I can't sleep. Tomorrow (today? It's is after midnight... Today) we bury my cousin. She had brain cancer, and she fought so hard. I'm really messed up by this. Growing up, Diana was that cool older cousin you just hoped against hope that you could maybe possibly be something like. She was, to the day,… Continue reading My Breaking Heart
Long story short? Don't kick a pipe. Especially if you're not wearing steel-toed shoes. So yesterday morning I was cleaning the piggies' cage. A gross thing that has to happen regularly. Pet ownership is a joy, yanno? So we have this copper pipe that we use for when the poops clog the vacuum hose. It… Continue reading Stuck in a Walk-in Clinic

It’s been too long since I have posted. I could blame a lot of things – craft shows, personal problems, life getting in the way. But the truth of the matter is, I just hit a block. Specifically, I hit an executive functioning block. Don’t worry – my final installment in the organization series is… Continue reading Where Did I Go? Executive Functioning and Getting Back on Track
I have a couple of posts ready to be put up. However, I'm having computer problems, so hopefully I get them figured out soon. Just thought I would let everyone know that yes, I still exist, and I am still doing This Thing. Woo!

CW: eugenics, abortion Saturday morning I was scrolling through Twitter while I decided whether or not go back… Continue reading A Woman’s Right to Choose vs. Disability Rights: When Your Own Ideologies Conflict
It's WIP Wednesday again! This week, we're looking at the progress made on the three from last post, plus a new project. The newest project is based on H.P.

While… Continue reading WIP Wednesday: Progress on Sweater, Drinking Bird, Norwegian Cats!, & “Cthulhu fhtagn”
Organizing Your Craft Room (and Yourself) on the Cheap Pin this post to your favourite Pinterest Board! Part 2: A Cluttered Room Equals a Cluttered Mind.

As a crafter living with ADHD, I have struggled for a long time with organization. My mom used to refer to my bedroom as "organized chaos."

I was officially… Continue reading Organizing your craft room (and yourself!) on the cheap
