Oh hullo blog! I know it’s been ages since I’ve posted (February?). I’ve been a bit busy, I can’t even begin to tell you how busy. But I’ll try with a few bullet points
- 2 weeks in Spain
- 1 Library Conference
- 1 root canal
- 1 jury to serve on
- 2 weddings to attend
- Summer at the library to prepare
- Summer at the library
- learning the ukulele
- meeting Wilson Phillips
- Getting ready to attend ComicCon (for free!)
I know I’m missing a lot of things, but really I shouldn’t have to make excuses to you, you’re just a blog. ANYway, the point of this entry is to brag about the things I accomplished today!
Some of them are related to the last thing on the list above. I am so psyched to be attending San Diego ComicCon as a professional (as a member of the TLA Maverick Committee). And I’ll be on a panel with 01: Second Publishing talking about graphic novel awards in libraries. So I decided I wanted to cosplay a bit. One of my costumes is going to be Wonder Woman the Librarian, so I worked on that a bit today.
I found these great earrings at Goodwill and added these comic book-y charms.
Decorated a few Wonder Woman sunglasses too!
I don’t have a picture of my skirt, but I’ll post the whole costume when I’m done with it.
The project I tackled was decided on the spur of the moment. I have a pair of flats that I have walked almost to pieces. I’ve been wanting to paint shoes for a while now, so I decided these would be the guinea pigs. Lisa said they should be Sherlock themed so I made them into Sherlock and John!,
I really like these shoes.
John’s cableknit jumper, and a picture of Martin Freeman for reference and also because he is adorable.
Sherlock’s Purple Shirt of Sex, on Benedict Cumberbatch and on my shoe (it looks better on him, obviously)
A kitteh because John is made of them.
Bartlet is BORED.
Well that’s it for today, I think…
