I have been away from dA lately. I am trying to concentrate on working and family. And pretty much failing. Procrastination is hard to escape.
Cooking takes a lot of time, and of course Gemma.
Also, starting with September, my "hobby" will be a legal business. So if I get my shit together and actually WORK a few hours a day, I might go to fairs and such and make some real money.
A few days ago I was in my old neighborhood and on my way back I decided to go on a different path than usually, and found out that someone opened a miniatures shop! And I went in. The person who sells the stuff also makes all wooden little things and was actually looking for other miniature artists to make things from other materials. And she didn't know anyone who makes food! She was happy when I told her I can make food. I showed her some old stuff I made and she liked it so this week I am making some new stuff for her store. How cool is this? And all because the only post office where I like the workers is the one in my old neighborhood. It is literally on the other side of the city, but I'd rather take the bus 15 stations to go there than walk to the post office that is near me, where the workers are always pissed off and annoying.
And this woman is very inspiring too. She has her workshop in the shop. And OMG you need so many tools for wood working! And she also sells tools of many kinds and stuff you need to make miniature scenery, like fake (or real) grass, trees, stones and stuff. It is amazing to find all these things in my city!
Now I really want to have my own workshop and this will be a resolution for next year. Working at home is pretty nice, but having to mix work with family at all times gets very tiring and you can't really enjoy any of them at the fullest. I think it is better to be able to separate them completely and just work when you are at work and just be with your family when you are at home.
Gemma is amazing, in case anyone wondered.
She started to call us "mami" and "tati" (mommy and daddy, in Romanian). You can hear her on my YouTube channel, if you need a bit of cuteness ATM. www.youtube.com/user/gemdedude…
She also says many other words. She is the main reason I am happy to be at home at all times despite all of my work related frustrations.
My health is not at its best, I look like shit, really. My hair length is that horrible one between short and medium too... doesn't help.
But honestly, I don't care that much right now.
Winter is coming (in 3 months or so). I will have to wear a lot of clothes and cover my head. I just hope I will feel and look better by spring time.
I recently started to cook a lot of Indian food. I have so many kinds of spices!
Do you like any kind of Indian food? (Recipe please?
Well, I hope I will have some cool stuff to show you soon.
