     January is all about being bundled!  Hope you are staying warm. 

                       It snowed here last night.  This is a view from my studio window.

There's something uniquely special about each of us!  I think as you get older this becomes easier to discover.  When I was younger I felt a lot of shame and embarrassment around being dyslexic.  As an adult I've discovered it is part of my magic.  Yes, it takes me longer to read and the process isn't relaxing or fluid but, it is also what helps me see things differently.  My brain processes things differently and that's okay– in fact I've realized this can work in my favor.  Another benefit... I'm used to working hard, because reading a large amount of text is difficult for me– I don't expect it to be easy & have learned to dig in & do it anyhow.  This skill has served me well in other areas of my life too!

Your super power might just surprise you.

HELLO, WORLD! Garden Time


My new HELLO, WORLD! board book Garden Time is now available.  This simple story walks young readers through the step by step process of growing a garden.  Helpful labels point out special parts to keep an eye out for if you decide to try out your green thumb!  I know I have spring fever & this book would be fun to read year round.

I painted you a key to open new doors in the New Year!  Here's to a year of growing, resilience & health!  Happy Birthday – 2022!  Let's all make a wish.

Around the corner....


A new year awaits!  I like the idea of a new year but don't buy into the whole new you idea.  In most cases there was nothing wrong with you to begin with!  Also never understood why you'd wait to change something until January 1st?  

Hope you're doing well, resting up & ready to keep shining in 2022.  I like how that date looks on the page.   I also remember thinking 2020 had a pretty, round look to it (numerically) & that year was a mess so no predictions from me!  Either way we'll keep hanging in there.

Pink Christmas


Where ever you call home... I hope it's filled with joy!  Wishing you & yours a Merry Christmas.  And if Christmas is not your thing I wish you a couple days of calm. 

I'm dreaming of a pink Christmas!  It wouldn't be the strangest thing that happened this year.

****Stay safe, jolly and warm ****

Winter Solstice


Today is the shortest day of the year & marks the official start of winter.  I plan on holing up with warm cups of peppermint tea & a good book.  Makes perfect sense to tuck in early tonight to catch some extra z's.  

For those of use who miss the light...  from here on out (precisely June 21st) our friend the sun will shine just a little longer each day.
