January 2, 2018

Welcome 2018!!

Hello on the New Year, everyone! I'll have you know I'm already having problems remembering that it's not 2017 but 2018 (and I almost messed up the title to the post - okay I did mess up the title, but I ended up fixing it before posting this so, in a way, I was using the correct date the whole time!)

The nice thing is that it's only January 2, and I feel like that gives me some leeway on my year mistakes. Two weeks from now I'll have no excuse other than I AM A VERY CONFUSED HUMAN so that's my story and I'm sticking to it.

Anyway, wanted to pop in here and see what I can do to spruce up the old blog. I've been getting a lot of stuff under my belt, and let me tell you - having a calendar hasn't helped my sense of schedule at all. Husband messaged me wanting to know the convention schedule in case he needed to mark time off and so I started compiling an actual list of shows I'm either vending, guesting, or just visiting.

I had 12 up through November, and that's not including the extra 4-5 I'm waiting to hear back on.

Don't get me wrong, I enjoy doing the convention thing, I am just trying to figure out how, even with a calendar of months I manage to overbook myself and now I'm already getting anxiety thinking about how little time I'll have to do things.

I also told myself one of my new resolutions for this year was to cut back on the amount of conventions I'm vending so I can actually focus on my artwork rather than just products. *stares at camera*

I have a host of neat ideas I want to work on - as I want to focus more on my artwork and have my cosplay still continue to be the fun hobby that it is! And with that, I also prefer doing educational panels over ANYTHING else, so hey, if you need somebody to come in and teach about cosplay *wink wink* lemme know.

And without further ado, here's some items on my checklist:

Ideas for the New Year

  • Go back to updating TalOS
  • Start my Patreon
  • Upload Art Process Videos / Start a YouTube Channel
  • Review some more how-to-art books here
  • Update the blog more (AHAHAHAHAH)
  • Update my Conventions List on the pages
  • Do more drawings for me!
  • Remember to post more on FB/Insta/Twitter


*looks at list*
*checks off update blog more*
*nods sagely*
Welp, that's one thing off the list!

Let's make 2018 a better one than last year (it was really rough for a lot of us).
