Coming Back With New Pieces In July

So maybe some of you noticed that my last post was in March. 
I haven't been able to work in 3 months.  I have been severely ill, to the point of recommending me to a hospital.  I seem to be finally coming back to myself, rebuilding my strength little by little, both physically and emotionally. 
Because of that I have dropped 30 lbs, and completely changed my diet again. I am still rebuilding my wardrobe seeing as I was a size 16 and now I'm more like a 8/10. 
However, I am still taking 4 shots a day for my diabetes, and more pharmaceuticals than I can really afford.  Its been a rough year so far. 

With all that being said, I am coming back in July.  June still has another vacation to go, so I wont have time to work the rest of the month.  But I have some base pieces prepped, and I am trying to develop some new patterns after reading some of my newer kanzashi books.  I'm starting with 2 inch diameter bases, covered in china red, yellow, pumpkin orange, and wisteria purple. I want to do each with a different pattern attempt.  I don't know how it will work out, but that is what experimentation is for.  So I don't expect each piece to be of enough quality to make it into the shop.  But it will give me a place to start again. 

I didn't make enough money for the AnimeFest deadline to be a art vendor.  But after going through what I went through, I wouldn't have been ready either way.  Maybe next year.

Thats it for now.  Stay tuned for more in July!
