It's 2 in the morning and I should be in bed. Had a super productive weekend - got a lot of sewing done, almost finished our tiny gardenette (I'll post photos soon), babysat my almost-nieces for most of Saturday, and am working away on my store progress report (or plan of progress, rather). My kitty is curled up next to me, in a all-too-clear hint that I am not dedicating my attentions to the proper object here. But of course.

I got this outfit out, and wondered which doll should wear it. Zhen and Camilla fought for it (of course), but Zhen won by power of seniority.
And then she got to go with me to work and we stopped on the way in the shrinking urban decay area of Navy Ship Yard. They are prettifying the area way too much for my taste.
Zhen wears hat and pants made by me, her own stock shirt and boots, and random chains.

Magnet Ideas - Wishful Thinking

Trying out some ideas for magnets. I've had this little sleepy lion drawing for a while, and I love it to bits. I want it on a onesie or something (except I don't have a baby to wear it! D'oh! ^_^ )
so, for the magnet, I tried to develop the idea - like, what's he dreaming about? And then I saw photos from one of my Flickr contacts - he works for an animal sanctuary and at some point had a lion cub at home (until the cub was big enough to live in the sanctuary) - and YAY! Here's the result.

So, I finally joined the cool people by getting glasses. My vision's been getting a bit blurry (and surprisingly, it's my distance vision, not the close-range), and I got tired of not being able to see clearly. So voila! Glasses! Hans is now the only one in the family without them (not that he needs them).

Feeling Chart Magnet for Girls

I just found the perfect magnet sheets for printing these on - it's thick and strong, so it sticks well.

One of my favorites - remember when these were kind of popular?
So I made a chart for girls, but with, you know, descriptions more suited for people like me. We don't get "happy" - we're either "gleeful" or "blissed out". And we don't get "tired". By the time it registers with me, I feel "dead".
By the way, anyone feels like maybe I should do a variety of hair types (like do one with curly hair, short hair, etc) for more custom feel?
I'm working on one for guys, too, with slightly different feeling list - do you think it's something that guys would go for?
