Art Walk Central 2017!

Art Walk Central 2017 opens today! My piece is on display at Veterans Memorial Library in downtown Mount Pleasant – you can check it out in the main corridor outside the study rooms.

Her Home Apothecary quilt

It’s called Her Home Apothecary and is an art quilt (my favorite medium) combining traditional quilt piecing techniques with applique and freehand embroidery. The theme, broadly and as usual, is feminism. I’m trying to get better at the promotion side of things, I have a scheduled consultation with Yeah Local, who will try and get my internet game into the future and not the other way around. So here’s my request to you to check it out and, if you like it, vote for it! Register to vote online (requires in-person activation at ArtReach or the CMU Art Gallery) or in person at a variety of local venues. My code is AWC42. I’ll be at the Art Battle and Artist Meet and Greet tonight, August 3rd, so say hi if you see me! And thanks to the library for hosting my piece!


Review: What Color is your Parachute?

What Color is Your Parachute 2017

What Color Is Your Parachute? 2017: A Practical Manual for Job-Hunters and Career-Changers By Richard N. Bolles

Readers will find what they expect in this updated version of the long-popular career book. It has been updated and includes information on now-standard practices such as managing web results featuring your name. It has the usual Christian bent which is especially apparent in sections such as Finding Your Mission in Life, but the bulk of the book remains focused primarily on how to figure out what you want your career to be.
