kjpepper: (paint the town red)
[personal profile] kjpepper
Jaysu pete, it's amazing how much of a pain in the butt it is to cut cardboard to exact measurements without a) an x-acto knife or b) a paper cutter. I'm happy it was just thin cardboard (remember those new sneakers? the box has been sacrificed to a very noble cause) but still, ai-ya. Next time I do this there will be a paper slicer involved, fuck this noise. The good news, after spending an evening gleefully littering my bed with cardboard fragments, I have the bases for the book cover. Tomorrow my prize for getting productive things done is a trip to aforementioned fabric store for actual cover material.

For something I'm just kind of making up as I go along, the book project is going rather fantastic. Here's hoping I haven't jinxed it by saying that and the cover doesn't come out a total mess. But if it works out, I'll definitely be making a few more of them. Possibly with beaded covers if I can swing it. We'll see. We all know I'm rather good at making grandiose project plans and then never doing anything with them... :P

Alas, my pretty pretty fingernails have sort of been sacrificed to the call of crafting. I'm gonna have to paint them again sometime this week.

I downloaded a few plugins for pidgin that are so far pleasing me greatly. One allows you to add facebook chat to it, so I now have that up in pidgin too, which is cool, there are some folk I like to talk to that only chat through there and means I don't have to keep that tab open. The other one replicates that google talk effect that allows your current music to display as your status. I didn't realize it was working until [livejournal.com profile] grinninfoole started commenting on how I was fast forwarding through a few tracks, and I was all "como se wtf???" But I'm very pleased it does actually work. :)

Busy week ahead... I hope my head stays in the relatively calm space it's been in for the past couple days so I can get shit done. And after that, I get to go... well, home.

In other news, Gwen was gifted with an American Doll for her birthday. I am sure Chrissie would love to meet Aeris!

And while my first reaction was OMG! No! I thought I'd dodged that bullet!!! It does give good opportunity for gifts in the form of doll clothes. Got any patterns I can steal?

You still coming buy this weekend?

I read!! I totally squeed when I heard. Aeris is "travelling" right now (she's staying with [livejournal.com profile] kittikattie's 12 dolls in seattle). but I'll gladly sit and talk shop with Gwennie until I'm blue in the face and bring pictures of mine. Thanks for reminding me to dig the other four out of the "attic."

I don't have patterns but I've had very high recommendations for The Doll's Dressmaker as a place to start. Also if you ever want craft and character ideas for AG sized dolls, I highly recommend joining [livejournal.com profile] ag_over_18. (or if you just want doll related hilarity, every Saturday is DOLLERDAY.)

ETA: oh yeah, duh yes. I'm gonna see if I can come up Friday/Saturday.
