Domain issues, long writing breaks, and zombie birthday cakes

Holy hell, you guys, I’m so sorry for disappearing like that. I hadn’t meant to not blog for so long, but I was focusing on jewelry (and summer vacation with the kids) and time just got away from me.

You may have noticed that my blog actually disappeared for a while there. That’s because I forgot to renew domain mapping with WordPress (I hadn’t set it to auto-renew), and my well-intentioned tomorrow in “I’ll renew it tomorrow” ended up being three weeks later. So my sincere apologies for my literal blogging disappearance. It’s all fixed now. And I’m back with A LOT of things to catch up on. (So. Many. Book. Reviews. OMG.) I also have to get back into writing in general, but that’s a different story entirely.

Reading Rainbow resurrected

Also, I like alliteration.

Remember Reading Rainbow? That show that introduced books and the awesomeness of reading, hosted by Geordi La Forge? Sure you do :P.

Anyway. You may have noticed the huge kerfuffle online the last couple days about Reading Rainbow. As in, Geordi La Forge LeVar Burton wants to bring it back (albeit not as a TV show), but instead as a classroom supplement and a web-based program (it’s already an iPad app). There’s currently a Kickstarter campaign to make this happen. (And since it hit its goal on the first day, it will happen.)

A short blogging break

You may have noticed that I haven’t been posting here lately. The reason for that is because I’ve been making jewellery. This isn’t a new thing (I’ve been beading and making jewellery for a few years now). What is new is the fact that I signed up for a market in June (I don’t know; it seemed like a good idea at the time). Right now, my spare time is spent at my work table making jewellery so that I (hopefully) have enough inventory.

Shameless plug time

This will be short, since I don’t always feel comfortable marketing¬† myself (you’d never know I went to business school, seriously).

Ahem. Anyway. I don’t talk about it much, but I make jewellery. I recently decided to try to turn it into a business; I signed up for a craft sale in June and have set up a Facebook page and all that good stuff.

Of course, trying to update said Facebook page is going about as well as updating this blog, so you can imagine how many photos have been posted :P. But, in case you’ve got some free time and want to look at pretty (and possibly shiny) things, visit my pages!
