Clean-Schmean

We've been contemplating moving for a couple of years now. Unfortunately, we're getting more serious. That means . . . cleaning, packing, cleaning, purging, cleaning, stressing.

My gut response is to get a dumpster and throw everything in it. I actually asked for a dumpster rental for Christmas, but didn't get it.


My workshop is a pretty major part of this whole cleaning thing. Apparently, not everyone wants to see a drill press, workbench, tools, and various metal objects scattered all over the corner of the "beautiful, finished basement." And stepping on metal shrapnel during a walk-through is frowned upon. Whatever.

So now I have to figure out how to manage my creativity within a clean environment. Someone send lots of chocolate and Coke.

Epic-Ness


I've been working on this bot, trying to get everything just right. I think he's pretty close. You can hook up your ipod, iphone, or ipad and let the good times roll. His head contains a portable, rechargeable speaker with coloring changing lights. The strainer holes serve to let the light and music seep out in robotic awesomeness. I'm working on getting a good video of him soon!

Piercings


I'm livin' the dream. I got my first-ever piercing! I may be going through a mid-life crisis, who wants in?

Ear is less red now and adjusting well, thank you.

Still Chuggin'

I seem to have a problem with keeping up with things that require, you know, thoughts and words and all that other coherent stuff. Luckily I'm still completely capable of operating the drill press.







I'll work on that whole coherent thing at some point.

A Mini Purge

While I've been meaning to think about goals, resolutions, and all that responsible adult stuff, I keep putting it off in favor of naps.

As compensation, I decided to do an Etsy Purge. All Steampunk Jewelry in my shop is 15% off and all Christmas Ornaments are 30% off.

I'll work on that adult stuff later. After a nap . . . or two.

I Love a Good Snowman
