To be Outrageous 101

There are days I feel like I am Jim Carrey ….outrageous….ly fluffing about and running 120 miles an hour……doing a trillion things at a time. 

I know I am not alone in this..I am sure lots of you are in the same boat. And then, when life happens and you run into a wall made out of heavy rain so your planned update fibre is not dry yet…what do you do? You laugh it off, don’t even panic, put on your pink tutu and make something fluffy happening. This was me in the last three days….and yes, I laugh at me all the time. In a good

I feel like I am in this comedy most of the time, maybe it’s a total lack of sleep because I am so preoccupied at night to participate in the inktober challenge ! 
This is me! This is who I am..This is who I have been all my life. When I was asked what I wanted to be when I was a very young kid.. I did not say pilot or doctor…I said I want to be a renaissance person like Leonardo Da Vinci. I want to draw and paint and invent things and make music and study medicine and ..and..and…yeah I did not think of spinning or dyeing yarn then, but there ya go! Lol I wanted to do all the things!

Doing all the things has a drawback. It means you are in desperate need of either more time, or hands or everything ! Lucky I have am understanding partner and a bottomless sense of humour.

So, second week of inktober ! Yeah ! Every day you receive a prompt, as a kind of a hint of inspiration to draw and ink something. Here are the second seven days. Not too bad since last year I didn’t even have the energy or inspiration to start at all and the years before I only lasted about 10 days ! LOL 

It’s pretty hard to keep it up every day, but I will do my best to keep it up ! As usual I want to have a bunny in each of the drawings …lol no surprise there….

You can see what I am up to next on my Instagram page..just look up @ixchelbunny. I would love to see you following my adventures there.

We do daily post office runs (if necessary). The recent AusPost changes to parcel pickups from businesses therefore does not apply to us because WE deliver your parcel directly to our nearest AusPost hub.
Seeing that there are currently lots of Covid cases, especially in NSW and in lesser extent in VIC, there can be some AusPost sorting centres that do not have enough staff so there will be delays in getting the parcel to you. As soon as your parcel is shipped you will receive an automatic email from AusPost with the tracking number so you can see where your parcel is and the approximate ETA. Please be patient during these pandemic times. We do our utmost to keep everything running smoothly on our end and if you have any questions: please do not hesitate to ask. Always happy to help!
