Hello friends! I hope this finds you well. I have been incommunicado for a while because I just spent four days in New Jersey attending a Supernatural (the television show) convention in Secaucus. Leading up to the convention, I was really trying to keep things moving and get orders and some other projects finished so I could enjoy my time. I was attending this convention for fun, and not as part of Lil’ Luvvies (weird, I know).
While I enjoyed being away and spending time with my dear friends, now that I am back home, I find myself in a bit of a frenzy. You see, in about 30 days, Lil’ Luvvies is hitting the road and we are heading to Rhode Island for our first ever Rhode Island Comic Con (RICC). I know this is one of the largest conventions on the east coast, so I am nervous about that. About a month after I return from RICC, I am turning around and participating in my second Steel City Con. Though I am so excited about the possibilities these two conventions can open up for Lil’ Luvvies, I am terrified I won’t have enough stock, I won’t break even, and that I am taking on too much too quickly.
So, while my few days away was nice and relaxing, being back has had me a bundle of nerves, especially now that I am back at my primary job, too. And once I start thinking about all that is to come, I really start to work myself into a frenzy because whether we are ready or not, Christmas is right around the corner. As this is my first Christmas with the shop/Web site, I am not sure what to expect. I might not have any increase in business, or I might be overwhelmed.
With all this said, there could be changes to the blog: Depending upon how I’m feeling, there could be an increase or a significant decrease in posts. If I am just overwhelmed and need to vent – there could be an increase in posts. If I am overwhelmed and there is no spare moment to do anything but crochet – there could be a marked decrease in posts, at least on the Web site. I am sure you will still be able to find pictures and captions on my Instagram account, which I try to post at least one time per day on – unless I’m on a true vacation.
Fingers crossed that everything goes well. Thank you all for your patience in dealing with me, I appreciate it so much.
Hugs and cuddles,
