Esprix, A Domestic


I finally put up the 3 pictures I framed so far in my room - yay! I'm now looked over (left to right) by "When Angels Cry," "Summer Oak" and "Etienne." I also mounted brackets onto my full length mirror to hang, but I need to hit Homo Despot to get drywall anchors. I also did laundry.

f34r my l33t homemaking ski11z.

I also finally talked to nazcr (was starting to get worried), plus talked to Pam, Jason and Mom (who liked Quincy).

And now, I sleep.

info?
We have Ruth Thompson's angels and a few others, but I don't think I've "When Angels Cry" before. Who is the artist? "Etienne" is nice as well. Might have to do some shopping at the WorldCon art show.

Re: info?
I have "Invictus" which is what started my collection (I have to get him custom framed though). "When Angels Cry" is by Maria J. William (www.mariawilliam.net), and "Etienne" is by Abranda Icle Sisson (www.muddvision.com). All of these, of course, came from various cons - Coppercon, Westercon, Condor, etc. Check out my artwork gallery if you haven't already (it includes the piece I outbid drewan on at G'con).

Good thing you checked with your landlords before making all sorts of holes and such in the walls. :-)

Is that a problem? I've been talking about this for weeks.

Just what do you think I know about your plans?

I must have missed the part about putting holes in the wall, especially ones big enough to use drywall anchors. I knew you were putting up new bookshelves, and getting new containers to store your garb. I knew about the possibility of raising your bed. Hanging large mirrors with mollybolts is something new.

Is it a problem? Only in the fact that reading about it in your LJ was the first I had consciously heard about it. I don't want to invoke any kind of formal landlord/tenant discussion about this, but I do want to know about any modifications to my house that are more significant than pounding a couple of nails into the wall. I don't think that's unreasonable.

JOhn.

Specifically I was referring to having talked about hanging pictures. That said, if I'm hammering nails in the walls, and the walls are made of drywall, drywall anchors might, at times, become necessary. I didn't think it would be a problem, especially considering they're relatively small. (I would also add that I had hoped to be able to earthquake-proof my shelves, which would also likely require drywall anchors.)

If any of this is a problem, I'd be happy to leave the room in the condition I found it when I leave. (Spackle is my friend!)

You have? All I'd heard was that you were doing spring cleaning and reorganizing. Hadn't heard a thing about hanging up artwork or anything else until I heard you banging on the wall last night. Granted, I'm not too keen about more nailholes in the wall already, but I figure you can patch those up and paint over them when you're done with the room. Probably the same with the holes you'll need to quake-proof your shelves.

Bingo. :) And you did see the frames I bought the other week, yes? With my nifty keen-o Target gift card? I remember talking to you about them.
