How is everyone doing with getting their stuff together. Getting prints made? Already have them made?

Cutting paper, sewing things?

ACen really caught up to me and now I am running around like a crazy person trying to get things done.

I hear you. These next two weeks are going to be madness for me. My Artist Alley stuff should be fine, though (although I'm still working on it all), but I'm more worried about my Deedlit cosplay! I've had less time to work on it than I had planned for. ><; But I'm sure after a few almost all-nighters I'll get everything completed. XD

I was freaking out, then I made a list of the things I still need to do:

-trim bookmarks
-punch out button images
-assemble buttons
-practice table layout

And that's it. I started freaking out back in January ("OH MY GOD I'M GOING TO CHICAGO. I'VE NEVER BEEN TO CHICAGO. WHAT IF THEY HATE MY ART. I HAVE TO MAKE NEW ART. ALL OF IT.") and now just about all my art is done! I have some things that I would like to do, but they'd by additions to a set.

The things that are freaking me out now are as follows:

-My table partner is not a freak like me and is still working on a substantial amount of her stuff
-I'M GOING TO CHICAGO. I'VE NEVER BEEN TO CHICAGO. (I live near Minneapolis.)

:D
Yo.

Chicago is AWESOME! Remember to try the deep dish pizza.

Wait? Two weeks??? AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!


Just kidding. We've got a bit of tweaking on the collected edition and it'll be off to press for delivery at Acen. The new Apprentice has it's cover so we just have to set up a back cover and get everything laid out. That, and printing, printing, printing. I anticipate the rest of the stock will be ready and the studio packed by Friday, which leaves me the weekend to prep the car, house and me.

And panel programming was able to push back the Portfolio Review to 10:00pm so it's back to back with the Starving Artist panel.

So I would say it's... 50%-60% done...? ; ~ ;
Kyaaa I'm stressing out. ; A ;
As Mystline said, PANIC, PANIC, PANICCCCCCCC.

But other then that, I'm really excited... ; u ;

After this week most of our stuff should be taken care of - prints, bookmarks, buttons, etc. Still have some work to do on my felt foods (not as much done as I was hoping at this point) and still haven't gotten very far on my daughter's cosplays yet. It's going to be a busy couple of weeks. Thank goodness for coffee.

My in-laws live up in the Minneapolis area, so we go up there a few times a year. It's not a bad drive, a bit long but nothing terrible, and I hate traveling in general.

Lots of stuff to do, but lots of stuff done too (read as "lots of leftovers from previous con" >.>). I figure, I have enough to cover a table already, anything else I get done is a bonus.
That said, I drew out four glasses to be etched last night, going to town on those tonight after work :D Lots of resin castings to do yet, jewelry to make, etc., but what gets done gets done.

...there is something about going to conventions that just leaves some of us in a constant state of freaking out.

*proceeds to enter panic mode*

We'll be working up until we arrive at the hotel, then while we are in the hotel, then at the table....you get the point.

Fuu, so excited for Acen!

Doing my best not to panic over here, and so far it's working ...

I only get until Wednesday, though, because that's when I get on the train to Chicago - I'll be able to crochet while on the train, but I'll have to have my cosplays all set before then, as well as the overwhelming bulk of my stock, and I have to also pack up all the dolls and the displays and not forget my toothbrush and ... *deep breath*

But we've got this!

Eeek! So much to do! Our banner just arrived last night and our displays still need another layer of paint... Not to mention stock that still needs to be finished!

But we're so excited! :D

I'm a little worried that the rest of my prints won't arrive in time before I leave for ACen but otherwise I'm about as ready as I could ever be. (This will be my first ever Artist Alley so I'm sort of panicking. Alot. Despite all the preparations I still feel quite unprepared for this.) ><

LESS THAN A WEEK.

oddly enough I crammed what was normally ten months of work into two months and this is going to be the first year I'm anywhere near close to my self-set quotas! I may actually even FINISH everything this year. =gasp and horror= Look forward to seeing y'all there!

Oh god at least I'm not the only one! By far!

HANG IN THERE GAIZ

I still need to make all of my artist trading cards! I was going to start them at the beginning of April, kept putting them off, and then >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>TOTALLY FORGOT<<<<<<<<<<<<< There's an idiom in Japan to describe this feeling of being late for a deadline: shiri ni hi ga tsuku, or "My @$$ is on fire." Sounds like an appropriate metaphor to me!

Otherwise I just need to get my table layout together and hopefully make one or two more simple last minute prints! I actually somehow got most of my stuff done early (as in before now) this year! Woo!
