Well here he is, finally "done". Not sure if I'll add a nose or mouth :3 I kinda like how weird he looks. He looks creepy. *lol*

Doll sketches

Actually the reason Larry looks so-not-finished is because I want to start making another type of doll - the one on the sketch. *heh* The scanner in me is acting up again. ( ̄◇ ̄)ゞ

I plan to make a collection of dolls out of my "Larry" prototype. I need to work on it more though. I think I should start on the face first. The face makes or break a doll (in my opinion) and I haven't found a signature look for my doll. I was practicing Konata eyes but my embroidery skills are really horrible! I need to practice more.

Life recently... #30

I think this kind of life is not so bad. I'm never going to be the kind of person who's out there socializing, attending events and going out with friends. I'm always going to be this person who likes indoor activities. When I do go out because I get a sudden desire to experience things, then good. The point is, I decided I'm not going to stress about life. I'm going to do everything I want, someday, tomorrow, today. I'm going to be happy for today and view my future as a guideline. Things change, people change. :)

Summer crafts: DIY dreamcatcher tutorial

This is so addicting! I don't know what I'm going to use these dreamcatchers for though :/ should I string them up to make mobiles, garlands...or simply make a necklace?

Yarn, crochet thread, leather, nylon cord etc.

Summer Crafts: Natural style Dreamcatcher

DIY natural style dreamcatcher

As much as dreamcatchers fascinate me, they also seem spooky. They are, don't you think? Especially the traditional ones with feathers and native charms. :/ I know they have their purpose. Supposedly the feathers guide good dreams down while various charms protect the person sleeping. They scare me much the same way wind chimes do. (Or maybe I just read too much. *lol*)

I might add them later if I find ones that don't scare me

But I would prefer dreamcatchers in happy colors or made from doilies! (Where do you buy doilies btw?!)

Hear my prayer
let me sleep peacefully tonight

I'm not plagued by bad dreams but I can feel my mind getting heavier. My condition is acting up again. I'm taking meds and busying myself with reading and crafts. Hopefully I'll feel better soon. :( What do you do when your own mind/body betrays you. *sigh*

Still...I will fight!

grit /n/ Firmness of mind and spirit. :)

from where I stand - Iron Man movie night!

Cersei is boring

Book 4 of A song of ice and fire is excruciatingly difficult to read. I'm tempted to skip Jaime & Cersei's chapters yet again which is half the book! I like the characters but I just don't care what happens to them tbh.

I made this layout for Michy. I love the colors she chose - dark gray, coral and mint. :)
