Inspiration is a two-way Street

When I began this blog two years ago, I included the tag line “inspiration comes from everywhere.” I have shared my inspiration and hope that my posts have occasionally inspired others.

Last September, I heard from a friend that his wife was interested in a photograph of mine. She asked for permission to create a painting based on it.

I was amazed by her talent when I looked at her website Danielle Hatherley and was honored at the prospect. Below is the incredible painting “Summer Glow – Boulder ”

Friday night, I was able to meet her and see the painting at a lovely art gallery near Golden, Colorado. Mirada Fine Art Gallery Inspiration is a two-way Street.

Shop Local

There are so many ways and reasons why it’s important to support local businesses. Independent book stores are my favorite places to visit no matter where I travel.

It’s been a while since I shopped for toys, but for the month of April I’ll be spending a lot of time at a Denver toy store, or should I say four wonderful stores? Timbuk Toys has four locations and I am the April Author-of-the-Month at all of them. This is a great example of a local store supporting a local author; something that takes ‘Shop Local’ to another level.

It’s fun to spend time in such a happy place as I’ve been able to share ALIANA REACHES FOR THE MOON with people shopping for birthday gifts, a few teachers, a dad looking for a gift for his daughter, and of course children. Sharing my book with children makes my teacher 💜 so happy! I was even surprised by a friend who came after seeing my event posted on Facebook.

I’ll be visiting all four stores during the month so if you’re in the Denver area, check out TimbukToys and buy a signed copy or two of ALIANA REACHES FOR THE MOON!

 

Maker Made Exhibit

Boulder Public Library is the home to so many wonderful resources. The exhibit that I’ve been admiring for the past two months is on its way out. Here are a few highlights.

Both of these installations were created by Rozie Vajda who was kind enough to give me a demonstration as recorded in the video.

Tunes and Tales

I’m very excited with all the wonderful avenues I’ve been allowed to share and celebrate my new book! On Wednesday, I spent the day in Fort Collins, Colorado recording Tunes and Tales with show host Kristen Olsen and Jonathan Bennett!
