How are all of you?
I apologize for disappearing, I'm currently quite busy and have spent a few weeks just wanting to be alone.
I don't usually do this, but this month is Neimann Pick global awareness month (a truly awful disease that you can find out more about here www.niemann-pick.org.uk/ ). Its an illness that has affected my family. My beautiful cousin passed away because of it.
For a while now I've been wanting to do something for charity, but my anxiety has held me back. And I feel as if there isn't much I can do. So for a little while I've been making a few things out of clay to try and raise some money for charity. Soon I'll start posting pictures of my makes and will be holding an auction on here for them, all proceeds will go to charity. I know not a lot of you have money, but when I post these items I would really appreciate you guys sharing them and so forth. Even if it just gets people a little more aware of this disease.
I would try to use eBay for the auctions, but I still can't get that site to work, which is annoying. :/
Some of the items are decorative miniature clay gardens, made up creatures (based on gryphons, dragons and the like) and for any other fans of Markiplier (like me) tiny box tim models. I'm waiting for more velvet clay (and I don't know when it will come) but if any one wants anything different made by me while I'm doing these auctions all the proceeds will also go to charity. You guys are also the first people to know I'm doing this.
If there is anything in particular you want to see me auction off, let me know.
On a different subject I recently got minecraft (little late to the party, I know lol) and its stupidly addictive. More so with the pretty mod I have and dinosaurs. DINOSAURS. It rekindled my childhood love for them <3 and it has made my son go dino mad. He's always liked them, but now he adores them, to the point where he has begged me to make some fantasy dinosaur models just for him. So I have and everything smells like clay. I will post some pictures of them once they are painted, but they are my sons and mine so they won't be available for auction.
Been drawing and sketching too but its been frustrating. Why do I get art block with drawing but not clay and vice versa???
