Bead 693

Dealing with my ghost and my brain going crazy today..not so much a bad day just different..filled with motivation and somewhat despair at the same time, charged the digital camera battery but I think the old Kodak has finally bitten the dust... Not sure about photos getting back on this week but I'm going to try a few more things to see if I can get the camera back to a working order at least for a little longer...sorry guys :(

Bead 692

Difficult day...I woke up with the "your going to die alone with cats eating your corpse" feeling and unfortunately it stuck and digged in deeper, but today wasn't all bad, I finally started working again and actually cleaned up like picked stuff of the floor and cleaned off some shelves, and got some toys displayed better ^_^

Bead 691

I'm a borderline agoraphobic..I can  be honest
But I managed to get out and go to a cookout today
I was super shy but I did it! Yay! For slight progress and hope that'll get better at it soon....

Bead 689

a lot of back thinking and self reflection today....goodness knows self reflection and remembering is a great thing but since that's what I did the vast majority of the day I'm now exhausted by it...
I've been having to write a few words about myself as an artist and its been super difficult, especially today for some reason? oh well hopefully it'll pass....
todays bead was made with a small scrap of fabric that came from one of my favorite blankets as a child....seemed most fitting with all the recollection and self evaluation lately.

the charger for my camera is still MIA but it did have just enough juice to get todays picture, I'd been trying to get it to turn on over these past couple of days with no success until today

Bead 688

I feel like a coffee embalmed corpse right now...2 cups I had tonight to get through back to back meeting...both were fun and everything but dude did that coffee ware me out!
Both were art related meetings and I'm feeling pretty inspired and creative...if it weren't for the exhaustion I'm feeling right now..

Bead 686

Yeah I still haven't gotten my act together as I hoped and planned, I still feel super gross and ended up getting even worse then before, I did manage to get a little bit done but not enough to legit clean and count it as a good work day, painted an eye for a future sculpture and figure out my next project
Gold tinted bead today

Bead 685

I literally jut saw the fasted spider ever scurry across my bed...while I was in it....not a big spider...but it's freakish speed was enough to scare the bajebies out of me....I killed him on accident afew moments after that...and now I'm scared his super fast mourning family will come aft me now....yes I'm still discussing a spider who was probably the same size as a penny...but I'm paranoid about weird dumb stuff..most of today was occupied with nothing, I have to force myself a good "rest day" or I'll end up feeling worse then before whatever I did happened. It was a gray day inside and out , I tried to do activities that would cheer me up but unfortunately didn't go past just being there...
Tiny Yellow bead seemed like the color of the day...

(Still haven't got my act together with organizing and finding my cords and such to do a proper post here  but there's always really good hope for tomorrow )

Bead 684

Still in post event recovery, the skin on my back and arms are pinkish and is slowly becoming a darker brown shade...I tan oddly for a Latina, instead of automatically becoming a more dark brown I transitions from pink to golden slowly. I dunno why, it's just always been that way so I'll probably be a partially pinky squishy person for about a day more till I solidly turn a darker shade...all day was occupied trying to become a person again. I'm sore and swollen and stiff, like a little human husk (that's at least what I've been referring to myself as since yesterday) but I am happy to say for the most part I'm in better spirits, still a bit bummed out about my financial status but it will all work itself out eventually...I'm a optimist...a begrudging optimist...but I try and I'm happy so I guess that's what counts?
Pinkish brown bead

Bead 683

My event is over and I made 13$, not bad, and kinda what I expected to be honest...I'm different and I got tons of compliments of how cute, cool and creative my stuff was...just not many buyers which is okay. At least I went out doing things that love and there's always next time. I got to hang out with some cool folks, see some cool art, eat some yummy food and at least give it a good try.
Colorful bead to match my new shirt that one of my homies made

Bead 682

I hate those days where I randomly fall asleep, luckily this time it was actually in a bed, not slumped over on my work table or on the floor like usual...tomorrow is our big event, and I don't know what I feel right now to be honest, it's not nervousness or any emotion really just blah...hopefully I can sleep tonight so when I wake up at 5ish in the morning I can actually be a cheery human being for the whole day.....I can dream can't I? Today was occupied with the boring stuff , labeling , loading the car, making sure everything was pretty and accounted for....I believe that my half of the booth is going to look like a crazy persons yard sale...I have a lot of monsters and skull stuff....because apparently I'm made up of monsters and skulls...who knows?
 Trying to ignore the moderate feeling of discomfort that is surrounding me and look at the bright side, I'm going to be able to hang out with some great people all day tomorrow, eat some good food ( good food is a motivation to me I'm not going to lie! There's a couple dope sounding food trucks coming) and  hopefully sell a good amount of art....I keep repeating like a crafter version of the serenity prayer and chuckling in between lines, it's a big deal tomorrow because art is my JOB , though it has paid my bills sporadically it's still what I do for a kinda scary....
Blah jumble bead today

Bead 681

I never should plan to get things done, because my body will compleaty do the opposite of what I want....super migraine today that occupied a vast majority of my day. I sewed a little bit and sculpted some faces but other then that it was lying on the couch-floor- under the table trying to give my brain a break..

