Yesterday Night I came across this Instagram user & recognized the name from the shipping address on an order earlier this week — She had just posted a picture of the candle she purchased and it had three thousand likes and over a hundred comments! Naturally, I had to investigate further! Turns out this is an amazing boutique in NJ and online called Gypsy Warrior that sells jewelry, clothing and accessories and runs a fashion blog on Tumblr (ps– you can find my Tumblr here) ! There were quite a few comments on this image either asking where this candle could be purchased or stating an opinion on the evilness of the item. I dont think their Instagram is very interactive so I took some liberty and answered where the commenters could find my shop, I hope thats not in bad taste? I kept my Ouija Loving opinion to myself 🙂
Do you think the board or, simply the image of the board, holds any negative powers? Seems like a few people believe it does.
I have come across a few tutorials on pinterest lately that have been suggesting making your own altered designed mugs by using a Sharpie! I kept thinking, “God, I WISH it were that easy!” My cups take 3-4 days to complete and have multiple steps to get to a finish that I like. I decided to try it out and followed the steps I have been seeing on blogs. Cup, Sharpie, Design, Bake at 350 for 30 mins and allow to cool. After the mug had been sitting for a few hours I decided to try washing it with warm water, regular dish soap and a sponge– just as I thought, the design immediately deteriorated. Below are the first wash, the second pass under the faucet and sponge and the third. It took a total of 2 minutes to wash the writing almost completely off. I guess it was too good to be true.
