Looking back at older art can be so revealing.I was at my brother and sister-in-law’s house the other day and came across a painting I had done for them a year or two prior. It is a winter scene of their back/side yard when they first moved into their house. Back then, a little barn […]
She’s Going Book Crazy is now Foals, Fiction & Filigree! Blog migration notice.
I’m back! Well, sort of… It has been quite a while, let me tell you. I’ve been pretty much on a complete hiatus from the book community since the end of May. While I really missed this community, the hiatus was totally worth it. I was able to spend a lot of quality time with my now […]
(Retrospective post from September 16, 2018) See the previous post to this: A Little Bit More… It’s finally the day that Chase and Kat get to come to their new home! I can’t lie that I have been a little nervous for this day. Chase has made a tremendous improvement in all aspects that I’ve worked with her […]

Well long time, no see everyone! It really has been a long while. Today I have Anthony here from Keep Reading Forward with a fun little discussion. Before we get into it, let me ask you: what is your favorite element of a story? Let’s see what Anthony has to say! People usually ask, “What’s your favorite […]
Tonight I had every intention of working Chase on the trailer. However, by the time I got out there, it was already getting dark. I was there alone at the time and didn’t quite feel comfortable trailering by myself seeing how it was dusk. It turned out to be fine. I got a chance to […]
This was my first encounter with Chase and explains about her background and sad experience to make her into the “lost cause” other people were deeming her to be.
Have you ever thought about how much fear can penetrate your life? How it can drive you to react before putting thought into what you are actually doing? Fear is a powerful emotion. Yet, fear can be overcome. It takes a lot of practice, thought, and faith. Today was trailering day number three. It’s been […]
