Or... takin' a break! Sort of. I never really stop drawing, I just stop making finished paintings that I feel are worthy of my DA gallery.
Sometimes it happens. Ideas dry up and other things grab my interest.
Jim and I bought a house in November '10 and got into DIY repair and home upgrading. My new blog, leveluphouse.com, shows off some of our efforts. We also took on a few side projects, like a new plush website and investigating some two-person-team game dev ideas to pursue in our free time. We're also swamped with entertainment: I'm hooked on Tiny Tower and reading A Dance With Dragons.
And we're traveling! I'll be in Illinois
In two weeks it'll be two years since Jim and I made the move to Washington state! We still love it here, and commemorate this "occasion" we've bought a house! I've been kind of quiet on DA for the last couple months as we filled out paperwork, gathered supplies for some up-front renovations, and packed up our apartment for the big move.
Of course, Seattle's weather system had some other ideas and dumped a giant load of snow and ice on us. This city totally shuts down when there's snow! It's still weird to me, being from Chicago where school NEVER gets canceled even if there's like two feet of snow on the ground. It's starting to melt no
Anyone else going?! I am!!
I'll be working at the table for "Invasion from Outer Space", a board game designed and published by my friends Scott and Jason Hill!! It's a super fun board game featuring a group of circus performers as Earth's last hope against invading aliens.
I'm a character in the game: I play Angelica the Bearded Lady! I'll put on my heels, lace up my corset and glue on my beard for a special in-costume demo of the game!! LOL!
Anyway, I hope to see some familiar faces there! Drop by and say hi if you go to Gen Con this year!! After the con I'll be heading home for a week in Illinois with my family and friends. Should be
I know it's cliche to say so, but wow! where did the time go? Celebrating 2000 still feels rather recent!
I spent that New Year's Eve playing EverQuest. I spent this one playing WOW. I guess not much has changed! :D Well, not much besides graduating high school ('02), learning how to drive ('03), graduating college ('06), starting my first job ('06), moving out on my own ('06), meeting my now-husband ('06), moving to Washington state for a new job ('08), and getting married ('09).
2009 was a year of two big events for me:
First, I started at a new job in a new state I'd never been to before. It was a little scary at first but after a ye
I get married tomorrow!! My darling Jim ( MigrantJ (https://www.deviantart.com/migrantj) ) and I will tie the knot tomorrow, November 14th, surrounded by family and close friends. I am so very, very excited!!
And I am also eager to get back to "life as normal", as wedding planning has devoured much of the last few months! Being married will be awesome, and I can't wait.
