A little bit of felt

I really enjoy wet felting. I love starting from raw wool roving and ending with whatever I want to create. Today I want to show you folks a pair of wristlets I made. Β I really love the grey scale/vivid color combo and when I got a bit of a super vivid pink wool in a sample bag I ordered, I knew I had to do something cool and 80’s like with it.

 

I love the way these turned out. I added little bits of silk thread in places, and I hand-spun some of the pink wool into a little length of yarn to add some texture to them.

I definitely plan to make more wristlets because they’re so fun. Next time, though, I’ll show you one of the little bags I’ve been making!

New Year, New…news?

Hi folks, it’s been awhile, yeah?Β  Those of you who follow me on Twitter know I haven’t really gone anywhere- I’ve just been really bad at organized updates over the last few months. :p

Over the first couple months of 2019, I’m going to be updating many of the listings on Etsy. I’m gonna be taking down a few things, bringing back a few colors, updating a couple of formulas, and revamping all the product photos.

I’ve played, over the last year, with adding different cosmetics to the mix (And I did add a small selection of perfume oil), but I feel, at least right now, that I want to bring the focus back in on what I’m best at- fun and quirky nail polishes, and some other nail related stuff (So, before anyone panics-the cuticle balm is not going anywhere. πŸ™‚ ).

On that note, there’ll be 2 new things going into the shop this week. First is my take on Pantone’s Color of the Year for 2019 – Living Coral. I love this color a lot and I’m excited to add it to the shop!

Next up (Or more accurately- Up now!) is a $5 mystery bottle! During the summer months, BeeFae has a display at a local boutique in my town, so I find myself in the winter with the left over stock.Β  I’ll be offering them at half price to you folks so I can make room for new colors! The listing will be active as long as I have extra bottles. So if you like surprises, pick up a couple!

Lastly, I am always very thankful for you folks, and so I am working on ways to show that this year.

Here’s to a great 2019!

It’s a Garden Party!

Hi folks! After what seems like FOREVER, I have a new line of polishes! Here in Indiana, the winter has just dragged on, so we needed a set of polishes to help bring on Spring. πŸ˜€

 

 

I started with the idea of a Victorian era garden party and just went from there. πŸ™‚

Each of these polishes are available in the Etsy shop right now, along with 2018’s birthstone polishes- up to April, of course. πŸ™‚

March and Spring and Stuff

Been a minute, I know. I’ve been busy at work, and waiting for winter to be done in the part of the world I call home. πŸ™‚ Today, though, the sun is shining and the birds are singing and the snow is gone, so here I am with an update. πŸ™‚

I had planned to release the spring line in the middle of March, but then I got to thinking about how I opened the Etsy shop on April 2nd of last year.Β  So, I’ll be releasing the spring line- I’m calling it Garden Party, cuz that’s what the colors make me feel like- on that date. πŸ™‚ In March, aside from the birthstone polish, I’ll be releasing a couple random polishes I’ve been working on, including one that I think I want y’all to name for me. πŸ™‚

 

I mentioned March’s birthstone polish- Aquamarine is generally considered March’s birthstone so I paid homage to that with this polish, although it’s a bit brighter than the stone generally is.

It’ll be in the Etsy shop on March 1st. πŸ™‚ And throughout the month of March, I’ll be previewing the new line as well as a few other things as we lead up to the 1st anniversary of BeeFae Cosmetics as an actual thing. ❀

September’s Polish Pair and news!

Hi! I’m here to show off September’s Polish Pair and give a bit of news out!

First- The BeeFae Etsy shop is having a sale! Β Etsy’s recently given us the tools to run actual sales, and, so I am checking these tools out by having a sale. Through Tuesday, you can save 10% on 20$ or more! That’s 2 polishes! Not shabby, yeah?

Along with that, I’m keeping August’s Polish Pair in the shop for the duration of the sale, so if you haven’t picked them up yet, now’s your chance!

Okay! Now to September’s Polish Pair. This month I was playing around with the idea of the Northern Lights. Β They’re definitely on my bucket list to see. So, these two polishes are, like August’s, meant to go together.

The first is called The Merry Dancers. I was reading about how various ancient northern folks had looked at the Lights, and this was one of the ways Scottish folks used to refer to the Aurora Borealis, and I liked the idea, so I applied it to this polish.It’s a cool blue shimmer that has a gentle color shift between purple/pink and green and it’s proven exeedingly difficult to photograph well. *grin*20170830_100533

 

Next up, we’ve got Bardic Cloak. It’s sheer and sparkly and I really really love it.

The cool thing about them is that you can put a coat of Bardic Cloak over The Merry Dancers for extra fun!

So, I’ll get these in the shop early tomorrow (The 1st of September), that way you’ll have the chance to buy these at a discount for the weekend!

I’ve got some more things up my sleeve, and I’ll be talking more about them over the next few weeks!

Have a great weekend, everyone!

August’s Polish Pair!

Hi folks! It’s almost August. How the crap did that happen?! πŸ˜€

August’s Polish Pair follow a theme for once. πŸ™‚ August is my favorite of the summer months. Β It signifies the beginning of the end of Summer, the first harvests, and the first steps toward my favorite season-Autumn!

Both polishes came about because of myth and story.

The Death of John Barleycorn is a glossy tan/beige with tiny brown flecks in it, something like ripe barley or wheat, and I love that barley was personified into a story/song.

There was three men come out o’ the west their fortunes for to try,
And these three men made a solemn vow, John Barleycorn must die,
They ploughed, they sowed, they harrowed him in, throwed clods upon his head,
Til these three men were satisfied John Barleycorn was dead.

Lyrics are fun. πŸ™‚

The second polish is called Samildanach. It’s an Irish gaelic word that means, basically, “Master of all arts”, and was a title given to the Irish deity Lugh, who’s festival, Lughnasadh, is generally August 1st. Since Lugh is considered a sky/sun god, this polish is all sorts of gold and sparkle. A sheer gold shimmer, with tiny scattered gold holo glitter throughout.

The cool thing about this pair is that, while they both look great alone, they also look great together, with Samildanach over Barleycorn. πŸ™‚

As always, these will be available the 1st of the month, and will only be available for the month of August, so be sure to pick them up!
