The new dragons are here!

I still have some photography and listing-updating to do, but this batch of dragons is done. A couple of orders are going out to more Pern fans (hence the particular color selection of this batch). It’s always interesting to see what people choose as their particular vision of what the dragons look like. Bronze is […]

Revisiting the to-do list

A while back I posted about my unfinished projects and a to-do list, so I thought I should revisit it since it’s supposed to keep me accountable. It’s going… okay. There’s good and bad. The good: it’s been pretty good about the small routine stuff. I take my vitamins, zero my inboxes, keep my business […]

Even more dice

I’ve been acquiring dice faster than I can come up with dice trays that match them. Normally this wouldn’t merit a blog post, but I’m going to list one in the on-site shop and see what it looks like in the crossposts. I mean, I’m going to list eighteen, but I’m definitely not going to […]

Things you probably didn’t know

The USPS isn’t profitable chiefly because it (unique among federal entities) is required to fund retiree benefits fifty years in advance. Because of this, it relies on overtime instead of additional personnel – fewer eventual retirees. Cutting overtime accomplishes the same thing as cutting post offices but bypasses the requirement for public comment. Ditto shaking […]

Busting social media silos

I’m slowly getting my website set up to do everything I want (aside from stocking the web shop as well as the Etsy one…) which means putting together as many ways to connect to it as I can. Facebook, Twitter, the fediverse, email, and of course the best one, RSS/Atom. If you’re seeing this via […]

Take your vitamins

It has been just short of two months since I started using TaskWarrior, and I gotta admit… it’s going well? I’m not sure if it’s TaskWarrior or the vitamin D (you can skip to that if you’re not interested in to-do list stuff). Stephanie over the river at Exit 343 Designs (maker of the sticker […]

Plodding through listings

It turns out to be difficult to track out-of-stock colors in multi-option listings, so I’ve been gradually breaking out all those into single-color listings. It turns out that’s a lot of listings. I also don’t have a complete photo set for all colors of dragons, so that means photography – and I don’t necessarily have […]

To list fabric, or not?

I am still [mostly] obeying my boss the to-do list, so it is time to finally work on getting rid of the bulky faux furs. You may recall that last time I started this, I ended up making a giant plush Mew (which yes, is still unfinished – let me just put that on the […]

Housekeeping

We’ve run our own mail servers since… well, technically I have since the mid-80’s, if you count dial-up bulletin boards. But today I switched this site over to delivering mail through one of the many third-party services, since I can’t keep up with asking for exceptions to every single mass-blacklist. So if you (finally) got […]
