One More Day

One more day and we will have left this darkest of months behind us. It's sad really with valentines in the middle you would think that February would be a month of light-hearted joy but it really isn't.

I don't blame February for its bad rep, it is its placement in that time between the new year and warmer weather that makes it difficult I think. Even before it gets here we are tired of the snow and the cold which makes it feel colder and darker. Or maybe it just feels that way to me.

I thought maybe I would share some of my crafting efforts this month though I'll be honest I didn't do much.
Hearts. I like the big one best

Tree of Love: So simple sticky foam hearts & pipe cleaners

Valentines Vignette

A Warlock at Work

The Pirate one I think you have seen before, still working on the skull problem. The Valentines one just came together one day. That's a heart in the background, it was the first one I made & it was difficult.

"A Warlock at Work" is about 10 years old, it was the first room box I made. I made it as a gift for the Professor, (Warlock is his other handle), and it has been sitting in his closet where he could see it every day but he had to move it recently and it came apart in his hands so he brought it to me to repair. I've only reaffixed the back two walls, the decorations need to be glued down as well & the plexie glass put back in.

It's funny I got told that someone would pay money for it, I don't think it is all that good but it was nice to hear. Got me to thinking maybe it's time I made a new one.

The Lecture Vignette
I am working with this set separately. It isn't quite Lego so I mean to use it as a backdrop for several vignettes in my head that need a neutral background to better show the mini-figs in various places. This, of course, is a basic Lecture Theatre but I have other ideas I just got to plan them out

National Make a Friend Day

I am not very good at making friends or keeping them it seems. I do not go outside much, in fact I hardly leave my home unless it is family related. That makes it hard especially since friends expect you to come to them at least once in a while and I find I can't. If it were simply a matter of laziness it would be understandable but it isn't. Some days I can't even open the door to let in some fresh air. I do not know where the fear comes from I just know that that is what I feel when I think about going outside most of the time. Agoraphobia: Triggers for this anxiety may include wide-open spaces, crowds (social anxiety), or traveling (even short distances). Agoraphobia is often, but not always, compounded by a  fear  of social embarrassment, as the agoraphobic  fears  the onset of a panic attack and appearing distraught in public. Causes: Genetic and environmental factors Symptoms: Anxiety in situations perceived to be unsafe, panic attacks Treatment:

My Fair Lady

Eliza Doolittle Day is celebrated by fans of the musical  My Fair Lady , a musical based off of George Bernard Shaw's 1912 play  Pygmalion . In the musical, Eliza Doolittle is a  Cockney  flower girl who wants to learn to speak properly. At the time the story takes place, proper speech was a symbol of upward mobility and education. Eliza meets Professor Henry Higgins in  Covent Garden  and he agrees to give her  elocution  lessons. Higgins believes he can transform her from someone who uses words like "ain't" to someone who can fit in with London's elite. In the musical, Eliza dreams of meeting the king. She sings a song, "Just You Wait," to share her thoughts. It is in the song that the date for Eliza Doolittle Day comes from: One day I’ll be famous! I’ll be proper and prim; Go to St. James so often I will call it St. Jim! One evening the king will say: 'Oh, Liza, old thing, I want all of England your praises to sing. Next week on the twentieth of M

Emotional Intelligence - What it is?

 F or those unfamiliar, emotional intelligence is a self-governing initiative to make healthy assessments about how our minds influence quality   behaviour . Such assessments help us to better understand our minds and reduce emotions harmful, yet natural effect on our thoughts and   behaviour . Like the sensory systems, the emotional coping mechanisms you have are not good or bad mostly they just need retuning or at least mine does. Over the next 4 weeks, I'll be looking into each section of Emotional Intelligence and sharing what I find with you. Self-Awareness: The core of Emotional Intelligence is self-awareness. Self-awareness is comprised of three competencies; emotional self-awareness, where you are able to read and understand your emotions as well as recognise their impact on work performance and relationships; accurate self-assessment, where you are able to give a realistic evaluation of your strengths and limitations; self-confidence, where you have a positive and strong s
