(or, let’s all try out posting on the new blog!)

Listening: same old same old. I need something new. I also need a new stylus so I can listen to records again.

Reading: anything I can get my hands on, usually for free thanks to BookMooch. Kids fantasy and school books, design stuff, Badge Button Pin, Nylon magazine, approximately 4000 blogs.

Watching: LOST S4, Cloverfield, The Wire

Working on: badges and brooches, secret surprise gifts, diskant 10 year anniversary bash (this Summer!), zines (no, really), Oddments, Shopify.

Anticipating: February 29th – my last day of full time work! If you haven’t heard, I quit my job and will be doing the crafting and freelancing thing instead. Wish me luck! And if you need a nice unique handmade gift or a website designing then get in touch.

Self-promoting: my shop! Also my exhibition at The Park Gallery in Falkirk which finishes up end of February.

Marceline is the fierce, terrifying force behind diskant.net, laughing with disdain as she fires sharpened blades of sarcasm in all directions. Based in Scotland, her lexicon consists of words such as 'jings', 'aboot' and 'aye': our trained voice analysts are yet to decipher some of the relentless stream of genius uttered on a twenty-four hour basis. Marceline's hobbies include working too much and going out in bad weather.
