Blogging Your Way & Tidbits about me

a painting from 7th grade, a doll given to me by my first customer, little doll given to me
 years later and some curtain fabric.


I am super loving this BYW e-course with Holly and Leslie. These peeps have some good teacher DNA, the course work is presented in a totally different fashion from Kelly Rae's. Holly as well as Leslie, like for things to be real pretty, some girlie girls, I would say. I tried super hard to get into this e-course, over the winter, but I failed to meet the sign up deadline, due to funding. Now that I'm in this course, and loving it, I'm super thankful, that I took FlyN lessons first, because this type of instruction is needed, weather we blog or not. After the FlyN Lessons e-course, I really wanted to jump into some hands on creative projects, that have been waiting for me for some time now. But with, zero income and a mortgage, I knew as much as I wanted to paint, I needed to create a source of income for my children and myself.

When I opened my portfolio, there to my wondering eyes, were magazines I created years ago, not one but three magazine, layouts and all. My daughter, Lillian has what the public school system terms a severe learning disability, she is unable to process words with multiple meanings (sun/son).

One super hot July day, more than two years ago, I quit the best JOB, I've ever had, all in one day. I worked at a daily newspaper, at night ... which all to often, ran into mourning. My children, would get out of school at 3PM and I had to be at work at 3PM ... everyday at 3PM by heart broke, until one day, I simply had no heart. Working nights for years in the publishing industry, is a super tough job, working nights for years in the publishing industry as a single Mother is death as I would put the paper to bed, at 2AM and get my children ready for school at 6 AM.  .... to be continued

  $5 Inspired Studios Magazine is here! Inspirations come and Inspirations go, then inspirations linger in our spirit, untouchable, by the outside world and we press on. Others call us crazy, but we press on. We ourselves, understand it not ... but we press on. Inspired Studios Magazine; shares stories of pressing on in our visions, that none can see.  I have a theory, about GOD, abundance and the gift of inspiration, it goes something like this ... GOD passes out inspiration, like Santa throwing candy at a Christmas Parade. Some children run, and grab the sweet stuff, eat it, before a parent can say no. Some, stand on the sidewalk wishing, they had the courage to step off the curb and grab it. And, then, there are the children, who quietly grab, themselves some candy, slip it, into their pockets, planning to unwrap it later, when they can  enjoy it's sweetness, it's flavor and it's bite. A Facebook post  this past Spring, led me to Seth Godin's post about the fut
