Minneapolis, Minnesota
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!

Hooray! Thank you Vanessa, I'll email right now. I can add it to my other Vanessa Magazine articles. Like Where Women Create! Deborah
Is it too late to enter? I could use some inspiration around here. Minneapolis is a grey and dreary place right now! Congratulations! Deborah

Freezing in the slippery dark to take some snaps of the Luminary Loppet. It's a pretty event. I am not very good at photographs in the dark. Ok it was also negative degrees outside and windy so I did try. It's not easy to balance a camera on ice but... Continue reading

Gorkha Palace is so yummy. I hadn't been here in a few years. Which is a sad state of affairs. I have however, been eating the veggie momos with tomato chutney every chance I get at the Mill City Farmer's Market. I got to go to the restaurant a couple... Continue reading

There are some sad and frustrating things happening in my life right now. When my mom died some years ago, it was suggested to me to find some sort of not serious creative outlet. I started making little handmade pieces of jewelry to distract myself. I never thought I'd still... Continue reading

I was just at the MIA this weekend for the Habsburgs exhibit(what a bunch of inbred weirdoes) (but worth it to see the Werewolf Syndrome painting). It was the first known case to be documented. *source of picture unknown I was not allowed to take pictures in that exhibit but... Continue reading

So, I have completely and totally messed up this whole In Summation posts. I can't even tell you why. However, I can tell you that I am picking it back up and again. I am going to start with a funny story from my last job at the bookstore I... Continue reading

So maybe it's not sophisticated music. I dunno. What I do know is that Dada Life is about as much fun as you can have both listening to them and seeing them live. I have seen their show twice now and I just love it. It is high energy and... Continue reading

There are very few creatures I love more than Butterflies. I learned quite a lot here. Including that if you send the Save Our Monarchs Foundation $25 they send you a 100 milkweed packets. My balcony garden will be tripling in size this year. If you don't have $25, you... Continue reading

I keep reading about France and thinking about how there is a persecution complex that runs rampant in this country and is decried as an attack on freedom when in fact it's usually just people whining. What happen in Paris is a real attack on freedom of expression and should... Continue reading

I have now been to 11 different Minnesota wineries. A couple of them I've visited more than once. I'm not an expert but I do have a little experience. Well, back at the start of November before all the holiday insanity hit me I went to the one that I... Continue reading

I did not get accepted to a craft show that I applied to be in this year and was pretty discouraged. But with some help of one very supportive helper elf, I hosted a 2nd Open House this past weekend and I am so glad I did. It went even... Continue reading

A few years ago there was an Indian restaurant in Columbia Heights, MN. that I just loved. A few months after my "discovery" of it, it caught fire and burned down. I was very disappointed. Fast foward a few years and earlier this year I find myself out in St.... Continue reading
