SO! Well, part of the big doings for me lately has been my workroom itself! I have ocupied a small spare bedroom for many years now, but this is the year it finally will look more like a studio! For the past week & a half-ish (not counting the month of slowly getting everything OUT) has been devoted to painting the walls the starkest, brightest, glossiest WHITE I could find, pulling up the carpeting (*victory cheer*), & painting the floor white with porch paint. I had wanted to put down white vinyl flooring, but being the oddity out there & WANTING an all white floor that shows everything, I couldn't find any & wasn't going to dish out for a sort-of-white floor. The porch paint is lovely & white, so I'm good! Here are some pictures... yes, not a very model-horsey start to my blog! Brace yourself for the first pic! A workroom is NOT a simplistic scene! It looks like a dump, but I assure you, the greater majority of the detritus is not only needed but also used! To date, I am just about finished; I ran out of wall paint in the 'closet' (the space will hold shelves & not actually be used as, nor has it been for years, a closet)... my paint came in today so I need to pick it up & finish that, & add another coat to some of the trim. Then the painting will be DONE! Once the light is put in I can officially start moving everything back in! I have moved a few thing back in so I can keep working, but it's still very empty!
I had been hunting for a decently priced Khemosabi, yes you read that right! I decided to do the Khemo makeover challenge that MEPSA is holding. I finally found one at a price I'd pay & the pitiful looking critter just landed in my post box today! Yich! What a creature! I have big plans for him! Hopefully I will have him finished in time for the contest. He will take lower priority to paying commissions, so he will get shoved down the queue if others need done. But, I have a nice idea for him & plan to get cracking on him soon.
