Check Out My Spruce Up Spring Special – UBC Day 8 #blogboost

Check Out My Spruce Up Spring Special – UBC Day 8 #blogboost

  PROMOTION TIME! Pinwheel Pillow   I  am still playing catch-up after a big working weekend–but it was worth it, since I was able to invoice for almost four figures! 😉 The UBC writing prompt for April 8th was to share a contest or a promotion. Since I did a contest during the last UBC month (in January), I thought I’d do a promotion post this time about my “Spruce Up Spring” special at my Etsy shop!      …

Returning to Blogging – Gratitude Challenge – November 1 Inspiration

**NOVEMBER IS HERE!** **NaBloPoMo & GRATITUDE CHALLENGE!!** If you’re not familiar with it, NaBloPoMo is the acronym for National Blog Posting Month, to coincide with NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) and NaNoFiWriMo (National Non-Fiction Writing Month), alternately now known as WNFN (Write Non-Fiction in November).

Rules of Happiness #16 – Exercise and Eat Well – January 21 Devotions

Exercising and eating well. Yes, something I’m endeavoring to do more consistently this year.

Yet when I do exercise carefully and consistently, I know I feel better overall and yes, happier. I am doing a better job of eating well, particularly transitioning to eating gluten-free, due to its connection to some of my health challenges. And again, when I eat in…

Rules of Happiness #15 – Accept What Is – January 20 Devotions

Rules of Happiness #15 – Accept What Is – January 20 Devotions

Whatever will be, will be. I guess a close saying to that one is, accept what is. That, and the “serenity prayer,” about having the serenity to accept the things we cannot change; courage to change the things we can; and wisdom to know the difference.  I’d say we need all of these things (serenity, courage, and wisdom) working together in most areas of life.

Sweet Saturday Second Celebration – Craving Approval – January 2 Devotions

Sweet Saturday Second Celebration – Craving Approval – January 2 Devotions

So yesterday, Saturday, January 2nd, my hubby Dave and I traveled out of state to have our second Christmas celebration with some of my family (including two adult daughters, sons-in-laws, and granddaughters!) One of the highlights (there were many with the granddaughters, who are only 1 and 3) was my middle daughter’s reaction to seeing their quilt completed— because it was originally presented in unfinished form as their wedding gift–just over 2 years ago (November 2013). I had to add…
