I am torn...

I think I can do this so filling out the Q (i.e. updating the last one)
It's been a whirlwind week, with big changes at work, with kids' schedules and with school.
Gearing up already to start RN school!!!

Sooo... If I can get some things out of the way before Friday, I'm in!

Dont feel to bad! I've got a mother in egypt stuck trying to immigrate her hubby, my aunt just lost her baby cause her bf shook him and their pinnin it on her... its just a mess on my end of the world! Wish i could get some of it out of the way before friday!!! Oh well, a girl needs a break every now n again to do something not-so-depressing so lets get crackin!

OMG So sorry to hear about what's going on with you Girl! Let's get crackin' indeed!

Pua...ya gotta!! Grin
Hehe, I know, just like old times huh!

Well, I'm thinking I gotta, cuz it'll be a loooong time before I could do another swap after this one wraps up. On top of having to train one more employee (just finished 2 others) I just found out I need one more class prior to nursing school, so there'll be no summer vaca. Meh, not bad, just busy. Wink

Sorry that I haven't been around too, too much to add to the conversation- I'm just working on my last essay of this semester (2 pages to go- it's coming slowly), but I will be all yours come tomorrow after 5 pm! Wink

Ugh i always hated essays in school...thankfully most of my years in homeschool were filled with essay-less bliss!! T.T cant say the same for my last 3 years in college.....2 essays a week ....in almost every class! Hope you finish quickly...that essay surely cant be as entertaining as the lot of us =D ~~~~temmmpppptationnnnn~~~~

though....I used to wait until the day the essay was due to be bothered writing it ha ha ha!! (dont ask me how I managed A+'s for 3 years lol!!)

I cheated.... I found a craft store about 30miles away (yep...i really made the drive...) and bought plain old brown teddy bear eyes and orange cat eyes (was all they had anyway...) and busted out my trusty dremel XD and my lovely engraving bit...only takes me about 2min per eye to slowly grind out the color and paint over it XD the smaller eyes are faster but if I go to fast the dremel skips and hits the outer eye....and meh...thats a pain

I wouldnt stress it =D I drew the eyes on most the poppets I've made thus far....the eyes I have now I only got a few days ago ha ha! I've not made one poppet with em, so this is a whole new experience for me! I think you've got some time to grab ahold of some ^.^

If you want to avoid potentially damaging them with a dremel, I just try to get as much of the paint off as I can with nail polish remover, and then what is remaining I just sandpaper. It probably doesn't take more than 5 minutes or so an eye.

The only eyes I can get here are basic amber doll eyes or green cat eyes. I usually draw/paint doll faces   but hopefully my partner won't mind amber eyes or some close variant as I can repaint the backs.
