Juneteenth Festival

Here are a couple of the things I sold at the festival. Most of them are under my products page.

Ella Blast

This is an 8×11 print of an actual art piece that was collage, acrylic, and stitched. This is a tribute to Ella Fitzgerald. I think of her voice being strong enough to blast into space for everyone to enjoy.

$15.00

Leaf Hat Lady Card

This is a digital sketch printed on a card. The card is 4×6. It comes with an envelope.

$5.00

I learned a lot from this event. You need to keep cash whether you want it or not. Always carry business cards. Also, set up a clear inventory sheet to keep track of sales. Get a better organizing way to display your items. Have a separate storage container for your items. A co-artist suggestion, “freeze a bottle of water the night before”, I thought that was helpful too. Then remember that everyone has their own selling style.

ChickenBoyy: The Last of Us Part II

This was streamed last night but I still find it quiet interesting. I saw some new characters and it is worth watching this game play before playing yourself. This is a continues to: The Last of Us Remastered. So I think it is important to start from the beginning.

_Chickenboyy_ has been gaming for sometime now. He has down a few live streams but I think he is trying to make a dent in the live stream realm. He has a few followers but definitely is worth your time. He is pretty good with chat. I am a fan now and will continue posting his content.

Purple Tie Die

I made a couple of pouches for my products page. I am trying to build an inventory but I haven’t really had to much time to sew. I started my crafting type business with eCommerce sites. I have also changed my hosting company several times too. I have decided that I don’t sell much of anything but I can just list stuff on this blog. So here is my first listing since I started using this blog for selling stuff.

Purple Tie Die Pencil Pouch

This is a 6 1/2 x 2 inches zipper pouch. I used a baby blue zipper and used cotton fabric for the pouch. I made a cotton zipper pull.

$5.00

So, I hope this helps with sales of my items but I am not holding my breath. Since this epidemic, I have been doing things like masks, pouches, pendants, and some art. I needed to keep my mind off my grieving and how the world has changed my life.

If you like some of this type of content, please leave a comment down below. I may put lots of random content on hear to go along with my regular content. Keep crafting!

Creativity During COVID-19

I have been making masks to sell and pouches. I have been painting and sculpting. I have been trying to keep busy and not think of all the things happening around me which could push me into a deep depression. I am hoping that I can help and inspire others to do things to keep them from insanity.

I have a website for my products that I sell. I haven’t done any marketing because that would mean that I would have to increase my productivity. Also, I am making new things to add all the time. I have a lot of old items that I will start selling. I am going to list my newest item.

I am not sure if anyone cares but I also share here some of my friends blog posts or items there are selling. I need to find more people who want to spend the time creating to ease their troubled heart. Please tell me what you think about my site, products, or how I am doing on this blog.

This is something I wrote in my therapy writing workshop:

Fall Leaves

In the fall the leaves com down and are left behind. We loose loved ones too. Some fall down and are left by the way side. I know it is hard to let the leaves fall where they may but at times we must let them go to prepare for new ones. I know that the same emotions and thought can be applied to our loved ones. Sometimes we loose people due to tragedy or they just move on but if we accept it we can open our hearts for new people that may fill the void or help with the transition. Life is full of disappointments, loss, and new experiences. We can wait for things to happen or we can do nothing and we won’t move forward.

Artists

I am trying to support my daughter and other artists of the world.

I know more but I am trying to post here to get some of their work seen.

Air BNB Travelers

I started the day with running errands and ran into a few people that was currently using the #airbnb for a place to stay. One was a South American sounding individual. He said him and his wife was paying monthly about $600 for rent. They said it was way cheaper than renting. They started with traveling with it but now they are just living here in Denver paying these prices. I think it would be cool to rent out a room or a place without a major lease.

