Truth in Advertising
Thursday, February 19th, 2009

Every once in a while, the woman that stocks our soda fund at work will pick something new for us all to try. This week, it was Izze, a sparkling fruit beverage (and at 70% juice, not that scary). I picked up the Sparkling Clementine flavor, expecting to be drinking clementine juice. Wrong! Ingredients: Pure […]

I Don’t Know What Happened to September…
Friday, October 17th, 2008

(And we won’t go into what might have happened to the first half of October!) Just two weeks ago, I was enjoying the warm sunny days of early fall on Hatteras Island, part of the Outer Banks in North Carolina. The water was warm, perfect for dunking toes and collecting shells, and the peaceful calm […]

Busy Busy
Wednesday, November 14th, 2007

This has been a very busy month already, and there’s more to come. This past weekend was Katie’s bridal shower. I managed to strong arm two of the other bridesmaids into getting Katie a sewing machine. I’d feel guiltier about it, but Katie really needs a good sewing machine right now. And now she has […]

Falling Off the Face of the Earth, etc.
Tuesday, July 31st, 2007

Sorry for the disappearing act. After I got back from Otakon, I got wrapped up in some frantic gift knitting since I have a deadline coming up. I’ll try to remember to take some pictures as I go along, but I won’t be able to post them for a little while longer. I won’t drop […]

Costume DONE
Thursday, July 19th, 2007

So I finally got off my butt and finished my Maya Fey costume. For real this time. I just need to close up the holes under the sleeves (by hand, unfortunately) and press it so that it’s not a wrinkled ball. Sadly, my new sewing machine balked at sewing through ten layers of broadcloth, but […]

Otakon Countdown (and other musings)
Monday, July 2nd, 2007

Well, the artist alley table’s been secured, and the weeks are counting down, and I can’t seem to get my act in gear to make much to contribute. Argh. Must get butt in gear and knit/crochet/sew! I’m also dragging when it comes to finishing my Maya Fey costume. It’s so close, too. Katie is no […]

Back from Anime Mid-Atlantic
Sunday, June 17th, 2007

The Week Before  To begin, let’s discuss the prep. The first obstacle that I had to overcome is that for most of the past week, since Tuesday actually, I have been feeling rather rotten. First it started with a sore throat, then a headache and lightheadedness, then it quickly moved on to coughing, congestion, and […]

Well It’s About Time…
Tuesday, June 5th, 2007

I finally finished a story of mine. Actually finished it. It’s my NaNoWriMo entry from last year, and I finished editing it this morning. Woo. (You can get to it from my FictionPress.com profile page, if you like. It’s called An Accident of Birth.) See, March is National Novel Editing Month. I got it into […]

Admit It, You Want One Too
Monday, April 23rd, 2007

I am churning out some more dice bags. It’ll be nice to have something to help fill up our table at Anime Mid-Atlantic. I still have to help brainstorm up some more traditional art, though, as Anime Mid-Atlantic frowns on artists that only have sewn objects to sell. I suppose they will count crochet and […]

Tekkoshocon V, a Rousing Success
Monday, April 16th, 2007

Well, I’m back from Tekkoshocon and getting ready to reenter the real world (work, etc.). My costume was well received, the skits were great, and all in all, I think I speak for all of us when I say that we had a great time. We’ll definitely be trying to come back next year. My […]
