A Time-Out for Mom

Last week my girls had two days off of school – Thursday and Friday – and then I had to be at the Textile Art Alliance Boutique Exhibit and Fashion Show on Sunday. So it just seemed like a good idea for the whole family to take a few days to get away for some …

A moment in time

This has been a difficult week around here. On Monday we learned that one of the students at our middle school passed away on Sunday night. He was a classmate of one of our daughters, and since we live in a rural, farming community it seems that everyone knows everyone else. Or at least knows …

Some of my favorite things

The Thursday Favorite Things Blog Hop / Linky Party has been part of my weekly schedule for over 250 weeks! I think that calculates to around five years – but then I’ve never been known as a math genius. Most weeks things happen like clock work and I get my Thursday post up on time, …

What I’m working on now

In the midst of all the summer activity around here, we’ve also been working on sorting through the storage totes that I have out in the studio. They are filled with inventory, fabric, sweaters, trims, fabric scraps, and various other “stuff” that I use when I am designing and creating my “wearable art” collection. Which …

I have this kid . . . .

. . . . who thinks she is ready to drive but needs mama’s help taking a pizza out of the oven. She can face time her BFF in Kentucky and chat for hours about who knows what (is there really enough stuff to talk about for THAT long????), but when I ask how her …

Summer in the real world

It’s finally summer! This past weekend we had a bit of a family reunion . . . . of course, when a family has ten children and 29 grandchildren, it is rather challenging to think that you would ever have all of them together at the same time, so I’ll settle for a couple kids …

Favorite (and not so favorite) Things: Painting and Allergies

We moved into our house last autumn, with just barely enough time to get everything inside the house and garage before the weather turned cold and rainy. There were some rooms that were fairly well organized right away – the kitchen and the bathrooms. Kinda. But then there were other rooms that we just shoved …

Favorite Things: Art in the Alley

If you live in a small town, or if you have EVER lived in a small town, you will understand . . . . it can be challenging trying to get anything “new” organized and running. And it is even more difficult to keep something rolling along, even after the initial efforts to get it …

Favorite Things: Income Taxes

I am not usually a procrastinator. Most days I have a To Do list and all the tasks are prioritized so I know which things I need to focus on first. And I’m really careful to save all of our medical bills, prescription receipts, dentist bills, donation receipts, and any other bits and pieces of …

I think I have Creative Compulsive Disorder

My journey this spring and summer has been interesting. Sometimes God has a way of gently redirecting us from one pathway to a different one, but I’m the kind of person who always wants to know where I’m going ahead of time. As it turns out, God doesn’t usually give us a “heads up” about …

Over the past few months I have been completely immersed in the work we are doing at Ruby for Women. The monthly online magazine calls my name quite intently for many hours each month, and I always like to hang out in the Ruby for Women community as well as read the posts from our …
