Hi. I’m Amy. I started this blog in 2005 as a place to deposit my journal and photos. It has gone through a few incarnations and occasionally masquerades as a family site, but since I’m the only one who contributes to it, it’s really all about ME, ME, ME.

I love photography, crafting, web design and whatever else tickles my fancy at any given moment.  I’m good at many things but lack the drive to be the best at anything. That is partially due to the rate at which my interests change, which also (I’m told) makes gift-buying for me very difficult.

I’m happily married to a man I adore because he makes me laugh and keeps me thinking. And he puts up with the dozen annual projects I start but never finish. And for that, I put up with the fact that he’s constantly leaving half-empty soda cans in my car.

I’m adjusting to life in the Frozen Frontier and preparing myself for the long, dark, cold winter months. I’ve fallen in love with our fireplace and heated floors. And my kids can seriously rock the “hats and scarves” look.

    In your January 12, 2010 photos from the Smithsonian, there is a photo of a strange dog night light. I was wondering if there is anything you can tell me about it? The caption on the photo is somewhat cryptic. Thanks!

      Unfortunately, I don’t actually know anything about that night light. It just looked scary to me with the red glowing eyes, and not at all like something that would help a child sleep.
