I'm still alive(!!!)... albeit alternately busy and lazy... thus explaining the long silence and lack of cutie pie pictures, both of the two- and four-legged kind.
We'll just cover the 'busy' portion of things, since there's not much 'xplaining to do for the 'lazy' portion. LOL!!!
Sometime over the last couple of months, I've finished my requirements to become both a Notary Public and a Notary Signing Agent. Yippee!! I've started training for mortgage closings and the like and since this is a job that allows me to set my own hours, I'm looking forward to it working out nicely.
Crafted Monkette a honey of an amulet on the third try which gave me a huge DPS (damage) boost. (To give an example of how awesome this was, some people have crafted a few hundred amulets and haven't come close to the stats on this one.)
I have crafted more since then as well, but nothing has been as good. :( Why keep trying, you ask? Well, see how the amulet has lightning resist? That's the wrong resist for Monkette since she stacks cold resist!!! Booo-hoooo! :( A friend called me picky. Surely, he jests!!! How is wanting perfection, picky?? Am I right or am I right? I'm right. LOL!!!
The week after IHSW, I finally put needle and thread to fabric and finished Lady A's dress. I'm so loving her purple dress!! :D I've left out some of the colors in in the round blobs and will wait till I get the beads to decide on the floss colors for those areas.
This past weekend, I finished her bodice and started on the sash and gloves. I'll be working on these portions in tandem since they have the same colors. Hopefully, it won't take me too long before I get to her face though I still haven't decided on the final face as yet.
I think that's about it from me for now. Since you guys have had to share me for so long with D3, I thought I'd leave you with a new picture of Monkette. :D
