Spring has sprung!

Spring has sprung!

I was out walking around the other day and I came across a yard full of these gorgeous crocuses. I know the calendar is telling us that spring is here, but I for one don’t believe it until I see the crocuses so I was overjoyed to see these purple pretties! Now, let’s hope we … read more

African Violet

African Violet

I can’t get behind Pantone’s Color of the Year at all this year. I do like their Spring 2013 Fashion Color Report though and especially the color African Violet. I am a long time lover of all kinds of purple, even if I don’t wear it all that often. African Violet can can come of … read more

Got Seeds?

Got Seeds?

It’s time to get your garden seedlings going. It might be a little late for some things and a little early for others, but it’s definitively the time to get planning. This year I plan on getting my seeds from Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds. Their seeds are heirloom and are non-hybrid, non-GMO, non-treated and non-patented! … read more

Here comes the sun!

Here comes the sun!

After a long hard fall/winter for many of us (Hurricane Sandy, anyone?), this Sunday will mark a return back to Daylight Savings Time! Yay! Personally, I don’t know why we ever go back to regular time–Daylight Savings Time is all right in my book. Small at first, those extra precious daylight hours will mean so … read more

Indie Quilts

Years ago I posted about Indie Quilters for a reader who was looking to purchase a quilt. I wasn’t able to find that many quilters selling their wares online….but it was 2007. Things have changed in the 6 years since then and now everyone is selling homemade goods online! I recently came across Folk Fibers, … read more

Productivity Tools for Freelancers…and the rest of you too!

In addition to blogging at Indie Fixx I am also a freelance writer. And being a freelancer means that I have a really big need to stay organized and do not have a huge budget to waste on productivity suites and the like. That’s not a problem for me though. There are are so many … read more

Indie Cats!

Indie Cats!

If you have read this blog for a while, you know I love cats. I’m not quite into crazy cat lady territory (I only have 2), but I have been know to talk to my cats, take pictures of them like they are human children and to get totally sidetracked when walking into a room … read more

Hemp: the wonderful world of plant protein

Hemp: the wonderful world of plant protein

Lately the mister and I have have been making changes to our diet. We already try to be conscious eaters–I’ve been a vegetarian since I was 13-years-old–but there is always room for improvement.  One of the changes we’ve made is to cut down on the amount of carbohydrates we eat. I know it seems like … read more

Now Playing: And God Created Woman

Now Playing: And God Created Woman

I recently finished a freelance writing assignment about Brigitte Bardot. In writing about her, I realized I had never actually seen any of her films, so I decided to watch And God Created Woman. This wasn’t her first film, but it was probably the one that rocketed her to fame and cemented her reputation as … read more
