a bazillion echeveria - day twenty-four

Batch done...

DSCN4676

I like these, I need to make more, but they're hand colored so they take longer...

DSCN4695

I had fun with these, but ran out of purple paper...

This shape didn't work for me, so I stopped after the first five, then used the rest of the colored-edge shapes to super-size them...

I'm not sure about the snowflake shape on the current batch, it's a little weird, but it will add variety to the grouping...

my office is staffed by druggies...and new stuffs

"This Mucinex is the best man!", "Have you tried Alka Seltzer Cold and Flu?",  "I'm hooked on Sudafed Pain & Pressure", "I've been taking zinc, it seems to help, I don't know",  "Do you still have some Emergen-C?",  "This menthol-camphor salve has essential oils....take a snort of this."  "Can somebody hook me up with an antihistamine?"

I'm sick again.  The whole office is sick again.  I swear we've been passing the same, mutating, virus around all winter.  It was proposed yesterday that we leave the telecom business and go to work for Kleenex.  Maybe there is a medical research team that needs bulk quantities of snot, we'd be perfect suppliers.

So....when you don't feel well enough to build, you buy, right? 

Lighting for the contest build.  I am going to, for the first time (gasp!), use actual dollhouse lighting and not make my own from LEDs.

A toilet and sink...plastic, you paint the underside whatever color you want.  I'll let you know how they turn out.

Bunches of cheap grapes that aren't realistic grapes but I think will make nice succulents.....and a can of Pringles, because Pringles are my weakness.  I can never have too many Pringles.  Speaking of...remember when a can costs 99 cents?  You know what 99 cents gets you now?  A midget can...an on sale midget can.   I understand price increases due to inflation, but c'mon!  Don't midgetize my Pringles!

Nevermind my rant, it's the pills talking.

Kat, lovely, lovely Kat, mailed me a goodie box.  Bits and bobs and gorgeous hand stitched petit point pillows.  Look at those perfect wee stitches, it's craziness!

Thank you so much, Kat.  I have retaliation a thank you gift planned.  I've got a little something for Miss Kitty, too.

And...I finally won an ebay auction for a cat!

DSCN4721

He's a Birman, made by ewelina.  I usually bow out of the auctions when they hit $125 or $150, but managed to snag this beauty for just under $100.    Honestly, I think the legs are a bit weird, I may attempt modification.  I love his little face though, and his colors, and his big fluffy tail.  He's dreamy.

I'm off to soak in a bathtub full of menthol bubbles in hopes that I might be able to breathe out of my nose for a little bit.  I'll give you a bazillion echeveria update this weekend.
