Focus Month: the craft room

Eek! Kind of far into the month do declare July’s focus, but it’s a (kind of) light one and something that needs to happen. So here goes. One of the beautiful parts of our apartment is the finished attic space that we’re using as studio area. Problem is, my half has been getting things dumped in it (by me) and has become kind of a super mess. So July is all about increasing the usability of that space. I’d like to do a sewing focus month soon, but I can’t…

Some Development

An easy start for this focus month, apparently I’d processed these all the way to web sizing them and then never uploaded. All images link to their Flickr page, where you can view them larger. The image on the left is 2007, image on the right is 2010. Looking at three years of development (and lack thereof) in two planned communities in Forest Grove.

Proof shot via Chase’s phone, hence amazing quality. I mean, now I have to ink it, but I’ll dedicate a month to that. Which is what is so nice…

A Better Birthday

It’s been my birthday weekend, I’ve got the luck to have been born on St. George’s day, which I’ve noted before.  This year it has been great and kind of whirlwind and a well-timed tax return and long-planned time off have eased the fun. We got weekend passes to Bridgetown Comedy Festival, which has been amazing overall.  We lucked out with getting totally acme sets from both Marc Maron and Brody Stevens and a solid Never Not Funny podcast taping, among a score of other performances. A very quick stop…
