Creating Brightness

New Things are Coming Here!

Feeling deep appreciation for all the people who are contributing to my experience of 2018 being a buzz of excitement and positive change.  Thank you to each reader, writer, and friend who have lent an ear, posted their words, given feedback and comments of encouragement here.  Keep them coming and please, spread the word!  

During the first week of March a second group of women with goals will join The Future is Female, (the new daily, collaborative column happening right here) amping up posts to twice daily! In addition there will be weekly green-home renovation posts, business features, book recommendations and beautiful advertisements linking like-minded businesses to our midst.

There are opportunities to be a part of it all.  If you’re female, have goals, transitions, or conundrums to process and interested in writing for The Future is Female, please send an email with The Future is Female in the subject line explaining why you would like to participate.  Attach at least two horizontally formatted images that pertain to your written word sized 1000x750px.  A group of women will be chosen to write a weekly post of 300+/- words with at least two beautiful, horizontally formatted images, around a common theme for 6 weeks.   The work should nourish the writer and help lead them along their chosen path.

In the meantime, Love Shine Heart Garlands and Love Shine Heart Garland Kits are a huge success!  There are a handful left just in time for Valentine's Day ~  Get your creative on and order yours before they sell out!

More kits are coming - Pocket Skirts, Bucket Bags, Pincushion Jars, oh and little decorative Mother's Day Pillow Sachets.  The crafty ones among us should take a look at the new tools and notions in my shop.  Pincushion Jars are first - and there is more - WAIT til you see the handmade scissors from England scheduled for late March arrival.

A big part of my drive is to simplify and downsize, which is hard when you have a 12,000sq ft church as your making space! The big BEAUTIFUL church is for sale and I'm selling a few, well cared for, but unneeded industrial sewing machines.  The church is listed here.  The industrial sewing machines are on Craig's List with more being added.

There is a thick layer of ice covering my world deepening my wool sock appreciation and reminding me of the power of nature.  Universal Intelligence is my guide these days and I am super happy about that.  Here’s to creating a bright future!
