pre-deployment trips drive me nuts

im so lonely when my boyfriend goes on these training trips for pre deployment. it sucks so bad. hes still gonna be gone for another 16 days and i cant take it. hes only been gone since saturday morning. i feel all sad and mopey and dont wanna eat... our apartment (which we just moved into about two months ago) is so quiet, i am so grateful for him getting me cable before he left so i wouldnt be sitting here in silence when im home from work for the day or afternoon.i dont know i just need him home asap but i have to get used to it at the same time. after all he is gonna be gone for 6 months soon.... we may be moving again to another apt that allows dogs so we can get one so im not too alone and have a reason to get up and out when i dont have work...

okay so my draculaura came from the mattel website just the other day. I didnt realize how long her hair was! i didnt post earlier becasue i have been crazy busy with another new job at the beach, my other job, and setting up my etsy account and purchasing the last few things id need to complete sales!! Also, living without cable has finally ended, i am so happy to be able to watch the news and just hear voices talking while im cooking, cleaning, getting ready to go out...etc. A HUGE thanks to my boyfriend escpecially now since hes on a 3 week training trip before hes deployed. I dont like being alone in a quiet apartment, i dont really think anyone else likes it too much for long periods of time.

I plan on opening my new etsy shop on friday. the link is:

I will have origami crane earings protected by a clear glaze to make them more durable, hemp braceletes and anklets, and origami crane fabric ornaments! check 'em out this friday!

so another thing im excited about is my recent purchase of the Robert Tonner Joker doll... he's supposed to arrive this monday to my apartment :) heres a look.

ok so i couldnt control myself...

I was way too excited about my purchase of Draculaura yesturday that I had to go to Toys R Us and get some more of the monster high dolls. I got Lagoona Blue and Frankie Stein. I personaly think that Lagoona Blue is the prettiest out of all of the dolls however everyone is inclined to have their own opinions cause something I think that Frankie Stein is the prettiest so I can't even make up my mind. Maybe these pictures can help you decided for yourself...

After I grabbed these off of the shelf I saw the Alice in Wonderland bobble heads. Theres the Cheshire Cat, Alice, The Mad Hatter and the White Rabbit. I of course got the Mad Hatter one today because he is my 2nd favorite character after Alice... I should have gotten her too but I thought I'd save her purchase for my next trip over to TRU.

Etsy shop soon to come!

So im really excited to get some of my stuff up and ready to sell! I've been making some fabric origami crane ornaments, crane dangle earings in a few different sizes (the smallest being made out of a one inch square, im not kidding!)

im just waiting for my glaze to get here so i can finish up on the earings and things will slowly but surely start to get added on to the shops list of items for sale.
so look out for The Curious Chinchy on Etsy!


So I just purchased my very first "Monster High" doll from shop.mattel.com, Draculaura.

She is one of several dolls in the collection and the first one that I purchased because I am currently obsessed with the "vampire hipe" sweeping over America.

I too like the Twilight series, but my most recent and more "mature" vampire like is the True Blood book series by Charlaine Harris. (which i plan to blog about in a future blog,)

Shop.mattel.com has all monster high dolls at free shipping and if you join the email list you will get a 10% off coupon to use so if you like these dolls go for it, nows the time to save on gas money and stay in the a/c by shopping online and taking full advantage of the savings. I plan on purchasing Frankie Stein next who is the daughter of Frankenstein and really pretty!

I'll take a picture of Draculaura when she arrives and I'll inform you on my Frankie Stein purchase as well and the next doll from the collection I plan on purchasing.
I'm so excited!
