do fairies come to wish me goodnight."

Welcome to a New Year!

You can make your own 2007 calendar here...


Get on your creative groove and have fun!


Often people attempt to live their lives backwards: They try to have more things, or more money, in order to have more of what they want so that they will be happier. The way it actually works is the reverse. You must first be who you are, then do what you need to do, in order to get what you want.
~ Margaret Young


Hello and hello!

It's a new year, full of possibilities. What do you have planned? Anything new on your horizon?

My new bit of piffle is to learn how to make home movies. If you are curious as to what I look and sound like (I think I look like the Queen of the Kewpies) or just want to see how to turn a square piece of paper into a secret Valentine click on the YouTube logo below. And applause for my extremely patient Wonderhusband for being my dialog coach, cameraman, director and tech support.

I wish you all good things in every new endeavor you take on this year!

Best thoughts,


"O terque quaterque beatum”
We are three or four times blessed.


"If one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he had imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours."
~ Henry David Thoreau




Presenting my first ever, rather goofy YouTube Video! Showing how to make the World's Fastest Secret Valentine!


Let me know what you think here....


"Don't be afraid to attempt something new.
Remember, it was amateurs who built the ark.
It was professionals who built the Titanic."
