but i want to print more of these haha

If you’re wondering why I used glitter, my logic is that nothing bad in my life has ever come from using gold glitter, so why not? 

Today I’ve got probably the easiest, most beginner friendly jar I’ve ever posted. I need good luck, you probably need some good luck, this is what we’re making today. Usually I have jars that have different herbs ans such for different elements of the jar for the jar’s purpose. Not today. Today it is literally one jar full of herbs and spices that all have one purpose in mind – luck.

So, because of that, you can use any of the herbs listed, as many or as few as you want to or have on hand. In italics are the ones I’ve used in mine.

  • lilac
  • acorn
  • bay leaf
  • clover
  • allspice
  • poppy seeds
  • tonka bean
  • aloe
  • caraway seeds
  • catnip
  • parsley
  • chamomile
  • dill
  • star anise

While there are others, I have only listed a few that I feel like people have on hand.

The put together of this jar in simple. Light your candle, focus on your intention, and layer in your herbs. Feel free to additionally use anything that is lucky to you. Perhaps when sealing the jar, if you have a lucky coin you could press it into the wax to leave the print of it, use sigils, etc. Anything to make this more personal, the better. For me, I decided to use gold glitter just because I wanted to. Glitter is something I always want to use in my draft but I never do, so I decided to today because like I said, nothing bad has ever come to me when glitter was involved, haha!

If you have trouble sealing your jar, I have a tutorial for that here.

In addition to that, you can find all my other jars and original posts here, or here is just a masterpost of them (so far).

If you have any questions feel free to drop by my ask box! And as always, if you make any of my jars, I would love to see them, so feel free to tag me!

If I bought one of your BP shirts for the sake of burning it, would you be mad? My shit cheating ex loves this show, and so did I.

Well… I mean I can’t stop you, but it might be cool if when they go up (we’re working on putting up a shopify of all the remaining overorder from the KS) you left it for someone who actually wants it, haha. They’re extremely rare since we’re not able to make more, and I know a lot of fans in want of one. Why not instead print and burn this effigy created specially for your anti-ex burning needs:

(Also teens please don’t get into the habit of burning things when you’re upset I’m the daughter of a fire fighter and am obligated to say that)

Hi, I just wanted to let you know I'm excited to hear you'll be selling merchandise, as your comic is probably my favourite on the web and it would be great to have a way to support you. (Plus I obviously want a t-shirt with Ferragus having a tea party with the bunnies.) I also wanted to ask if you'll be doing a book at all? Thank you for all the great comics!

Hi, thanks for the support and yep, I’m chuffed you like the comics! I forgot about the bunny tea-party - haha I will have to revisit that idea with more woodland gatherings. As to a book, I think when I get to about 200 strips I’ll do a book. (Right now I’m at about 130). I always loved those big bumper Peanuts books as a kid (did they only come out in Australia, maybe, who knows?) where I could just read them all day. That’s what I want to capture in print. To give folks value for money :)

Ygritte, Cersei and Daenerys by Oneforni.

I wanted to make a huge series and call it Game of Thrones Ladies, but when finishing the third piece I realized I don’t feel like carrying on with these. So yeah, it’s more like The Three Awesome Ladies of Game of Thrones , haha!

P.S. These are also available as prints at Society6!

Random Haul (#1)

So I (sort of) shopped the other day…

1. Pop socket (Moon). I actually like this better than key rings. They’re much more convenient for me—and cuter! I got this moon one from a classmate for P100.

2. Shoelace earphones. I had to shop for stuff to replace the ones that I’d broken (for an annoyingly ton of times already) and this was the cheapest and the cutest (no it’s not obvi that I like cute things) pair of earphones I could find. I got this for only P139!

3. Style My Brow pencils. I’m not a makeup person. My friends know it. My family knows it. My boyf—ah ha ha ha well. Everyone who knows me well knows that I’m a lazy bum especially when it comes to putting on a little shade here and a little glimmer there on my face. But after borrowing my mom’s eyebrow pencil and practicing over my hairless brows, I magically felt satisfied with the outcome thus making me want to buy my own. And I got both my pencils for P150 only at The Face Shop (#03 dark brown). Y'all know how sales. Are. Just. The. Best. Thing. Especially when you don’t even know there’s a sale going on in the first place haha!

Ugh I've always wanted to start a bullet journal but my handwriting is so ugly

But you don’t have to have the “perfect” handwriting to start a bullet journal!! I’m sure your handwriting is okay, it just may look a bit less legible than the ones you see here in the community, but that’s because the people here trained their hands to have that perfect, print-like handwriting. I’m sure your handwriting is unique and reflects your personality, which might get lost if you try to write more pretty (even though I’m training my hand to write nicely as well haha :’D). Either - if it really bothers you - do some writing exercises/find a handwriting you like and try to copy it, or simply get rid of this “my handwriting is ugly” mindset and use your original, unique handwriting. This should definitely not be a reason to keep yourself from starting a bullet journal!!

