I Disappeared but Now I'm Back...

Journal Entry: Fri Jul 11, 2014, 10:39 PM

Well, it's true! I disappeared from posting for a while. Ever since the Phoenix Comicon, I've been very busy with working on art and my normal job. So busy I didn't have the time to sort though my photos from the Comicon and *gasp!* the Renaissance Festival and decide which ones to post.

Also, I had computer problems again! My drawing tablet's cord died. So did the power cord for my computer. And part of the plastic on my computer broke off so now there's a hole above the computer screen where the plastic should go. My poor computer is limping along and still works, but it's time to get a new one. I joke that I should name it Jackie after Jack Harkness because it won't die. (My computer is a girl) It's 7 years old and it won't die!

Anyway, I think I've posted all the photos from the Phoenix Comicon I want to post here on DA. You can see the rest on my Flickr. I'm still trying to get used to using Flickr, but I do admit it's nice to dump all the photos I love but don't want to post here on DA, Tumblr, or my website in a place where people who follow me online can see them. In case you're wondering, you can also see photos from this past year's Renaissance Festival. I have plans to add previous year's photos to Flickr, but those plans were permanently put on hold due to even more computer problems.

In other news, I'm working on several new sewing projects that I hope to get done by the end of the year. Most are complex dream cosplay projects I wanted to work on when I reached a certain level of sewing expertise. Now that I've reached that level (Or so I've been told) I'm making them. I have no plans to go to conventions until next year so I'm using the money I wanted to spend at this year's conventions for these projects. I hope to finish them all by the end of the year and wear them for the first time at different conventions. If I get them done before the end of the year, I'll probably post photos of the costumes on my dress form in a "Here's what I made!" post. I'm also teaching someone to use my camera so I could maybe get some photos of me wearing them. No clue if they'll end up online though. I want the photos for prosperity sake only. If I like them enough I'll post them. (I feel like a ghost when it comes to posting photos of me wearing the costumes I make! Everyone see what I made but not me!)

Well, I think I covered everything. If I remember something I didn't add here, I'll make another journal and talk about it there. :D
