On Voting & Elves


I'm wearing a sticker with a peach on it, proclaiming "I'm a Georgia Voter!" We were able to vote early in my state (Yay Georgia!), & I've never seen such numbers of people out to vote! Maybe it's because I grew up as a military kid, maybe it's because I've travelled quite a bit, but hitting the button to cast my ballot always makes me stand up a little taller & appreciate my country a little more. Whatever your opinion is, get out & express it! Go vote & wear your sticker proudly!

OK, on to the Herald. Ky has sent me her piece, which means I've got this joyful little fellow sitting on my desk with no innards. That would be my part. Which is how I ended up in the local hardware store, contemplating if hex nuts or stop nuts have more intrinsic beauty to them. There are a lot of fun things in hardware stores! No clue what other people do with them, but I've got everything I need to build the Herald's mechanical innards.
Here are my sketches for the three little elves that will be tuning up the mechanics on the inside of the Herald. Each elf will be one inch tall. I've got work to do!
