A Few Hours In the Sun

Last night I watched an artist journal under the blossoms of cherry trees in Tokyo, Japan because it’s the welcome of Spring this month. The promise of warmer days are here and I reminded myself that I need to remember to celebrate what’s going on outside my own studio space. It’s too easy to sitContinue reading “A Few Hours In the Sun”

Spring Fever

The sun was finally shining again this afternoon and I had to squint because the visor of my car doesn’t go down far enough to cover my eyes. I didn’t mind after days of clouds and that fluffy white stuff that keeps clinging to my corner of town. Spring fever has returned. My mind isContinue reading “Spring Fever”

Thinking In Color

I’m back into my creator videos and those who share their sketching or writing journals. You may want to take note if you’re looking for more ways to create content. Taking ideas from those outside of your genre, or medium is another way to find new stories. I talked about change yesterday, and I wouldContinue reading “Thinking In Color”

Quiet Friday

The roads went quiet yesterday morning and I spent it watching life feed road cameras. The roads were covered and the few cars I did see moving along I hoped were emergency workers or those who didn’t need to make a coffee run. Many places did close or had call-ins. Skeleton crews were running theContinue reading “Quiet Friday”

Snow Days!

I survived the smaller amount of snow that started falling Wednesday evening and overnight. My groceries are picked up for the next few days and I continue to peak outside. The snow started falling in my neighborhood around 2:00 pm again. Emergency plans are in place and we all keep waiting up here for theContinue reading “Snow Days!”

Early Bird

Before the end of the week I’ve been busy getting all my errands done before last minute crowds head to the grocery stores and other places before the Sunday. This weekend is going to busy with those celebrating Valentine’s Day early and the big game. I’m hoping getting things done early will help me avoidContinue reading “Early Bird”

Winter Extremes

Last night, I sat shivering under the covers and writing my post thinking about all those experiencing the same chilling weather all over the country. I can’t imagine what those down south think about the kind of winters events that are normal to us up here. I saw cats on ice all over the placeContinue reading “Winter Extremes”

Winter Activities

I hope your prompting is going well this week. Are you feeling the love in the air, or something else? Everyone I’ve spoken with up North can’t wait to thaw out. January doesn’t want to let go easily as our temperatures dipped below zero every night this week. On the bright side, my husband pointedContinue reading “Winter Activities”

All Things Hearts

Starting off a new month in the middle of the week always feels odd to me but up north I’m happy we’re moving closer to spring. I’m dreaming of warmer weather during this week of the teens. I’ve been hiding inside on the weekends and working hard to create new designs for this year. LastContinue reading “All Things Hearts”

Cabin Fever

Is there something in the air that people aren’t getting along? Did the snow and cold started cabin early? Fighting friends, neighbors, and some crazy person going around the neighborhood banging on windows. I think some people have lost their sh- – or stuff at the start of the new year. I feel sucked intoContinue reading “Cabin Fever”

Valentine Temptation

I think my only goal for tomorrow is to sleep in late and not feel guilty. This is a reward for keeping up my posts during an extremely action packed and busy week while keeping up one of my writing goals. The blog has worked wonders since I started a few years ago. This isContinue reading “Valentine Temptation”

Writing Prompt Day!

For me, a new year is always a time for reflection and for setting new goals. I think about the progress and setbacks of my experiences over the past year. Spending so much thinking, I realized I missed the reason I started this blog – to get out of my writer’s block. I find thatContinue reading “Writing Prompt Day!”
