26 October 2009

It was a rainy cold day here in Austin today...

I'm trying to remember to occasionally post pictures on here. I finally got a backup drive so I no longer have a packed to the gills computer-- which means I can take more pictures without deleting stuff! Yay!

Friday, August 14, 2009


So obviously I failed.

One big reason was the filling up of my laptop hard drive. Another reason was, oddly, the success of my Etsy store. I only have so many hours in a day, and with the baby I really only have time for one daily project at a time.

Some day I am planning on getting a fresh big enough hard drive. When I do that, I'll be back!
I do post things on Flickr fairly often, so if you want to see more of my nonsense I'm Bakiomau on Flickr.

For now, here's a my women photographers group we did a firework photography workshop. I have a lot to learn still!

8 April 2009-- My first barter project, work on my house in exchange for canoe painting. Unfortunately he used oil paint and was unwilling to spend much money on paints so he bought a cheap kit of artists oil paints for me to use. I like how it turned out but ti get it as nice as I would have liked it would have taken another week taking into account drying time.

31 March 2009-- It's a snake! A thread snake or blind snake according to my online searching. It was on my kitchen floor and one of my cats was enthralled, trying to figure out what to do with it. Tiny little thing looked like an earthworm, but somehow not quite right.

Day 176

30 March 2009-- Flowering tree in my back yard. Neat flowers. I don't know what it is.. do you?

Day 175

Day 151

5 March 2009- Have I mentioned that we are remodeling? We ripped out this drywall in less than an hour. So much fun!

Day 150

4 March 2009 Cauliflower from my garden. It looks cool but... smelled weird and lots of bugs seemed to like it. I don't think I'm going to grow it again.

Wednesday, March 4, 2009

Day 149

3 March 2009- The lady at the flooring store meant well when she gave Lorelei her own business card to play with, but really it wasn't the best idea.

Day 148

2 March 2009- My boyfriend baked a cake for me after I complained that mine kept not coming out right. His might not have been a prizewinner looks-wise, but it sure was tasty.

Day 147

1 March 2009- Actually taken on March 1st! Yay!

The weirdest face I think I've caught her making on film. Also, a prime example of why not to have white tile floors. It is so hard to keep them looking clean! I wipe them down by hand at least once a week, and sweep more than that, but I do go out in the yard a lot and my boyfriend works in the garage a lot and we come in from both those tasks through the kitchen.

Day 146

28 February 2009- Actually March 1st. Middle of this day I fixed the date on my camera. Horray!

My jungle beast kitty, Baku

Day 145

27 February 2009 (actually on the 28th)- Reflections--- downtown austin

Day 144

26 February 2009 (actually taken on the 27th)- We had a service person in to clean air ducts. It was strangely exhausted because it was too noisy and there was too much going on for her to take a normal nap. The is what happened when I took her for a short walk around the block.

Day 143

25 Feb 2009

I've been drawing a LOT. This is for sale in my Etsy store. I'd also welcome doing custom ones. Or big drawings... whatever, as long as it is within my abilities to do. I love drawing for a reason vs. just doodling around. If you emailed me and said you saw me mention it here I'd give you a big discount. Just sayin' ;)

I just realized the other day that my camera is recording stuff as being 1 day earlier than it is.... like pictures taken on Friday the camera says were taken on Thursday. I don't know how to fix this without posting two images from the same day or something
