A Room of My Own

We are pretty much moved into the new place, but we still have plenty of cleaning to do and probably a couple of pickup loads of stuff still to move. As far as I can remember I've pretty much kept my pledge not to buy new figures for a while. I actually sold a few things on eBay to help us fund our move; mostly stuff that I wasn't going to get to for a while and is readily available on the market if I ever need to reacquire it. Anyway, I have most of a room to myself at the new house. My wife's desk is in there with her computer, but the rest of the room is mine. This first picture is my painting table. You can see my lamp, my airbrush compressor and the paint rack, as well as some Space Marines and Star Trek ships.

And this is my bookshelf. It's got my gaming books, some other books, and a few boxes of miniatures on it. My toolbox is there too. I didn't take a picture of the closet, but I has my comic books, the painted figures, a game mat, and some of the unpainted stuff that didn't fit on the bookshelf. I also didn't take a picture of my desk, which will hopefully not be overcome by hobby stuff. I am trying to separate my hobby things from my schoolwork and whatnot as under the old system without a painting table I had to do a lot of shuffling in order to work on one or the other.

Just so I don't appear too selfish, my wife has an area for her hobbies too. The utility room is very large and right next to the playroom, so she will have her sewing and craft tables there. That way she can work on her hobbies near the area the kid will be playing in. And speaking of the kid, he's getting to be quite large and mobile. Here he is pulled up on the baby gate and making a drooly pirate face.

And here he is rubbing his teeth together. He likes the playroom as much as he likes any place with space to roam, but the older nieces and nephews really enjoy it. So that's nice.


  1. that's great that you have so much space now! my crafts are taking over our bedroom...and kelley's military gear has taken over the closets. i can't wait to have a real house...in idaho...

  2. Ben looks a lot like Karli in this picture. He's so cute!

  3. Just doing a check of your blog looking for cute pics of the kid Beckah hasn't posted. I LOVE the one on the bottom, although the pirate one is pretty awesome too. And good job on the water line in the kitchen on the previous post. I'm not being cheap on the commenting by combining, I'm being efficient :P

  4. Cute kid :D My little girl has gotten up to 4 teeth now and doesn't stop grinding them. I can't help but cringe everytime she does it!

  5. Ben is so stinking cute!!! I miss him very much!! Wish I was closer!!
