Where has all the fanart gone?

Journal Entry: Sun Mar 16, 2014, 10:12 AM
If you've been at my Storenvy shop lately you may be asking "Where has all the fanart gone?" I have retired those products, my friends. 

I have given my fanart stock to LillyInverse! She has permission to use all of the patterns, etc as I will not be making anymore myself.

This means that I will not be participating in artist alleys at conventions either as my new job does not have paid days off and has me working on Saturdays. :(

Not all is bad news though! :D I've decided that a portion of each of my full priced items will go to help those with student loan debt through Student Loan List. I have some new products to upload. I will be doing that soon! I'm also continuing my sale on the pinback buttons below:

Long Time No Update!

Journal Entry: Mon Feb 17, 2014, 3:14 PM
I'm so sorry for the lack of updates lately. I've been busy on the job hunt. I have a job interview tomorrow! ^_^

On the shop front, I have added new products to the shop and am currently working on making my perler art more functional by making them into magnets! :D Stay tuned for more updates on that soon!

Also, if you follow my Facebook page you will have seen that I have joined Instagram! I'm having so much fun getting to know the community there. :)

That's pretty much all I've been up to lately. I hope you are all doing well! :D

Anime Zap: The Small World

Journal Entry: Sat Jan 11, 2014, 10:48 AM

I have a fancy new journal skin! Hooray!

I'm so sorry it's taken so long for this post about Anime ZAP! I pretty much spent the entire week recovering. XD

The drive there was terrifying in that the hood of LillyInverse's car flipped up on the highway. You know that scene from Tommy Boy? Yep, it's as terrifying as you think it is!

After three men attempted and failed to ratchet strap the hood down in -15 degree weather, my friend's boyfriend finally walked me through it via phone. We were finally back on the road!

Our setup the next day had some gravity complications but we did it! I was able to get a picture below. :)

The rest of the con was so much fun! I met so many new artists, including: PaulinaChinea, BardicKitty, KileyBeecher, IcyPanther1 and, one from the Facebook group I'm a part of. It was so exciting meeting Alexis of Honeysuckle Rose Creations!

The ride home was awful due to the snowpacolypse. We ended up staying an extra night too! Snow was drifting over the highway so you could barely see more than 2 car lengths ahead of you. We kept having to scrap the ice off the inside of the car to see outside the windows.

Nevertheless we made it home safely! :D

Here are some cosplay pictures I snagged. You can see them all at my Flickr account!

A wild furry appeared!

My swag from the con, including:  a hat from MadQueens, the My Little Pony Collectible Card Game from Anime Fan Zone, a Twilight Sparkle figurine from IcyPanther's Art Shop, pinback buttons from Sweet Apple Tea and a Pikachu hair clip (I've lost the paper with the shop name on it. >_<)

I'll be posting more about my swag on my Facebook page soon!

My next convention is Animarathon on March 22nd! It's my coniversary! ^_^

LillyInverse and I can still fit on one table! We're hopefully going to be getting more than one from now on though.

Although we didn't break even at Con Alt Delete, we did make new awesome friends! And see some pretty cool cosplays! Pictures can be found here on my Flickr account.

We met shadowednavi (from Michigan!) and had CreationsFromTheWarp as a table neighbor!

The 31 Days of Sensational Shops are coming along nicely on my blog. I'm getting so much positive feedback on them! I'm so excited to show off these amazing artists and their work! :D

Anime-ZAP is next on January 3rd-5th!

Onward!

I've reached 200 likes on Facebook! Thank you all so much for the support! Welcome new fans!

In celebration, use the code "FBFAN" to get 20% off on all items in my Storenvy shop! Discount does not apply to custom orders.

It's not too late to contact me about a custom order! They will close for Christmas at midnight on December 12th!

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving! It's been a bit crazy over here with Cyber Monday, con prep for Con Alt Delete and soon you will be able to find some of my items in some consignment shops in Kansas and Missouri!

Yes! I am still around! I'm quite active on Facebook and Twitter so if you want to be in the up-and-up of daily business then you can get in on all the craziness there.

Things have been absolutely bananas this month! I apologize for not thanking for faves. I really appreciate all of them. I simply haven't had time to thank every one. I've had many custom orders, con prep for Con Alt Delete, NaNoWriMo, a large custom order of pins for a local steampunk bookstore (!O_O!), setting up the 31 Days of Sensational Shops on my blog for the month of December, getting my Storenvy shop ready for the StorenvyFlash30 sale I'm participating in for Cyber Monday (30% off everything on December 2nd!). I started a Pay It Forward album on my Facebook page to detail items in my shop and others that benefit charities. I started working at Jimmy John's again for 4 days a week...ALL OF THE THINGS! There's probably more that I don't remember right now..XD

Important announcement! Custom listings will close midnight December 12th so that I can work hard after Con Alt Delete to make sure everything gets out by December 20th for Christmas.

Thank you for reading this far. I hope your month has gone well!

Onward!

I did a blog post here but I didn't want to leave you guys out! 

Youmacon was a blast! Even though I came home with the con crud I saw so many people I haven't seen since high school and it was a total success!

I met some awesome artists as well:  xypher316, geothebio (Hey, table neighbor! ^_^), NsomniacArtist, Toxic-Mario, GlitterFox and more!

It was also fantastic to see CarouselAccessories again! 

I can't wait until next year!

My giveaway has ended! Thank you to all who entered. The winner has been emailed with the email address provided. I will be hosting another one later in May 2014 to celebrate my Envyversary of my Storenvy shop.

LillyInverse and I are going to be at Animarathon 2014! I'm so excited as that's my conniversary!

