Those who craft together....

Stay together

In this episode I will be featuring my hunny!
But first some business to attend to; I have decided to begin posting on Mondays because it is getting harder and harder to get this thing posted during the weekend and still have a life (Saturday was a trip to the State Fair,which we got home late from and yesterday was a hair cut and lunch with a friend I haven't seen in forever then to the fabric store with a client to pick up materials, to my parents house for a bit, I finally got home at 7pm and then we went to a friend's for dinner) Some days during the week I'm not able to work on the Spartans at all after work and then if I don't have a lot of catch up time on Saturday I'm kind of screwed for getting the blog up Sunday morning. So we're going to try posting on Monday morning so that I have both days during the weekend to work on it because honestly keeping my sanity is my number one priority, I know I chose to do this huge project, but that doesn't mean I need to go crazy trying to complete it.
Thank you for your understanding :-)


Matt (my hunny) plays a game called Warhammer 40k (which is a tabletop, miniature based, strategy war game) and he paints his miniatures, often times while I'm crocheting (see? Crafty togetherness) so today I'm going to show off some of his crafty painting skillz (with a Z)  because I just have to brag on my talented man.

First up we have a Wolf Guard Terminator of the Space Wolf chapter (super badass dude)

I really enjoyed watching him paint this one, the layering of the different paints and washes and detailing, love it!

Next we have an older piece (like 1998...I know right. Ancient) just to compare how his styles have changed in the time between. It is a Giant from Warhammer Fantasy, it was in his orc and goblin army

He also does other painting things, like this skeletal warrior he did for me

Priming! I thought this was a cool pic

I got the thing at Putt Putt and he made it look friggn badass!

 It's going to sit on my window sill at work (along with a tiny dog, Spartan #1, a Chinese coin, and a tiny bottle of Tequila)

Now on to other things!

We are taking our jester characters out to Texas Renaissance Festival on their Pirate weekend and we are dressing our jesters up as pirates (it's going to be epic) Matt is designing and painting us a flag for our "ship" (because he can)

unfortunately it's not finished yet, but it will be in the next day or so.

That's all he'll let me put in the blog from his stuff... this time.

I finished the first ball of cotton yarn for Matt's hand towel
I've already started on the second ball of yarn too.


today I have 37, 38, and 39
37 happens to belong to my littlest sister, his name is Tiny

yes, that is a penguin and yes it is a button, no I did not sculpt it. I know, cheaty face, but this week I don't care, I have way too much going on to try and make ALL THE THINGS

38, I believe is homeless currently, his name is Lassius

39 is also homeless, his name is Zephyris

welp, that's all folks. Don't forget, posting is now on Monday (though I hope not so late on Mondays, this week has been CRAZY) have a good week all!
