As you saw in yesterday’s Tattoosday, we spent our weekend at the Portland Tattoo Expo! We had a really good time, brought home some new artwork, and even an award for my thigh tattoo! We’re looking forward to seeing everyone again at the Evergreen Tattoo Invitational next spring!
And speaking of spring.. our weather has been a little bit crazy and we’re still getting some fairly nice days. My garden is still producing tomatoes, beets, and red onions…and of course itsy bitsy spiders like this guy!
If you follow me on Instagram then you might have seen my update about our little deck dweller, Mokiki. He went from skittish and skinny to a plump and loving kitty in just a few months. We’ll be taking him into the vet in about a week or two to get the green light to bring him inside. We’ve been slowly introducing him and Punk to one another and I’m sure there will be a few scuffles, but we’re confident they’ll become buddies!
You might have noticed that I haven’t been posting as frequently as I used to (partially Punk’s fault for using my laptop as her bed!) and it’s because life got a whole lot busier over the last few weeks! In addition to Tattooed Martha and the freelance blog work that I do, I just picked up two more part time jobs so we have plenty of dough (the green kind!) rolling in for the holiday season. Not to burst the bubbles of future bloggers, but it’s not as easy as it may look to earn revenue from your posts. It can take a long time before you see any payoff from all the hard work you do and unfortunately I’m tired of waiting around, so I’m staying proactive in the meantime.
What does that mean for Tattooed Martha? Don’t worry.. I’m not going anywhere! I just might not be able to do as many posts as I like right now. I know that even though the work I’m doing will take me away from the blog temporarily, those ventures will help fund future projects and where I ultimately want to take my business in the future.
I’ll have a brand new cocktail for you all to try on Friday and a creepy cupcake recipe on Sunday.. just in time for your Halloween parties!
Thank you all for being tremendously supportive and encouraging through all the ups, downs, and changes in my blog as well as my life! Have a great rest of the week!
