I have two things I'm very excited to discuss in this post! Let's start with the shorter one: You may have seen this kind of art before: you take a cracked sidewalk and try to find a creature inside it. Carla Sonheim has at least one excellent tutorial on this. My grandma has been compiling … Continue reading A Knight and a Show
I took Ceramics over the past semester. It was a time of frustration, joy, frustration, possibly a few tears, and lovely older ladies who practically live in the studio and bake sugary treats for their 'tribe'.

One day, I opened a file shared by CWW (the writing club I'm part of) to see the first chapter of an entirely new project I'd never heard of. This was last summer or so. As I read down the page - I couldn't believe my eyes. Who wrote this? It sent thrilling shivers down my neck, … Continue reading Read Lilithantha; A Most Wonderfully Gruesome Tale – a book by my incredibly talented friend
