Hey guys, I know I am not very active here these days. I have PortCon next weekend, and after that I have SO MUCH to share with you guys! I have about 17 drawings to upload that I can't wait to share, among other things. I am trying to shift away from hats, and focus more on art and plushies, because that is what I have the most fun doing. Making new hats is fun, but when I make the same hats over and over for each convention, it get a bit tiring. Sadly I don't have as many hats as I normally do to bring with me to PortCon, but I'm OK with that. I have lots of plushies!
So far, plushies for PortCon includes: Giant milotic, Large Vaporeon, Large Minky Flareon and TWO Poros (SO cute I can't wait to upload them!). If I can, tomorrow I may try to make one or two more plushies. Casey also has a ton of little plushies he has made, and also has felt a bit burnt out from hats. Don't get me wrong, there will still be hats, just not as much variety as usual. I also ran out of time AND Fabric (because JoAnns decided not to stock like 5 colors I absolutely need for the past 2 months) and I didn't want to order online because of bad experiences in the past). I ended up using a lot of old hats I cut out and never sewed, so a few old favorites will be returning.
I have a new schedule at work, which makes me SO HAPPY and I hope means more time for are and COMMISSIONS. Oh my word, I can't tell you how upsetting it is to see how long it has been since I completed peoples commissions. I wasn't lieing when I said there is not set time for them to be finished, when I opened over a year ago. I wish I took on far less people than I did, because I hate making people wait. Everyone has been very understanding though, which I appreciate immensely.
So yeah, new schedule means I now work Tuesday-Friday from 8:30-7.... They are long 10 hour days but I love it! It doesn't feel longer than normal 8's and I get an entire extra day off. It is like having a 3 day weekend every weekend! For this reason, I have been able to focus on Art, and post PortCon, commissions are going to be my top priority. Anyone reading this who is still waiting, if you have waited long enough PLEASE tell me, I will remove you from the list. There is no way I would expect someone to wait that long, although many of you have been willing when contacted. I <3 you all. It was never the intent when I opened, life just got in the way...
I can't wait to share new things with you all, and hope to become more active here again
Please come visit my table next weekend if you are at PortCon. I'll be there all weekend.
Please tell me how you are all doing, I miss you guys!
