I've just (finally) signed up for a DeviantArt account.  Hopefully I'll update regularly!

Sorry for the radio silence on here -- like I've mentioned before, it's tough to update this site through my phone, so there are more steps involved when I want to post.  I've recently opened up a Facebook page for The Magician's Assistant, which I update quite regularly.  Please stop by and check it out!

Shop Amazon!

Shop Amazon! I buy a lot of supplies through Amazon, like jewelry clasps and other findings.  It's a one-stop shop for what I need and the prices tend to be quite competitive.

Since blogger is weird about letting me post from my phone, I haven't been updating nearly as often as I'd like.  I have, however, been updating my Ravelry profile with all sorts of things I've been knitting and crocheting lately -- go here and see what I've been working on!

Almost here...

Wickedfaire is less than two weeks away!  I've been furiously crafting to make sure I'm ready...given how busy we are at work, I doubt I'll be as ready as I'd like to be!  Lots of jewelry, but some new goodies too, as you can see below....
Hopefully I won't be bringing ANYTHING home!  (If I do, it will of course be offered in my Etsy shop.)
I'm also going to be offering custom-made corsets when I'm there...I love doing corsets, so I hope Fairegoers get as excited as I am!  I'll be offering both over- and under-bust styles, in a variety of colors and prints...with the option of completely custom designs!  

Below is some of my past work -- something even more amazing could be yours!

We were given tickets (Phil's birthday gift) to a Next Iron Chef event being held in conjunction with Food Network's NY Food and Wine Festival in October. All of Iron Chefs and contestants had booths with a sample of their work...with only a few very notable exceptions, it was, as you would expect, amazing!  I had the camera (and a lot of the pictures I had to doctor -- the lighting was awful), so lots of photos of Phil and the chefs -- his deal, so I'm ok with it!  (We know he's the more photogenic of the two of us, anyway.)
Phil with Iron Chef Forgione
Us with Alton Brown!
Phil with...Elizabeth Falkner?  I think?
Chef Appleman at work
Phil with the original, Iron Chef Morimoto! 
Phil with Giada -- we spotted her in the crowd and I made him bother her.
Phil with Chef Guaranchelli -- Spoiler alert, she won.
Phil with his choice for winner, Chef Mehta.  Not pictured: my choice, Chef Mehndelsohn.
Morimoto at work
Phil with Iron Chef Zakarian (who was handing out pink bandaids from a tub large enough to drown in)
We pose with their promo
The back room where the Iron Chefs were set up -- you can barely see how packed the room was.
