Just a quick update. So the shop side of things now has more than just dice bags in it. There will be more added within the next 2 weeks. I just have to get photos taken. On the blog side, I'm doing some research for off the different little series that I currently have on … Continue reading September plans and updates
Category: Business: Behind the Scenes
So..it's almost midnight, but I figured I'd get a quick update of sorts up. If you've been on the site, looking around in the last 72 hours, you'll have noticed some changes. I updated the layout and color scheme to be a bit more professional looking. My goal for the business is for this to … Continue reading Ramblings
Where to start. So, there are some changes coming to this site as I integrate my shop with the blog. I have already started with the process, so I apologize now for the mess. This blog was featured on Feedspot's Top 100 Crochet Blogs list, made number 82 on that list. I'm rather proud of … Continue reading Update

I plan on keeping … Continue reading Quick Update
FantaSci 2022: Chesapeake Library
So my first FantaSci Con is in the books now. I did a lot better than I thought I was going to. I made some new friends too.

Timeline Speed Up
So... somethings have happened in the last 24 hours. If you've tried to visit my Etsy shop today, you'll notice that it's empty of product. Etsy has suspended my account due to non payment of fees. These fees are due to Etsy charging me 0.20 for each in-person sale I had at MarsCon. Something that … Continue reading Timeline Speed Up
The day after

One thing I barely read about in my research, the massive amount of exhaustion that follows afterwards. I'm 37, I'm usually asleep before 10pm just about every night. I have a 4 year old, … Continue reading The day after
