I am going to have a productive week. I am not going to spend money on things that I cannot justify. Instead, I am going to stay home and bake skull cakes for Halloween, and do my laundry, and clean my house. I am going to buy candy for trick-or-treaters before it all sells out. I am going to iron both of my cloaks. I am going to act like an adult.
Furthermore, I am going to be productive until the end of the year. I am down to two listings on Etsy, which is terrible – because it’s hard to sell things if you don’t have anything listed. Therefore I am going to list a bunch of small wallets again, which i figure will take me maybe 1-2 days to pull together, so that at least the shop won’t be empty. I have too many custom projects right now to be listing big items, but after Christmas I’ll start doing that again.
These things are utterly realistic and I can totally do them.
Since I have this entry started, I might as well mention what my Halloween costume is going to be. I know, I don’t usually dress up, but THIS year. So I made that green cloak for wearing to the ren fest earlier this year, right? I wanted to think of some way to dress that up a little so it seemed more like a costume and less like an outdated piece of clothing. So I decided to make something of a woodland crown with matching cuffs for my wrists, and I am going to be a dryad (a wood nymph!). (I trust no one will notice that my crown doesn’t have any oak leaves or acorns on it….) I also made a little crown that I’m hoping Stephen will wear at least long enough for me to take a picture.
Note: I am not wearing the wig for Halloween. I ended up liking the way it all looks with my natural hair better than the blonde stuff. So….
