Holy Blog Hiatus, Batman!

Welp, here we are again. It's that time where I apologize for neglecting Sparlke, Sparkle and you think to yourself "It's OK, Abby, I don't even really care that much." But just in case there are a few people who have been mourning the lack of sparkle in their lives, to you people, I am sorry. I don't know what the deal is, I just haven't been feeling particularly inspired lately. Or when I am, it's at really inconvenient times like when I'm driving or at my apartment (which lacks the necessary internet access to make this blog possible.)

At any rate, here are a couple life updates... just to keep you all informed that I am indeed alive and basically well.

*I still live in Nebraska. So, that's happening.
*Work is going well for the most part, we're in the process of making some stained glass windows so it's nice to have a project on the docket. That means I get to fill out more forms! Joy! But seriously, it's good to have work. These working-off-commission type businesses are sort of risky endeavors, and it's good that we have some income flowing. (Oh hey, shameless plug for my job... check out pretty art we make at
*I'm gearing for reapplying to grad school, which is simultaneously overwhelming and terrifying. The best combination! If I get into one school, I will be happy. Just. One. Please?
*I've been taking a Art Since 1945 class at UNL and it is fantastic. I have to say I really love learning about art, and I don't care if that makes me a nerd or whatever. Even crazy movements like the Viennese Actionists (look them up, if you dare) are fascinating, even if not so much aesthetically pleasing. Fun stuff.
*More printmaking is happening in my life! Not as frequently as I'd like, because I've been more busy with this other class, but I'm getting some interesting results. Drypoint etching this week, yay!
*And I still miss my friends. So here you go, friends: an open invitation to the great state of Nebraska! Anytime you're here, drop by Seward and I will show you the sights and sounds. It will be the best 45 minutes of your life, I promise.

Ok, have a sparkly day, everyone. I will attempt to come back soon with more life revelations for you to enjoy!


  1. man. I really stink at co-blogging. I'm really sorry. You can vote me off the "island" if you want.
