Interview with CosmicWishes

 Hi everyone! Today I have something wonderful to sharing with you! Meet Casey of CosmicWishes! I just love her work and I think you will do. So here is a mini interview I did with her.

Tell us a bit about yourself Hi there! My name is Casey and I am the owner of CosmicWishes on Etsy as well as the creator of Love XO on YouTube. I'm 24 years old and the proud mom of two little girls! I was born and raised in Tennessee, but I now live in Missouri. I've been crafting and making videos for around 5 years now!

So what is your shop(or youtube, which ever you wanna talk about), all about what do you offer?
My Etsy shop is called CosmicWishes and it's a space based shop where I sell resin and polymer clay jewelry. In my shop you will find a lot of creepy cute, space grunge, pastel goth, and kawaii jewelry. I base my shop around the things I love the most!What are all of your social media? (this is my personal tumblr)

So, describe the process of creating your items: how, when, materials, etc.? I usually work late at night as I feel more inspired during the night time. I put some music on, light some candles, then start crafting! If I'm working with polymer clay I will set out all of my clay then grab the tools that I work the most with which are dotting and needle tools, x-acto knife, a small ball of tin foil, a tooth brush, chalk pastels, and of course eye pins! If I'm working with resin I clear off my craft table, gather my resin, clear plastic cups, and pop sickle sticks. After mixing my resin I get my molds, glitter, stickers, beads and then I start creating!

Got other hobbies that you love? I love playing video games! I'm obsessed with Nintendo and their handheld consoles. I've been a lover of Nintendo since I was a little girl and the love just gets stronger as I grow older :p In case you were wondering my favorite game is Animal Crossing!

Any advice for people starting out? Never give up!!

What other artist do you like/love? There are so many wonderful artists that I love but here are a few of my favorites: funkypinkgal, mistypixel, dreamycraftshop, xoxrufus, nerdecrafter, polymomotea, thelittlemew, and toniellison.

Okay, last question, where do you see yourself in ten years?
I've always seen this question, but it's never something I've asked myself. 10 years ago I never thought I'd be where I am today, so in 10 years time there's no telling where I'll be then. I have hopes, goals, and dreams for myself but I try not to look to far in the future. Like most people, I only wish to be healthy, happy, and successful!

Kawaii Food Things

So starting the other day, I couldn't help myself my make kawaii food things! I made the blue cupcake first, then the pink and then the kitty doughnut. So many people seemed to like it, that I had to list them on etsy. I also went out to dinner last night and a women at an other table asked where I got them. Then I told her I made both of them, then she told me she has to have them. Hehe. It makes my day when my work is enjoyed that much.

Steamed Chicken-ish Seitan Cutlets

These are my favorite way to make saitan. If your like me its hard to find saitan in stores. So this is a super easy way to make what you need in a pinch.

15 oz can chickpeas (To save money I take 1/2 cup dry chickpeas)
1 cup veg broth (I take one bouillon cube to 1 cup water)
1 tablespoon olive oil
3 tablespoons soy sauce
1 1/3 vital wheat gluten
1/3 cup nutritional yeast
2 teaspoons onion powder
1/4 teaspoon turmeric
1/4 teaspoon paprika
some black pepper


Get your steamer boiling. I use a steaming basket in a large pot.
Get 4 squares of aluminum foil ready. In a large bowl, mash the chickpeas, until there are no whole ones left. Mix in all the other ingredients in the order listed. Mix well using a fork and then knead lightly with your hand.
Divide the mixer into 4 pieces. Form into patties. Place each in the center of the foil. fold the foil lightly. The mixer will expand.
Place the patties in the steamer for 40 min. Once they are finished you can refrigerate for up to a week or freeze for 3 months.

24 Hour Kimchi

I love kimchi and now I make it at home! So why not give this a try. If you haven't been able to tell I love pickled and fermented veg.


1 head napa cabbage about 7-8 cups coarsely chopped
1-2 carrots, peeled and thinly sliced
1 green onion
2 tablespoons salt
6 cups water more if needed
2 cloves garlic
1 teaspoon grated ginger
2 tablespoons sriracha with 1 tablespoon water or kochijn paste with 1 tablespoon water or 1 tablespoon cayenne (I used sriracha)
3 tablespoons rice vinegar
1/4 black pepper


In a large bowl, combined the cabbage, carrots, and green onions. Add the salt and water. Place a plate inside the bowl to hold the veg under the water. Set aside for at least 4 hours.

Drain the water, you can lightly rinse the veg if you wish.

In a small bowl, mix garlic, ginger, cayenne mixture, vinegar and pepper. Add to the veg and mix well.

Add the veg to glass jars cover and let it ferment overnight. Taste and adjust the seasoning if needed. Store in the glass jars in the fridge. The Kimchi will keep fermenting in the fridge slowly. The Kimchi will keep for up to several weeks.
