First Day of Work

First day of work went by. My new laptop (they ordered a brand new laptop for me) doesn't arrive till next week, so I'll be using a spare one at the meantime. I was reading some materials in the afternoon while my boss had to go for a meeting. Then I joined in the later meeting which was meant to be 0.5 hr but ended up as a 2 hr meeting. My director jokingly asked if I would still turn up for work tomorrow...LoL..

Last week, I made lots of 1:12 scale miniature peonies, in a variety of shades. Honestly I don't have a fix idea of how I'm going to use them yet, but I just want to experiment on making them in a variety of shades of pink, champagne, peaches...and I guess I'll stop when I eventually run out of shades to make them in, or when I get bored.

Perhaps I will get another shot to show the shades this weekend.

Meanwhile, a shot of them in my hand...


The pinks so far...
