There are days I think I live in Neverland. Not because Peter Pan is lurking around, but because I never seems to get to things I intend to do.
We are a little late jumping into the blogging universe. I have been a bit busy applying my Red Lips 4 Courage and living day-by-day. My daughter has been battling Crohn’s Disease, and it has completely changed our lives. She has stabilized and is doing well enough to have returned to school and life is beginning to resemble a routine again. Praise God!
So, in the hopes of leaving Neverland, I am able to dip my toes back into the Creative Synchronicities that are the pleasurable part of the work we do and the books we publish.

Last week was one of those weeks when I feel bathed in joy about my work and the amazing people I cross paths with. When my children were toddlers, I was involved in the opening of Kidseum, a children’s museum that is part of the Bowers Museum of Cultural Art in Santa Ana, CA. My children came of age in a world of globalism and multi-cultural mixes being the norm. Kidseum gave them a window to that world while they were forming their perceptions. Jamie Fingal who is equally passionate about the cultural arts was on staff at Bowers. Fast forward, children are teenagers, I am back in publishing, and Jamie followed her muse and has become an accomplished art quilter. www.jamiefingal.com When she submitted some of her work, we recognized each other’s names. There is that Creative Synchronicity!Jamie is now the author of Embellished Mini-Quilts, an exquisite gallery of beautiful art quilts. Jamie gathered fellow members of Studio Art Quilts Associates (SAQA) www.saqa.com , and with the help of our beloved book editor, Rebecca Ittner, created a brilliant book.
