Today was a rough day. Someone didn’t show up for work so I had to do the work of two people. Thank God everyone was patient and understanding of the situation and left the store happy with no complaints. Today was a good day. *WAS* And then, I got a concerned text from a friend. I don’t wanna spill further details because I know I’m … Continue reading Holding on to that Double-Edged Sword
I really don’t like posting about politics and business or anything that relates to those matters. But hey it’s my blog and I’m a little on the sad side right now so I hope y’all can forgive me. First of all, do NOT get me wrong. I love my job and I love my coworkers and my boss. They’re practically family. And with that said, … Continue reading Where Are You, (insert holiday)? Why Can’t I Find You?!?!
I lost all my wisdom teeth + impacted molars a few years ago and the Tooth Fairy still owes me for 8 teeth… that *BLEEEEEP* My filling came out a few months ago and I’ve been re-filling it with them over-the-counter teeth putty.

But I can imagine little Rey just scavenging what she can and, probably because of her lack of sewing skills, she had to use found materials. I’m sorta lucky enough to have materials on-hand except for the orange … Continue reading Raeh Doll

And it’s an added blow when it’s one of your childhood heroes. It hits EXTRA HARD when you find yourself thinking “this could’ve been the Con you were at”… or have to … Continue reading PHX Comicon Arrest
I’ve been collecting Star Wars patches for a while now and I haven’t quite found a perfect vest to house them all in. I was going to revive an old denim vest but, unfortunately, it’s too short for the purpose. And wouldn’t I want a bigger canvas to work on anyway? I have a few jackets I wanted to sacrifice but since I live in Houston, I don’t want … Continue reading Patch Vest Came In
