My online store...coming soon!

I am excited to announce that my very own online store is currently in the works! The name? Ah yes, the name. Hmm. I'm trying to decide between two:

The Market Town Gallery, or...

The Curiosity Shop?

Anyway, it'll end up one of the two. Feel free to comment!

The store is scheduled to open at Etsy on Saturday, April 7th, at approximately 12 noon. In about two weeks I will post photos here on my blog featuring my debut item.  I'm so excited to share my creations with everyone.

I've wanted to have my own store for a while now, but with my busy life I just haven't had any time to put something together in an orderly fashion. But with me going to college in the fall, some extra funding would really help out with things.

My shop will feature The Legend of Zelda-themed jewelry and novelties, as well as other cool things inspired by geekery, Anime/manga, and fantasy. Other items, like artwork and stationery, will be up for sale occasionally.

I hope you are excited about this as I am! Keep checking back for updates. :-)

Random Randomness 2/18/12

Hey ya'll. Again, my apologies for my long absence of posting. I've become so lazy, it's unbelievable. XD From now on, I'm going to try to post every week. Emphasis on try. You know what they try, you fail; you try, you fail, but the only true failure is when you stop trying!
Alright, let's get this show on the road. As of late, I have been feeding my inner nerd to the point of near gluttony. Hyrule Royal Family crest zip-up jacket? Check. Hours of video games when I get home from work? Check. Watching The Big Bang Theory on Hulu? Check.

Bahahahaaa. One of my favorite scenes from TBBT. Folks, this show may have some serious stupid, but it also has some serious funny as well. I'm not addicted to it by any means, but it has occupied a lot of my time this past week. I'm definitely gunna buy a Bazinga! t-shirt or a button at some point.

And Skyward Sword. I feel like I should write a review or something about it, but right now I just can't think of anything fitting to say. I will say this, however: this game is BEAUTIFUL. If true beauty can be captured in a video game, it is captured in The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword. I do believe that this game rivals Ocarina of Time. It's pure fun. Every aspect of it is perfect. I hadn't had so much fun playing a video game since I played OoT as a 7 year old, in fact. Skyward Sword brought back many wonderful memories for me. Feeling like a kid again is one of the reasons why video games like this are so loved. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Zelda forever!

Glee. Yup. I don't like Glee, I think there are a lot of moral issues in it, but yesterday I happened to watch Amber Riley (Mercedes)'s cover of Whitney Houston's I Will Always Love You, and I was impressed.

Beautiful. Whitney would be proud!

...So let's see, what else do I have for today...AH. I'm very happy to announce that I have been rather productive. Work has been going very well, and I've been drawing and writing regularly. I'll have new art in my deviantART gallery and poems at Writer's Cafe next week. Not only that, but I've been reading too. I just recently finished Maggie Stiefvater's Forever (absolutely shameful, considering I started it last year). Amazing book. Now I'm reading Stiefvater's The Scorpio Races. It's great so far. You can keep up with my reading at my Goodreads (see "Links" at the bottom of the page).

Finally, I joined Pinterest, if anyone's interested in following my boards. I just pin randomness. Quotes, art, stuff. Find me here: Aianarie @Pinterest

And that's all for this week. Hope you enjoyed. :-) Laters!
