So many people have been supporting me through my Retrophiliac etsy shop.
I have been so hyper focused on creating new pieces of art, I haven’t had that much time to write (it’s super hard trying to juggle art and writing, seriously. How can I do this? I’d need more hands) but wow. The volume of art I am putting out has been insane!
A lot of people wanted Christmas Cards from me so i’m attempting to crowdfund/kickstart.
This is almost like a pre-order since that’s what I will be selling the sets for — but the Picatso card is a bonus.
I’m reading “Don’t sweat the small stuff” and it explains how we should see the best in people and if they are not being positive it’s because they are dealing with something in their own life. I work with people most days and have lots of retail experience. I see people’s projecting all kinds of different moods and I remind myself that there are life experiences behind that.
I’m pretty content in my own life. Of course, I worry about finances and I don’t have anyone (but myself) to fall back on so I pinch pennies almost obsessively.
There is someone I worry about and wish I could do more for: My Family.
Specifically, My Mother, who has provided me with so much knowledge, empowerment and life.
I just found out she’s going to be evicted from the trailer she’s been living in, which belonged to her husband’s family. My Mom lost her husband last year to Cancer. She relies on food gift cards (which have been disappearing, probably stolen, before ever arriving in her mailbox) from a family service agency and can not work due to a degenerative spine disease.
I feel so powerless.
Do I crowdfund?
Do I start some kind of fundraiser?
Do I sell some art?
I wish I could win the lottery. I just want to make it all better.
