This year has definitely been a rollarcoaster and there are many reasons why i have not kept up my blog for the past 7 months. I guess the main reason would be that I had to work through some very difficult experiences in therapy and well, i’ve just been incredibly exhausted emotionally, mentally, and physically. I didn’t go to many shows, didn’t do very much art/embroidery/crafting, or much socializing. I had to work on my self-esteem. It was a long time coming, facing the trauma of my childhood, and getting past it was tough but worth it. I feel more confident in myself as a person than i ever have in my life. There are some very big changes coming up within the next few weeks but I know I can get through it with less anxiety than I would have a year ago. So, yeah, stuff! But I am looking forward to figuring out my space on the internet and being more honest with it.
Moving on, I did finish a new Simpsons embroidery piece! My favorite I think of the ones I have finished so far and it now resides with my lovely friend, Alise.
Alise and I even officiated ourselves as Stonecutters!! She got hers on her upper arm and it looks severely BADASS! I knew there was only one place I truly wanted this one, haha.
I’ve been working on other embroidery pieces on and off. Thinking of getting a vintage embroidery themed tattoo. That’ll be a big tattoo project for the future.
Well, I’m hoping to keep my blog up and possibly my etsy shop going too. I’ve been scoring some fantastic vintage finds that I wanted to share, just haven’t photographed yet. The fall will be a great time to start going back to shows again, Stars will be here in October! The last show I went to was Yellow Ostrich on June 3rd (so freaking good!!)
Until next time! Thanks so much for dropping by!!
