Celebrating my patron saint!

One of my goals last month was to create a liturgical calendar for the first part of the year which included not only the usual seasons of Lent and Easter that we always celebrate, but also which Saints’ Days we would celebrate because they have special meaning to us. One of the first of those we got a chance to celebrate was my saint I chose at confirmation- St. Brigid. Continue reading

Another E for 2018

I’m continuing my series of posts revealing what I’ll be focusing on in this blog for 2018. The year of Es already includes Entertaining and Exploring and Endure.

C is for Consistency

Consistent is a word that many artists seem to have a love/hate relationship with. I think we’d love more consistency with our budgets, creativity, maybe even our schedules. I think it’s scary because consistent can seem like a euphemism for boring, stagnant, or done by rote. I’m writing this post to tell you that it doesn’t have to be. Continue reading
