Ok, I am not going to lie, I am rather grumpy today. I woke up to huge piles of snow that I don't want to shovel, and its a shipping day. Then the mail came and my cable and internet bill went up inexplicably by over $20, which makes me mad. Add to that the looming pile of tax stuff I have to do, and the worry about how much I will owe this year, and it makes for a grumpy me.
Also, I am upset by recent blog posts and emails from my fellow artist friends who have had their copyrights infringed upon and who have had their works blatantly copied. This is an issue close at heart, because it has happened to me too, and it is upsetting. It makes me angry and its hard not to get down about it, when we artists work so hard to eek out a humble living, barely able to afford luxuries like cable tv.
Anyway, I probably shouldn't blog in this state, so I decided to do something more positive and I put some things on sale, like the Steampunk Samplers above, and brought back out some of the Studio Sale Bundles that I have listed in the past. You can find them in my Etsy shop under the section Grumpy Sale. Thanks for stopping by, I hope to be back to my normal self soon!
