Pinterest Dress 60

20 Aug

Spent yesterday grocery shopping from about 5pm until midnight, that is. We had to hit about four stores to get everything, but we should be set for two weeks. Just as well we get used to that if we’re planning to move to BFE Iowa in a year or so. That’s how you have to do it there.

Hubby was an ass all day yesterday because he is working a double today (his idea) and feels under appreciated, but I am not in the mood to coddle him. Sometimes it’s like “grow up”. No one gets accolades for doing what they’re supposed to do. No one claps me on the back and makes a gushing big deal because I do the dishes or pick up the house or work on book covers or format documents or tidy the patio or water the plants or do laundry or… the list goes on and it gets no accolades, no high fives, and no “aw, poor Jo.” Sometimes I get tired of doing it for him all the time.

Enough of my domestic affairs. Today’s dress is for Katelina  (You can get her here).

Here’s the pin.

It makes me think of St. Patrick’s day, but i like it. I imagine Katelina borrowed it from Torina.

Off to work, though I feel like **** today. Hope you’re all doing better.

It should have been Thane today, but instead I found a cool top, so I gave it to Katelina because she kind of gets cheated out of the cool clothes because, I admit, I like Jo better. Unrealistic bodies are always better than more realistic ones.

Not much here. My net was crawling yesterday so I didn’t get anything done. need to knuckle down and get to it today. I did get my blog hop post up – you can enter to win a pair of margarita glasses and a tin if lime flavored salt – http://joleenenaylor.wordpress.com/2013/08/11/summer-of-love-blog-hop/ – there’s an excerpt of what is going to be my sixth book, if I ever get to work on it

Anyway, today’s dress is for Katelina  (You can get her here). It doesn’t look quite like the pin, but it’s close enough.

Here’s the pin.

I think her hair turned out pretty good for a change, and her feet were not too bad. Yes, I still hate her feet, lol!

Nothing of any real interest to say, so will close this and go have some lunch. Have a good one!

I think the computer is finally fixed – yay! It passed all the scans and so far *knock wood* has not frozen up. I finally had to use the check disk repair to fix the bad sectors left over from the malware debacle. Hubby has been warned against ever installing anything again, which he’s crabby about and I’m sure he’ll ignore, but more importantly I am back in business, laptop wise.

Whoo-hoo!

I’ve spent the last couple of days in Little House on the Prairie land. I sewed at a set of curtains (they are not done as the sewing machine bobbin went *kersnap* and so needs glued back on – this is a reoccurring issue), made drop donuts, painted a birdhouse and otherwise did laundry and cleaned. I feel very domestic. It’s scary.

Anyway, today’s dress is for Katelina  (You can get her here). I have lost the pin number as I actually drew this a couple days ago because I was hoping to get it colored and uploaded despite the mess.

This could also have come from Jesslynn. It’s too modest for Torina, that’s for sure.

All right, I have lots to work on, so have to go. Have a good day, all!

PS. On a funny note, WordPress has the “recommendations” box on the lower left that shows you related articles and CC media that “has to do with” your blog post so that you can insert relevant photos and such. Anyway, the top suggested media images are all my own – ha ha! It’s Jorick, Katelina and my Super Poke Pet dressed up as Jorick. Sorry, I just thought that was funny.

Hubby is off today, so I am running very late. Today’s baking experiment was chocolate chunk brownies, though instead of chunks we used milk chocolate chips (because I had a bag in the cupboard) and they turned out okay. Think they could have cooked a little less, though, but otherwise all was good.

the big news around here is we got a new patio set (yay!) today. I took pics but haven’t taken them off or uploaded them yet (Flickr was down all day for maintenance anyway). The patio looks much nicer now without the clunky, fifteen year old plastic table. Though my table umbrella is broke, so we need to get a piece of aluminum and hubby thinks he can fix it. We also need an umbrella base with this table, and then I will finally have my umbrella and table set up I have been waiting years for. Double yay! Why an umbrella? I don’t know. Probably a product of 80s television, but if you have a patio I think you need an umbrella’d table.

