I Am Ready for The Solstice

It has barely started to look like Spring around here but my mind is already prepared for summer. While skimming through some of my photos I came across last year’s Solstice Parade photos and I was transported to my happy place amongst naked cyclists, zombies pulling floats through the streets, hammocks strung in the trees…

Poke Pillow Tutorial

Lego club ends with a rousing game of “guess the animal I am.” How or why this is such a hit is best left for another day, trust me. Kids jump around the room one a hawk another a worm. “Who am I?” Squirt yells. “Mew.” I say as she crashes to the ground and flops on…

In Over My Head And I’m Ignoring It

A goal without a plan is just a dream. That my friend is the weak of heart. I say leave the plans to mice and men and jump into it blindfolded, feet first. Unless it is the zombie apocalypse. ALWAYS have a plan for the zombie apocalypse. In about three weeks from now I planned…

Historically Accurate Maleficent

Oh Simplicty, destroying the best laid plans. I was going to make Bombshell Batwoman, but with the new Bombshell patterns they released this past week I am just going to cool my jets a bit and see if a Batwoman pattern appears anytime soon. Hey, why reinvent the wheel? If Simplicity wants to make the…

Poison Ivy Shirt Tutorial 

Where did this Batman obsession start? One day my husband decides to read a Batman comic the next day we are trying to figure out Robin timelines, he is trying to convince me that I must read about the Court of Owls, and Batman stickers are covering his laptop. Then the shirts show up. The…

Flash Fiction: The Hoard

One moment my chopper was  navigating its way to the township when it all went wrong. There was an explosion, we were hit. We thought we were the only humans left until we were shot down, but there was no time to process this. Base camp was already transmitting info over the radio as we…

Flash Fiction: The Flash

The flash in the sky was blinding. I was outside when the world just blinked. That’s what is was or at least the best way to explain what happened; it all just blinked. One moment I was watching my daughter, Miko, do flips off her swing, ringlets of hair wildly flying around and then was…

May WIPS.

Ah, May. The month I realize there are less than five weeks of school left and freak out by trying to sew with both hands and my right foot at once in order to get my projects done before I become the full time personal assistant for my kids over the summer. This month I…

Emerald City Comic Con

I’m going to to Emerald City Comic Con, hehe! I’m going to ECCC, haha! I’m going to…WHAT THE HELL DID I JUST WALK IN TO? After falling head over heals in love with cosplay because it is like a very long Halloween (Batman fans see what I did there?) I needed to go to a…

The One Shoed Raven of Emerald City Comic Con

There comes a point when the ideal of sailing into a deadline with comfortable room to spare collides with the reality of situation. Last night I realized Emerald City Comic Con was 10 days away. Cue panic attack. Quick rundown on where I stand: Starfire: Done. Raven: Almost there. Beast Boy: Fuhgeddaboudit. Yes, it may seem…
