It's Official!

In case just seeing my book, Isotope, available at Amazon and Barnes and Noble wasn't enough, I now have further proof that I am an author (even though I get published multiple times a month at Odyssey).  The other day I was in the library, and the librarian greeted me as I walked in.  She said, "Guess what I'm cataloging into the computer system?"  And she held up not one copy, but two of my books! She also said that after it has time to circulate for a while she'll probably have a reading.

Oh my.

Anywhere, here is the head librarian Terry, putting my book into the system.

I'm still excited, and still doing the goodie goodie dance here.

Special Announcement!

As promised, here is the special announcement I alluded to in my last post.


*Clears Throat*

I am VERY excited to announce the release of my book Isotope .  It is available through Amazon, or use the link below.

This book has been in the works for four years.  I've been fiddling around with it off and on, and finally got the process rolling on publishing last fall.  I've kept this a secret from my family, except my husband of course, and planned it as a fun surprise.

I hope you will enjoy it!

Quilts and Cake

Over the last few months there have been occasions to enjoy some crafting.  One of my nephews and his wife had their first baby.  What a cutie she is!  Of course a baby quilt was in order.  I made it bigger than a traditional baby quilt so that she could enjoy it through her toddler years at least.  Plus, I just kind of got carried away making the disappearing pinwheels.  They were lots of fun.  I used this tutorial by Jenny Doan from the Missouri Star Quilt Co.

This next quilt went to a family who had their first baby.   

Back and tag 

Of course I had to include the book with the gift!

This is a flimsy from 2015 Mystery Quilt through Merry Mayhem.  I need to piece the back, sandwich, quilt, and bind it off.  So, still a little ways to go on it.

In the beginning of March, Caleb and Josiah went to a Teen Leadership Retreat.  I made this cake for the event. Dale had the opportunity to speak in one of the "Break Out" sessions. 

I love living in the country!  Being treated to gorgeous sunrises and sunsets are something I hope I never take for granted. Our old, cheap, camera doesn't do it justice. It also doesn't do moon shots.  I've tried and failed on every setting the camera has.   

Have a great day!

Once again I am embarrassed to realize how long it has been since my last post!  I apologize for the LONG delay in getting back on here.  I have no real reason other than life has been very full and busy.  I am still engaged in online classes through SNHU.  I am in my third year, which means the work load has been ramped up.  I am still homeschooling, and we just got through a fine arts competition through our church.  I've also done a special cake for a Teen Retreat, and made two quilts for some new babies of friends and family.

Tonight, just to dip my toes back into blogging, I'm sharing a link for my latest article on Odyssey.  Yes, I'm still writing for school's online publication.  I've been promoted from Content Creator to Contributing Editor.  I've been learning the ropes for my new position, and still writing, meeting the deadlines.

I do have some plans here coming up, so stayed tune. I'll be updating on homeschooling, family outings, and projects.

Without further ado, here is the link to my newest article.  Please enjoy!
