Great Ozma! Found this in an antique shop, wish I’d had the money to buy it.

Thank you! I’ve been really busy with Namesake and other work, but I hope to write more of them soon as well!


Our SPX haul! We wanted to buy so much more, but since I didn’t find out about SPX until last weekend we didn’t really have time to prepare or save. We ended up having to cash in our change jar to supplement what little we could take out of the budget this month.

But it was worth it! Sooo worth it! Minus some accident related traffic on 495, it was pretty smooth sailing and an easy 2 hours there and then back again. First we visited my main two comic loves, Namesake and Gunnerkrigg Court. Then I had to escape to the hallway to have a happy fit of fangirling and decompress before letting my husband take the lead to see the rest of the tables. We had to escape to the hallway a couple of times for me to take a breather and rearrange my tote bag sized purse. We stayed for a little over three hours, then went to Tyson’s Corner for late lunch/early dinner and to explore. I always hear so much about the place that I couldn’t resist exploring it as it was on the way home. Once we got home I took this picture then more or less passed out.

Some notes on the photo:
-The purple and bee fabric themed purse is the one I most recently made for myself and is in the photo because I bought a cute lion zipper pull from Nonesuchgarden, though it’s hard to see. My bag was such a trooper to carry around so much stuff yesterday!

-The hat is the one I made just for SPX and is fashioned after the Cheshire Cat Wani from Namesake. I am calling this “prototype 1” as it needs some tweaking to be perfect.

-She’s so hard to see, but the little black and white charm in the front is Alice from Dead Winter that my husband bought.

-The only things not pictured are the Call of Cathulu dice as I realized they were still in the bag after much of this was already set up, and the massive amount of awesome and creative cards we collected from our favorite tables.

SPX was a blast and if it’s within driving distance for a day trip again next year, we will definitely be there! This time with a lot more planning and saving done though. Some of the prints and comics had creases in the corner so obviously I need to make a hard sided portfolio to protect them next year! Or, you know, buy one. But that really isn’t my style :P

Another awesome Namesake fan from yesterday at #SPX2014. We’re still at table N5 today!

A kickass Namesake fan and the hat that she made! I might have shrieked. Sorry, table neighbors.

We’re all set up for #SPX2014! Visit the Namesake team at table N5!


As they leave Robin Hood and his merry men behind, the Doctor leans against the console and fights a reluctant smile at what the irritating - and apparently actually real - thief has discovered in his absence. The tale would never be complete without Maid Marian. After all, what is a good story without a love interest?

This is quite possibly the greatest thing that has ever popped up on our dash.

  • breath in for 4 seconds
  • hold your breath for 7 seconds
  • exhale breath for 8 seconds

repeat once or twice more.

This causes an autonomic nervous system shift from a sympathetic (fight or flight reaction) state to a parasympathetic response.

Use this for panic/anxiety attacks, exams, presentations.

Never not reblog

Tumblr got anxiety advice. Fuck yeah.

My therapist recommended this to me, it really works too. It sort of reboots your brain, great for when you’re stuck in OCD thoughts.

I was digging through my old files and I found the first 3 panels of a song illustration (teenagers by EDIT: MCR, IM A SCOURGE) but this was the only one that was linearted. it’s yelling because the colors are yelling at you

Valor bookmarks for #SPX2014! We don’t have many of these. Come grab one at table N5 this weekend!

I’m apparently INFP. It always surprised people when I score on the INFP because I appear more extroverted than I really am. I can just fake it really well.

INFPs are absolute idealists: they have values inside them which they really want to live by. This makes them good at encouraging other people’s growth, but can cause them to be too hard on themselves. They can be shy and reserved, but they’re incredibly passionate and intelligent individuals with an innate need to change the world.

ENFJ! Legit. Fuckin president right here, baby. Even though I cannot even with the formatting of this post…

ENFJs are natural-born leaders, full of passion and charisma. Forming around two percent of the population, they are oftentimes our politicians, our coaches and our teachers, reaching out and inspiring others to achieve and to do good in the world. With a natural confidence that begets influence, ENFJs take a great deal of pride and joy in guiding others to work together to improve themselves and their community.
