Lovely banner created by the talented Nicole of Kitten Lane

Well, hi everybody.  :)  After such a "deep" post yesterday and with so much encouragement and love being sent my way through your comments, I'm left a little speechless today.  I can't thank each of you enough for your loving words ... they meant the world to me.  xoxo  Thanks again .... so much!!!

I wanted to share something with you that I've been ever-so-slowly working on.  By telling you about it, I thought it might give me the kick in the pants I need to get going on it!  It's an online creativity workshop for children and their parents, called TWINKLE.  I've just started planning it so it probably won't be available for a few months, but I'm really excited about it!

I chose the name TWINKLE for two reasons.  First of all, I want to offer it free of charge to children going through difficult situations and I want to encourage them to look for the stars in their dark skies.  There's always beauty to discover in any circumstance and creativity is an avenue to do just that.  The second reason is to inspire kids to develop their creativity, to become their best selves, to  make a difference in their little corner of the world ... to basically TWINKLE, sparkle, and shine.  Oh, and if you're an artist or children's writer and would like to contribute in some way, please contact me at

More info to come!!  xo
