About This Site

Hello! I’m Annie, and welcome to my blog! I am a web programmer by day, and a wife, mom, and geek all the time.

This site is about all sorts of different things, mostly crafts… whatever I happen to be doing. I love getting to be creative, when there’s time and I’m not being a lazy bum.

There’s a good amount of “oops” involved in this blog. I am a walking Pinterest Fail sometimes. It’s a combination of needing more practice, impatience, and, well, my ability to mess up. (It’s my super power!) Hopefully you can still pick up some neat ideas, and learn from my mistakes at the same time. 🙂

Kablooie? Kablooie is a nod to one of my favorite comic strips (see image), plus it is pretty illustrative of my less-than-perfect outcomes from what seemed like good ideas.

This started as my username when playing Quake 3, as I have a bad habit of blowing myself up in video games. 😇

I play a lot of video games, and I am still terrible at them. Sigh.

How often do you post on here? Not that often, honestly. There’s a lot of things that fill my time, and the blog isn’t as high a priority as, like, feeding my kids. But maybe as they get older I will have more craft/blog time. (And I will still feed my kids.)

Your photos are just camera-phone photos! Yep. These aren’t professional photos, and I’m OK with that. 😊

Nerd Alert! Because besides my love of creating things, I have a love of all things geeky. Yes, I do *squee* a little when someone mentions things like Halo, Zelda, MST3K, Star Trek, Dune, Battlestar Galactica, Star Wars, Doctor Who…. and I often excitedly talk about fonts.

Enjoy, and drop me a line!
