Monday’s often get the short end of the stick
But they are fraught with potential!

Sharpen your creative vision, and

What’s Inspiring You This Week?
Here’s Who’s Inspiring Me…
Legend & Tsunami
Lessons I’ve Learned From My Cats
I remember the day I met Tsunami.
He was such a tiny kitten –
Too young to take home that day –
But too adorable not to fall madly in love!
And I remember the first time I saw Legend.
It was love at first sight!
This week I’m celebrating how blessed I am to have
Tsunami and Legend in my life!
I invite you to celebrate with me at
Lessons I’ve Learned From My Cats!
