Katie Kutthroat is NSFW

I have been one busy bee or so it would seem! The past few weeks I have been at work a lot, trying to have a social life, craft a lot, and not lose my mind.. So far.. so good..

Here are some projects I have been working on, I am really liking the projects I have been making lately. It is fun to just do whatever you want but oh how I do love custom orders too! I have been working on recreating old listings, check it out!

$25.00 @ My Shop
This week I also got the interview from Subversive Cross Stitch.. It was hilarious! I can't wait to see it up on the website, very exciting! Keep your eyes peeled for that and more vulgarity from your favorite foul mouthed vixen!

Weekly Resolutions!!

- Go see Watchmen
- Work a ton
- Craft a ton
- Acceptance

So I am super excited about Watchmen, I just started reading it but love it! I made plans with two of my best guy pals to go see it, now its just a matter of having the same time off of work..

Speaking of work, yea I am still working way too much.. Last week I decided to take two days off instead of my typical one day off of work. It was a great decision on my part, I was able to finish up another custom order and clean the house, get my oil changed and baked 3 dozen cookies!!
The past week and a half I have finished 4 custom orders, I haven't really been able to do what Katie wants to do.. This week I am hoping to creep back into that mode.. I started another cross stitch and I love the border, although it is taking forever! Here are two of the custom orders I did this week :)

Both parties picked everything from the design to the colors.. I just whipped them up for them! Thanks ladies!
Acceptance.. It has been a long hard road for me, realizing that people who I thought were my friends aren't.. The pain is always there, it never goes away and every time I think of them it literally makes me sick to my stomach.. But I am reaching a point where I accept people who reject me, from social gatherings, friendships, etc.. Knowing deep down that I am a good person and don't deserve the rejection, I am accepting people for the way they are and moving on.. I wish I knew an easier way to pass along but just remember, keep your chin up.. life is a rolllercoaster, and I ain't afraid of no rolliecoaster!

Weekly Resolutions!!

- Keep on trucking at work
- 2 More Custom Orders to go!
- Start redoing some old cross stitchings
- Must fit in Social Life
- Avoiding drama

So in the economy today I find it so important to have a stable income. I guess more so now than ever.. Single life can be a very fight or flight moment.. Sure sometimes I am puking and don't want to go into work, but yesterday I sucked it up and am really glad I did. After all it is the income that keeps me crafty!

This week I knocked out three custom orders, I will post pictures soon.. although two of them are just a wedding gift, nothing too fancy.. the other was a custom order on Etsy.

I know in the last blog I mentioned starting a line of cross stitchings that I would like to have available on my Etsy Store, but I have been so busy with custom orders I have had little time for tinkering of my own(and no I am so NOT complaining).

I have been making a real effort to have a "social life" which has been difficult with my scheduling, a lot of doubles kinda suck away at your free time. But I am happy to report that it is making a come back.. It saddens me that one of my close friends here is moving but at the same time I do not blame her at all!

Avoiding drama is always easier said than done.. It is always amusing when you are in a case of guys gone drama.. I find it amusing because women have the reputation of being catty and dramatic. The best way I know is to not react in the manner they are trying to get out of me. When they push my buttons and take it as encouragement to reach the next hurdle. So heres to hoping I don't pull a muscle before this is all over!
