August 18th 1992

There’s obviously a bit of imagination used for this poem, but this is based on the actual events on this date with Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love.

August 18th ‘92

They told me what happened,
I was barely alive; hardly there.

She found me, curled under the sheets
wishing the world away.

“Fuck you,” she screamed
and dragged me through the clinic,

the squeaking wheels of our IVs
trailing from our arms.

Her stomach was bursting with our baby –
mine empty, sunken, and detoxed.

I could feel her fingernails
clawing through my palm

as her agony filled the room.
I only heard the shallow clicking of my breath.

While she pushed and panted
she reached across the bed to rub my stomach

while I vomited air
and passed out when she gave birth.

So this was the beginning
of my junkie fatherhood.

Of course, I escaped; got high
and came back with a gun.

How to age paper quickly + Spellbinders distressing tool review & ink review
March 18, 2016
Every now and then my workroom floor gets completely covered with crafting paraphernalia while I make some books. By that I mean either plain journals where I just decorate the cover, or complete wedding guestbooks where every page is decorated with places for the guests to sign their name or leave a message. Well this has been the case for the last couple of weeks. At the moment I’m making a large steampunk themed guestbook, which, when finished, will be an example for others that can be made to order with the couple’s names and wedding colours etc. So, I thought I’d tell you how I age my paper to give that lovely distressed vintage look….
How to hide talking to yourself
4 problems people who talk to themselves have to face and how to solve them
November 29, 2018
People think you’re mad. Or at the very least, a bit weird. Although it’s kind of nice that your husband also works from home, or is just around a lot; it’s really annoying that you can’t talk loudly to yourself; because even though it’s only him, that would still be a bit embarrassing. If you just think a thought, it’s not quite real enough, so you have no choice than to say it out loud. That can actually be somewhat bothersome. Particularly in public…..
