Turning 29

Turning 29

Turning 29 was much more weird than I thought it would be. I’ve never given much thought to ever being out of my twenties; it’s not that I thought I would be in my twenties forever, they’ve just lasted for almost ten years and it seemed like they would just keep on going forever. I still have the rest of the year to go, and while 9 years of my twenties saw me graduate college, travel to Europe for the…

Currently, Currently

Currently, Currently

January always feels so… new. I also have my birthday at the end of the month so it is one big time for new beginnings for me. Instead of resolutions, I like to choose new directions I would like my life to go in. Sometimes they’re big, sometimes they’re small, and sometimes small decisions lead to big life changes. My main goal this time last year was to get a new job, and I finally found one in July. The…

” A Lot Can Happen In A Year”

” A Lot Can Happen In A Year”

There have been big changes around here! I originally started to slack with my posts here while I was interning for Urban Craft Uprising, the best and most awesome craft show that just so happens to be in Seattle. My primary duty was to post vendor and author interviews on their blog and facilitate giveaways. The closer to the show we got, the busier I was. Then, I worked 29 hours over three days while the show was going in…

May Update

May Update

Some Wednesday in May Yes, yes, I skipped a week. Whoopsie! I seem to have been reading things that I didn’t want to/feel like review(ing) here and have been slacking on completing posts. Either I have written the review or taken the pictures but not both. As their summer intern, I have been working on the Urban Craft Uprising blog publishing vendor interviews and organizing giveaways. While I usually only touch those posts once a week, that’s about how often…

Emerald City Comicon 2015

Emerald City Comicon 2015

Purrlock & Catleesi prints by Jenny Parks. I Was the Cat & Tragedy Series issues by Benjamin Dewey. On Friday, before I met up with (other) Jessica, I bee-lined it to the Boom!Studios booth to pick up a copy of the Lumberjanes TP that I have been so eager to read. Once I met Jessica outside and reentered, we stopped by the Karen Hallion booth that was exactly at the beginning and we picked up some prints (me, Belle with…

Learning Something New

Learning Something New

The learning curve for something completely and utterly new can be pretty steep. For instance… graphic novels. A friend encouraged me to read Saga Volume 1 while we were at Powells some time ago. Ehh…the cover looked weird (SHUT UP I KNOW) and I just wasn’t really into comics at that point. “I think you’ll really like it,” she said. I wasn’t disinterested so I put it on my mental “to read” list for later. It all started with three…

Embroidering On Paper

Embroidering On Paper

I’ve been wanting to learn to embroider for over a year now and I finally sat down to teach myself. I don’t remember what exactly pushed me to do it, but before I knew it I had picked up some shiny new Moleskine graph notebooks and started tracing and sketching. All of these I drew freehand, though I was looking at a picture while drawing. The Eiffel Towel, Tardis, and phone booth were all inspired by my trip coming up in…

Moving to Seattle

Moving to Seattle

From the moment I moved to North Carolina when I was ten years old, I knew I didn’t want to stay. I held on to the dream of moving back to Florida for quite a while before it quietly left. So I knew I wanted to move, but where? Thankfully the person I ended up with also did not want to stay in NC. Brainstorming took place in 2010-2011. We knew we didn’t want to live in the South; it’s…

ECCC 2014

ECCC 2014

My first comic con. Certainly not my last. What got me excited was an appearance by Cary Elwes, who plays Robin in Robin Hood Men in Tights, one of my most favorite movies of all time. Unfortunately he dropped out a few days before the show and that made me extremely sad, but life goes on. We kicked off the weekend of Emerald City Comic Con on Friday with a Q&A with Alan Tudyk, who plays Wash in Firefly, and…
