I'm also one of the ones working slowly. I've almost finished installing the "hard wood" floors on the bottom floor, but that's pretty much it. There's been thinking and planning going on! Lots of thinking and planning.

alwaysinmyroom - the cottage house is a 1:24 scale. The Victorian and Fantasy houses are even smaller - I'm not sure exactly what scale. The furniture set fits nicely in the cottage, but looks big in the others.
I have the Victorian house. I've decided to go with a scale of 1:30. i.e. 1 foot = 1/2.5 inches. I think it will work out nice with the room size, and it's also an extra force for me to make everything myself. I'm a mathematician, so it shouldn't hurt my brain too much.   Smiley

Thank you all!

This is really beautiful!! It looks like all the chakra colors. I think also with the crystals it could be very magical for you!!! kudos!
This is actually the reason I decided to arrange the colors vertically as opposed to horizontally.  Cheesy

I'm still in the planning stage! I'm trying to decide if I wanted to take a leap and attempt any lighting, boyfriend chimes in: "Oh, I just assumed you were going to add lighting." Yep, it's that easy with my team of tiny engineers...

I also need to pick up a couple more things, mainly wood stain as my old can is in a different state. Random note: check the library database for decent books BEFORE you spent 30 minutes looking for the library card. My local branch doesn't have the mentioned polyclay miniatures one or anything that seems useful, unless you're interested in civil war miniatures...

First off, Im very tired right now, so I apologize in advance for any bad typing/spelling/grammar.

A few weeks ago, at a local food and craft festival, I came across beautiful suncatchers and talismans. My boyfriend and I were both in love with a big rainbow one, but, while it was well worth the asking price, it was out of our budget. After a trip to Michaels for rainbow colored glass beads, a trip through the woods and river for the perfect stick, and a search through my stash for random things (like the big circle pendant, small metal hoop, lots of metal leaves, small glass beads, a nice big piece of quartz, and a wonderful little fairy) I put my own spin on the idea and created the perfect suncatcher for our family. 

The plan was to wait until a beautiful sunny day to take wonderful bright photos of the colors dancing on the walls, and then we had a hurricaneand now weve had enough consistent rain to cause flooding and mass road closures. So, I did my best with the photos. They do not do justice to the beautiful colors and lights that this suncatcher lets off. As soon as If we see sun again, I plan to take pictures of the cat chasing the spots of light around the room.

I would just like to let you know that you all are a bad influence! I swear I was all set to start on Christmas gifts... Oh well, I went ahead and picked up the Victorian style Creatology. I've got the house dry fitted and all of the rooms marked, but I need advice on a theme. To save time, stop reading now, to offer your ever appreciated advice, keep going.  Cheesy

I'm torn between:
Serial killer's house: pictures of "idols" on the walls, "meat" cooking in the kitchen, old victims and extra torture tools in the attic, blood cleaning in the bathroom, new victim in the bedroom, the kids watching Barney in the living room...I know I could do a good job, but it would be extremely disturbing, don't think I could keep it up except for Halloween.
Classic haunted house: think Rose Red and The Haunted, possibly parts of Pan's Labyrinth
Tim Burton homage: whimsical but realistic, the cartoon parts would be portrayed as toys (Zero stuffy!) or pictures. Fun theme but, oddly, I think I might feel limited and cliche.
Witch's house: not scary, but makes for a good year-round theme even with obvious Halloween touches. More personal to me, but probably less interesting for the boyfriend. Also a chance to throw in random fantasy touches.

I received from Troublet! When she claimed a pin cushion for me, I got very excited. I just want to show everyone what my old pin cushion looks like first.

Old pin cushion:

It was made from an old ribbon roll, painted black with stuffing and fabric shoved down in the hole...it works, it's just ugly.

So, this is what I received:

A wonderful pin cushion and the exact yarn I've been needing! The easiest way to get my boyfriend into crafts is to make something based off old video games, adult swim shows, or his sports teams. And since I also love purple, I've really wanted to make something in Ravens colors. These are perfect, and they're wool so I can try some felting.

The pin cushion is closer to the colors in this last picture. (It's been rainy and our indoor lightly isn't that great, so sorry the colors a bit off.) It says "live, love, sew" along the outside.  Cheesy The size is also very nice. It's just slightly bigger than my old one. It's very cute, and I love all the stitched details on it. Everything is great! Thank you Troublet!

I got my package from wx2dzug, and it's awesome!

First some random notes... Everyone should take the time to meet your mailperson. You might just be so lucky to discover that you have a very cute mailman. Also, meeting face to face tends to make people more willing to do things for you, such as rushing back to hand deliver your box after they find it was hiding. Also, trying to drive to work while opening said box may be time efficient, but it's stupid. Don't do it. No matter how curious you are. Now on to pics!

Awesome jewelry! I just kept finding more little packages to open! Everything fits my style perfectly.

I got giddy when I saw these. I love them. I'm planning on wearing them to work today (which I need to leave for in about ten minutes!)

And awesome cuffs! The fabric and colors are great, and I'm so thankful for these! My sewing machine was growling at me when I tried to make some myself (I'm in need of new needles that I haven't gotten around to yet).

Thank you so much for everything!!

Alrighty guys! Here's cyndy225's gift to me! It is absolutely perfect for me! Zombie Freud Amigurumi for the Psych Major! I keep making jokes about how his ideas will never die... my boyfriend is not amused. Enough blabbering, onto the pictures!!

goktrose, I'm glad you like him! He's completely approved as a boyfriend torture device!

Now that my head is mostly cleared up, I got the chance to check out the gallery so far. The I spy bag and laptop bag are pretty awesome. And I'm starting on my second claim, mistress_batty's gift, today.
