Now that all the pride octopi have been re-listed, I wanted to take some time to talk about some of what goes into the design process for these little guys and why some of them took so much longer than others to complete. Full disclosure, I won't be talking about the shape of the octopi… Continue reading Color Choice, Design, and all that Jazz
Anyone who’s been reading this blog for basically any amount of time knows that I make no secret of a particular dislike of snow, cold, and winter in general. This is my second winter in the midwest, and while it has definitely been better than last year, it has also reaffirmed those feelings with a… Continue reading Sometimes the Writing is the Craft
So, over the past several years, I've built up a library of books I have but haven't read. I like books, and I like reading them, but I don't do it very often because, at the end of the day, I'm far more likely to go for an audio and/or visual form of entertainment when… Continue reading Superman Book Folding
All right. So I meant to get another small stuffed animal done this weekend, but I also went to Ikea this weekend in my ongoing quest to replace the furniture I stole from my parents with stuff that isn't older than I am. And, as these things usually go, assembling the furniture I got took… Continue reading Crafting of a Different Kind
So I had a bit of a traumatizing knitting experience last week, and I decided to do a fun prose thing with it.
Happy New Year, everyone! Welcome to 2019! We did it. We survived yet another complete rotation around the sun. Here's to the next one. 2019 is the year of the pig, which means this is the start of the second full zodiac cycle since my birth...which I think means 2019 is bad luck for me.… Continue reading Isn’t it great when your schedule says you have to post on New Year’s Day?
So...I took a surprise break from blogging last week. The reason was that I couldn't think of a post idea that wasn't going to be exactly the same as the previous two weeks, and I kinda just gave up. But fear not! That matoki is done (finally), and I'm talking about something else this week.… Continue reading Christmas Musings (Kinda)
Okay, so this past weekend, I took the single best picture I have ever taken in my entire life. I don't know what the light was doing, but it worked. So, I made these bunnies in a frenzy on Friday (like, it was literally all I did on Friday) because on Saturday, I went to… Continue reading BAP Forever
Alright guys. I'm gonna tell a story. Okay. So it was December 2016. I was going home for Christmas break. Most of the time, when I had to travel between New Orleans and Las Cruces, I'd take the Amtrak. The trip usually took about a day and a half, which is really long compared to,… Continue reading Rambles: Fanart
This is the Mississippi River, as viewed from the waterfront just behind Cafe du Monde in New Orleans. The first time I came to New Orleans, I was awestruck. I come from the desert, and the idea of this much water in one place fascinated me. In my eyes, the Mississippi may as well have… Continue reading Rambles: A look back at the past four years
