My HGTV Handmade Journal Segment

I know that I’m early for #TBT but I’ve been working on my media kit and pulling all of my old press together. I taped this almost a year after Sebastian was born. πŸ˜‚

….Meanwhile in AfroPuff’s WorkShop..

Ive been meaning to post my some of my creative activities for a while. Where do I begin.

  1. Im prepping for my first workshop offerings. Still trying to find the perfect location. I made up all of these clip art sheets and paper cuttings for a PaperCrafting workshop. I wanna do like a tea/wine/create party situation. Might have to ditch the wine if I use a parks and recreation facility tho.
  2. Im prepping my new zines. I know that I should do one at a time but when have I ever done something the easy way?
  3. Im making up as much merch as I possibly can. After my hellish past 6 months with water damage, Im putting the shop back together as soon a humanly possible so that I can get back to full production.
  4. Since I can’t find a damn job(its never been this hard for me to find one before) I decided to just lean the fuck in and explore more avenues that I haven’t utilized yet like building Patreon campaigns. Ive been checking out other artists campaigns and how they structure them. I figure that I can do presales, and such by offering pretty cool incentives like coloring pages and prints…..maybe mini paintings. But in the meantime, Thank God for my Customers for holding me down. ❀

On a sadder note my dear friend Melanie Hadley passed away late last month. A lot of you new her from her company New Hood Order. We would vend a lot together and as the spring and summer seasons near, Im just devastated by the loss. What makes it worse is that I can’t get any info on her passing or final arrangements which is odd as fuck. Her family hasn’t made any announcements and her other friends know about as much as I do. Such a damn shame but you know how families are. She was such a beautiful and kind person, she deserved better. Melanie will be sadly missed. <Sigh> And then there was Nipsey Hu$$le 😦 Dude with all of this grief going on thank God that I splurged on a new beautiful banjolele. My new purple bae. Ya’ll might even be able to get a live show out of me some time soon.Β 2019-03-28 13.24.32Β Isn’t she lovely? She’s such a loud little barker with a very bright sound.

Lastly, Ive been relentlessly seeing All these Damn Angel numbers! Da Hell is going on with that? 10:10, 12:12, 222, 11:11 Lawd Have Mercy!

Well thats it for now. Check out my online shop for all my latest offerings. Here

Peace out Fam. Live Life Well. It goes quicker than you think.
