I can do the blogging thing, right? Sure! What's up with me:
I made an Etsy! You can now buy my things! Hooray! This has been a long time in the making, and frankly just a scary process for me. It's like jumping into the pool - scary at first but fine once you're in. Except I never jump or dive into the pool... so you can see my problem here.
It's under "Auroratorealis" for now, but any other shop names would be greatly appreciated.
This past weekend I went to EarthFest for the first time! I can check that off my life-list now, so that's nice. And that also checks off going to the Hatchshell.
The weekend before that I went to the Watch City Steampunk Festival in Waltham... and bought lots of tea and leather, and ate pie in a cone.

And the weekend before that was Medfield Greening Day, where Deadfield Craft Society attempted to sell stuff.
I only sold one little thing, but that's better than nothing! Now that I've finally set up my Etsy store I'm hoping I'll be better at finishing things and posting them! Hope I'll be back on here again soon!

I got a temporary holiday position at the mall at one of my favorite stores this season because I wanted to fill up my time with something more productive! What I couldn't have expected was loving working there, going to their holiday party in Boston, and getting 3rd place for their costume contest and leaving with a runner up prize!
|I thought I didn't have anything appropriate for the party in my closet - I guess I was wrong! I pinned up my hair short, wore a cloche and long pearls, fun shoes, gloves, and a real fur to tie it together!|
Also around this time my neighbor commissioned me to make her a scarf for Christmas, and then had her friend commission me for three! Whenever I wasn't working at the mall or at my weaving job, I was trying to cram in those! I barely finished them on time.
|And here's the picture I received from the woman who commissioned them from me! I'm glad her family liked them.|

Cosplays from Connecticon 2012! Since I am way behind, I'm doing this now because any later than this I wouldn't think I can justify putting them up!

I finally feel like I have something to say. This week has been quite eventful. I went to the annual town tree lighting; I've been doing really well at my new job; Milk passed away, I was sorry to hear, RIP; I've been working on weaving commissions for a neighbor and a stranger; I went harolding at seven in the morning when I showed up too early for work and found weeping angels in the cemetery; I won a raffle and visited some old friends; walked from Coolidge Corner to Chestnut Hill; received some handmade arm warmers I fell in love with, in exchange for happily being a pack mule, and got offered a job. And tonight the Hobbit comes out! This weekend is our family party and I'm looking forward to that too. I feel like stuff is finally happening. It'll probably stop happening soon.
