Hi everyone out there!

I can't believe it's already August! I have a few new things to update you all with so I thought I'd get it out there :D

Metrocon went fantastically ^0^ I had a great time seeing fans and fellow artists at the con. Even though I didn't have as much stock as I usually do, it was amazing getting to see your reactions to my creations. I hope I can outdo myself next year!

To my chagrin, I haven't been as active art-wise this year as I wished to be, but it's all been for good cause, I swear! Since late last year I've been writing several books for my publisher, Fox Chapel Publishing. I told you all about Bling it Up! already, but I have quite a few more coming out in the next few months, so I'll let you know about them in the future :D With most of that out of the way, I'm now focusing on getting my blog to look less vacant too. I hope to be back with more posts about crazy new things I've made in the coming weeks!

The next update I have is about my next kiriban celebration! Thanks to you guys, I'm really close to a nice pageview milestone :D Once I hit it I'll be holding another giveaway for another crazy item like the one I held 2 months ago. Here's what the figures look like:

90% progress bar - star blue by AngelLale87 DeviantArt pageviews: 115,666/123,456 = 94%
90% progress bar - star blue by AngelLale87 DeviantArt watchers: 4,286/5,000 = 86%
75% progress bar - purple by AngelLale87 Facebook likes: 1,405/2,000 = 70%
75% progress bar - purple by AngelLale87 Tumblr followers: 752/1,000 = 75%
60% progress bar - purple by AngelLale87 Wordpress followers: 1,288/2,000 = 64%

And the last update I have concerns the Monthly Crafting Challenge I've got going on at my blog. If you sign up for email updates to my blog during this month, I'll send a free sewing pattern your way, namely this little guy:

Square Watermelon Plush and Basket by ShoriAmeshiko

You can also earn patterns by sending me photos of your finished creations. So if you're interested in cute plush patterns I hope you'll give it a try! For August it's this little square watermelon plush with matching basket.

Hopefully if nothing else gets in my way you'll be seeing more updates from me soon! >w<

I hope to offer up a new batch of custom aviator caps as soon as I'm able! When I do, what new suede color should I make available? ^-^

Aw ; n; Well I will for sure keep an eye on your products. You have such unique ideas and I love your work, and will possibly bulk buy little trinket plushies as gifts for friends when you have more aviators available. So please keep me in mind if you decide to produce again. I would also pay extra for custom designs if that's possible, and if there's anything you could need help with don't be afraid to ask the community, me included. I just want to see your stuff catch on. It shows tons of promise and possibilities.

Hello, I finally got my custom grey aviator cap comission (the postal "service" in my town is a living nightmare ^^; ) and I'm really in love with it! Can't wait for winter to be able to wear it, haha ^^

You have a great body of work! I love your caps. I downloaded some of the illustrator patterns but I am still a beginner, so I don't know what will really come of them. If I came across them in a sewing store they'd be instant quilt material.
