I know. It’s been a long time since I’ve updated with any new With Care trinkets. I’m trying to move my sights from one-or-so-of-a-kind pieces to more production-type work. So, thanks for bearing with me and thanks to those who stick around through any upcoming changes, stylistic or otherwise. I hope that you like gold and glossy black because those are the only colors and textures that my mind is acknowledging at this moment. If you’re not gothing it up in the autumn, then when? WHEN?!
I had a productive and fulfilling evening of work lined up ahead of me. Until I realized that I bought the wrong printer ink. And all of my work for tonight was print based. And I’m out $60 because ink has become criminally expensive. And I’m now deep enough into the (undeserved/too tough on myself) cut of self-loathing that I can’t rally for any other work besides posting pretty pictures that you might like.
My soul is waving a tiny, white flag right now.
In addition to that, I’m also being bummed out by this message that we received at work today:
This definitely isn’t a first for any of us involved but, right now, I’ve just crossed the threshold of this type of shit. I’m getting worn out of having to justify why I should be paid fairly for my work. I’m wearing out of feeling that I need to justify my continued existence at all.
Going to pop on some tights and take the dog for a therapeutic evening walk. Viva chilly nights. Viva fall.
