I don't know what's up right now. Things are...trivial. Not really, that's what I use as an excuse for when I finally talk to someone after not wanting to talk to them for ages. There are quite a few stress factors going on right now in the my world that ARE legitimate excuses for not wanting to do, well, anything.
1. The Shuttles
I feel defeated! In my striving for perfection, I've acquired a complex. Plus, there were 5 or 6 people that I promised a shuttle. They WILL be finished (how many times have I said that?), I just don't know when. The process has been refined and everything, but after committing myself for so many hours in such a little time frame, I'm burnt out. To those people, I didn't flake out! I swear!
2. Comments and Followers
Am I supposed to respond to comments? EH?! What is blog etiquette? The comments that I get are appreciated soooo much. After I post, I usually check my email pretty often for a couple days. It feels rude of me to not respond, but I don't know....
How in the world have so many blogs gotten well over 100 followers? I had 34 forever, and then, finally one more person followed me and I'm at an even 35. Whenever I find a new tatting blog, I follow it, which has made the Motif Challenge particularly enjoyable because of the people featured, but, I find that I am following almost everyone featured! There must be some brick wall that I need to get over.
There were going to be more things on this list, but I'll spare you. Don't get me wrong, I'm completely positive about everything (yeah right). Let's just consider it "End of High School" panic.
There have been some cool non-tatting things going on. I've been working on some tutorials for an internet collaboration aimed at girls that are maybe 11 to 15. They're mostly re-purposing right now. Young girls love to ruin their clothes, so I figure those kinds of tutorials would be appreciated. Here are some pictures (The videos aren't up yet). Excuse the green screen, I decided to take pictures for this after the sun went down and had to use the studio lights.
That's a quilt-type pillow made out of the legs of some jeans, so that out-dated jeans can be turned into shorts and hardly ever scraps are left over. Very eco... ha
This is a more whimsical pillow to match the more fashionable quilted one. It's just a sealed up pair of shorts that were way too short and I wouldn't want anyone else wearing (Their momma wouldn't either!).
I just cut the waist band off of a TERRIBLE pair of jeans and it looks pretty cute. I thought it matched the lumberjack shirt that my grandma insists looks fabulous on me. It's kind of a no-brainer thing, but the idea is there.
I don't know about this one. I was going for something really couture, looks more stupid-ture. Maybe it'll grow on me.
Lastly, to make up for my negativity and absence. Here is a song that I wrote. It's just put to some random pictures, because I couldn't think of anything better. (:
Thank you so much for being awesome! (:
