Who loves Doctor Who?  I do!

I've been working on a nine inch tall TARDIS.  It's for the wedding, so I won't give specifics on how it will be used, but I can give you some sneak peaks.

I made it from cardboard and paper mache with a top piece made of sculpey.  I gave it a coat of white paint as a primer so that the paint color would really pop.

The hardest part was the lettering for the Police Public Call Box signs.  I printed the sign for the door on the computer.

What kind of crafts take up your time?  What's your favorite TV show?

It's February in San Diego, and I feel like I have a lot going on.  It doesn't feel like February in any other place I've lived.
I just got back from a week in Portland with my sister, brother-in-law, and their now five week old baby boy.  It was so nice to see them all, and to feel really useful, cooking, cleaning, and taking care of that little boy.  When I got back, it was to a pile of reply cards from our wedding invitations.  The wedding is coming along.  It is less than four months away and I am really starting to dig in now.  In fact, one of my major projects for the month is sewing tablecloths and napkins for the reception.
The checked fabric is for the tablecloths, the solid blue for napkins.  How do you like my makeshift ironing board.
John and I are also considering a bit of redecoration in order to create better (read tidier) storage, and to maximize seating.  My sewing projects have kind of gotten out of control, even taking over some of the floor now.
I'll let you know how that comes along.
I have a sewing date for tomorrow, so maybe I will have something fun to share after that.
