Iso Storytime 8/6 ๐ŸŒˆ๐Ÿ“š

I worked really hard today. Got a massive amount of commission progress underway! I was able to finish all my chores and artwork in time for Isolation Storytime. After having so much fun during my first event I was very excited for today’s.

Already I had my area all prepped in the afternoon! This time I got ready in the library. I think this will be my place for it going forward.

And hereโ€™s my little table for coloring with both of my fancy sharpeners and aaaall of my crayon boxes! Though not all are visible here I supposeโ€ฆ ๐Ÿค” My big pink case was still in the other room.

Bluey helped me pick my outfit for the evening! I chose one of my own designs that I created for ODU, the Dino Nuggies pattern!

It was very fitting given my dinner…

Tonight was the night I picked to open all of my Bluey toys at once! So I had those in that area as well.

I had fun opening and posing them while listening to stories.

My favorite parts were the afterparty (well, the little bit I stayed forโ€ฆ I was tired) and the reading of Danger Moose and Bunny Boyโ€ฆ and Mavisโ€™ singing โ€œImagineโ€. Iโ€™m really happy that I have this to look forward to every week. I did some more crayoning too!

I hope to finish it this weekend, so I can start another, but it’s also really important that I get all commissions to the line art stage before Monday. I want all the overdue work to be done before next weekend, and so far, I’m doing well.

I’m not sure if I’ll attend the next Iso Storytime because next Friday is the Evangelion release… but I’ll definitely attend the Friday after that!

Anyway… it’s sooo late… well past my bedtime. Goodnight, everyone…

My First Iso Storytime! ๐Ÿฃ๐Ÿ“š

Today I did something I’d been toying with for some time, but felt too shy to do. Same reason actually why I didn’t do BFC… Now, I wish that I had attended that as well. See, today I attended Isolation Storytime for the first time!

To tell you the truth I fully expected to keep my webcam and mic off for the whole thing, lurk a while, feel super uncomfortable and leave. This is because generally, being around other adult “kiddos” like myself tends to cause a cognitive dissonance in me, a strong awareness that I’m a grown ass adult doing kid things, and I go into a bad headspace.

I’ve heard this happens to others as well. But to my surprise, this ended up not being the case. For reasons I cannot explain, I turned my camera on right at the start. I ended up not feeling so shy and having so much fun. The hostess, Tibby/Mavis, was wonderful, I was blown away by how talented she was in her singing and playing! And everyone who offered their time and effort was so lovely too. I really enjoyed coloring while listening to stories. It left me feeling quite happy. I think I might even offer to read a story down the road…

It was also my first time in a Zoom group meeting. Still getting used to the mechanics of that.

During this time I tried out my new crayon sharpener that I got from Drake as a birthday present. Itโ€™s amazing! It really gets crayons back to their old sharpness:

By this I mean proper crayon shape. I just found it so cool!

Anyhow, my first IsoStorytime attendance was very sudden, I had actually decided not to attend and changed my mind ten minutes before start time… next Friday I may use my laptop at floor level instead and prep myself a play area well in advance. Maybe even order a Happy Meal if Christopher lets me. ๐Ÿ˜๐ŸŸ
