My Steampunk Style

I am going for Steampunk Cthulhu, an adventuress who captures the lesser creatures of the mythos. My husband Jayger is my trusting brawn. I have accessories, an underbust corset but no other clothing. I welcome your suggestions.

A reading lesson with Silent Movies

My 9 year old son has learning delays because of cerebral palsy and epilepsy. He has begun to read, but he is often a reluctant reader. Yesterday, I returned home from work to find him sitting on his sister's lap in front of the computer, happily watching Buster Keaton movies on YouTube. Each time words would appear on the screen, my daughter would pause the video and he would read all the words. He loved this reading lesson!

His favorite video was The House to be… Continue

Steamcon report

On October 23rd 2009 I arrived at the Seattle airport, I found my way to retrieve my bag, luckily this time no one gave me any problems with my gauntlet. Then I stood at the shuttle pick up patiently waiting for my transport to the long awaited Steamcon event. I knew that I was probably going to be early for my room but the event had supposedly already begun. I did not mind, I would have… Continue

The Extraordinary Voyages of Baron VonClaus

I am currently working on a character based on the German toy manufacturer Baron Christoph VonClaus. “Chris” Von Claus is a rather stout human male, born in Brandenburg, Germany in the year 1825. His family was well off, but in the 1840s Christoph built an industrialized factory for the manufacturing of his amazing toys. He became independently wealthy with his blockbuster toy 'The wheel and the stick.'

On one of his numerous trips to… Continue

Pondering of the oil lamp vaporizer

As I am awaiting moving to a larger home with a garage, as my mate I think has begun to grow weary of walking around 2 makeshift work stations, one for metal and glass work, and one for fabrics, stains and clays, along with 1 mini chopper in parts and another scooter in pieces awaiting for parts. This maze consuming my kitchen nook and dining room area. I have promised to keep my works to small scale until a garage or den can be allotted to my projects.

My current project that I have… Continue

it continues

The journey continues into the pursuit of building my own airship. The considerations are many as I am finding.

My vision of my airship is filled with dark wood, thick and plush tapestries that cover the furnishings. I am of a mind that there should be a galley as it is fitting to have a place to dine during my travels.

When I see pictures of airships my heart skips a beat and I am prone to get lost in them. Such are the dreams that often find their way into the mundane… Continue
