21st Century Fox just bought the National Geographic Society… or as they had already started spinning the message, “creating a for-profit joint venture that encompasses the National Geographic Channels cable television group along with National Geographic’s other properties”.

Well, there goes one of the great magazines of the world!

Can you say bring on National Geophobic?

May the Fourth, or Star Wars Day (from the pun May the Fourth be with you), just passed as I write this. But what if you missed it, didn’t celebrate it, or didn’t have enough fun?

Well, I’ve got the perfect second chance day for that!

Welcome to May the Sixth, punning on that most evil of Star Wars organizations, the Sith!

If you missed May the Fourth, shame on you! You deserve a Sith coming your way!

If you didn’t celebrate May the Fourth, really shame on you! You deserve a Sith Lord and then some!

And if you didn’t have enough fun, here’s your chance to have some more fun! I got some little graphics below for you to start and share.

Enjoy and May the Sixth be with you! ;)

Chúc mừng năm mới! from your Vietnamese blogger!

It is the Chinese year of the “yang” starting Feb 19 2015 to Feb 7 2016. You’ve probably heard it as the year of the Sheep, Ram or Goat, but that’s because in Mandarin, the word for all three and some other hoofed animals is “yang”. Additional descriptors to “yang” identify them more specifically.

I’ve posted a lot of clothes I’ve designed and made on this site. However, the clothes have been mostly shown on a dress form, lying around or in terrible selfies I take. Recently, I was very fortunate to have had the chance to be in a few photos with Geena Grim of Grim Photography. This one is of me in the New Orleans Saints fleece coat I designed and made two years ago (more details in the link).

Thanks, Geena! And assistant Ken! I hope to have a few more in the future. In the meanwhile, please visit her Grim Photography page to see more of her beautiful work!

Happy New Year, everyone!

Facebook recently did their annual year in review summary for people to post and/or customize if they wished to, which gave me an idea for a thought and/or writing exercise.

If you were to do a review of your 2015 a year from now, what would it look like?

What do you have coming up that you are planning? What are you hoping for in 2015, whether you do it or it happening to you? Long shot or slam dunk?

Take a little time to think about it all and I hope you’ll like what you come up with!

Best wishes for a joyous and prosperous 2015, everybody! Thanks for coming by my blog!
