Sorry for the delay in posting! If you can believe it, we had another big storm that fried our router, modem, AND printer…AGAIN! What a headache. Fortunately, I’ve kept myself very busy with several little projects. Unfortunately, there are so many projects that splitting my time between all of them means taking longer to actually get them completed. I’ve decided to make this little visual to do list to keep myself on track (and also prove that I’m really not slacking off).
1. Archon Secret Compartment Book
I love this little wooden book/box so much, and once I found the letters and wooden sheep, I decided it would be handy dandy for Mister to have it around for his fraternity pledging. Took me forever to figure out that it actually opens near the spine and has a nifty compartment inside. Planning on attaching the sheep and letters soon and also painting some more book-like script along the spine and back.
2. Lizard Embroidery (for Salamander Room)
Mister’s new bedroom when he moves down here is going to be designed around his favorite children’s book (The Salamander Room). Yes, I have till December to get everything ready…but it’s obvious that I take forever to get anything accomplished, so for now I’m getting an early start. I want to do a few framed embroidery animal pieces, and this is just the first one.
3. Salamander Room Painting
For the same room as I mentioned before, I’m doing a painting of one of the illustrations from The Salamander Room. Kind of feeling blah about it, so putting it aside until I feel more driven to paint.
4. Picture Frame (Salamander Room)
Still tossing around ideas for this one. Want to do a really decorative matte around my favorite pic of Mister in all his childhood glory. Hope for some inspiration to strike soon.
5. Journal Pages
I was doodling around in my journal, hoping that something would come of it, and this is what flowed from my pencil. It’s still not complete, but I’m not sure where I want to go from here or how I want to color it.
6. Art Tag Tree
I ordered this lovely set of art tags off of Etsy so that Mister and I could get a start on our Christmas tree. We want to do a whole tree of tags of our own art to relate to us. So far I haven’t really had a chance to start on any of the ones I’ve had planned.
7. Granny Square Afghan
This one has been ongoing for awhile, and Mister is still learning to do the granny squares. Eventually (hopefully sooner rather than later), we’ll have a blanket.
