This is hanging in his room now. Crafty funtimes with @juleslep today! 236/365 #yearofmaking #kidcrafts
Tiny crack is all that remains from the superheating last night. Phew! It’s certainly darkened a lot in colour, but who cares?! I’m going to make another small batch this week to experiment with putting it in the freezer. #soapmaking #soap #chemistry
I was shocked to realize it had been five months since I last made soap. Shocked I tell you. Tonight, @juleslep and I made cocoa butter honey soap, and seem to have applied solid lessons learned during my first attempt at honey soap a few months ago, which involved, shall we say, some runaway chemistry. I’m happy to be back in the soap-making saddle! Also, we did this while, three thousand miles away, my 20th high school reunion was going on. So we listened to a ’90s mix on Spotify. Obviously. 235/365 #yearofmaking #soapmaking #chemistry #diy

On the first of two travel days, a quick mending of a raccoon tail this morning (appropriate after seeing Guardians of the Galaxy last night!). 232/365 #yearofmaking #mending #sewing
Seeing Guardians of the Galaxy tonight with Greg and my dad meant I have up the last chance I had to make something. So this is my quick and dirty journal entry from bed, where I intend to pass out any moment now. 231/365 #yearofmaking #guardiansofthegalaxy #iamgroot

Interview (& Reading) on The Interruption

Interview (& Reading) on The Interruption

Discover Canadian Books, Authors, Book Lists and More on 49thShelf.comeA couple of weeks ago, I had a chat with Sean Cranbury, who seems to be involved with almost everything related to books in Vancouver. He has a podcast called Books on the Radio, and has been collaborating with the Canadian book blog 49th Shelf to create a podcast called The Interruption.
