Thank you! And introducing…

Thank you, Friends, for your patience as I have been transitioning to my new website. We’re off to a humble start together.


I hope to some day find a good way to make purchasing my digital images easy from the new site. If someone has a suggestion on that, I’d welcome it! 🙂

For now, I do have a “shop” that’s somewhat entertaining. I’ll keep plugging away at putting images out there. If there’s one you’d like to see as a yoga mat, greeting card, etc, drop me a line! 🙂

This old site, by the way, will remain. It’s still a place I go for inspiration by topic.

Hope you’ll consider subscribing at My plan is to blog ~weekly from there. We’ll see how that goes… the first post will come out tomorrow.

Creative Blessings!

taking a little break

Dear Friends,

I’m currently nursing tendonitis in my right hand and so it will be helpful for me to take a little break from blogging. I’ll see you on the flip side of healing. 🙂

In the mean time, there are 816 archived images that can be searched on by theme, by category, by month/year, if that would be desirable.

Resurrection Blessings!


love endures all things

I’m heading to Milwaukee today to be the Artist in Residence for the Greater Milwaukee Synod’s Theological Conference, Sept. 19-21. Pastors and church leaders will be working through material based on Brené Brown’s “Daring Greatly” book, an experience that will be facilitated by Rev. Sarah Ciavarri. I’ll be journaling images and beginning each session with a 10-minute centering reflection with an image. Theoretically, it sounds great… hoping it works in practice, too!

I’m reminded of some journaling images that were created (but never shared) the last time I was in Milwaukee with a new friend, Heather. Heather wrote a lovely book on retreats and one of the chapters was about a birch tree. You’ll be seeing birch trees over the next couple days as I get settled in Milwaukee.


Create-A-Day: your daily dose of creativity #244 — More Advent Resources!

I’m tickled to reblog this post from my friend, Jody, linking to LEAD’s Advent resources… tickled and grateful and humbled, all at the same time. How does the heart hold so many emotions? Anyway, it’s my first time to give this reblog thing a spin, so I’m curious as to how it will look. Here we go…
