Nodds & Nends: Cosplay, Snow White, Knitting, and a Rant
Don’t forget about the Blog Tour hosted by Itching for Books that I’m a part of for the next couple of weeks. Ingrid Paulson’s novel, Valkyrie Rising, is an excellent YA read. Check out the Blog Tour for more reviews, interviews, and giveaways.
Check out this awesome Snow White paper cut out of her putting the dwarfs to bed? Or waking up? Something. Anyway. It is cool.
Here is another Snow White print. The only thing I can think is that I’m pretty sure I would not want this guy with his hand up my skirt. And by that I mean I absolutely wouldn’t.
The amazing detail on this Alice in Wonderland Cake is just so delightful. This is why I love the internets. Thank you internets.
Perhaps my favorite find is this picture of several cosplayers in wonderful costumes enacting a (made-up) scene from The Little Mermaid. Lisa Fabio made the costumes for both herself as Ursula and Ariel’s.
And I stumbled across an article asking knitters to create 5X5 squares and send them to two authors (in February, so you have some time) who will then put all these squares together for baby blankets. They have swag for the person who sends in the most squares and a giveaway for getting the word out. So, get the word out and Knit for Charity.
And now I’m going to rant for a moment. So you don’t need to stick around all the important things have been posted. OK? You’ve been warned.
Some time ago the structure of my postings changed and I’ve been slowly working my way through a back log of old posts to come under stricter guidelines regarding other people’s pictures. I’m not perfect at it, and I’m still learning, so I’ve given myself some room to be imperfect in this and to correct the mistakes I find. I’m mostly doing this because I want to avoid future legal repercussions. But then I realized how many times I have to answer comments about how someone is amazed I’ve made something, even though I’ve posted a link to the original posting, put information on the picture to state who did the photo or amazing thing, and yet people assume I’ve done it. It’s like they didn’t even read the posting! I’m so super careful that I give credit where credit is due, I site to my sources, etc, and it seems to not matter! Uninformed questions that would literally be answered by reading the post and clicking on the links are frustrating to deal with on many levels. And I know this is the price to pay for blogging, but seriously I expect better of you internets. I expect better.
