Jealous of Roses Halloween Short: Starshit

So hey, fun fact everyone! When you tell your awesome writing coach that you can’t write horror, your next assignment will be to write horror.  Every day.  For a week.  Here’s my first ride on the scary-go-round.  Hopefully, I didn’t… Continue Reading →

I Have Been Absolved, Part II

Continuing on from last week… I’ve been having people tell me my character’s are appealing, even loveable, for years.  I would never begrudge those compliments.  In fact, they’ve gotten me through a lot of my revisions.  But, something I learned… Continue Reading →

I Have Been Absolved And You Can Be Too

It’s actually really fun and the best part is you have the power to absolve yourself.  But, just in case you’re like me and you don’t believe that you have that power… No, it’s not from me.  It’s from my… Continue Reading →


My very first commission in my new stomping grounds.  The customer and I were carrying on around July 4th and this ended up turning into the necklace.  She specifically wanted to name it when she saw it in person, so… Continue Reading →

Inevitability and Writing Coaches

When I was six years old, I fell outside at recess and sprained my ankle.  I chose not to tell anyone and I walked on that sprain for two days before my mother noticed I couldn’t put my ankle down… Continue Reading →

Retro-Futurism I Necklace

I got my Laura McCabe on for this necklace which I made for Mum’s birthday this year (and to help her get closure on something shitty that happened to us, but that is a long story), but I didn’t manage to… Continue Reading →

Water Lilies I

Made for my lovely girlfriend for her high school reunion.  Swarovski stones and bicones, gold-sueded Czech beads, charlottes and Japanese seed beads in Prismatic RAW.  This required roughly 30 hours of work.

I picked up beading much faster than I picked up writing.  I’ve only been able to tell a more or less coherent story from beginning to end for a few years.  Of course, I’ve only been beading for a few… Continue Reading →

Love, Hate, Tortitude & Other Terrible Things

So, the cat previously mentioned has adjusted well to her new home, by which I mean she’s now convinced this house is hers, as it should be. Let’s call her Terrible, since any cat who stands on the table and… Continue Reading →

Kitty Prime

So, I was settling into the new house with new roomies when one of said roomies mentioned that she had a vested interest in acquiring a cat, or rather a bonded pair of cats so that Cat A and Cat B… Continue Reading →

A Post About A Needle Case

As kind of a follow-up/response/thought sprung from this post, I want to talk about my Stupid Expensive Needle Case. Like I said in my comment over there, of course hammers bring me joy.  I love smashing things.  Sure, I could… Continue Reading →

One More Fishmas Necklace

Please excuse the long silence there! I was busily relocating… into a mountain of snow.  As one does.  And being furious at people from my past, also as one does.  Which isn’t to say I’ve been idle: I have lots… Continue Reading →

Fishmas Necklaces

Super proud of the holiday necklaces for this year! I’d originally planned to do something different for Bangarang, but fell in love with the matte textured cabochons.  The bar beads were kind of a whim.  Also, I promised the person… Continue Reading →

Hey, did I ever tell you about the time…?

That. Just that. The thing I just said. Did I ever tell you about the time? Apparently, I say that a lot, or so I was informed– cheerfully, I should disclaim –at my holiday party for work. And yes, it… Continue Reading →
