1. Trying to make proportions work with people… Difficult. Sorry I haven’t updated in a while I’ve gotten very very busy.

     

  2. A little thing I did to try to learn some things about soundwaves. It has a play on words/pun thing (think Lost in Translation) and features a word which I am fairly sure I made up - Trans-Atlanticism; a strong desire to cross the Atlantic.

    PS sorry about the glut of harmonies I use them to compensate for my mediocre voice.

    I lost a good friend, the other day
    She caught a plane and flew away
    I miss her
    Already

    I lost another, to the sea
    It said to him come sail with me
    He caught a boat
    And was gone

    And I guess that you could say
    Both of them were lost in
    Trans-Atlanticism today

    They’re not the first
    Won’t be the last
    Someday my time will
    Come to pass
    And I will leave this place

    And I guess I’ll have to say
    That I was found in Trans-Atlanticism
    Today

     
  3. This is a Halloween costume I made for my sister a couple years back. We had just seen the Alice in Wonderland movie, and Shannon really liked the dress Alice wore when she was in the Red Queen’s castle. In the movie the dress was made of curtains because Alice had grown huge for some reason I can’t remember anymore. The white part of this dress was also made out of an old curtain that I printed/painted. The tulle I had to buy and but the solid red fabric was also repurposed.

    Oh and (at the time) we didn’t have a rabbit so we made do with a white chicken.

     
  4. So I found this fabric at my local thrift shop. It had a nice flow to it and it had a funky pattern so I said why not and purchased it for a whopping 2 bucks. I finally got around to making something with it and was wearing it when my parents had a little gathering up at our place. The nurse that was there when I was born happened to be there (small towns amirite?) and right away she asked me if I had made the dress. Turns out the fabric had been hers, and she had been given it ten years before while on a trip to Morocco.

    I like to be reminded every now and again that fabrics have histories. Who bought this thinking they would get around to using it eventually? Who finally cleared out their fabric stash? Who just couldn’t resist buying a few meters on a vacation even though they couldn’t sew?

    I just really like fabric.

  6. This horse’s name is Babe. It is not my horse. But if it were I would tell it, “that’ll do pig” after every ride.

     
  7. I don’t listen enough. I wish people we clickable, and you could choose which one would speak at any given time.

     
  8. Island Kraken
    A very rare creature that even when seen is not usually recognized as a kraken. A slow moving peace loving kraken, most specimens spend their entire lives in one location. However, some, known as rouge krakens, can drift at a rate of two rotations of the Earth a year. This kraken is shown in its mating display. When they are ready to find a partner, female island krakens produce a bioluminescent display. It is thought that any animals or plants that live on the kraken’s back gain magical powers. Their island-like backs can grow is a variety of shapes, and be up to 5000 square miles large (see Hawaii’s Big Island).
    Island kraken mothers are thought to lay their single egg in underwater volcanos, where the baby kraken can be incubated until the volcano erupts and the baby hatches out.
    World pop. Unknown

  10. I was listening to the Magnetic Fields album “69 Love Songs” and my hand slipped.
