Okay. Check cleared and home insurance bought. All that's left at this point is the screaming...I mean the final loan paperwork.
So if all goes on schedule, the keys will be in our hands by the end of the day on Thursday. And Max goes in to be Mr fix-it and spruce some things up while I'm at Gathering.To Do List on House BIG stuff (immediate):
Fix some wiring
scrape off popcorn cealing from common areas
Re-finish cealing in common areas
Tear out carpeting
Put in new flooring
Get some appliances
drive up north to pick up furnature hand me downs
Move our crapTo Do on House LITTLE stuff (Over time):
Re-grout parts of the tub
Get some new (non 70's chic) light fixtures
Get Ginormous fish tank cycled and ready to go for the Mollies.
Mow the freakin lawn finally!...its been driving me a bit crazy.
Get the herb garden and vegatable garden started
Watch and snicker as Max becomes a snail rancher...don't ask.
We're planning on keeping the common rooms (living room/dinning room and game room) nutral in color and doing the decor in a a sudo victorian/steampunk style...obviously this will come with time. *L*
The bedroom I'm doing in all India inspired colors with dark blue walls. Blue and orange...maw hahaha....but more than just blue and orange probably.
The office is Max's other domain so he'll probably go victorian/steampunk in there as well with dark green walls.
The guestroom and my studio are mine mine mine! My studio space is going to eventually be a cross between Midcentury Mod and BoHo Chic.
The guest room? Eh no clue. It'll come to me eventually.
The Kitchen is whatever Max wants.
This is mostly us chatting and fantasizing about what we're going to do with the place. Granted, this will all be a work in progress for a very long time but Its still fun to come up with some sort of game plan.
We already are planning to have Thanksgiving as well as the HouseHold Halloween party at our place this year. MAW HAHAHAHA! Halloween Decorations!!!!
Am I excited?
Oh...a wee bit.

-Gathering is this week! I'll be taking off to LA on Thursday to meet with the rest of the staff for last minute hooha. I'm pretty much ready to go with the exception of a couple little things. I also will have all new art in the show so...if you want to buy...I won't stop ya...just sayin'.
But I am looking forward to seeing friends I haven't seen in ages since I was AWOL for 07 and 08 due to saving up for the wedding. If you're going to Gathering drop by the art room for a hello! Tigs? Shaun? You have no choice in the matter.;)
Alas, this year will be my first year that I go without a costume. I just didn't have the cash/time for cosplay this year. But I'm considering putting on my LBD and painting a fox over my eye and go as "cocktail hour Fox" or something. *LOL* Not sure yet. Anyone wanna go as "cocktail hour" Xanatos with me?Come to my Panels!
I'll be doing Costuming 101 and focusing on how to make armor out of craft foam and felt!
Project Rungarg is going to be Hilarious! Please participate and make costumes out of house hold objects! The winner gets a shiney ribbon!RANDOM CINDY IS RANDOM.
-After Max and I are moved in and settled in the house I plan to get back into my Illumination lessons and my garb making adventures. I want to get back into the groove of creative things again since this summer was so crazy with...well...name it. I do want to make another Italian Ren, this time in green. I also want to EVENTUALLY try my hands at an Elizabethan. THAT I assure you will be a long on going project instead of the usual couple day ones. When I do get started, progress will of course be on costumenonsense
. Though right now my poor blog is playing dormant since I really have nothing worth showing.
-I decided that I'm going to learn how to embroider. I suddenly got the bug up my butt to learn. Anyone know of any good books for me to check out about begining embroidery? I honestly have no clue where to start with this and I've been really eager to learn...yet never have time for classes. DOH!
Aaaand...thats all I have to say at the moment. CHEERS!
