Farewell my Comic-Con

I didn't get to go to Comic Con this year. Silly me, I forgot to pre-register. It was weird for people to be going to Comic Con without me! I didn't have a costume anyway.

I just put together this Ikea shelf for all of our action figures, some from Comic Con's past. We had a lot of fun arranging them... check out Spiderman and Vash on the left.

We still managed to do something g33ky this weekend... Geoff and I went to Chinatown, and he bought a Final Fantasy Mini figure. He is completely obsessed with them. He got Tifa. Here she is, waiting to go up on the shelf.

Tell me about Comic Con. Was it awesome? Or was it overrun with tweeny Twilight fan girls??

Little facelift

Did a little background change on the website. I love the linen background on Design*Sponge so I did my own take.

I think Wednesday really, really is my last day of work, as I've run out of things to do. More blogging soon?

Surprises in the Closet

Hello everybody. It has been a while. I've been very busy... if you want to see what I've been crafting these past few months, go see G-Force :)

I have been doing some crazy spring... well, summer cleaning. While manically going through my bedroom closet, I found an old shoebox, and in that shoebox was my wedding bouquet, all nicely dried and preserved by my cousin. Here is a picture of me, my cousin Dagmar, and my bouquet.

The bouquet was in surprisingly good shape. Before I left for my honeymoon (three years ago!) I asked my cousin, my Maid of Honor, to "take care" of the bouquet for me. I basically just meant hang it upside down for me and see if it dries out, I don't know. But I was being, ahem, kind of a "bride" that week, so I think Dagmar was a little scared of me. And so she did a really great job drying out my bouquet. I think she used the spray and everything.

So I finally pulled out that shoebox, and did something with my bouquet.

I hope you are pleased Dagmar! I think it looks great. I had this shadowbox lying around that I had never used, but it was medium oak which did not work in my bedroom. I bought some Folk Arts "warm white" paint and decided to go Shabby Chic with it. Because what is more Shabby Chic than dried flowers?

This Friday should be my last day of work, probably for a long time. Hope to blog again soon!
