I've Got My Eye On You!

I bit the bullet and tried a new eye technique on a poppet! Well, actually it is a modified poppet, but I still use that pattern as my base! I just love how they came out! So realistic looking. The eyes looks uper creepy laying on my desk too. This doll will be going to a new home soon. She's for the IYP. Hope this makes you squirm with delight I Sew Cute!

Feeling Foxy

I don't normally condone putting pics of myself anywhere. I've never really liked pics of me, but this one makes me happy! I couldn't waste a good hair and make up day! I'm sporting my new glasses that I only have to wear sometimes. New red lips as well. I was always too shy to wear the red lipstick, but now I can rock it! Just a little snippet of me.

I did get more things added back into the dungeon today as well. I also finished up the skirt to go around my art desk yesterday. I'll have a pic of that after I get my desk back in order. Tomorrow night is creating time. Hubby works until midnight. I get off work at 4 which is when he goes to work so I plan on spending time from 4-7 crafting for the IYP. I have to play darts tomorrow night, but I can do a lot in a good 3 hours!

Things are returning to the room! Mom came over today and helped me fold and sort all my fabric! We set it on the shelf for now, but I'll be getting clear totes with locking handles like you can see on the top shelf there to put it in. I should be able to put 2 or 3 colors per tote. It will make it so much easier to find! Now to return all the other stuff to my desk area! I also have bias tape and lace to sort through! I think I may take a break from the loading of the room tomorrow to actually create something!

Things are moving back in! It is a slow process, but well worth it. I'm starting with all the totes of decorations and such that belong on the large shelf. Once that is done I'll start bringing back in the crafty goodness and sorting and organizing as I go. Aaron put up a new light fixture today! Right over my new sewing table! It is so fantastically bright down there! I'm calling it quits for tonight, but I'll be back at it early in the morning. If I work really hard I can have a sewing machine up tomorrow to make the "skirt" for my art desk. It will hide those bins with drawers you can see that are under the desk. I also have to hang up the inchie display that are setting on top of my desk. Lots of finishing touches, but I should be back to full crafting mode in a couple of days!

Dungeon Day 9

I finished painting the floor today! No pic because I can't get over to the other side of the room to turn the lights on and without lights it wouldn't be much of a picture! You'll just have to take my word for it! I had planned on starting to move things back in tomorrow, but I think I may end up working. This weekend thought I should be fully settled in my new space! That makes me truly happy!

Dungeon Day 8

Half the floor!
Originally uploaded by AlwaysInspired
This morning Aaron helped me move all the shelving to one side of the room. I got busy with the paint and did the half concrete wall and half of the floor! I worked myself right onto the bottom shelf of the green shelf that you can see in the pic! Now for it to dry enough so I can walk on it to turn off 2 of the lights! I must run to the store tomorrow to get another can of floor paint and then I can move furniture back and do the other half! I'm in the home stretch!

Orange is finished!

The orange is done! All the walls are painted now except the portion of the concrete one. If you look to the left the top of the concrete ledge is painted the gray that the floor will be. Now to finish the concrete wall and the floor! I can start loading it back up after that! I'm so excited! I need my space back!

Dungeon Day 6

Purple is done!
Originally uploaded by AlwaysInspired
The purple is done! I'm really loving how the colors go together. It has made it so bright and cheery down there! You can't help but smile when you walk into the room. I can't wait to get it all done and get my stuff back in there! I did the 1st coat of orange today as well, but it wasn't dry enough to do the 2nd coat before I took the pic so I'll save that for tomorrow. Tomorrow I hope to get the 2nd coat of orange done and paint that bottom concrete portion of the purple wall with the concrete paint, which is gray. The floor will be that color as well. It will seal the concrete and make it easier to clean.

Dungeon Day 5

Color! I'm so excited! I painted the ceiling white today. Everything that needs to be green is now green as well! I love how it is coming out. I know the other colors and the gray of the floor will tone down the green a bit, but I love it just the same. Tomorrow I hope to get the other 2 colors on and start preping the floor. More pics tomorrow!
