Blue Pillow Seat (2)

I meant to post this about three days ago only to realize I hadn’t installed Photoshop (or any photo editor) on my new computer yet.  I’m not very good with PS, but I still prefer to use what I paid for 5 years ago.  :P The top of my Pillow Seat has been completed! It…

Blue Pillow Seat (1)

I’ve really come to love the “freedom movement” that I’ve been immersed in recently – good vibes, balanced body, enjoy the wonders of nature – and I’ve gotten a little addicted to the things at a store called Earthbound Trading Co.  They have a large, ever-changing variety of things and they recently got some new…

That Time Krissye Made Curtains

Our apartment has a very… interesting… fashion sense.  Between the Sailor Moon Crystal art prints in the hallway, the blood tubes and IV bags in the living room, and the grand wall of posters in the dining room, our windows were looking a tad underappreciated. I’ve “made curtains” before (they were super ugly and ragged), but…

Project: Her Mother’s Afghan (1)

I have been working toward getting a certification in Phlebotomy the last year and, last Friday, I finally finished!  We had six weeks of classes and six weeks of clinicals; to get the certification, we had to have 100 venipuncture attempts (“sticks”) and we were told to hold onto our needle caps to keep track of…

Project: Alcohol Cabinet

Thanks to the use of my new power saw (yay!), I have been wonderfully productive in my construction exploits today.  I added a small aesthetic addition to the Mantle, put up the kitchen utensil hanger, and (barring some aesthetic finishes) completed Rysa’s alcohol cabinet! I bored some 1/2″ holes at measured spots in the shelf,…

Updates/Upcoming Projects

It’s been a bit, so I thought I’d just write an update on what is to come in my projects. It’s that special time of year when hardworking US citizens await their tax returns.  Once I get this, I am going to buy a Jigsaw hand saw so I can continue working on the Mantle…
