D.I.Y. Rock Star Rewind: Holiday Packed Up 🎄 (February 2022)

Early along in this frustrating journey….

— Okay, so I was at the point in this process where I WASN'T going to accept “No” for an answer from a device that is SUPPOSED to serve ME! I decided that I could get what I wanted out of this printer! —And SOONER than later! —So, I fucking saved the documents as PDFs onto a fucking jump drive and inserted that motherfucker DIRECTLY into the printer! 💥🤷🏽‍♀️ It HAD to be done! 🙌🏾

Join the Street Team!


—That’s the way I get sometimes, so THAT’S why I can TOTALLY relate to that episode of the “Elise Gets Crafty” podcast when she talks about how she goes nutty at the beginning of a big, new craft project, but that finally, she wipes away her tears and fears and her overthinking and starts to just fucking DO the thing. That the process begins to reveal itself AS she is moving through it. And that, EVEN if it DOESN’T work, AT LEAST she is not just visualizing it anymore; she knows for sure and can move the fuck on! 🤷🏽‍♀️ That’s where I am today. I have spent a good week visualizing the Starter Pack-making process, but hadn’t executed anything. Then, we wake up on Friday, and instead of one Starter Pack ( ) to get our, we’ve got TWO! 😳🤷🏽‍♀️ —But THAT'S a “good” problem to have—one that we REALLY want—because it shows that folks are vibing with the music and the look of the band and want more, so we’re happy about that. 🥳🙌🏾 My problem was that our fucking printer chose this very moment to give us fucking grief again! 😳🙄🤷🏽‍♀️ —No, this isn’t the FIRST time it’s done this; but since the last time was probably more than six months ago, I fucking don’t remember what the fuck the solution to this problem was—a solution, mind you, that take a hell of a lot of trial and error (which included buying 3 other printers that DIDN’T work! and had to be taken back) to solve! 😳 —Yes, that shit was traumatizing, which is probably why, once it seemed as if we had solved the problem, I put ALL the shit that it took to get the printer working again out of my mind and just tried to move on! 🤷🏽‍♀️ —So, to see that the problem is back RIGHT at the moment of needing to check getting these Starter Packs checked off my list was SUPER important, so at least I can say that it’s ALMOST complete; even if I DIDN'T solve the problem for real. 🤷🏽‍♀️🙌🏾 RIGHT about now, I will settle for this win. I just fucking needed a win this morning! 🙄🤷🏽‍♀️🙌🏾 After a week of feeling blown by the breeze and not fully in control of ANYTHING, including my OWN time, I just needed SOMETHING to go right.

Blogmas 2021 Big-ass blog post:


—- Ultimately, I am happy to say that I found my joy and tampered my expectations for it all. –After all, I am a recovering perfectionist….. –So, I am done with the entire ornament-making and mailing process and am ready for the next challenge that I have set for myself—which is some kind of Valentine’s Day snail mailing for our new record stores, fans, and music influencers.

We hope your Christmas was merry despite any changes due to Covid.


—-Christmas has been taken down around here, which gets us in the mindset to look forward. We are going to be sharing our 2022 goals soon (in a podcast episode and in a blog post) and we will FINALLY be pulling back the curtains on the artist mentoring program that we’ve been a part of for the last quarter of this year. —We didn’t want to start TOO much TOO soon, because we wanted to grasp more of it ourselves first. —We are finally ready to share some pros and cons, some of the results, and whether or not we are suggesting something like this for others, so if that’s something that you’re curious about, you’ll want to stay plugged in for that.
