Goals as a Textiles Artist

Just something I started thinking about when I first started making hats :) Some are more long term than others, but they're all pretty big steps.

The top three are the originals, but I would always like to keep at least five incomplete goals here just to keep looking forward :aww:

:star: See someone at random wearing one of my hats somewhere (excluding myself lol or a friend)
- saw someone wearing Umbreon at Anime North 2013 :)
:star-empty: Make a hat of one of my OCs (Kyoya, specifically)
:star: Be commissioned to make a hat of someone else's OCs
- made Star-Tiger's OC, Kiaa
:star-empty: Make a kimono (not an authentic one, just an interpretation of one)
:star-empty: Make a Garrus Vakarian sweater
:star-empty: Make a plushy of one of my OCs
:star-half: Be commissioned for five cosplays (currently at 4!)
:star-empty: Help a friend make their first self-made costume



:star-empty: - incomplete
:star-half: - working on it currently
:star: - SUCCESS!!! WOOH!

Update - what life's like these days

Journal Entry: Thu Oct 16, 2014, 8:19 PM
Just a quick update on how September and October have been since I stopped accepting commissions;





- omg THE SLEEP! It's beautiful. I forgot what it was like to not always be exhausted (for the past 3 years, getting 6 hours of sleep in one night was like winning the jackpot)

- I was starting to loose passion in my craft work, that's what really scared me. But how could I not when it was causing me (when combined with school) to get barely sleep and always using up personal/drawing time, and then I'd get that one nasty disrespectful message from an impatient client now and then, and it'd feel so terrible, because I'd be pushing myself so hard and they'd act like I didn't give a crap or I wan't good enough because I couldn't do it faster. But I digress! The good news is, I'm so glad to see how quickly that passion has returned, now that I'm not overworking myself with it. I have a gift in this field as I first began to discover three years ago, and it's be a shame if I gave up already

- omg my neice SO CUUUUUUUUUUUUUTE!!! To be able to make the time to go visit little baby Eryn has maybe been the best part, she's such a perfect little girl. I can't wait until she's old enough to laugh and smile and play with

- it's obviously still busy, being in 4th year and trying to sleep a good amount every night, but just having some free time to take breaks and take care of myself...gotta say, it's been great!!!





That being said, this week has been extra busy because I have quite a few plans this weekend (hooray for having time to make plans and do fun things!!!) so I had to get ahead with school so I wouldn't have much to do on the weekend. Next week I have quite a few projects due, so though I will still be online, I will be and have been on slightly less. I'll probably just skip most deviations, so I don't have tons piled up to try and get through. So if you upload anything between last week and Oct 27th-ish that you want me to see, feel free to send it to me and I'll be sure to comment :)
