Personal Quote: Truth can be found even in the worst of lies
Nowhere really - I check in on dA daily and go through my inbox with varying degrees of interest and thoroughness.  I just haven't been creating any new art lately.

Writing in the "book-sense" is taking a little hiatus.  I haven't touched my NaNoWriMo piece since December; I finished the Tree Mage story and month or so ago and it's still with the beta readers.  I'm gearing up to tackle "The Kius Planet" for (hopefully!) the last time so I'm in the midst of pre-planning that project.

Writing in the "blog-sense" however have been very busy! (Just not here obviously! lol!)
I have my own writing-related blog now found here:
And I've been writing fairly regular journal posts on a website called The Offbeat Bride.  In fact one of my posts was selected recently as a guest post on the main site page and can be found here:…
That was pretty exciting, though nerve-wracking at the same time as it's a very personal post; happily it's received a positive reception :)

Also Saknika and I have decided to step up our business website a notch and we're going to start blogging there twice a month.  She's taking the 2nd week of the month, I'm handling the 4th week.  We're free to chat about whatever we like (so long as it's business/crafting related of course!)

And that's about it!
My brain is thoroughly focused on the wedding coming up in October and so a lot is on hold till that's out of the way.

Thank you!
I sometimes feel it makes me come across as scattered, but I like to think of it as being multi-talented and interested in many things ;)
Thanks very much for the comments and favs!

A little north of Albany - just outside the Adirondack State Park; near Sacandaga Lake :)

Hi Gwendolyn,

Thanks for complimenting on my work. I must say, although i have yet to see all of your galleries, I'm actually amazed on the kanzashi flowers you've made.

I can draw flowers, but to craft something that pretty earns my envy. You must be talented!

I'm sure I'll be seeing more of your good creation, and wishing you all the best :D
