So, in my last post I made mention of [livejournal.com profile] renegadewriter8 and their wishlist, from which I created my own.

Since I'm feeling in a better headspace this Christmas, I decided to play elf for one of their requests. As such, I've started work on a painting of a dragon. The final piece will actually be part of a triptych set. However only the first sketch is complete. It'll be going up on my Dev.art account probably tomorrow. The next two sketches should be complete after Christmas, with the paintings following shortly after. The finished paintings won't be going up until all are done, after which I'll post them to RW8.

This present has so inspired me, I'm planning to complete a couple of mini diptychs, and will be gifting them to my mum as one of her presents.
Nothing says "You're loved/liked/wanted" like a homemade gift.

I'm feeling really good right now.

In other projects, I still need to finish knitting my scarf/wrap, finish sewing my Kanzeon(Saiyuki) cosplay, and at long last start on my kimono.

[livejournal.com profile] satsuki_samurai's skirt that I'm modifying is gonna be a piece of cake - the only hard part is getting her in for a fitting.

Speaking of knitting - does anyone else find that it's a mindless, soothing task? Almost meditative?

Going back to gifts and presents I'd like - I recently remembered about the Alienware Laptops and PC's I saw in JB Hi-Fi....I WANT ONE!!!!!!!!!!
It'd be perfect for PC gaming - plenty of graphics-devoted hardware, a substantial HD and RAM for storage and active games, Augh, it's just PERFECT - and I'd finally be able to play WoW without worrying about it being too Graphics-heavy or not having enough diskspace.

Yup, knitting is so soothing and relaxing to me. Its no surprise that when my father in law is visiting I get a LOT of it done...

Knitting is actually a relatively recent achievement/pasttime for me. For a long time I couldn't seem to get my stitches straight(I still have trouble every so often) so I only really got into it this year.

It's been a while since we've contacted each other - what do you think of the changes I've made on my journal?

I like those too, the whole theme you have going on works nicely.

Thank you very much! I was bored one day, and felt that my journal could use a bit of a spruce-up XD
