I've been tinkering with a website for quite some time now. My Etsy site has been successful, however, I wanted to reach a larger audience. Well, I FINALLY finished my new site http://www.perkyprose.com/! I still need to work on getting better pictures taken, but I like the way it turned... Continue reading

These folders used to be listed within my Perky Prose shop, but I thought it best to separate them from the multitude of journals they were listed with.

I’ve had folks ask me how they can help protect and conserve our marine environment and its creatures in a hands-on kind of way. I know that a lot of people would rather physically help out a cause and donate their time and effort rather than their money. It’s weird... Continue reading

Mini journals are my latest obsession. There's just something so great about a little item you can fit in your pocket while you're on the go. Sometimes, I get strange and wonderful (and random) ideas while I'm traveling about during the day. It's nice to be able to whip one... Continue reading

Many folks have heard that there's a great trash heap in the Pacific Ocean. If you try to find a picture that proves the existence of the great trash heap, you can't find one. Why? Welp, this giant accumulation of trash is made up of a great deal of plastic... Continue reading
