I cannot believe, well maybe I can, that it has been 6 months since I recently posted something to my blog. Sometimes I truly cannot believe how much time can fly, especially when tangled by major life events.
Where have I been over the last few months? Well the answer is simple life has truly taken me by storm. We have accepted a new job for my husband, packed up, moved twice (one temporary living), sold a house, bought a house, had a baby, lost a beloved family member, shipped a world wide launch to a game I was working on and adapting to our whole new world and routine. Let’s just say I’m ready for a bit less life events and more just sitting at my hobby space and painting away at projects.
Although life has taken hold I haven’t stopped painting and trying to maintain momentum, although not what i’d like it to be its still forward.
Saying Goodbye to My Old Space & Community
While I absolutely loved my old hobby space. It was definitely cramped and a bit noisy. I made do with the space I had available and it was definitely used as you can tell. One of my favorite things about moving is that I was promised I get my own dedicated office and hobby room. No longer will I share with our TV, Laundry room and guest bedroom!
However in order to move it required a lot of organizing, getting rid of old things and cleaning. Thank goodness my local game store let me set out a pile of 3D prints and models I no longer wanted in wanted in my collection.
I even gave a new painter my old 3d printed paint racks as I wanted to upgrade in the new space. I’m glad they will see another life (paint not included)
The biggest thing I’m going to miss about my area is how amazing and wonderful the Age of Sigmar community is in Nashville. If you ever go through town on a Tuesday night the Game Keep is where it is out.
Hobby Space Evolution
There was a very long period of time when I had all kinds of temporary painting setups. I will say that those who have to paint at a kitchen table, clean up, put it away or have temporary setups I feel for you. I was starting to go crazy myself not having a consistent meditative space.
I couldn’t articulate how excited I was to have a massive clean slate for my new space.
Although far from done I have been making significant progress on the new space.
Also its not complete without some progress on the painting desk. Including a notable completion of 60 hobgrots for my Kruelboyz army, significant progress on 30 gutrippaz and plenty of starts on others like my Gobsprakk and Frost Giant
Completed Projects: 60 Hobgrots
I am sorry that I have been gone so long. I’ve deeply missed writing for the site and putting it back on the regular routine.
What have you been up to in the last 6 months?
Thinking about starting to 3D print on commission? Here is my top 10 things to consider before accepting a print commission.
I am a crafter who doesn’t know how to do just one thing at a time. Join me as I share a bit of the behind the scenes and share truly the State of the Crazy.
Now that 2022 has come to a close. I take the time to go through my last year’s hobby goals and decide if I achieved all that I set out to do.
