Letting Creativity into Your Life

Letting Creativity into Your Life

Creativity: an attitude, not an action Every week, I get an e-mail asking me cultivating a creative life. The emails come from mothers, fathers,  empty nesters, over- worked employees, and Panini Generation members who are all looking for a way to express themselves. But somehow, they are stymied when it comes to starting.   I take [...]

Monday is Create Your Own Retail Emporium Day

Monday is Create Your Own Retail Emporium Day

Happy Monday, Chaos Crew… I would like to give full credit to Jill from Anaheim for this blog post idea. Thank you, Jill. You made me LOL last night when I read your e-mail. Jill and her husband have fantasies about the retail emporium that they would like to start. In Jill’s  words: I am [...]

I am accumulating some informal data  for a Chaos Chronicles-related project.  I thought I’d share some of the preliminary findings [...]

To Do List and Chaos Chronicles 222

Oh, Crew… I am wiped out by the late night of skating and an early morning meeting. Okay, 8 am is not that early– but I did have to  put on pants with waistband which is an effort for me. Finally, back at it here at CCHQ. On the To Do List for the weekend: [...]

I’m So Glad You Care , Pepperidge Farm

I’m So Glad You Care , Pepperidge Farm

Cucumber sandwiches aren't the same without you, VTWB. A few weeks ago, I sent out a desperate tweet: Why, why doesn’t any big bakery make slider buns? And then I added to my 100 characters, “Get on it , Pepperidge Farm. ” And you know who tweeted back? Pepperidge Farm! The actual Pepperidge Farm! They [...]

New Frontier for School Volunteer: The Tender of the Bar

My name is Lian. I am a serial school volunteer. Thanks for all the e-mails about my school auction on Saturday night. Yes, I survived the auction with my new boots and my old feet in tact! The event went off like clockwork, despite a heavy downpour the night before and another during the party. [...]

Chaos Chronicles 221 is up at the website. As I write this, we are still working on some technical issues with iTunes. Again, the quirkiness [...]

The Joy of Being Home Alone

The Joy of Being Home Alone

You're cute.. but don't come home until Friday. Dear Husband… Sorry, honey, but I am glad you headed to Fresno today to testify at that trial. I love you… but I love when you travel on business, too. It’s not like you’re gone a lot, just a couple times a year, which is why your [...]
