"In a Nutshell" is an ongoing series, reminding myself that's it okay to look back on mini-accomplishments before focusing on the now.
This month was tough, you guys. Normally, I love the holiday season, but this was the first Thanksgiving I didn't get to spend with my boys and it was pretty hard. I missed them terribly. Thankfully, it was only for a few days, and we still have Christmas to spend together, but I don't think I can ever go through that again. Oh geez, how am I going to survive those boys growing up and having lives of their own? I'm such a wimp - haha!
In shop news, thank you so much to everyone that shopped small this past weekend! Usually, I am better at preparing for the biggest sales weekend of the year, but I am so swamped with life outside of the shop that I dropped the ball on promoting the sale. To make up for it, I will be having surprise sales the first few weeks of December! Stay tuned!
Now for November 2017 in a nutshell:
I made a little stop-motion video earlier in the month, but man I need to figure out the lighting. Any tips?
Teaming up with one of my favorite snacks, Cuties, was awesome!
Being Disneyland annual passholders, Pat, Brody, and I got a chance to watch Disney Pixar's Coco a week early and we L-O-V-E it! I can't wait to buy it for our collection.
Speaking of Disney, I worked on Disney-inspired DIYs: Moana labels, Thanksgiving party game, Big Hero 6 fashion, card for mouse ear collectors, and a holiday shopping list!
I redecorated Louie's bed with some colorful, bilingual, handmade items, so naturally I took pictures before he destroys them later - haha!
Due to my work schedule, I've fallen behind on the everyday holiday book. I hope to rework it and finally start the drafts for illustrations. If you would like to help fund my project by becoming a patron, feel free to visit my Patreon page. As always, thank you SO MUCH to my current patrons who continue to believe in me!
I am still floored that tomorrow is already December. Eek! Let's make it a good one, shall we?
