An Official Goodbye. [Apr. 18th, 2010|12:30 pm]

Hey everyone,
I've been away for a while and I'm afraid I won't be back. I am officially abandoning Livejournal. Generally I only use it for ranting and whining and I'm not going to do that anymore. My new blog for my artwork can be found here-
http://mooglet-bear.blogspot.com/ (I don't like it as much as LJ as a blog but it's better for arty stuff)
and my website can be found here- http://moogskewell.moonfruit.com

Please come and visit me, and keep an eye out for my new personalised cake topper business-coming soon!
I'll occasionally be back to check on you guys who are still here, and am always on facebook/email at mooncat335@hotmail.com. Lets keep in contact!

Bye bye LJ, you served me well for 7 years! <3

We have a new house! Ben is going back to Uni at the end of the month and we decided to downsize rather than wait around for the next perfect housemate. Our new place is really nice, 3 bedroomed flat (We can have a studio!) with an open plan kitchen/living room, new kitchen with gas (WOO!) and a modern bathroom. It's not is such a nice area as we're in now but we're only gonna be paying £575 for 3 rooms, so it's worth it.
I can't get my head around moving again, I haven't moved for 3 years, this is the longest I've lived in a house since I've been in Bristol. I do love this place, it's cosy and close to all my favourite shops. Things I'll miss-
*Our living room
*Being 100 yards from a craft shop and The Shop of Wonders (Wonderful Indian corner shop)
*The Garden (I have to give away my plants! Boo!)
*Being really close to Gloucester Road

Things I won't miss

*Mewling Doom, the horrid screaming toddler who lives next door
*Idiots who play their car stereos so goddamn loud all the windows rattle
*Moronic football fans causing trouble
*Ben's patented 'Pots 'o' Crap' (He keeps ice cream tubs of food waste in the kitchen)
*Lack of sunlight in the house
*The house being cold in winter

I guess the pros outweigh the cons!

This month is going to be so hectic, as well as mad expensive. I'm starting a new office job on Monday (Yes I know...but I need it to pay the astronomical fees for our new place) it's my birthday on the 16th, birthday outing on the 19th and starting the move on the 20th. Then we have ten days of slowly moving things over so we don't have to rush everything on one day, then on the 2nd of October we're going to Birmingham for the International Comics con which I really hope goes well because I'll probably have 2 beans to my name by that time. Throughout this month I have to continue working on stuff to sell too! @_@ I can't wait though! My own stall!

Fuck you, Office Work! [Aug. 28th, 2009|05:25 pm]

Well, things are in the toilet again. And it's pushing me to make a big decision-to go freelance. Today I was rung my employment agency to tell me that that job I've been doing at the NHS for the past 2 weeks don't want me back 'because of my internet use and lack of attention to detail'. That basically means I forgot to put a date stamp on some things and they caught me on Facebook once or twice. The kicker is, when I started last week, my boss was in for one day and then went on holiday for a week. With one day's training, I couldn't very well do the job perfectly for the rest of the week, and no-one else was able to help me. When my boss came back on Tuesday we sorted out everything I had done and I got a bit more training. She was very supportive and understanding and kept saying "Poor girl, having all this dumped on her while I was away." With everything sorted out, I started to get my bearings properly. Then today with no warning I'm told by the agency (Not my boss) that I'm not wanted there anymore. Once I'd taken the call no-one said a word to me and I barely said a word to anyone else. According to the agent, they wanted her to tell me because 'they liked me so much'. Bollocks. All sounds suspiciously like bullshit to me. Apart from that I sat and watched a girl across from me playing internet games for 1 1/2 hours, then my co-worker book his holiday flights during work time. And they have a problem with me dipping in and out of Facebook every now and again.

SO! I'm gonna do what my Dad did and start working out of my room. I will probably have to take temp work in the mean time still but I need something else. I'm gonna offer my services of architects for models, and if work comes in with a model making company I'll take that too. I'd like to think if it becomes a bit more successful maybe I could rent a studio. It worked for my Dad, he started making jewellery in the spare room of our old house when I was a baby, and eventually he and my Mum were able to start a successful business.
My friend Lucie has offered to post flyers at her uni for architectural students have have their mock ups built by me, and I'll go from there. I'm going to buy a website and see what comes of it, but if I can help it, I am going to avoid working in an office at all costs.

Sailor Moon Zodiac Colour by *littlemooglet on deviantART

But I'm entitled seeing as this took me almost 2 years to actually get finished (I drew it and then put it down for ages because I was afraid of wrecking it by colouring it.) I guess I'm quite pleased with it, but my painting is terrible.

I'm pretty bored right now. The work situation is non existant. No temp jobs, KD obviously don't have stuff for me to do right now, it's dull dull dull! Oh well. Going hom on Wednesday. No doubt work will come flooding in when I'm in Scotland. *sigh*.

Hello there! I found this record in an Amnesty International bookshop, and pretty much needed to own it. It now takes pride of place on my bedroom wall. For who's record collection is complete without this gem...
Buh?Collapse )

Thought I'd share with you my robot army! I cast them in a quick curing resin called Fast Cast at work, then painted them up.

Probably the most difficult bottle I've made so far! It's 2cm high.

Bristol Maker's Forum next weekend! I hope it goes well!
