So, um, yeah. I'm not dead! I've just not been very active at all here on DA. Obviously. And even though I haven't posted any new artwork, that doesn't mean I haven't been creating! There have been jewelry pieces here and there, costume and fashion sketches, there's been the occasional personal cosplay, but by and LARGE, the largest creative endeavor in my life right now is my job. I work at a costume company called Bbeauty Designs (No, that's not a typo. It's pronounced "Be Beauty". www.bbeautydesigns.com) and I don't think I could be happier! I've been there since November of '14 and spend every day making some REALLY COOL costumes! Oh my gosh, just the Sleeping Beauty gown on our front page makes me so happy to have been a part of it. My skill and speed at patterning and sewing have definitely improved, but I still have a LONG way to go! Still! This is a happy ending (or is it a beginning...?) to that "follow your dream" kinda thing.

In other news, I'm preparing to open up shop on my jewelry again. I'm afraid in the past I've sold my jewelry pieces for absurdly cheap, which looking back on it now, I realize was kind of insulting to myself and the jewelry. But not anymore! Not only am I doing this in a desperate scramble for cash (my trip to Japan last month REALLY cleaned me out and I'm gonna feel it for a while) but I also think it's about time I try to move forward with this skill. So I'm re-working my old Etsy shop. New name, fresh coat of virtual paint (my brother is helping me with a logo), respectable pictures and prices that can be taken seriously. If there is anything in my current gallery that interests you, just send me a message and we can talk about possibilities. Or, if you would like something completely custom, that's also totally an option! I'm willing to work with anyone, so long as it's within my reach of skills.

P.s. If anyone is actually interested on the full run-down of my path to working at Bbeauty (because it is not, actually, a result of my previously mentioned road trip) I could type up a little narrative of how my life has changed in the past two years.

Thanks for the fave!  And I must say, I love your username ;) .  It's great to see other Mormons here on deviantart.

You're welcome! I love seeing ways to upcycle/re-purpose clothes and items into costumes and props. This is a great reference!
Hehehe, it's funny; usually the only people that recognize my username is other Mormons! Most of the time people just don't get it.
