I'm hosting my second Craftsplosion today. It is in person for my friends, but I'm inviting all the crafty people on Groupthink to participate spend the day crafting (or what time you can spare) and at the end of the day, show what you've done or tell us what you worked on.
Today, I went suit shopping. In two weeks, I'm going to the UK to visit the home office and my usual colorful business casual choices will not work. (I work in insurance.) I needed an additional black or dark grey suit. This, unfortunately, required me to do something I hate. Shop.
Tomorrow, my friends and I are having an "Our Christmases sucked so let's have a do over" party. We're doing a crafty geeky white elephant exchange. This is what I made for it. Hobbit coasters
Yesterday, I hosted what I like to call a craftsplosion at my house for my friends. People brought their portable craft items and we made stuff. We had people sewing, knitting, drawing, painting, and working on homework for their graphic design classes. It was a huge success. I made two drawstring bags to hold…
Spoiler alert....Sort of..
I need someone to get a screen capture of Carrie Underwood's shoes when she is singing 16 going on 17. They look like awesome brown wedges maybe???
Tomorrow is my last day at work. Got a new job and I start next week. I'll miss my co-workers but I'm excited about the new challenge
You don't necessarily need a degree in computer science to work in tech. I know many people (some of them women) who work in tech that don't have a computer science degree. Including some that are younger than me.
I'm going to post the TL;DR on top so that you guys can know what you're getting into before you read the whole thing. My grandma is dying. I don't feel all that sad. Thus, I feel guilty for feeling that way because...Family.

So in 2 and half hours, the madness begins. I'm writing a World War II historical romance about an unexpectedly pregnant preacher's daughter who marries her best friend who then gets wounded and comes back different and they have to figure everything out all over again. It is very melodramatic. This brings me to…
Thank you guys for all the advice on my earlier post about my roommate situation. Since many people were concerned about the legal issues (and rightly so), I think that before I do anything, I'm going to talk to a lawyer friend and find out what my rights are and what hers are and what kind of process this needs to…
Help....I have never ever had to tell a roommate that they can't live here any more. Let me start by saying that I'm lucky and privileged. I live in a place where housing costs are relatively low. I bought a house several years ago and refinanced last year. My mortgage payment is now less than the rent I was…
*I really need to develop a good catalog of GIFs so my posts aren't terribly boring.
I do not have an appropriate gif for expressing my excitement, but rest assured that I am excited about this.
That is the question. I have a novel that has lived in my head for 13 years that I think I'm finally ready to attempt to write. It has all the elements that I love in a romance novel. World War II prettiness and ugliness (both are novel-able). A marriage of convenience. A secret baby. Eventually a broken hero…
Don't read the comments. They are rage inducing. My favorite was the guy that said Columbia was like some sort of homeless vacation destination.
Soooo,....Tonight my friends and I did a tech night for our costumes. Dressing as Bellatrix Lestrange has been a dream of mine for awhile and I'm finally doing it!
