A little bit

I try to do a little something that engages my creativity everyday. Some people paint everyday, and sometimes I do that, but usually I end up doing different things everyday depending on what I feel like. One day I’ll paint, the next day (or two) I’ll draw, sometimes I just sit […]

New-ish-ness

If you’re reading this on the blog right now (and chances are, you are), you’ve probably noticed a major color change. I missed having a custom theme ( had one once, a long long time ago) so I thought I’d make a custom background for my current theme, so it’s still […]

Prep.

Re-Release

Over the last couple weeks I’ve been putting things together to re-release my book The Balloon Lady with amazon’s createspace. Today I got my proof in, which was really exciting, except that like, everything was wrong with it. It’s bigger, so it feels bigger than I intended, and the pictures are…larger. […]
