Ever had one of those months?

Or more to the point, several of “those” months in a row? Well I’m here to tell you that sometimes it’s a struggle to get through it.

I’ve found through the love and support of a significant other (be it partner, spouse or just a good friend), and sheer stubbornness, one can muddle through.  And I was always told that being stubborn was a bad thing.

Without going into too much detail, I’ll say this: If you know someone who is a caregiver, especially when they take care of someone with dementia, give them a big hug…..they probably could use it. Got a few minutes? Stop by and say hello to them; ask if you can bring them something. Take a few minutes and just listen to them bitch, cry, or just talk. It will make all the difference in the world to them. Trust me.

On to more exciting things! I have been able to do a few shows. January was Retro City Con and the Tempe Library Fan Con. February I joined some other local artists here in Tucson to do The Tucson Flea that happens in different places every month or so. March was San Diego Rocket Con and Gila Valley Comic Con. May was ZapCon and Phoenix Fan Fusion. Now we’re into June and I was able to exhibit my art and needful things at the Las Vegas Artists Guild Art Expo . I also got to participate in Sinister Creature Con in Sacramento, with three of my friends! We packed up our vehicles and drove to Sacramento! That was a gas! Here are some of the photos from that trip and other shows this year:

Reid Park coming up this weekend!

The holidays are a really exciting time for me creatively speaking. We have shows booked every weekend through the end of the year and I really put a lot of pressure on myself to have new pieces for every show.

I have to thank my old boss Kaia for showing me how to work well with a strict deadline.

She would be at work before the sun came up and I’d show up I don’t know, 6:30 AM or so. She would’ve walked the entire bookstore figuring out what had to be done that day. Then she would come up with a list for me. She would bet me that I couldn’t get everything on that list done by the end of my shift. So I set out every morning with that list and a challenge to myself to get everything on her list done so she didn’t have to worry about it. She was my friend as well as my boss, and I enjoyed doing things for her. So instead of going someplace and having somebody give me a list, I make my own “Kaia” list every morning (or the night before depending on how crazy things are) and challenge myself to get it done by the end my “shift”. The only differences are that now my shift is 10 to 14 hours instead of eight, the list tends to be longer, and I don’t get paid for just showing up.

We’ve been working really really hard these last couple of weeks and have come up with some really beautiful new pieces.

And, not only are we bringing everything we’ve made to all of our shows now but we are also making a concerted effort to add every single box and tin to our Etsy site, making them available online as well as in person!

This is the latest going up on Etsy today:
