Trying to perfect a Blythe doll bonnet and a new bookshelf
First one came out too large, maybe for a baby human? All the other attempts fit fairly well, I just need to add some button closures.
Here is the latest addition to my home office. I actually ordered a white lacquered bookshelf, but I was sent this "espresso" one. I decided to keep it because it sort of matched my desk/computer/printer. I think the white would have been nice though, it would have disappeared into the background more. : /

News from the craft cave

Week in review
After an internet search looking for metal rods for a possible wall clothing rack project, I came across this idea to use tension rods for temporary storage and organization. Now I'm tempted to purchase a shower curtain rod or a regular curtain tension rod like this to see if it can hold heavy weight items. This junky $3 one (pictured) I had in my closet could only hold the weight of a few fabric samples. I love the idea of not having to drill any holes in the wall for this and the adaptability
Paint by SizeI'm in the process of clearing out my studio in my apartment and creating a craft cave in a basement. I've been spending the week photographing and sorting my paintings by size. It it stressful finding a safe place to store all my work. I want to make sure to protect them from light and moisture damage. Right now I have them stored high on wire racks but I'm running out of space, eek!
Out with a Bang!
A van smashed into our home. The driver was okay. The bricks survived with minimal damage. The shrubs shrugged it off. Here the fire department is making sure that the van doesn't explode. Thank you FDNY!
It is still early on Friday so let's see what is in store for today!

New Pattern - Muted Clouds
Spoonflower shop. I think this would look cute as nursery wallpaper. I ordered a fat quarter today to test out as a pillow.

Reeve Carney from Spider-Man the Musical on BroadwaySal and I finally saw Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark last night on Broadway. He noted that Reeve who plays Spider-Man looks like James Franco. I agree, a fresher-faced, cleaned-up, less crack-heady version of Franco, also, the black velveteen bow he is wearing in this photo definitely ups the cuteness factor.
We both liked the idea of a Spider-Man jacket, a simplified version of this hoodie would be cool.

This now concludes my "no caffeine" experiment
The GOOD- Elimination of feelings of impeding doom. No panicky feelings that I am going to be suffocated to death on a crowded NYC subway.
The BAD- Foggy head in the morning and took me much longer to get things done.
The MEH- Equally as alert in the late afternoon and evenings with or without my morning coffee.
I realized yesterday I've been drinking "caffe` e latte" off and on since I was 5 years old, why stop now unless I have to? However, I will still limit intake to one capp. a day to (try to) prevent a racing heart and the associated unwarranted feelings of dread.
