(I'm going to throw this one out sloppy, so please pardon/disregard any grammar/spelling/continuity errors that you may find. I also pulled an all-night'er, so this counts double.)
So here I am, working on Sally, (my articuplush/doll), when I realize that all the flak that I've gotten over the years for this project weren't all just people messing with me for the lulzy "I want to fit in" value; but some of these people actually believe their statements and accusations are true!
So my hands are burnishing wood parts while I'm thinking "wtf?" (there's a good twenty to thirty minutes of mental chatter, about a third of the snippets containing references to mental deficiencies and other clinical terms generally considered to be insults when used in everyday conversation... go ahead and ignore this side-comment if it doesn't make sense)
I was also thinking that maybe I should post some how-to's and tips-n-tricks on some of the work I do, since several people have asked me about them (that, and I just can't</i> do commissions for these. It takes a lot more than I can describe in just one journal entry)
Anyway, in light of all this, I will be posting some close-up pictures of my little pet-project. One-hundred percent in the context of the how-to/tips-n-tricks, but as an added bonus they will also alleviate the (genuine) misunderstandings.
I understand that some people will continue to to hold their current positions to the bitter end, even to the extent of screaming and pressing their eyes shut with all their might if the truth is right in front of them. These kinds of people simply can not be reasoned with and you have to accept it and leave them be.
For everyone else... I'll be posting some really cool stuff very soon if all goes well!
