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”

Resources For Writers

There’s only a few days left before Preptober begins and fingers will be flying all over the world as writers prepare to join NaNoWriMo.  What are your goals for the month of November?  If you haven’t participated in either, then this is your introduction.  There’s no right approach or way to join in the nextContinue reading “Resources For Writers”

Creepy Cooking

The sun started setting and like any normal person I was taking photos with my new phone of a Minion Frankenstein and Bride.  Minion mummies and tiny pumpkins were stars of the lighting set.  My mind started to race with fantastical creatures and fairy tales.  Getting into the mood I turned on a cook showContinue reading “Creepy Cooking”

Friday Yuck

The weekend is here and I started my day with taking a rest to get over the seasonal bug that’s causing congestion and what I call the Yuck. I guess this is my body’s way of greeting a new season and all I can do is rest. Extra sleep boosted my lack of energy forContinue reading “Friday Yuck”

Under the Weather

Ever have one of those days when you feel like curling into a ball all day?  Well, that was me yesterday.  I was under the weather and I’m still trying to get to 100% again.  Fall is definitely here and every time there’s a change in season my body protests.  I had plans to getContinue reading “Under the Weather”

Sky Whale Wednesday

Did your fingers get their workout yesterday?  I hope you got in some practice.  Last night, I was watching my stream of random YouTube videos when I had the realization that I’m not the only one with a vast imagination.  I was watching some spooky videos before next month, when they showed something bursting inContinue reading “Sky Whale Wednesday”

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”

If Walls Could Talk

During the past few months I’ve been volunteering at the Art Shoppe in Minneapolis to help while someone was out on vacation. Getting to know and speak with other artists and authors is one of the highlights. My payment is in helping the creatives in the shop get paid for their work. There’s something satisfyingContinue reading “If Walls Could Talk”

Marshmallow Wednesday

I see more hoodies passing by as I walk the streets of Minnesota in the middle of the day.  The run to my car in the morning might mean I have to put on my fall coat but the one thing that’s not my favorite during the colder months is all the heavy layers.  IContinue reading “Marshmallow Wednesday”
