Quarantine Days

Good morning everyone. Another day trying my best to stay cheerful. The sample of the Dino Nuggies pattern arrived and itโ€™s great! But itโ€™s going to be a while until I make it available for sale. Please be patient until then.

Lots of bad cramps today so just waiting those out. Catching up on work as well. Very strange to know we really cannot leave the house now, legally, except for certain reasons. But itโ€™s for everyoneโ€™s wellbeing.

Hope you are all coping well. Letโ€™s keep trying our best.

Date Night Fun And A New Friend!

Hello everyone. I hope you all had a nice day. Christopher and I had our date night yesterday, and we enjoyed playing with this I Spy book. Christopher bought it for us to play together after @maplesadventures_ reminded him of them. It was really fun!

Today, Turrรณn arrived, and sheโ€™s even more beautiful than I hoped!

I know, I know… too many bears recently… I wonโ€™t lie, Iโ€™ve done a fair amount of retail therapy, I feel like absolute garbage, I miss my friends, my mom, my sis in law, my mom in law. I miss the park, I miss the coffee shop and the stores I frequent on my walks. Iโ€™ve slowly managed to put out of my mind the canceled/postponed things like the musical, the Tampa trip, the cruise, and if Iโ€™m honest, very likely Megaplex as well, I mean, I can hope, but a part of me doesnโ€™t want to hope for anything for this year. Itโ€™s less painful that way.
โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €
Iโ€™m sure Iโ€™ll regain a sense of normalcy soon, Iโ€™m very adaptable, but all of this kinda happened right when a particularly brutal PMS began, and now Iโ€™m just waiting for my cramps to come so I can have peace again, then my mood will stabilize and my headaches will go away.
โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €
Iโ€™ve had a few bad art days (I still call them that despite finishing at least one commission a day, it just doesnโ€™t feel like enough progress). Iโ€™m the queen of โ€œIf youโ€™re a professional you donโ€™t wait for inspirationโ€ and I stand by this still. But itโ€™s been a tough couple of weeks, so if youโ€™re waiting for stuff from me, be it personal commissions, trades or commercial work, please know itโ€™s coming, just a tad slower than usual.
โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €
The good thing is, these slumps always precede massive output, at least for me, regardless of what caused them. So be prepared for that!

Anyway, something really wonderful about Turrรณn is that her ears are a little poseable! I just love her so much. I canโ€™t wait to take my new bears on outings.

Meanwhile… sad little bears (and kittens and donkeys) just want to go outside again. ๐Ÿ’” From left to right, Coffee Cake, Fish โ€˜n Chips, Franklin, and Bizcocho.

To cheer up, I ordered mini donuts from @minidonutworld! Loved them!! Perfect PMS treat ๐Ÿ‘Œ Turrรณn liked them too!

They were so, so cute!! ๐Ÿฉ๐Ÿ’•โœจ๐ŸŒˆ And I have five left for tomorrow.
