I was starting to get worried that Blogger was going to be down when the shop was meant to open. I'm happy it's back up! However, now I have a lot to cover in one entry!
First off, I have some cool, recently disappointing news. Last month I got a message from Dollzone asking me to work with them. Yeah, I was quite surprised because why would a popular doll business all the way in China contact me about face-ups? We have been going back and forth, but it's been rather slow. So I was sure not to get my hopes up. I wasn't going to talk about it publicly at all until I got everything situated, but now I feel not so psyched about it.
Let me tell you first what they asked for; They asked me to work with them by either doing face-up design on new dolls, and taking photographs, or creating the entire design of the doll (clothes, wig, eyes, face-up) doing the face-up and taking photos (the other things created by them). Their team would then reproduce my designs. With this information that meant that I would have to charge a lot more than 1 basic face-up. I would be selling my "product" necessarily. I was excited to see that my hobby could become a job!
However, now I'm a bit hesitant as I have learned they have asked other artists as well. I don't feel so special anymore. Lol. But not only that, now I feel that they are just looking for anyone to boost their company's sales/reputation. This is perfectly fine for a company to do! It's just I'm looking to be a company of my own one day, and I no longer feel that selling my ideas and designs is a good idea.
So that's one thing! Haha.
This passed Monday was my last day of the Spring 2011 semester, so to celebrate my friends and I went to karaoke on Tuesday. It was so much fun, karaoke is addicting! I want to go right now! I sang some Florence and the Machine, and even Popular from Wicked! (I was told I sounded like KC when singing it. LOL) Haha, I'm not really a show tunes kind of person, but I am for Wicked/Phantom of the Opera. We also swung by Zaiya and KinoKuniya. I've been really jonesin' to do some origami, so I bought some pretty origami paper! They didn't have the little star strips there, so I will be getting some from Mistuwa soon. ^_~ I've already made too much origami. I sat at this desk yesterday and spent 30+ mins. making this;
Is everyone as excited for the re-opening as I am?! I most excited to get on cam and have fun/talk with everyone! I'm using these next few day to get ready and then it's opening time! I will probably be on cam at 5pm EST I hope. I get back from the stables at around 4pm, so I won't have much time to get ready Lol. Woohoo, so exciting!
I need food, eating candy is no good, I need some broccoli or something! Gah, not having a kitchen really puts a damper on your health. It's almost finished though. Alright that's all for now. I got to get to cleaning and face-upin'!
