You know you're an adult when dumb shit makes you happy, like using a brand new sponge to clean dishes... Well, my honey got me a sewing machine for Christmas, and I'm pretty excited about it. I know it's not Christmas yet, but he and I are terrible at waiting until the right time to give gifts to each other. I need his face to be happy always and RIGHT NOW.
I've never used a sewing machine before and I felt like that was a form of art that I'm missing out on. It's nothing fancy, which is perfect for a beginner, but the confidence boost I got from finally sewing some stuff together that had just been sitting around! The possibility of making my own clothes is just that much closer.
Not that very many people have asked, but if you were curious as to how my mental health is going... I'm alright. Still on a steady daily medication but things don't suck as much. Maybe normal suckish, as life can be, but it's not unbearable or damning. The lack of motivation really wastes precious time I could be using to create art. I'm glad to say I'm being a little more productive lately. It could be the weather changing or the encompassing positivity of the looming holidays, but I hope to get through a bunch of projects.
New Etsy for my Slenderkat Lip Balms has been opened. Lip balm tubes have been ordered, so I'll have much more in stock soon.
