Jimmie is the coolest fractal-dad you can ever wanna meet and a headbanging one as well, with his heavy metal group on a side of being caring & sensitive while teaching kids with special needs !! Honestly I never knew people like that still existed, till I started talking to him and found out he is funny, normal & really down right approachable in person (if th

Inspiration Station: *fractekThe dividing line between fractal art and abstract art is itself a fractal, and may appropriately be visualised in Kirsty's brilliant painterly Landscape. Indeed, it's in this area that I find my particular favourites: geometrics such as movave wave and Feeling the Groove; primitive forms, sometimes with a hint of the calligraphic like primative and Script; and, of course, more of those fizzing horizontal divisions at different levels of 'zoom' - Mediterranean dreams, Frac stract andInspiration Station: *fractek2 years ago in Personal More Like This

Lumberjack FlannelghanI am working on my brother-in-law's afghan. The pattern is called the Lumberjack Flannelghan. It's a fairly easy pattern, but I recommend being very familiar with double crochet before you try it. I don't know that it was written with novices in mind, even though it's a really good First Afghan project. :lLumberjack Flannelghan11 months ago in Personal More Like This
He bought the yarn for it (6 One Pound skeins of Caron at $8.99 each) a little over a year ago, and I have been working on it off and on since. At first I was like this is a kind of boring pattern, so I worked on it only once in a while. Now I am ashamed to say that it's been over a year since I started this and I'm still not done with it. :iconimsorryplz:
Although I have made some serious progress on it in the last week. His birthday is February 11th, so I am hoping against hope to have it ready by then.
It is made in 5 strips, each strip is 7 blocks measuring 10"x10". I have made 3 full strips and am on the second

If anyone submitted works that expired, please resubmit.
With no mods, I'm afraid that there's no backup for when something happens to me.
If anyone feels they can check in on a regular basis, feel free to apply.
I'm going through the folders to get it all cleaned up now, and hopefully we can get back on track!
Don't forget.. to validate your novel!Don't forget1 year ago in Personal More Like This
That's right, Validation is now live! To get to the validation page, you can hover over the 'My NaNoWriMo link across the top of the page and select Validate, or you can go to your novel editing page and you should see the validation link in big blue letters!
In order to win, you MUST run your novel through the validator. Otherwise your bar will remain blue and you wont count as an official winner.
I would advise everyone to try and validate early for two reasons:
1) There are ALWAYS discrepancies between Writing programs and the Validatos, so if Word thinks you have reached 50k, the validator may not agree.
2) Lots of people will be validating and sometimes this can lead to the website crashing. Do it early to make sure you can access the website!

Kami-Con!Yay!Kami-Con!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
The fine people at Kami-Con finally allowed people to buy tables at their Artists' Alley and I jumped on that the minute I saw it. This will be our third Kami-Con and I have to say I'm looking forward to it. Ever since we started doing conventions, this one has stood out as low-stress, high fun, and yes - good profits. Because we don't need to get a hotel room, our profits are even better than at AWA!
I noticed that this year they'll be collecting Birmingham city sales tax at the convention rather than letting the artists submit it on their own. It surprised me, but it's not a big deal; it's probably something Birmingham requires them to do. Whatevs, I just need to remember to bring my checkbook with me - I would feel uneasy about handing them a wad of cash, for some reason.
Oh, I am so relieved! I just need to fill out the contract and send it in. And pay for the table, of course. So wonderful!
And now I need to turn to the ugly specter of Production and get some stuff ready to s

Scattered thoughtsWell the end of the year is rolling in like a fierce work-lion for me, both at home and at my paying jobs.Scattered thoughts1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Firstly my three part time jobs in the Geo department. For one I need to process five new rock samples (once they come in) as well as my current batch of several (hard work), For the collections job, I have hundreds of invertebrate specimen cards to check with the database (tedious work). Lastly, the museum is in re-assembly stage and I am having to paint some casts for them (fun work). Those combined means I will be busy busy at work, and likely pulling full 8hr days until break (Yay! but tiring).
At home, I have christmas gifts to box and ship before Friday, an Inkle strip to get warped and woven (as a good friend finally decided what he wants for christmas), and more wool to clean, as I have spun all I have cleaned already,
Now add to that helping to decorate at my husband's work, waiting for ram to come in for my desktop (fan was failing and motherboard
