jauncourt: (historical costume)
Hello to any new folks who have come by to see what I have to offer! You will find that this is a strange mix of a personal journal and a blog. A great deal of my early thoughts on costuming and craft stuff does percolate through here, but a lot of what I say here is friends only or private. All of my costuming info is public, and will be duplicated, eventually on my public blog. Please feel free to friend me, read for a bit, comment if you like, and if we seem to be doing well as a acquaintances, I might friend you back.

If you are looking for my costuming handouts, they are freely available for download at Scribd, and I have a lot of additional content elsewhere. Please see the links list for where you can find my public web content.

Social networking: I'd be honored if you'd follow me on blogger, Scribd or twitter. I'm going to be adding more handouts and updating old ones, as well as bringing all my old sites' various content over to the blog and updating it, so that would be the best way to find out what's new.

Regarding Facebook: While I am on facebook, I try to keep that personal, for keeping up with IRL friends and family. If you do find me on facebook, I may not accept your request unless I have a good idea of who you are. My twitter is much more public, so I'll be posting costume and other public stuff there.

It was written by the man who wasn't actually my grandfather, and finished before he passed away. His wife, the lady who isn't actually my Grandmother, but might as well be, has gotten it published, and I was asked to build a website to help promote it.


The book is called Heaven's Pavement, and it's about WWII. It's a pretty powerful story. I'm still reading it, because I get so little time to read with the chaos of life anymore, and because some bits of it are intense enough to make me need to pause for a moment. Also, I think there is an element of not wanting to let the story be over.

The website I worked on is here: http://heavenspavement.com/index.htm It's been live for almost 2 weeks.

It's pretty much done, but this is why I abandoned my blog and any serious posting anywhere since, oh, September. I was coding and pushing pixels back and forth and trying my best to make it worthwhile. Being asked to do such a thing for someone you love is both an honor and a labor, because the worst critic is often yourself.

Some genuine compliments on the site were communicated to me today. I think I've done okay. I hope so.

ETA: GAH. Cut and paste fail, discovered days later via casual mouseover. I feel like an idiot combined with an asshole now. Awesome. Fixed now, as if anyone will know.

I've decided to roll much of my LJ over to my blogger blog. Everything will stay here, but I'm copying over all the public content, except for the really fluffy meme stuff, and some selected bits of the friends only stuff that I am comfortable with making public. All the personal stuff will stay over here as well. If you are only here for the baby stuff, the personal things, or the whining, this is where it will all be :)

It's just started, I have a couple months from 2003 done so far. It's going to be slow. VERY slow.

I have also rolled all my other blogs into my primary blog. There's no reason to keep them seperate now that tagging works so well. I eventually plan to bring all the content from my old personal website over there as well, and maybe making pages for certain stuff (Costuming! Parenting! Etc!) as well. I'll be duplicating some posts here and there, of course, but it's over here if you like subscribing to feeds:

I'll be putting my PDFs and other downloadable stuff on Scribd, I think, so I won't have to host it on a website, so my old personal site on 50megs will be going away.

It'll be so much easier to keep track of it all. Yay!
