I am pleased to say that the past few weeks have been the most creatively productive in years! While it’s a shame it’s taken so long for me to get back in the swing of things, the personal satisfaction I’ve gotten from doing what I love successfully has proven that the changes I’ve made in my life have been for the best.
Last week I made my very first Etsy sale, a major milestone and hopefully a good omen. Sadly, I have yet to receive any feedback from the buyer. It would have been nice to know if she liked it.
I have also been working on several things for friends. My good friend Katie is an all around bad ass and spends a lot of time hunting. For her birthday I thought it might be nice for her to have a sort of talisman to bring her luck and strength during the hunt, so I put together a Deer Hunting Spirit pin for her. I had the Greek goddess Artemis in mind, though I obviously didn’t use her in a literal sense.
This weekend I made a couple of shirts for a friends anniversary involving Zombies (what’s an anniversary without Zombies?) and I am currently working on a little (belated) surprise for one very special and adorable goth. To stay in the mood, it’s been non stop Supernatural marathons in the living room. Unfortunately, this also means that paper scraps, boxes and art junk have completely taken over, but if everything goes according to plan I should be done and all cleaned up in a couple of days. Fingers crossed!
