Celebrating Creative People

My sister, inspired me to create for the love of creation, and this post celebrates people (both well-known and not) who did just that!

A New Reboot

Wondering how to keep the family busy during the COVID-19 Quarantine? Here are some fun ideas that may spark yours and are guaranteed to keep your little ones occupied.

A Long Line of Sub-par Theatrical Productions

Yes, that’s my children’s legacy! As my cousin once said, this is one in “a long line of sub-par theatrical productions”. We did plays, my mother’s family did in-home musical concerts, and I’m sure way back, there were theatrical productions by the pioneer players!… Continue Reading “A Long Line of Sub-par Theatrical Productions”

School Projects – we rock!

Shared Human Experience Reflected in Art

This has been quite an amazing year for me. My father passed away on November 24, 2012 and my daughter was born on October 15, 2013.  When Dad passed two days after Thanksgiving last year, I could have never guessed that less than a year later I… Continue Reading “Shared Human Experience Reflected in Art”

Non-Pumpkin Halloween Fun

I wanted to do a fun Halloween family activity, and so I decided to be creative with what we had at home. My husband is out of work, and we literally have no extra money. I wish that were a joke. I know how… Continue Reading “Non-Pumpkin Halloween Fun”

Childhood Creativity Leads to Education

I just read a series of reports on an eight-year-old, Stella Ehrhart,  from Omaha, Nebraska who dresses up for school everyday as a different historical female figure or other character.  According to several articles, she said that she wants to dress up as people… Continue Reading “Childhood Creativity Leads to Education”
