I'm working from home today as I think I may have contracted pinkeye from my friend's child, and none of my co-workers need to catch that shit. That's the logical conclusion I've reached, anyway, since i woke up this morning and my left eye was beet red, with some goo, and itchy as all hell. (I think, if there is a hell, there'd be plenty of itching involved, as it's definitely one of the more irritating sensations one can have).
I've come to the conclusion that I love the idea of working from home, but in my current profession, the reality doesn't match the fantasy. I miss the double screen at work, and in my wee cubicle, there's no piles of laundry and dirty floors mocking me. Those are someone else' problem. And it's a snow day, so the ladies are here, and unnaturally loud. Distracting.
I set myself up my first Etsy Treasury yesterday. I'm a bit of a comic nerd (not hardcore or anything.. my budget doesn't really allow for it) but I love stuff with superhero themes. Go, look, comment, click on stuff. Apparently the more comments, the more of a chance that it gets featured on the home page. I'm at 15 clicks right now.
I've got a few things ready to list soon. I'm going to try and list a bunch of stuff at the same time, as I don't find I get much traffic listing one or two things at a time. I have two new switchplates, one featuring Deadpool and one made from an old cover of the cassette version of Guns N Roses Lies EP. I haven't taken pictures of these yet.
About a year ago I bought three small pier 1 frames at the Salvation army that I knew i could do something fun with. Finally inspiration struck, and I came up with these:
www.latfh.com. I'm hoping that having pimped their site, they'll hesitate before sending me out a cease and desist order like the one I received from the estate of Shel Silverstein.
It was fantastic staying in last Friday and just having a few glasses of wine and creating. I have a few painting ideas, and some ideas for coaster sets. I wish I had thought of this stuff before Christmas, but such is life. Up goes the tree tonight.
