IT. IS. HERE. FINALLY. Okay, so as you can see on the picture, I’ve fucked up and the cover image is actually on the back. But I know how to fix this, so pre-order is officially ONNNNN!!!!!!!!!
People who have follow me on tha gram have heard me curse and swear when things went wrong, when I chose the wrong kind of paper, people who’ve seen me IRL in the process of making have heard me curse and swear even more because of all zhe fuck-ups.
Conclusion? I should have asked things. I should’ve have tried to figure it all out myself while there are so many people willing and able to help in my surroundings.
It’s hard though, I’m scared to admit I don’t know stuff for some reason, so this makes asking questions hard. Ridiculous I know. Also, I don’t like to bother people, I don’t like to be a bother And even though lots of people have said I can always come to them for help, I’ve kept on feeling like a bother.
Anyway. Next time, I hope to remember this process, and how much time and money and worries I could’ve saved myself if I’d have just asked.
BUT. The whole technical printing process aside, the actual process of writing and drawing was amazing. I loved every part of it.
Being a maker, making stuff has always come from a place of emotion from me. All the songs I wrote were because I had to express and process my feels, my ceramics started from a place of dealing with body acceptance and self love. And of course, this Tiny Guide came from my recent break-up.
When the break-up happened I went online to search for tools, books, podcasts, blogs on how to deal with all what I was feeling but there just wasn’t really something like that. I’m not saying my guide is all that, but at least I put everything in I did or needed during the break-up. And making the guide helped me a lot in processing all the feels.
I’m really hoping people will use it as a little gift for when friends are going through a break-up. ‘ Cause what can you get your friends when they’re going through such a shit time? I can already imagine it: the tiny guide with a big bar of chocolate and some beautiful flowers.
If you have any questions please ask, and for those that are (pre)ordering it: THANK YOU SO MUCH!
