Costume, Uploads, and Wedding
I haven't posted anything in ages, and it's about time that I changed that. Here's a brief bit on what I've been up to lately, and I apologize for my lack of presence. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Costume -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- As I haven't even posted since 2010, I haven't mentioned last year's costume for Dragon*Con. I've never worn a costume at that convention before, but a friend suggested the idea of going to the con as "huge fans" (pun fully intended), and Robert, our roommate, and I could

Magazine Review and Kiriban
Robert and I both enjoy cooking, though we often don't really get to stretch our muscles, so-to-speak.

Winter Weather and Warmth
I've lived in Georgia my entire life, so I'm used to green Christmases, the occasional snow which usually doesn't stick, and icy roads when it does get cold enough to snow/freeze. I've never been ice skating 0, and, until Robert and I finally looked it up recently, I've always jokingly talked about the blizzard we got in 1993 (turns out the storm that gave us our blizzard, which was a fairly decent amount of snow, given the area, was far larger than I ever realized when I was a kid). Last Thursday and Friday we ended up with some really cold temperatures and a fairly decent snowfall. After work, Robert, our friend Baugh, and I layered on some

As of today some of my artwork is available as cross-stitch charts on the website Heaven and Earth Design. :boogie: http://www.heavenandearthdesigns.com/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=160_359 It's been a pleasure working with them while getting everything set up, and now the charts are live.
