A Weekly Update  
I know I haven't been on here in at least two weeks, but there's a weekly update on what has been going on with me.

Well I didn't reach my 10th sale by my first anniversary on Etsy like I wanted to, but I have at least eight right now. hehe Maybe I can make two more by the end of the year! hehe

I successfully sold my first package of 100 pocket mirrors to an artist, "The Meat Chronicles", to use at their next art venue! :) I'm hoping to sell more to other artists who need them.

If there are any artists/photographers following me right now, I sell packages of promo accessories for you to promote your art:

Bonanzle Booth: Swell Dame Inc.

I also sell them at my Etsy shop as well: Swell Dame Inc

I'm offering FREE SHIPPING within USA as well.

And I'm considering doing something different with my Etsy shop. I might leave what I have in there for sale until they either sell or expire at the end of their four months and then once the shop is empty, I'll have Swell Dame Inc for art supplies, buttons, mirrors, keychains and pocket mirrors of my retro/digital art. And then open another Etsy shop for my woodwork since my woodwork has taken on a life of its own and needs to be put in a shop that has a brand name for it. And since Etsy shops are free , I might as well.

This week I went to the college campuses and bought my books. They were having a 20% discount on all used and new books. My sister and I saved $100 each and we're lucky that our financial aid was able to pay for it since it was really inexpensive to attend part-time. And I'm in love with my film course book! I've started reading it and it is better than I thought it would be. Any book is a book for me when they mention "The Phantom of the Opera" (2004) among other films. lol

This coming Tuesday I'm taking my driver's test for my license. *fingers crossed* I honestly don't think there would be any reason why I won't pass either the written or the actual test, so we'll see.

Hello there! I haven't been around livejournal for awhile, except for updating weekly, if I can. If you're updating more, then I'll be sure to be around livejournal more often. :)

No, I haven't been able to send you an update e-mail yet. I'll try and send you one, by the end of this week, so look out for it. hehe Which address should I send it to? I have a new address - swell-dame@hotmail.com/

I follow you on tumblr, as I'm sure you follow me. ;) hehe

:HUGS:: ♥♥♥

Ok sweet, added your new email :) Don't rush hunny, just send it to somethingthisrandom@gmail.com when you have the time :)

I will update more, that is my goal lol I haven't yet since I sent the previous msg though LOL

Qn, do you still watch True Blood?

I like your Tumblr for the old school actresses. It's very you ;)

Thank you! I've added you to my list. I'm in the middle of writing the e-mail right now, so it'll be sent to you soon. :)

Of course I still watch "True Blood"! lol I actively converted my sister into watching it with me, so she loves it too. (Although my sister likes the Twilight stuff too. Ugh. lol I'm going to have to fix that. XD)

This season, we were able to buy some of the special edition True Blood soda they sell here in the states at Hot Topic stores. It comes in a real glass jar that looks like the ones from the show and we drank them for the first and last episodes of the season. hehe It's pretty tasty - it had an orange-fruity type of taste to it. We hope we can buy more to have for next season too. lol

Some people didn't think the season finale was as strong as the last two season finales but I liked this one. It had a lot of great moments in it. I put my favorite parts up at my tumblr. hehe

hehe Yeah, I put a decent amount of old hollywood stuff on my tumblr. XD lol Although, I have been putting up as much Rufus Sewell pics as I can find - he's my new "beau" (my only beau lol) And I'm sure you've seen the Megan Fox/Katy Perry spectacle too. hehe I can't believe you don't think they're hot. ;)

I'll probably be making a livejournal post sometime this weekend as a part of my weekly update, so look out for that. :)

Like my "True Blood" icon? It's from the season 3 finale. hehe
