What a week. I know it’s Monday, but when you work from home, you kinda lose that sense timing that comes with a work week…
October has been such a busy month for me! These last few days especially have been stressful as I’ve been preparing for that Full Moon Shop update… I was hoping to have my threadless shop updated and ready to go, but OMG you guys… they need to refigure their system or something. I’ve spent ALL day yesterday (and today!!) trying to upload and work on designs and very little has happened. I’ll get into that more in a bit…
Cause there are some things that are working… Like my newest design!
It’s a magic heat reactive mug!! I literally created this with myself in mind and my prototype will be here tomorrow. I’ve been checking the tracking every hour like a weirdo. I’m really excited. I hope you guys like it.
It starts off black, but when you pour your hot beverage in, the words “Witch’s Brew” appear along with a cat, a cauldron a witches hat and some other fun little elements.
I am selling these over in my Etsy shop! Once I see how well it does, I will be adding some more designs. They hold 11 oz of your favorite brew, and are dishwasher and microwave safe apparently. I will be heading to the Post Office the moment I receive the alert that it is there.
New Prints in the Etsy Shop!
There are also 8 new Fine Art Gicleé prints of the new mini series of Fortune Telling Signs. The sizes range from 8x10 inches all the way to 16x20!!
These prints might be black and white, but the quality of the ink is amazing and the paper is nice and thick, similar to watercolor paper.
And for those who can’t afford the larger prints or don’t want to wait… I’ve also listed 4 of them as digital downloads for only a few dollars! It’s an instant download so you can print at home or send to your local printer! (If you are a patron, you currently have access to all 4 of these!)
I also finished listing all of the new mini art prints in the Etsy Shop!
These art prints have been available for some time now, but I have only a small number of them in the smaller sizes. These are signed and ready to ship!
I’ve been meaning to get these listed for forever… and it feels good to finally have them in the shop!
I wanted to have some cheaper options that were still high quality for the holiday season ahead. Most of the prints are under 11.00 and shipping is only 2.00. If you order over 35.00, your shipping is free!
Okay, so the thing with Threadless… Wow. It’s been frustrating. I was even in contact with one of the people there about the issue and they weren’t all that helpful. (At least they answered and got back to me quickly!! Have you ever tried to contact Etsy’s customer service? HAH!)) I don’t mean to complain…I truly love the companies I get to work with and all, but OMG I have so many other things I could and should be doing rather than waiting on a “Loading…” screen that never actually loads! I get it, I’m working with big files, but sheesh.
OKAY. Rant over. I’m actually loving the things that ARE saving.
I’ll be adding more stuff to the Threadless shop over time, but for now, check out what is up!
There actually ARE a lot of things in there that are working. And some things that are not. You probably will find some products there that are mis-centered and “off".” If you want it, email me and I will try to get it fixed… but I’m afraid if I don’t sign off the computer in the next hour, I will start crying. Again.
I’m definitely going to be ordering myself tons of stuff to test out and see what the quality is like. I’ve never actually done a shop like this… Threadless has tons of great reviews from their customers. I even own some shirts from there! So I know the quality is amazing. I’m just really sick of sitting at a computer when I have so many other things I want to be doing… Like making the actual art. I am NOT made for the technical shit. I’d rather be painting or working on my Inktober Goddess Series!
So far this inktober has been a lot of fun. I have loved learning about the different Goddesses and working with then through the day as think on how I’m going to paint their portrait. Follow me on Instagram to see the daily updates! Once I publish this blog post… I’m heading over to my art table to work on tonight’s prompt.
This inktober challenge has definitely been a challenge… I’ve been staying up pretty late in order to finish the prompts, and then getting up really early to work on the shop updates. (Another reason why I’m so frustrated things aren’t loading properly!)
My pets stay up with me the entire time. We all sleep in the same bed, and I can tell they are really sick of the late nights and early mornings.
Me too guys. And it’s officially been an hour since I said I was getting off… I’ve literally been working on the shop update and trying to coax threadless into working for 13 hours now… but before I go I do have some quick announcements!

Giveaway Winner Announcement!
The Winner of the giveaway is Shara Pangburn!!
Thank you to everyone who entered!! Please still join the course even if you didn’t win! I used to teach art to at risk youth and art journaling is such a healing thing.
I started investing in yearly courses and art classes a few years ago.. and honestly and it was SUCH a worthwhile endeavor. My home is filled with notebooks and sketchbooks just for classes… I love to learn and I love to teach! We shouldn’t stop learning after college or high school, and online courses from artists you admire is so worth it.
Okay… I’ve officially been on the computer for too long and am feeling super stressed! Time to draw up a goddess and release some of this stress! (THANK GODDESS FOR ART!)
