I'm only slightly sidetracked by video games lately (finished the newest Ratchet & Clank game this weekend already)...somehow I managed to make another swan mask.
It's up in Etsy.
I like it because aside from being a pretty cool swan, it also makes a pretty interestingly-shaped mask. All the feathers splayed out in a spray...kinda neat. Made me think of my fish (I have a male crowntail betta with really amazing fins...he looks just like this) and so in a fit of creativity I designed a new fighting fish mask that takes advantage of those frilly fins. I just pulled it out of the oven this minute in fact...it's going to be great, I can already tell & it's not even painted yet. I really should have done a second one at the same time because I bet it'll go really quickly in my shop.
Between money I've saved & a small loan, it'll be no problem paying for it. I guess I can forget the trip to Japan I was saving for...this is more important though & Greg really needs this car. It feels awesome knowing I can afford to do something like this. And what a great wife am I? Happy Valentine's day dear...here's your car. ^__^
