I have big news!!
Calamity Designs (me) will be vending at this year’s The Atrocity Exhibition!! The theme this year is Phantasmagoria, so get ready for re-invented Victorian amazingness, handspun, mourning shawls, and all kinds of epic knitting. Maybe even some crochet.
Super excited, not only am I vending, but the event is hosted and organized by some absolutely STUNNING talent and performers, so it’s sure to be a spooky event not to be missed! May 19th, doors at 9, Tickets are $10 in advance, $13 at the door, 21+.

It seems silly to have such a fine blog and yet forget to post on it!
Anyway, 2012. 2 months and 7 days into 2012, so it can hardly be called a New Year’s post. Life has been, well, interesting to say the least. In 2011 I got a lot accomplished and went through a lot, and 2012 has continued to pull no punches (although the punches have required traveling, so I have gotten to see a lot and meet some amazing new people along the way).
No news on the health front, just continuing to go through stuff. So I leave you with this little bit of information:
Cannons were first used in Western warfare in the Siege of Constantinople in 1453. Also, the Crimean War was the first war to be photographed.
