Busy summer, busy year. Still pretty neglectful in updating places, especially deviantart. My social media is pretty much automated through Buffer... when I remember to load it. You all know how bad I am at remembering to update things. Not sure how to get better at that.
So what's been going on...
Fur-Eh came and went. It was a lot of fun. Met many amazing artists, sold a ton of merch, really happy with how it turned out, and will definitely be back next year. Hope to drive down though, not fly. Flying is a pain in the ass. I loved my setup, people loved playing the capsule machine, and I have plenty of ideas for next convention.
Etsy store is currently offline, might stay that way until August because of how busy I am. I just don't have time to inventory everything right now. Also I have new inventory like fandom stickers www.deviantart.com/cindersdesi…
that can't go on Etsy so I may make a "mini store" here on DA.
I'm very busy, I have 6 badges to complete, and 1 plush, all due by end of July. I'm... hopeful I'll get them all done. Will be taking a day or two off work to play catch up.
I'd be working on them right now except much to my horror, I opened some boxes of my books to find there's a ink problem with a bunch of the covers. The ink is bleeding from one cover to another, ruin multiple books. I'm scared the entire batch of nearly 3000
could be corrupted. So this weekend I am inspected every. damn. book. separating the good and bad, and putting a piece of copy paper between each book, in a hope to minimize the damage. I don't know why this is happening, or to how many boxes. I'm hoping
it's contained to only a few boxes, but I won't know until I inspect all 25+ boxes. I've already been in contact with the printers though. They want to see more pics and know a count before we go farther. They've been supportive though, so I'm not too worried. ...this is those damned plush all over again I swear...Finally
got to see the Neurologist in Vancouver last week! Good talk, very nice Doctor. Ruled out any cancers, tumors, diseases, etc, so that's good. MRI, CT, Bloodwork, all normal. The Neuro was very impressed with my bullet journal and record keeping LOL. So... what's causing the migraines? It's just part of the bloodline, really. All of my maternal side has chronic migraine. Now I do too, only mine is "Without Aura
", meaning I don't get "warning symptoms" many do. So now that the big stuff is eliminated, it's time to attack the migraines with medications mean to prevent, not just abort them, so I'm starting the new roller coaster until I find stuff that works for me. As well as better medications to help battle when I get migraines cause by allergic reactions, such as bitches with perfume. Oh ya, did I mentioned I'm the lucky owner of an Epi-Pen now? One of my recent scent reactions got that bad
I landed my ass in the hospital for a few days, so my doctor is concerned the next one may be even worse. I hope I never
need to use it. That's what the new meds are for. Here's hoping, anyways.
Anyways, yah, busy. After I'm caught up on commissions... I don't think I'll reopen anytime soon. I want to focus on my business inventory. I want to triple
my stock variety for next spring. My Yukon trip did well, and next spring I plan to make it two weeks and do the entire highway, but I need a lot
more inventory for it. Also, I am hoping to get in either/both the Edmonton Expo and the Calgary Expo in 2019, so I need way more than what I have now. That's the plan anyways, build up stock for selling in the 2019 year.
So... yah, I think that's about everything for now. One small convention left, Yukomicon will be doing a mini 1 day con on August 25th in Whitehorse, so I'll be selling at that. Otherwise, hunker down and work.
Until next update!
