The Crossroads of the Aether
And here yet through I wander, a corridor met with shade.
No candle light nor lantern, to cause the darkness to abate.
The echoes laugh before me, and after I do pass
They mock the misdirection, and the confusion as it lasts.
Woe to the explorer, that might find themselves about.
For in these dire hallways, only fear is free of doubt.
A right turn then a left turn, and then a left again.
I find myself recounting steps, though my efforts be in…Continue

This is my complete range of steampunk-tinged "Coggingtons" greetings cards to date, with more to come.
A few years ago, while going through a break-up, I had the idea for a picture – a robot holding his mechanical heart out as an offering. A few years later, I decided to put it onto a card and “The Coggingtons” were created.
A year and a half later and the range of cards…Continue

I had a great time at the 2015 Symposium! Made some new friends. Parked the big white truck over in the Sears parking lot at the Mall & were joined later by some moving vans who dropped in to check out the Symposium. I did manage to take a fair amount of photos this time.
In May, we delivered a load to Sears! Too bad I was feeling ill at the time though. Parked at Walmart til I felt better, & drove to a regular truck stop. My teammate has been so excited about the annual, he's…Continue

She should have never showed me the scale. You never look at the scale...especially not when you think you've made progress. The scale is a liar.
Sure, my clothes haven't been fitting me as well as they did a couple years ago. Sure, married life and inactivity have put weight on me. But I don't think I look bad...I'm no lumbering hulk. I'm still skinny.
And yet, when I look at those Lolita dresses I've always wanted to wear, the best ones, the name…Continue

(I'm surprised this wasn't pointed out. I guess no one among my handful of readers is a herpetologist.)
Whoops! I have just learned that snakes DO NOT possess nictitating membranes. What they have is a clear, scale-like covering over their eyes called a brille.
Well, I've clearly established that Sabeetha has nictitating membranes, so she's going to keep them. Besides, I just plain want her to have them. There's no reason Dr. Conroy could not have…Continue

Well, I'm too poor to pull off Teslacon this year so all my energy (and what little time I have) are going into small sellable projects and some new tidbits for Ohayocon in January and the Symposium.
I feel I should drop a teaser or two in here, it may happen...
An upgrade in status at work brings a little bit of relief to the poorness, but there's a great deal more to be done. I have so many projects that I need to get started or complete (not to mention the the typical…Continue

Oh dear, I think I am too wordy for a 140 character reply, so I've added this answer as a blog post. (Forgive me, I am learning the system, and everything takes me twice as long as everyone else, on account of the fact that me and Mr. Time can never agree.)
Hello Steve, Thank you for the invitation to call at the Scribbler's Den.
I hand-make books for costume, story, or just as a beautiful place for jottings, ephemera, notes and collections of thoughts. I combine any…Continue
