Looking at things differently (Happy Fall!)

Labor Day is over, so is it officially the beginning of Fall? Happy Fall everyone. I love this time of year.

It’s so beautiful outside at this time of year, and walks become adventures. What do you see around you? Can you find something new in things you see everyday?

This is what I found today.

When you’re a mom of toddlers (survival tip)

Little kiddies running around can bring you a lot of joy. And messes to clean up. And time sucking chores (like laundry). And noise…

I love my kids with all my heart, but sometimes I need to regroup. So I find my quiet, my place of refuge and meditation. It doesn’t have to be fancy or complicated. For me? It’s organizing bookshelves. It brings me back to serenity.

What about you? How do you find your peace in chaos?

Even in their noisiest, they find a way to inspire me. Go figure.

Greeting cards

I love snail mail. Really. There’s just something so much more exciting about getting real mail, a real card, something tangible that I can hold in my hands (and that’s not junk or bills) in the mail. If they’re fun or different, even better. It’s with this in mind that I decided to make some of my animals into greeting cards.

One of my favorite collections of postcards came from the work of Yoshitomo Nara. I love them so much, I have trouble sending them to people. That defeats the purpose of postcards though, so once in a while if I really miss you, you’ll get one from me.

Do you send postcards? Do you have some favorites?
