So... hi guys, I'm alive. Stressed, exhausted, but alive. Been working hard to try and get our DC Designs Cakes & Crafts business rolling. Not gonna lie, it's been hard to find free time for stuff. I see my business partner more than I see my husband these days. But the website is up, slowly building up orders and trying to keep the Facebook up. That said, everything else has pretty much been put on the back burner.
That being said, I'm looking into art I can do without the computer, such as getting back into water color painting and learning pyrography (wood burning). Why the change? Because I'm a graphic designer during the day and honestly, I'm tired of staring at my screen to make even more stuff on the computer. Does this means I'm stopping my digital art? No, not at all. But I'd like to do OTHER things from time to time.
For those curious, no I will not be attending Nekocon. In fact, the only other convention I'll attend this year is Anime Mid-Atlantic's Cosplay Fest at the end of the year. This is mainly due to me being in charge on the artist alley. I will be there as "DC Designs" though, and so I'd like to try and sell my wood art and traditional stuff, as well as my partner's jewelry and ornaments. I may still sell prints, but I honestly haven't figured everything out. I won't be accepting commissions I know that, but beyond that I don't know what the game plan will be as of yet.
Oh, if you're curious about it, here's our website: dcdesignscakesandcrafts.com/
I'm trying to not feel overwhelmed. When I stress I get sick, and I don't want to get sick. Have a hard enough time trying to keep my son from being sick, lol. Not that he needed to be back in school to get sick often, but it certainly doesn't help. He needs a bubble, lol.
I'm hoping that with the holiday season coming up, that will mean I'll have more down time at work, which means I can work on art while at work. How exciting is that? I don't want to jinx myself though, so I won't get too hopeful.
Why does adulting have be so... hard. XD Anyhow, I apologize for my silence. I hope everyone has been well. Until next time, take care!
