Getting the Office and Workshop Set Up

It has been taking a little longer than I had hoped for but it is getting there.
I hope to be back in the groove of crafting and such soon. (As well as updating the calendar!)
Between my health and my regular job, my body has just been pushed to the limits with this move.
It has been a good challenge but I look forward to some down time!

The Move of 2013

Things are almost finalized and my workshop is being packed up along with everything else in the apartment.
We move on June 7 so I might be MIA for a little while or at least until I can get my workshop unpacked and settled in.
Soooooo looking forward to this move. More space and a new place!

Only a little intimidated by the scorpions(=.=;; ), tarantulas (o.o;;; ) and the black and red centipedes... (Seriously! the centipedes grow to like 14 inches... )

Yay for now owning a home in Austin, TX? O.o;;

Let the new adventurous chapter of our life begin!

Cupcakes & Cake

I made cupcakes and cake for my husband to take to work tomorrow… I was in a baking mood.


You could find me at all these spots?

Right now it is closed because of conventions season for me but when things slow down and I can have a steady inventory I will open it back up again. Other orders can be made and I just run them through Paypal direct so feel free to note me about questions on price/availability of items.

This is the largest gallery and most complete gallery of my works. Also has a gallery of Vincent and Jules, my two kitties!

Just getting back into the swing of things again. I pop on periodically and normally during events to post pics, announcements and such.

I post a bit more steampunk related items and articles here. Music posts and neat links run wild here~

I am not very active on it, but I'm there...

Beware, this is more about my personal interests and fun rather than artwork.

Just a few video posts for fun~ Even on of the kitties!

Derp... You found me! :3

In Death's Wake by Gregory Coley

Just got my copy in the mail today! This is the first book cover I have designed and am super pumped with how crisp and clean the printing turned out.
Celebrating with fried rice, hot tea and cuddles on the couch with kitties while I grab a chance to dive into the book tonight!
Want a copy of your own? Check it out here:

Fathom by Ironsun Studios on Kickstarter

I stumbled across this today and I have to say...
O.O Huzzah...
The graphics already look amazing and intricate and the voice over is rather pleasant. Take a moment to see the overview and consider throwing a few coins their way. They are already well on their way to bringing a great concept to reality and need that extra push to make it reality.

They have 14 days to go and still have quite a bit to pull in to hit their goal.
Spread the word steampunks and help make this fantasy a reality!

In Death's Wake by Gregory Coley

Been working on a special project today!
Be on the lookout for a book by Gregory Coley titled In Death's Wake!
We pulled the cover together today and are super ready to get a copy in hand!

Gabriel grew up in an average life and was perfectly happy to keep to the shadows. Now, in the late 21st century, he is drafted into the Second American Civil War. Unknown to him, events had been set into motion that would sign away his life. Selected for mental experiments to see into the minds of the dead, he is discharged from the army like many other test subjects. The experiments have killed many test subjects and the project has been disbanded. After being sent home, Gabriel signs on with the local police force to use his new abilities to make a little money on the side, but did the experiments do more damage than he thought? 
Now in a race against time to stop a serial killer who will do anything to bring him down, Gabriel must be willing to lose everything, including his sanity, to stop the murders. 
What are the wraiths that haunt his dreams? 
Can he protect those he loves from monsters both real and imaginary? 
Did Gabriel stumble onto more than he bargained for when he got caught up in death's wake?

2012 and Health - New Updates to Site!

So many of you probably noticed that my online event calendar kind of stalled at September 2012 last year and that was because it was when my gal bladder decided to cause rampant issues and eventually had to be removed.

This got in the way of me being able to sit around and hunt down events and such but finally I am back on track! Rawr!

Expect the Texas Steampunk Events page to be updated on a monthly basis now. Also, if you have any events to add to the March Line-up or other large events you don't see posted for 2013, please don't hesitate to leave a comment here!

Please include the date, name of event, city it is held in and the website for the event as well.

Glad to get back to the grind stone and ready to start running again when it comes to new jewelry! Lots of evens going on this year and anxious to see all the great people off the community again!
