Cute Fabric! [May. 10th, 2008|04:47 pm]
charlotteraven
I was shopping around the other day, and I found the cutest fabric. It's pink with a bunch of strawberries embroidered all over it. I'm going to make myself a pair of shorts. I'll post a pic of my butt, wearing the shorts, when I'm finished.

YAY!!!! [Apr. 28th, 2008|12:25 pm]

I got more hours at my job, so I'll be able to put enough aside to get a doll soon! I'm planning on placing the order At the beginning of June. I have also decided to get shall instead of tender shall. My boyfriend kept telling me that she looked stoned.

I already bought the sewing machine, but I'm waiting on the dress form for now.

I'm working on a lot of craft things at the moment. I'm making a crap load of guitar pick earrings and necklaces, and I'm also in the middle of making a lolita-esque maids outfit for Olivia, my american girl. When I have pics, I'll post them.

Tax Return [Apr. 16th, 2008|05:32 pm]

I wanna kitten...a siamese one *pout*. I'm going to wait a year for things to stable out and so I can figure out some plans. I would hate to get a kitten and then move or something. I want to make sure a cat will fit in with all of my plans. I would be a sucky owner if I got a cat for the sake of having one. 

I was on DOA last night, looking at a forum for the doll I want, Tender Shall. It's interesting to see what people have done with her. Even though it's the same face, she looks different everytime. 

I have decided to put off getting the doll in favor of getting a new sewing machine and an adjustable dress form, but I do plan on putting the rest of the tax return money into savings for the appropriate time to finally get Tender Shall.

The sewing machine I was looking at is really nice. It's good for doing crazy quilts, but is still basic enough to be used to make clothing.

I'm at work, so I can't write for much longer, later then.

Luna Comic [Apr. 7th, 2008|12:43 pm]

I've begun drawing a Luna Lovegood fan comic! It's a lot of fun to work on. I already have a few pages drawn out, once I get a deviant account set up, I'll post the images.

Basically, the story is set after Voldemort. Luna is a naturalist, and is discovering new magical creatures, and plants. I can't decide if I'm going to make each chapter stand alone, or if there's going to be a climax and a villain and what not. 

So far, no plans to include Harry himself, although Neville is scheduled to make an appearance and I'm thinking of including Hermione in some chapters as well.

Fucking old as hell car... [Mar. 23rd, 2008|06:19 pm]

Well, my radiator broke. I hope it doesn't cost too much to fix becasue I'm sooooo poor right now. I don't want to ask my parents for help because I can't bear to ask them for money. Infact, I didn't even want to tell them about it, but my friends urged me to do it...and I did. Ugh! I can't stand being immobilized or having to rely on other ppl for help! I hate this so much right now.

A coat, dress, and vest is nearing completion for my American Girl, Olivia. She totally doesn't look like what I would normally think an "Olivia" should look like. She looks Irish, like me. Not the dark, beautiful Italian girl I imagine with dark eyes, darker hair, and olive toned skin. Nope, light brown hair and green eyes.

Anyway, this outfit is Elegant Gothic Lolita and features blue and black plaid which I got for half off because it was at the end of the bolt of fabric. I'm going to have to post pics. I'm quite proud of it! I made the pattern for it myself.

I'm off to mope...

My First Post [Mar. 21st, 2008|11:13 pm]

A few facts about me!
     -My name is Leah Charlotte (not giving out my last name)

     -I work regualr retail, but I'm hoping to get a temp or office job soon
     
     -I enjoy several hobbies
          -Crochet/Knitting
          - Sewing (clothing, quilting, etc)
          -18" Doll ( I have one American girl, I enjoy making clothes for her)
          -Scrapbook-type stationary(I send handmade cards to friends and family)
          -Manga art (in particular, Sailor Moon and Harry Potter fan-art/doujin)
          -Jewelry making
     
     -I'm looking to get into another type of Doll hobby, BJD! I have my eye on a tender shall from DOD. I  seriously don't mind their epic wait period
     
     -I love anything Ravenclaw themed and Luna Lovegood is my hero
     
     -I really enjoy reading "Memoirs of a Geisha", even though it's riddled with inaccuracy. If you haven't read it yet, you should pick up "Geisha, A Life"(for those in the UK, "A Geisha in Gion") an autobiography by Mineko Iwasaki. It's a good read. If you notice in "Memoirs" Mineko is mentioned in the acknowledgements. Although it was supposed to be kept a secret that she helped Arthur Golden with his book and filed a lawsuit against him, and won.

     -I want to go to college for Archeology, but it's hard when you have no money and your family is poor

That's all I can think of for now! I'll post more soon!
