Change Adds Up

IMHO Life is made up of tiny moments that all add up. A small change today and add to it tomorrow is like gently watering a newly planted tree. We give our children love and shower them with the gift of time spent together. Preparing them for the world that won’t always be so patient and kind. Our home is a refuge from the storm. I know it’s hard to shut the door to the frustrations that…

General Thoughts on Heroes (Spring Clean AtoZ speak)

Intro Participating in the last 3 years of Cheryl Sleboda’s spring clean blog hop has been critical in my development as an artist and my life. Not joking. Seriously, I am too busy, too engineer, too Spock, too Sheldon, too much geek or what ever box you chose to put me in. Yes, I know, I am like Yoda–weird and small saying things and doing things that don’t make sense to all. I mean no disrespect. Only…

protect your tools from dust and damp

Changes. The one thing that stays the same is that nothing stays the same. As the spring clean blog hop is underway–on Day 2,  let’s talk H2O–water. Perspective can trick us. Imagine water carving a river so Grand that it creates a canyon. Okay, lets get the silliness going. Cause Grand Canyon is inspiring, but who is the real villain to be on the look out for in your creative space? Villains–Dusty and Dampness Dust is the arch-villian…

YAY! I won

I’m not even sure what I won, but winning is FUN isn’t it?   Today on Facebook I saw that @sizzix was doing a live video with @kidgiddy, so I popped in. Did I answer the question right the first time?  Nope. I first answered, IceCream with Sprinkles.  Seemed like a good guess what is Kerry Goulder’s favorite food. What do you do when you don’t know something–like the words IRL, IQF or IQM?  You can do…

Old Jeans, Seams and Dreams

Sometimes opportunity knocks, in the form of old jeans in need of new life–and with just a few hours to do the hack. I thought, if you give a fish, vs teach to fish… I have time to make a tutorial video on #snapchat. I spent about an hour doing the first pair BECAUSE OF THE VIDEO!!!  That pair was left with raw edge, but had reinforcement stitches (low tech, aka hand sewing) on the side-seams so pants…

Rejected (a fresh perspective and honest conversation)

The text below is taken word for word from a Facebook conversation that might not have occurred at this level if my blogposts were easier to respond to (my tech team is working that!).  I’ve not corrected any typos in the text below, and this is not out here as an example of perfect writing, but of real life conversation, with an award winning professional longarm quilter from Germany.  I’m honored to have received this feedback and…

  • being brave we nurture our future, treasure the love and teach without bias. My respect to all those parents and kids of the last sixteen years who rebuild trust and hope while ensuring safety in these uneasy times--where a smile can seem rude or callous on q day of pain. I smile that all those who give aid, that they feel the love, that unending awe , that honors their sacrifice #bernesemountaindog #bmd #moon #patriotday #parents #teachers
  • Baysox Season ended -- top of the ninth on day nine of month nine on this my twenty-ninth year after school. My words spill out in cadence with Giamatti's GreenFields. This game evolved, the minor leagues fly through games in under two hours. Pace of the Game rules in action. Pack up Baysox until next spring, to restart that pattern of life, and hope. @bowiebaysox @milb @ballislife #sports #lifelessons