The second person was young and decided to travel while he was young. His destination is Las Vegas but for now he his going from place to place. He started in California then used AirBnb there then traveled by bus to Phoenix, Arizona. He stayed with his grandparents but moved to an Airbnb paying weekly rates. He then traveled to Denver to try things here for a while. He lost his ID and had to revert to day labor as a form of income to pay for his place to stay for the week. Once he has acquired his identification he will then travel to Las Vegas use AirBnB again until he gets a job and permanent housing.

The third person I met was and older one on the bus traveling to her home. She said that after she retired from her job, she decided to travel around the world. She used planes, trains, buses, and AirBnb to live. She said she used her Social Security Income to do this and she wants to write a book about her travels. She said it was going to be called a face looking adventure not Facebooking because the traveling was making her look at people faces and talking to them. Not the opposite which was looking at faces on social media and posting messages.

The Change of Life

I just turned 51. I now have hypertension. I need a single purpose to take me through the end of my years. I am a creator. I like to write, do art, and sewing. I have been helping people over the years with technology, resources, and basic comprehension of things that they need to do to keep their life going smoothly. I have went through substance use conditions and behavioral health struggles. Now that I am working on internal and external healing. What should I do at this milestone?

I have been trying to de service by giving back to the homeless community and sitting on boards to help with conditions that others struggle with. I have provided my story as a testament and still want to share my continuous struggle with others to let them know that they can get better. I have 4 years of clean time in my recovery and constantly focus on my behavioral health to keep myself balanced. I have gotten trained to work as a person with lived experienced and I am not sure if this is still the direction I need to continue with.

I have been apart of two different creative venues. I am a member of a community art studio. I am following steps to improve my art adventures and can become a professional artist on this line activities. I really would like to be seen as a creative and be respected as a worthy person for people to my art. I enjoy the challenges that I have been over coming. This could be an awesome career to pursue.

When I started my recovery and abstinence of drug use, I joined a writing group for people who have hard times. This group offered a safe space and allowed me to remove all the remorse and hurt into a form of writing. Then I started writing my stories, learning new writing styles, and making friends. Ultimately, I took a few extra workshops and found that I could write pretty good. I have published some poems and stories. I have a few stories that I would like to turn into a book. I could work on a writing career.

I had bought a sewing machine and I was sewing pouches, mending clothes, and making bowl cozies. My machine broke and so I decided to purchase a new one. I got in touch with my dad and decided to go visit him. He was 88 and I wanted closure before it was to late to show I loved him. The following 6 months we talked a couple of times a week. Some days were just fixing his TV over and over again. I bought him things that he said he asked his niece for but didn’t get. I also sewed him things because I had become better at sewing. The pandemic hit and changed everything. He was sick on Monday and I got a call on Saturday from a cousin saying that he was gone. He had gotten a respiratory illness on Wednesday, Pneumonia on Friday, then he was gone, incinerated and I was hurt. I started grieve but my friends mom had died, an old friend’s dad had just died first, then, more deaths followed. I was making masks, helping people grieve and I got overwhelmed. Sewing started soothing me. I made more masks for friends and family. Mending blankets, pants, and curtains for friends. I also decided that I was going to start up-cycling. I can now do so basic clothing patterns, bag/purse patterns, and quilts. I sew for therapy mostly but I would like to sell some of my items too. I would like to have a work from home biz with my creative items.

So I am using this blog like a diary, an outlet of my hopes and dreams. I am sharing things that interest me and new stuff that I have learned. I like sharing my struggles, adventures, and my life.

PRESS RELEASE

The Guardians crank up the intensity—and volume—to turn the tides of battle

MONTRÉAL, CANADA (October 19, 2021) – Today, Eidos-Montréal revealed a brand-new, high-octane TV spot to set the stage for next week’s official launch of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy. In the trailer, viewers are dropped straight into the middle of a mid-battle Huddle, where Star-Lord, Gamora, Drax, Rocket and Groot assess the situation, discuss strategy and, of course, banter before deciding to go with Plan B — an all-out, coordinated assault appropriately fueled by Mötley Crüe’s “Kickstart My Heart.”
