Welcome to The Phoenix Files!

This blog is a collection of papers and how-to articles I have written, as well as my travel journals and general announcements. Scholarly works from "The Library" on my old website, are labeled here as "Historica Tractatu." 

My travels have had heavy influence on my work and are the 'back story' behind many of my designs. Some of my older journals are revised from the original, and most link to photo albums on Facebook.  

August 9 could be your lucky day...

August 9 could be your lucky day...

I've decided to include a couple of drawings for my Phoenix Rising Celebration:

  • For a chance to win a custom made hat valued at $130, subscribe to my Mailing List any time between now and August 7, 2014. (The subscription box is located in the lower right corner of my home page.)

    Limit one entry/email address per person.

  • For a chance to win 50% off any hat in stock (or a custom made hat of equal value to the same style currently in stock), write a product review on any hat in The Hat Rack between now and August 7, 2014.  You may write as many reviews as you wish, but only your first review will be entered to win (one chance to win per reviewer).
  • Drawings will take place Saturday night August 9. You will not need to be present to win.
I've got some other ideas, but I'd like to hear from you. After all, this party is as much about you as it is about me.  Without you, I wouldn't have a reason to celebrate : )

So, help me plan this year's Spectacular Spectacular!  Please post your comment here:
