Calling All Scrappers!

This request came across one of my lists, so I’m pass­ing it on with Ms. Med­ley-Rath’s per­mis­sion. Please pass it on to oth­ers you know, too!

Are you a scrap­book­er or some­one who works in the scrap­book indus­try? I want to talk to you! I plan to uncov­er how, why, and what peo­ple scrap­book. I […]

Book Joy! And Stuff

I’m so tick­led! In the last two weeks, I’ve found not one, but two books that Sam and I have want­ed for ages at good prices on eBay!

First, I’ve been look­ing for See­ing Red: The Rap­ture of Red­heads by Howard Schatz for years and years. Seri­ous­ly, it has to be at least five […]

Thing-A-Day 1!

If there’s a way to auto-cross-post rel­e­vant entries from here to Thing-A-Day, I haven’t fig­ured it out. Doing it man­u­al­ly feels inel­e­gant.

I don’t have a pho­to to post, but I got out the draw­ing tablet for the first time in an embar­rass­ing­ly long time, and worked on a cross-stitch design. It split into two […]

Dit­to show­ing off her new paint job!

This cute­ness just strength­ens my wish that we lived clos­er to Kim­ber­ly and her fam­i­ly. Click for more pho­tos.

TechShop, Photography Advice, Postsingular, NoDryClean, and Verizon FIOS Danger

Dis­parate thoughts from a very low ener­gy day. In fact, it was so low-ener­­gy that I thought I post­ed this entry last night, and nev­er did.

I has a fever. Do Not Want. Blah. Can’t brain. Short atten­tion span means you just get links and such. Good links, but links.

Color Clues, or Why Four Blue Sweaters Isn’t Enough

“Anoth­er blue sweater? You have four of those. Why not get some­thing dif­fer­ent for a change?” “No, I have navy, corn­flower, Williams­burg, and baby blue sweaters. This one is roy­al blue. That’s total­ly dif­fer­ent!” Okay guys, I know that you thought women were mak­ing up some of the col­or names we use. Char­treuse? Why not say green? And garnet—that’s red, right? What’s this about plum, amethyst, grape, vio­let, mauve, and fuschia all being dif­fer­ent? They’re all pur­ple, aren’t they? No, real­ly, they aren’t. We don’t make them up just to vex you. They’re all very, very dif­fer­ent, which is why we would nev­er con­sid­er wear­ing brick red lip­stick with a cher­ry red sweater. Ick! Now there’s help for you. Free help, even! […]

Whoops! Video Link Correction & Credit

The video I ded­i­cat­ed to Katie isn’t actu­al­ly called Wake Up Cat, and it has been pulled from YouTube (or it was—it seems to be back, now).

The piece is by ani­ma­tor Simon Tofield of Tan­dem Films, and is prop­er­ly titled Cat Man Won. You can view it on their site.

Baby in the Sink

This joy­ous image was an Hon­or­able Men­tion award win­ner in the Peo­ple cat­e­go­ry of the 2nd Annu­al Spi­der Awards in 2006. The con­test, appar­ent­ly well known in the art world, seeks the best in black and white pho­tog­ra­phy from around the world by both pro­fes­sion­als and ama­teurs. I spent quite a while look­ing […]

Fantasy & science fiction art gallery

I just learned about Epi­logue, a mar­velous online gallery and com­mu­ni­ty, by way of a link from needle­work design­er and artist Tere­sa Went­zler’s blog.

Went­zler’s art has just been approved for inclu­sion there — con­grats to her!

Epi­logue could eas­i­ly become anoth­er time sink!
