For one, and the biggest time issue, is I am modeling again after an almost 20 year break.
While this does take time away from my crafts, I am having a lot of fun. While I would not turn down a commercial (read: paid) shoot, I am having fun doing a lot of artsy stuff.
Here's an example:

When we were doing this shoot yesterday, I saw this clump of bushes, with a ground level tunnel leading to it, and thought, "That's where wood nymphs play hide and seek." So I crawled in, and told Elderjarl to be quiet so as to do give my hiding spot away.
