Winter perks.

Somewhere on every photographer’s blog you will likely find an entry about winter sunrises. The cliché is not without merit, since sunrises are far, far easier to be awake for at this time of year. Harder on the fingers, when the windchill dips to the -20C range, but you’re more likely to be up anyway….

Reboot

Life has been frantic to the point of chaos this fall, but it’s looking like I may be able to simplify a little and get some semi-regular blog posts and photography accomplished. I picked up an iPhone 5 and am finding that the camera is adequate, but the interface is lovely. Have to figure out…

Return to the blog

I’m not going to play catch-up and try to fill you in right away on what has been going on in my life over the past years. Suffice it to say that I have been making things, that I have changed directions slightly (or at least, broadened my creative scope) and that I have continued…

Starting anew

I stopped writing this blog quite a while ago for a variety of reasons, most of which had to do with a lack of time, an abrupt change in lifestyle and working conditions and, frankly, running out of things about which to write.  Facebook also contributed to my blogless life, as it is much easier…

It’s been a busy few months…..

Since May, I’ve had relatively little time to post. I suppose I could have made more time, but family, being outside, work and the mundane vagaries of everyday living always seemed to get in the way. The main factor has been adding a forty-hour per week job to my already full life. In May I…

Absentee, that’s me.

Over the past month or so, I haven’t spent much of my spare time in front of a computer. Between Katherine, the dogs, the garden, the unexpected arrival of summer and spending time with John, my free time has more or less vanished. I suspect it’s primarily due to the nice weather and the intensive…

Thinkity-think

I am apparently thought-provoking. Whodathunkit. Paula (The Quilter) tagged me as a blog that makes her think thoughtful thoughts and has awarded me a Thinking Blogger award. She very kindly also included a link explaining the concept of the Thinking Blogger Awards, which I pass along here for those curious enough to follow just one…

Feast or Famine

Some days there is really nothing worth blogging about. Lately, a lot of my days have been like that. Things are happening, work is getting done, but none of it has been of particular noteworthiness. Now, suddenly, I find that have plenty on which to write; work in progress that is finally at the point…

Separation anxiety

I’ve been dithering lately on whether my wool and sock posts should be in my other blog, which is primarily dedicated to fibre arts. I’ve decided (after an incredible amount of waffling) that I’ll leave them here, unless they in some way become a part of my work. This decision is a double-edged relief, in…

Networking

Found this neat little site that plots a graph to depict the interconnected nature of your website or blog. Watching it unfold is particularly nifty. There’s also a Flickr tag for posting and viewing the results. The graph for this blog is the image below. Makes you realise how quickly use of your site can…

Found this neat little site that plots a graph to depict the interconnected nature of your website or blog. Watching it unfold is particularly nifty. There’s also a Flickr tag for posting and viewing the results. The graph for this blog is the image below. Looks a bit like Queen Anne’s Lace…. What does your…

Six unfathomable things….

You are all about to enjoy a taste of voyeurism (unless you stop reading now) as I reveal six things about myself that few others know. You can thank Ryan, at Skullduggery, for this one. I still buy a new, special pen at the beginning of every semester, even though I haven’t been in university…
