When family is in town, what better way to spend time together than working on a Hexagon Shelf Project for our little baby girl. When I was young I used to help my father with some projects around the house. Sometimes it was installing flooring, or building a shed, or painting. Sometimes it was really boring work that I didn’t want to do because I was a brat (you know, like every kid). But I’ve always had fond memories of working late, ordering pizza, and finishing a project late into the night … Maybe that’s why I work that way […]
I’ve been working on a design for a child’s growth chart. This may not be the final design I go with, but let me share what I have so far. I’ve recently been experimenting with sketching directly from my phone. Before you guys judge me, let me tell you my reasons behind this. It’s just so convenient always having every type of brush and color. Oh, and the Copic colours! And layers, OMG I just love using layers. Ok, now that I’ve got that out of my system, let’s get down to the real stuff. Let me tell you about […]
It’s almost Christmas, and you know what that means! Christmas decorations are here! I usually like to make my own custom decorations, and this year is no different … We’ll sortof. This year, my wife and I decided that we would not put up the christmas tree. It’s sad I know, but because we now have a 4 week old (YAY!), It’s a really big hassle to put up the christmas decorations. We basically have the sofa bed out like 70% of the time. So the only thing that will be christmas-y this year will be our fireplace mantle adorned […]
I’ve always been an early adopter when it comes to new technology. Back in about Sept 2012 I decided to get involved in this new thing they called Bitcoin. For me it was all about trying to understand the technology, so I did some rresearch. I found a nice website that you could calculate the estimated earnings from a Bitcoin mining machine. This allowed me to compare different machines and make an educated decision on what to buy. I ended up spending $60 on this little beauty. Or at least that’s what the company said it would look like. The […]
Here you can see my lovely daughter Marina. She is totally ready for projects! I love her so much! My Little Minion. I’m posting this as a “hidden JEM post” in the hopes to see this one day in the future when I’ll have completely forgotten about it. Stay awesome my Little Marina! Love DAD
So I’ve finally pulled the trigger on updating my site from the lazy WordPress.Com to the self managed WordPress.Org … you can search online for the details of the differences, but the major changes for me are these: More freedom (I can change anything I want. Basically I have a free reign … Which is necessary when you’re OCD like me) Infinite plugins! … oh man I love these awesome plugins Better RSS (e-mail post notification management)
I’ve managed to complete my Link from Legend of Zelda Cosplay a few weeks ago. Right on time for the Vancouver Fan Expo 2017. Turns out that I couldn’t make it to Fan Expo … You see, I had to spend the entire weekend in the hospital! And let me tell you … It was AWESOME! I am now the proud father of a Baby girl. Please do read my wife’s blog if you are interested in the details. I have broken up this cosplay update into 3 parts below. First I will start with Link’s Tunic, Then the Hylian […]
This is the first time I wore tights … I swear.
So twice per year, I embark on a personal tire changing challenge. I started changing my own tires a few years ago. I’ve slowly been optimizing my process, and as of last summer I’ve been tracking the time between changes.
Our little baby girl will be born in a few weeks, so we decided to repaint her room. The original owners thought the this green was a nice color … I actually didn’t mind it … Until I saw the alternative. Now that I think of it, damn that green was ugly …
