Shop till you drop!!

I just got back from shopping~! I really needed that break lol I felt so uptight this whole month about work and stuff.

I personally think I'm pretty good with shopping for groceries and art/craft supplies without straying from my initial goal. But when it comes to shopping for clothes and accessories I tend to go wayward a bit... Today I went to look for boots and a new purse but I came back with a miniskirt and t-shirts instead.

I feel like I don't have enough new crafts to upload... so I'll do sketches instead! >XD

Here's a super quick sketch of what my outfit was today modeled by Vesa, a character from a novel I am writing. And by the way, Vesa is a boy. (but I'm a girl of course lol)

Sorry for the lack of updates! I've been having some issues with gathering people to be models for my handmade accessories. Hmm, maybe I should just forget about real models and just draw fashion designs on my own. But its always fun to see other people's takes on my creations. It's a pretty big decision in my mind, leaving out the few friends who were trying to help me with the model issue.

Decisions decisions...

I'm still trying my best to prepare for the craft show in December along with finishing my portfolio for art class and managing my transfer to a new college. It's really hard to decide what has the most priority. -____-;;

Sorry about the negative post, but I thought I should at least update my blog so I wouldn't abandon it altogether (which can happen when I feel too overwhelmed with stuff to do)

Fundraiser Update

Woohoo!! The fundraiser was a pretty big success! We went over our goal in raising money to buy phone cards for soldiers overseas (so they can contact their family and friends) as well as writing some holiday cards for them. A small portion of what I raised at my booth is also going to PACT Humane Society to help pay for everyday needs for rescued cats.

I'm almost out of merchandise lol. I'm very happy that it went well but that also means I don't have much stuff left over to use in my next craft show event. Uh oh... time to get crafting again! (But I really need to work on my portfolio for school too urgggghh)

At the craft fair I snagged a pumpkin pie (shared it with a friend, I'd never be able to finish a whole pie), a necklace, and holiday earrings made by my partners at Noraneko Alley on etsy.

Thank you to those who were able to make it to the fundrasier!! :)

ゴールの金額を超える寄付金を集めることが出来ました。 この寄付金は海外にいる兵隊が家族や友達と会話が出来るようにテレフォンカードに変えてから送られます。 

私のブースの売り上げの一部はPACT Humane Society で捨て猫、野良猫、そして飼い主に虐待された猫などの保護、世話などに使われます。

イベントが成功したのはとても嬉しいけど次のイベントの分の商品がもうほとんど残ってない! ちょっと焦ってます。。。(ってゆーか先に勉強をしないと)

Wow, the craft fair is tomorrow!!! I can't wait!

On another note, my mom and a friend of our family decided to hold another small event in the beginning of December and they said I could bring a few things along too. Yikes, that's even more crafting!

I know I should be focusing on classwork and such but crafting is too much fun to give up for a long period of time. >XD

ついに明日はクラフトフェアー当日です! 緊張するけど楽しみにしてます。
