yes, i am still alive. & no, i haven’t forgotten you. from now on i will post regularly again (: somewhere last week i found such an amazing way around being too busy for everything i want to do. & that is this: decide to stop being busy. it really is that simple.
& some other news: i am finally getting my little business registered this week! i was looking into it last week & was already going to do it then, but apparently you have to go by their office personally for one-(wo)man businesses. i have SO many ideas & money for supplies too, i can’t wait to rejuvenate my shop again! & keep updating. & i suppose i’ll have to get into that annoying promotion thing again.
for those of you who want to help spread the word about my clothing:
oh, & to everyone interested in buying my stuff: when i am registered the prices will go up, since i’ll have to pay taxes & everything. i also read this interesting article on pricing handmade goods & was horrified at how much i’ve been underpaying myself. you know i’d love to keep the prices low for you, but going bankrupt is not something i’m aiming for. so, if you want something already listed, i recommend that you buy it now.
EDIT: it is done (: i feel so awesome & professional.
& another new tidbit of news: i got accepted for the study fashion design at artemis styling academie! even though i signed up for allround styling! now i’m another step closer to world domination.
& while i’m way behind my writing goals, i have FINISHED a short story last night. i haven’t finished a story in so looooong. this one is also the longest i’ve ever finished. i must say, i’m pretty proud of myself (: i’m not done editing it yet, but i hope to post it this week. any volunteers for proof-reading & thorough criticizing? i would really like someone else’s opinion before i send it out into the world. if you’re interested, just e-mail me at maraleopard [at] gmail [dot] com & i’ll send it to you. oh, & it’s not something for the easily offended.
& i changed my hair again. i shaved it all off. i kid you not. i look like a boy! but its nowhere near as hideous as i had expected it to be. i keep amazing myself with all the things i can pull off. i’ll post pictures later this week!
