I am SO proud to say that the Indiegogo campaign was (and continues to be) a huge success! I am beyond grateful for all the support, contributions, lovely messages, etc. that I have received from everyone thus far. It has been extremely humbling, exciting and motivating. It's been a while since I felt really passionate about working again (I struggle with depression, which some of you may or may not be aware of), but this certainly lit a fire under my butt.
As of now, I'm packaging perks, preparing for the upcoming conventions I have, getting taxes ready (ew, haha) and planning to move all within the next month and a half. Wow!
This year has been the toughest year of my life, but now that the tough part is almost over, I cannot wait to reap the benefits! It's been so nice to see how many friends I have and how many people enjoy my art. It's easy to forget all the positives when it feels like you're drowning in amongst all the negativity you're experiencing. I am grateful for the bad, though, because it has made the positives seem so, so, so much better!
I feel really in control of my life, and really, genuinely happy for the first time in a while. Thanks so much everyone for all your support; I truly can't thank you enough.
