I’ve mentioned before that my pillows seem to be the bestsellers in my store. With many different designs on them, not to mention size and indoor/outdoor options, these little pieces sure add a pop of colour and personal style to any area of your home. Continue reading Outdoor Patio Decorating
Holy smokes, I have been up to a lot lately.
I have been having a blast making cool designs out of vintage images and turning them into t-shirts or home decor. In the few hours that my Baby naps, I work on these designs, or some of my writing (more below on that).
Redbubble has all the designs and illustrations.
Threadless has all my clothing
And I still have all my Landscape and Lifestyle Photography over at Society6. This store has so much fabulous home decor items, like pillows, totes, blanket’s, rugs and clocks.
My writing is slowly, slowly improving, and I have been making a writing/art project. It is a newspaper based in a fantastical, magical world that is hidden from normal, non-magical humans. The paper is called The Cunning Crow, and it reports from the city of Umbra, a hidden place in the hills South West of Kamloops, British Columbia.
Issue 1 reports on The Death March Migration, Mountain Giants and how to keep Running Roses from terrorizing the neighbors yards.
Issue 2 reports on the Shadow People attacks, and interviews Hades and Calliope on their new business venture.
All the ads are created by me, and I include explanations that really help people understand the world.
I have also been writing a thriller/murder mystery. Its still developing, but I have been really enjoying fleshing this story out.
It’s about an 18 yr old who is trying to start her life again after her parents death, but finds herself in the middle of a murder mystery in the new city she moved too. I’m wanting to make the city Kamloops, but a made up Kamloops that is a massive city instead. We’ll see.
I joined the Camp NanoWriMo, which is a great source if you need encouragement, reminders and a fun way of tracking your writing numbers. Make sure to donate to them because they do a lot of work for kids, schools etc, and NanoWriMo in November is amazing, and you can meet so many wonderful authors this way.
Anyway! Hope your days have been wonderful and productive this summer too!! thank you for stopping by and/or reading my work!!

Wild Roots Art ~The Art of Life Wild and Free~
Lately, I have been trying to find information on the The Muses, the Greek Gods of the Arts. There is surprisingly very little out there, even though it has been the artists crutch/inspiration for hundreds of years. I research a lot behind the scenes for my books and art pieces, and this one quickly becoming a time consuming conquest. The reason I set off down this road was because I have never created so much art as I have with Roland. Starting in the last half of my pregnancy I have started or finished 40 different artworks (short stories, book projects, photos, digital art) and I thought hmmm Ro is my Muse! Then I thought I should write or make an art piece on the Muse….and here I am, reading a dissertation from 1993, which may be the best info I have found yet lol!! Anyway, if anyone out there knows a good book on muses, even a fiction/fantasy let me know!
