a bug has infiltrated my bathroom
I’ve decided to name it Jim
Jim walks the not-so-red carpet
you’re a star, Jim
Jim edorses oral hygiene
Jim doesn’t even have a toothbrush
Jim is a hypocrite
Jim refuses to give me a high five
fuck you, Jim
Jim refused to pay rent
Jim has been kicked out
welcome to the real world, Jim

From the Great Library of the Clayr, a selection of passages from Lirael’s journey.
OKAY so, I had a High Medieval Art History class this term and instead of an essay we were allowed to authentically recreate an art form from our lectures, so I chose to illuminate a manuscript using passages and content from Garth Nix’s Old Kingdom series, include Nick/Orannis’s song, the Five Charters, the warning rhyme of the dead and water and the titles of the Nercomancer’s bells. I completed it yesterday, using ink, tempera, and a gold foiling pen.
The motifs are all in reference to the Burney 275, a manuscript from 1310 by a Parisian illuminator, but I incorporated Abhorsen, Clayr and Charter based symbols. See what you can spot! I am really proud of this thing, might take better photos of it when I get it back from being marked.

Oh Dios…EL MORBO…
It’s giveaway time! I’ve gotten quite a few followers since the last giveaway, and gained some more friends, and everyone is just pretty awesome all around, and let’s reward you guys for that? Sound good?
Check out the images above for what you’re trying to win (and my apologies for any spelling errors, I kind of wish Photoshop had spellcheck)!
And what’s listed isn’t even all of what you have a choice from! I know there’s many many things I’ve posted that haven’t been made in to a print or anything, which is why each prize tier is given a price limit. That way, if there’s something you’ve seen from me that you have wanted in some capacity, I can supply it to you within the limits of the prize cost! If you win, all you have to do is ask. :)
Rules and stuff!
- »> FOLLOW THIS LINK TO FIND THE GIVEAWAY WIDGET. TUMBLR IS NOT RELIABLE! PLEASE USE THIS WIDGET TO BE SURE YOUR ENTRY IS COUNTED!!! «<
- Must be following me to win!
- Please please PLEASE don’t change your Tumblr name! Or just be sure that I have SOME WAY to reach you with the Tumblr name you provide the widget (likewise, don’t delete those reblogs! if I follow the reblog link and there’s no reblog there, guess what? Doesn’t count).
- Reblog as much as you like, but only the reblogs you link through the widget are counted (and you can put in a new entry once a day on the widget)!
- Shipping is on me, and I’ll ship ANYWHERE.
- Giveaway ends on December 25th (right as December 24th ticks over), with a winner announced later that day.
When do you get your prize?
Very good question! If the items you want are in stock in my store, your prizes will be shipped out on December 27th. If you want backstock items or have requested an item I do not have something for YET, your order will MOST LIKELY ship in January.
Commissioned artwork will be delivered via email, one to three months after the end of the giveaway. Art will be done in Photoshop, at 11x17” 300 DPI. So you will have a nice big hi res image!
Did I miss something? Probably! Just drop me an ask or a fanmail or a carrier pigeon and I shall answer any burning questions/fill in gaps I may have missed!

How to talk to your daughter about her body, step one: don’t talk to your daughter about her body, except to teach her how it works.
Don’t say anything if she’s lost weight. Don’t say anything if she’s gained weight.
If you think your daughter’s body looks amazing, don’t say that. Here are some things you can say instead:
“You look so healthy!” is a great one.
Or how about, “you’re looking so strong.”
“I can see how happy you are – you’re glowing.”
Better yet, compliment her on something that has nothing to do with her body.
Don’t comment on other women’s bodies either. Nope. Not a single comment, not a nice one or a mean one.
Teach her about kindness towards others, but also kindness towards yourself.
Don’t you dare talk about how much you hate your body in front of your daughter, or talk about your new diet. In fact, don’t go on a diet in front of your daughter. Buy healthy food. Cook healthy meals. But don’t say “I’m not eating carbs right now.” Your daughter should never think that carbs are evil, because shame over what you eat only leads to shame about yourself.
Encourage your daughter to run because it makes her feel less stressed. Encourage your daughter to climb mountains because there is nowhere better to explore your spirituality than the peak of the universe. Encourage your daughter to surf, or rock climb, or mountain bike because it scares her and that’s a good thing sometimes.
Help your daughter love soccer or rowing or hockey because sports make her a better leader and a more confident woman. Explain that no matter how old you get, you’ll never stop needing good teamwork. Never make her play a sport she isn’t absolutely in love with.
Prove to your daughter that women don’t need men to move their furniture.
Teach your daughter how to cook kale.
Teach your daughter how to bake chocolate cake made with six sticks of butter.
Pass on your own mom’s recipe for Christmas morning coffee cake. Pass on your love of being outside.
Maybe you and your daughter both have thick thighs or wide ribcages. It’s easy to hate these non-size zero body parts. Don’t. Tell your daughter that with her legs she can run a marathon if she wants to, and her ribcage is nothing but a carrying case for strong lungs. She can scream and she can sing and she can lift up the world, if she wants.
Remind your daughter that the best thing she can do with her body is to use it to mobilize her beautiful soul.
