Here’s another design I have on Redbubble from an image taken at a Portland Zombie Walk. Great for Halloween. I’m not sure how I feel about this layout accident with the Samsung Galaxy phone cases. I should probably change it but the placement of the camera over the face is also wonderful.
I’ve started putting some of my photographs onto a service called Redbubble. Now you can buy the silly face of my friend’s cat Pickles on everything. I think she looks great on a cell phone case. And then there’s this delightful whoopsie.

The recipe calls for frozen spinach, but otherwise doesn’t seem too bad. I remember when I was a very young child that getting fresh vegetables out of… Continue Reading Ham n’ Spinach Puff Pancake
My first mother, Irene, my biological mother, died in 1991 a month before I turned seven. The last time I went back to my childhood home, my sister and I sorted through photographs and finally threw away her disintegrating old purse. I brought her recipe box back with me to Portland and will be digitizing… Continue Reading My Dead Mom’s Recipe Box
I wrote about the advantages of Facebook advertising for BlogPaws. Facebook can target ads to people with bachelor’s degrees who are veterinary technicians who own homes, are interested in soccer, and are parents with children in elementary school. That’s how narrow Facebook advertising can get.
I have asthma, so the smoke billowing from the nearby Eagle Creek Fire (and others!) is very serious for me. I’m not leaving the house unless I really need to. Except that time yesterday when a neighbor said they had 6 pounds of free plums and I was on them like a colony of sugar… Continue Reading How I’m Surviving the Fires: A Product Guide
