HIATUS

Screen Shot 2015-07-01 at 6.03.07 PM

I’m sure dedicated followers of douglust have caught on that my offline life has become a bit chaotic. At the moment, I’m homeless, and working less hours than I expected. Don’t be alarmed, all of my stuff is safely in storage and I will be crashing with friends until I get into my new place later this month.

Due to the fact that my creative supplies are in boxes in my friend’s warehouse, I am unable to keep up-to-date with douglust.com. I promise to use this downtime to focus on my commission, and anyone who is seriously upset by this news can follow me on Instagram. Other than that, I’ll see you on the other side of this adventure, with plenty of stitchy stories to share!

      Thanks. Unfortunately, being homeless is all part of the plan. By couchsurfing I am able to save several hundred dollars in rent. While it stinks not having my stuff to stitch, I’m happy I am not going into debt with this move.

  3. Best of luck with your new place. I hope you manage to get everything sorted 🙂

      Thanks. I’m ecstatic to be moving into an “above ground” apartment, hopefully the joy of a new place will radiate through my pictures.

    Hey, this message is really just for you. No need to actually post it. I just wanted to say that being a threadhead can pay the bills. I am also homeless and disabled, living in my camper van. Recently someone commissioned me to make a large embroidered piece on a “money is no object, do whatever you want” basis. SERIOUSLY, that happened. I’ll post the final pics once I ship it. Be open to magic, is all I’m saying.

    In the process of doing her piece, I was flooded with ideas for how to make money stitching. In your case, I bet people would pay you to stitch up their kids’ drawings. Just an idea!
