A Little FairyTale
I don't know what it is about Myths and Legends Con that brings on a massive creative spurt, but this year I again found myself madly sewing in the weeks leading up to the event. It really started with the custom corset by  LoriAnn Costume Designs .  When I...

always more lighting
I got my pot lights hooked up! I'm a little disappointed, actually.  They're not as bright as I hoped, and so the kitchen has a soft, deserted, late night feel. The photo, of course, doesn't show this. Here's a reminder of what it looks like on the other si...

Insanely large bedspread
I haven't done a lot of crochet this past year, and it's all the fault of an afghan. I get much colder at night than B., so I have a throw for my side of the bed.  It's a basic no-sew, fringed and tied end fleece blanket that I've had for ages.  It went muc...

Christmas Ornament Cards
 December was always my favorite mail sorting time of year at work, because of all the beautiful and unique cards that came in, often from all over the world.   Several stood out to me in particular for their reusable qualities.  The best was a card that ha...

Kitchen Cabinet Update #6 - more on pulls and finishing up
Surprisingly, I found what I needed for the cabinet doors at Michael's. Check out these fancy head pins!  They were a little over 3mm wide at the tip.  And really hard to photograph.   And also awkwardly shaped.  Some were round, some were oval.  Not sure w...

Steampunk Leadville 2015
I'm not sure how I found out about this , but probably a random Internet search for local Steampunk events.  It was in a town we were interested in visiting, on our anniversary, and Steampunk themed.  We mutually agreed to do it. My outfit is still pretty b...

Kitchen Faucet!
Remember that disappointingly small kitchen faucet I bought from miniatures.com? I searched for a ridiculously long amount of time for a replacement.  I even scoured Shapeways.com  in the hopes that I could possibly get one 3D printed.  I even downloaded Sk...

Willowcrest - kitchen lighting
Where did she go? What happened?  Did she give up? No, she got a job, and has been desperately playing real life catch-up. But it was raining, and raining, and raining, and my motivation wavered horribly.  I sent a whiny email to The Camp about not having t...

Wait, what happened to the rest of January?
Well, didn't that month just fly by!  Things got a little crazy, and very little crafting got done.  Why? We attacked the kitchen.  It was time. Here's the kitchen from the online listing, right before we moved in. Before! The island didn't stand a chance. ...

We were very lucky that the island was added AFTER the entire floor had been tiled, and that it wasn't square so we could simply turn it to solve our problem.  A rolling island wouldn't have been too useful here, as this is the entire kitchen and there's really nowhere else to roll it TO unless I want to shove it closer to the window.

Microwave update, at least
The microwave isn't done yet.  Still need to smooth out the handle, attach the front, attach the control panel, and make a vent for underneath, and decide if I want a turntable inside, and what to make it out of, if I do.     I had issues finding a good ima...

Kitchen Cabinet Update #5 - are you sick of these yet?
After painting the doors, I decided to try a little antiquing.  Wipe on, wipe off FAST, and hope you got all the crevices highlighted. Messy, very messy. It turned out a bit darker than I would like, and I once again made the mistake of thinking, 'oh, it lo...
