I went to the doctor today, just a simple visit to get a refill on a prescription. She did the usual checkup things: blood pressure, temperature...and weight. I've gained ten pounds in the last three months! Normally, I don't worry about my weight. I've never been a skinny person and I like my curves, so a little fat never bothered me. But gaining so much in such a short time worries me.

I have to stop snacking so much. If there's junk food in the house, I'll eat it. Sometimes I feel like I have no willpower over my eating habits.

And I need to start exercising. Not a lot, just moving more than I do now. On the way home today I stopped at Target and bought a jump rope. I think I'll start jumping rope and taking a long walk every day.

I love being a curvy girl, but I really don't want to gain any more weight. I like were I am right now...

New painting and updates

I've been really busy for the last couple of weeks, trying to get things ready for Fantasci, a local sci-fi convention here in Virginia. I'll be there selling my plushes and dolls, as well as original art pieces and prints. I'll post more about the convention in a couple of days, until then, here's my latest painting: a retro robot, with the brain of a British gentleman!

Another commission finished!

I recently finished a huge commissioned plush for a huge Star Wars fan! It's a three foot tall tauntaun, named Greeata. She's very soft and cuddly :)
