Recently, I started playing RimWorld again! RimWorld is a great little game where you act as an “overseer”, controlling a few pawns who are trying to survive on an alien world out on the rim. Along the way you try to recruit more pawns into your colony, and the ultimate goal is usually to either…

Hello fellow yarnists! It’s been a while since I posted a shop update, so here we go! First, some reminders: EU Sales Are Ending On July 1 As of July 1, 2021, there will be new VAT rules in the European Union. My shop is too small to accommodate the changes, so as of July…

2020 was the longest year in history yet also seems to have gone very quickly. Not sure how that works exactly—must be some screwed up space-time finagling… But now 2021 is upon us! I hope it will see things really turn around for everyone. All we can do until then is continue to take things…

It’s been an amazing first few hours too, with lots of support from family, friends, and followers, and even my first few orders (omg!!). All the feels!! ♥ It took a…

Yes! Finally! Creative musing and spontaneous brainstorming continue for this project, largely thanks to some excellent input from members of my Discord community. At long last, it seems I’ve finally found a new title for the book. It shall now be called… All Our Sins Ooh yes! I’m pretty excited about this title, as it…

About ten years ago, thanks to EVE Online, Mat and I met and became friends. Our first face-to-face meeting took place a short while later in Iceland at EVE Online’s Fanfest celebration. Since then, we’ve grown to be the best of friends—and in the last several years, even closer than that. So today, it’s with…
