Moving Part 1

Posted in Apartment, Lolz at 1:56 pm by wangeli

I want to sum up how my moving has been going.

Atlanta to Memphis is a 7 hour drive… through all of Alabama and most of Mississippi.
I have a cat – an old cankerous cat that doesn’t like changes to her routine.
It was a 7 hour drive with a very unhappy cat.

Now I need drugs.

The Best Laid Plans

Posted in Apartment, Big Changes, Dragon Con 2012, Happy News, Steampunk tagged , at 3:55 pm by wangeli

Normally by this point in time, I’d be blogging madly about the outfits I’m making for DragonCon and all of my big plans for that weekend. But instead – I moved to a different state.

I’m going to go to DragonCon, but the move has eaten up most of my money and all of my time – so it’s a reuse and redo D*C for me. And since I won’t have a hotel room – I can’t have 60 outfits to look all cute in. Even more sadness 😦

But don’t worry friends and fans, I’ll still have some posts about D*C, some outfits to show off and all of that other stuff… 🙂

And I’m steampunking my new apartment – mostly because my boyfriend doesn’t care what I do as long as I don’t spend him broke. So budget steampunking it is!

You can steampunk anything!

New Couch

Posted in Apartment, Crafty Liz at 4:41 am by wangeli

So Laura was driving home from work the other day and saw a couch on the curb. She knew I got rid of my last couch and totally needed a new one… and this one looked pretty steampunky – with a little imagination.

Well the stars aligned and a few friends helped me grab the couch from the side of the road. We did a little googling and found it that before its curb days, it was actually a very nice couch. And expensive. It was from the Horchow collection.

So now that we’ve got it home – I just need to get it some TLC. But that I mean I need to rip it apart and figure out what is still usable. Oh yeah and how to reupholster a couch. So you’ll see how that goes, because the instructions say I should take lots of pictures. Mostly so I know what went were.

Okay – so here is the couch.. as it was and as it is. I think If the foam isn’t filled with raccoons then I might have a really nice place to sit.

First New Home Purchase

Posted in Apartment at 2:26 am by wangeli

So my new apartment has metal cabinets in the kitchen. It works with my steampunkiness, but doesn’t really have any visual appeal. And I love to cook so I want my kitchen to look nice. Normally, I would just throw my hands up in the air and say “I’ll live with it”. But I found a great new site (And my first purchase for my new home) thanks to googling Cute Shelf papers. Thanks interwebz for giving me the answer without having a ask a question.

This totally seemed like a misdirection at first, but once I started checking out the paper they offered – I found paper that made me want to look into my cabinets. So after hours of deliberation, I finally picked 2 that I liked. Say hello to the inside of my kitchen cabinets.

Happy Days are here! Again!

Ahh there is something about Spring… I’m drugged to the hilt with my allergy medicine! There is Spring in the Air. And I’ve started a new job.

I love my new job – of course, they give me snacks and sodas! And they play with Nerf guns!! And their office is totally steampunk. It is awesome!! But enough about that… seriously – there is more good news.

So… After a while of floating on Laura’s couch and looking, but not loving, new apartments – I’ve finally found a new place. So in the future, I will have a new apartment. What does that mean for you? It totally means that you’re going to get some new decorating posts! And since Laura isn’t pushing me out the door (Yet), I can slowly move in. Yippee!! Maybe I’ll steampunk my new place… maybe…

So look forward to that readers!

Home, Clean Home

Posted in Apartment at 1:16 am by wangeli

Okay – I hate cleaning my house. I really hate vacuuming, it’s loud, heavy and a pain in the butt. As I was cleaning this week, Pepper made her feelings on cleaning very, very clear.

My Urban Oasis!

Posted in Apartment at 4:49 pm by wangeli

So while I was at work today, Andrew hung the extremely complicated curtains on the patio… it’s perfect! The dark curtains shut out some of the noise and a lot of the visual distraction of cars and pedestrians. So I guess I need to clean up my patio and take a few pics?? Look for that some time next week.

Yard Sale!

Posted in Apartment at 10:13 pm by wangeli

It’s time to be proactive… I’ve got a bunch of stuff that I want to get rid of and I need money… it’s time to have a yard sale.

Since I don’t actually have a yard to sell in, I will have a prop my door open and come inside to buy my stuff sale. That doesn’t fit as well on a sign, but that’s what it is.

So if you live in the Atlanta area, or know someone who needs furniture, clothes or a cat bowl – give me a holler! There’s a sale going on this weekend.

And if you’re just a friend or family member – aren’t you proud of me?? Getting rid of stuff and making some money. I’m proud of me too.

Okay I still haven’t done anything but move boxes back and forth. But at least I can show you how my new apartment looks before I fill it with stuff.
