Bad Princess garden cocooning

As you can probably tell by my radio silence, I’m deep into my creative cocoon with Bad Princess. I’ve a June deadline, and a ton of loose threads to weave together. (Research, writing, design, and drawing, oh my!)

I’m pleased with how the book is coming together, but I’m at the stage where the only way out is through. In the meantime, I leave you these beauties from the Blue House garden.

I’ve been watching them emerge from the winter soil over the past few weeks.

Just as I will once this book is off to my publisher.

Proof that spring is coming, even if it doesn’t feel that way right now. 

Metapost: And we are back ~ hopefully

The first daffodils of the season on sale. Spring can’t be far away, right?

After much Sturm und Drang, this site is at last back online. “What happened?” you might be wondering. Short answer: I have no idea. Long answer: My web host deleted the database powering this site. No database = no site for over 24 hours.

(Why’d you do that? I asked my web host after more than an hour on hold. Dunno, they answered before restoring an old version of my site back to cyberlife. Um, hooray and ugh.)

Anyway, I’ve used this very frustrating experience of being served an outdated site as an experience to do more than just update KrisWaldherr.com. Instead, I KonMaried the heck out of it. Obsolete pages have been banished to limbo; navigation has been streamlined.

(Why? you might ask. It’s all part of preparation for New Things to Come, which I hope to announce soon. :-) )

In the meantime, keep your fingers crossed that my web host doesn’t revert this site again. Or worse, delete it.

The mighty falls

Tree at the end of my block after a recent snow storm. When I left my house an hour earlier, it was upright. An hour later … not so much.
