I do love begonias … the colors … the shapes … the varieties … the small ones … the tall ones. And an online begonia business can be yours, easier than you think. When I moved to Oregon I thought I would have to give up my cherished begonia patch. The blooms bloomed easily in California, but alas, Oregon got cold and begonias are a fair weather flower. Or so I thought. It turns out that begonias can grow almost anywhere. You just have to know how to do it, and in some climes you may need to bring...Read More

It donna matter if you are inclined to an Irish music blog, or a Swedish music blog, or a traditional Renaissance music blog. If you like music, and you know a thing or two about it, then here’s your pot o’ gold, just waitin’ for you! There’s just no denying that everyone wants to know where they are from, and once they’ve discovered the Irish in their ancestry, it’s off to learn all about Irish music and Irish culture and Irish costumes. “Everything Irish” is a pretty big topic, so I’ve narrowed it down to “Irish music”, but you...Read More
What a delight these antique children’s books are! When I researched this topic, I kept getting the feeling, “My goodness, I owned these books!” In truth, I did own many of them. My greatest treat, along with my doll collection, was a new book. That is, in fact, the first thing to know about antique children’s books. “Antique” means 19th and 20th centuries, not the 16th century. Creating books for children, especially books with pictures, was late in the printing process. The second important thing to keep in mind is that most of these books were loved dearly, and...Read More
Round up your creative gene and toss it into baby quilts! There are so many design and color options that you should stay busy for a loooooong time to come. And there is a great market for these quilts. Not only are baby quilts used many times in one home, but they are often passed down to relatives or to future generations. A well-made baby quilt will last nearly forever. There are some huuuuge advantages to committing to a baby quilt business. Just Look at the Marketing Potential: Your primary client is pretty easy to tie down: Grandparents. Parents...Read More
You don’t have to be elderly to appreciate the fact that our diets change as we age, and a diet especially for the elderly is a real blessing. Suppose, for example, that your parents or grandparents or other treasured older person had special dietary needs. Yes, their doctor could provide some guidelines, but to make those meals truly savory … ah, there’s the rub! Or you wanted to use your culinary talents to establish a meal delivery service? Or you had special dietary needs yourself? Remember, folks don’t have to be in a wheel chair before the issue of...Read More
I had a wretched time choosing an image for this puppets blog post. There are just so many inspiring, incredible ideas for puppets of all kinds, like Shadow puppets String puppets Hand puppets Finger puppets Chinese puppets Mexican puppets Indian puppets Eskimo puppets Storybook puppets Clown puppets French puppets Animal puppets Paper bag puppets Spoon puppets Bali puppets Japanese puppets Sock puppets … Well, you see my problem. The pink costumed ones above are actually string puppets created in India. Aren’t they gorgeous! There are so many kinds of puppets that creating a blog just on “puppets” may be...Read More
I actually coached someone once with a bathroom design blog. Gee, we had fun. There are so many styles to choose from, like: A bordello bath (Can-Can dancers and red/pink all over!) Sailing Poppies Balloons Lavender fields The Littlest Mermaid Rockers and rappers Cello rhapsody Pink! Picasso style Oh, my I could go on and on. Truly. If you can think of a theme or idea, there is likely a bathroom decor concept that will fit with it nicely. And for such a relatively small space, there is just so much stuff that goes into it, like: Towels Bath...Read More
Actually becoming a professional model is tough. Really tough. Teaching someone how to become a model is not so tough. That’s where you come in. A while back I recall an episode on TV where the female lead was hired to teach a group of girls how to become models. She was expecting a group of thin, savvy teens, but that isn’t what she got. What she got was a group of insecure, rather clumsy girls who had more dreams than reality. In that TV show a colleague suggested that what these girls truly needed was poise … confidence...Read More
Breakfast is nice. And so is lunch. But Brunch is a celebration! My friend Carolyn once invited 50 or so guests to a Sunday brunch pig roast, not mentioning that a wedding ceremony would precede the brunch itself. It was, without doubt, one of the most splendid weddings I’ve ever attended. Your brunch may not have a wedding hidden in it, but my guess is that it will still have loads of fun, food and laughter. Brunches are just great. They are much easier to put together than fancy dinners. There is tremendous variety for all pallets, from roast...Read More
My love affair with journaling started with a blank journal that Oprah sent me. I think it was for an online meditation series, but the journal arrived long after the meditation series was over. “Mmmmm,” I recall thinking. “Whatever shall I do with this?” It was a nice journal, much too nice for my modest thoughts, and I was much too busy to do that journaling thing-y anyhow. So it sat on my bookshelf for many months. Then one day I took it with me when I went for a walk in the woods, and my poetry life came...Read More
