New Year, New Look

Hello!

I just noticed that I have 34 followers today. Thank you guys for sticking with me despite my abominably slow updates. I want to post here much more frequently and the fact that so many of you are following me helps motivate me to do so.

As you can see, I’ve made some changes around here. I hope you like them. I felt that the previous color scheme was getting a bit dull and the black was bothering me. Normally I am very fond of black, however as we are held by the jaws of deep winter (still) in the Northern Hemisphere, I need something bright to look at.

I have also added a GALLERY! Yay! Currently it only has a few of my MANY works of art, but I hope to add more of my stuff in the coming days. I have over a thousand sketches on my computer not including things too big to scan and nice completed digital work. Phew!

In other news, I may have some big news for you soon. I am still in the R & D phase of this potential news, but foreshadowing is one of my favorite things. No it does not involve publishing my novel. I keep reminding myself to finish first and publish after.

I’m still unemployed (worry, me? Pfft, never…right) and it’s really bumming me out. I see characters on TV interacting with work fellows and suddenly not having a job hits me very hard.

I used to adore the weekend. I used to complain the weekend was too short. I used to wait for the weekend with bated breath because it meant more time to write. Now that I have all the time in the world to write (well until I starve anyway) I have found that I can only write so much in any given day. I take all the weekend comments back!

Okay, not really.

Still, I would very much like to have a job so that I can get back to complaining about how short the weekends are. I know that many people struggle at this time of year and that life likes to throw things at us when we are at our lowest. Wherever you are and whatever life situation you find yourself in, keep looking up. The darker it gets, the brighter the stars seem to be.

In that spirit, I have battled down my own insecurities and opened an Etsy shop of my very own. I called it MadiesMakes (mostly because MadsMakes was already taken). I am selling prints of my artwork and hand made jewelry (so far) and I hope to expand it in the future. The link is here. Please take a look if you like.

Thank you all for reading and STAY WARM!
