Yesterday (11/28) marked a full year of Collinswoah’s Corner!!! A FULL ENTIRE YEAR! I knew it was coming up but holy cow I didn’t think it was already here!!

Collinswoah’s Corner has grown quite a bit in a year. It went from primarily being about nerdy things of all sorts to being more about my writing and sometimes my projects and crafts. I also went from a free site to a paid one all because I hit my view goal out of the park. Thank you guys.

This blog has also helped me grow as a person. It’s a huge step to take to put yourself out on the internet and share your personal writing. But hey, I’m doing it! Yay!

I have to say a BIG thank you to everyone who has ever visited this blog, everyone who will visit and everyone who continues to visit. You all mean so very much to me. Thank you, thank you, thank you! Without you guys this blog would not be possible.

To say thank you even more I am having my biggest sale to date in my Etsy shop. Take advantage of 25% everything, including any custom orders I am able to do. Check out the sale here. The sale runs from 11/29/17-12/09/17.

Year one has been a HUGE success for Collinswoah’s Corner and I can’t wait to see what all happens in year two.

Thank you all with all my heart.

Stay classy and sassy<3

Current Work in Progresses!

Look what I’m making for my shop next!

Remember how I said I wanted to share all of my creative outlets?

Well here we go! I thought I’d share some of my current work in progresses for my Etsy shop!

First up, I’m working on these awesome Star Wars character standees:

I’m super happy with how the characters are turning out and love that the logo makes a perfect base for them to stand on. My biggest struggles with this projects has been ironing the base and making sure the tongue of the characters that fit into the base have melted enough while not melting the rest of the character too much. I personally have not been brave enough to attempt the taping method which is why ironing the base was so troublesome for me. Looks like I’m going to have to buck up and try it sooner rather than later!

So this is my next work in progress:

Yup! More perlers! These go along with my GameBoy earbud winders. I’m soon going to be offering GameBoy Advance earbud winders that look like this! These are seriously cool looking in my opinion. I am super excited for these to launch!

Stay tuned for updates these to hit my shop and other work in progresses I find myself getting into and sharing.

Stay classy and sassy!

Kawaii Mason Jar Organizer DIY!

How to make super cute mason jar organizers!

Hello and welcome back! It’s been quite awhile since my last DIY post!

So today, I am going to show you how to make these:

What you will need is this:

*Make sure to choose jars with raised writing on only one side*

First step is to remove the lid of the jar and wipe your jars down with a damp rag. Let them dry completely.

Now using your acrylic paint, paint the outside of the jars with your chosen colors. You will need to do multiple coats to make sure you have a solid color all the way around. You also need to paint the lip of the jar as that may be noticeable once the lid is back on.

Once your jars have fully dries, look up kawaii faces online. A quick Google image search will more than suffice. Choose what faces you like and using a pencil, lightly sketch your chosen face onto the jar on the flat side of the jar with no raised lettering.

When you have the faces sketched, carefully paint your faces on using your sketch as a guide.

After they dry completely use a brush and paint modge podge all over the jar to set your design and seal the paint.

Now all you need to do is put the metal lid ring back on, (I don’t know the techincal term) after it dries completely, without the top and now you’re  ready to put your items in them and display your jars. I put pens, paintbrushes, pencils and scissors in mine:

If you love these and don’t want to make your own you can purchase them in my Etsy shop NerdCentral13. I can do all sorts of colors and faces so you can mix and match.

I hope you all enjoyed this DIY post! If you happen to make it show me pictures! Use #collinswoah13 or #collinswoahscorner so I am sure to see them!

Have a great weekend guys and stay classy and sassy like always ❤
