Tattoos (Tizzalicious on

Tattoo artist Stefan from wrote a very nice piece about Tizzalicious this week! Want to see what he wrote, or view his fantastic work? Just visit and look around a bit.

Thank you for the nice feature, Stefan!

I looked around at Stefan's flickr, and found this sketch for a tattoo he did. I love Disney movies (I have a huge collection of Disney DVD's), so obviously I am in love with this!

How do you feel about tattoos? Do you have one (or more) yourself? Do you hate them? Do you like them on other people, but are they not for you? I am in the last category. I love them, but I seem to get bored of things fast (even my pink hair was boring to me after a while!), so I think it's safer for me to just admire other peoples' pretty tattoos instead. Or maybe I should just start chewing bubblegum that comes with temporary tattoos again?

Keeping My Ears Warm

Tizz in the snow

Brrrr, it's been so cold here! It's really a winter that deserves to be called winter this year. I am glad I have a cute woolly hat to keep my ears warm.

New Bracelets

Buddha Bracelet available at, Etsy & DaWanda

After being super lazy during the Holidays, it took me a little while to get back in the swing of things. I just felt like doing nothing all day. Luckily I managed to snap out of that, so I'm being little miss productive again these days.

Paper & Wood Rainbow Bracelet available at, Etsy & DaWanda

I have started adding beaded bracelets to the shop. I enjoy making them a lot, so I will definitely be making more in the near future. I still have a pile of things that need to be photographed and added first though, and I need to re-make a bunch of things that sold out in December. I told myself to that first, before making even more new things. I guess my problem is that whenever I have my supplies out to make new stock, my fingers start itching and I want to make new things as well. I wish I could just make 1 of each item, and never make the same thing twice, but with the time it takes to photograph everything, edit the picture and list the items, it's just not worth it with inexpensive items. Not if I ever want to make a living out of this anyway.

Cameo Bracelet available at, Etsy & DaWanda

What have you been working on? Are your items all one of a kind, or do you make more of each item? And if you do, do you make a whole bunch at once, and sell them until they sold out, or do you make one of each, and re-make them as they sell? Or do you just craft for fun, for yourself and friends?

Cute Stamps

Cute Stamps

When shopping for cheap presents for our dice-game on Christmas Day, I came across these cute stamps at a cheap shop we have in Holland called Action.

Cute Stamps

Cute Stamps

Aren't they adorable? They came in a package with 9 stamps and a 4-color inkpad. I think I paid less than a euro for them!

Cute Stamps

They also had these magnetic alphabet stamps, which I decided to get aswell. Alphabet stamps always come in handy, right?

I guess with all those new stamps it's time for some paper crafts again soon. ACEO's maybe?

Acupuncture Barbie

Sorry for the lack of posts this weekend. I have been feeling pretty bad migraine-wise, so I spent as little time online as possible.

I love this image by Migraine Chick. It reminds me of a dream I had some time ago, in which I did have acupuncture. When I came home I found forgotten pins all over my body. They looked like these sewing pins too, with colorful heads. Weird stuff.

Have you ever tried acupuncture or any other form of alternative treatments for any kind of illness? I tried a lot of different things, from plain weird to things that seem to help a lot of people (like acupuncture). Unfortunately it didn't help for me though. For now I feel a little done with all the treatments. I have had times where I felt there was nothing else in my life besides either having a migraine, or visiting all kinds of doctors and therapists!

Spin Me Around Earrings

I had these earrings and a matching necklace in my shop when I first opened. They were incredibly popular and sold out right away. I got lots of requests for more, but I couldn't find the charms anymore.

Good news for those who wanted them, I have them again! I only have 1 pair though, so be quick if you don't want to miss out on them. You can find them here on Etsy.
