Interwoven designs are found in many cultures and religions - such as Viking art, the Irish Book of Kells, the walls of Alhambra palace in Spain, or the endless knot symbol in Buddhism. To some people, knots represent the cycles of life, death and rebirth, or the endless changing of the seasons. 
In June, we celebrated my youngest daughter's 10th birthday and attended ConCarolinas, where we sat behind George R.R. Martin during opening ceremonies (not that he knew we were sitting behind him, we're not pals or anything, we just breathed the same air). I also worked as social media assistant for ConTemporal. You can see some of the photos in my gallery. In July, we celebrated my oldest daughter's 14th birthday.

While we took the summer off from homeschooling, I made a lot of jewelry. Nothing terribly exciting, just used up some of the odds and ends cluttering my studio. I started a new character in Skyrim, a Breton conjurer named Fleurine Greenhart, though I still played a little of my level 84 Imperial Nightingale rogue Zephyr Silvertongue and my level 58 Nord assassin Silvara.

No, I haven't finished writing the third Stellarnet book, and for all three people who've read the series, I apologize. I've found that, while I enjoy creating and writing stories, I really don't like being "an author." So, no deadlines for me. Let that be a lesson, kids, don't try to turn something you love into work. But I am still writing. In fact, I've been pretty excited about a fantasy novella I'm working on, featuring a dwarf as the love interest.

I'll be going to the Geek Gala in October. I'm also planning to sell jewelry at a small local event called Celtic Christmas in December and at Illogicon in January.

I saw your description and you reminded me a little bit of my daughter (yes, I'm OLD, I have a teenage daughter). :) She calls herself a "crazy old cat lady in training" and she likes video games and Tom Hiddleston. She likes to draw, mostly comics and illustrations, and she does "old lady crafts" (as she calls them) like cross-stitch and latch-hook. lol
