Our barn was SO very happy this weekend! We finally hosted an event–my sister & singer songwriter Christa Wells had an all day writer’s circle gathering along with 42 lovely women. Here are a few of them.

Our next event is Hope*ologie Live on November 15th, tickets are sold out.

We’ll continue to add more gatherings, I’m putting together a crafty day and as soon as I have that planned I’ll let you know!



31 days!

Can you believe that Wednesday is October 1st?!

That means it’s time for the 6th annual 31 Days Writing Challenge and it’s not too late to join in. This year 31 Days has its own website. Be sure to sign up here (look for a special email from us tomorrow evening or Wednesday morning with last-minute details). We also have a facebook group if you want to hang out and ask questions or get feedback on your buttons.

Want to join in but you aren’t sure what you’ll write about or how you’ll write for 31 days straight? This year Kate (the new host of Five Minute Fridays) has organized 31 Days worth of writing prompts, the challenge is to join in 31 days, but then using the writing prompts, write for just 5 minutes every day.
