Still Alive

Kate recounts the events of the past 7 months in which she has been woefully absent from her blog. It’s chocked full of life events!

Two-Month Update – Busy Bee

Hi Everyone! I have been quite busy in the last few months since my last post in June. I have successfully opened up my Etsy shop, GrafficDesignStudio, and I have had the most wonderful time doing it. I am focusing on Drawstring Bags for dice based roleplaying games and I am excited for what the…

Origins 2016 – Convention

I’ve told you before that I’m a huge nerd, right? Well, this post is going to solidify that fact a little more. Last weekend, the DBF (Darling Boyfriend) and I went to the 2016 Origins Gaming Convention in Columbus, OH and had a super time. I have gone to the convention two times in the…

Project and Life updates

I have survived my first semester of MBA classes and managed to keep up with some of my projects in the meantime, but as you can tell, I didn’t get around to blogging quite as much as I wanted to. I have a two-week hiatus until classes started up again for the summer and so…

Uhhh… Hi

Oh, Hi there… I’m alive. Yep. Still kicking. The MBA program might have sucked more time out of my schedule than I anticipated (sleep? who needs sleep? *glugs 5 hour energy*). It’s also taken out of my yarn time, which makes me a little cranky. Legitimately cranky! I snapped at someone at work and then…

Tales of the Clencher

Good news everyone! The hiatus of crafting didn’t do anything to relieve my jaw pain I talked about last post. So good news is that I’m back at it and crocheting and knitting! I finished up a pair of …. interestingly colored mittens for myself. I received some very warm and cozy yarn skeins of Bamboospun…

Christmas Gift reveal and personal update

Hi Everyone! All the gifts have been given and I got a lot of smiles when they opened the presents, so I consider that a big win! Check out my last two posts for some of the other reveals, this one is sharing all of the other ones (except one, I didn’t get a good…

Marathon Crafting complete!

With a week to spare, I have completed all the gifts I planned on making this holiday season. I am so elated to finally start on something for me (despite how grinchy that sounds!). Here’s a few of the gifts I finished up.   Beholder Helm My brother sent me a post from another crafty lady’s…

Winter is Coming…. Holiday Gift finishing marathon

I hope some of you can relate: I am hurrying to finish my way too optimistic number of homemade gifts this holiday season. I’ve got about 3/4 of them made, and I’d like to share them with you in the next couple of weeks–because heavens knows my family and friends don’t know I blog, haha. I just…

Special Edition Friday – Steampunk

So Next week I will be on Vacation! Woot! I’ll be heading to Beau Rivage in Mississippi with my darling boyfriend’s mother (long story short, boyfriend didn’t want to go on vacation with me because he travels a lot for work so I’m taking his mom!) If you’re not aware of what BR is, it’s…

Making ….. Yarn?

Soooo…. Took a spinning class tonight. I was…. successful in making…. something? It’s very… let’s say, bouncy. Ha-ha. Decided to ply it together to make something resembling yarn. Definitely something that I will have to practice on for a while. Cheers, Kate
