Hey everyone! So I have some updates, a rant, and prolly more ranting. First things first, we did our first live show in almost 2 years! It was thrilling! The Mountain Arts and Music Festival was a hit here in Huntsville Utah. Outdoors, fully vaccinated, fully stocked!
Next show for us will be Ogden Pride on August 1st, which we were invited too and are SO HONORED! Stocking up on those rainbow star tea towels for sure!
We will also be showing at Craft Lake City August 13th, 14th and 15th. Again we are so thrilled to be part of Utahs largest craft show.
We also ended our second ever Kickstarter, and were quite successful! I am so happy you all love the Snackasaurs as much as I do, and with MORE snackasaur enamel pins on the way I couldn't be happier. But Kickstarter isn't releasing the funds to me. For days I was trying to find out why, and no one would respond until i started a twitter campaign calling them out. Apparently my bank account isnt acceptable and neither is my husbands because thats not in my name... so what happens now? I guess I have to wait and see. Meanwhile I am still ordering out of pocket and shipping pins as they arrive to all the donors, then they will be available for sale! I am for sure done with kickstarter though, shady shady shady (and have a long history of anti woman campaigns being promoted)
Second rant, social media sucks. the end. Wait... Yeah we all know. Between the Amazon sellers stealing my art (over 100 vendors now woot), Kickstarter being shady, Instagram now being TikTock, TikTock being RACIST AF, and Facebook being a money pit, I'm... kind of over all of it. I'm tired of algorithms and trends and generally just exhausted. I have all but abandoned my UntidyVenus accounts because its demoralizing just trying to BE SEEN. And my sucess at live in person events shows people LIKE my stuff, but I'm not 25, I'm not skinny, or marketable, or whatever else is happening and so therefore not INTERESTING to the over consumption world. So I am going to stop fighting it. I'm am going to attept to just blog, and post when I want and when I can. So most likely this will become my pet project. Art, food, packing and styling tips because thats something that I have become interested in. Prolly some gear reviews too because I LOVE GEAR. So hope you all enjoy
