Out of Sorts

While I had been doing pretty well with posting regularly this year, I didn’t post a thing last week and I’m not in the right frame of mind for it today either.  I am not great with routine. I am much more of a free spirit and tend to allow myself to go wherever the […]

Awaken to Joy

It has been a difficult week for me.  I’ve noticed the blues starting to creep in on me and one of my kids is going through a really upsetting time as well.  I’m doing my best not to let depression overcome me, in the way it often does at this time of the year.  I […]

Snow Can Be a Real Heavy!

It has been a couple of months since our dog Roxy died.  It has been harder to say goodbye than any of us thought it would be.  However, it has been hardest on our 12 year old son, Kai.  He seemed to be doing ok, but last night I entered his room after he had […]

Pain in the ….BACK!

Gone Within

It is inevitable.  No matter how hard I try to be consistent with my outward expression there always comes a time for me where I find myself turning inward.  I am aware of the world around me and if engaged I will respond but for the most part I am quiet and withdrawn.  I am […]


After ten years of designing I simply do not have the physical capacity to stick to it putting out new product week after week.  I end up with an arm that won’t work properly as well as shoulder and neck problems.  So even if my spirit is willing, I always have to remember to respect […]

One Day at a Time

I am kind of foggy headed and bogged down the past few days. Feeling a definitely shift of mood. Last week I was obsessively working on a paper and paint creative project and at for most of my waking hours for days. I have not felt like doing another piece since then, probably because I […]
