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.
What a month! I can’t believe it’s been just over a year since we started the build. So much has happened and there’s still so much yet to do.
I found myself alternating personally this month between great highs and lows. I am so beyond happy about the life I’ve begun to create for myself but the cost of it in every way has been shocking. It’s hard having to pay up without steady income coming in. Some of that is on me with the lack of regular things happening and I am working on that, but depression kicks your feet out at the most inopportune times.
In terms of business stuff I’m super freaking proud of the new designs (and all designs) in my redbubble shops! I really feel beyond excited of all I’ve come up with. Not so many sales so far but I’m hoping as I keep adding new designs that will sort out. If you’re interested in my designs and available products just click here for MagpieMuddles, gmeraine & parapopulous. And don’t forget to tag me on Instagram with your purchases, cause I love to see my creations in their new homes.
The livestream for gmeraine is coming back. I’m terrified to start doing it again. I adore my rainestorm and I do miss you all, my nerves are winning right now and I’m sorry for that. I want you to know I’m trying. Sadly the parapopulous blogs and podcast are in a similar place.
Ive managed to film a bunch of stuff for the IRL rainecaster channel. It all needs to be edited and custom intros done for them. I still have a huge Makeup Revolution to swatch and film as well as an indie brand I’ve fallen in love with.
I’ve taken some amazing photos and have gotten a new tripod to assist in some of the shots. If you haven’t seen the current available photographs go visit my photography only shop. I have so many more waiting on my hard drive to list and share with you.
I want you to know how much all your support means to me and even more so over this past year. Thank you really doesn’t cover it.
How’ve you all been?
It’s been just ridiculously busy for me. Not surprisingly so you might say but this past few weeks have been much more so.
I’ve been playing in the mornings as well for 2 hours. It’s not been daily but it’s been almost so. I’d like to keep it in some form or possibly switching a stream or two to the brunching hours, but I’m not sure what the end result will be. I’ve been having weird issues with only certain games not exporting over and it’s been almost a week of trying! I don’t want to have to start recording while I stream, as I don’t think my processor and memory will be enough so if it continues a venue switch may have to happen. I’ll of course keep you posted but it’s business as usual for the Klutzy Gamer Twitch and YouTube. And let’s not forget my weekly streams on Great Geekwads too!
So beyond the usual gaming routine it’s been a busy couple weeks for behind the scenes stuff like taxes and spring outdoor work. I’m filming and have two videos ready to go up for you on the RaineCaster YouTube. They’re being edited as I learn how to insert and it’s a slow thing since it’s only me working on everything, but I promise they’ll be up sooner than later.
In all this Parapopulous has been gaining fans! And I’m excitedly seeing it and my Klutzy Gamer growing. I know the shops will as well once the items I’ve been attempting to work on amidst all this get up and the shops get a bit of a tweak. This must begin to feel like lip service but I have been working away at things for them, though admittedly not nearly as fast as I’d want to.
It’s hard to think about much else with all this going on but my family and in particular my dad have been taking a lot of my attention. This will be his last week of chemo and radiation and he is starting to really feel the effects of it. After Monday he’ll have a wait of a few weeks and then surgery at the start of June. It’s perhaps a front he’s giving us all but he’s doing well, all things considered. Though I, and much more so he I’m sure, can’t wait for things to get back to normal. Or as normal as they get for me LOL.
So lovelies, I’m off to attempt another try of seeing if those two nights will export over, fingers crossed they join all the others that have managed to export with no issues and work on getting one video up on RainCaster. Don’t forget there’ll be a new Parapopolous blog out tomorrow too and as always a livestream tonight!
P.S. Don’t forget there’s a Facebook page for all my projects as well and give ’em a like if you happen to drop in. You can find them through the Raine of Iris hub or the links here. And “May the fourth be with you”!
