Make Your Art

Yes you. Do that thing you enjoy making. Even if _____________ (insert fave excuse here). Because, you never know who, what, where, when and how it will impact someone. And that someone could be YOU! Once upon a time, I had the point of view that I couldn't create because someone else already probably made it.  I was also guilty of waiting to create before it was really great to [...]

Thunder Bay KOA – Being Unstoppable Looks Different Sometimes

One night. Great dog park. So happy to leave the next morning & proud that we got ready with such prowess.

Others hate the middle of a creation, [...]