Anyway, today’s dress is for Katelina again (You can get her here). i know, I know, Thane needs some clothes, but this dress was so cool!

The engravings on the bottom of the dress came from wiki commons here, here and here. I put them on their own layer, used a “darken” layer style and then colorized them red. Took a bit to figure out but the end result was pretty snazzy, I thought.

On that note, I am outta here. Have a good one!

Not much going on in the fascinating world of Bolivar. The other night hubby and I were walking the dog when all of a sudden there was a bright blue light in the sky and this loud, electric kind of “whuuumm” noise. Then another brighter flash of light, and the noise again. Given the area, we decided it was aliens and chose not to investigate until we got close to home when we heard a bunch of sirens. Of course, now we had to know what it was (as if police cars might save us from aliens), so he grabbed the scanner while I threw the dog in the house. Turned out an electric pole on the edge of town (quite a way away from us) shorted out and caught fire. We drove by and could see the pole burning from the highway (no pics, didn’t think to grab the camera). All the streetlights and stop lights  were out, so they had to get the fire and police to do traffic control at all the major intersections… anyway, it was interesting.

The neighbors are outside breaking things. I mean that literally. They have been at it for days. Earlier they were smashing apart an old stereo. I have no idea, and I don’t want to know.

Onwards, today’s dress is for Katelina (You can get her here).

The pattern doesn’t match the pin, as you’ll notice, but I liked it anyway. I used a CC pattern by Uhuru1701 on Flickr, changed the color to blue and of course attempted the mirroring portion. As I said, it’s not the same as it would be if I had hand drawn the pattern, but I am in a bit of a hurry as I am running behind.

On that note, I am outta here. Have a good one!

It’s a fascinating thing, but I had thought of several entertaining things to talk about and now that I sit here to type something they’re all gone. Poof! Like magic. Weird, huh? Oh well, I’m not sure anyone reads these, anyway.

Have to clean the house today, edit that manuscript, work on some covers, make some blueberry sweet rolls and who knows what else. No way it can all get done in one day. *sigh*. The sweet rolls are an experiment; the recipe says to ONLY (in caps) use frozen berries, but I am using fresh-ish ones, anyway because that’s what I have. And I am skipping the lemon in the glaze.

So far it has been one of those days; I’m broke, and everything I had to get cash from is not working. For instance I have a leather jacket that’s never going to fit me again that we have planned for awhile to sell – only it’s July so no one is buying. Then I have a bunch of CDs which I set up to send to SecodSpin.com – only it cost 40$ to mail them (no joke) which is why I am broke. If I am lucky I might make 50$ off of them, so in th eend I’ll make a whopping 10%. Then the bro has a pile of college books he’s been going to sell for ages, so he said “heck, I’ll sell those” only.. It’s July and no one is buying right now! Ergh. Oh well, I’ll get a cover or  something done soon and then I’ll have some cash again.

Anyway, today’s dress is for Katelina (You can get her here).

I imagine this dress came from Torina – it looks like her speed.

And I am outta here. Have a good one!

I’m almost late today. Been working on book covers aaaaaaalllllll day, even though it’s house cleaning day, so that means after I post this I have to do my share of the cleaning. We have it divided up between the four of us where it’s not too bad, though.

I did sell three book covers today though, one for a poetry book, one for memoirs, and one for a story about an american who gets into trouble in a temple. Sent several others off for approval, so cross your fingers. Tomorrow I have a manuscript to edit and I’m hoping to get the holiday decorations disaster sorted, too. I think I need to get up earlier.

Well that was boring so on to something interesting. Today’s dress is for Katelina (You can get her here).

This is normally an outfit I would give Jo, but that’s not fair since Katelina would wear it too. I admit, I like the Jo doll better because I don’t hate her feet the way I hate Katelina’s, LOL! Okay, and I think she’s slinkier, but she’s also totally unrealistic, while Katelina is based off of a real woman (I did thin her down a bit, I admit) so i guess it shows I like the slinky fantasy world better than reality.

Gee, not much of a revelation 😉

Hubby is home. Off to walk the dog and then clean. Have a good night, all!
