So guess what, I'm sick AGAIN >< I don't know why and I absolutely hate it because it's killing my productivity. Along with being scheduled more at work and the holidays getting in the way, I've been a little behind schedule on everything. I was hoping to get the most out of my December but I disappointed myself there. Weeelp, time to move forward from here.
If you were interested in purchasing a resin blank from my webstore, Jan 1st was the last day to save $10 for New Years! Sale is over now but keep in mind that I am behind on orders so it'll take 3 weeks or so to get to you if you order anything right now. Still, I won't be having another sale for quite awhile so I can focus on finishing orders and creating new product.
Speaking of new product, for Christmas I received an industrial compressor and compression chamber- meaning that I can now do airbrush work AND pressure casting! This means that I will now be offering resin eyes because with my new toys, I can pressure cast them to be completely bubble-free. I'm adding them to the webstore right now. Jawsets and pawpads will be next, then I can move onto fixing my dragon blank and starting on the feline sculpt. Send me a note or an email if you have any questions (email@example.com)

So a lot of shit went down last month... long story short my graduation date has been pushed from March to June 2013 and my parents are no longer financially supporting my living costs in Denver. They are luckily still paying for my school but the rest falls onto me to pay rent and have enough to eat every month. Lots of new responsibilities and work ahead of me to pull everything off. I'm hoping this will be a good thing for me to get more organized and stay on top of things.
I'll be updating my Newsletter this week with more detailed craft info and also starting making use of my website's blog. This month's overview: I will be doing a lot of webstore orders, I will be turning 23 on January 12th, I start school again on the 7th (too soon!), and I'm attempting to make and finish my Riley the German Shepherd Dog half suit in time for Further Confusion Jan 17-20. I recently cleaned out and re-organized the entire storage room area and now I have a proper work studio for my crafting.
Lastly, I gotta talk about my holidays a bit :3 I think I got some pretty bitchin' gifts for people this year.
For my brother ~ReyTiger I commissioned a beautiful, custom MLP plush from *fireflytwinkletoes of his original character Frost Byte. My parents I commissioned an original painting of my dog Charlie, who passed away this year, from *MorRokko which I got professionally mounted and framed in museum glass.
For the rest of my friends, I seriously cannot thank the talented and inspiring =Miss-Melis for tackling a HUGE request and doing each one so much cute justice! Take a look! (also a few are late so there's a handful we're still working on finishing up) Melissa... you are an art GOD!!!
Whew! Hope everyone is doing well, I look forward to the new year!
