Haven't really done much on lj for awhile except for the Valentine post. I thought more people would be into the voice meme, though. But like so many other things, usually the stuff I'm way excited about others think is just "ho hum."

So I did the FWA  convention two weeks ago. I made enough the cover the costs of the con, but not much beyond that. I really need to find a way to take credit cards. I do know about square and its awesomeness, but I don't have a smart phone or ipad and have no intention of getting either. Too expensive.

Speaking of phones, I think mine is not receiving text messages. I don't think many of you use that mode of communication, but if you do, be aware that I may not get. Calling is better.

I only have three weeks before ACEN to get everything done. Why, why have I never learned my lesson about doing stuff in advance?

I'm on the look out for more hula ronin. My usual conspirators have a distinct lack of time, so if anyone is interested in doing/ learning hula over skype, let me know!! And I have a super flexible schedule, so don't let that hold you up. ^_~ I taught myself a new song yesterday. I'm proud of myself for not having to write it all out before learning it, and it only took my two hours to really get it down. Yay~! ^_^

So this is what I've been up to since May. Most of it I've done in the last few months. I have a few more things I want to make before MWFF.
It's almost here!

While trying to get everything else organized, I took a minute to diverge from to do list and actually watch a movie I hadn't seen: the "new" Alice in Wonderland with Johnny Depp.
....... I really think some fashion designer created an avant garde collection and then made the movie exclusively to showcase the clothing. It was really bad, terrible CG, and I wasn't impressed with the acting either. They were trying to be edgy, but they weren't taking it far enough. Overall poor construction.

I'm finally getting back on track from ACEN. For those of you who missed the beginning, akarui_sekai , tokoz, and I had a booth at ACEN's artist alley. Sekai sold her adorable cosplay outfits for build a bears, Tokoz had her stylish foam wings (which I guess you can't see unless you are logged into deviant art), and I of course sold my felted plushies. We declared it an overall success and have decided to do it again next year! 
The whirl wind visiting was cool. Now that I'm out of state, if I go to IL at all, I want to be able to see as many of the flat-landers as possible. I'm glad I got to see you people, period, even if it was short.
Thanks everyone for your hospitality!!
So now all that's left is getting my event taxes in the mail and getting the last of my junk put away. I've already got new ideas for plushies I want to make. Miyazaki critters are definitely on the list. I'm also going to try making key chains and headband mounted ears.
I'll keep you posted.

I thought I'd take a look and see what other people were needle felting. I now feel like I'm not going to sell a thing!
This person
makes it look like I merely dabble in needle felting.
This is the only one that doesn't make me worry.
This person
does awesome, cute, little critters. I need to learn how to do little.
And this last one is a smack in the face that let's me know when I get that good, I can charge those prices. I was kind of worried about my prices for ACEN, but after seeing that, I think I'll get by.

Here's hoping none of these people show up at ACEN as vendors!

Make more things out of wool!

So I was thinking that I probably ought to make some more wool critters. I keep feeling like I don't have enough for 3 days of con. So looking at my inventory, I think it's best to make some smaller, more affordable things. The pipe fox was created! Only its first head was ridiculously proportioned to the rest of its body. Okay, we can fix this. Chop off first head. Build new one that is decidedly better fitting. (Finished pipe fox)

After the head-ectomy, I was left with something very like a finger puppet. Kind of creepy. While a fox head finger puppet might appeal to some, it kind of freaked me out, so it got a body. Hence, the Three Tailed Kitsune was born!

I'm looking at these two things, thinking I still don't have enough. I really should make some more smaller things. I did all that Pokemon research. I really should just do some of them. So what do I go and make? A 23 inch long Appa. Haha! That's really small and affordable. Only not.
