My apologies for the lack of updates today… I’ve been bedridden with a severely sore throat, congestion, coughing, the works. 🙁 I’m sipping some green tea with a spot of honey now, so it feels a bit better at the moment.
My day has not been entirely unproductive, however! I began working on an embroidered bag, until I grew exhausted. :/ I managed to beat level 65 of Candy Crush (FINALLY!) — It only took about a month. Sheesh…. I love that game, but I hate that game. Now I’m just waiting for FaceBook friends to lend a hand so that I may pass to the next section.
In other news, those geeky soaps I’ve been working on were finished earlier this week & are curing now.
Now that I’m feeling a bit better — at least enough to sit up, haha! — I’ve been painting another robot themed work. This one is sort of a robotic take on the art nouveau style, sort of steam punkish, if you will.
Here’s a teensy preview 😉
Before I got suddenly sick yesterday, I had made a fantastic birthday card & birthday button for my favourite co-worker, Mrs. Debbie. She seemed quite pleased with them!! She’s very in to flowers, so I used a photo I had taken of a rose from the Ft. Worth botanical gardens & then added “kawaii” graphics using the Pri Pri Marron app. (Even though the graphics themselves aren’t of my own design, I’m still the one who “composed” the layout & design, so I’m totally allowed to still take pride in it! xD ) Here’s what I came up with:
And here is the adorable button!
(I got excited & made the button part before letting the glue fully dry…whoops!)
(Cough-cough!) Okay…I should finish my tea & rest more.
