Featured Artisan: UBrickIt

I'd like to start something new in my blog that will happen from time to time. It's called Featured Artisan. Here is my first entry into my new feature :)

Who doesn’t love Legos? I was a bit of a tomboy so I loved the space station sets. When I had money, that’s usually what I would go for. As soon as I got home I’d break open the box and build. As a challenge to myself I would usually just look at the picture on the front and put it together that way. The directions were usually tossed aside and forgotten.

That brings me to this unique seller. UBrickIt has taken an interesting approach to jewelry design. He casts the metal to fit Lego pieces on them. This ring is my favorite.

He also decorates the actual plastic pieces with crystals.

What geek wouldn’t love these as a gift for the holidays? So check out his shop and maybe you’ll find something that really suits a dear friend or significant other. Or hell, shop for you!

A Stitch in Time update

Last week was a week to dance. Why you ask? Well you know that little spot on the internet where I can sell my adorable knit items? I made my first sale through it! I had to say goodbye to my little monster wallet and ship it out to be enjoyed.

Also during this week, the guild I am part of was promoting me like crazy. The Stalkers Guild is pretty awesome. They made my stats climb faster every day as they shared my goods with everyone through Facebook, their blogs, Twitter, and many other venues. Thank you to my fellow guild members!!

I also added a new item to the shop. I added an adorable octopus pin cushion.

I’ve already sold one to a friend so I quickly knit up 2 more. They just need some buttons, to be put together, and then photographed. I have so many ideas for store items. It’s exciting! Some to expect are hair barrettes, new mug cozies, and maybe different pin cushions. Nothing like a sale to really boost your enthusiasm.

I ended my great week with a post Thanksgiving feast with my dear friends in CT. We had lots of food, some yummy libations, crafting fun, and many laughs. They really are an awesome group. The ones that couldn’t make it were sorely missed. *hugs*

Now off to some English muffin pizzas for dinner :)
