Well I haven't been doing a very good job at this whole blogging thing.
It's honestly laziness. I have no excuses.
But moving on!
Let's see. Not much is going on, just working and making new stamps.
Yesterday I was trying to find "inspiration" for a new linocut. I think I have something? I'm just not sure about it yet. That's why I have the pie chart above. It is completely accurate.
But I have created new tea towels! I just uploaded them up on to my Etsy.
I like how they turned out. I'll probably print them in color soon, most likely green. My Etsy site is slowly growing tea towels I'm proud to sell! I just need to sell more...to make a living.
But I was contacted by blogger, SheLikesLace, to do some sort of collaboration. I was little hesitant because the internet is full of sketchy people, but she got me to believe she was legit, so I shipped a couple tea towels her way and she's going to be taking photos of my tea towels with her food.
I don't know if anything will come from it, but I guess it's some exposure, better than none.
But I didn't even think of that kind of stuff before she contacted me. Collaborating with bloggers is actually kind of genius. They have followers that are influenced by them, so if find more bloggers that what to promote my towels, maybe more people will want to by my towels?!
But that is about it. I found a few vegetable bowls that were pretty good.
The links are attached to the photo. The first one was super easy to make and delicious. It fills you up and it's vegan. The second one is also vegan, it has "vegan" bacon bits. You use shredded coconut and saute it with a bunch of spices and liquid smoke and it worked really well with the bowl.
Trying to eat less meat for health and ethical reasons. I've fallen into these vegan youtube channels and they do a really good job of making you feel bad. haha. But I'm also discovering really great vegan recipes. I love cheese and bread though. One side of me is thinking, this is your health, you don't need, meat, milk and dairy. You'll feel great and superior to everyone you know. (kidding, kinda) and then the other half of me is thinking I have this one life and there's so many wonderfully sinful foods out there, like pie. Oh pie.
I'll be honest though, when I was typing that sentence I was trying to think of food I couldn't give up, my first thought was ice cream, but then I thought I COULD give up ice cream. I'm pretty sure vegan ice cream is nasty though. And then I thought of a burger and I again I felt I could probably give that up too. So we'll see, I might always be in between the whole thing which probably really pisses off vegans. It's all about will power man, and I really suck at that. I'm always good for a couple days but then I get stressed or upset about something and food is unfortunately a comfort for me. Why couldn't it be exercise?!? haha.
