Girl’s Roadtrip!

My weekend started with an rise to frosted windshields and white tipped lawns as I hugged my husband and climbed into my Uber. My eyes were half open but I let out a relaxing sigh because a weekend out of town finally arrived! It’s time for a Girl’s Weekend and Roadtrip to Chicago, Illinois! That’sContinue reading “Girl’s Roadtrip!”

Day #22 Open

I looked at the list today, and my immediate thought was how boring.  I don’t know why I had that thought but the word prompt of the day is – Open.  I guess my brain finds opening boring.  I would never tell this to those writing queries but it feels like the kind of homeworkContinue reading “Day #22 Open”

Day #21 Fuzzy

Embrace the Fuzz!  Yes, Thursday is all about the Fuzz.  Someone decided to put the word prompt, Fuzzy on the list for October.  It’s our job to turn catlike when we look at a ball of yarn or someone’s favorite sweater.  What kind of monsters love the Fuzz?  Dryers.  So, pretend you left a delicateContinue reading “Day #21 Fuzzy”

Day #20 Sprout

Day #20 is here!  How quickly time flies when your in a challenge.  The word of the day is Sprout.  I think today’s word is a bit of fun because it can be an usual name, something that pops out of the ground, gives crunch to a sandwich, or makes you think of the JollyContinue reading “Day #20 Sprout”

Day #19 Loopy Day

LuAnn pushed the loop closed at the back of her ear, and listened for the quiet click of earring.  Her eyes went to mirror and then the empty spot next to her.  Sal always pulled these out of her jewelry box when he was going to take her out for the evening.  Not just anyContinue reading “Day #19 Loopy Day”

The Weekend

Today’s word goes along with the beginning if the weekend. In my mind, I picture everyone rushing to and from work with extra speed today because Friday is finally here. I’m even a little faster to get into the things I’ve been waiting to do all week. Maybe other people need a helmet when IContinue reading “The Weekend”

The Leaves Are Falling

It’s the middle fo the week and I woke up in the dark this morning. Did my eyes open at the right time? Driving my husband to work there was only a hint of pink in the sky this morning and my body has gone into hibernation mode. The sluggish feeling of winter has takenContinue reading “The Leaves Are Falling”

Wednesday #13 Roof

The rough, tongues lay quietly underneath my flannel pajamas as I listened to the first birds beginning to wake from from their sleep.  Slowly, the light touches my bare toes and I feel the slow creep of warmth over my body.  A warm blanket.  Silence in the city.  No one else is awake, not evenContinue reading “Wednesday #13 Roof”

Tuesday #12 Stuck

I think today’s prompt word belongs to Pooh! The moment I looked at the word for Day #12 – stuck, I immediately pictured Pooh stuck in a hole trying to get his honey. I know many of us can related to the this word because we’ve all been here during our creative process. I reallyContinue reading “Tuesday #12 Stuck”

Monday is Day #11 Sour

My desk is piled high with LED lights to fix a broken light box, pens, and clay and I turned my head away as I got ready for the week this morning.  The sluggish feeling of the morning isn’t very motivating, and I feel like it’s another Sour Monday.  A new start looks sweet butContinue reading “Monday is Day #11 Sour”

Day #10 Pick

Nothing like a lazy and quiet Sunday to nap in while the sun streams in through windows.  I feel like a comfortable cat in her pile of blankets and pillows.  Then, I woke and realized I worked in The Art Shoppe today.  While I play shop girl in Minneapolis, my mind went through the 31Continue reading “Day #10 Pick”

Friday is Day #8 – Watch

Last night meant late hours because my art muse decided to stay awake and create a miniature cauldron of green, glittery goo. I was supposed to be working on my next day of InkTober but my hands itched to make something in 3D. No matter the medium, at least these chilly months inspire creation.