And, finally, NaNoWriMo is in full swing! You can help out NaNoWriMo by purchasing my Keep Calm and Write On 1.25 inch pinback button. 50% of the sale price will be donated to NaNoWriMo on December 1st! It also comes in magnet form for no additional charge! My goal is to donate $25 to NaNoWroMo and I'm 10% there! Please spread the word!

Onward!

Nyancon was fantastic! I went with LillyInverse. It was so great to meet arrowchild, my table neighbor ^_^!

I don't have any pictures as it was so busy that we didn't even have time to even pee until the vendor area closed!

We will definitely be going again next year. I wish we could sign up now for next year. :D

Youmacon is next and I'm super psyched! I will see many of my students from when I worked at IADT along with the friends we made a MetaCon! :D

What a crazy week! I was finally able to get my laptop back in commission last night after spending a week figuring out what was wrong, purchasing a new hard drive (thankfully that's all it needed) and, working with a friend to get an operating system installed.

I can't believe I was only without a laptop for only a week. It seemed so much longer! And let me tell you, having to navigate the internet and run online shops with just a tablet is not my favorite thing! >_<

A lot has happened in that week though:  I set up a Twitter and Pintrest, I've gotten a lot more involved in the Storenvy community via Twitter and the #SEchat, I made my first sale on Storenvy (I just saw it was delivered this morning too!)! and, I reached 100 likes on my Facebook page! Wo-ow!

Still no word on the job front. I've been unemployed for two months now. Not even Target or Kroger is calling me back. >_<

But, I have some new button designs that I'm itching to get posted. Now that I have my laptop that reads an SD card I can do that. It's been killing me that I haven been able to share!

Look for a giveaway on my Facebook page soon to celebrate my 100 likes! ^_^

Also, I did set up a Google+ account too. Feel free to take a look!

Whew! So you are all brought up to speed of my crazy week of crazy. Nyancon is this Saturday and I will be going with LillyInverse. We each get our own tables this time again! :D

My laptop has officially died. I am currently working on my husband's tablet as he needs his computer for his online schooling. Normally, I don't tend to share my personal hardships with you guys but we really need your help.

The crafting seen here is our only source of income at the moment as my job search has not yielded results in two months. We've already had to buy a new tire for the car due to a flat, replace the battery as that died too and, home insurance is due next week. So, it's all coming to a head now.

Please look at my gallery and consider helping me out with a purchase. My Etsy has more button designs on it that I haven't been able to get on Deviantart or Storenvy yet.

Thank you for reading and thank you for your time.

Hello! I totally forgot to write about NMACon yesterday. >_< LillyInverse, who went with me, did though and she has pictures too! 

NMA Over, Onward to Nyancon and Beyond! :DHello again everyone! I'm still celebrating the awesome fun that was Northern Michigan Anime Con, but I figured I should get into the habit of updating even when I'm busy having fun :3
NMA was great fun! I went with the wonderful LittleHouseCrafting (who had her own table) and the awesome DJM who is the main host for the Nanashi Anime Podcast which I cohost. We stayed in LittleHouseCrafting's family cabin up in Baldwin, which was about an hour south of Traverse City itself.
We went fishing, one of my favorite pastimes! And, of course, LittleHouseCrafting (who hadn't been fishing since she was little) was the only one to catch anything. Five perch, one of which was a pretty big one!
And then this little guy... xD
Even though I didn't catch ANYthing, it was still fun. We got a nice pontoon ride around the lake and saw a pretty sunset...
And lots of loons.
Not just the ones in the boat either ;3
Later that night, we brought out my giant telescope (10


Another friend also went with us, DJM. It was great to be able to spend more time with him. :D

We were able to stay at my family cabin, which was an hour away from the con. We went fishing and star gazing on Friday night! I caught all of the fish! No one else did! I was so excited as I hadn't fished since I was like 10 and don't remember ever catching a fish. LillyInverse's journal has pictures of that. She also has details about the star gazing with her awesome scope!

This con was the first time that I had my own booth. We were able to get two tables and decided to try having separate tables as a trial run for Nyancon. I took a video! You can find it here!

The strangest thing was that I sold more at NMACon, which had 300 people, than at MetaCon, which had 2,000 people. o_O I think it was because there were a lot of people at NMACon that were all about Pokemon so I was given a lot of attention. Patrons kept returning to my booth with their friends saying, "See! I told you it was here!" It made me all warm and fuzzy. :D

Nyancon is next! I will be going with LillyInverse. It's October 5th so we have some time to prepare. Then Youmacon is after that. I'm psyched and terrified all at the same time as I've never been there before. Much less had an Artist Alley booth. XD

Today, I will be posting a lot of things that are missing here on DA. I have buttons that I made for Go!Daikocon that aren't up yet. Sorry guys!

Onward and upward!

That's right! LillyInverse and I just got back from MetaCon this morning at 6am. It was a super long, super far drive. 11 hours one way without stopping, which we did. XD

MetaCon was so much fun! We made so many new friends. It was so great to meet clarkegilmore, Lemonpez and, ThatNegligenceGuy!

And, I made an adorable commission!

Meet Noteworthy! :D

I also went to a Steam Powered Giraffe concert for the first time.

Hatchworth is definitely my favorite. I purchased one of his bracelets and he signed it! ^_^

But, no rest for the weary as we have restocking to do for Northern Michigan Anime Con this weekend in Traverse City, MI! I'm super excited as my dad has offered LillyInverse and I to stay at the family cabin, which is about an hour away from the con! Free lodging, cable and a jetski will be a great way to wind down after Artist Alley. :D

Finally, my new printer is available for pick up! It was such great timing as I was able to get a printer, a ream of paper and an 8GB flashdrive as a bundle. I love back-to-school sales!

After NMACon, I will be prepping for Nyancon and Youmacon in October. Then, LillyInverse and I will finish out the year with Con Alt Delete (formerly Domocon) in December. It's all going so fast! O_O
