I finally got a chance to take a break. Sort of. I have been painting for what seems like forever, but I am not complaining! I have been working on some carnival games designs for a Halloween Bootacular Fair that is taking place this weekend! I have done a total of 3 projects and I have had so much fun painting these because they were specifically for Blacklight!
First, I had the Clown Face Mini Golf Design, then the Dead Man’s Skee Ball Design and then, at last minute I was asked to add a few more spooky details to a Haunted House Seeking Game.
When I delivered the House prop, I was able to see the Skee ball game put together in one piece and it came out amazing! I cant wait to see it at night!
When I haven’t been painting, I have been trying to squeeze in some sleep, its been hard to get solid sleep thanks to my puppy, who is just like having a newborn sometimes, waking up in the middle of the night to go outside. I have had a few other freelance jobs here and there. I finally received all my tools I ordered to do microlink extensions and I did my first client with them yesterday!
It took me a few minutes to get into the groove of applying the hair extensions, but once I got the hang of it, I was on a roll! I will be ordering more hair and will start to offer custom hair extensions. This is probably going to happen after the new year. I have ordered some fusion hair extensions so I can play around with those too. I cant wait to become so good with them, that it is second nature. If any of my clients are interested in this hair service, I will be offering this for 50% off until the new year. For inquiries, please email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
I made a few shopping trips to the craft and fabric stores and I had some really good deals! I know, I am such a geek, but I get excited about stuff like this. I have been keeping an eye out for a good desk lamp, a sturdy one that wont fall apart or something that isn’t cheaply made. I came across this lamp at Jo-Ann Fabrics, and I knew I had to jump on the sale. This lamp, by Ottlite was originally $69, and went on sale for $20! I checked Jo-Ann Fabrics website, and it is no longer even on there, but I did see one on sale on ebay. The main thing I wanted this for was also for filming my youtube videos, because I am always complaining about my lighting! hahaha
At Michaels, I scored this plaster skull that was on sale for $8. I have been wanting to get one of these so I can paint it sugar skull style! I LOVE CANDLES!!! I go through candles all the time because I always have one lit when I am awake and at home. I usually go for Hazelnut smells, but I wanted to try some new ones! These were on sale 3 for $10!
Before I make this blog post longer than it should be, I am going to go, because I have a new project I need to work on.
As always, thanks for stopping by and see you in the next post!
