I'm still looking into the Etsy thing as an option. What I've been seeing with most vendors is that they are either not charging shipping, or they are rolling it into the cost of the item. Which is fine with me. It's just a matter of figuring out the cost of the shipping and whatnot. But I might pick your brain a bit about it.
Nice! Love an unusual shape to paint on

Yeah, incorporating it into the listing is the best option, because then you also get to appear on 'listings with free shipping'
Please feel free to message me any questions at all!

That's one of my best right there. My horde pieces got significantly less love.

I have about 4,000 points of Tyranids, 2,500 of Necrons, and 500-750 of BT and Orks. How many are left to paint you ask?

How rude! Wait, I think the phone is ringing...
*Smoke Bomb*




I also build and maintain high end computers for my friends and family. It's a lot more fun playing with other people's money. As for my rig, I spent far too much money on it for how little I get to use it these days. I built it for Witcher 3 about 6 years ago, but dang it if Witcher 3 on ultra isn't the prettiest game you've ever seen. It still shreds modern games too!

Sadly, most of my talents are wasted helping my mother in law or my father set up their WiFi...

I've had to show my father how to change the desktop background at least ten times. In his defense, he says he had to teach me to use a spoon and which is more complicated, a spoon or a computer?!




I also enjoy boardgames. My real life TTRPG group is taking a break between games to play Betrayal Legacy. Betrayal is still betrayal, but the legacy aspect is fascinating. We've also added a heavy layer of role-playing and a house rule the the deed holder for the house can't die of old age.

In the most recent unit, I was arrested and as soon as the cuffs clinked into place, I turned to dust at the ripe old age of 161 as the house's magic forsook me.

Good times

Video games - I'm currently drowning in the unnecessary amount of games I bought over the past 3 Steam sales. I regret nothing.

Needle felting - I tried needle felting on a whim several years ago and it's magically something I'm pretty good at. I especially enjoy making sculptures of strange or imaginary animals and insects in the style of Victorian cabinet of curiosities fodder. My favorites so far include a trophy-style jackalope head, a tiny velociraptor complete with feathers, and a series of bumblebee species with translucent paper wings mounted on a board with their scientific names. All done with wool roving and a needle. I've accidentally stabbed myself with said needle so many times.

Knitting- I learned to knit via youtube and books probably a decade ago. It's fun, but I lack the patience and attention span to make anything large or complicated. I'm currently working on a decorative pillowcase for my living room.

I would love to take up woodworking, but I've never been good at thinking in 3D. That being said, I bet the workshop smells amazing!
Only one, and we knew when we fostered her, she was likely unadoptable by anyone else. We wanted to give her a home outside of the kennel she was likely to be in the rest of her life, and we did.

I think after 4 years of fostering, we made it official.

I feel this on a spiritual level. And then when I do have time, what do I run on my i9, 2080ti? Oxygen Not Included, Pathfinder,: Kingmaker, and Stardew Valley.

I used to build high end computers for my Brother-In-Law and his friends, but he's been so busy he hasn't bothered to upgrade in a few years, which means I don't get his old stuff I miss getting 6 month old top of the line components for my computer!

Hah! I'm the say way with my computer. I first built it to play graphics-heavy
games like SQUAD and Battlefield One to play with my friend. Nowadays, I enjoy
the hell out of lower-demanding and older games. I've been dropping a lot of
time in CK2, which doesn't require a lot, as far I know, but adding
"pretty" mods look fantastic with a high-end machine.

I hope you get a cut from the labor.

Ugh, those tile spacers haunt my dreams.

My home inspector and the guy I hired to perform the wood destroying organism test, failed to tell me the master bathroom was rotted to the foundation and filled with carpenter ants before I bought the place.

Had to cut the whole thing and start over again! All tile floors and tile walls for the shower. It was a pain in the rump but I got my perfect bathroom out of the deal.

Two walk in closets in the master bath is the only way to live folks. As is a deep soaking tub.

I've really wanted to try my hand at needle felting, just have no idea where to start. Then again, I haven't tried too hard to start lol

It's a fun hobby! Youtube is a great place to look up tutorials. Craft stores like Michael's often have felting kits from companies like Dimensions, which are a decent starting point and often come with a felting needle and a foam block or other felting pad, which you'll need for other projects. Dimensions wool roving seems to be the most common stuff in craft stores, and it works well enough, though the natural colors sometimes have bits of hay stuck in them, which is annoying.

Basically to start you'll need a felting needle (which differs from a sewing needle in that it has little barbs or notches that felt the wool), a block or pad of some kind, and some wool roving in colors of your choice. You can also needle felt with Polyfill, which you can find in craft or fabric stores. It's an acrylic fiber that people use for stuffing pillows and dolls and such. I like to use Polyfill to create a base for a sculpture, and then use colorful roving on top. It saves money on roving, and I think it's easier to sculpt then roving alone. It also gives your projects a nice weight and solidity.
