Rants, Rambles, and Raves
Updated the Projects Page with the colouring book (finally). Updated the Commissions page, a little bit of tweaking here and there. Really need to stop neglecting the site! ^^; I post actively on my Instagram as well as Facebook if you’re looking for more recent updates! If only there was a way to update all at once for us lazy types…
WOO! She’s finally done! I am so pleased to get this girl finished and show off her, and my new pony pattern! She is 20 inches (50cm) from her hooves to the top of her horn. She is made of Minky, fiberfill fluff, and upholstery foam. She is mostly machine sewn, with hand sewing to attach the horn, mane, and tail. Her eyes and cutie marks are embroidered, while the colors on her mane and tail are applique. Inside her hooves is corrugated plastic, so they are flat on the bottom.
Last few weeks have been crazy busy. Moved my art room (again). I’ll post pictures once it’s finished but for now, here’s a quick pic of my toy collection (not counting plushies), that’s in my new art room. The Pinkining is at hand! XD
Seriously though, I hope to be able to get working on projects soon! I’m doing some digital cleaning too. I deleted the tilastrinity Instagram because honestly, I just didn’t care enough to use it. Also disabled the Mythological Minis Instagram and page for now, because I have some other projects to focus on first. They’ve been neglected for so long, I feel bad leaving mostly empty pages up. Once I return to that project I’ll relaunch them. Eventually. Might also do some purging of other accounts.. I’ve been working to focus my projects both on and offline, so it’s time to get rid of things I don’t use, need, or are adding unnecessary stress.
I am proud to announce the launch of my new colouring book! A Yukon Colouring Guide contains 18 pages all about the Yukon and it’s communities! I’ve spent the past year working on this project and I am so glad to see it’s completion. The final book is letter size (8.5″ X 11″), and each page has facts and other interesting tidbits about this territory I call home. All artwork is by myself, and in the back of the book is a resources page where you can find many web links for more information about the territory and it’s communities. It is an all ages book, and is great with crayons as well as coloured pencils! The book is for sale on both my main shop, as well as my Etsy.
I would like to thank all of my wonderful sponsors, without you, this book wouldn’t exist!
I will be at Yukomicon from August 25th to 27th! My table is around the middle of the floor, I should be easy to spot, I’m going to have a large banner! I’m really excited about the con and it will be the launch of the Yukon Coloring Guide Colouring Book! Stop by and say hi! 🙂
Been working on the site store. I’m pretty sure I’ve fixed the crazy shipping module on it now, so it should be accurate without making prices insane. I hope. Love spending $100 on apps that don’t work… if it’s still going crazy please let me know. WooCommerce is… fussy.
Anyways, there’s not much new in the store right now (I did add some Sailor Moon necklaces that were on my Etsy), mainly I’m just getting it ready for the Book launch! I received the final proof last week, and it looked amazing! The colouring book went into full production yesterday morning! It should be completed in about a week. I’m so exited, it’s almost here! Then I will have the big launch on the site and my social media!
I fixed up the site, was not happy with the blog. I really don’t like having to click to read a full post, so why should others? Put the blog back to a more basic look, which suits me fine. Also, I wanted my damn gifs back!! XD I was so annoyed when Divi got rid of the option for grid blog mode! Finally, moved some things, brought the store to the top and added a nice banner for it, since well, I am attempting to sell stuff LOL. I think I’m done. For a bit. Maybe.
Hi all! Again, sorry for radio silence, been working like a madman trying to get everything done! The colouring book is 3 pages away from completion, and will go to printers July 31st! Super excited about that! After that, last minute convention prep PANIC! Won’t that be fun?! Back to work for me for now, next big site update will be the COLOURING BOOK LAUNCH! Stay tuned!
Sorry for radio silence on the site, I keep forgetting it when I update everywhere else. Bad Llama. lol. Trying to get things done, so much do to, do little time! Doesn’t help I’ve been fighting non stop headaches for weeks now. Doc’s…not really sure what’s going on at the moment. We’re tried headache meds, allergy meds, sinus meds, antibiotics…nothings really helped. We suspect the sinus but aren’t really sure. I go see a specialist early June, I hope to get some answers! In any case, I am still working away at prep for Yukomicon! Really excited that it’s back on this year! I already have my table booked! I’m hoping to have my Yukon Coloring Book ready for con as well! So I have to fight through these headaches and get things done!
