Appreciation Day!

The night before I was making beer miniatures and last night I was making miniature boba teas filled with hearts and fake fruits for Valentine’s Day. I’m two days away from showtime and my mind is swimming with the list of all things I would like to make but can’t in the amount of time left.

I’m hopeful that the results of my last TikTok going over a thousand views on one of my new creations is a good sign for Saturday. There’s nothing like the feeling of sharing and selling something you created with your own hands. I also love how creatives are supportive of each other.

When another artist or writer buys something of mine there’s a certain kind of acknowledgement and appreciation that you don’t get from other people. It’s that feeling that brings me to events of other people, where I get to return the feeling. Sometimes, I go to the table that doesn’t have anyone there and buy something I like to help give them a boost.

My collection of signed books by writers is growing. Having been at events where there were only crickets, I make an effort to show my support to the community by buying from fellow peers. When was the last time you appreciated someone? How about someone you don’t know?

This is your prompt for today. Write about someone going out and making someone’s day. It doesn’t have to be a holiday but the 14th is approaching if you need one. Write for 5-10 minutes, then try to put it into action.

Most posts are Monday through Friday!

Here’s a few things I’ve been working on for Saturday.

I’m at ThinkCutiesStudios on Etsy.

I’m an author in Minnesota who started out writing and illustrating Children’s books. I’ve published poetry and adult Romance Novels. I created my website and social media to reach out to other writers because the process can be lonely. I wanted to reach out to readers, writers, and those with a dream of finishing “that” novel. I share the advice of other writers and the tools I use to create my stories.
