Dinner with the Mad Scientist ll and Brooklyn Limestone Feature

Hello Brooklyn Limestone readers, and those still hanging around these parts! I’ve been a reader for several years and Stefanie’s decorations|party ideas knock my socks off, and I look forward to her Halloween posts with great anticipation! When she contacted me about a feature after I left a recent comment on the blog, I couldn’t say ‘yes’ fast enough.

We’re continuing the Dinner with the Mad Scientist theme from two years ago. Most of the usual suspects have returned and we’ve collected a few new pieces since. The previous post has information on many of the details we repurposed this year. I have also updated the Aged Specimen Jar Label DIY post.

Michael came up with the idea to add some Sharpie solution to the dark green I was using for the large specimen jars and the effect is delightfully eerie. We also played with a black light behind the jars while taking a few of the photos. (more…)

Something funky in town

Hmm… despite yesterday’s YAY post, there is something funky in town. In the past week we’ve seen the power source in Michael’s computer die, his phone died (he’s eligible for his upgrade so that’s awesome), the DVD player died (bought in August), and one of the pegs broke off the thread rack while Michael was painting it yesterday. I seem to be encountering some oddness in the studio in the last day. Malkie has been hard at work trying to distract us with his utter cuteness, so I had to take a bunch of photos. He’s commandeered my ironing ham.

CUTE CAT SPAM MAKES EVERYTHING BETTER.

And one of Junior, in one of his less grumpy moments.

I’m feeling much better now.

A work in progress

I was going to wait until we tackled the closet of doom before posting the finished studio shots, but what the hell. I really loved the studio when we finished it last summer but as I hadn’t really worked long term in the space I eventually found that several things didn’t work for me. I felt confined and that I wasn’t getting much use the chalkboard because I had a hard time comfortably reaching much of the area.

This is how the studio looked way back when…

And here we are today…

I think I may have mentioned that I had fantasies of using reclaimed wood to use for the floor and I know I’ve blabbered on that my interim hopes were of painting the subfloor a gorgeous shade of deep sea blue. I was also aiming to keep this as inexpensive as possible.  (more…)

Bon Weekend with the multi-tasker.

Yes, another photo of Malkie. But he makes me take pause, literally, when his paws are all over my work.

I thought I’d throw in a little detail shot that was previously featured on The Handmade Artist. Malkie usually lends a hand while I’m drawing patterns, either for costume projects as in the photo above, or when I draw my stitching guidelines for my products.

Bon weekend and see you next week! I hope to start the week off with a feature about our amazing friend, Kirk Burkett and his mind blowing absinthe cane!

Bon Weekend – the mad scientist’s assistant.

Malkie has been thoroughly enjoying Michael’s studio.