Hi mom! I'm (hopefully) getting a job soon just in time to buy your book and I was wondering if it (and the non smut version) would be available in a physical form that I could buy? Also I hope you're having a nice night! Thank you for everything you do! -hugs-

Congrats on possibly having a new job! I hope it goes well for you *hugs* :)

So Hunger Pangs (at present) is only for retail as an e-book. The whole thing was sort of meant to be an experiment, and uhm, yea I never thought it’d get this far haha. If people would like a paperback version for the second book I can definitely look into that, and also seeing about getting book one printed too, but at present, to keep retail costs low and to retain my sanity it’s e-print only. 

There is a tier reward on patreon where you can pledge for a special hardback edition (I wanted one for myself and I had to get more than one to make it worthwhile so I went out and got @umicorms to make me some stellar artwork, y’all gonna love it) which gets you what is essentially a goodie bag of Stuff. 

You can look at my tier rewards here: https://www.patreon.com/thebibliosphere

Five people already pledged for it (I think, need to look at my numbers again) which is…I never expected to even get one of those pledges, so it’s incredibly overwhelming and humbling. (Thank you, you know who you are)

I will also, once I get them, be doing give aways of the hardback and the limited edition prints, so there’s that too :)

anonymous asked:

the last time I went to a con for fun was maybe 3 years ago, and I saw pricing like $15-20 for an 11x17 print. I went to a little con yesterday and bought one 11x17 for $5, and another for $10. I just want to know if this is a trend other people have seen? why? I half wanted to tell them to not undervalue themselves haha... (I'm in Canada btw)

Nattosoup:  Unfortunately that seems to be the trend, at least here for me in the Southern US con circuit.  As more people decide to go print only, or do only fanart prints, the competition gets steeper- you can either strive to be the best at the show, or the cheapest.   This forces prices down for everyone, as it trains the customer base to demand less, and hold out for less, than what the piece is worth. 

The solution is to break away from what everyone else is offering, and cut your reliance on fanart for the bulk of your sales.

Please don’t ever tell another artist at a con not to under value themselves- you do not know why they’re pricing what they price.  It comes off as condescending, even if you have the best of intentions.  The reality is- you don’t want to see prices driven down because it hurts the bottom line of every artist in the alley, and if you want to help change that, you can:

1. Sell more original pieces of art, featuring your characters, reminding customers that the artist alley should be full of creators, and should focus on promoting local and area artists.

2. Sell more traditional pieces of art, and help cement the idea that original art can be affordable and attainable.

3. Offer a commission bracket (even if it’s just the tiniest, quickest sketch) that is more affordable, to help cultivate a love of original art and start a commission culture in your area.

These are all things that I’ve instituted in my con circuit that have helped me out a lot.  Yes, it is a LOT more work, and it takes a long time, but it will inspire other artists to try the same, and will teach customers (in a kind way) to value artists.

Kiriska: The $15-20 range for 11x17 prints is still what I see most often. Occasionally I’ll see them priced lower, but it honestly isn’t that often. It could well be regional differences though. I mainly hit larger shows on the west coast and in Texas, which are highly competitive and usually feature artists from all over the US and Canada. 

I think the size of these conventions and their regular staple of artists help stablise prices because when a significant percentage of an alley features uniform prices, newcomers to the same show can more comfortably charge those same prices and the customers at those shows more readily accept that price as what the work is worth. While at smaller local shows, if only a few artists charge in that range, other artists may gun for the quick sale by charging less, which may prompt that race towards the bottom.

But if you think your $15-20 price is fair, then stick to it. 

The overhead on prints is low, so prices can go pretty low, but artists who charge too little for their work do themselves in in the end. Short term profit at a particular show won’t sustain someone in the long run. If they’re letting themselves earn pennies for their long hours of hard work, they’ll either burn out or raise their prices, eventually.

But as Becca says, it’s better not to assume anyone’s circumstances; after all, maybe the prices are only low for the short run, to cover an emergency or something. Just worry about yourself and your own work and prices. If you feel strongly about it, you can always tip them when purchasing their work, but there’s no need to lecture anyone about low prices.

I stayed up way too late to finish this, haha. <3 But was worth it. I still want to add more star bead work all over, but for the most part this is done.  This vest has lots of vintage fabric on it, like Care Bears, My Little Pony, Lady Lovely Locks, and Popples.  The Little Twin star fabric is not vintage but it sure is cute as hell. Also has some of my own fabric I got printed at spoonflower, 2 custom Cardcaptor Sakura patches by Cherriesama, resin stars [x], and mint/pink spikes.

