Upcoming contest....

I'm going to run a contest through September on my facebook.
 I'm doing it over there because it's primarily for my business side. I want to increase my visibility before the holidays, I'm sure you all understand...  so I didn't want to do TOO much cross over to this blog, where I focus more on the creative parts but I did want to let you all know! You're all certainly welcome to participate if you'd like.

Anyway, it will start on Monday and run through Tuesday September 30th. The details will come out Monday, but for now...I want your guesses. What do you think the prize will be?
I have something I think is pretty awesome in mind, but I'd also love to hear what you think. You might even change my mind if you come up with something better! :)

So much is going on!!!



Where to start. Ok, what am I working on these days? 
I have some ideas of some fun things to include over here, so I've been playing with that and I'm going to share my VERY first attempt with you. 
It's rough. .... like really rough especially the sound but I didn't know what I was doing and once it was posted I didn't know how to edit it.

You can also view it on vine here if that doesn't work for some reason.. https://vine.co/u/1115110625354321920


I am working on a few other things that are for a project I can't really talk about yet, but I can show you and hopefully in a couple weeks I can tell you more!

And I've been hard at work on sneakers with back to school happening.
These are the latest.... but I'll have a couple more pair to show you by the end of the week!

 


So what have all of you been up to?

Sorry, sorry, I know it's been 9 days.

I promise to get back to blogging, it's hard in the summer, the kids are home and want to hang out, there is hula hooping to be done, Doctor Who marathons to have, you know, STUFF!

School goes back in just over 2 weeks here so I think I'm going to launch a back to school contest when it does and I hope you'll participate. Anyone want to help get the word out because I think people aren't looking cause I've been so quiet!
Template will be here next week as well.
The good news is that my Etsy shop has been busy, so.... I have been funneling my creativity there, because well... paying customers, but I don't want to neglect all my creative friends either I just haven't gotten here. I'll do better!

I don't really know how to bring it up but I think it's important to talk about, I haven't felt very chatty because
I was really saddened by the passing of Robin Williams. I've never cried over a celebrity death before, but this one hit me harder than I like to admit. I admired him greatly, he actually met (albeit briefly) and was very kind to a close friend of mine once and on a different occasion to someone I'd gone to school with. What that tells me is that in addition to the loss of an amazing entertainer, the world lost a good man, and that's something that we should all feel.

My hope in the this is that it does open up some honest conversations about depression and suicide.
That it will encourage people to realize that it isn't a selfish act, that it is a desperate act of someone who is very tired of living in pain.
Check in on those you love and if you need help, please reach out.

You'll be missed Genie. <3

I haven't been slacking, but I haven't been posting

This is hardly a real post either.

I've been super busy with a ton of projects and I just haven't had a lot of time to post.

I did make some pretty math.... I'm not in love with it, but it has some cool pieces to it. I'll keep practicing!


I made some sales on my Etsy shop so I've been focused on those, I think I'll post some of the completed when they are done and I created some cute stuff to send to a friend. (These got made into a set of notecards)

Also, I played with chalk which was awesome. More pretty math. :)

What has everyone else been up to?
