- A weekly chalkboard quote that hangs in my kitchen.
- A view of my creative musings for the week, A Clever Mind, (could be a shot of my desk, a page from one of my many sketchbooks, or some random post or picture I find that needs to be shared.)
- Just Around the Corner, fun and interesting places I visit now that I can walk or ride my bike everywhere.
- A kind of ongoing "memoir" of sorts called The Flip-Flop Diaries; my life's crazy stories, all told through my skewed, rose-colored view of course.
- A weekly DIY project because what would life be if I wasn't doing it myself!!
- Of course A link to my online store, A Clever Spark and a link to the artist co-op Sea & Green.
