Talking Shop

*Climbs up* I guess I fell off the face of the internet again. @_@ 

And I hate to use the second* most overused excuse - I was busy.  But it's true :P  We re-orgged at work, giving me a whole new set of things to learn and be responsible for. I like the challenge, but it's a bit stressful!

Also, I was ordained as a deacon at church.  Deacons, in general, help care for the congregation, be it physical or spiritual/prayer needs.  It's an absolute honor, but as the youngest deacon - I'm very inexperienced and unequipped. I just have to have faith that God will provide whatever I am lacking! :P

And lastly, I'm prepping for my very first sales experience! It makes me nervous just thinking about it - Friend E and I have a table in Fanime's Artist Alley this year.  I made some fun "business" cards for the experience (please excuse the phone pics):

We'll be selling bags, buttons, bookmarks and greeting cards.  So if you're going to Fanime this year (Memorial Day weekend), please, please stop by and say hi! Prices will be cheap 'cause who doesn't love cheap?! Haha.

Aren't the fabrics cute? I got most of them in Hawaii  : ) 

Artist Alley is in the South Hall this year, which is the big blue tent behind the main convention center.  I don't know where our table will be exactly, but we'll be there!

I still have some bags to finish, and a slew of buttons to punch out. Our loose theme for buttons is "old anime men" (like Gendo, Master Roshi, Uncle Iroh, etc.) since I believe that's an untapped market (perhaps for good reason, lol). If you have any ideas for those I'd love to hear 'em!

Anyway, please bear with me for a couple more weeks as Fanime comes and goes.  Then hopefully I can come back full force >.>"  But we're also going to SD Comic-Con this year too, so who knows! :P

*The first excuse, at least among bloggers of my age, would be to announce a pregnancy - which I am not doing, but Happy Mother's Day to all you mommies out there! :3


  1. Cute inventory - good luck with the sales, have fun!

    Congrats on becoming a deacon - I think you're going to be great at it!

  2. love the business cards! the bags and greeting cards are so cute. good luck at artist alley!

  3. I had to reread the pregnancy statement a few times to make sure I read it right! HAHA! :) WOW a deacon!!! That's like... so serious! :) That's awesome, especially since I think I only know older, male deacons...

    WOW! Those are so cute! Is there entrance fee to fanime? Cause I'd go to just visit you... Love the pouchies and cards! Maybe I can make a side order?!?

  4. Congrats on being a deacon! So exciting! I also only knew male deacons...who were old and wrinkly. But very nice people.
    Glad you see you back around!

  5. @alvina & @diana - yes, I am definitely a baby deacon! I feel like I should have a deacon-in-training name instead, but Im learning!

    And alvina, just lemme know whatcha want, ill probably take better pictures of things if I can find my missing camera =_=

  6. Omg, I wish I lived in the Bay!! I would totally have gone to Fanime just to buy your bags!!! ADORABLE prints!! And congratulations on becoming a deacon!! What an honor!


Your thoughts - go!
