These days it’s hard to plan a vacation. Last year everything shut down *thanks COVID* and once things opened up again this year it was like the flood gates opened for work. So the hubby and I took a very impromptu vacay at the end of June. We literally said, “ok we’ve got one week… Continue reading New Mexico Vacation
I had the opportunity to help teach G&E in two film workshops over the past few weeks. It was great to see so many new people interested in joining the industry. Plus, with the studios being build and recent boom in local productions, they couldn’t have picked a better time to get involved. Exciting things… Continue reading Industry Boom?
This is going to be my year. Sure, people say that every year. I really feel, though, that this IS going to be it for me. Ya know? It had a slow start being on crutches and all — plus the pandemic is still a thing at the moment — but I’m branching out more… Continue reading Branching Out
Hey there, been a while. So much has happened in the last year it’s insane! At the same time, social distancing and quarantine also mean that (in a way) very little has happened.

There are so many creative, ingenuitive, entrepreneurs out there and the internet has made it easier than ever to find a market and sell unique and useful merchandise — it’s great — but the internet also puts some separation between the seller and the customer as well. As good of quality work as many of… Continue reading A Note To Private Sellers
So, ACTIVISM: what is it and does it matter? Well, I’ve heard activism broken down as three categories of “activism” that we can look at…
Today marks 5 years since my hubby and I said “I do.” I wanted to write something to commemorate this milestone and reflect upon it but I don’t know what to say. Right now, we were supposed to be celebrating on a vacation (thanks COVID :P), checking out MeowWolf and trying new foods like rattlesnake… Continue reading A 5 Year Reflection
For the past few months many of us have spent most of our time stuck at home. With the outbreak of Covid-19 schools were closed, businesses shut down, and folks were prohibited from gathering in large groups. Many things have opened back up now, but life is still slow. It’ll be a long time before… Continue reading Backyard Bird Watching
Most people have an opinion on whether or not we should wash our hands. Some wash regularly, others not at all. In 2009 the CDC found that 64% of women do wash their hands after using a public restroom whereas 69% of men don’t.
