One of the things I’m REALLY excited for in our new house is an eventual home for MY crafting things. My sewing machine will not be in danger of small hands, and small hands won’t be in danger from my sewing machine. I can leave a project out between crafting sessions without fear that it will be destroyed before I get back to it. I can lock out kids, cats and dogs! I am REALLY excited. My crafts have been without a place for over three years. When we listed the condo for sale, we made the upstairs office solely Ace’s office for his psychotic assortment of computer gear, which was a good idea, but it left my things without a safe place. Even though I could store craft supplies there, there was no place to actually craft. Not to mention the background noise of war games isn’t terribly conducive to zen and peaceful crafting (or honestly, it drowns out my cursing when I poke my finger with a pin or otherwise screw something up.)
BUT, with my crafting items safe, I can get back to crafting and listing those things on Etsy. I’ve had these 18″ doll poodle skirts made and ready to be listed since last…erm…April? But I just managed to list them tonight (with pretty bad pictures, but in all the upheaval, I can’t set up the photo area, but I’d love to get them sold and out of my house, so bad pictures it is.)
After I find my Velcro, I have a bunch of doll/stuffed animal capes to list:
I made T4 one of these, back when he was T2 and he was SCARED of it, on account of all the flames. He’d tell me it was HOT HOT, and he’d start blowing on it. I felt horrible both for making him something he was scared of (he’s moved on and is no longer scared of it) and because his reaction was so intense it was funny. Poor kid.
Mr. Elf had a nice chance to relax in Barbie’s pool, so now he’s off rock climbing up our fireplace. You’d think he would be smart enough to have safety harness on, but that Elf, he just throws caution to the wind!
