My lovely sister-in-law organized a Gingerbread Man Decorating Contest
at our Thanksgiving celebration yesterday!
So much fun! Here's Evan's (left) and mine (right)
A friend recently asked me if I'd read Ann Voskamp's book "1000 Gifts". She said it wad a great blessing to her during a difficult time in her life. I went to Ann's website and came across this page with the video below.

This is Wanda B. Goines. At the time this video was filmed she was 92 years old.
She calls this poem “The Gift Wrap & The Jewel“. The words are printed below.
I enjoy watching baking competitions on TV and was inspired to try something a little over-the-top for Evan's birthday cake this year-- a four-layer, supposed-to-be-'pumpkin'-shaped chocolate cake with orange-colored peanut butter frosting. Each layer had chocolate frosting and chopped up Reece's cups in the middle, and as you can see-- the whole thing is covered in fall sprinkles and peanut M-n-Ms. Pheww! Yeah, it's a little rich... While it's no showpiece, Evan liked it and it was fun to make!
Thank you for landing on my blog! It’s an honor to have some of your time. This a collection of photos, art, poems, and other stuff on my creative life journey. I’m thankful to have this visual diary, and if it blesses YOU, that’s even better!
I’d love to hear from you.
