A Calm Week

Yesterday was as calm as the two days before and I LOVED it!

CT was just as excited about Play-Doh the second day as she was the first. She loved the tools we bought her and all the new colors. She figured out halfway through the day that you could mix the colors and make cool caterpillars.

I also finished up a bunch of sculpting, but I forgot to take photos! Of course! I was really happy with two of the finished pieces and I’ve already started the process of making molds. As always, I will document it all and share it here.

CT has really been into the idea of decorating lately. I guess she watches me do it all the time and figures it’s normal. She really wants a purple room with lots of frames on the wall. If it will make her like her room more, why not? We hope to stop by Sherwin Williams this weekend to pick up the purple paint (their having 30% off paint the 5th thru the 8th). Plus I have some plans for storage and seating.

I’ve also been working on some cross stitch pieces to frame. I love to cross stitch. CT really likes the new My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic show, so I bought some patterns off Etsy and have been working a little bit at a time while watching TV. Multi Tasking!!

That’s another thing I’ve been doing. I’m finally catching up on TV shows that we recorded. I’m almost ready for the Fall season!!

Sculpey vs. Play-Doh

I’ve decided to take this week as a calm week. A week where the only deadlines I have are shipping orders and making lunch! I figured I’d work on some projects that I’ve been meaning to do. Monday I started cleaning my workroom (I hope to have photos once I’m done), and yesterday CT and I sculpted.

I’ve been itching to make some resin figures to paint. It’s been on my to do list for years. Finally a few months ago I decided that I need to stop saying I’m going to do it, and just do it!! My plans got put to the side quite a few times, but yesterday I finally sat down and sculpted. I’m not 100% excited about what I made, but it’s a good start. I finished an entire figure, a little rag doll looking figure to be exact. I’m planning on sanding and sealing the figure today and HOPEFULLY make a mold and a test cast by Friday. Plans always change, but I really hope I can keep to these!!

Usually when I do anything work related CT doesn’t care. Today was different, she was super interested. So I set up a little work area for her to play at too. She never really liked Play-Doh, it always grossed her out. I figured she might go for it this time because I was doing something similar.

She LOVED it!! She actually spent FOUR HOURS playing with one little tub of Play-Doh. Purple to be exact. We only have one color since she never showed interest. She has never, ever, sat for that long to play with anything!! I got a lot finished and she perfected the art of making Play-Doh caterpillars and mustaches. You can even see one of her mustache creations below.

We went by Target last night and picked up a few more colors plus some little Play-Doh ”tools”. CT was really excited when she went to bed last night because her plans for today are to play with PINK, not purple. haha. I wish I could have days where that’s the only thing I need to do!!
