Sooooo, what's been going on in The Cave lately?
I tie dyed some sheets for Coworker ML who moved back to the PacNW. She likes octopussessessesss, and the color turquoise, so I ran with that theme.
|Fitted sheet. The rings look like suckers or fossil coral or droplets falling into water. It's damn near impossible to photograph a fitted sheet without a mattress.|
|Sucker rings on the top sheet.|
|Sucker rings on the bottom of the pillowcase, fish bones on the top.|
|Oh, shit, no, that's creepy as hell. It's District 9 meets Lovecraft. Good execution, though. Awful design.|
|Well, it's slightly less creepy. Execution isn't as good, though. Looks like an alien with a fancy fancy beard. I gave this to her so she can make a throw pillow if she's feeling wacky.|
|Third time's the charm. Nailed it! The heart on the forehead is totally intentional, by the way. >flexing<|
|Looks super cute wrapped, too. The tentacles hug the present. Awwww. And yes, she cried when I gave this to her.|
What else? It's been Home Improvement week in The Cave.
|Got my dining set out of my tiny tiny kitchen and into my dining room.|
|Decided that the upholstery on the chairs was beyond awful, and the metal frames needed a paint job, so Mom took them apart. I'm on wire-brush-and-paint duty.|
|Yes, I am ABSOLUTELY going to reupholster my dining chairs with this gloriously obnoxious fabric. It matches EVERYTHING in my house. EVERYTHING.|
|Including my front door. Still needs a few more coats to be even, and to have the blue tape peeled off the glass and hardware. But still. Behr's "Delicious Berry." Not bad, eh?|
Lessee, what else?
|Got mah hurr did.|
|Made Spectra pretty for the holidays.|
|Designed a logo for my experimental camp for 7th and 8th graders this summer.|
|Kissed Kevin for a promotional email at work. Kevin is the lizard. Kevin is a girl. Kevin was not amused.|
|Gave offerings to Geraldine the Destroyer, Eater of Parsley...|
|...and her minion, ManMan.|
I've actually been in a pretty good mood. Way less stressed out and anxious. Could it be because I have breathing room? Could it be that my life is not a chaotic mess anymore?
|Could it be that I have a fleece penguin outfit that I've been wearing pretty much constantly when I'm not at work? IF I DON'T GO TO WORK I NEVER HAVE TO CHANGE OUT OF IT AHAHAHAHAHAAA|
