Formosa Moon Year Anniversary!

It’s hard to believe that it’s been a year since Josh and I’s book Formosa Moon was published. Ever the faster blogger, Josh has already written up an anniversary post here. In honor of Formosa Moon’s 1-year anniversary, we’re asking friends and readers in and out of Taiwan – to a little support behind the book, its authors, our publisher […]

Formosa Moon Book Release Party

Josh and I’s book Formosa Moon was officially released October 1st, 2018. We had a great book release party at Taipei’s Red Room. (We actually had our party last October. I’ve just been too busy with grad school to blog.) Our friend Carrie came out and we were delighted to see her. She has been incredibly supportive of this project […]

Formosa Moon Promotion

Now that our book Formosa Moon has been released, Josh and I are starting to do more promotion. Our latest was for a tv show and we got the full treatment. You can buy our book here. Despite my side eye to the mascara, the experience was fun. The hair and make up person curled my hair and I swear […]

Solstice Hat

Alas, Floyd didn’t get a new outfit but I’ll be sprucing him and Hazel up for our book release party next month. (Pre-order Formosa Moon here!) My best friend Kelly and I designed the pattern back when […]

Sick in Singapore

Our Australia vacation was quite the adventure. And like any true adventure it had its highs and its lows. Since I’m a bad news first, good news second kind of gal I’ll cover the low part first. During the end of our time in Australia we both caught the flu from a friend. I fought it for several days but […]

Tiny Stitches, Tiny Shrimp

My internship at the Taiyuan Asian Puppet Theatre Museum just passed the three month mark so Kim gave me this lovely pin cushion, which I’ll need for my current work. Rosie and I are making customized puppet costume pillows. The pillows give the costumes a dimension which really brings them alive. And they help to open up creases without damaging […]

Knitting, baking but most of all puppets!

Great progress on the knucks last night. I used Jeny’s Surprisingly Stretchy Bind-Off so the cuffs easily stretch over my hands. Every time I do this BO I forget how so Cat Bordhi’s tutorial was quite helpful. When I first became gluten intolerant I was getting sick almost every time I ate. My naturopath doctor said my body was in crisis […]
