    Randomness XIV: THE FLOOR IS LAVA!

    Doesn't everyone in the frigid tundra sleep in igloos? (I actually had someone ask me that once. )

    29819 (Twilight Purple) & 29820 (Gem Purple)

    The swatches aren't always accurate. Honestly, that statement can be said of pretty much any product on the internet that is sold in a color.

    29819 (Twilight Purple) & 29820 (Gem Purple)

    Just checked mine and they look *almost * identical. Gem Purple is a tiny bit lighter. It's entirely possible that they thin differently, I don't have time to test them.

    It's entirely possible that something else is actually going on behind the scenes. Schools here have started having short days on Wednesdays but staff are supposed to do meetings and professional development those afternoons. With the staff all busy, all after school activities are moved to different days. I'm not generally a huge fan of it, but it does leave a predictable window for parents to plan things. We're going to start a study group Wednesday afternoons for teen daughter's friends who are learning Japanese. Give them a chance to practice with each other and then have some fun watching anime or whatever. And I can have them all home in time for dinner! Madness!

    They've started going one step further here, I'm getting what looks like calls from random people in my area because Caller ID is showing both a person's name and a number. Different name and number each time. Somehow they're still always calling about my student loans, though. Seeing as how they've been paid off for over 10 years, I'm doubting their veracity. I just don't pick up if it's not a person I actually know. Answering machines exist for a reason.

    You and I have a similar number of the original Happy Seppuku stamps. I also have a ton of the newer rubber ones. I'm really not terribly happy with their forest one, though. Forest is the only Basius I'm keen to get, it will save me from having to buy lots of resin tree stumps and/or fallen logs.

    Aradia Miniatures - The Divine Comedy: Dante's Inferno II

    I looked at it, but it was just too pricey for me. I may get one at retail some day, but my focus really isn't on display pieces at the moment.

    I pulled up Basius 2.5 (which I think is when they introduced the double-sided stamps) and one stamp was 25 GBP back in 2015. The last kickstarter they ran (which I completely missed even hearing about ) had smaller stamps, which I would honestly prefer for most of their themes. Super, super frustrating that I can't get info on how to get them at retail. I am still getting the forest one, since it's the one I keep wishing I had.

    Yes. You have accurately summed up why I've never backed in the past. But every once in a while I think to myself that I would love to get that super detailed forest one, except that I can never find them outside Kickstarter. So this time, since I have $50 of birthday money in my pocket I'm getting one. I've also seen better close up pics, and the detail level is much crisper and more realistic than Happy Seppuku, especially when you're comparing forest stamps. It's one of those "you get what you pay for" situations. I still love my Happy Seppuku stamps, but more for stone, planks and basic textures.

    From the Kickstarter page: The Basius Max collection is a DOUBLE SIDED series of large solid purple resin pads, full of jaw-dropping hand-sculpted negatively recessed texture https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/984996675/basius-max?ref=friends_launched Basius stamps are one of the most talked about hobby tools that I've never tried, mainly because they never seem to make it to retail. This time I'm not letting frugality get in the way of awesome bases!

    Honey Lavender Ice Cream

    Might have seen something like it out by the lavender farms in the Olympic Peninsula. But it doesn't sound too hard to try and replicate, so I might give it a try. I saw someone on that British baking show make a cake flavored with lavender, honey and lemon, which I could also try as ice cream. It sounds delicious.

    Athena: FeR bust

    I especially love how you have painted her gaze off to the side, like she's got her eye on someone. A little more life and authority versus the box art's dreamy half-lidded look.

    Wait, they're gone?? All of them? I hadn't heard about the one near me closing, they've even still got upcoming events on their FB page. I loved their jewelry making section, it was one of the best I've found.

    As long as you like dark chocolate, the sugar argument shouldn't be a big deal anyway. If you're eating chocolate covered marshmallows then it becomes a different story.

    I was going to suggest that, but you beat me to it! I should probably get a pair as well. I'm also a huge fan of using proper cutting mats, that way you can aim the blade at the table for really tough bits.
