So I am thoroughly ashamed of myself, but I took pictures to shame myself further… lol
This picture is after I’ve cleaned HALF of the mess up! That table was my computer desk, and yes, there really was a computer on there with all that. The couch was making a barricade for me to pile up against, then we moved the couch and I got to work.
This is the pile that I’ve already moved into the office
And here is what is already half organized in the closet
And here is WHY I decided to tackle my mess… To go from this
I feel like we can’t catch a break here in the Mitten. We went from pushing 80 to pushing 60 in a matter of a day or two. I wasn’t ready to put real shoes back on. lol
I lost two plants the other night in a hard frost, I know, my fault for not covering them.
Now that we’re sans roommate, I’m slowly organizing and moving my craft stuff into the extra closet. I’ll take a few embarrassing photos later today.
Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee! It’s finally Spring here in good ole Michigan! Yesterday it was 72 degrees (Fahrenheit) and didn’t get below 50 last night, and today was in the mid 60s with some light rain. A true spring weekend! I hear it’s supposed to be above 70 tomorrow too!!!
If you couldn’t tell, I may be beside myself with joy. lol
Now, onto a few pics of what’s going on around here…
I bought the two miniature kits below and am working on the dresser first. It will NOT look like that, I’m painting it white for a shabby chic look.
Below is my Ellie with a new faceup and some clay cookies that I made
Just a quick post, I’m excited that spring is finally upon us poor souls in Michigan!!!
There was a pretty good thunderstorm last night, and like magic, the grass is green today and flowers are starting to poke their sleepy heads from the soil.
My boss was joking that she may have to build an ark to get to work, but I’m excited for more earth-healing rain!
Very soon I’m going to try my hand at miniatures and doll houses, we’re in the home stretch till we have a free room to become the office! I can’t remember if I posted after my roommate rant that the Hubs gave the roommate until the end of April to move out.
At some point today, if the rain lets up a little, I’ll take some photos and share my spring bliss with you!
So I may or may not be going tag crazy… =)
Over the next week or so I will be adding a lot of die cut tags. There are already a few available, and if you feel you would like a different size or color, or even a shape I don’t offer yet, please let me know through etsy’s message system. (You can get with me many, many other ways, but that will be the easiest to keep track of)
I also got my glittery little hands on some discounted washi tape that I wanted to pass along! Right now you can purchase a set of two washi tapes for $5 and free shipping! Pick from 4 designs… http://www.etsy.com/listing/126893190
So that little adventure I told you about? I finally got around to uploading the pictures! Remember, these birds really are as close as you think they are! The one chickadee almost landed on my head!
Wow, it’s been a while, hasn’t it? I’ve missed you. In this little hiatus, I’ve turned 27, obtained a second job, and bought another ball jointed doll. I sold one, and sold another’s head. I feel a little awful about a headless doll sitting next to my sewing machine, but someone wanted badly to buy the head for a body they already had. Who was I to say no? =)
My next crafty endeavor (well, one of a few) is to create an extravagant ball gown for that headless body. A challenge was issued on a facebook page I frequent, and well, I’m picturing dark blue taffeta in waves with a peacock feather beaded on the bodice. I may be a little nuts, but at least it’s doll sized, not human sized. You’re talking to the illusions of grandeur dreamer that was thinking she would make herself a ball gown for prom with grandma’s sewing machine. I still have all that green material sitting in a cedar chest and a chuckle in my heart over that one. The doll dress? Doable.
I’m in a bit of a fit over spring taking its time getting here. The weather was so nice over the weekend, and now we have 35 degrees and flurries. I could almost cry.
OH! This next Saturday I will be attending an all day craft day with my cousin. My trusty Viking Rose is coming along with and a mountain of projects that need to be sewn. I’ll take the opportunity of peace and workspace!
Sorry for such a long post, but I have a lot on the brain!
We’re struggling with the roommate that has lived with us longer than I have. My husband purchased our condo in 2009 and we decided to let the roommate move in immediately. He was in a bad situation, and I agreed for a temporary housing. In 2010 my husband and I married, and our roommate didn’t bat an eyelash. It’s now 2013 and it is becoming increasingly difficult to live with this human being. He is dirty, he smells, won’t clean up after himself but asserts that he does, and has recently voiced his opinion on my lack of housekeeping skills. I almost kicked him out right then and there. I don’t keep very good house because I work two jobs and well, what’s the point when five minutes later a slob comes behind you and makes a worse mess than was there when you cleaned?!?! He is also extremely negative and has made an avid hobby of complaining and why me-ing. He is quite adept. It is to the point where I don’t want to sit in my own living room because there he is, lying on his couch with his shirt exposing rotund belly, smelling like unwashed unmentionables and clearing his throat with a sound that can only be described as dry heaving. *sigh* I’m sorry, my rant is over now.
Oh, and I had a mini adventure at Kensington Metro Park! I was stalked by Chickadees, and then greeted quite warmly by a large Sandhill Crane. He went for my wedding ring til he realized it wasn’t food! I’ll have to edit those pics and post!!
