- Hi, I’m Renata. I’m a mom, a wife, and a teacher. I am also a writer, a painter, and a general creative soul. I love to write stories for children and poetry for adults. My favourite painting medium is acrylics. As well, I love to craft with my kids. While the goal is to have focused, daily creative time, that is not always possible with a five year old, three year old, and a one year old. That is why post it notes with sentence fragments, story ideas, and sketch ideas can be found on most surfaces in my home. This blog is a record of my attempts at sanity and at making me time for creativity while being a mommy of three.

Power of Now Reflections For some reason, I feel great resistance while reading The Power of Now. His focus on living with constant “deep trouble” and “sadness” doesn’t resinate with me. However, my flat resistance to the book isn’t helping me access the … Continue reading
January and February were a bit of a doozy of a couple of months. They were work focused toward a specific goal which was worthwhile (and thankfully ended in results I was aiming for) but this month, I need … Continue reading
