General life update

We are just a few weeks out from the release of Magic in the Headlines, and there is still so much to do. I'm feeling a bit swamped. This week was super busy. First, Bast found a stray cat on our back porch, a very beautiful Main Coon tabby. We are over cat-pacity in our… Continue reading General life update


What’s Old is Now New Again

Warning: This post is about to get political. I spent the 4th of July watching WWII movies. The world had become a terrifying place. In the last two years we have seen so many awful changes in the US. There's more violence. People struggle to make ends meet as industries not supported by the current… Continue reading What’s Old is Now New Again


The Worst Kind of Busy

I'm starting to come to terms with the fact that I need to slow down. At least a little. At least temporarily. The last two and a half months have been rough.

My fingers are crossed that… Continue reading Marching On

Tons of fun and great food were had by all, and i walked away with a great steampunk hat,… Continue reading Is it over yet?


Crash and Burn

I'm at the parents house for the next week or so for Christmas. I can't believe that in just over a week I'm leaving for Europe. I still have so much to do! Progress has been slow and steady on the Slytherin scarf. It was interupted by necessary last minute Christmas knitting. I'm making a… Continue reading Crash and Burn
