Summer Mode

The beginning of my summer is kicking off with a visit to mom and dad for quiet time out in the northern country. Staying out in a place where the city lights are glaring behind curtains and fire trucks are racing down the street go quiet. The first night out of the city feels oddContinue reading “Summer Mode”

Work In Progress

A new week has begun and I’m on break from my show circuit for a few weeks. Having back to back shows was a new challenge for me, especially because I have a handmade business. Growing a business that relies on you to finish multiple novels or art pieces is a constant learning experience. BeingContinue reading “Work In Progress”

Making It Simple

Breaking away from my clay and cramped fingers, I sat down to get in an episode of my Japanese drama series. The lives of two friends go down different paths at the same school as they try to find their way away from their hometown. The way one girl held her smile over a simpleContinue reading “Making It Simple”

Happy Monday

The has begun and I spent all weekend making miniature figurines with needle tools and sparkling dust. This is show week and I had to start out start by making a post. Somehow I managed to fit in a morning out for breakfast with all those celebrating Mother’s Day early. We had to wait longerContinue reading “Happy Monday”

Self Writing

Another late night writing session is in order as I type into midnight. Maybe I should open my own diner for writers who can’t sleep or wake up in the middle of night because they’re woken up by their inner writing muse. My pen continues to call and each time it does, I’m thankful. TheContinue reading “Self Writing”

Just Write

After days of cold and rain, I finally felt the warmth of the sun on my face with another successful art event this past weekend. The weather started out crisp, then teetered over into the celebration of shorts and no coat. I celebrated the fact that I started to break a small sweat in theContinue reading “Just Write”

Time for a Change

This week I’m doing a bit of moonlighting by writing my posts in the evening because of all the things occurring during the day. Those who follow me, know that sometimes I also experiment with the time of day that I write. Playing around with time, place, and location may help your writing get unstuck.Continue reading “Time for a Change”

Sweet Monday

The month of May is here and starting off busy in my studio. I have 2 more large art events coming up in the next few weeks and my home is stacked with boxes of supplies and pieces wrapped in layers of bubble wrap. I knew the crazy pace I wanted to set this yearContinue reading “Sweet Monday”

Vacation Days

This week I decided to rest some more after working hard after a successful weekend at Geek Craft Expo. There were thousands of visitors that came to see all of the many talented creators and my husband and I were busy handling the rush. He and I had the good, tired feel at the endContinue reading “Vacation Days”


The late nights this week have me droppy-eyed. The sacrifice of sleep for my art and my writing may mean that a few days off are in order. Yesterday I was too busy creating more miniatures until 2:00 in the morning and I missed my usual post time. So, if you take a look atContinue reading “Showtime!”


“Writing is a process of questions.” Glen Gers The middle of the week is here and I’m wondering how everyone is doing with their writing? As we get busy with our lives, sitting down in our seat for a few minutes can feel like a chore. When that happens, I always go back to theContinue reading “Homework”

Story Telling Methods

This week I’m still working on my rooftop exercise from last week. I extended my short scene to let the story unfold for another day. The piece that I created last week can stand alone but what do I need if I continue? The advantage of writing a longer story is the ability to revealContinue reading “Story Telling Methods”
