“I don’t sew” vs a pile of possibilty.

I don't sew. But in the last two days I've recovered four throw pillows, freehanded three tote bags for the kids' library books, and mended a quilt. All this because my older sister asked to store and possibly use her extra sewing machine as a favor to her closet space. And also could she offload … Continue reading “I don’t sew” vs a pile of possibilty.

Opportunity to laugh {Five Minute Friday}

We have a chance to decide how to look at things. Sometimes it's easier to be annoyed by the small stuff. Just irked at every possible turn. Mad at all the outcomes that didn't turn out quite how we imagined. Or just annoyed at all the ridiculous around you.

Called to Create {Some Rambling and a Book Review}

Day 29 of my 100 day project has contained a hefty handful of self-doubt and why-am-I-even-doing this. Because sometimes making stuff that lives on the internet feels fairly pointless, but also entertaining that kind of existential doubt isn't really worth my while.

Walk through the door {The Kind Side}

Each little moment of your life is planned and held. Sometimes it doesn't feel like it as you are bumping through your everyday, tripping over details you thought you had figured out, or questioning yourself or your people. But every now and then the moments come together and a step you have been hoping to … Continue reading Walk through the door {The Kind Side}

Next Up: #The100DayProject

I'm always up for a good project or challenge. Last year, I participated in the project in a quiet way. It took longer than 100 days to get my 100 days in, but I did it. I filled a small note card nearly every day with some words I needed to hear that day. This … Continue reading Next Up: #The100DayProject
