I've been super busy with many things. School, friends, and prepping for the Steampunk World's Fair. School is going well. One more exam this coming Tuesday and I'm finished!

A few weeks ago I attended [ profile] bauhausfrau's going away 18th c tea party. There seemed to be more champagne than tea, but it was an unforgettable weekend.

Here's my set of photos (with several taken from the flickr accounts of other attendees!)

Bauhausfrau also got a short video of the moment I invented "jampagne". See, we'd run out of pink champagne, and someone had brought delicious home made strawberry jam. I looked at my glass of champagne and looked at the jam and an idea was born! And yes, it was delicious! Someone else did come up with the name "jampagne", though. Who was it that named the new cocktail?

Since then I've been writing papers, studying, and doing a little sewing.

Here is the fabric layout for the bustle walking dress I'm making for the steampunk world's fair

So if you're going and you see a dress in this combination of fabrics, it's me!

Speaking of which, I have to get back to working on it. It's almost done!

Heh, so you were the brains behind jampagne, eh? Nice invention!

I love your fabrics for your outfit. It will look awesome, I'm sure.

Heh, yeah, that was me :) Thanks!

I can't wait to finish and wear this. Photos after the event, which is soon!

I used to do that back when I was a teenager (not with Champagne), but with the free water at the local hangout where all the goths/punks congregated. I figured they had the fruit flavoured syrups on the table, free water... and decided to combine them together to make something more interesting ~ and still free!

Great minds :)
