Getting my Etsy shop all ready so that it can go live tonight! I have been working on a lot of stuff for it and have way more ideas. After this first batch of charms I will be doing some awesome custom shirts. Today I'm getting the rest of my shirt designs finished for the upcoming weekend... not available in my shop. They are going to be awesome though!

It is a busy, busy day. I really need to get back to work but I wanted to write a bit over here. I am trying to get back in to writing more often. The next blog will probably be more pictures though. I have some awesome stuff that I want to share... sooooon!

Science Fiction Double Feature

It's exciting that I will be taking a class in science fiction and fantasy literature, because it works perfectly with my reading goals! This works out for me better than the 3 day science fiction workshop. There is going to be a lot of reading... 10 books in 8 weeks. Plus I will also have to write essays. I think it's worth it though.

Today I have been refreshing myself on a lot of graphic design stuff. It has been a little while since I went over a lot of the books and terms. I have been concentrating more on illustration lately. I might actually take courses for illustration on top of the graphic design classes, but I'm not sure yet. I will be back to school full time again in January, so I have a little while to figure that out. It is only four additional classes and I think it would be worth it.

I really don't know if I'm up for staying up nearly 3 hours through The Dark Knight Rises tonight. I am going to be so exhausted... I can feel it already!

I think it's fine that I'm downloading a bunch of fonts and looking at butterbeer recipes for my Harry Potter party because I finished my whole list of work yesterday. Wait... there is another list today? Yeah, I'm procrastinating. Again.

I can't wait until my California trip and I'm pretty sure I'm going to make some sort of candy calendar for that. Plus what is exciting is that by the time I get back it will almost be the time of the year when it really cools off. Autumn is my favorite season. The first cool breeze after a hot summer, making scarves, drinking hot tea... and pumpkin everything. Baking is another thing I'm really looking forward to. Cool weather means turning on the oven and making some good treats. Oh, and stews and soups! I think I am just hungry right now.

Greek food...
Clam chowder in a bread bowl...

Okay, okay... I need to get some food...

Summertime, feelin' fine

Making more polymer clay charms today! Finally I'm back to my normal self after a weekend of dehydration. Lots of water, lots of broth, lots of Doctor Who. Now I'm not only hungry and ready to start cooking normal things again, I am ready to start creating things again. I have a really big list of things I need to make. The problem now is where to start. There is a lot of coffee in my system now, so I should get a lot done today.

Ready for conventions to start! I just realized that the first is in less than three weeks. Time seems to be going by fast and slow all at once. Trying to prepare all of my stuff that I'm going to be selling. It sounds easier than it actually is. I really should be doing that instead of writing right now.

I need to get the first chapter of my novel edited as well so I can submit it for a writing class. So much to do!

Back again!

Wow, I haven't written in my blog since November! I was busy writing my novel... which I finished before the last day of the month! Still haven't gotten around to editing that, or even reading it over. When I was done, I was done. I am at the point now where I feel I should come up with a good plot for my next novel. I've got about four months to figure that out, so I should have enough time to come up with something good. Eventually I'll go back and edit my novel from last NaNoWriMo, but I kind of feel like I would be taking a lot of time rewriting bits of it. It really should have been a short story. There was a lot added into it.

Now it's Summer! The first official day of Summer seemed to have brought on the 100+ degree weather. I am not into it right now. I haven't gone swimming yet, but I've practically been dying to. I hate my feet getting burnt every time I go barefoot outside. I have to wait another two months for my California trip. That has been killing me too. It seems like it is just going to take forever. Once I'm there I'm going to be at the beach for sure. A two week vacation is something I definitely need.

Mainly my time has been spent going back and forth from city to city and trying to get a bunch of business work done. I have taken the weekend off from that and I've gone completely nerdy with my time. I have been finally watching season 6 of Doctor Who, catching up on My Little Pony, watching a bunch of YouTube videos. I'm also finally reading Mockingjay! I just got it two days ago and I'm about halfway through it. I had to stop reading for a bit, which is why I'm writing this, because I started getting a little emotional. I wasn't expecting that to happen to me. This year I was planning to read 50 books, but I have been really busy and this year has been going by super fast. I think I'm going to take the number down to 25 or quickly read a bunch of short books in December.
