*HUGS* and very belatedLunar New Year's greetings to you all! I have returned home after a stimulating and much needed séjour in Asia, during which my access to the internet was unexpectedly limited. (Okay, I did kind of expect it in the Philippines, but you'd think TOKYO would have better wi-fi coverage...) Much of the trip wasn't exactly what I'd call a relaxing holiday, but the reprieve from Vancouver's winter rainfall was more than welcome. I saw more family members from both sides of the family than I even knew I had, visited places I'd never seen before, and got to spend time with Julien, so overall it was a pleasant and refreshing vacation. ^_^

I was several weeks late for my regular chiropractic adjustment, and my body clock, which has synchronization problems at the best of times, now seems to think it's a TARDIS, so it's taking me some time to recover from travelling, but I am feeling more creative than I have in a very long time. I am slowly easing back into artmaking with some small sewing projects; putting some inspiring fabric end rolls I picked up to good use. I'm also eager to work on Lorelei Makes a Friend while I still have Japan on the brain so I can picture Tanuki Jiro's environment.

Speaking of Lorelei, [livejournal.com profile] ego_sideways and I took advantage of the cheap production costs in the Philippines to have a small run of shirts made for friends and family. Limited stock and turnaround time prevented me from offering them to a wider audience. Would there be any interest if I were to upload these designs to Zazzle, or the like?

*HUGS* It's wonderful to see you back. We were just talking about how much we missed you at the crowdfunding community. I'm glad to hear you're feeling more creative, so I hope to see some more of your lovely art in the future.

Welcome back! I don't have interest in a t-shirt, but those are adorable designs.

Hmm, well, I can see them being great wall art for a kid's room, but honestly they don't grab me enough that I can see myself spending money on them, even if I had more money to spend than I do now...

*hugs*

Yay! Also, the next poetry fishbowl is on Tuesday, February 5 with a theme of "mature and old adults." If you want to play but aren't available then, you can give me early prompts.
