Three, Two, One, and… Go

Today I finally get my studio space set up the way I want to.  We have had the space to do this for some time, but we have not had the time for me to go up and organize my piles of art supplies I have now filled a dresser with.

This means I will now have a stationary place to go and create, and that I can walk away and not leave a giant mess in my living space (this keeps me from doing a lot of things, honestly).  I can set up my iPad and watch….okay, listen to Netflix while I sculpt, draw and paint.  It means I can finally start building up stock (I even have a baker’s shelf for that!) and have some things to sell on my store.

Most importantly, it means I can start making the ideas I have instead of thinking about how awesome they would be.  I can start making custom clothing for myself again as well, as this is my sewing space too.  This is a good weekend.

Word of the Day: Productive

I’ve been a bit laggy about getting stuff made during my three days off, not because I wanted to be, but because I felt genuinely sick most of yesterday. I shook it off today and despite some serious stress and anxiety, I decided to be more productive and I got a whole whack of hair flowers and bows made. Also learning to deal with hot glue again (fingers, ouch) and make things both pretty and practical.

Tonight I was able to upload some pictures of finished products to my Facebook store page again *finally* and am hoping to do the same by early in the week. See that here. Ideas aren’t the problem right now, it’s the cash to make and package it all. That will come in weeks to follow. I also need to up my organization game because seriously, I am juggling craft stuff now.

 

BRAIN. BE QUIET!

It has become apparent that my creative inklings are nearly uncontrollable lately. I need to make things, every single day. I’ve been working on everything from making clothes to altering pre-existing clothes, as well as making hair flowers and painting. I have a very long list of things I want to make to add to my online store, as well as ideas for marketing and packaging these items for sale. I’m even exploring dollmaking (faeries and elves specifically) using polymer.

Current focus is the flowers, I think tomorrow I’m going to make some bows, I have some really awesome antique looking key charms that are begging to be attached to something. Also, I have skeleton patches awaiting attachment to a cardigan. These are pics of two of the flowers I’ve actually finished off.

 

Thank goodness I have three days off, I am going to need every hour of it.
