collect found items (photos, letters, shopping lists, etc.). I am a huge fan of Found magazine and I even have a 2-page spread of photos and a letter in Dirty Found #2!!
I am currently married to the love of my life~ Joe (we've been together since Nov '99). We have a daughter, Chloe Pearl, who was born in December 2009. We also have one min-pin dog named JoJo.
We hope to make it out to Vegas someday and get out of Michigan.
