I just returned from a lovely steampunk weekend at the Atlanta Steampunk Expo. It is the second year of this convention, and while it is small, it is certainly a lot of fun. I spent time with some good friends and saw some amazing creations. I just wish I had
 had more money to spend there!

Well, the past few days have been extraordinary. On Tuesday my father-in-law went to see a skin doctor about the cancer on his head. It's a long sordid tale of why the cancer has been sitting on his for more than a year and quite likely there will be legal action. But as a good friend says, "don't repaint the kitchen when the kitchen is on fire. Put the fire out first"! So happy to report that on Tuesday, every bit of cancer was removed from my father-in-law and he is CANCER FREE! Cancer has decimated my family over the past two decades so this is a big WIN.

Then Yesterday, after waiting for more than a year to receive zoning approval for converting our car port into enclosed addition we finally went before the county board and got unanimous approval to proceed. This again, has been a long sordid tale with many hiccups and false starts so finally getting the stamp of approval is a big WIN.

I am very very grateful for this week.

Went with a friend to a fabric and craft place and had a great time - the only time we stopped talking was to eat and while paying for the inordinately large amounts of material, trimmings and buttons we bought!

We have new tile floors! This makes me so happy because the carpet we had was old and gross, the tile is the type that looks like wood, ours is light grey. It's so much nicer than carpet!  I've been joking that I must be middle aged now because I find house renovation exciting...

I can understand this.
Bought my house 10 years ago.
Just 6 fuses.
(house is 160 m^2 plus 60 m^3 cellar).
We tore out every.single.wire. as they were too thin partly aluminum, bakelite junction boxes,....and of course nothing had been documented.
It is exciting to finish a job like this and then have everything up to date and documented.
Same for the water pipes. Copper, lead, plastic, extended and rebuilt countless times.
All pipes up to the entry point went out.
Before, the shower on the first floor did not have much pressure, now, even with a pressure-limiter installed at the entry point to the house there is plenty of pressure in this shower.
Renovation is exciting!
Sense of achievement.

Renovations in your own house is exciting! Not only does it improve your quality of life, but it also adds value to your principle asset - good all round!

I can hardly wait to be able to afford the next round, although solar power will be going up soon.

After five and a half years working there, I resigned last Monday (07/01/19).  I start my new job (same general area but much more varied work and opportunities for career progression) in early February.

I got the laser cutter to work for me and finally got a set of my star coaster puzzle set to physically play with. It's part of a project I've been doing since new years. I'm writing a book, creating an animation, creating a board game, making a product (the patriotic red white and blue star puzzle coasters), and will soon be uploading mukbang (based on korean style meal vlogging), creating artwork, and creating a video game. Every day I do an update video and try and show my progress.

It's partly because I create regular edited videos with prompts for other creators to use in making something creative, and it would be helpful to also see how to go from idea to item for sale in each those catagories that I make my videos in. It's also partly because: how awesome would it be to reach the end of this year and be able to look back and say I have multiple books, short films, board games, products, artworks, and video games that people can buy online.

It's crazy to realize the amount that is going on in my life right now, I feel like it's already april. I've got a rough draft on my book that needs going over, and I'm hoping to finish the board game art this week and put it on my website where people can download it and print it out to play with friends. I chose to do an animated video this time so it might be a few more weeks for that. But tonight I've got a product I can make several of and be able to sell as a product online.

I broke out the charcoal for the first live creating art episode of the week. It's nice to be back at the easel again. I'm not saying it's good, but I did enjoy making it. (a sumi-e japanese landscape style piece made with charcoal on sketch paper.

That is lovely, rovingjack! Grin
Must admit, my fingers are starting to itch for the brush & palette knife! Haven't done any painting for a while - it will be nice to get back into it, but, having left my stuff at an art workshop for a bit too long, much of my paint and many of my brushes were pillaged before I was able to retrieve them!
