Below is my SCBWI membership card.  I am so excited to be a member of the Society of Children's Book Writers & Illustrators Association.  Great organization for children writers. I am thankful for the mention in their magazine as a new member.  Hope to learn many things through this organization on my road to publication. 

Finished Book One in my Friendship Series and have started my out line for Book Two.  The characters below are my inspiration for the second book. 
I have these sitting in my window sill at home.
I am blessed that I have the opportunity to work on things
 that I have an interest in. 
Thank you Lord for your goodness.

Picture Day

Here are a few pictures I found on the web that I like. Enjoy.

I had hair this long at one point in my life.  I miss it.  Should I do it again? 

Cool desk.

Where Oh Where Have I Been.....

I know I have been missing in action.  I have been soooo busy with personal things such as I went full-time at work (and let me tell you I work, work, work) and I am taking classes for work to get my FPC Payroll Certification.  I also joined Weight Watchers because I want to feel better (eating healthier sometimes feels like a job) and I am trying to publish a children's picture book I wrote.

So I need to take a breath as you probably do to.  I am sure none of my daily activities is any less busier than yours.  I did buy the following book by Jan Silvious (Christian Writer) to hopefully get insight to put my busy life and the way I have been feeling lately into perspective.

Book is available at

My smiles...........................


Happy 4th and Cheers to our Independence!

Let me know how your doing!

No words....

I can't think right now because my mind is consumed with hubby's pacemaker upgrade surgery Tuesday.  He has had alot of trouble since last June so they are gonna add another lead wire to another part of his heart.  Prayers are welcomed.

So, I am just gonna post these pictures I like so that
you will know I am still around.

We are optimistic that this will work this time.

and always feel so much better about things.

Be back a little later.
