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”

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”

Friday Blues

Friday is supposed to be about going out after a week of work and celebrating with everyone who survived the grind but I’ve been silent this week about some not so great news. Earlier this week I received an email that got me really down. I learned that someone broke into our art shop inContinue reading “Friday Blues”

Reinventing Imagination

Working or volunteering in a local art shop every weekend has it’s benefits. I’ve been creating art pieces and writing since middle school. I even remember writing out my own stories with squiggly lines because I hadn’t learned the alphabet. As I grew into an adult, I would sit there and wonder where all thatContinue reading “Reinventing Imagination”

Writing Every Day

Just five minutes a day is all my mind is repeating this week because I didn’t follow the advice of other creators when it comes to store launches. A few people that I’ve followed said not to launch new items in your store after a big event, I should have listened because most of myContinue reading “Writing Every Day”

Spring Into Uptown

One day before the event and I’m running around again. Checking tote once, twice, and a third time. I tell myself I can create one more piece because I like staying up all night and having blood shot eyes from lack of sleep at events. No really, this is my normal. I’m tired but there.Continue reading “Spring Into Uptown”

Bedtime Thoughts

Last night, I sat ready to blog when a sound to my right on sofa made my head turn. Quiet laughter followed as I stared at my husband’s closed eyes. He fell asleep during my 3 episode binge of a new Amazon Prime series, The Wheel of Time. His glasses were perched on his noseContinue reading “Bedtime Thoughts”

Prompts Into Action

The north this weekend was filled with mild weather and sunshine to the delight of many who anticipate a storm right before they hit the roads for holiday travels. There’s numerous stories up here of families driving through ice and snow storms on the way to Grandma’s. Our white knuckle adventures on the way toContinue reading “Prompts Into Action”

The Holiday List

Thanksgiving is next week and I’m thinking I might want to be a the Black Friday crowds next week. Do I really want to join in the frenzy this year only to wait in extremely long lines? I think I might hit a few craft sales and boutique stores for some unique finds this weekend.Continue reading “The Holiday List”

Winter Wonderland

This week has been filled with drizzle the past few days and the Minnesota dread set in at the start of this weekend. I actually saw the s—— word in the forecast. I don’t know about you but I left those spaces blank for a reason and I do call the winter weather word aContinue reading “Winter Wonderland”

Social Media Star

Just a few more days to the weekend and excitement is the air for fellow authors. The two soon to be new authors I’m helping just informed me that they’re getting their website ready for launch day! After I finish a few more rounds of proofs, it’s time to help new authors with the hardestContinue reading “Social Media Star”

Howl At The Moon

Tonight, I think I’m going to stand outside and howl at the moon. Maybe some neighborhood dogs will join me. I’m sorry but an annoyed neighbor would only make me do it again. And they do have furry friends. If they ask, because I don’t have a dog, I can say I was trying toContinue reading “Howl At The Moon”
