Welcome to 2024! If you watch our TikTok, YouTube or Facebook, you'll probably know that we aren't selling anything from the studio just now. I'm going to be in France for the month of February and Morton is staying home. I don't want him to have to stress over sending out orders. I am digging ...

Thankful for you!

Nine years ago when we bought this old crumbling church, we could have never imagined all the adventures, love and friendships we would have along the way. Our neighbors and locals who have came in to visit us, take a workshop or shop in the studio have been such a blessing. Then, considering s...

Happy November! This season is going to fly by faster than Santa on his way to visit all the good boys and girls, so I've been helping out for all the grownups that like surprises too!  Since I'm going to be away for the month of February in France, and we are going to be in Florida for the fir...

When we left for Florida, I knew we were going to have an amazing experience because we'd be with our family & friends, but I could not have imagined all we actually did. Starting with a week in the Bahamas, courtesy of our daughter, we relaxed, connected, laughed, enjoyed and made memories ...

We are so thankful for you!

It's been less than 24 hours since we listed our 2023 Halloween Box and we're so thankful they sold out. It's an incredible feeling and now we will lovingly pack and ship all the unique arts and crafts to our customers. We also realize that not everyone could get a box and we want to acknowledge...

Accidental Influencers

I'm not sure how and when it happened, but we've become influencers. I'm also not sure what exactly that means, so I did what we all do, I googled it. Images, words and even videos came up on the subject. None of them felt like us or looked like us. We're basically influencers who aren't. When ...

My 60th birthday was on May 11 and that's the day I finally talked Morton into going into the emergency room.  It was a Thursday and we had been to urgent care on Monday, just a few days before where he was told he had bronchitis and was put on medicine to stop him throwing up. It turns out he wa...

Blooming Spring

April is almost finished and our weather has been a bit confused. Temperatures soared into the 80's while I was in Florida writing the final chapters of my book, How I Met My Morton, and it seems that instead of bringing everyone home some Florida sunshine, I brought the cold stuff. The plants a...

Whirlwind Day

This morning started early, about 4:30 am. Trip to the Orlando Airport where my daughter flew away as I drove back to her house. Then a day of writing, making a TikTok, YouTube and celebrating the blue checks we got on our Instagram & Facebook accounts! Then, just to make sure it was a really...

Write what you know!

Wise words, said by someone clever, when asked about what a person should write about. Sounds simple. We know it, we lived it, we write it. But as I sit here in Florida on my self-created writers retreat, I'm seeing the difference between writing fiction, descriptions, copy and things like this b...

Our two-week trip to Florida was fantastic. Better than fantastic. We made new friends, visited with old friends, spent pure quality time with family, celebrated our 20th anniversary, celebrated Morton's 56th birthday, got to visit a childhood dream of mine, Sunken Gardens and the weather was abs...

Happy birthday to my Morton!

Today is Morton's birthday. We're celebrating so many wonderful things that are happening in our lives right now and are both so grateful. We're currently with our daughter and her family in Florida, and more precisely, Morton is in bed having a nap after a morning brunch out with the family on...

Florida with Family

The last time we went to Florida I took along half the studio so I could keep sending orders out, our son church sat and it was definitely a working vacation that we even got caught in a hurricane in. That was last September. Here we are in February 2023 and so many things have changed. Our son ...

Florida February 2023

One this last day of January 2023 we woke up to snow. It wasn't a lot, maybe half an inch or so. Pretty to look at, cold to touch. Thankfully only a trip to the post office to send orders off to lovely customers and no shoveling or plowing was needed. Since our son has moved in and is turning th...

52 Windows in 2023

Love, love, love

I know, it's still January. I know, I like to live in the moment and not rush time by. But being an artist, crafter, creator and after being asked so many times on our lives and videos, I've just put together a Valentine's Box. They're up for a limited time, until they sell out, on our shop. Tha...
