Chicon 7 came and went, and I blogged about that elsewhere.
A new SF/SF went up, as did a new Geek Girl Crafts Podcast. And I made more stuff on the loom, learning to do decreases and all sorts of other stuff in order to produce the Loom Beaded Necklace of Rassilon!
Been doing more crafting than art recently, though I need to switch gears with Chicon approaching quickly. Still, I’m rather pleased with some of the results, including these vaccuum tube pendants.
Chicon promises to be a relatively low key con for me, compared to Renovation. I’m only on two panels and have no other responsibilities other than hanging my art, so I’m looking forward to enjoying the fruits of everyone else’s labor, eating deep dish pizza, and spending time with John.
Meanwhile, the Geek Girl Crafts Podcast has been going for a year now, and spawned a podzine. SF/SF continues it’s regular monthly schedule, and although I’ve been slacking off on my columnist duties there I have at least continued to maintain the calendar more or less at my usual pace. Luckily there are always plenty of events, and plenty of people interested in knowing about them.
What with Google being all evil again, and also just from a desire to clear up some clutter, I deleted a bunch of stuff yesterday from various accounts. In the process I went through my old Google Docs with the intention of deleting files I already have saved elsewhere, and transferring the rest to Dropbox, which I highly recommend as an alternative.
As it turns out, there were a couple of convention reports and bits of fan writing that I hadn’t archived here, including a Potlatch 18 report (with my favorite GOH experience ever) and an account of the Mutant Enemy Picket Day. While I’m under the hood I also figured I may as well spruce up all that text with links and photos, something I’ve been meaning to do for ages. It’s gonna take forever, but rainy season is finally here and I have no conventions for a month, so the timing is perfect.
Well, Gallifrey One is over and it’s time to be updating things here a bit. I’ve changed the gallery link the more descriptive “arts and crafts” so I can start uploading beading and costuming stuff there as well, which is long overdue. Also added are links to the Geek Girl Crafts Podcast, which I do with Sandy Jacobs-Tolle and Jade Falcon, and to my Artfire Store.
