The Art of Grace Benedict

Last month the University had a lovely art show featuring the drawings of Grace Benedict. Many types of artists have shows in the Dunn Art Gallery, and I enjoy seeing so many different styles of work, but it was particularly nice to see drawings in the gallery again. Most of Benedict’s drawings are self-portraits, incorporating Read More …

#OurProject52 – Eyes

The theme for this week’s #OurProject52 challenge is Eyes. I love photos of eyes. As much of a cliche as it is, eyes are the windows to the soul.  They are what give you a glimpse into a person’s thoughts and feelings. Unfortunately, eyes are not on of my strong points when taking photos. I Read More …

#NaBloPoMo – I Wish They Still Wrote Letters

Today’s prompt for #NaBloPoMo was difficult for me. Being the technical person that I am, I love living in this century, so there isn’t much I can think of that isn’t made anymore that I wish still was. I would have said Crispy M&Ms, but they brought those back, so I had to come up Read More …

#NaBloPoMo – Future Generations

There are few things in life that are truly important, and they are all completely intangible- things like family and friendship, but that doesn’t mean that there aren’t a couple things that I hope people keep making in the future. Wooden Toys I love old fashioned wooden toys. Unfortunately you don’t see them much anymore. Read More …

#NaBloPoMo – Like it was in 3D

Because of my choice in college degrees, I’ve had access to 3D technology for a long time.  In college, we used 3D scanners that would scan and collect data from 3d objects and create a digital 3D model that could be manipulated for animation. Of course, now things are going the other way, you can Read More …

#NaBloPoMo – The coolest project I’ve ever seen…

I love going to craft fairs. My mom and I try to go to at least one together every fall. There are always tons of things to see while you’re there; jewelry, wreaths, woodworking, clothes. In recent years we’ve begun to see more and more people bringing in things to sell that obviously aren’t hand Read More …

#NaBloPoMo – Just a touch of love.

I’m a big fan of surrounding myself with things that make me happy. At the office my walls are covered with art prints and reproduction comic book covers. The bright colors are a necessary break from staring at code all day. While at home, I surround myself with things I find a bit more calming. Read More …

#NaBloPoMo – Never make that again.

Today’s prompt for #NaBloPoMo was to talk about a dish I’ve attempted to make that ended in disaster. As soon as I saw this, I knew it needed to be about the time I attempted a seafood casserole. It was the 1st year my husband and I were married, and I was attempting a new Read More …