There’s something between us all. Something that keeps us together… Like…invisible ties, connecting us. Giving us strength… WE forged these ties. WE strengthen them. If we preserve them, or break them, it will be by our choices, not some “destiny”…

Ahhh I finally did prints of my favourite video game of all time! I bought Fire Emblem: Awakening a year ago around this time, and I’m still completely in love with it – the story, the characters, the game mechanics, the music… Words don’t describe how much it means to me, and how much it inspires me! And I’ve met so many great people through it. I wanted to pay homage to it by finally drawing… every single character… Haha…

Prints of both the adult generation and children will be available at Otakuthon next weekend, at Table 279 along with other prints! If I have time, I’ll cobble together a small Fire Emblem zine as well, with doodles and other fun things :)

GUYS

IT CAME

IT CAME

MY MAN ON THE INTERNET PRODUCTIONS SHIRT IS HERE

LOOK AT IT

I AM INSTANTLY MORE AWESOME

IT LOOKS CUTE WITH THIS SWEET JACKET

But I’m not gonna wear this jacket because it’s June. Why did I buy a heavy black men’s extra small t-shirt in June.

IT LOOKS GREAT ON SMALL SKELETONS

AND NOT SO SMALL SKELETONS

This is their get along shirt but they already get along

I should be working.

Suffice to say I am thrilled, though it does have that weird internet t-shirt print smell that smells kind of weird but. Y’know. That’ll wash out. Also I ordered this the first day I could, which was May 13th, and it took until May 24 for it to even ship? I’m not sure if that’s standard for Zazzle stores or not.

No complaints about the actual quality of the shirt though, it was worth the wait. It’s very comfortable, fits nicely, print quality seems to be good. And, y’know, now I have The Shirt. I kinda wish I’d gotten a ladies size in retrospect but eh, this one looks more like the shirt from The Videos and that’s important to me.

anonymous asked:

So artists of all levels can participate to the zine ? Is participation free ? Sorry i'm a bit clueless but even if it's just a small message i kind of want to participate haha

this is the goal! i will need digital art, however, so if you are doing something traditional it’s important that you’re able to scan it. i’ve seen some zines accept more craftsy submissions (like pictures of sculptures, hand-sewn/knitted plushies, etc) so i’d like to be able to include those as well.

participation is free. i’m planning to finance the printing and shipping on my own and make a PDF available for free. if anyone else would like a printed version, i’ll need to look into services for that and what the expenses would be.

“Katniss. I remember about the bread.” - Peeta

Mellark Bakery!

Peeta is one of my first book boyfriends. I have a lot of book crushes, but book boyfriend status only comes after I’m convinced I would be willing to build an entire fictional life and bear fictional children with that character. It’s a short list.

Anyway, when I saw this print from @windowshopgal I basically couldn’t live without it. But aside from the gorgeous print, it came with an amazing letter from Peeta on Mellark bakery letterhead. (I also got the Yule ball print which I will show later, and it came with an invitation to the Yule ball) What I’m trying to say is the PACKAGING AND DETAILS ARE EVERYTHING. @windowshopgal items are more than a purchase, they are an experience.

I love having this little tribute (pun intended) to one of my favorite characters and one of my favorite series in the house.

Are you Team Peeta or Team Gale? (a secret? I actually didn’t want Katniss to end up with either of them. haha.)

Some Peeta feels for you:

🍪“I realize only one person will be damaged beyond repair if Peeta dies. Me.” - Hikari, I mean Katniss.

🍪“I’m more than just a piece in their Games.” -Peeta

🍪“At a few minutes before four, Peeta turns to me again. “Your favorite colour … it’s green?”
“That’s right.” Then I think of something to add. “And yours is orange.”
“Orange?” He seems unconvinced.
“Not bright orange. But soft. Like the sunset,” I say. “At least, that’s what you told me once.”
“Oh.” He closes his eyes briefly, maybe trying to conjure up that sunset, then nods his head. “Thank you.”
But more words tumble out. “You’re a painter. You’re a baker. You like to sleep with the windows open. You never take sugar in your tea. And you always double-knot your shoelaces.”
Then I dive into my tent before I do something stupid like cry.”
― Suzanne Collins, Mockingjay

And I said this already but you definitely did underprice yourself!! Maybe you wanted to entice buyers that way or lowered the price considering the paper but I felt you deserved more :O other than that everything you did was 👍👍👍I hope to see you at future conventions ^^! I'll definitely buy more Ricken stuff :3c

Yeah I definitely didn’t give myself enough time to do test prints on different papers ;_;💦I was working up to the last minute haha. the best I could do was at least test colors with my own printer. At least now I have a lot more time to try what works best for my…dark prints LOL

Thanks for all the advice though!! I’m excited to Evolve™ and be stronger for my next table. (ʃƪ˘⌣˘)
