Well I made it up to Raleigh for an open stage! For the first time in a year! I am clearly 100% dedicated to my craft you guys. But I checked out Deep South the Bar and they’re pretty cool up there so I think I’ll go back. Continue reading
Suncatchers in the Sun
Ok, so deciding to write every week was a failed experiment. That’s why this blog is for fun and not for profit. 🙂 Continue reading
More Christmas Presents
Here are the coaster sets I didn’t get a chance to share last week! Irish symbols for my aunt and a music tree for my grandmother:
For last week’s Buddha coasters, I just cropped some existing photos, but with the sets pictured here I took time to edit the images before printing. So I’m quite proud of how they turned out. Continue reading
In a shocking twist that surprises no one, it turns out the beginning of December is a terrible time to add responsibilities to my life. The day after I swore I would post on here once a week, I realized I was incredibly behind on Christmas planning. So I did what any normal, healthy person would do:
calmly assessed what I needed to finish and paced myself panicked, stressed the heck out, worked obsessively on presents every spare minute and late into the night until I made myself sick. Whelp.
My New Years’ Resolution is to not do that to myself again. But I probably will because stressing way too much over small things is kinda how I roll. 😉
On the bright side, the presents turned out AWESOME!!! And now that Christmas is over and everyone has their gifts, I can share some pictures with you fine people. ^_^ Continue reading
I know, I just posted yesterday, and now I’m posting again! What is this madness?!
Lately I’ve been thinking about how I really suck at marketing myself. Not even marketing in the financial sense so much as just saying, “Hey, I made a thing, and I’m going to share the thing with people who might be interested!”
Yeah, I’m kind of bad at that.
No, your eyes don’t deceive you — I changed the theme! And the color scheme!
Daydreams and Chocolate has been around for a while, so I figured it was about time to move my blog design beyond the year 2012. Since I’m one of those people who are perpetually 5 years behind the trends, that means my new blog theme is ushering in the coolest blog fashions of 2013.
The future is now!
A Fair Trade Halloween
It’s Halloween time, which means it’s time for a boost to an old post about Fair Trade Halloween chocolates!

A Proud Member of AO3 Since Last Week
I joined an Archive of Our Own!
Daydreamsandchocolate.net – “Its dot com!”
Hopefully someone out there appreciates the Homestar Runner reference in the title. If you don’t, you should visit the USS Homestar Runner. It’s been 10 years and that video still cracks me up. Anyway…
Today I learned an important life lesson about renewing your domain name on time! Apparently if you let it lapse, you could possibly lose it forever. :O Or you could do what I did and pay 4 times what you would have otherwise paid and wordpress will recover it for you. So my wallet is crying, but I’m happy to report that I’ll have daydreamsandchocolate.com back in my name by the end of the week.
Which is good, because daydreamsandchocolate.net just doesn’t have the same ring to it.
Going the Distance
Last week I finally traveled to the distant Northern lands of Cary, NC for some open stages. (Cary, in case you were wondering, is about a 90 minute drive from Fayetteville. This makes it Really, Really Far Away if you’re like me and hate driving anywhere after work.) Continue reading
