Let us give thanks…everyday

Back in 2010 a book came out called "One Thousand Gifts" by Ann Voskamp. Maybe you read it too? It was a life changing book, and I don't say that lightly. “I want to see beauty. In the ugly, in the sink, in the suffering, in the daily, in all the days before I die,... Continue Reading →

You Don’t Need to be Called ‘Creative’ to Create

"Creative" is one of the words people use to describe me. I've heard it from a very young age. I had a wonderful aunt and mother who encouraged my creativity. I went to art school.
