Late Night Post

The clouds moved in over the weekend as we drove to another flea market to take a look at future options. Our umbrellas joined the pop-ups as we walked through the aisles of forgotten memories. I found a rickety old work cart that had potential to be turned into a food stand for my miniaturesContinue reading “Late Night Post”

July Is Here!

The first of the month is here and we’re moving into a long holiday weekend. Happy 4th of July early! The roads of Minnesota will be lined with those heading to cabins and weekend getaways hoping to soak in the sun. Whether or not our weather will cooperate up here is always a gamble. I’llContinue reading “July Is Here!”

Manifesting Dreams

This week I’ve turned into the midnight writer again because my fingers just didn’t want to go earlier in the day but I’m still hear. I feel like a Cinderella writer but the difference is that when the clock strikes midnight, I turn into the fairytale writer. Maybe I need to manifest a large increaseContinue reading “Manifesting Dreams”

Vending Machine Day

Last night, I needed to unwind after a long day of cleaning up my mess after my event and rescuing some free furniture that was calling my name. A little reorganizing and I made them a temporary home until I can figure out what I want to do with them. To my surprise my husbandContinue reading “Vending Machine Day”

Summer Blues

I made through the past few years with a few minor illnesses and avoided the big one despite having to go in for testing 4 and now my 5th time. This is the one time I’m crossing my fingers to be negative about something. Regardless, I’m under the weather and my post is a littleContinue reading “Summer Blues”

Mother Nature In Minnesota

I’m at my writing post again like clockwork and my eyeballs feel like they’ve been under a hairdryer for 8 hours. This weekend my biggest challenge was Minnesota weather and participating in an open flea market that had no wind barriers around a large open field. I set up my tent in the early morningContinue reading “Mother Nature In Minnesota”

Event Crazy

The day before an event is here and I will be running around in circles trying to pack, make last minute pieces, and repack 10 times before I forget something have to do it all over again. My rules is to have as much crammed into my tubs as possible so that I have toContinue reading “Event Crazy”

T-Rex Hands

My tables and desks are piles of polymer clay, resin molds, and jewelry making tools. I think my hands are going to look like a curled T-Rex by the end of the summer. I guess I won’t have to go rock climbing to get the dexterity and grip of an athlete. No, my summer isContinue reading “T-Rex Hands”

Creative Challenges

The clock is ticking and I’m working through logistical problems and cranking out more hand pieces of miniatures for our first flea market experience. Anyone looking to get out of the house near Stillwater, Minnesota are welcome to come visit us from 9 to 3 pm this Saturday and Sunday. Hopefully, I won’t forget myContinue reading “Creative Challenges”

Late Nights

It’s normal to stay up until 3:00 in the morning to get ready for an event, right? My never ending show circuit is only beginning. My husband and I had our first spring event together in May. Everything wasn’t perfect but it was busy and that’s a good thing. It also happened to be onContinue reading “Late Nights”


Today I’m still taking time to celebrate Juneteenth and freedom from slavery. Being from Minnesota and recent news headlines in the past few years, we need to pause to remember why this country was founded. Everyone deserves their freedom and the right to pursue happiness. Having grown up in the suburbs of Minneapolis, and lookingContinue reading “Juneteenth”

Date Night

Did you have a steamy night at the keyboard last night during your writing prompt? I hope you did. If not, there’s time to set those pages on fire this weekend. Still not inspired? Then, take yourself or a significant other on a date. That’s what I’ll being doing. My husband and I are celebratingContinue reading “Date Night”
