Sale at My Place...Stop on By!

This Friday and Saturday, I am hosting a garage sale to raise money for the American Diabetes Association. I will also have The Crazy Elephant and Michelle Morgan Original Art present and 10% of those sales will still go toward our ADA fundraising. If you are in the Stewartville, MN area on those days, you will find us on hwy 30 near St. John's and we will be open from (roughly) 8am - 5pm both days. In the meantime, check out the picks for a small sampling of what we will have. 10% of our online purchases are still going toward our ADA fundraising through the 14th so there is still time to make an order. Also you can make a tax deductible donation on their site here,

Learning the Uke

The Cat Returns is one of my favorite animated films. The end song, Kaze Ni Naru, is one of my favorite parts and gave me the longing to play the ukulele. I found just the uke for me here in Montreal. It is part musical instrument and part souvenir of Quebec. I am not terribly good at it yet, but I am starting to get this song down. Once I have it figured out, I will either attempt to learn the words so I can sing along, or move on to another great song. In the meantime, here is a great cover of the song by someone who has been playing a lot longer than I have.

Cats in Paris: a Book Review

In Montreal adult coloring books are everywhere. When we came back to the states a couple of months ago I found they were popular here too. I really enjoy them and am very particular about what I pick. I like a lot of fine details mixed with whimsy.

Cats in Paris by Won-Sun Jang is simply beautiful. It begins with a sort of tour of Paris, with cats of course. There is a bit of narrative in this portion as well. The art is beautiful but not quite the page covering design work I personally love. The rest of the book makes up for it though. There are patterns and intri'cat' designs. The artwork throughout is beautifully done and a joy to fill in. I am so happy to be able to while away my quiet moments with this book.

Have you seen this video by Louie Giglio yet? It is really amazing to see how the universe proclaims God's glory. Take some time to watch it. God really is indescribable.
