Helloreaders!!! Happy Saturdy! I hope you're all enjoying the spring weather!!! Wheeee!!! Just a quick update this weekend from me...
There are only a few days left to enter my 1st blog giveaway! So if you haven't yet entered please be sure to do so!! I'm so excited to be giving away some free stoopidgerl swag! I had sooooo much fun with this giveaway that I think I will be hosting monthly giveaways here on my blog! *insert happy dance here* I have a grand idea for a giveaway and I'm aiming for April 1st (April Fool's Day~ hint hint!) to kick things off. It's going to be a little collaboration between me and another Etsy seller..... dippylulu♥
I added a new googly-eyed necklace to my Etsy shop a couple days ago! I'm having so much fun putting googly eyes on my sweet necklaces!!! I made a few news ones yesterday afternoon and I'll hopefully be listing them later today or sometime tomorrow (Sunday). I'm having one of my lazy days today and I really need to photograph a ton of new bling... it just keeps piling up on me!
Snaggletooth resin popsicle necklace (with real candy sprinkles inside!!!)
I also added a new glittery heart necklace to my shop with an awesome blend of three glitters!! It's one of my favorite shades of green~ slime green!!!
And on a final note.... I am finally getting into Facebook!!! I can't believe it's actually starting to grow on me. I hated it for the longest time. I had an account for awhile and I never did anything with it. I found the layout confusing and somewhat messy. I'm getting the hang of it now and figuring shit out. This past week I started spending a lot more time on it. I even had one of my old friends, Smiley, find me! I've been searching for this girl for years now!! I'm so glad we're back in touch.
Hello ladies! I went to my yearly checkup today at the gyno... joy joy!! I'm glad that's done and over with.... whew! So in honor of the female parts today I'm going to feature some goodies I found on Etsy for the ladies.

The Britneya little zipper pouch that looks like pussy lips... neato! freckleface
sugar skull pantyliners.... the coolest, hippest pads around! Her pads are so cool they make me want to get brave enough to actually try them... I just might someday soon! epicerma
My awesome sister Krystal put this crocheted banana split in her Etsy shop and I can't even tell you how many times I looked at it! I was soooooo tempted to order it and I shouldn't have hesitated. It sold. I will have to commission her to make me one!
Mmmm!~ I got this amazing soap (banana buttercream OMG!) this week from CozyMoments on Etsy. It was my first purchase from her shop and I'm so thrilled with everything I ordered. I also ordered a White Chocolate Macadamia Nut soap and a bar of banana soap. I just want to gobble it up!
Wheeeeeeeeeeeee!!!! I found out today that I'm on another Jones Soda bottle!!! One of my Etsy customers that was inquiring about a custom order had a feeling it was me on her Bohemian Raspberry bottle and sure enough.... it is me!! I'm so surprised about it because I was on a rootbeer bottle awhile ago and Jones notified me about it and sent me some labels. I had no idea I was on another one. I'm really happy about this!!! The cool thing is~ I LOVE RASPBERRY!!! What an awesome flavor to be on. Sad thing is~ the pic I submitted was in color and it got printed in black and white. Oh well.... I shouldn't complain I suppose!
If you can locate this bottle please contact me!

...when you can't stop thinking about it. My mom recommended this movie to me- The Boy In The Striped Pajamas. I must admit that I was pretty skeptical at first because I'm not too into history. The movie is about a young boy who is 8 years old and his father runs a concentration camp. When he is forced into moving he is faced with solitude and loneliness. One day he goes out exploring and he finds a young boy, who is his age, on the other side of the fence. I won't tell anymore... just watch this movie. If you enjoy watching movies that will choke you up and make you want to cry you will enjoy this film.
My pooch, Bianca, would just adore all of the pinkalicous dog goodies. Look at all these sweet lil pink things I found on Etsy for your precious little pup!♥ There is no need to go to Petco or Petsmart. I go there quite often to get things for my dogs but I think that might be coming to an end soon... this stuff I found on Etsy is total eye candy for dogs!
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.
