New Hair, New Art!

I saw my amazing hairdresser, Shimona Henry at East Vanity Parlour once again. She gave me this wickedly cool shag with an incredible undercut. I love having something new that really reflects my personality! I can always trust her for good conversation and taking my feedback in to play when she creates such epic styles and cuts.

Arts alive is in SIXTEEN DAYS and I am trying to work away at having enough art to sell. Yikes. I think if I show up with ANYTHING then that’s definitely better then nothing, right?

I just completed this piece of art last night. I absolutely am feeling this “house” vibe lately. I used to draw more animals but it just hasn’t happened lately!

How’s your summer going? I have taste tests and other videos to create soon. I’m working on it – i swear, i’m still here!

What a turn of events! (not really)

I honestly apologize for my lack of updates. I have been feeling absolutely horrible lately! I had the worst cold I have EVER experienced and now I have another ailment that i’m awaiting a diagnosis on so I can treat it. My energy has been entirely lacking and  i’ve become more lazy. I have had a list of things to get done – INCLUDING BLOG REVIEWS but i’d be awfully drab in videos! Don’t you think that someone who lacks energy and enthusiasm would be a bore to watch? I do!

I went to Lake Tahoe and had a good time. We gambled on penny slots and stayed in our air conditioned hotel room. I don’t fare well with the heat as much as I would like to.

I have Teva shoes to review, a steamer, chewigem and more things to work on. I sincerely apologize for the delay, I really, really do!

Now it’s time to take a nap….!

Squishmallow Review!

 

I think squishmallows are incredibly sensory friendly and a great tool for anyone who is autistic! They are squishy, great to hug and very soft.

Thank you Kellytoy for sending me these to test out and keep ❤

Lighting woes.

I was so excited for my job, picking up where I left off and continuing to share my passion of all things art with customers. It’s a complete joy for me. My previous location with this same company, the lighting was excellent: round bulbs mostly of the halogen variety lining the aisles. This time, i’m exposed to fluorescent lighting in a wiry cage. I so badly want to be able to carry out the tasks required of me but it’s incredibly difficult when I am exposed to something so sickening, both mentally and physically. I am trying so hard to pull through but I just don’t know what to do. The depression and the anxiety set in real deep and I am beginning to feel like there’s nothing I can do anymore.

I’m tired. I’m full of anguish. I feel defeated and unreliable.

 

New JOB!

Today I embark on a new (actually, continuation) of a journey I was once on. I was with an amazing company for 3 years. I helped set the store up and, sadly, I helped shut it down too.

Now that i’ve relocated to Vancouver, there’s another location. I was lucky enough to get hired and today is my very first day. I’m so happy to be able to utilize my art supply knowledge once again. I’m a bit rusty so i’ll definitely need to refresh and revive my memory. It’s incredibly nice to be able to ramble about different products and connect with customers on a creative level. It also helps to inspire me and keep my creative flow going. I also love the fact i’m going to meet new, local, likeminded people.

I’m finally focusing more on myself. I have to help my Mom clean out a car soon. I need to go to costco and return bottles. Life goes on. I still need to work more on my Retrophiliac & Co. bags…but all in due time, right?

Evolving, slowly.

I’ve been working on new patterns while we wait for our fabric tags for retrophiliac and co.

I am very anxious and I have been really internalizing my stress. I’m trying not to, but my appetite is gone and my sleep patterns are all screwed up. I’m napping a lot and I haven’t gone outside as much as I should.

I’m going through a dramatic change. I have a job interview next week and I am crossing my fingers that I get it. It’s something i’ve done before and loved immensely. It’s also walking distance from where I am staying and right down the street from where my sister works.

Making friends or having a social life and getting involved in things that this city has to offer is something I would like to do a lot more of. I feel incredibly lucky to be back here, surrounded by family. I never felt like I spent enough time with them.

Please bear with me. I am growing as a person!

Big Changes in my life.

I have been hyper focused on creating my “Retrophiliac & Co.” Product line with my Mum. I also quit my job and moved to Vancouver. I’m currently sleeping on a couch and living between my Mum’s & my older Sister’s place. I do have to say, i’m happier.

 

This is more information on what we’re working on, I would love for you to share & if you’d like, pre-order.

Retrophiliac & Co. Preorder!

 

Thank you! Would love to hear from you.

Introducing: Retrophiliac & Co.

My Mother and I have always talked about working on a project together and we never got around to it. Finally, my vision is taking shape and it’s turning in to reality.

Introducing:

Retrophiliac & Co.

https://www.facebook.com/retrophiliacandco/

I create the one of a kind fabric. My Mom takes care of the the technical aspects: making patterns and sewing. We come up with the designs of each accessory together and turn it in to something really amazing.
