sponsored by the Quilters Club of America. Contest is open to the USA and Canada (excluding Quebec).
Seems like a pretty good contest for anyone that does sewing or just a lot of fabric-related crafts. :O Apparently you can enter more than once for better odds, as well.~
I think this is important information for everyone. Also totally relevant to today’s society.
…But not this blog so much. ;D
So… they didn’t teach what vowels and consonants are in public school in the US, either (I went to private school for K-4, skipped 5)? I guess it’s not too surprising since there was no mention of many grammar-related topics. That’s just said.
PS: A vowel is any of the following letters in English: a, e, i, o, u, and sometimes y. Consonants are the rest of the letters.
PPS: The concept of vowels/consonants is more complex than “it’s these letters” and is not restricted to English, but it’s fine if you know only that much. Wikipedia.
First item officially posted in my shop! Yey.
I had way more trouble with Illustrator than I thought I would, even though I know I hate Illustrator and how user-UNfriendly it is. I don’t understand why Adobe didn’t modify Illustrator to at least be a more similar layout to Photoshop when they acquired it. Instead they just tacked some more functionality onto it.
Needless to say, I used both Photoshop and Illustrator and battled through:
- discovering Paint Tool SAI’s vector lines weren’t really vector or, at least, don’t save as such
- some wonky colour profile from my monitor messing up my workspace colours
- Illustrator generally not doing what I want it to and not having features it should have
- building ~5? templates for future work so I don’t have to do as much busy work and can just draw
- figuring out the little-known features of Photoshop that I haven’t used since that one graphic design class I took
- still not knowing enough
What a mess! But hopefully next time (tomorrow) will be smooth-sailing. :> I already have my next project lined up and partially started.
I’m trying to force myself to keep to a “work schedule”. Basically making myself work when I might not want to, but also quitting work when I might not want to. The latter is hardest. ._.; I worked for 12-13 hours straight today, with only potty breaks in there—well, I’m still technically working, doing the social/promotion aspect thing.

Tomorrow I’m adding a bunch of back-to-school and autumn themed stuff to my Etsy shop.
Most of the back-to-school items are geared toward high school or college students (or relatives that scrapbook for them) and are more fun and mature compared to what you’d normally get in a back-to-school set. I really didn’t feel like rehashing the same images (books, pencils, etc.) that seem to be sold everywhere else during the time school starts. Kids grow up and I really don’t think elementary school themes suit them into high school. ;D
Because of the more “mature” theme, there ended up being a heavy focus on journalling stuffs, but I’m liking how things are turning out. Many of the items can easily be used as digital scrapbook embellishments, Project Life components, or web design elements, as well as the more obvious journalling embellishments.
I wasn’t going to share my sketches because they’re pretty messy and hard to understand for anyone else… But what the heck! Most of the writing will be done with actual fonts or at least much more neatly.

I've been drawing and painting before I even hit my teens and have done various crafts my whole life. My interests are rather varied and, as such, it is difficult for me to "settle" on one direction to take... so I refuse to.
I have a high appreciation (not to mention envy) for works that employ high quality craftsmanship while maintaining spontaneity.
I've recently opened a small Etsy shop selling digital work, but my shop won't be the main focus of this blog. However, I will be putting up some tutorials for suggested use of some of the items I'm selling as well as perodically talking about my working progress/process.
