Bridging the gap between computers and pretty dresses.
Interests: Deborah. I like caves and crystals. I am a picky purse collector, art adorer, necklace hoarder. I like to play host and bake things of a vegan nature. I could say I am a crazy cat lady but I don't think there's anything crazy about loving cats. I love to travel and decorate my house, though I have to do it when money allows like the mere mortal I am. Dresses are my clothing of choice with things I make to match. Books are my Gods. Comics my Goddesses. Legos, female actions figures and unicorns. Getting ready to publish my first Young Adult Novel and My First Story Book. Welcome!

OK-the title is silly but it occurred to me that I do not like the phrase Throwback Thursday. But I do like the idea of sharing past experiences. San Diego Comic Con is happening this weekend and I am not at it. I have never been in attendance despite the... Continue reading

I have been reintoduced to a pizza place here in Minneapolis the last couple of months. When Galactic Pizza first opened, I was pretty excited about having another vegan pizza option. I went there three times before giving up on it. I would have terrible experiences all three times. Bad... Continue reading

I actually saw this exhibit of Matisse about two months ago. But with working on my book and launch party, I've been unable to share it. The exhibit was at the M.I.A. and I went on the same day to see the The Art in Bloom exhibit for 2014(which I... Continue reading

I have been one very busy lady. But I am so happy and proud of what I've been doing. Over the last 8-9 years I've been slowly putting together ideas for a new young adult science-fiction series of books. I never really sat down too much to write a whole... Continue reading

Mad Mex was a place I ate at twice in Pittsburgh and it was so good! Very vegan friendly, nice staff and the portions were CRAZY. I loved the tofu tacos. Go here if you can. Some pics from my phone. They're not great but you get the idea. Continue reading

I didn't know too much about papercuts. I've seen smaller ones and have always thought they were cool. Of course, when we are kids we try our hand at making paper snowflakes. Recently, I went to one of my favorite places in Minneapolis, the American Swedish Institute. I love going... Continue reading

Part of this post is a little bit cheating as I wrote the encounter with Keanu Reeves several years ago. I have realized recently how relevant it is at the moment to my nerves about hosting a party for the launch of my first young adult novel. It will be... Continue reading

Last month's trip to Pittsburgh took me to the Carnegie Museum of Art. It's not a large place but it is a lovely place. I found several new pieces to add to my favorites list. Continue reading

As with most places I've been, the hardest meal of the day to find vegan was breakfast. Often when traveling we'll just go to a grocery store and get breakfast things since this is made easier by the prevalence of kitchens in hotels and through airbnb. But there's usually one... Continue reading

I meant to put this up a couple of months ago but did not for some reason. I put up my Ferris Wheel Jewelry Holder How-To. Well this goes along with that post and it is also an easy alteration. I made this to go on my dresser to display... Continue reading

I think this may be the 4th time I've been to the Art in Bloom event at the M.I.A. I have to admit that I really like it. Most of the crowd is older. And I do mean much older. I imagine women who have more free time in their... Continue reading

I haven't done this in a few weeks. I've been working on editing my book and that is taking up a lot of time. I am trying to get back to working on blogging. I am still not where I want to be with it. Be that as it may... Continue reading

It is a permanent display! It's in Pittsburgh, PA in between the two main buildings of the Carnegie Art Museum and Natural History Museum. They win all sorts of awards for their work. I just loved it.

Hello Vanessa! I know you've moved past the rock post but you did inspire this group of photos to go on my blog. http://girlygeekchic.typepad.com/girlygeekchic/2014/05/hillman-hall-of-minerals-and-gems.html Have a lovely day! Deborah

I suppose it comes with the love of jewelry and making things to be terribly fond of geology. Nestled in between the main buildings of the Carnegie Museum of Natural History and the Carnegie Museum of Art sits the Hillman Hall of Minerals and Gems. It is a place filled... Continue reading

During my recent trip to Pittsburgh I visited the hauntingly beautiful Allegheny Cemetery. I really enjoy walking through cemeteries for the simple fact that they are so quiet. You often will see animals and birds nestled among the departed. I stop and read headstones and wonder what people were like,... Continue reading

I'm feeling the mood to share flowers and more flowers not food. So I am going to load this page up today with pictures from my visit to the Phipps Conservatory in Pittsburgh. I was there two weeks ago and wow, wow, wow what a great place! Pittsburgh it's self... Continue reading

I've been looking at travel sites to find out things there are to do in the Twin Cities that I don't know about already. Turns out there is a fair amount of places to visit. One of the newer to me places I went recently was The Bell Museum of... Continue reading

I came across these photos from about 5 years ago or so from a day that I went to the Stone Arch Bridge Festival and then started to explore the area. You can climb down to the banks for the Mississippi River and see some of the mill ruins. Mostly... Continue reading

If Lord Mouse came here I would put him in charge of my very bratty cat Charlotte Charles. I have another cat, Truman who would be his adviser of ruling over Charlotte until she was of age to take over the cat kingdom. Until such time, Charlotte most certainly needs to be in many, many pictures with Lord Mouse. Peace between the species and all that! :o)
