About Me

I’ve finally succumbed to The Blog.

I’m a graduate student; born and raised in good ol’ Utah, but currently living in the South of England where I am earning a Masters diploma in (brace yourself–it’s a long title) Conservation and Restoration of Books and Library Materials. In a nutshell, I fix rare books. It’s only a yearlong program, and time is flying! Come September I don’t know where I’ll be! Guess I should be looking for a job!

This blog is mostly a way for friends and family to check in and see what I’m up to.

It’s also a place to dump my silly internet finds. I’m such a collector.

    I stumbled onto your blog researching tracy hall. I’m a seventh grader that decided to do my history project on him. I have been trying to gather information about him as an individual. If you have any information I would greatly appreciate it or know of anyone I could talk to. He seems like such a cool guy.
    thanks,
    Harrison

    I was just researching “birth order” and personality and thought I’d check for “seventh of nine” and found you. I’m the seventh child of nine, too. (I’m in grad school too — for an MFA degree in creative writing, nonfiction, by the way.)

    Glad to find someone bringing up the later third of a big clan.

    Harrison–
    I’m so sorry I haven’t replied sooner. I think it’s cool that you’re researching my grandpa, and I would love to put you in contact with my dad or one of my aunts or uncles. It’s probably too late to help you, but I’ll send you an email anyway.

    Charles–
    Very cool! Thanks for commenting. I’m always excited to meet another seventh-of-nine. You sound like a pretty cool person ;) Good luck with your MFA!

    Hi,
    I am writing to you in reference to the what appears to be infamous “Grand Teton Wildflower, Wyoming” photo or whatever it is.
    I was absolutly taken by this print, and I really don’t care if its real or not.
    I would love to get a print of this to place over my fireplace (approx 24 x 32)

    The only thing I can find on it is folks talking about it beng fake. I am not concerned about
    that. My mother in-law was just out in Wyoming and I sent her on a search for it, to no avail.
    It also appear that it is no longer on Webshots. ????

    Do you have any idea where I could get this ?

    Thanks for your help.

    Hi Lily,

    I found your blog as I was looking for book binding classes in Utah. I was wondering if you know a place that teaches them. Im looking for just a basic class, any ideas? thank you!
