It’s starting to get warmer and soon I’ll be spending more of my time in the dungeon to keep cool. I’ve been working on a great many projects since last fall and promised to post pictures, but I keep getting distracted by more projects. I’m hoping one of these days I’ll learn better time management. Yeah, that’s going to happen!

I’ve made a lot of jewelry recently. Some pieces are listed for sale at Countrysidewalk and I will be posting most of the pieces I’ve made on CMH and here as well. I still have plenty to finish, but I’ve missed my blogs, so I’m trying to slow down a bit and post more. The backlog of things I need to post is getting unmanageable. I have a ton of crocheting projects to post and many pictures and recipes to post on the Community Cookbook. I haven’t finished any writing projects recently, but I plan on getting back to those as well. I’m also still trying to find a theme that will work for Macabre Manor so I can start working on it again. All help with Macabre Manor has fallen through, so I’m determined to get it running solo again.

Kryson’s Kreations (changed from Kryson’s Macabre) will still be the main feed for everything save the recipes on the Community Cookbook, so check back here for changes very soon!

Cuttings from a flowering Camellia Japonica bush
I was cutting the bush back as it was intruding on the walkway and when I looked down at the pile I’d made on the concrete, this is what I saw.  I just had to take a picture.  The flowers are pretty, but the bush loves to spread all over the place.  I loathe cutting it while it’s blooming, but sometimes it has to be done or become a trip hazard.
Products made from a picture of a single flower from the bush are also offered here on CafePress.
For more products with this image, check out the Cuttings page on CafePress.
This image is also featured on a few products at Zazzle with more to come, so make sure to check back.

Apparently, I decided I didn’t have enough to do, so I needed a few more websites. I recently re-launched Crescent Moon Haberdashery as a blog to showcase my CafePress store. I’ve been selling products with photography, artwork, and graphic work on CafePress for years and will soon be trying my hand at Zazzle as well. Crescent Moon Haberdashery is also featuring some beautiful jewelry from Aether Designs.

My mother and I have looked for a way to share recipes and finally decided, after searching for and not finding a solution we liked, that we might as well share them with everyone. Thus, I launched Community Cookbook a few weeks ago. It’s still a work in progress, but hopefully I’ll get the bugs ironed out. I went for an actual community setting and it isn’t working quite the way I would like it to. The name might change, but Community Cookbook works for now. We have a couple of recipes up with many more to come in the future.

After I feel like I have Crescent Moon Haberdashery and Community Cookbook well underway and help Jane with The Diary of Jane, I’m going to re-launch Macabre Manor. Macabre Manor has needed a lot of work for a long time and I hate to go the blog route with it, but I don’t think I’ll ever get anything done with it if I don’t turn it into a blog. Hand editing pages is so 1990’s, right? I’m still unsure I can make it do what I want, but I’m going to try. I can never make Macabre Manor what it once was, but I can do something with it… when I figure out exactly what that is, I’ll let you know.

In the meantime, this site will become my master feed as it were and my writing blog. I’ll be cross-posting things here from the other sites for the time being, except for the cooking site that is. I might make a post with recipes that have posted for the week, but I’m not going to post all the recipes both places. If cross-posting everything stops making sense or becomes too much, I’ll stop, but for now almost everything I do will still be on this blog. Why? For people who want everything but don’t want to visit tons of sites to get it.

As for the podcast, I gave up on it a long time ago. I wanted to podcast, but the more I tried the more I figured out that I didn’t really have anything to talk about. Maybe some day.

Southeastern Kansas sunset.  The picture was taken on a farm in Wellington, KS where the brick and mortar Countrysidewalk Trading Post resides.

With the orange tones and dark foreground, Sunset on the Farm #1 makes for wonderful fall decor.
