So, remember the upcycled doll house I’m making from a book shelf? I had picked up a bunch of thrift store finds, meaning to repurpose them into […]

My VRBO gambling habit

Napili Point in Maui-013

Maui Sometimes you’ll find gaps in my blogging schedule. And that’s because ‘the current zone’ I’ve sunk myself into hasn’t allowed me to surface yet. Getting stuck in zones can eat me alive. Anyway, because that whatever it was took so much time out of my life, I’ll write a blog post about it, but then leave […]

Growing rust in a spring yard

spring garden-003

The sun came out in our area. And while it’s nice to see, it’s still fairly cold. So I’ve had no enticement to get outdoors and play in the soil yet. But spring is struggling to reach its way to the top regardless.  As cold as it has been, I just felt like taking a walk […]

The secret to successful public speaking
