This is the grand list of everything currently available.

All the shinies. SO MANY SHINIES.Collapse )

ArtLog: hey, Beads of the Month people?
elf hill
I am bead shopping. Today I saw some wonderful things. If a couple of you order a package or two, I can send some of the wonderful things to you.

...lure, lure, lure...

(Also, expect me to show you some lovely new shinies as soon as I get home from my road trip. I've been making many things!)

Check it out waaaaay down at the bottom of Current Shinies. Offer goes until the owls are gone or my fit of whimsy passes.

ArtLog: a tease of names
elf hill
Yep, there's new stuff coming.

"As Did They"

"The Eminence"
"Origin Story"
"The Worldbuilders"
"Yet Another Charm Against Disemvowelment"

...and there's a lot more I haven't tagged yet, and Delia has some goodies, so I think we'll do something special here soon. Watch this LJ, eh?

slow lioness
elf hill
There will be some delays until regular Lioness service is resumed. The Lioness has a sprained neck. There are ice packs and there is medication and there is also sleeping a lot, at the moment. And then waking at odd hours because one slept a lot during the daytime.

OK, back to sleep again. So tired.

tell me something good?
elf hill
Sometimes I ask "Tell me something good?" when I'm having a difficult day and would like to improve it by seeing the good through someone else's eyes. Today I'm asking because I'm celebrating! (OK, it's a small thing, but a very encouraging blood pressure reading is cause for celebration right now. Especially a very encouraging one after a series of somewhat encouraging ones. Progress? It could be!)

So. Tell me something good?

de-stressing: friends-reading-list pruning
elf hill
I'm pruning my friends-reading-list radically -- not because I don't like you guys, but because never being able to get through reading the whole list is stressing me out.

(I may actually prune the whole thing down to zero. We shall see.)

Thanks for understanding. I intend to deal with the current health stuff and continue making excellent shinies -- and get to more conventions, because it's been excellent to see so many fine people lately. (Hi!)

(It's also possible that if I take you off the friends-reading-list, I've forgotten who your delightfully cryptic LJ name connects to. Please to forgive. Bear of little brain and much stress. Ergo de-stressing.)

ArtLog: pointer to new shinies
elf hill
There are a few new things in the Current Shinies post; I've bold-faced them for your ease in finding them.

More to come when I get some spare time from CONvergence. Whee!

convention plannage and wild ideas
elf hill
Over the weekend, some lovely folks made a pretty strong case for me attending FOGcon. Thoughts?

Any other conventions I should add to my list of possibles?

a bit of a blur, but a really nice blur for the most part
elf hill
Thank you to everyone who was part of the kaleidoscope of excellent moments at 4th Street. Especial thanks to Lynne and Bear for coming to get me from Urgent Care, and keeping me company at the pharmacy while they filled the prescription, and to Scott for being awesome.

Brief mention of mild eye injury inside; avoid if you ick out at that sort of thing.Collapse )

Love to the music-makers, and to the conversation-sharers. That was a lot of fun. As always, there was not enough time to hang out with all the folks I wanted to see and the nifty new folks I was meeting. I hope there were very good things for all of you, and that you get caught up on sleep very soon now.

I plan on doing that real soon myself, and then continuing my Heinlein chronological re-read in between working on a huge pile of shinies for the Worldcon dealers room.
