Okay, I could not miss the chance to post a crazy picture from my visit to the Iowa State Fair in August. I remember sketching pumpkins in art school but this honey is just a wee bit bigger. I don’t think I have a sketch pad big enough to draw this baby!  Now for what you can cheer from your …

Last week I met someone at yoga class who was downright perky about resolutions. She has been making them and posting them on her refrigerator since she …

What’s the question that needs to be asked? So here is a card that sits on my desk.

Back to the drawing board. I was all excited to complete a few more flying cornstalks and get them outdoors to test the bases that go in the ground. Then… Iowa gets a day with high winds of 30+mph and this is what happened – flattened cornstalks. The top weight with the wings was enough that the wind bent my …
