We’ve Got New Sites!

Things have been quiet on this site for a while, and a lot of that is because Stephen and I now have individual sites for our work!

You can see my art at misty.granades.com.

Stephen’s science stuff now lives at stephen.granades.com.

Week 30 of Making Something Every Day

Day 200: Go Travel Nepal ATC. Also! Day 200, guys!!!

My colorist, Renée, colored the background on this one using my cool watercolor crayons. Then instead of the cartoon car that was on the card originally, I covered it up with yet another Nepal stamp. I have to go back to Nepal just to get […]

Even If You Don’t Blink, The Weeping Angels Will Still Get You

“Listen,” the man on the TV says, “your life could depend on this: don’t blink. Don’t even blink!” He gestures, thumb and middle finger in a circle. “Blink and you’re dead. They’re fast — faster than you can believe. Don’t turn your back, don’t look away, and don’t blink.”

The Doctor is warning Sally Sparrow about […]

I can’t believe I’ve made it 10 weeks! I have to say, I’m a little bit proud of that.

Day 64: Visited with friends from out of town at our favorite Mexican restaurant. No time at the art table.

Busy day ending with dinner with some friends. I took a photo of these flags because they reminded […]

Day 58: Started a set of rainbow inchies. Yes, that’s a technical artist term.

Day 59: […]

We stepped outside this morning to take this photo and there was a cool breeze blowing. Nice change of pace to the hot weather we’ve been subjected to most of the summer. The summer is over and I’m glad to see it go. I’d like very much now to settle into […]

Remembering Japan

Japan 2008 Part 1 225.JPG a photo by misty.granade on Flickr.

I have spent all day grieving for Japan. We visited three years ago and I fell in love with the beauty of the place and the graciousness of the people. If it is possible to be homesick for a place that you’ve never lived, then […]

Second as Farce

The furor over Wikileaks has become Theatre of the Absurd. Consider:

Senator Joe Lieberman says that he can’t understand why the DoJ hasn’t charged Assange with treason, a charge which applies only to US citizens. Assange is Australian.
New York Times editor Bill Keller, speaking with the BBC, admits that they clear what Wikileaks cables to release […]

A break from crocheting hats

I’m still making hats even though I made my 50 hat goal. But I took a break this weekend to make a couple of sweaters for my mom’s dog, Lola.

She was unimpressed with her fittings up until she had to go outside one morning and it was below 50°. My dog sister was slightly more […]
