Two Muses

The last day of September is here and I have piles of papers, clay, and glitter all over my desk.  My two muses have been busy at the beginning of the school year.  I don’t miss having certain kinds of homework anymore but sometimes I feel like I’m still in the classroom.  There’s always somethingContinue reading “Two Muses”

Baby Steps

Hump day is the perfect time to provide resources for those who are lost and don’t know what to write about next.  Today, there are several resources out there and fellow authors but the danger is consuming the information and not getting anything done.  After meeting many people who say they want to write aContinue reading “Baby Steps”

One At a Time!

I don’t know about you but I was dragging at the beginning of the week and my mind didn’t want to focus on getting work done. All of the excitement over the weekend drained me and my attempt to catch up on my rest in one day wasn’t enough. I went for a walk inContinue reading “One At a Time!”

My Miniature World

All the creating for this past weekend’s outdoor event has increased my appetite for all things Halloween.  My miniature world turned to holiday set building.  Thank you to all those who stopped by my table.  What they didn’t see was a very late night packing up pieces, and a pile of those I couldn’t bringContinue reading “My Miniature World”

Outdoor Event – September 18th

Friday is here and I’m running around getting everything ready for tomorrow’s show. Last coats of glaze will go on and packing and repacking will happen because my brain wants to add more to the already packed boxes for tomorrow. My Thanksgiving dinner will be on display along with some fantastical creatures. I might evenContinue reading “Outdoor Event – September 18th”

Foodie Friday

The end of the week arrived in the blink of an eye after Labor Day, and I find myself more worn out than a regular week. Taking those few extra moments to relax over the weekend and get in some cat naps meant cramming everything into a few less days. I wrote about fall changes,Continue reading “Foodie Friday”

Spaghetti, Meatballs, and Rainbows

Hump Day started the same as every day. A drive in the morning to drop off my husband at work. I always pass a row of trees near the road that hand over the end to shade the street like tall green umbrellas. For a few seconds, I felt like I was driving down aContinue reading “Spaghetti, Meatballs, and Rainbows”

Life Up North

The great fight of the North started at the beginning of the month. The cold of the night clings longer to the mornings and our temperatures have dipped. Those who live in California or down South already have on their Fall coats but not in Minnesota. We wear our shorts and run around in shortContinue reading “Life Up North”

Fall Is In Session!

The school year has officially started and summer ended after Labor Day. We are two months away from NaNoWriMO and my mind is on Preptober. The question is, am I going to do Preptober and Inktober? I bought my ink pad over the weekend to give it a try. I thought I would follow theContinue reading “Fall Is In Session!”

Happy Labor Day!

Happy Labor Day! The last day of the Minnesota State Fair is here but I had my fill of fried food on a stick. My long weekend was filled with running errands and accidents with a hot glue gun. After watching other artists create miniature models out of Amazon boxes, I was inspired to createContinue reading “Happy Labor Day!”

Welcome September!

Welcome September!  This weekend means an extra day to get ready for my next show.  I have to check my book inventory this week to see if I need to order more.  My pen will be in hand with some new art pieces.  Yes, my face will light up like other creators when you stopContinue reading “Welcome September!”
