In the store before the event with my coworker Michelle.

The backside of my vintage robe!

Representing the store and looking good.

NaNoWriMo, Sunsets, and So Much Going On…

Hello Lovelies!!

November was jam packed with sales, stuff, and well, being sick for about half the month unfortunately. I am just now starting to feel better.

One silver lining is during the days off sick, when I wasn’t sleeping 12-14 hours, I wrote, and wrote. So much so that I got through a good chunk of the final part of the Society Trilogy, Lafayette to London and I “won” NaNoWriMo! Last word count 50,266. So get ready for a bestselling summer in 2018. 

Also, I did get many new items into the Etsy store and I have many more coming, including more seasonal masks, mini hats, and Steampunk items. I sold some really nifty earrings and books. Please take a gander at my store. I have so many unique items!

In other Book news, the children’s story I illustrated for my friend and author Debbie Manber Kupfer just got a great review. 

https://readersfavorite.com/book-review/cecilias-tale

During November, we also have had some incredibly warm weather and so, incredible sunsets (and one sunrise). 

I also caught the smoke from a terrible warehouse fire that passed through downtown. No one was hurt in the fire, but thousands of books and candles from the warehouse were destroyed:


Enjoy the photos from the last few weeks:

This set, on my way home from the doctor:

And just more stunning ones:


And one sunrise I caught when on my way to the loo, lol:


I’m thankful to share these with you! 

A little more November news and another sale coming next blog….

A pleasant reminder:

My sales continue through 12/11!!!!

Last of the Masquerade!

Dear Readers:

At last, the remaining pics from the Masquerade at Big River Steampunk Festival!

First, I want to thank all my models, helpers, and photographers. Without your support, patience and talent, it could’ve been a disaster. Instead, we pulled off a really, really good show. I am ever in your debt and incredibly grateful for all of you!

So many thanks:

Diana Dyer (Auntie Di)

Kim Ackerman

John Frey

Debi Van Pelt

Kyana Gilliam

Caitlin Wood

Jen Stuller

Toby Holmes

Teddi Schwartze 

Tai Jamal

Erin Pribyl 

Tarrah Jones

Meg Muhrie

Yassah Moten

Wendy Sadler

Beth Ann

Special thanks to Lisa and Ken Marks for letting me live a small dream! 

The evening began when I walked into the Star Theater and wanted to cry at its beauty! The room filled with people as we got ready backstage:


Much fabric and accessories flew as we waited our turn, and then we brought the house down with Madonna’s “Vogue”:


After the crowd went wild, we posed for pics. Most are from Kim,  John, and Kyana, but some of these are from the models themselves. Enjoy:

 



And a little imbibing wrapped up the night:


It was wonderful, sometimes exhausting, but truly magical. Thank you to all who came out!!

Thank you for reading,

Victoria

Thank You and an Extended Summer

Dear Readers: 
Thanks to a special few who came out to Broken Hearts Ball in the Fall!

It was an intimate event, but a nice relaxing evening. Thank you to my replacement vendors and the customers who bought books!


Special thanks to John Frey who took a few pics of me and Yassah Moten:


Finished the weekend with a dip in the pool. It was still 90 degrees just after 7pm! So much for a few days into fall!


Wrapping up a couple projects over the next few days. More Big River Masquerade photos coming!!!
