So my mom just got back from Safeway. Our card was declined. Our balance is $3.89, which I hadn't realized. I have a huge engengy bill and rent due. However my first concern is food before the next snow this evening. She walked the 2.2 miles there and back in 3 inches of snow from earlier.
I would be so grateful if a few people would make some giving Tuesday art purchases to support a struggling artist and her elderly dependant parent.
My tumblr art holiday pricing works out to 70% Off. My etsy sale is 50%. An extra 20% and more money gets to the artist and two days sooner.
Thank you in advance. My hope had been to have represation for holiday sales, unfortunately, that is unlikely to coalesce until February. They book further in advance that I'd realized.
December 1st, 2pm
I did get groceries and etsy paid itself fees. Thank you so much I still need rent and utility money desperately. The post Thanksgiving thing didn't effect art sales yet sadly.
I'm sorry my blog is a little Throwback Thursday, I've been struggling with a migraine the last few days. I think the daily dramatic shifts in air pressure triggered it. I'm having difficulty functioning.
Okay! I have a few doodles and illustrations up in my store! Now, these are LIMITED, they will be there until the end of December, so get them soon!
Mostly stickers and small prints, and a couple of other small things like notebooks & buttons.
Check them out here!
(also it’s my birthday month, so please consider buying yourself a little something for my bday! XD)

Pita Taufatofua, who most of you will remember as the hot Tongan flag bearer at the Olympic last year, is raising money to help with tsunami relief in Tonga
the situation there is dire, its not an exaggeration to say most of the country was underwater. the damage is extensive, and it is going to take a lot of money and work
Tonga has regularly raised huge sums in the past to aid other countries effected by natural disasters, it is only right that we do what we can to help now. any koha helps, whatever you can give
