I Illustrated a Children’s Book

January 9, 2018


I just posted about my goals, and this was a goal of mine for 2017. I accomplished it. It took me 9 months to actually do it, although it took me closer to 8 years to get around to it. My dear friend Kristi sent me the story when I moved to Germany, and I […]

How I made a Sebastian the Crab costume for a child

November 2, 2017


I’m recording this for myself, and for others who need to make BASIC costumes for children or photo shoots. We planned a Disney theme for Halloween this year with the girls. I knew a few would be joining us, and wanted everyone to have options to choose from. A group of little girls, I figured […]

Story of my life, reminded in New Zealand

March 12, 2017


No, you won’t be able to come back this way and take that photo tomorrow. This is the story of my life and I think a sound argument against procrastination.

I don’t know why I’m so angry. Maybe angry isn’t the right word. I’m not sure.

March 25, 2016


Sorry I’ve been missing for a while. I’m here and have just been busy. I recently started doing a lot more German to English translation, and  have been teaching more online English lessons on my days off, so life has been pretty hectic. Oh, and we’re taking a short trip for Mark’s birthday next week, […]
