Life update and projects

It’s been a while since I’ve blogged about anything. Since then* I’ve graduated, unexpectedly lost a family member, went to a music festival, went on our annual family vacation, and have continued to work as a graphic designer for myself and others. It’s been a bit of an odd whirlwind.

During that time, I was contacted by the folks at DFTBA Records (they don’t forget to be awesome, as per usual) because I had once designed a poster for the fictional band The Hectic Glow from John Green’s The Fault In Our Stars, now a movie. Now the poster has become a shirt and is part of the official The Fault In Our Stars store. As I’m sure you can imagine, this was very exciting to me. In all of my excitement, I completely forgot to blog about it!

The greatest band you’ve never heard of—The Hectic Glow.

I have also been trying to be more crafty. Since around April I have been trying my hand at needle felting—a process of sculpting raw wool into any shape—and I’m excited to do more. One of my favorite things I’ve made is this little elephant, and I’m excited to make more!

And so I’ve begun a handmade craft store, much like Etsy but also free of cost. The store is on Storenvy, and I have felted items and Golden Snitch holiday ornaments (Harry Potter of course).

So it’s exciting times for me and I hope it continues. I’m planning on making more items, felted or not, and I hope it takes hold. The best part about it is if someone wants me to make something, they can easily let me know and I can do it. I hope soon I will have a wider variety of stock items once I know what types of felted items are popular.

Do you have any project ideas? Let me know!

*Not entirely true, since my last post was Fourth of July fireworks after graduating, but I didn’t really write anything.
