So, for anyone who's keeping track, I have moved. Not too far, only about fifteen minutes from where I was living before, but rent is tons cheaper, I have more space, only one roommate, and it's right across the street from the place I do summer theatre.
Lately, I've been reading about how to make perfume. I know, I know, we went over how I'm ALWAYS reading about how to do something new, but I like to learn. In any case, I think my summer project (along with getting in shape and learning to be a tumbler) is to start making my own perfume blends. It's a fairly straightforward process, it just takes a bit of time...but most things that are worth it do. I'll be sure to keep everyone updated on how things go!
I've also been on the "chain mail as jewelery" train lately, and am almost finished with a necklace I'm making a friend for her birthday. It's very calming to make chains. Almost...meditative, in fact. Of course, I'll get into my Zen groove and then my roommate's bird will squawk because I'm not paying any attention to it and scare the crud out of me.
I hate that bird...maybe I should start looking into how to do taxidermy?
