Happy Holidays!

I've been so swamped in gift wrap and cardmaking these days and I LOVE it! Pictures to come after a few days.

A safe and happy holiday to you and yours.

some people

hide behind their shadows
and walk in blurry fire
(whispers dissolve)

are you really
all that?

Vote for me? ;)

There's a really cool contest that just closed up at, and the top 5 most "hearted" entries will be submitted for the final judging by Lauren Oliver (the author of the YA novel Before I Fall).

My entry is here: You have to make an account to "heart" something, but if you have the time to do that -- or if you already have an account -- I'd really appreciate it if you helped me out :) Thank you!

A winter treat

We sang this song in my choir at school last year, and I loved it so much I had to look it up on Youtube. It's one of the most beautiful songs I've ever heard.

So I somehow woke up today...

and realized there was a PAD challenge in November that I completely missed. I guess I'll have to try to go back and find the prompts to write some poems as quickly as possible...maybe I'll have a few up on here.

In other news, the lovely Beth Kephart introduced me to, which is a phenomenal site. It's a whole new twist on your typical online writing community -- it reminds me of a ramped-up ReadWritePoem. Check it out!
