Woot… it’s been 2 months since my last post! I have been neglecting Dramatic Soul a lot 🙁 Well, I had many many things to write about but by the time I sat down to right about it I felt like the moment had past long back and it was too late to write about […]

I have always wanted to receive a subscription box and so when the lovely team at Fred’s Box contacted me to offer me the chance to review one, I snapped up the chance! I had hoped to use this as a good excuse to begin my foray into the world of videos via an unboxing video, but sadly my body has decided not to comply with that request. I was good though! I sat on the closed box for a while before having to admit defeat and open it. I may still do a video after the fact, for now I hope you enjoy myRead More → The post Fred’s Box Minifigures Subscription Box Review appeared first on Just Geeking By.

Yep, sadly got sick. 😷 Rest of the family has been and it was apparently my turn! Was hoping it would skip me! It didn’t hit me quite as bad as some, but still very unpleasant! I’ve had a runny nose, been sneezing, dizziness, sore throat, headiness, and throwing up. Though right now its mostly […]

Setting aside a project for over three years can bring perspective. After all my tough talk about the Pony Express quilt yesterday, I'm admitting defeat. As I've mentioned many times on this blog, I first saw this quilt made up in a magazine, and I fell in love with it. Then I bought the pattern. It turned out to be made from some newfangled technique that required a specialty ruler. And as soon as you read those words "specialty ruler," you know this quilt is nothing but bad news. And even with the ruler, I couldn't figure it out. So I've been doing my own thing and adapting the pattern. I was two blocks into it when I put it on the back burner.Fast forward to yesterday, and I'm ready to have another go at it. The third block in the series is called "Ft. Laramie." It's actually just a Pineapple Star. "Just," she says. I found lots of instructions for the block online, but none that were the right size, and frankly, I'm getting too old for math. Heck, my husband is retiring at the end of the week, if that gives you any clue how old I am. So I probably spent an hour and a half trying to figure this out. Then, I started looking through the pattern book at the many remaining blocks and discouraged myself into quitting. Yes, I've decided life is too short. I mean...just look at those Pony Express riders. All dead. I rest my case.Just git along there, Mr. Pony Express Rider. Let's just watch while he rides off into the sunset. Since I didn't buy any fabric when I started, I'm only out the cost of the book and the square-in-a-square ruler. If anyone wants it, chime in. It's yours. I've gnashed my teeth long enough on this project, and it is so outta here. (Dusts off hands.)Moving along...Next, I turned my attention to the other quilt I've had on the back burner, The Birds Return. When I took out the pattern, I remembered this mess:And I wrote a long WTF post about this right here, which is too painful to go into here. It was bad enough living it nearly 3 1/2 years ago. Now...I'm 3 1/2 years older, and I've gained wisdom in my quest to finish the Quiltmaker's Garden Nemesis. So I took one look at that and tried to make sense of what I'd already done and, being in a quitting mood, I decided to bag that project too. The Birds Return...please return from whence you came, and we'll all live long and happy lives. I'm too old for math, and I'm too old to carry around excess bird baggage.So there you go...two finishes, as in, I'm finished with these...and I didn't sew a single stitch. That's one way to get rid of your UFO's.Now I'm moving onto something I actually want to do. Cats will be involved.Pin It

As a blogger and designer, I like to give a helping hand to others when I can. I thought it would be fun to create digital freebies which may be useful. The question is, what free resources do you want? If you’re a blogger who seeks out free resources to use, what do you look… The post What free resources do you want? appeared first on Kya.

It’s been a while. I wanted to provide a little update because I know I’ve been quiet recently on the blog and on social media. This break wasn’t exactly planned, but it has been much needed. Spending 8+ hours on my computer every day at work made me very conscious of the time I was […]

Today I thought I’d talk about a topic I rarely ever talk about on my blog; fitness. The last time I wrote a post about fitness was 2014 when I had this wonderful plan to start working out, but then everything kind of fell through when my hip pain became unbearable and even walking around […]

I got addicted to opiates at the young age of sixteen. I have dealt with chronic back pain for even longer. The week before I started 11th grade, I ended up in the hospital because of the terrible pain I was in.
