Exciting news!

Hey everyone! I'm sorry I've been so quiet lately. I had a ton of papers to write, tests and quizzes to finish, yadda yadda. I just have finals to do now and I decided a breath of fresh air was in order.

*Breathes... and smiles*

So how have you all been? ^^;

Anyway, I guess I should explain my blog post title.

A couple weeks ago, I had my very first craft sale at my school! It went really well, actually. I was only there for a couple of hours between classes. I had a lot of people come to visit me, which was kind of nice! I also made a few sales and passed out business cards. I had nothing to lose by setting up shop for those couple of hours. So... I had a lot of fun and I have to do that more often!

My little booth!

I have been slowly pecking away at commissions that people have been giving me, too. I tell you... I can't WAIT to have more time to do more. Here's a few of the things I've been doing:
A French french toast charm for a friend of mine.
A pin made out of clay and handpainted with a logo from
the Nintendo DS videogame "The World Ends With You."
I love doing commissions because they're so unique and they're often things I would never think of. I guess what I'm trying to say is... I need people to request more things from me... ;P

Also, as I had explained earlier, my perfect first cosplay took a back seat when everything kind of .. didn't work out. I still wanted to be a part of the CCEE in some way, so I decided to sign up to be a volunteer for both the CCEE and a booth for my club, Club N3rd. The awesome part is that I know a few people who have serious connections with the convention, so it took very little effort for me to get my foot in the door (one text message, actually).

SO! I'm excited about that. I'll be getting my geek on in a couple weeks. Maybe not in the way I would have liked originally... but there's always next time!

For now, that's all I wanted to update you on. I have some exams to study for (just 5). So if anything else cool pops up, I'll update you! For now... back to being busy!
