When I first heard about Speak Out with Your Geek Out week, I had a hard time figuring out what my first post would be about. I do a lot of what would be called "geeky" things, and have a ton of fun with them too! But I wanted to start with something visual, and… Continue reading Speak Out with Your Geek Out: Day 1 – Sewing/Craft Geek
At last! After months of being too busy to do anything for myself, due to moving/reviewing/outside projects/etc./etc., I've finally had my first RELAXING Saturday! It's a micro miracle, I tell you. In the past, I've always made Saturdays "My Day," meaning I can do whatever I want, even if it's just lay around on the… Continue reading A Saturday to Remember
Andy and I have been watching more of The IT Crowd, a bizarre and funny sitcom-style BBC show about an IT department in a large corporation. The first season was a blast--so odd, and yet so hilarious-- that we actually rented it twice from Netflix, so we knew we had something good. This last week… Continue reading “Be My Sexy Dead Wife”
Haven't had a whole lot of time to paint lately, so today I snuck in a little oil on canvas. Yay for progress! ^_^ I forgot how much I enjoy painting. Yesterday, when Andy and I went to the Boeing Museum of Flight up in Seattle, I saw the small oil-paint gallery they have of… Continue reading Painting Progress
If only it were this easy. ^_^ For the record: I do not look this evil when editing... I do, however, wear glasses... Note: I wish I could post it larger, but wordpress is stupid like that. Click here to see it in full.
It's late, so I'll be brief! Thought I'd showcase my amateur painting process just for kicks. Here's the basic paint-sketching I got done this last Saturday after spending waaaaay too much time trying to figure out a subject. Turns out, Andy is my subject this time around. I'm really stuck on the portrait thing, and… Continue reading Show and Tell
I've determined that I have an emotionally abusive relationship with my muse. Writing Stuff: Yesterday evening was a stupid evening. I think the inspiration center of my brain (open M-W 10AM-2PM, Th-F 8AM-11AM, closed S/Sun/and whenever the heck it feels like it) and the anxiety center of my brain (24/7/365--always there when you don't need… Continue reading Write In/White Out : Meltdown
Also, monkeys are hard to draw. Writing Stuff: + 900 words on the "UNTITLED NOVEL PROJECT" from the beginning--shock of shocks! Figured out I was mixing up the hero and the main character. Problem solved! ^_^ <--proud of myself face.
I am tired. It's been a long week already, and it's only Wednesday! O_O <--my scared face. On the plus side, I've been playing around with Write In/White Out, a comic strip which is pretty much just me making fun of the fact that I'm insane, and the fact that I think too much, and… Continue reading I’s so tired…
