Would you miss the color blue?

In one of the best pranks I know, you leave out a bowl of M&Ms. Unbeknownst to others, you place a smattering of Skittles directly underneath the M&Ms. Most people who eat M&Ms (at least in my friend circle) do so by the handful. So, all you have to do is wait for your victims to grab a handful of candy and shove them into their mouths, releasing a strange mix of chocolate and tangy fruit all in one go.…

I am very limited to what I can do to spruce up my space with my space (#renting). Before you shout out your favorite DIYer on YouTube, Pinterest, or Blogger (I follow many) I prefer to let my own personal style come through. There are times when I am collecting pieces for decor that I've seen and admire and other times I just feel my way through. There are several backyard/patio sets and scenes I admire and others that I'd love that don't quite fit the budget nor my style, I haven't decided…

3 Facts About Writing Picture Books

Years ago, before I wrote my first picture book, I thought that picture books were really easy to write.  I figured, well, they are short and how hard can it be to write a short book?

How wrong I was.

First of all, when you are writing a picture book usually you are writing for a younger audience. So you have to use short sentences and simple words.

Secondly, you have to make it interesting. Most picture books are short, so you have to grab their attention and keep it.…

Staying inside the lines

Throughout college, I kept a secret. There was something that I liked to do to relieve stress, but only when my roommate wasn't around. (I didn't want her judging me.) But I often found myself around exams week taking a break from my studies and taking a few minutes out of my day to color.…

Color Me Anything I Want!!!

Ever wish you could change the color of your eyes to really make your peepers pop?? Oh wait…you can. Color contact lenses. Argh. No matter who the manufacturer is, the hues are still super-fake looking, even after so many years. Staring deep into someone’s really oddly opaque blue eyes is a slight bit disturbing. So I’ve heard. Or when they float around on your brown irises because let’s face it, it’s not a one size fits all product, and you look like an alien with one half-green eye and one…

Learn How to Keep Your Toddler’s Artwork off of the Walls and Furniture

A few weeks ago, my husband asked me if I needed anything from the store.  I asked him if he would pick up my youngest son a coloring book because he kept grabbing my pen from me when I wasn’t watching and kept telling me that he wanted to draw.  I took the pen away from him and he was devastated, even though…

Till Death Do Us Barf

Misadventures in Motherhood:  Till Death Do Us Barf

Weddings are wonderful, festive, life-changing, and occasionally disastrous events. I suppose Forrest Gump's famous line could apply to them, in that you never know what you're gonna get.

I was absolutely thrilled when my best friend asked me to be Matron of Honor in her New Year's Eve…

Creating New Colors - Pantone


Though I love color (and color on top of color), I had never given much thought to how colors are created. I guess it’s something that I always took for granted… That colors just… were.

Turns out that new colors need to be created to match current consumer trends…

Yellow makes me feel like a banana . . .

Does yellow make you feel like a banana? Is red just like lava? And does purple make you feel like an onion? If so, then you, too, will succeed as an Art Mom in my child's classroom.

Being an Art Mom is simple: You prepare a little program that teaches the kids about artists or color or a style of art, and then develop a little project to go with it. It's a lot of fun - second graders are a very appreciative audience.

I decided to talk about color and moods - you know, how does…

Black Friday – it’s Not Just About Fashion

Fashion, eh? It comes and goes, then comes back around again, at once fleeting and eternal. A style is in one month and then is never heard of again – until it is heard of again, of course.

The quest for fashionable clothes never ends; it’s just that what is in vogue is always changing.…
