Miniature Distraction

Continuing on with the distractions… I thought I’d put the little cover designs in here that I made for the miniature badges that went into the Etsy sale last month. A couple of the designs never made it – because they were so small that the titles did not show up on the print. Now,…

Armitage University

It is just delightful when I see my silliness reaching others. I just had a notification that somebody bought this on Redbubble: This is the RA-University A-line dress. To be honest, I had forgotten I had designed this. But I can see how it would be perfect summer wear, with its “loose swing shape for…

Meme Friday

We all need a little fun – even if a huge pressure has been lifted on Wednesday. As bad as the situation still is, concerning Covid, at least we now have a “reasonable” person in the White House again, and even though Biden is far from my favourite, I think he will do an ok…

Only One Week To Go…

Good morning. It’s been a good few days since I last posted. What kept me away were work (yay – I am at a point where I am delighted when I have orders for translations or articles coming in…), and my Etsy shop. The latter is really giving me joy. It has been really busy…

RAdvent Calendar 2020 Is On

Yes, it’s happening again. The fun silliness never stops. During those long, empty lockdown days I amused myself with yet another iteration of the RAdvent Calendar. With three years under my belt, I felt this is an established “tradition”, so I had to come up with yet another fest of cheese and cheer. As in…

Sunday Funday

First of all, congrats to the US of A for voting for change. I was delighted to finally hear it confirmed last night that Biden/Harris won the election. No gloating and sneering necessary, the last four years have been divisive enough in the US. And yes, I can see that even though I do *not*…

All Set Up For Whatever Comes

It’s a dull day here in Dublin, but it has just been brightened up considerably. Picture quality could be better, but you can see what I just received in the mail. Our fan artist extraordinaire, Ani, has gifted me this gorgeous brooch that she made. Love it so much – from the choice of image…

A Bit A’ This ‘N’ That

Today’s post comes as a mixed bag of inconsequentialities, both RA-related and OT, just because I have – oh wonder – a renewed urge to write a blog post. It proves a point I made in an earlier post that I am more likely to blog when I need some hobby writing in order to…

Just for Amusement

Good morning. Ah, it’s wonderful when troubled waters are calm again. How about a little bit of harmless entertainment? Have you seen Ella’s blog post yesterday? For the VoD fans among you, she found an interesting side note, regarding Geraldine’s house. The house, located in the village of Dibley Turville is up for sale. For…
