Little round weavings for the Holidays.


These were so much fun to make! I love weaving. It feels natural for me to do since I use both hands in a mindful way. Thats good for my left handedness. More information can be found on my Tumblr Miniblog SWJREADS where I take pictures of my work in progress and of finished items. I also write a little bit about the process too.

Freshen Up Your Writing: Outline to meet Word Count for Deadlines




Hi Writer friends,


Why Meet Word Count?


It’s November again, National Novel Writing month, i.e. NaNoWriMo only has one more week left and people need some way to get through the slog and finish their word count goal of 50,000 words, the length of a short novel.

Here is a video of me talking about how I track my moods in my bullet journal.

I hope you get some piece of mind, from a piece of my mind.

P.S. A couple of weeks have turned into a couple of months since I've posted this video.

A COUPLE OF PALMS Come TOGETHER And MAKE WAVES

If I was to describe this style of Art, it’s Florida through a Jersey Girl’s Eyes.

Some Palm Trees are grouped together when they grow as shown in the top piece of Art.

Palm Tree singles, couples, and multiples  are something I enjoy capturing in my art cause where there’s nostalgia, there’s grit.

A crisscross pattern of a waves crest is in the bottom one.
