I have such a huge respect for spiders. Even when I was reeeeally scared of them for years I respected them, and would save them from screaming grown men and women who wanted to stamp on them.
They are incredible survivors. They discover, plan, wait, adapt, persevere and survive! And they have magical shiny stuff that comes out of their butts. That's a lot more than I can say about most human beings.

Wow!!!! Startling, honest, true... I WANT to be more courageous.
Well this post is really about something else entirely but an extraordinarily handsome pigeon stole all my attention on the way home from my bus adventure today and simply MUST be mentioned. Wow - for years now Tuxedo Pigeon of Brighton was the most magnificent pigeon Id ever seen, but today I met the father of all magnificent pigeons - King Pigeon of Penn Avenue, Pittsburgh. He walked around with a velvety robe, but the most amazing part was his neck. It was puffy and the widest I'd ever seen from which I imagine he emits a deep burbling mating call that only a King of Pigeons could make and it was smothered lavishly in the most dazzling peacock colours in a waterfall of perfect rainbow feathers. Wow! I stopped walking and just stood there admiring him, then noticed his elegant Lady Pigeon. A fine choice she was, but as I walked past he stood his ground, checked out my boots, while she flurried off hastily. King Pigeon was not about to make way for me. No. I hope to see his fine feathers again some day soon. (more...)
I'm really excited about this project! Carnivále creator Daniel Knauf launches a Kickstarter project for new, non-linear narrative paranormal drama - BlackBxx: Haunted. A completely interactive concept that's been in his mind for 2 years. Become a part of a ground-breaking project that could change the way we experience TV in the future. The first of its kind.
Today you're 10! 120 months old, 3652 days old, 315535082 seconds and counting old. I cant even imagine how much you've grown since the last time I held you. It's been 2 whole years already, and it feels as long as every day that has passed. But I never stop thinking of you and loving on ya! I'll always love you and be so proud of you my special little boy.
Keep those eyeballs of yours shining!
Love Love Love you with all my heart!!!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY Tristan xxxxx
I've been slacking on the updates lately. Just been sort of unwordy lately. I totally forgot to show you the new Halloween Theme I launched for Sock Dreams the other day. Was loads of fun to work on and kept me busy for ages! I've also created a gorgeous Halloween Theme e-gift card (launching tomorrow), but you'll have to send one to someone special (like yourself) if you want to see it ;)
Next I'm working on a Winter Solstice theme. Mmmmmm!
