Thanks to an ice storm, Mil & I had a day off yesterday. Or more specifically, Mil had a day off and I had a remote work day. Remote work days are a little hard when you’re home alone with a 5-year-old. She really wanted me to play with her, and had a difficult understanding…Read More
A little while back, I decided to set up a webstore on Society 6. The store allows me to create and sell prints of my work directly to customers online. Right now, the store consists of a few pieces of my traditional art, along with a couple digital designs as well. I’ve even chosen to…Read More

My goal this year is just to manage to read 1 book a month. So far, I’m keeping up with that, and even exceeding a bit, as I’ve somehow managed to complete 2 books so far in February. I started the year with one of Terry Pratchett’s Discworld novels, Wyrd Sisters. My copy is one…Read More
With Valentine’s Day approaching there are hearts everywhere at our house – from the (no longer a Christmas) tree to the crafts. We’re decorating everything in pinks and reds, and covering all the surfaces in hearts of all sizes. Hearts have even taken over our craft space with stickers, doilies, and a variety of other…Read More
