Thanks for all the support, advice, and virtual fist bumpage ("bumpage," heh) on my last post. I still have a lot of your comments to catch up on (I've been offline for a few days), but rest assured I *do* read and appreciate them all.
No new updates on the anxiety front yet, but I've been having fun with some new projects:
First, though I make it a habit to say no to just about every interview or writing request these days (lazy), I made an exception for Digital Writing Month, which one of my oldest friends helps run. My article isn't very long, so if you're curious what I've learned from writing both Cake Wrecks *and* Epbot, then check out Half-Baked Writing Tips From the Cake Wrecks Lady.
(Disclaimer: I did not pick the photos. The dog is not my fault.)
And while I continue to resist the urge to start putting up Christmas decorations (willpower... weakening...) I've been staying busy with other small projects. Like framing up new art!
New steampunk canvas print from my friend Jasmine Becket-Griffith in the dining room.
And a new addition to John's man cave. We usually get boring solid color frames, but this one was too perfect:
Fun, right? The print is by Michael Banks of Sugar Fueled.
This weekend there's been a giant antique festival outside Orlando, and it's been *almost* cool enough to enjoy being outside for it. Anyway, John and I MAY have made a teensy tiny impulse buy yesterday....
We had it in the garage less than five minutes before we started disassembling it. We'll probably just clean it up, refinish the wood, yadda yadda, but I'm open to more... interesting... ideas. :D
Also, I found a small stack of different individual's funeral programs inside it, all from the fall of 1966. Um. Your guess is as good as mine - but if we hear any scratchy music playing in the garage tonight, I'm pretty sure John will be giving SOMEONE a free record player.
And finally, I'm hip-deep in some Potter-iffic craft tutorials, which are coming along swimmingly. Terrible pic, but here's a preview of the first one:
Really excited to write up this tutorial; it's super simple, and all 30 snitches only cost about $3 to make!
Of course, I really need them hanging on a tree for a PROPER picture for the final tutorial, don't you agree? Yes? Aha! I knew it.
John! BRING IN THE CHRISTMAS TREES!!
Happy Sunday, y'all.
