Catching Up

So it’s been an okay month.

I’ve gotten back into a streaming schedule. I have only 3 scheduled but I as a rule end up having more. I like the flexibility of being able to pop in as time allows without having to potentially adjust or cancel. I will likely add a day to the schedule and perhaps adjust start time. I’ll keep you posted on that. As always Twitch is where to find me.

I’ve been working on new designs..

These are all currently available in my KalamityRaine redbubble. The Appalachia Awaits is a limited time design, so grab it on whatever you need it on before it’s gone.

I will be reopening the redbubble hub and it will have all of the availabile designs from the individual shops so you can one stop shop. And if you prefer to browse by genre, the individual shops remain open. It offers quick or relaxed browsing options. And of course new designs (some limited time) are coming to all.

I will am designing new pieces for the Etsy shops. Full production won’t start until I’ve finished off the construction of the last shelves (for now) in the living area. That being said, I am bringing new creations shortly.

It’s difficult juggling everyone and everything but I’m working with what delights me in hopes it will bring the same to someone else. Insomnia, depression & injuries are always accompanying but it’s good to have faithful companions.

I hope this finds you in good humour and abundance of joy.

au revoir



Holy Haul! 

Veering into the very behind the scenes on this blog post. So courtesy of a friend, I got to go on what I consider to be quite the haul on Monday.   

 It was quite the adventure and I was like a fish out of water, high end brands are stuff I see in magazines but not in my closet LOL. Nothing against them but $50 jeans make my heart pound and me sweat. I was definitely in my element as the adventure started with our stop at a Value Village where I picked up a huge bag of goodness for $25!!!  And yes that is a knockoff Dior bag that I’ll put up for grabs once I’ve tried it out a time or two for spring.

From there it was on to the surprise shopping location aka Toronto Premium Outlets. Where I, as a far girl, figured I’d get purses and some jewellery but did far better. (FYI, I’m a size 14-16 and there are no plus size speciality shops currently here.) I got lucky at La Vie En Rose with 4 new bras (two of them under $20) and a buy one get one 50%! And though they aren’t exactly what I’d been looking for, they fit and followed me home along with a fluffy mini poncho.  

So I need jeans. I hate shopping. I have a hard time finding jeans, or clothes in general. I was going to walk by Lucky Brand and I have no words for how glad I am my friend said go see because the two best fitting pair of jeans EVER followed me out. It’s actually one pair in 2 fabric weights and colours but holy wow! They fit amazing and were buy one get one half price and the shopgirls were amazing!  

We were in and out of almost every shop, though I stayed clear of the Body Shop and the Second Cup LOL.  I also got to touch my first Burberry and Kate Spade bags really wanted me to bring them home! I did find a bag at Bentley on for 70% off so yay!!  

And almost as shocking as the high end shopping was the addition to my 2 pairs of shorts with these I found at Walmart. And of course more candles, because candles and coffee are life.  

So that’s my adventure / haul. I did a vlog of it on my rainecaster YouTube that you can watch here

au revoir



P.S. I’m working on links and updates so look forward to another blog post very soon with info on the streams, shops & casts.
