Having your creative work space set up is foundational to being productive on greater levels. When certain conditions are present, you can become more attracted to the space and drawn there naturally. It also allows greater accomplishment as you are able to focus on your magic with all your tools at hand.
Here are some step-by-step… Continue

I turn to investigate Darth Vader like breathing behind my head. Turns out, according to my mom, that every child can get their WHOLE FIST in their mouth. Question is... can he get it out?

We hear this phrase in relation to almost every aspect of life - decor, fashion, life - as in: have one or two main focal points in a room, pare down your accessories, get rid of that clutter to live clearly. This version of Less is More pertains to a slightly more superficial matter, but not one that should ever be overlooked - I'm talking about the makeup on our faces.
I grew up always wearing makeup, I played with it since I was in the sixth grade. I started as many did, with the… Continue

I woke up this morning to a 13 month old with a slight cough and a refusal to eat. Had to be the Swine Flu I thought. We've been out and about so much lately she must have gotten sick from the thousands of strangers who approach us daily, because for some reason people love babies. They especially love to touch them.
I understand most people mean well, but how I am to know that the man with the crumpled shirt, tousled hair, half eaten tuna… Continue

School is coming to a end for my girls and with that, comes girls softball. They have a great time playing it and I enjoy watching them. This activity is fun and helps keep them active and entertained through most of their summer vacation. The downfall of it, is that their games are typically a few times a week and right after I get off from work. This means that I have a limited amount of time to prepare and cook dinner for my family. It's not unheard of to hear of other families who are… Continue

Something I hear a lot about gay and lesbians parents is, “You know they love their kids, because they really wanted them.” True enough, there are no “accidents” when it comes to babies among same-sex couples. So does that make us good parents?
Of course, many gays and lesbians have children from previous heterosexual relationships, and some of those children were not planned, but for most of us, it is a conscious choice to bring children into our lives. At gatherings of Westside… Continue

Nobody Sings About My Life on the Good Stations
by Pamela Victor
For some reason I’ve been drawn even more to music lately, and I’ve been listening carefully to lyrics. I noticed that the vast majority of songs are about – yes, you knew this already – love and loss. It’s all so heartfelt and tragic. Extreme. Exciting. Emotional. Full of nerves and sexuality and rapidly beating hearts. Longing looks. Regret. Sadness and heartbreak.
This morning, I was listening… Continue

I recently had one of my products reviewed by a fellow mom blogger A Pocket Full Of Buttons
. I was so absolutely nervous, since this was my first review on one of my products. My mom is here visiting, and wanted to know how it said, I was too scared to read. You never know what someone else is going to think of a product you make, and love yourself. Well, after about, hmmm, 10 minutes, I finally read it. Was it ever amazing!! To know that… Continue

I never thought that I would ever date anyone again after my divorce. My family and friends said to give it at least a year before I get involved with someone else. I took that advice and also started seeing a therapist to help emotionally cope with my divorce. This last year I have rediscovered my old self and also gain a new perspective on life. Through this whole roller coaster ride that I have been on for 12 month, deep down inside I felt rather lonely. I was with my ex-husband for almost… Continue

Had a really bad afternoon with the kiddos yesterday. Really. Really. Bad.
For whatever reason (read: taking advantage of the fact that Mommy is traveling), they decided it would be a good idea to fight in the truck all the way home, NOT do their chores, smear toothpaste all over the bathroom counter, and turn their rooms into landfills. And while, no, none of this is really new, it was all at one time, and all on top of a couple of weeks now of Amy & I continually badgering them… Continue

I've very excited to announce that beginning tomorrow, I’m going to begin a weekly post with a positive, natural childbirth story. I’m lining up guest posters who will be sharing their personal stories of how they brought their baby into the world.
I’m a huge natural childbirth advocate. If you think women who have natural births are martyrs with something to prove, you might want to stop reading now, I’m about to get on my soap box. Don't say I didn't warn you.
The idea… Continue

After yesterday's hoped for, prayed for, wished for and very much relieving news of Julia's clean spinal fluid, my family is trying with all our might to adjust to yet another new NORMAL. We are a family that to this point, has survived pediatric cancer. We know how lucky we are and are happy to trade our lottery winning luck for beating cancer luck any day. At least that explains why we haven't won the lottery!
So I am now onto blogging about other important issues! I have struggled for… Continue

Driving home yesterday, my son asked me if he had jumps.
“Jumps?” I replied “Yes,” He said “Anushka told me that if I don’t cover my mouth when I cough, I will get jumps in my nose. Then I will have to go to the hospital and the Dr. will give me soup!
Anushka, is his classmate who has a British accent and “jumps” means GERMS. I think Anu’s been watching to much CNN!

I’m not the type of Trekkie that dresses up like a Volcan, Rommulan, or Cardasian wielding vintage collector’s weapons and attending conferences. But I did grow up faithfully watching this beloved TV show and I’m here to tell you that I give JJ Abrams an A+.
Last night I was surprised to find out that the professional networking meeting that I had prepared for is next week, and decided to take advantage of having a babysitter by going to a movie. My choices as a science fiction freak… Continue

Let me tell all divorced parents that have little ones and crazy ex-spouses. Get a lawyer, document everything, and be careful how you present yourself.
I just got my daughter, Tyler, six-years old, back this past Sunday. If your ex and/or the new spouse is a bully, fight smart and be pre-pared for anything.
If your ex-, is a millionaire, tax evader and fraud recording artist and pastor like mine, get a lawyer and pre-pare to fight. If you don't have money to fight, find… Continue
