Some Halloween Fun…

After I created my snowman phone carrier a few weeks ago, I couldn't help but think about what I could make for the interim period between the warm, summer days that we've left behind here in MT and the Christmas season that--aside from me--no one wants to be reminded of quite yet. 😉 I browsed… Continue reading Some Halloween Fun…

A Little Knit of This and a Little Knit of That

But first, an update! I can now share two more contest results with you: I didn’t win. 😛 After I have a chance to read over my entry for the Guideposts' short story contest and retweak some things (cuz that’s what writers love to do—tweak, tweak, and more tweak), I’ll share it here. A part… Continue reading A Little Knit of This and a Little Knit of That

A Little Bit of Knit

As I write this, my daughters and I are visiting relatives in MA during my girls’ Montana spring break. We’re nearing the final few days, and I’m trying not to blink. Whenever I go on a trip (heck, sometimes when Hubby just drives us to church), one of my must-haves is some kind of knitting… Continue reading A Little Bit of Knit

Tinsel Doll Part II

Summers usually find me accomplishing far more knitting than writing. This summer is no exception. In some ways, however, I've still been able to hobnob with my book characters, since the items I knitted were for them. Here’s a snapshot of where I left them (and you) in Part I: Shortly after that post, I… Continue reading Tinsel Doll Part II

First, let me give a shout-out to those of you who have recently chosen to follow my blog. Welcome! I’m so glad to have you join us.

Tinsel à la Phone Case

Last week I shared some of the things I worked on this summer when I had limited writing time. But I saved the best for last. Well, best in my opinion. 😉 If you’ve followed me for a while (or know me in person), then you've come to realize I love Christmas. Which is part… Continue reading Tinsel à la Phone Case

Though Writing Ebbs, the Creative Waters Keep Flowing

I didn’t get a lot of new writing done this summer. With the lack of a schedule, the kids being home for summer break, a family vacation, and the fact I wanted to focus more on querying agents when I did get time to write, fresh words just didn’t make it on the page. But… Continue reading Though Writing Ebbs, the Creative Waters Keep Flowing

It’s a Knit World After All…

This summer my family and I are headed to Walt Disney World in Florida. In honor of Mickey Mouse, I thought I would knit and felt a phone case in his colors. I sent a picture of it to my niece before I’d completely finished knitting it and she liked it so much, I decided… Continue reading It’s a Knit World After All…

Laptop bag…er, sleeve

My MacBook’s back. I got it back that same evening after I sent it off in the morning with my hubby to the authorized service provider. Guess what was wrong with it? Nothing. [Insert sheepish grin] If I had applied my iPhone knowledge to my MacBook and forced a shutdown by simply holding down the… Continue reading Laptop bag…er, sleeve

Have bag. Will travel. Almost.

I’m on vacation for the next few weeks. When you think of the word “vacation,” what first springs to mind? Maybe relaxation. A time to unwind. A yummy drink in one hand and a good book in the other. Or maybe it means going to new places, seeing new sights, doing something different and fun… Continue reading Have bag. Will travel. Almost.
