Are you ready? It’s April Fool’s Day, and if I’m perfectly honest, I kinda hate this holiday. I think it’s probably because I’m too gullible, and I don’t like it when someone pulls the wool over my eyes. Or, it could be that I’m just not a very naturally funny person, so I can never come […]

It’s Easter weekend! We’re planning a low-key affair, but with enough Easter eggs to keep the smaller member of the household quite satisfied. I’m wishing I had some Easter eggs planned for myself, if I’m honest. Anyone know if the Easter Bunny will drop off eggs for older, erm, children? Have a wonderful weekend – […]

It’s Springtime! Close enough anyway, as the Spring Equinox is finally happening this weekend. Birdie has literally been counting down the days, certain that come Monday morning somehow the world will have turned green, sunny, and fragrant with flowers. Unfortunately, here in Minnesota, that won’t really be the case. But hey, we’re on our way […]

March is definitely not starting off with a bang. I’ve talked with several people who all feel the same way: this first week kind of sucked. Things going wrong, stinky attitudes, short tempers, and general discontent. I’m not enjoying it. Apparently, astrologically there’s a reason for it, but I’m not the one to explain it. […]

This week kind of flew by – which in February I consider a good thing, since every day is one day closer to Spring. Which I’m practically hallucinating for already. But the week included sketching some reindeer, making some banana bread, playing with Birdie, skipping my dentist appointment (don’t worry, I rescheduled), and I wrapped […]

This has been a week. My sweet little Birdie only had a 3-day school week thanks to a faculty retreat. I may work at home, which sounds incredibly convenient when school is out – at least, it sounds convenient to everyone but me! There is still work to do. So, here we are, stumbling through […]

It’s interesting to note that 2016 has so far been a very calm, slow, kind year to me. I can only cross my fingers that it continues. The best parts about this week are little things that turn out to make a big difference towards getting to that calm, peaceful feeling. I’ve started meditating with […]

It has been a slow, introspective kind of week around here. Which I have to say, was so well-deserved. I’m in between big deadlines, and had time to finish up some long overdue things. Plus, there are new Valentines over at Smallful – but don’t worry, I’ll share those with you next week! In the […]

This week flew by in a haze of the usual flotsam and jetsam of life. Not much happened really, and yet each day was full of stuff. You know how it goes: life is in the little things, right? That’s what this week was – one big bowl of little things. So though I don’t have […]

Every January when I finally feel like I’ve recovered from the Holidays I look around and realize Valentine’s Day is suddenly just around the corner. At least, the stores and websites would all have me believe it! And I definitely feel behind over at Smallful – I’ve got to get some new stuff going asap! […]

This week, I have but one goal: get all the important things done so that I can take a vacation. As a freelance designer and blogger, it hit me the other day that I never take one, ever! So that’s it, my master plan this Christmas is to give myself a gift that only I can: […]

November is drawing to a close and all I can think about is stuffing and gravy. Maybe a few random thoughts for cranberries, and then a lot of ruminating about pumpkin pie. Yes, this week included lots of other things: working in my new studio space, starting to volunteer at Birdie’s school, wrapping up some freelance […]

I think it’s been proven that the moment you relax after a stressful time is the time you’re more likely to get sick. If it hasn’t been proven, I have some compelling evidence to offer up after this past week! It was going to be a much calmer, quieter week of catching up on some minor […]

The best part of this week is happening this afternoon. All the other days were pretty standard fair, with school, work, sleep, whining, hugs, and all the other things that go with being a mom and a boss lady. But today, Birdie is dancing with the St. Paul Ballet. Ok, so, it’s through an artist-in-residence […]

Well, as of this week, I’ve officially decided it’s too late to catch up any time this year. I’ll start fresh in 2016. But from now until Christmas, I can tell you right now I’ll be flitting from one deadline/crisis to the next! Ah the holidays, gotta love’em, right? So many great projects to get […]
