From "Bad" Girl to Oscar Hopeful

When I watched Dawson's Creek, I really thought it was gonna be Pacey who'd be the star to shake off the WB thang. I remember thinking Michelle Williams was a terrible actress, but maybe it really was the character in this case: Jen Lindley's emotions ranged from pouting at Dawson to scowling at Grandma. Sad to see Michelle typecast as the cute blonde beard, though.

Zipperneck: Fresh from BEADCON '06

This weekend, my sister-in-law and I went to a Bead Expo. There was a lot of stuff there I can't normally get, and she helped me pick out a bunch of stuff I normally wouldn't have gravitated to. The scene was bizarre - a strange demographic mix of people, from the entire families crowded around tables to the Angry Russians who wouldn't sell us any amber. Expecting a strong representation from the Jean Teasdale crowd we placed a small wager on the number of Rascal Scooters we'd see there, but both guessed higher than the 3 we actually saw.

I bought so much it was a bit overwhelming, but it's been a busy few days nevertheless:







And as always, more pretty things are on display at The Zipperneck Gallery, including the pieces commissioned for frockazulu's Mrs. for Valentines Day.
