I took a nap this afternoon, because I had stayed up all night sketching, then had to get up early to make sure that I was ready for a customer, who was stopping by the house to pick up her custom pieces. Huge order from DragonCon that took ages to finish ( full scalemail skirt, full scalemail mantle, and a scalemail headband). She was my first $1K order of my life..and absolutely a sweetheart. Patient to the max, when I told her that I had gone through two moves, plus having to stock my shows, plus actually DOING the shows.. so she knew the piece was going to take a few months. Anyways.. she loved them. But afterwards, I was exhausted. So..nap time. 

Woke up from the nap to find that I had sold approximately $250 worth of stuff on Etsy.  Felt like I should apparently take more naps if that's what happens.

Then I heard the total number of deaths from the CT shooting. I can't even be heartbroken, it's so terrible. All I can do is be numb, and pray for the families. 

Of course it made me think of Landis..and his situation. He was an unmedicated for his depression, and bi-polar disorder. He SHOULD have been on medication. He used to be.

There are folks arguing on Facebook ..all manner of ways. Gun control, medication, non-medication. 

Sometimes, there are no answers. Sometimes, people just snap. 

I just keep hoping that one day, these families will know peace. Hug your loved ones people. Hug them lots.

Glad to hear business is doing so well! That's the best kind of tired.


As for the rest, yes. That's about all I got: yes.

While you were sleeping...Yeah. I say, more of that there online business.

I was kind of relieved that my external hard drive reformatting meant not being on the nets. It was overwhelming me to read all of the posts, all voicing different strong opinions with passion. I think that a casket is entirely wrong to use as a soapbox.
