Beach Freedom

Curly hair has it’s own innate wisdom, and should you need to deal with it, it’s best to just go along with whatever it says. Help me by sharing!

Sinking Lighthouse

This week’s colour collective is Limpet Shell, and after missing several lovely colors because I’ve been too busy, I didn’t want to miss this one! We’re heading to Florida in a few days, and I was inspired by the story of the lighthouse restoration on St. George Island. According to authorities on the subject, the lighthouse […]

Supermom Moment – Grilled Cheese

Grilled cheese sandwiches are my perfect comfort food. It’s what my mom made when we were sick, or home from school on a special day, and when I’m feeling particularly low or stressed I make it for myself and the kids. Sometimes. Often. Okay, almost all the time. Help me by sharing!

Dressed Up

I realized recently that I am an “ambivert” – someone who exhibits characteristics of both an extrovert and an introvert, which would explain why I sometimes score one and then sometimes the other on highly scientific Facebook tests. I’m rarely intimidated in social situations, and I don’t mind being the center of attention, but I’m usually at […]

Dragons and Fairies

I’ve started participating in Colour Collective again, one of the loveliest artist communities out there, organized on twitter. Each week a new color is given, and a wide variety of illustrators create works of art using that color. I’m creating some original artwork for a card game I’m developing, with the help of my creative […]

Spring Cleaning

True story. There’s more than one way to accomplish spring cleaning, and finding a spider is a great way to get me to delve into every crack and crevice, layering bug spray and removing potential and unexpected hiding places like toilet paper rolls and dirty socks. On a side note, I’m testing out how I feel about […]

Halloween 2015

The last two years we have enjoyed store-bought costumes, as John & James have chosen superheros or transformers. I have to say, the break was good. But this year, I opted out of the October Game, which left a bit of creative free time, and we did a family Star Wars theme. Once I had the […]

Homeschool Outfit or Halloween Costume?

Unburdened by dress codes and undisturbed by peer pressure, homeschooling families can easily lose track of the whole concept of “appropriate attire.” In a world where you must choose your battles, the fight against mismatched socks can feel rather absurd. This Halloween you may want to take a moment before complimenting a costume, as the […]
