Reach For The Stars

We all have something that we dream of.  Perhaps it is something that we want to do, or maybe it is something that we want to have.  For some, perhaps it is someplace you want to go, or maybe it is somebody that you want to be with.  Regardless of what it is, we all have a dream. There are some people actually living their dream, however most are still […]

Birdie Village

One of the first collections I created as a designer was my Birdie Village Collection.  I remember the fun I had creating this whimsical collection of birdhouses.  It seemed like with each individual birdhouse I created I got more and more excited. Creating the layout for the products was a great learning experience for me.  I created products using the houses all together as a cluster and I then I […]

What Are You Waiting For?

Have you ever had something that you wanted to do, but the time just never seemed to be quite right?  You seemed to find one excuse after another for not doing this thing that you really wanted to do. If there is something that you are thinking about doing, then the time is right to do it.  If it wasn’t the right time for you to do it, you wouldn’t […]

Your Beautiful Truth

What is the truth about you?  What is the REAL truth about you?  Granted you have many people around you who think they know who you are and what you are all about.  However, they are probably wrong!  People all have their “perception” of who they think you are and often times they expound their perception on you and all too often – to you.  None of these people really […]

Be The Star

It seems like every day I am starting a new journey.  Actually it is the same journey, but when at the end of the day I feel like I have failed the day before and so I start over again.  Every day I try to figure out a way that I can push myself just a little bit harder to push myself just a little bit higher. I know what […]

Always Follow Your Heart

Everybody in this world has an idea of what they think you should do.  Their opinions will range on topics from what your career should be, to who you should date or marry, to what you should be wearing.  More often than not, they are shocked, confused and sometimes their feelings are really hurt because you don’t do what they think you should do. Nobody knows what you should do […]

I have many hopes and dreams and goals that I am working toward.  Granted it feels like I am just doing the same things over and over.  I believe that I heard that the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.  Well according to that definition, I guess that some days I must be insane. This year I am making a […]

Live In The Moment

I know a man where almost every sentence he says starts out with “remember when…”.  He always talks about the past.  It always seemed odd to me that he never talked about anything past the 1970’s. One day Tim and I were talking about that and we realized that the reason he never talked about anything past the 1970’s is because he had not made any new memories worth remembering.  […]

Don’t Be Afraid

How many people do you know that are so use to their normal routine and way of thinking, that if you suggest something new they look like they are about to explode with confusion. Perhaps that person is you!  I once heard that if you want to feel young, do something that you have never done before.  This is so true!  Next time somebody suggest you try something different, instead […]
