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 […]

Every time I think I’ve learned my lesson, I catch myself falling into old habits. Right now, it has everythign to do withm y workload, procrastination, and learning to say no. Anyone else have this problem? I’m trying really hard to not think of that quote about the definition of insanity: doing the same thing […]

How did this first week of September disappear on me? On the plus side, I finally feel like i got something done, but of course on the other side, it wasn’t enough. Is it ever enough? I think I’ll go get back to it! Meanwhile, round about the internet: Because I’m still in love with […]

This last week of our summer vacation started out very bland, but I think we turned it around yesterday with a whirlwind trip to the Minnesota State Fair. I cannot believe how much we crammed into about 3 hours of time – because in the end we had to rush out of there to get […]

So last week about this time I think I was telling all of you I’m not ready for school to start yet. Well, I’ve changed my mind. We’ve had cool temperatures all week, Birdie has been home all day every day, and all I can think about is warm tea, fall decorations, and a quiet […]

The highlights of my week were definitely not the two days Birdie was home sick from day camp, nor was it the sinking feeling that I was getting sick too. It also wasn’t the feeling that I should have been working much harder than I was able to. Nope. Instead the highlights of my week were taking […]

Another week of summer is slipping away, and with it so goes July too. Are you ready for the end of summer county fairs and back to school prep? Nah, I’m not either. Let’s drown ourselves in these links instead, and pretend summer is forever. Meanwhile, round about the internet: The easiest way to get […]
