Pride (or is that an oxymoron here?)

July 15, 2011

I’ve hit the mother lode! My friend Justin brought over a huge box of vintage cookbooks for me– you know the kind your grandmother or mother had, with the really gloriously colorful, tacky photos in it? Well, my favorite is this one, and especially the wonderful photo recipe for this frosting party dress–click on it […]

Sew, yeah… I am becoming my mother

June 16, 2011

Tonight I’m taking a sewing class at a local sewing shop called Home Ec. Studio in South Park. This is all part of my trying to be more creative thing. Have you been to South Park lately? It’s really become such a cool place to hang out. Lots of new shops– one of my new […]

Happy New Year! (can I get a woot woot for 2011?)

December 31, 2010

I was thinking that putting a picture from The Poseidon Adventure on my New Year’s blog entry might be too foreboding but what the hell! I love the movie– you know, massive tidal wave flips over a cruise ship and survivors, including Shelley Winters, Red Buttons, and Pamela Sue Martin, have to climb their way […]

Sneak Peek

October 5, 2010

This is from a new project I’ve been working on– will be seen in a Queer Zine that’s coming out at the end of the month or early in November. I’m also going to get out more postcards– yes, I know, I still owe some of you your postcard, i’m sorry it’s so late! I’m […]

Idle Hands

August 28, 2010

Finished my first week back teaching after a far-t00-idle summer. Four classes and a fifth starts in October. I need to be busy again. Busy-ness makes me feel better. Having things to do, having places to be and responsibilities. I’d like to think it pushes me creatively, too. This summer was just a wash–too much […]

You’ve Got (Late) Mail: Postcards

August 11, 2010

Remember the Writing Marathon I did back in May? We raised 17,000 dollars and I promised every person who sponsored me would get a handmade, original postcard. Well, I’ve been slow to get them out but they ARE going out. So if you’re someone who’s waiting for a postcard it’s on its way soon, I […]

So

May 22, 2010

How does time slip away so fast? I was just saying to my buddy Eduardo yesterday that days and weeks and months just fly by now that I’m a grown up. I remember being in junior high or high school and feeling as if the days and weeks dragged on. Now I wish they would […]

Room To Write

February 21, 2010

<–got this photo at an antique store just outside Johnson Vermont last month. On the back it says “Uncle Fred’s brother Alvin. Hazel’s father.” Today had one of the longest (and most productive) days of writing since I got back from Vermont. Also, kind of nice to go with the hubby and write. We went […]

Stories on Postcards

February 18, 2010

Those who know me know that I LOVE postcards– well, vintage postcards anyway. And, making my own. (more samples on my Flickr page to the right–>) Sometimes my friends, like Peter and Jess, give me old postcards they find or old family postcards–especially Jess, whose family seems to have thousands of them. here’s one.  don’t […]

Madness

February 16, 2010

Still making my way through John Cheever’s bio; I should have taken it to Vermont with me, but instead I took the Journals of John Cheever (which is almost the same thing). Great quote from Cheever, though (from pg. 375 of the bio): “Why, I wonder, should my admirers always be mad.” –does this make […]
