Three Things Challenge: shotgun, cloud, wind

Life for me 

If I were to ride shotgun 
on a trip down to the south 
I’d like to bring my music 
And food to fill my mouth. 
I’d watch the world around me  
and hope to see the most 
like clouds and trees and other things, 
about my trip I’d boast.  
I’d talk to all my people 
about all that I have seen 
and hope that they can understand 
exactly what I mean.  
I’d go back home once again 
to lead my normal life. 
I’d remember all my memories 
of being a mom and wife.  
I’d go ahead to live my now 
because it’s what I love. 
The wind, the trees, the sunshine, 
I thank my God above.

FOWC with Fandango: creative

I typically write a poem with the word, sometimes a fictional story. Today I am going to share my new hobby, constructing miniature kits. What are those you ask? Well, they are little rooms, buildings, scenes, etc. where everything is scaled down, about 1:27, so things are tiny! My first one was a coffee shop.

So yes, it is creative!

I then completed tiny scenes that come in these little tin cases, almost like what Altoids come in.

Once I was done with these, which I enjoyed making but not as much, I completed a Christmas Eve room. The reason I didn’t enjoy making the little tins as much is because everything is so, so small, you almost can’t enjoy it. Where does this obsession come from? I love mini things. Almost anyone who knows me knows that I adore tiny, mini renditions of real items.

So…continuing with being creative, Lindsay, my daughter, bought me a new kit, a greenhouse, for Christmas. I have been working on it for a few days. Here are some preliminary pictures of some of the items I have made.

So, thank you Fandango for the word.
I hope you have enjoyed seeing the kits completed. Perhaps you are motivated to try one? Contact me for pointers, I have learned a few tricks and tips that make things work a bit better.

A Name A Day: Dorothy

Feel free to participate in A Name A Day. Write a story, poem, or something about a real individual you know with the name of the day. If you have a name that you would like for the blog please send me a message. Please keep it all positive.  

This is part of my positivity plan. Allowing others to see their names in print and then stories or poems that are positive about them is reinforcing to adults and children.  

Enjoy this! I will post a few random names until people choose to participate and give some names. I will continue as long as people would like to participate. I believe it will be nice for any blogger to share with a friend or family member poems “about them” from so many talented writers. Enjoy!
