I’m starting a little series specifically geared towards people and caregivers struggling with chronic illness.  I will continue making my regular movies and posts.  Both will be posted on my YouTube channel.  Episodes of the new series will be labeled “Chronical”, which is an infrequently used word in its own right, but in my mind, it’s also a wordplay on the literary chronicle and the chronic nature of our medical issues.  Posting these videos side by side feels like a more holistic representation of my life.    That said, I know that there won’t be a complete crossover in terms of the audience that the respective series appeal to, so I’m hoping that clearly labeling them means that you will be able to tell right off if a video is one that is going to be of interest to you or not.

So, without further adieu, an intro to Chronical….


more pages

More random pages from Galen’s birthday book.  Yes, I’m back to using all white background pages.  Aren’t I boring?  I can’t help it.  I like things to be simple, clean lines, all of that.  Sometimes I get really wild and crazy and change around the font.  Yup.  I am, out. of. control.  Wee-hee.

A winner has been chosen in the software giveaway.  Congratulations to Pamela Smith!  I’ll be contacting you later with your prize.

Halloween Elves

My house is right full of them.g & m

From the very little ones, who’s current favorite pastime includes “making necklaces for friends”, a very helpful diversion while the mama plugs away at Halloween costumes.

stringing(as a side note, remember those beaded car seat covers that used to be popular a while back?  A friend of mine snagged one at a rummage sale and we harvested all the wooden beads from it for hours upon hours of stringing fun.)

To family projects where everyone lends a hand…pinatas

To the older ones who have many a trick up there sleeves…DSCN5128

Our house will surely be full of treats come Halloween day!



I had several other posts planned for this week, but the week got away from me a bit.  It’s been a hectic one!  And this weekend is just full, full, full.  Wonderful, but full!  So, I will be back in this space (hopefully) on Monday.

Happy weekend everyone!
