After a month of no new posts and only checking in more or less once a week on comments and social media sites, I am so excited to get back to blogging and to be more intentional about my time online and on my phone. I have a post I’ve been waiting months to share that will go live later this week, so keep an eye out, but in the meantime I’m ready to recap a bit of last month and talk about some new goals and focuses for this month: Continue reading
I want to start this post by writing about a little story I’ve been sharing amongst some of my mom friends. It’s a story about what’s been happening when we bring our kids to church- particularly about what happened this past weekend at my daughter’s baptism and at mass the day after. And while it was a beautiful weekend for my daughter, these stories focus on my son… Continue reading
After finishing up Macbeth earlier this year, and having a lot of health problems that kept me home once I got pregnant, I was worried my creative outlets might dry up. But where God closes a door he truly opens a window… or perhaps several! So it seems fitting to wrap up this year with a very handmade christmas! Continue reading
While I have always loved crafting as a relaxing activity, a means of keeping my hands busy and getting into my body and out of living completely in my head, it has recently become something more than that. Continue reading
Creating theatre is one of the things that makes me happiest in the world. There are some shows that stick with you for a long long time, whatever capacity you were involved with them. Creating crafts and gifts for others has become an excellent way to have a creative outlet when I’m not working on a large production. Continue reading
I wanted to keep up with my pledge of being more regular with my blogging so here’s a quick post on a super easy creative project that happened this week. Continue reading
I have to admit a social faux pas that I am guilty of on a regular basis- I frequently forget to send cards on special occasions. I mean, unless we are talking Christmas cards then odds are good I don’t even have stamps on hand because we pay all our bills online now. I can’t tell you how many times I know I’ve disappointed people because I am just really bad at this social gesture of kindness and thoughtfulness but two things have started to help me rehab myself out of card negligence.

It’s no secret that I’m a Shakespeare devotee and this has been going around Facebook among my fellow Shakespearean practitioners so I thought I’d torture myself by trying to pick favorites even though it is kind of impossible to do so. Ask me again next week and many of these answers will change… Continue reading
So today’s blog post is a bit of a cheat because it’s where I send you all over to look at the blog post on Class6’s blog about my history with the company and a bit about our production of Macbeth. Before I add the link I wanted to briefly add that it has been so good for me to jump in as an actor again on a full length production (Lunch Time Theater shows have been lovely and Miscast was a blast but those are so different than a full rehearsal process for a full length play!) This is not a traditional Macbeth and each person in the 7 person ensemble is integral in creating the world of the play within the conceptual world of the asylum. I hope anyone in the Phoenix area will decide to spend 90ish minutes with us and check it out but be aware it is Macbeth which means Shakespearean tragedy which means some dark themes and this production does not shy away from some disturbing moments.
Without further ado, here’s the link to check out aforementioned blog post:
PS: odds of another post before we open are slim… very VERY slim.
Valentine’s day is less than a month away, and if you are trying to brainstorm something unique and fun for a loved one (romantic or otherwise) I have a fun, easy craft to share today! Continue reading
