contest season!

since i'm vending at urban craft uprising in december, i'm having a contest every other week until the show!

this week, i'm giving away these two paintings to one lucky winner!

if you'd like to enter to win, click here for details!


sorry, still nothing about california. i did have a really good time. i'm just slammed until, uh, december? i will, honestly, try to have some recaps up sometime this week.

until then, why not check out some of the halloween lanterns that i've been making. (i have to make halloween decorations when i can so these are pretty early this year.)

here's eli from "let the right one in".


and a texting franklin (from "true blood") lantern.

yes, i misquoted. no, i do not care.

i'll be painting in the corner over there ---> if you need me.

things that happened while i was on vacation

i'm still sick but i'm so far behind on everything that i don't have time for "luxuries" like, you know, illness anymore. today you'll be getting a brief update of what happened while i was gone.

ca updates are forthcoming. it's a daunting task. we did a lot and there's too much to write about while i'm still feverish.

ok, so update...

j and d gave us some of their peppers that they somehow managed to grow in this freakish whorepiss of a summer.

i will probably use them in an orange chicken dish. thanks, guys!

here are all of the tomatoes that i managed to eek out without the benefit of the sun or temps over 70 degrees f.

naturally, none of them have ripened. i've got bananas though so i'll see if they'll work their magic. otherwise, we'll be eating a lot of fried green tomatoes. (those are black krims and amish paste for those of you keeping score.)

padre sent some dill pickle chips. they were delicious after a long train trip.

the best thing that happened, however, was the arrival of my signed copy of the name of the wind!

patrick rothfuss is a total sweetheart! not only does he sign books for his fans outside of scheduled public appearances, but he also included a lovely note! (i sent him some of the paintings that i've been working on this year. honestly, i was only expecting him to sign my book! the note was a wonderful surprise!)

(oh, if his assistant somehow finds this post, i apologize for my horrible penmanship. i really appreciate all of your extra effort in assuring that i received my book! thank you!)

i'm going to end this post on that heartwarming note. please know that ca trip updates will be posted soon, in all probability over the next five or six days. i'll be playing catchup at my other blogs so there's that stuff to read in the mean time.

sorry, still no post

i've slept 28 of the last 30 hours and will probably continue in that fashion today. sometime this week though, i'll get caught up here.

another week that you wouldn't care about

the past seven days were spent organizing the house (again), preparing for the trip to cali and starting to plan our trip to london.

it's overkill, i know but i don't care. we're seriously excited about heading to england and wales.

i'll be in cali next week! yay!! (thanks to l for house/catsitting for us! and thanks to slogrl for all the wonderful things she's done for us!) there probably won't be an update here until the middle of next week. if you're looking for something to read, stupid fucking awesome is set to autopost as is nonsensical caldera.

another option is to check out my xtranormal movies where i make things like this:

see you soon with pics from the train and slotown!
