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!

You can spend so many hours wishing you were somewhere else. Adventure seems miles away and imagination awash in beige walls. Windows filled with daydream clouds drift in and out of the crystal blue sky leading the way to a magic filled world. If only you knew the right path... Continue reading

A few years ago, my significant other and I went on an anniversary trip to Duluth, Minnesota. Duluth is an astonishingly beautiful place and is visited by 3 million tourists every year. It sits on the gorgeous rocky shores of Lake Superior. I fell immediately love with Duluth on my... Continue reading

When Amazing Thailand first opened, I was pretty excited to have a new Thai place in walking distance from my house. Disappointingly the first couple of visits yielded only "ok" food in my opinion. Despite the atmosphere being so beautiful and lovely, the food wasn't too great. The cocktails were... Continue reading

This is a collection pics from my phone from places I've visited the last couple of weeks. I didn't take enough pictures at each place to warrant a full post but they still deserve a mention. Especially since you can just see cool things in the most random of places... Continue reading

So, the Science Museum of Minnesota is currently hosting the COOLEST dinosaur exhibit. It is called ULTIMATE DINOSAURS. Sorry about the capital letters but it is VERY EXCITING! There was only one dinosaur that I had ever seen before. They were all new to me which blew my mind. I... Continue reading

Hi Vanessa! I get so embarrassed entering contests for some reason or leaving comments. But I would love to be entered into this one. Spring has not come to Minnesota so your beautiful flower pictures add some cheer to the Midwest. Have a lovely weekend, Deborah

As I am getting itchy for my next trip(soon!) I thought I would do a Throwback Thursday post from my visit to the Tower of London in March 2007. What a fascinating place. It was such an interesting day. Forgive the picture quality. I only had a point and shoot... Continue reading

I have posted about Mn Sea Life once before. I went on my second visit there and I decided it deserved another post because it's just so cool. I appreciate places like this because I would not get to see so many of these creatures nor learn about them and... Continue reading

Our first winery trip of the year took place at Northern Vineyard Winery in Stillwater, MN. This one is different because you don't actually go to the winery. They have a store front on the main street of the town. It is a very cute place, the whole town that... Continue reading

I've spent the last few weeks cleaning out my office from top to bottom. Folders, nooks, crannies, over stacked piles. As I've been doing this I've been finding fun things I forgot about. One of these things is my sketch notebooks full of clothings designs. I haven't done this in... Continue reading

Sometimes I am late to the party. That is for sure. Such is the case with Modern Times Cafe. I don't know how long it's been around but I sure wish I had been going there for as long as it's been open. It's not a very big place and... Continue reading

The first time I knew of someone writing about something I made was very exciting. Here is a link to the lovely Hannah's blog musing about the earrings she bought from me. I've recently been collecting photos from friends who have purchased things from me and I love seeing my... Continue reading

Things are slowly getting back to normal with the cats around here. Lots of giving of meds, diet monitoring and general grumpiness with the furry ones has been the standard the last month. It really does seem like Feburary is the worst month no matter what, doesn't it? With March... Continue reading
