Brain has gone asplodey again.

I'm stuck on some of the upcoming projects, and with a four day drill this weekend, I'm not gonna get as much done as I wanted to.  Oh well, it's not like I need to sleep...

I've found the basis for the eagle, as well as the two heads, I think.  I'll use papier mache eggs as a mold, with wire armatures for the wings and necks.

I'm going to use a two-liter Coke bottle as the mold for Liam's lady, since it'll have that hourglass shape.  I'll cut the back of the bottle out, so the back is smooth, but I think that'll work pretty well.  She'll be in a black and gold cote and sideless surcote that will trail out to his mantle, I hope, so it's not like I've got nothing to do!

I've started laying out the letters of intent and think *maybe* I might be going a wee bit overboard.  Nah.  John's is actually pretty easy, the Greek aside, and Liam's will just take a while to lay out, more so than paint.  John's will be a dome, with the Greek lettering in three columns under the dome, and Liam's is a take off from the Manesse Codex, with a knight and a rose tree that forms the border.  We'll see how they turn out.

Okay...

So, what have I been doing in my spare time?  Besides wishing some Dallas peeps could go pick this up for me and hang on to it until I can get up there next weekend??

Well, working on a scroll.  Our Stronghold is holding our first event in August, and so, I decided we needed to do invites.  Personally, I blame [livejournal.com profile] zaphod_groupie , because our group got an invite to an event she was doing, and well...that kinda made me all keen on doing it too!

Well, because I am insano in the braino, I decided to take on the idea of making this invite.

I've done...three...scrolls. I think.

So, what else to do but go all out?  This is not inked yet, but it'll give you an idea.

So I don't eat your friends page... )

Tomorrow, I will be up to my eyeballs in turkey, family and friends, so I'm going take a moment today to say how thankful I am for my life. I have a wonderful, loving family, the best friends I could ask for, a stable job, and a new house. My dogs are pretty awesome (even horrible little rat dogs that steal sandwiches off desks...) and I am so incredibly blessed.

Tell me what you're grateful for?

We did it!

We are now homeowners!

*dances* 

I'm still slightly croggled that this is my life.  It's just too awesome.

I'll get some pictures tomorrow.  Since we don't fund until tomorrow, we won't pick up keys until then, but after that, it's on, baby!

OMG HOUSE!
