Gearing up for my first Artist Alley experience

The Key Lime Pie Earrings are my most popular earrings, and I'm the most proud of these (I made those tiny lime slices myself!).
I’ve gone to a lot of conventions over the past few year, but I’ve never worked a booth or a table. That’s all about to change at Kollision Con!

Is Nicolas Cage a real-life vampire?

If this isn't a photograph of the immortal Nicolas Cage, then we definitely found his doppelgänger.
Vampires have been all the rage in pop culture over the past few years. Not being a huge vampire fanatic myself, even I have Vampire Diaries recorded on my DVR every week.

ThunderCats (2011) Review

I’m ashamed to admit that I actually forgot the new ThunderCats series was premiering last week. As of late, most of my television viewing has been via Netflix Instant Queue. For some reason I thought the series wouldn’t begin until August. I searched the internet high and low to find out when an encore presentation... Read more »
