Logo Design part 2: Canva Brainstorming

After I was able to get back on the internet, I went to Canva & came up with some other ideas for logos:

canva Logos

and some others:

canva Logos2

So those are some other options.

Now I’m gonna go work on some for myself—which will be Part 3….


My Hillary Twist

Well, I got the job: Organizer, for my local community: Kalamazoo, MI (& Kzoo, Allegan, & Van Buren counties-@ least these are my new boss Josh A’s responsibility) so will not be working on FCC nor NaNoWriMo/DigiWriMo in 2016, but can’t wait to get back to these after HILLARY WINS!

Blue Moon Update

Well, biDiana-of-Versailles,- Artemis-2 4tuesday wmkg plans were…   …   ….big plans.

Still have goal of FCC Front-End DevLifelong-learning in mind, but not by Summer Solstice.

Will have new plan up this week, but progress has been subverted for last couple months, not much accomplished, but new focus isn’t just FCC.day1Wmk


Still, I have gone in some other directions – applied for a job with the candidate of my choice (guess…I’ve also spent a lot of time on dailyKos.com, and had a week or so on deviantArt again, making…’art’. Nope: ART! Ownin’ it. Anyway, webbing, not often…enough, here, on this blog….


‘Web Often’: lately been more of a wish than a #Wyrd **PLUS** #learntocode ~update

Wyrd. (as in sacred word)

(and yet, few words, here, as of late. Haven’t been Web Often-ing a lot (at least here on wordPress)), but did end 3+ years of girl-cotting fb. Also tweets have happened…

May start wyrd (press?) Goddess/heathen/pagan blog, maybe year of daily Goddess devotions? (though that ‘twould be easier on tumblr, as my phone can usually access that even if in non-Web hinterlands….); might start that on Autumn Eqx/Hallows, or maybe month long of devotions, like soon, like starting now:  #Hail Freya! -who loves the gold bling…Anyway, #wyrd.Goddess Seals of ancient Crete from Max Dashu: Suppressed Histories online gallery. Goddess with poppies seated under fruiting tree and surrounded by votaries offering crocuses. Two serpents float past the sun and moon in the sky, beside a Goddess Seals of ancient Crete, from Max Dashu’s Suppressed Histories online gallery:

Goddess with poppies seated under fruiting tree and surrounded by votaries offering crocuses. Two serpents float past the sun and moon in the sky, beside a “Shield Goddess.” A double axe takes center position, and benearth it is a small female figure with a crocus who appears to be standing on the mountain symbol, like a goddess in other seal art.   Speaking of which, I’m thinking I may create another, more focused, sacred blog, stay tuned?

Lifelong-learningMeanwhile, back on the web, #learntocode -ing:  have been doing some @codedemy, in support of my @freecodecamp training, and also doing a few projects on my own. Plus had 40th, FINAL #michfest -ivities, so offline (therefore, web NOT often (nor actually @ all) was only possibility).

Anyway, back again.  Image  revisit… midway during green sheep year:

How to Stop Being Lazy and Get More Done: 5 Expert Tips

How to Stop Being Lazy and Get More Done: 5 Expert Tips


Some days the to-do list seems bottomless. Just looking at it is exhausting.

We all want to know how to stop being lazy and get more done. I certainly want the answer.

So I decided to call a friend who manages to do this — and more.

Cal Newport impresses the heck out of me. Why? Well, I’m glad you asked. He’s insanely productive:

  1. He has a full-time job as a professor at Georgetown University, teaching classes and meeting with students.
  2. He writes 6 (or more) peer-reviewed academic journal papers per year.
  3. He’s the author of 4 books including the wonderful “So Good They Can’t Ignore You.” And he’s at work on a fifth.
  4. He’s married with a young child and handles all the responsibilities that come with being a husband and dad.
  5. He blogs regularly about productivity and expert performance.

And yet he finishes work at 5:30PM…

Kamene Baba Figure

Eric Edwards Collected Works

Image (2)

PRM.1890.30.1: Kamene Baba figure beside the Collection Box.

This statue is a most intriguing artefact and the archetype of the Baba Yaga Cult. Towering over the more benevolent mortals in the Collection Box as you enter the Court from the right hand side, is the stone figure of Kamene Baba: Although easily upstaged by her more animated neighbours, she does have an intriguing tale to tell.

The statue is a rough hewn sandstone female figure holding a cup in her hands called Kamene Baba weighing 10 cwt 10 lbs and 21000 mm high.

10 ways to win at professional time etiquette

Loved this look @ lessons learned in NYC of hustle; Follow Up and Follow Thru is probably my weakest point, so making that my new motto!

Kate Kendall

time I think of the last year and a half I’ve spent in New York as professional finishing school. If there’s anywhere on this planet where people are stupendously busy, it’s this place. It definitely took me a few months to settle into the rhythm. Combine this experience with recently fundraising, and I now feel incredible mindful of everyone’s time. So, without ado, I wanted to share 10 tips on how to win at professional time etiquette:

1) For the love of humankind, be direct with asks

Growing up in England and Australia, I was taught to be the opposite of direct. Skirt around issues, don’t address things head on, be tirelessly polite and pad lots of superfluous info around a lone ask. What I’ve now learnt is that one of the kindest things you can do for someone’s time, is to be as direct as possible. Don’t ask someone for coffee if you…
