This is your official reminder for the grand (re)opening of my online shop on Shawnee Rising Studios!
Coming in February, 2021!
You can expect to see some original paintings and handcrafted pieces drop right away on opening day! Things will be slow at first, as I’m still in the process of creating and handcrafting new pieces. New items will immediately drop as I finish and prepare them for the Online Studio.
Just wanted to give and update on my podcasts and new items that will be coming out at the beginning of the year, 2021.
I know I keep saying that my online shop will be opening soon and that new items will be popping up, but with everything going on with the pandemic and the sporadic shipping delays people are having, I’m waiting until January to see how things look. There’s a lot going on, especially with shipping companies, I would hate for a piece of artwork to go missing or get damaged.
So, in the meantime I’m painting and getting other pieces of work made to fill the shop up to be ready for opening day, hopefully in January or February. A big NIYAWE, thank you, to everyone helping out and supporting me by buying some pieces already. It means and helps a lot! It really does.
I feel like I keep saying all of this over and over, but this year has been crazy. I’m just ready for things to get back to normal and to get my online shop opened up.
I love podcasting and I hope I can continue doing it. For now, I can’t find the time to do it. I don’t have the space or the alone time to get a recording made. I thought I would at least get a season in before taking a break, not four episodes. But, I hope I can get it started back up again soon.
My main problem is content. I really don’t know what to talk about, but I keep forgetting that I made the podcast just to rant and get things off of my mind. I’m trying too hard to make it “artsy”, when that’s what I want to do with this blog. The blog is for art and the podcast is for ranting about other things.
So, if episode 5 ever comes out and it sounds a little different, that’s why. There are things I want to talk about that I have a hard time talking about with other people, and I hope with podcasting it will help make it a little easier to say.
So, that wraps up this post. Time to get creating…
I have never been good at keeping new years resolutions. For as long as I can remember making them, I’ve never followed through with one. Too many things happen in a year that change my plans and I end up going in a different direction or I just don’t do it.
But, as the holidays come to a close and a new year is just around the corner, I find myself thinking about the things I hope to accomplish in the year 2020. So, do I make resolutions?
Happy Holidays! I hope everyone is having a joyous holiday season! I just wanted to give an update on what’s going on in the world of Shawnee Rising Studios.
We finally got moved and are still getting things situated, but it’s good to be out of the small home we were in.
As an early Christmas present, I was able to get a pretty decent laptop to begin updating my blog and start working on my artwork again as a lot of my artwork is digital, and I’m ready to begin working on my books again. I hope to be writing in the blog a little more from now on as well.
The only downfall right now is internet service. Many internet providers don’t support where we live, but right now my mobile hot spot does the trick.
Fortunately, there’s plenty of room in the new house that I can set up a work area to begin working on my jewelry again. I can’t wait to finally be able to open up my online shop. But I’ve some work to do still.
Hopefully, nature doesn’t strike me down this time.
It was a small update, but I hope to have more in the next few months as we settle down and get things moving again.
I haven’t had the money to fix my computer or buy a new one. We’re in the process of getting things ready to move out of our current home in the near future and I’ve put all of my craft work on hold. To be honest, I don’t know when I will be able to begin making things again. Things have been rough the last few weeks and we’re doing what we can to stay afloat.
I can’t wait to until things are back to normal.
Anyways, I probably won’t be posting as much until I can begin focusing on the blog again, which I hope is very soon. I’m sure I will post here and there but they will be small posts as they will be from my phone.
As October closes in and things keep falling apart, I’m struggling to find a way to continue with my plan to open my online shop.
I got the power supply needed to fix my computer but another issue has reared its ugly head; a few capacitors on the motherboard seem to have blown, which leaves me with a few options: fix it myself, take it to someone, or just buy a new one.
Either way I don’t have the money for it and, sadly, I don’t think I will have it going by October.
In the meantime, I’m continuing my beading and jewelry making on the side until I can get my computer up and running. However, I’m going to wait until closer to October to decide if I want to change the date. I want to hold off as long as I can in case I get things working again. I’m hoping to at least have things running before the end of the year.
The universe is putting a lot of pressure on my family right now, and though I don’t understand why, I’m going to try as hard as I can to keep my head up. I know that we will overcome it.
But dang, universe…!
As always, thanks for checking out the blog and I hope things will get straightened out and I can stop whining about it. I just needed to vent a little and writing makes me feel better.
