Photography: Hanging with my favorite person

Whoa… the time is flying by! It’s so busy in the real world that I’ve been scrambling to find time to do something as simple as sit down and compose a post to my website. Sadly my personal websites have been suffering, however I’m still maintaining my business sites. This week was busy meeting up […]

Know your worth: Harlan Ellison — Pay the Writer

  Harlan Ellison: Pay the Writer Recently on Ravelry, there was a discussion about knitting and how much one should charge for their work. I’m not selling any of my crocheted items yet. I’m still learning, but I do see many crocheters and knitters undervaluing their work. Well, guess what? This applies to any profession. When […]

Finished object Friday; Crocheted (dread)loc wrap

Since I opted to black out my websites in protest of PIPA/SOPA I didn’t have the opportunity to participate in Work in Progress Wednesday, however I have finished the dreadlock wrap that I was working on last week. I added about two inches to the back of the wrap, and I added a flower. A […]

What is SOPA and PIPA? How it could this bill change your internet experience (if passed).

Naturally this is great news, but is something to keep a close eye on to make sure that these bills aren’t tacked on to other bills. If you’re […]

Noodles and veggies in spicy garlic sauce

Yesterday afternoon I prepared this simple dish; noodles and vegetables in a spicy garlic sauce. The next few weeks will be extremely busy, and so just tossing a few extra ingredients to foods I’ve already prepared; rice, beans, and pasta… will be common. My vegetable pasta is actually made from vegetables but yesterday I used […]

SOPA/PIPA: Going Dark on Wednesday, 01/18/12

As you travel the net, tomorrow, you might notice that some of your favorite websites are inaccessible. The reason is simple, some websites are Going Dark, to protest Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) and Protect IP Act (PIPA). I’ve read about these two bills last year, and over the past few months the outrage amongst those […]
