Ah! How exciting! Marriage equality legal all across America! For once, I'm kinda proud of America.
So I made a flamingo, a lion, and a random fat cat.
I like the flamingo and the lion, the cat I feel is nothing special. I had this random small shape left over and I thought, "hey, a simple fat cat." but there is a weird texture on rubber that you can on the printed cat and it's bothering me a lot.
If anyone has any ideas about a pattern, let me know!
I guess the next step will be figuring out patterns for them!
I'm still working on the save the date cards! I think I'm gonna try and make a two layer reduction card. Since there is an overlap in the words, I want them to pop. So I am going to cut out out the words at the bottom and then the stringed lights, print that a light pink and then cut out the "We're getting married!" part and print the second layer a navy blue. So the We're Getting Married! part will be a light pink. We'll see how it goes. I know I definitely have to get a better registering system down, If I do actually do this for real customers.
Also font is really hard, I think the next time I try this, I'm going to type out the words and then put them on linoleum.
This has been a long week! I've worked a lot, but it is slow in State College, and we over staff every night, so I am not making any money. Yesterday was my first day off since last Friday!
And I have an awful new neighbor! It's just one guy, he moved in last thursday and blasted music everyday since, I wrote a pleasant passive aggressive note when he played music until 4 am on SUNDAY and surprisingly he kinda kept it down but then last night he had another party, that started at like 11:30 pm?? and went on until 3:30 am, and the music was so loud! I have resorted to a sleep app, that plays that weird ocean strumming guitar music to at least put me to sleep for an hour.
It is just so rude! To think of only yourself and not think of any consequences. And we have chairs out back that he just takes without asking and doesn't even put them back!
He is making it very easy for me to not miss this place. I have another month here and then we're gone! I overheard the guy say to another neighbor that he isn't even a student, so he doesn't have that as an excuse as to why he's AWFUL.
I get grumpy after one night of bad sleep, so after 7 days I am now pissed off. Even Kevin, who's been all kinda calm about the whole is finally over it. So we wrote another note and if he's ridiculous with the music again we're going to have to unfortunately call the police.
I hate confrontation but I want my sanity back for the final month.
At least we're going away next week! And it should be quiet after midnight! Kevin's family was nice enough to invite me to Deep Creek Maryland with them for a week, so that should be nice!
Hopefully the next time I blog about my neighbor it'll be how I am pleasantly surprised at how compliant he is and not at a full fledged war with him! haha.
Hope everyone has a good weekend!
