Friday, Saturday and Sunday Make up blog!

Wow I am sorry about that everyone. I have been so busy with the Epic Pokemon Cross Stitch, and my office that I forgot to post things for you all. First off I said I would do product reviews, I have nothing right now. Not in less you want a product review of something I got MONTHS ago. But honestly I am waiting on my new shipment of items so I should have a product review in a bit. But not this week! I am sorry.

Saturday I didn't have a stressed out housewife, as I decided to close that blog and just put it here. So I am going to start with next Saturday, (I already been working on the post, you should see that next Saturday)

Today (it is Monday Morning at 3am in Winnipeg) I decided I would get a lot done and already have so much done. I started to work on my doll area again today and am working on getting the doll clothes I own hung on small doll hangers. I am trying to figure it all out as I only own four hangers, so I am looking to make more, or I just might crack and buy some. But here it is so far.

Granted I also have a product here that I could use as well. Just involves making a place to hang items with dolly clothes pins. I am still working on that.

But I did start to make a shoe organizer for my dolls.  It is almost done and I am really proud of it. So that will be hung on the ends of this rod and filled with the shoes and items I just can't hang. Like a small box for the jewelry pieces that go with the outfits there.

What else.... Oh I taught my 10 year old to cross stitch, not that she needs another crafty thing to do. But I decided what the hell I main as well teach her a great craft that keeps one busy for hours!
Here she is in her pjs on Saturday around 4pm stitching in my office beside me.

So that is basically it for now. There is a lot going on and tomorrow is a new post! Trust me you will be bombarded with things as I am home all day! YAY for Monday off of work! I need to get Monday's off as a general rule

So today I didn't do anything, at least not currently. Well no that is a lie.... I tried to sew together a hand paw and I ran into my pinky finger and stitched it. BLOODY HELL THAT HURT!

I am usually really careful with how I am working and where my hands are but I was just being stupid and missed.

So now that I have to look at the piece I bleed on to see if it is showing I decided to take a break after fixing that up.

I have a lot to do, I am currently looking for a head mask, I might have to break down and pay a friend to do it for me, and use a foam mask for this anthro character I am doing (I really didn't want to) But Maybe just maybe I can actually figure it out myself. Who knows.

Yup so nothing new on Phynix's desk today. Oh my camera is charged, this weekend Dr.who, and cross stitching. So updates on that some time.

Well off to bed I teach power point 2010 in the am! NIGHT ALL!

Paw and Paw and tail!

So On Phynix's desk today is a pattern for anthro paws, I am not sure when I will be done with it all but I am hoping that it wont take too long. I am hoping that I can finish this in the next few days and move on to other things like the head when the resin base gets here. At least that is the hope/plan.

Not much happening today due to work, and a meeting this evening for the local sci-fi fantasy convention. The next few days I have to start working on the layout of that. So my days will be long and hard.

In other news, I got my camera back today and as soon as I am done recharging the batteries I will be taking photos for you all!

Paw and paw and paws?

Virtual House Cleaning!

So today is from the desk of Phynix. These are wonderful looks into what I am doing and how I am going about doing it! Because I have no camera as it is currently stuck at work! I can't show you an progress pictures of my desk, or my projects so you get a wonderful post all about what it is I am doing with no visuals.

Today I got a bit more stitching done on Epic pokemon, and even started to take the questions I get on all sites I post to and put together a Q&A session about my stitching and how I go about dealing with certain things. So that will be fun to complete. If you have questions just leave them in the comments area. I am happy to include them in that project.

On other things of what is on my desk for the day. Virtual House Cleaning! My husband named it. Last night around midnight I decided I needed more room on my hard drives to store a new game (I didn't have enough) so on I went to start the process of clearing up space on my hard drive. I am happy to say I went from almost no space available that I now have enough to put two or three copies of the game I want on my computer. I laughed so hard at what I was able to accomplish, and I haven't done a disk clean up yet. That is just from deleting files I have no want to keep! Or files I just don't need anymore. Bonus about being an artist I will always be able to find extra room on my hard drive. I just have to be willing to delete the bad photos and art pieces I will never work on again! lol.

Any ways what is on your desk?

A little bit of everything

A post, a year in the making.

So first off I am noticing that I have no updates on the For the horde/alliance banner I was making. That is almost done. I just need to put it over a dowel and give it the tassels and it is done. But the stitching of this thing is completed, I am at the finishing stages of it. My room mate who it was made for LOVED it so much and I am looking forward to making myself on in the future. It will be great to flip it to show if I am feeling for the blue side, or the red side.

I have started a new large project The first generation of Pokemon! This project is huge, well over 30 pages of chart and takes over 100 different colours of floss. I am so happy with it and my daughter is looking forward to me being done with it. She is getting it for Christmas this year. She seems so excited by it. It is getting hard to work on it without her here though. I told her I was done with it, I gave up. So she was bummed out about it. But I have gotten most of it done without her knowledge.

This is my current set up for cross stitching. It is about midnight here when I took this but this is how I work now when working on cross stitch. In fact all my office has been changed around a lot. I moved all the desks around and just finishing to cleaning. So you will all get to see that soon.

Other things I am happy about is the dolls I am almost done with face ups and clothing we will be working with them, they also have a better display they are on. I can't wait to show that off nither. But for now, I am going to go back to work on this pokemon project.

So happy to be back. See you all tomorrow.

New battle plan

So with my year hiatus, I decided to read through all my old posts and then I found my original schedual of things. Here is what it was!
Monday, Wednesday, Friday = Art around the Inter-webs.
Tuesday, Thursday = Phynix's Desk
Saturday = news, reviews, and general discussions. 
So I decided it is time to revamp my day to day business plan.

Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday = Phynix's Desk
Thursday = Product Review
Saturday = Stressed out House Wife
Sunday = Make up day.... what I want!

what you think?
