Two new fosters for Thanksgiving, continuing with the November “gratitude” creative project, and a wonderful book to read aloud.
Mid-November check-in and thoughts on the Gratitude project as a creative project.
Finishing A Spool of Blue Thread, and what marks “must” be done on a ticker tape of the day to make you feel the day was a success or well spent?
Another birthday has come and gone. It was a good day. I believe you have to craft and make days to be what you want them to be. I believe this for myself, and it is advice I give
Thoughts on writing bios and introductions, the big question, “Am I still creative,” a bio 4 ways prompt, and a book of craft activities for kids.

No Fear of the Blank Page Here. This was a bit ago… after we spotted a Townsend’s Warbler (yellow and black with mask!) for the first time in a bush across from the house as we were going to the
[Phone photo: A little journal for a new year.] Waking up on a school morning has never been an easy process for one of my kids. One wakes up at first prompting; the other needs a bullhorn without the bull
