    One Image Every Day

    Back in 2009 I did a 365 photography project. In a project like this, you commit to making one image every day for the year. It can be a pretty serious undertaking, especially if you’re a busy person or have a very routine life, and especially if both of these things are true. Both of…

  • Back to the Bloggin’ Life

    Hello internet! Welcome (back) to my blog! I remember back when I first heard of blogging, in 2004. It was a new thing, this writing and posting and interacting on the internet, in your own space that didn’t belong to some big company, where you could talk about whatever you wanted for as long as…

  • The Best Chocolate Chip Cookies Ever

    Last summer while perusing Pinterest I came across this cookie recipe from the blog For Me, For You.  The title and notes in the pins caught my eye – Was this cookie really so good that I’d never want another chocolate chip cookie recipe?  Was this really the be-all-end-all recipe for my absolute favorite cookie?…

  • 2012 Project: Sky Scarf

    I learned to knit a few years ago and loved it, but between work, writing and life I hardly ever have any time to do it. So I’ve decided to ease back into knitting with a 365 knitting project. Yes, I know how ridiculous that sounds, but this is project that should be fairly easy…

  • Hello 2012, or What I Was Up To In 2011

    Hello, internet, I’ve missed you. Last winter I started off the year with the belief that I was going to blog regularly.  I thought that if I expanded my blog topics to include, well, everything, that I’d never run out of things to blog about.  What I didn’t realize was that it wasn’t a shortage…

  • Coming Out of the Writing Closet

    I have a confession.  It’s a deep, dark secret that I haven’t really talked about here before. I am writing a book. Yes, you heard me right.  I’m just over 30,000 words into my first draft of a young adult novel about a girl who doesn’t know she’s a witch. Please don’t laugh too hard,…

  • Fantastic Mr. Fox

    I first saw the trailer for the Fantastic Mr. Fox in the theater in 2009. I fell in love with the look and feel of the animation, but when the movie actually released I was in the midst of preparing to move across the country. The story of Mr. Fox fell off my personal radar…

  • 2011: New Year, New Attitude

    It’s pretty obvious that in 2010 I was a serious blog slacker. My slackage was due in part to simply being busy, between the move, the new city and the day job. The other part was that I just didn’t know what to post. True to its name, this blog has been a through a…
