Soo.... my last journal was a long list of plans for the summer... so far I've accomplished pretty much none of what I wanted to x.x I did make a wig for Lydia however... but it still needs some fixing before I can use it in the photoshoot that I literally only have two weeks left to do before the Iplehouse photo story contest is over O.o...
This also means I have no time to make Lydia's period clothing that I'd planned on using in the photoshoot.... let alone Henry's x.x So what I'm going to do is try to at least make her stuff... hopefully plan on taking out the sewing machine this weekend and learning how to use it and then sit down and cut out all the patterns I need for her undergarments... main concern is the skirt to her dress and the petticoats since I dont have a pattern for any of that stuff... so I'm utterly lost Bodice shouldn't be too hard... and I have patterns for her chemise, drawers, and Corset so that's good there. Needless to say... if I dont learn how to use this sewing machine fast, I am screwed. I dont have time to hand sew everything x.x
I also started making jewelry but gave up before the first necklace was completed because I didnt like how it was looking and am utterly frustrated with the elastic cord meant for use with making such things since I've never used it before. I'm hoping to jump back on this project soon however... but probably not until after the photo story stuff is completed. I also need to make some herbs from clay for the photo story too and then blush all of them and put them in the little glass jars I bought for this reason. I also have a book case to build. I was hoping to have an arm chair or at least a dining table and one chair for this photo contest but I dont think I have time to build any of that stuff. Plus I dont have any fabric for upholstery either. I guess I will just have to cut some ideas out of the photo shoot and work with what I've got.
Main things I need to get done are Lydia's wig, clothes, a cape and the jars and bookcase. If I can get that stuff done I might be okay.... but I have to make sure to leave myself a few days to edit all the photos, downsize them to the correct size, and write up the story meant to go with them x.x I also need to give Lydia and Henry some hand blushing and I wanted to blush Henry's torso too but I dont know if I'll get a chance. The weather hasnt been cooperating lately :/
Other than BJD stuff.... I'm also painting a portrait of Miley Cyrus for a new friend. I'm hoping to have that done in the next day or so... hopefully before the weekend so I can work on my bjd stuff this weekend.
I am starting to get a little stressed out because fall semester starts the 17th? (I think) of August.... so I only have roughly 5 weeks left of summer! Not enough time to finish projects x.x plus I have a ton of other stuff to worry about right now too. ugh. But only two more semesters and then I will have my associates degree!!! Cant wait
