Hello Tiny World

I haven't posted in a while because I am trying to get in shape.
I am THE most out of shape person I know!!
I know I am not fat, and I have a decent looking body in a bathing suit, nothing to be TOO ashamed of, but I'm not entirely pleased with it.
I want to look better, be stronger, and have more endurance.

I've been going to Crossfit at the gym James goes to and it's been kicking my @$$ to tell the truth.
There are women there that are MUCH heavier than me, and look a lot flabbier, but they can outrun me, lift more weight than me, squat more reps than me, and get a better time on our WAD (workout of the day). It's just slightly depressing realizing that I am so out of shape I wonder how I am functioning, moving, and alive.

I have asthma, but that is no excuse! I am an out of shape blob, proved by my near immobility due to soreness that has occurred after my gym trips. I could barely walk a day after my first Crossfit experience, and I almost fell down the stairs as my legs buckled and thighs burned I was so sore. I actually thought I had INJURED my left arm it hurt so badly, and I spent two days soaking in a bath of Epsom Salts.

Such is the reason of my mini neglect.
Lack of time (taken up by Crossfit) and lack of mobility (in legs, arms, fingers, neck, EVERYTHING). I didn't even have the energy to lift a pair of scissors.

Got to get back on the horse though! These are some items I shall be selling in my future Etsy. I'm working on finishing up examples and taking decent photographs of them (which has proved to be immensely difficile).

Now, I designed all the labels you see myself, EXCEPT for the Bezoar label. I'm not sure who made it, as I found it on Google Images, and therefore am not sure if I am "allowed" to use it.

Please know that I would never knowingly copy or use anyone else's work.
However there are some images for potion labels I found on Google Images that I am unsure if I can use and sell my products with those images on them. I believe the images are for public use, but I really don't know if I can sell minis for my profit using them. I will post some pictures of the minis I have made with those labels later, and you can input your thoughts on this subject. If I can't use them, it's really no big deal, I can make my own labels. I just really liked them and thought they look cool. And I can keep the ones I have made for my own personal collection.

Just please don't jump down my throat. I am an admittedly novice mini maker and seller and am not knowledgeable in all the "rules and regulations" of copyrights etc... I am trying to learn though and would never purposefully offend anyone by stealing their idea. I have read some harsh blog posts, calling out copycats, and while most likely deserved, I don't know the full story. I just hope no such posts will ever be directed at me!

...looking over my photos, I realize I probably should have shown what's INSIDE the bottles haha oops.
I guess I'll have to retake these with some of the actual product next to the jar.

  1. I have just been looking at the books you have made and they are amazing! The set of Standard Spells books are simply wonderful. All those individual spell pages!

    The ones you have made with all the different types of covers have also come out great.

    Well done you and good luck with your Etsy shop too.
