    Randomness XIV: THE FLOOR IS LAVA!

    They really could have listed it on the back of the card in big letters or something that you can't use it online. I'm pretty salty about it. We had like $90 of stuff in our cart and got out down to 80ish with store sale then have a $50 gift card. I just want some Mariner's shirts darn it.

    -Finished Marth -Finished Brand -Started Advent Calendar -Bought Angel of Shadows Still planning out the FrGQ. Still working on calendar, have almost all of the materials for it. Still deciding between Minivember and All Minis Eve. That will most likely be determined by if I finish said calendar.

    Went to buy some baseball stuff online because they're having a 25% off sale and we have a gift card. Turns out if you buy the gift card in a brick and mortar store you can't use it online!

    Sparrow paints Marthrangul

    So I'm currently in the stages of prepping Marthrangul for a contest. I'm also painting the Frost Giant Queen as a backup entry. So once I get started of love all the C&C I can get. I have a little less than a month to do him in.
  5. Ordered a curtain rod and a couple of brass rods from Lowe's for cheaper than it would have been in store. With free shipping. Still waiting on my paint.

    All Minis Eve

    So, for October this year I'm going to attempt to paint a mini a day. This will take the place of Minivember probably from now on. November's have just become too busy for me to feasibly paint everyday. This will be called All Minis Eve! I am currently in the process of making an advent calendar for October. I'll post how I'm doing it and progress, I hope to have it done before October so I can kick things off this year. How it works: I have tons of minis laying around so unless you want to or don't have enough (is that a problem around here?) minis you won't need to buy any (unless you want to). You will need 31. Once the calendar is assembled 1 mini will go in each felt pouch and you pull one out each day then plan, prep, and paint it. You have that one day to do it. Midnight to midnight. I will not get to pick out my own minis as I will have my Husband do it so it'll be a surprise each day. To start I bought: Spooky spider web fabric Adorable ghost ribbon (1.5") Tan felt (three 9"x12" sheets) Black felt (three 9"x12" sheets) Fabric glue I also have handy: Sewing needles Orange thread Fabric tape measure Ruler Scissors Fabric pencil Pen/Sharpie I don't yet have a dowel and ends for it or photo transfer paper. I will edit the above later if I've forgotten anything. Some pictures of materials: Plans: Above is a rough sketch of what the layout will be like. I have cut the tan felt into 33- 3"x3" squares and a 3"x9" rectangle. I will take 1 yard of fabric and affix the squares with fabric glue and sew them on as well for extra hold. I will leave several inches free at the top to put the title which I will cut out of the black felt. I will use a piece of ribbon to underline it and then put the squares below.

    All Minis Eve

    Have started seeing along the edges of the pockets. Which apparently look like flaps of skin... Also, at this rate I might be doing this for 7 hours (we did the math).

    All Minis Eve

    Decided to pull the thread. Going to play around with some stitching on the edges of the pockets.

    All Minis Eve

    After having slept on it I'm not sure I like the orange thread.
  12. SparrowMarie

    All Minis Eve

    Got some thread done on a few of the pockets. Having a small issue getting through the glue, might need a sharper needle?

    All Minis Eve

    Revised my planning sheet, changed some numbers around. Hoping I had a place to have the darned thing when I'm done.

    Randomness XIV: THE FLOOR IS LAVA!

    Today I received my new computer charger. It is working as intended. This means I won't need to replace my battery. On the downside my paints did not show up as expected, if they aren't here by Friday I'm gonna throw a fit at someone. For the rest of today I have a deep dental cleaning (under the gums). I am going to request a lot of anesthetic and take some anti anxiety drugs. Because I get a strong feeling this will not be fun. Then off to my Mom's to hang out and binge some Doctor Who.

    Randomness XIV: THE FLOOR IS LAVA!

    Anyone know where I can find elemental minis that are larger than the reaper ones?
  16. SparrowMarie

    All Minis Eve

    They weren't all the numbers! But I fixed it and here is the beginning of the pockets.
  17. SparrowMarie

    All Minis Eve

    I've cut out, what I think are, all the numbers I'll need. My fingers are very sore.
  18. SparrowMarie

    All Minis Eve

    I think I need different scissors. This is more or less how I'm going to lay out the numbers. Cutting fabric later so I can start attaching things.

    Getting to Know You: Sept 2018

    Most of them came with Husband. Otherwise we get a lot of art prints from KS. My favorite place for non-game related prints is Neverwear.

    All Minis Eve

    I cut out the squares, they're more or less 3x3". Then cut the rectangle. Also cut out the letters for the title bit. Hoping they're a good size because I used the largest size font that Google docs had. Haven't touched the numbers yet, they may be too large for how I want to use them. Also haven't decided on whether or not to use the apostrophe I printed.

    Randomness XIV: THE FLOOR IS LAVA!

    Aww I wish they made cool phone cases like that for my phone. Though I am fairly clumsy and probably need the protective one I have. Other things: Finished Marthrangul, need to take better photos and post in Show Off. Went to JoAnn Fabrics today and bought stuff to start work on my Halloween themed advent calendar that I'm going to use for a minis thing. Made it out spending 25$USD after tax and coupons! Will probs start on that tomorrow. (Should I/Am I allowed to make a WIP thread for this, some people have shown some interest in seeing the progress of it.) Had to buy a new charge cord for my laptop, the one I have is borked. It will keep the computer on but won't charge the battery anymore. It is less than a year old.
