50. The things we do to keep going

My home study/office is littered with artwork all over the walls. I look up from my computer and get inspired by art, quotes, and posters. I let my mind wander a little looking at all the abstract, a brief respite from work. Then it’s back to work. In my classroom I don’t have a lot […]

49. Keeping everything in line

Staying on top of things is important, and it keeps you from feeling overwhelmed later on. For example, this summer I hashed out my outline schedule for what the first few months of school would be. So when I went back, I knew what papers to pull, and what things to copy. That way, I […]

48. Blueberry pie advice

Over the summer I picked enough blueberries from our bushes to make blueberry pie. My husband is a great cook, while I am excellent at using a microwave. So my husband did all the mixing while I handed him everything and read off the recipe we were following. “Okay, sugar is added. What’s next?” my […]

47. Helping hand

I recently had a consultation with someone to help them with business cards. Okay, they were making cards to hand out as a wedding reminder, but they wanted it done using a business card. I helped them through the process, and by the end of the night the client got the result that they wanted. […]

46. Tea recipes

I kind of like the idea of getting more into digital products. I have my short stories, and some more products I am kicking around for Shop MGSpear, but I don’t really have anything digital for Teazzed—currently I just sell our awesome biodegradable Teazzed straw that quick brews tea in under 30 seconds. What I […]

45. Another project update

I keep putting off writing my update on my big project. Remember that post when I was frustrated and wanted my next experiment to work? Well, it didn’t. And the next one didn’t. And then the one after that failed too. But you know what? Rather than get discouraged enough to quit, alternative ideas kept […]

44. This is Halloween

Halloween 😊. A day where people dress up and eat candy and carve pumpkins and have a great time. Some people consider this day mostly to be propaganda to sell candy and Halloween decorations, but I it is so much more than that. I tend to think of Halloween as a time people wear masks. […]

43. Learning new things

I’ve been getting into Photoshop lately (as evidenced by some of the images in my book, Black Cat Scribbles Vol. 1), and I’ve been having fun adding more to my repertoire and messing around. So now I spend some of my limited free time creating art. My stuff isn’t Picasso level or anything, but I […]

42. What you mind sees and start of the Halloween sale!

Writing is kind of second nature to me. I really like doing it, and I consider it painting with words. When I read or write something a movie plays across my mind. Because of that, I can read pretty fast, as long as an image is forming for me. Now with technical stuff, I have […]

41. The whole story behind the quest of the dehumidifiers

Okay, the real story behind the three dehumidifiers mentioned in the previous post: this summer we got a lot of rain, making it humid outside the house, and that humidity built up all inside the house as well. And that humidity attracted tons and tons of centipedes. They covered the porches, coated the garage door, […]
