Halima, oh gosh where could I ever start? Known her since about 1998, maybe even 1997. One of the big heartedest, craftiest, free spiritedest, people to come down the 'pike. She'll always have a good story to tell and good food to feed you. And if you ask nicely I bet she'd belly dance for you too!

Halima is a lot of fun and I've known her for a couple years now. She is a good dancer, and loves to dance with others. She is absolutely fiber obsessed and makes the most amazingly little felt thingies. I can't even begin to imagine how those are created. She and beledigirl dance very well together, and are very insync when they dance. They also sew some great costumes, something I really stink at.

I have known Halima for about 5 years; she is a good friend and my SCA 'sister.' Halima is a woman of many talents--you name an art or craft and she has probably tried it and done so successfully! Not only that, but she is willing to teach what she's learned to others. Halima likes a good party and is my dance partner in crime.

Becoming Halima

I grew up a farm kid from a very crafty family. My mother's mother was a creative seamstress who had sewn for years in a baby clothes factory and in her early retirement had made a small mint of money on the craft show circuit selling cabbage patch kid clothes during the big cabbage patch kid fad. My father's mother crocheted fine doilies with tiny thread and crochet hooks. She qu... read more

I'm watching two angora rabbits for one of the folks in the barony while she is on a trip for a month. They are so cute and fuzzy! Like a cotton ball with a head and leggs. Those of you that live in my area should come and see them.

I finished reading this book while at Lilies War. It is a seriously good book even for those who don't have Mongol personas, or even those who aren't SCA geeks like me. The book won't tell you a damn thing about how to make your Mongol garb, but it will give you a completely rounded picture of the Mongolian mind, and what everyone else who came contact with them must have been thinking. This book starts out in the childhood of Genghis Khan, a poor orphaned outcast who somehow concoured mos... read more

Well, its May and you know what that means, the warm weather has infected my brain and all I can think about is camping and dancing outdoors. As always but really right now I'm making felt like crazy. I'm getting ready for Baron Wars and Lilies War out in Missouri. Here is one of my latest pieces. The design comes off of a bronze age celtic sword scabbard. Its not functional its just "art".

I've been sick all day and felt like it was a good day to just sit in front of the computer and update my website. Check it out and let me know if something doesn't work or if it doesn't make sense or is spelled wrong or what have you. Oh and sign my guest book!

In January I'm going to be starting felt making classes.  My school is kind enough to let me rent the space at a very cheap rate (cause they love me).  But now I have to find cheap and effective ways of promoting my class.  Any ideas?  Any of you that live near Ann Arbor, please spread the word and if you see an inviting bulletin board around town, please let me know about it!  thanks

here's the info about my class from my website

After you die...

Reincarnated as Yourself

After death, you will be reborn again as yourself. You will live the same life, unbeknownst to you. However, you will have vivid moments of déjà vu, as you probably have now.

When you teach in a partnership its inevitable that it becomes like a Mom and a Dad, or two aunts or whatever.  It gives the perfect oppourtunity for kids (and sometimes parents) to play good cop, bad cop.  And every teacher, just like every parent secretly wants to be the cool teacher.  Last year I'm sure it was my co-teacher, she was sticky sweet, always had matching beaded jewlery that coordinated perfectly with her outfits, she liked pads of paper with apples and school houses on them, and she had lots of special puppets etc.  Well she is off to grad school and I've got a new co-teacher (bless both thier hearts) and this year I'm sure I'm going to be the cool teacher cause I have this:

a combination apple peeler, corer, slicer.  We call it Mrs. Rankin's Apple Machine.  Today we put a whole bunch of apple through "The Machine" and made applesauce.  It made the whole building smell like apple and I gave the kids shakers of cinnamon to put on thier apple sauce.  MMmmmm

And in a couple of days I will get this in the mail

Its a molcajete and tejolote (spanish for mortar and pestle), made of lava rock.  We are going to make salsa in it and grind corn. Yep, playing with food, we will get to smash tomatoes like nobody's business, and I will be the coolest teacher ever!
