I received from SBC, and she made something so very very me! Everyone at work thought it was hilarious, too, and I'm probably going to have to at least share with our front counter on Pi Day...

(Pardon the mess, Thanksgiving weekend is carpet cleaning weekend and we start piling everything up and out of the way - even the chairs have to fit on the desks, so everything gets crammed whenever it can fit!)

Wow, awesome bridge pic! All we've done is visit an antique mall and there was a bacon-themed birthday party...

It's not so much that it's a glass bone...  or even the "has many uses"...  so much as it's the smiley face...

Not as horrible as you might think...  It's not going to be my new favorite soda, but I've had worse!

Good luck with NaNo! I'm only sort of doing it this year, I have a much lower wordcount goal to hit, and I'm on track for that (though the story is absolute rubbish, I really need to plot one of these times, and not accidentally kill of main characters and/or have them get sucked through wormholes to alternate dimensions).

Cali was cramming for book club tonight - part of the afghan on our couch compliments her so well!

I hate perler beads.  There, I said it.  I know they're a kid-level craft, and many adults are super-masters, and their stuff looks great, but I cannot work with them.  I'm normally a very patient crafter, but these little things just drive me up the wall.  And I'm horrible at getting them to fuse properly.  But this time...

(Full disclosure: these are borrowed supplies, and the bead were all in a mixed tub, and they may - well, apparently were - from different sets/batches?)

So I start sorting, and I need a dark pink, light pink, white, and black.  Not tough.  I'm using a paint tray to sort because it's what I had on hand.

These all look the same, right?  Okay, a few seemed a little more... transparent?  But not hugely obvious or anything, I figured it was just a little color variation, it would blend... it would be fine...

Nope.  Nope.  Nope.  Not even close, once ironed.

Once I saw the color difference I just went on ironing to see how flat/melted I could get it, to see if I could get it smooth (the answer is no, I could not, it just started to look over-melted and weird).

I know there are all these methods with tape and fancy things and whatnot, but I'm pretty sure I'm just hanging up my perler bead apron forever.  It's just too time-intensive and far, far, far too easy to mess up after you've put all that time into it.  I don't mind spending time on things, but I prefer it when I have a little more control over it... and/or am better at it...

Argh, people send and RECEIVING already, and I'm still stuck.  I keep deciding on something, starting it, and then... not liking it.  But!  New idea, craft I know I can do, and supplies I know I can get, I will get them tomorrow and make it this week and send (hopefully) on Friday.  If all goes well.  If not, I'll be sending a tad bit late on Monday.

We had a delayed Halloween party at bellydance class last weekend!  It was nice to dress up one more time, though I didn't have anything new - I just went with my pi outfit.

The studio was super-decorated with Halloween stuff, so Cali got to enjoy/pose with it and eat some candy!  Cheesy

I received from anna.wahnsinn!!! Are you prepared for the prettiness? Cheesy

DPN holder! One of the things I love about other people making things is they put their own spin/style on it. And I love this! Pardon the fact it has a letter opener in it, I don't have any knitting at work...  but I wanted to show how it worked. 

Four sets of stitch markers! These are so handy, especially when designing patterns, because you can rip back to certain points when it's not working out. So so handy!  And I admit, this made me squeee out loud...

How cute is Mr Shark?! I love sharks...

And then she sent some cabochans!

I'm so happy, thank you so much for claiming me!!! I don't think I'll have the time to participate in November's, but I'll be back in December!!!

I had a plan, then I decided against that plan, now I'm rethinking that plan...

Tell me I'm not the only one that has this problem!  D:

I admit, I haven't even started yet, but I just finished all my other stuff, so starting this week, it's aaaaaaall this swap. No idea what I'm going to do yet, I'll admit, I had some ideas but just could not find the supplies I needed (even on ye olde internet) so I'm going to have to think more on it.
