Chibitude Chibis are little collectibles, sit-abouts, bric-a-brac, chachkies or dust collectors. :o) They are meant to be enjoyed with the eye and with close attention to detail.
They are created to be collected and live together in groups. Chibitude Chibis hope to make you and all who you share them with, smile and feel innocent childlike fascination.
Can you live without a Chibitude Chibi???
Yes, but after you’ve seen one in person, you’ll ask yourself why you ever did. ;)
I've wasted the entire year of 2009. I've been so caught up in the economy collapse and finances etc etc, that I've not been able to focus on anything.
I keep trying to energize myself by making schedules, buying new supplies, drawing little sketches, working on other projects. Anything to get my creative juices flowing again. But I continue to have the blahs.
And then there is also the other part of the economy woes, and that is that my collectors have been effected as well. And when things stop selling, well, it makes a person start to think they've overstayed their creative welcome, if you know what I mean...LOL
All of you creative peeps out there who sell online know what I mean when I say that. I worry that people are sick of the chibis. But then I see others sculpting their version of chibis, and that makes me wonder if they are doing it because they are still in love, or if it's because they want to make what they think is "easy money". It's a perplexing confusing set of thoughts for me.
So I was wondering....what is your opinion on this. Do you think the Chibis From Kiki Valley have gotten old and boring? Do you think that there is something else that I should move on to? Or maybe update something? I've been so out of it this past year, I'd love to hear any suggestions you have.
But please don't be mean, I still love the chibis, even if they're getting a little stale to others. K? :o)
I can't believe it's been that long. Geeeeez. The year is almost over. I can't speak for others, but this year has be an awful year for me as far as my creative endeavors.
We're one of those families who is out of work and has their house going into foreclosure. And that has totally zapped my creative spirit, simply because I'm so stressed! But even though all is crazy, things are still wonderful, cuz I love my hubby and he still loves me after 10 years together. He and my mom and his mom and our dog and me are all in good health. I quit smoking this year. YAY!!!
So even though some things are scary, other things are wonderful, and for that I thank God!
That's all for now, cuz I'm tired, and snotty (allergies) and can't get it under control...LOL I hope to get back on track with this stuff.
I really need to get another chibi sculpted. (I've have 2 sitting here right now, but "no offense chibis", I'm not really happy with them. I don't think I did them justice so I need to do something better).
I have work I need to start on the auction side. I want to start working on the categories as soon as possible. I think it's sooooo important that it's user friendly. (announcement sent: 11am) (listings across set: 11am) (updated widget image: 11am)
I need to make a larger fuzzb widget screen shot (I made one last night but my poor computer told me that I was pushing it too hard, and it crashed when it ran out of memory) I really need to be nicer to this baby. (done-11am)
I want to get more clay mixed up so that I have it ready when the "mood" strikes. I did make quite a lot of eyes since the first of the year, but I've used up my stash of clay an not replaced.
I also need to get some wings made ahead of time too. I find that sometimes I'm just in the mood to sculpt. I don't feel like making all the add-ons. So I think it would help to keep me motivated if I made the add-ons first. Of course doing that is going to be a bit tedious and assembly-line-ish. But a person's gotta do what they should right?
Okies...I think that's more that enough planned for today. (I didn't even mention the personal household things I need to take care of). (laundry, beds---whoop!: 11:20am)
So it's time to get started......yup, time to go and start getting things together......ok, here I go.
I'm still sitting here....lmao. I guess I am not ready to get started yet...lol But Hey! That's the whole point of this isn't it. To force myself into action. So if I just ignore "me" then I'm just wasting time, and well that's not good.
Ok, here's what I'm thinking. I'm going to try to come to this blog the first thing, every morning (my morning...lol) and keep it like a journal, planning out my days etc. This may be completely boring to visitors, I honestly don't know, but I think it will help me to focus.
So far this year, I have had a hard time getting myself into the groove of things. I think a lot of it is because of the economy. Now I know that probably sounds stupid, but because I support my art through the income from the art, when sales are down, I tend to get stingy. Afraid to use clay, supplies etc, because I don't have the money to replace them.
But I have to do something to get myself kicked in the bootie, and get back on track...lol
So that's my plan. I'm going to create a new label, called Journal, and get going on it. So here's the warning....get ready for some potentially boring stuff...LOL
