So I bought a few Harley Quinn charms last year but didn't do anything with them...until now. Behold! My Harley Quinn bracelet: I love plants and trees and the color green, so I thought I'd make some Poison Ivy bracelets--and a (mis)matching set of earrings, too. Ron said "Oh. It's...

I think those of us raised in the 70s and before are flabbergasted at not only the ubiquitous "face in the phone" syndrome--but also, the lack of basic knowledge and life skills among Millenials. (I agree. I think most people under 30 would be up Shit Creek if there were an electronics blackout!) And then there's those measuring self-worth via "likes", retweets, "hearts" or "favorites"... (Ron told me I need to see "Nosedive" as a part of the Black Mirror series on Netflix). In my AMZN cart, I have a book called The Shallows: What the Internet is doing to our brains. It looks great! https://amzn.to/2V07NTL I started reading Reader, Come Home--but it's really boring. Maybe I'll give it another try. In any event. I can really FEEL the freed-up energy by keeping my focus on this blog and our Etsy store! I wish I would have done it sooner it was a long time coming. :o) Thanks so much for stopping by and sharing your thoughts! -- Janet

For the last month or so, I've been on a serious Genesis kick. They're often playing on our Smart TV or via one of our Amazon Echos or Dots. "Man on the Corner" by Genesis has been one of my absolutely favorite songs for over 30 years (!). It's one... Continue reading

Keep Going: 10 Ways to Stay Creative in Good Times and Bad, Austin Kleon's newest book, arrived yesterday. As with his first book, Steal Like an Artist, it's fab. I'm only on the third chapter, but it's already a balm for the soul and a boost to the creative mind.... Continue reading

On Wednesday, April 10th, 2019, the groundbreaking, first-ever photograph of a black hole was published around the world. Captivating viewers and providing the only direct visual evidence that these regions exist, this Black Hole was officially named Powehi, a Hawaiian phrase that means "embellished dark source of unending creation." (The... Continue reading

“Life purpose is a choice rather than an experience. It’s something we decide about life.” – Dr. Eric Maisel Just coming off the Christmas/Yule holiday, many have watched the perennial favorite It’s a Wonderful Life. (Were you among them? I admit I’ve never watched it all the way through. I... Continue reading

Sure...it seems cool to have a self-published deck come out that features celebrities--our favorite actors, singers, artists or musicians. Or even characters from a comic book series, novel, video game or movie. Noticed I said self-published. That's because traditional publishers aren't stupid enough to violate a famous person's Right of... Continue reading

Hi and thanks for stopping by! I have the Book of Poisons from that series, but not yours. Must remedy that! 😉

Last night, I had to get a broken tooth repaired. The numbing shot was the worst, as it usually is (unless you're getting a root canal...). I sat in the seat for 20-25 minutes, waiting for my mouth to go numb so my awesome dentist could do his thing. I... Continue reading

I am ABSOLUTELY promoting "Jenny King silly", Dan! HAHAHA! I totally agree. Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope to see you again. ;o)
Thanks so much for your help, Pye! I've made the corrections. :o)

HAHAHA! Love you, Jennifer! XO Yeah, it's so easy to evaluate what we're doing in terms of "where we're going"--as if a specific destination even MATTERS. We're conditioned to think in terms of goals and end results...often onto the "road of success". Me? I'm just enjoying the journey...and I suspect you are, too! ;o)

Wow, what a coincidence, Anne! O_o I'm absolutely enjoying what I'm doing, that's for sure. Last night, I made THREE pendulums! If I may be nosy: what happened with making jewelry and minis? Did the interest wane--and the desire to write kick in again?

Alice in Wonderland--and all of Charles Lutwidge Dodgson's (aka Lewis Carroll) works, really--are fully of whimsical, delightful wordplay. I'm making jewelry these days (will need to write a prequel post about that), and was looking for some Edgar Allan Poe-related cabochons. Stumbled upon some Alice stuff and...fell down a rabbit...

Hi Tammy! Long nails + massage = ouch! ;o) Normally, my nails are shorter--but a few times a year, I let them grow out. This happens to be the longest they've all EVER been. But, honestly, except for looking nice--and they would've been cool, had I tricked them out for my book signing!--long nails are inconvenient and impractical on all levels.

OMG, this 5-Star Amazon.com Review of my Naked Tarot is hilarious! I'm so grateful to those who take time to review my work. :o) Don't have my new book yet? You can get it everywhere, including the 'zon, at this link. (Kindle version coming September 28th, 2018). -- Janet Continue reading

Joseph Campbell's famous quote is You must give up the life you planned in order to have the life that is waiting for you. Well, last night, I had to give up the nails I had planned--pretty long nails that I wanted to display during my Barnes & Noble book... Continue reading

That's so sweet of you, Tammy! Thank you. :o) It's a really odd place to be. Most times I feel...nothing. Which is weird. Nothing isn't a negative state--it's just I'm so used to feeling passionate about something...or, at the very least, interested. I'm enjoying making jewelry and things with vintage buttons, for sure. I'm happy and content as a wife and mother. But for the first time in a long time (or ever?) I don't feel a "call" to do something. It's an interesting state to be in, for sure! I appreciate that you're along the journey with me--and with tissues! ;o)