Bead 680

Really exhausted but I had a pretty good day.
Woke up early and went out to redeem a free breakfast for two that I won at a local cafe.

They make local, seasonal, and sustainable food and it was pretty yummy! I got sweet potato pancakes and fruit. Nom! After that a few errands like picking up a few new indoor plants and cacti, dropping some things off at the post office, escorting a turtle I named Shelby across the road on the way to the post office then back home to make monsters all day...lots of sewing, glueing, and painting and I completed almost all of them! 
Monster face bead today 

I promise to you on the life of my favorite yarn that beads are being made every day, I've just been on super flibber-de-jibbit mode this week because my event Saturday  and my workspace being in total beyond normal disarray...I'll post photos as soon as I possibly can once I find the freaking AWAL. Cord I need...

Bead 679

I finally had an epiphany today...very much needed especially for the way I've been carrying on lately, I've been internally beating myself up for a failure that hasn't even happened yet and hopefully never will.... I have an event Saturday my first really good legit booth as an artist and "adult".
I'd already decided that it will be a disaster
And that anything horrible that could happen; would happen and that it would signify yet another wound on my artistic soul......
I'm not normally that good at being a pessimist, but damn this time I was great at being one!  Luckily I have finally snapped out of it and feel like me again.
I love it was brought by kind words, a mild tantrum (I'll be perfectly honest I did throw myself on the floor and sob for about 3 minutes straight), and a good cup of coffee to bring  me back down to earth...I hope I can mentally stay here for a little while.
Coffee colored bead today

(Unfortunately epiphanys don't clean workspaces and I can't find the cord that'll cure my dead laptop so photos will have to come tomorrow....oops!)

Bead 678

I have spent all my day sewing..quite literally the whole day...from the time I got up till just a few hours ago..I'm tired my fingers and back hurt but for the moat part I got what I wanted to accomplish done....I was rewarded with cake from my sweet mama and also given a cute plastic ant

Bead 676

not a bad day, super rainy and gross to begin with ( a tropical storm was a brewing)
2 rainy not so great yard sales then home to nap for a few hours.
I have exactly a week till my event with my artist group in which I'll have a half of a booth of my artwork. I hope I'm not putting all my eggs in one basket but I'm desperately needing some supply and stuff money to keep me a float...I use all the money I get from selling art to get supplies to make more its an endless cycle of scrounging up all I can to be able to get the supplies to carry out projects that I want to do.
had a mild freak out of all the things that have got to get done for the booth I'm pretty far and got some progress done today: 4 plush bodies sewn, all tiny food sculpted and done, foundations of paint on creature faces and rings and a few more little things. for some reason a part of my brain snapped and decided to try to get everything physically possible done today as if the deadline were tomorrow....
lots of colors used so freak-out colorful bead today

Bead 675

Pretty good day, it was my kids final day of school, goodness love them!
A nice easy day to finish off the end of the year for them.
Kinda sad that 4 of my babies are moving to high school but I'm glad that they are moving up.
I got to see my sister and my furry nephew (her dog) and spend some time with her.
Hide artwork really fast downtown.
And finally returning home to a kickass mail day of one of my toys arriving! ^_^
A multi blue gread!

It's so pretty and I just love the figure so!

Bead 672

Tired, still sickly feeling but I did manage to get some work done, a lot of sculpting
In pajamas...normally I attempt to get dressed but today I couldn't even muster that...
Made faces, alien babies, tiny food....etc.
Orange seemed to be the feeling of today, I made lots of tiny cheese poofs too, that may be the main reason for the orange vibes today
Orange bead today

My fibro flare continued through today
So I had my first sick day in the longest time
Lot of rest and denying myself art making for a majority of the day
But I did eventually break down and make a few faces

Bead 669

chaos seemed to surround me a vast majority of the day, the morning was occupied with a 50 cents sale at my college...pretty self explanatory but it was composed of so many clothes, shoes, random stuff...and of course a ton of people. Mom  and I got some pretty great deals, 5 huge bags full of clothes all for $27.50
after that errands....dying of the heat and trying to clean up my room/workspace up...tons of stuff and a tiny space to work...
bead made of bits and pieces found while cleaning
