Fast Food Junkie

The etsy team that I'm a member of has decided that Fast Food is the July challenge. Click here to read about it. Easy enough, I've done lots of fast food stuff before...thinking tacos, hot dogs, pizza...maybe some new surprises though! Funny that this is the challenge theme since fast food has been an issue with me this week.

I'm trying to not eat out everyday for lunch, while at work. So, I've been bringing my lunch with me. Being healthy is not easy! I'm so exhausted from lack of calories!!!! I skip breakfast every morning (I know it's not good, but its a fact) and then for lunch I was eating at Mcdonalds, Arby's, Taco Bell...some fast food place. Well, for a Big Mac (my fave) and fries with a's 1100 calories! Versus my 250 calorie Lean Cuisine, it's a no brainer on which I should choose. However, the lack of calories is making me so sleepy. Only having 250 calories from the time I wake up until I get home at 6, well that leaves me mighty hungry and mighty sleepy. I need to bring snacks probably, but I hate snacking :-/ I'm so going out for a little something today, not a big mac, but maybe a snack wrap?

Well maybe I can find a balance soon, have enough energy to take part in this challenge and come up with some cute fast food pieces of jewelry!

First Blog Ever

I suppose I'm a little late jumping on the blogging train, but at least I'm jumping now! I also suppose that since this is my first blog post that I should introduce myself and the purpose of my blog.

My name is Ash Arrasmith and I am attending college in pursuit of a degree in Art Education. In my spare time (who has spare time these days?!) I create lots of cute little things out of polymer clay and do lots of cute little paintings. That's right, everything I do is cute and little. Anything else, I'll probably include in my About me section of my blog, which I hope to get around to adding.

I have a cute little (yup, said it again) etsy shop, which I am working so hard in getting to a point of success. It is small with little inventory (even though I have over 200 pieces at home, just no good pictures yet!), but again, a work in progress:

Etsy: Your place to buy & sell all things handmade

I recently joined an Etsy Team, dedicated to Miniature Food Jewelry. I'm so excited about it, I could just burst! I think it will be really helpful in my success as an etsian and hopefully will help me get my name out there! Here is a link to the team blog.

This first blog is going to be a little short on the writing, but it is a very busy day at work and I've got a lot of things to share!

These are treasuries that I have been included in this week, so check them out, comment and go heart some of the lovely things they have included:

Will have lots to post about soon! Cheers!
