Happy New Year!

Black Hair

New Hair To Start Off 2012!

I decided that I needed to create a new look for myself this year. After 2 solid years of changing my hair all colors of the rainbow I didn’t know what I wanted to do with it next. I was a little disenchanted with the colors and had done pretty much every color I desired.  It was time to go back to my gothy roots. It was time to go back to black! I got a funky fun cut to go along with it and so far I love it. I really enjoy wearing it in little bouncy evil pigtails. I’m also excited that I will be able to cosplay Selene from Underworld without the need of a wig. A new year is a fresh start, a way to start from scratch, build anew. I will be working on myself, bettering myself, caring for others, becoming more bold, and resisting the urge to hold back. I plan on bettering my business this year as well. 2011 was a year of unsettling unrest both with myself and my life. It did not bode well for my creativity. I made lists before the end of 2011 that I hung on my wall. Lists of goals both small and big, short term and long term, for myself and Gothcupcake. I’m excited to implement my new strategies and create what I hope will be a successful business plan that will more realistically fit in with my creative purpose and need for constant change in life. A new day job has helped make life a little less of a struggle thus far, and has made life less stressful, which gives me energy for creative thinking and activity. My parents gifted me a “sketch-a-day” journal which I have been steadily doodling in daily. It will help keep the creative muscles flexing. I had a customer say to me the other day “You are young…change the world.”

Here’s to changing the world!

Stay Spooky,

Welcome My Little Sprinkles of Doom

I finally decided to start an official Gothcupcake blog. Bigger and better than ever! It’s coming upon the one year celebration of the birth of my gothcupcake shop and there is much to celebrate. When I started out I didn’t even have business cards. I used markers, stickers, a photocopy machine and imagination to create makeshift business cards that I handed out to friends and family. Now I have shiny jewelry boxes, the third design of my business cards, fancy new jewelry tags for my latest collection, and a slew of awesome friends. I don’t want to sound like a commercial, but truly I wouldn’t have gotten this far with my shop, had it not been for all of the amazing people I’ve met on DIYscene. The men and women on the forum have given me advice, shown me love, helped promote me, and even have purchased from or traded with me. I am very grateful for the friendships I have built there along the way, and I hope they continue to flourish as my mini empire continues to grow.

So, welcome! I have some exciting updates, projects, ideas, vegan recipes, and products that I want to share with you. I look forward to hearing from you!

dark wishes,
gothcupcake
