A morsel of inspiration for moms out there!

I have always loved anything by Sark. I read her first book, Inspiration Sandwich, when I was in college and have collected all of her books since! I have even spoken with Sark on the phone AND met her in person for book signings on more than one occassion! ...and no I was not stalking her:)

Today I needed some Sark love about chilling the @#$ out! ..the line STOP YELLING particularly spoke to me this evening:) ...ha. I thought I would share the love with all of you...

Go now and bake a cake and eat it with no hands.....xoxo

Creation Station

I have an unexpected day to myself.....Max went skiing with some friends and I don't have to work....so I have committed the day to organizing a work space ....an art space of my own. The problem is, I don't have extra rooms in the house so I am going to have to be very creative or I am going to have to put this studio on my birthday list:)......

For now it is coffee and Netflix and gathering inspiration......

15 Random Things...

I was asked to blog about 15 Random Things about myself....encouraging my dear blog readers to do the same! Below are 15 things that came to mind while watching HGTV and waiting for everyone in the other room to get their shoes on so we can go see a movie and get a pizza!! ha....here goes...15 things ....

1. I can't stand wearing socks to bed
2. My house is always clean but my car is always a pit
3. I always eat something from my cart at the grocery store and pay for the empty bag
4. I jokingly ordered food at the Wendy's Driv-Thru with a British accent one day while my son and his friend were in the car. The people at the window asked me a bunch of questions about my accent when we got to the window and I made up this big story about my Britsh "roots." I have no idea why! To this day I still use a British accent every time I go there...even if I am by myself! (and I go there about once a week, by myself, for a soft drink since it is right next to the place I buy my cat food!..ha)
5. I play a game of chess with my son every night before he goes to sleep. I hope he never outgrows this.
6. I believe in fairies.
7. My parenting philosophy is, "it is easier to mend a broken bone than a broken spirit."
8. My biggest regret is that I never joined the Peace Corps.
9. I have a black cat named Lady Luna who I think is much more than just an ordinary cat.
10. If I could ingest only one thing for the rest of my life it would be ice cold coke in a can. Actually, if I could inject it I would!
11. I do my best thinking while in my car drinking coffee
12. My husband and I plan to open a Bed & Breakfast in Vermont on a plot of family land called Wild Hill. The Bed & Breakfast will be called The Barefoot Inn. Of course this will not be until we both retire but we already have breakfast menus.
13. I am going to need to get another job to pay for all of the apps I keep downloading for my new IPAD.
14. I am planning a trip to Italy for my 40th birthday
15. I don't pay much attention to rules...
Now it is your turn!!
