    Randomness XIV: THE FLOOR IS LAVA!

    Ooo. What island? We went to Maui a few years back, albeit in the summer, and it was amazing. Of course I'm sure it's amazing no matter what time of year. I seem to have more trouble with the mail carriers than the criminals. In the 7 years living here we've had one break in into our mailbox but numerous issues with personnel. This would be a great topic. I was always interesting in painting. My mom painted way back before I was born and I found her figures once and they were beautiful. What really got me started though was the death of my dad. It was and still is a great way to escape from grief and other brain weasels. However, in a way it helps me process said grief in some sort of way. I'm sad I missed out on him. I had him in my cart then realized we couldn't make an order until this week so I had to take him out. ETA: Speaking of starting topics, has anyone ever brought up the idea for a NSFW section for show offs? I know there are a lot of beautiful minis that are NSFW but still tasteful and would love to see other forumites takes on them.
  2. Generally no more than an hour of drive time. Beyond that I get stir crazy and anxious since I don't drive.

    Happy Birthday SisterMaryNapalm

    Happy birthday, hope it's a good one!
  4. I started a second first giant queen recently. I've done a fair amount of work on her so far but still have a long way to go.

    Attempted scar. It has been deemed too subtle. Back to the drawing board.

    Randomness XIV: THE FLOOR IS LAVA!

    Tons of adulting to do today. I'm ready for a nap and we haven't even started, Husband is currently taking a nap. Need to: Go close out account at old credit union. Pick up Husband's new glasses. Get some shopping done. Go to pharmacy. I am in a "I don't wanna leave the house" mood today. Much stronger than usual today.
  8. I started using Deep Red 9002 for a dress I'm painting. It's a lovely color. I've got a ton of new paints to try. I bought about 20 last month in a Black Friday sale at the FLGS. Mostly Bones paints but also grabbed a couple of Heavy Gear paints that they had in stock.

    I am still looking for something. That'd be great! Started back up today after I was struck by illness briefly. Need to do major touch ups. Here's updated photos.
  10. So far it's been an uneventful weekend. I've been sick so not much seems funny currently.
  11. Mid-month update: I went on vacation to see family so I lost a week of work time. I've /finally/ picked back up on the Frost Giant Queen today. And that's all I've done.

    I'm back to this! I need to do my best to finish quickly but with good quality. I am 4 followers away from my goal of 1000 to give it away! I've got a few progress photos to post that I didn't do previously. This is my main priority until it is finished.
  13. Got my Reaper order while I was gone so I got to open it today. The only thing not pictured is Stark Naked(paint). Also got some metallic markers that I bought on a whim as an Amazon lightning sale.

    Randomness XIV: THE FLOOR IS LAVA!

    Leaving today, back to Washington State for me. It's been a nice visit but I'm ready to be home with my cat and bed. Only a few hours until we leave then a 6 hour plane ride. Hoping to not get stick with a kid behind us again. I was napping peacefully in the way here until I was violently kicked in the back.
  15. Went to the Smithsonian Air and Space museum (in WA. D.C.) yesterday. Picked up a couple shot glasses and a bracelet.

    I'm still trying to get my mom to paint with me. She just moved into a new apartment recently so I'm not pushing it too hard. She painted way be back before I was born so it's not something that she's super unfamiliar with.

    I'm in Maryland until Tuesday. While it's nice to visit family they are coming to us in a couple of weeks. Going to D.C. Tomorrow and Sunday. Here's hoping I make it home sane...or at least as same as i already am.

    Not done packing/cleaning for tomorrow. Should probably get on that...

    Randomness XIV: THE FLOOR IS LAVA!

    I'm getting ready to leave for my /third/ vacation of the year tomorrow. I'm tired of traveling and just want to sit at home.
  20. Sometimes. It's hard enough to finish one book currently let alone re-read something. I re-read many things as a kid. Currently, there are none on my list.
  21. I got this for myself: I'm having tons of fun with it. I've finished 2 so far and am onto a third. I'm trying to implement my 3D painting techniques onto paper, like highlighting and shading.  ETA: I'm using colored pencils not paint.

    Minivember: The Last (2018)

    Minivember is here once again! I know that today is the 5th so I'm going to have to play a little catch up as I was on vacation until yesterday evening. Now I need to get started painting so this will probably be a shorter intro post than previous years. You may ask why the title says "The Last." Well because this is the last year that I am going to be doing Minivember. Next year I'll have a new fun thing but it will be in October instead of November because of how busy this time of year is for me. And I know that the holidays are part of the challenge but it's getting to be too much of a challenge. This year I'm going to be painting minis from Shadows of Brimstone that I have not yet finished. My goal (like every year) is to paint at least thirty (30) unique minis, one (1) for each day. While I've reached this goal in the past I'm going to push myself a little further this year and try to get all of one type of the mini painted. Some of them have up to six (6) of the same mini. I chose to paint this because I want to play the game again and this is a great time to get it done. While this is not all of the SoB minis that I have to do it is a good chunk of them. Anyway, here's this year's calendar and I'll be posting photos as soon as I can.

    I finished! Kind of. I got links to all the minis that I have (and think I have) put in. That was about 450 lines (lots more minis than that but those are just the individual SKUs.) ... Then I'm not even sure I've got everything we have because I can't remember if we got the Bonsylvanians or not from the last KS. And I haven't put in my metal from Reaper (which might be all the metal I have), then still need to do WizKids, and trying to decide if I even want to do games.

    I'm so tired. Woke up around 5 this morning. Have been working on my inventory spreadsheet for like 4 hours and still no where near done.

    Randomness XIV: THE FLOOR IS LAVA!

    I passed out last night before I could surface from my mess of a spreadsheet. Thankfully I can sort Bones in the store by SKU. I'm going in and inputting links to store pages in case I need more of /something/... I've gotten through the first...35 lines. I've got a ways to go.
