Recently, things haven’t been great. Since the start of the year I’ve been sick and overall feeling awful. (turns out I have strep) Because of this I have missed a pretty significant amount of work (due to the fact that I only work weekend). On top of that my car is in need of some major repairs and my good friend Josh’s recent move to San Francisco has reminded me just how much more I need to save if I still want to move out there (and, yeah, I guess, visit him too).
So, I have decided to have a bit of a sale. From now until Feb 1 (at 11:59 EST) I will be offering 15% off to all buyers using the code STREPONIT (heh, see what I did there?). This applies to all of my shop, including all of my most recent additions:
Make and Mend, $12
and much more!
Reblog! Tell your friends! Please help a sick, pathetic art student out!
Visit my Etsy and don’t forget to use the code STREPONIT for 15% off!
So today was supposed to be painting, but then I realized that all my paints are at school and all I have is watercolor (and watercolors are kinda lame). Because I was paintless and this is my challenge to myself and I can do whatever I want, I decided just to do more sewing. So, you know, deal with it.
(it’s a satchel. Indiana Jones wears one.)
I think I may add something to it, but I’m not sure. I told myself I would make more stuff for my etsy over break but I quite like how this one turned out and my other bag is looking a little ragged. But I think I’ll list it and if no one buys it in like a week I’m totally keeping it.
Well, this week has been…well it’s been. To be honest, it just feels forced to do projects just for the sake of doing projects. I think I would have enjoyed doing some of the projects more if I actually had the inspiration to do it rather than doing it because I feel like I have to. But that’s the problem with being an “artist” I guess; truly good work come from an unexplainable spark of inspiration, but those sparks are pretty few and far between.
So, this week in a nutshell: I made a pouch, a lone sock, a drawing, a lino block and prints, a papercut design, some photos, and a satchel. Also ended up with a wounded finger and four (!) broken sewing machine needles (seriously, I think before this week I’ve broken 4 total in my life).
It was interesting.
