Lots of things happening!

I wanted to start this off with some really good news.

My Kickstarter has met AND exceeded it’s goal! I’m so pleased and so grateful!

I’ve been approved to work on a local, digital collaboration project and I will be speaking later this month about my artwork and being autistic. So many things are happening for me all at once and it’s absolutely insane. I can’t even begin to express how totally thankful I am.

I’ve also made a lot of new friends on facebook and my etsy is seeing wonderful amounts of traffic. The feedback about my artwork is so positive. I am happy that I get to share my story of success and what Autistic people are capable of.

It’s really awesome that I will be able to have Christmas cards in 4 different designs to share with people. The fact people want them as much as they do is something I would have never imagined in my wildest dreams!

On another side of the coin, i’m dealing with some pretty severe stress and anguish because I have someone who has made it a point of posting completely untruthful things about me on Reddit. I’m not sure how to handle this. I’ve shared my side of the story and I would hope people would read it and come to their own conclusions. It’s really too bad because this person has insinuated that I don’t do research when it comes to getting my art on different items and also questioned my Autism diagnosis. They purposely misgendered me as well and took multiple different subjects I spoke about in a live stream to craft a gigantic LIE about me. This person is a fellow Autistic Artist too. I had to actually ban them from my Made by Autistics group for coming after me.

I’m really doing my very best trying to mentally compartmentalize all of the things I have coming up and what I need to prioritize but it’s incredibly hard and dealing with such unnecessary drama takes a toll on my executive functioning.

Ah, C’est la vie.

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.

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.

Shop With Me at Talize Delta!

 

I love thrifting! I was so happy to collaborate with Talize on this fun video. They have two locations close to me, Delta & Langley. I love their immaculately kept store, the selection and the staff! I am so happy that they help the Children’s Wish Foundation and are a Canadian Company. I got a few items including a Levi’s Denim Jacket that i’m so in love with.
