I’ve had these photos sitting on my hard drive for a while, but never got around to doing anything with them.  In August, we stayed up late with Kara & Remington to watch the Perseid Meteor Shower.  We set up our camera on a tripod to automatically snap a photo every 30 seconds, then sprawled… read more »

  When summer rolls around each year, my reading tastes shift a bit.  I indulge in stories that are lighter, easy reads – ones that are perfect for kicking back in a chair and wiggling your toes in the sand while someone brings you a fruity adult beverage in half a pineapple with a tiny… read more »

my-artist-way-toolkit-1

I first heard of The Artist’s Way by Julia Cameron several years ago.  A creative friend of mine was reaching a point of burnout and needed some techniques to get herself centered again.  She wrote a public journal of her experiences with using the program, and though I was intrigued, I never got around to… read more »
