Sun102713Hi! It has been forever since I have posted anything on here, and boy things have changed for us! Since my last post, DW and I have moved to the Pacific Northwest, changed a ton of things in our lives, and adopted a bouncing baby boy. Just after the adoption, I finished my Master’s Degree, got a new job in Seattle and was put into the Bishopric in our ward(I don’t know what they were thinking either). We also have had some crazy changes in our business, new products launched and great plans for the future.

I’ll not go into all of the details for everything, but stay tuned for updates and news!

For now, though, here are some photos of DS:


Yes, I am still alive!

I haven’t posted anything on here in what seems like forever. The best laid plans and all that…. In any event, a quick update on my status:

Adoption: We are just about done with getting our adoption paperwork in order–which means that potential birth parents will soon be looking at our profile and, hopefully, decide to place their baby with us. If anyone reading this would like to help us by giving out pass-along cards, please drop me a line and I will make sure that you get some as soon as we have them printed. I don’t know how much I will actually talk about the adoption process here, as we will have a dedicated adoption blog that will be housed at –which should be up and running later this week.

LifeForce Project: Things have been both crazy and slow for this. We are just about to get everything ready to start our Kickstarter for the project and hopefully that will help us to get some funds for artwork and whatnot. I’ll post a link to that as soon as the Kickstarter goes live. In other news for the game, we have made some massive changes to the gameplay and I think that it has come out much better for them. I’ll do a more detailed post on that later.

Hobbies: As some of you know, I have been on a quest to learn how to make nearly everything from scratch. Cheese and other foods have always been at the top of my list, but recently I have started making hand-crafted cosmetics and spa products. ┬áRecent things made include Aftershave–in two flavors, with a third planned, Deodorant, Cold Cream and I just made up some hair “gel” that is actually made from a clay. I am learning a ton of stuff about Essential Oils and their applications in just about everything. I’ll do a much more detailed post on some of this stuff at a later date and post a link to my Etsy shop when that happens as well.

Fiction Addictions: We went to LDS Storymakers this past weekend and had a great time, we met many great authors and hope to do some business with several of them. Updates on that as it happens.

Project 366: Still going strong with this. Today is day 128 and the whole collection with comments and descriptions can be found here: A Year in Photos. Or you can just check out this slide show:

All in all, things have been hopping. This month we will see a trip to Oklahoma and next month we will be in L.A. for a bit. I do hope to do better about posting here and really doing something with this blog. Thanks for reading and I promise that it won’t be another Five months before I post again.


Another year come and gone…

Well, we have nearly survived another year. I have a goal of keeping up with this blog better during the coming year better than I have this past year–so keep an eye on here. read more


I’m not dead yet…

Wow. So many plans to do something with this site and here I am months later with nothing to show for it. Not that this has been entirely due to sloth, however. We have had a rather exciting time with illness, jobs and our business. Anyhow, I’m not sure whether to say that things have begun to settle or that I have finally reached the point where I don’t feel like I can put this off any longer.

That being said, I plan on getting more content up here. I have a few projects–both at work and personally–that will make it on here. I can’t say too much yet, but should be able to soon. So with that, I bid you adieu, and shall continue packing for our move next week.

Hello and Welcome to! This is (or at least will be again) the portfolio site and blog of Ryan Day. I’m in the process of getting everything situated in this format, so please be patient, as it will take a few days to get everything set up.

In the meantime, Feel free to check out my photography at my Flickr Page. You can also find me on Facebook and Twitter.

Thanks again for the patience!
