I just need to get real for a minute, please resist the urge to skip this.
My anxiety is at a high again, after two years of very successful remission. As most if you know I’m working retail and this is possible the worst job situation for someone with anxiety. It’s really bad right now.
I think I need to quit my job. I can’t pay my bills as it is but I know I can’t get better if I don’t take the time to heal. I’m going on a much needed vacation next weekend with my favorite people which will be helpful but I need a plan for when I get back to the real world.
I’m gonna be opening up illustrations. I am offering them on my IndieGoGo campaign so I had temporarily suspended illustrations outside if that in the meantime.
Money is gonna get really scary when I leave my job. I am really gonna need some jobs.
If you could just let me know if you’re interested in a new avatar or portrait for a friend or of a pet or something, that would be super cool. I don’t know what the rate will be at this moment, I usually sell them for $50+ on my Etsy but I know that’s steep for a lot of people, especially right now.
So please message me if you are interested, reblog if you know someone else that might be interested or if you just want to be an amazing person and signal boost. I will probably deal with everyone on a one on one basis through email or tumblr rather than etsy, at least for now.
Thank you for your love and support. ❤️
Please, if you can, donate and help me open the shop of my dreams!
More info at the link.
My Etsy is still open temporarily until I relaunch after my campaign has ended, however custom drawings are now available only as perks.
Thank you all for your support, it means literally everything to me.
A heads up to you, my friends: I will be removing the items from my Etsy on Monday, June 16th. Please make any purchases you planned on making before that date.
The reason I am taking my items down is because on Monday I will be officially launching my IndieGoGo campaign! Once launched, you will be able to help fund a bigger and better Old Familiar Way and make a longtime dream of mine come true! The perks for my campaign are similar to what I offer in my shop currently but taken to the stratosphere! Prices will be slightly higher on the IndieGoGo campaign because as you can understand the donation prices don’t include shipping and processing fees. Plus it’s a fundraiser! Not only will perks include custom illustrations and prints but also sticker packs, handmade wearables and vintage goodies!
Please check back on Monday for a link where you can read about my journey thus far and where I plan to take Old Familiar Way in the future.
And please head over to my etsy shop and make some purchases if you feel so inclined! http://etsy.com/shop/oldfamiliarway
I want to thank you all for the immense amounts of support you have shown me over the years. I have intense goals, I hope you will all explore them with me. I have more appreciation for you all than I can express in words, love you ALL. <3333
Hey darlings! I’m having some financial hardships at the moment, so I’ve reinstated my etsy!
Right now I’m offering my back catalogue of prints for $5 each or if you order three I will throw in a fourth free!
I am also offering custom illustrations, bundle includes a digital hi res copy and a signed 8 x 11 framed print!
I didn’t even know they were there. 😳
You are all so sweet, luv u’s.
Haha, I don’t think it’s even that funny anymore so I understand. Glad you still like it though! :)
