Repetitive Dreaming

I thought I left this repetitive dream behind in 2018 because since the new year, I haven’t dreamt of it again. Until this morning. The dream always had an old feel to it. Nostalgia, perhaps, in a wretched way that was both a wish for things to have stayed as they were and for things…… Continue reading Repetitive Dreaming

Favorite Christmas Memory

My favorite Christmas memory was many, many years ago when I was still a loyal believer in Santa Claus. I wrote a letter to him that I hid under some books, and to my shock, I later found a typed up note in my room that he wrote. In my naivete, I really thought he…… Continue reading Favorite Christmas Memory

Sadly, most of my childhood works…… Continue reading My Childhood Creations

Sound of Silence

Under the right circumstances, I find silence to be calming if my heart is at ease and I’m content with whatever is going on in my day. Sometimes I make my own silence if I’m in an environment where there is mild background noise and it is easy to tune out. Giving myself a moment…… Continue reading Sound of Silence

Putting Together Puzzles

A simple activity that I’m sad to say I don’t indulge in as much anymore in this day and age is working on jigsaw puzzles. I loved piecing them together when I was a kid. I especially enjoyed working on a challenging puzzle that had over a thousand pieces. I would always start out collecting…… Continue reading Putting Together Puzzles

Stitching Adventures

It’s been a while since I did an update post on my embroidery projects. If you don’t see update photos for specific wips I have posted about before in the past, it’s either I haven’t made a lot of progress so I didn’t think it warranted an update photo or I haven’t taken a photo…… Continue reading Stitching Adventures

Wishes That Never Came True

The title of this post sounds potentially grim, but I thought it would be an interesting topic to talk about because there is an underlying positivity to wishes. Wishes are a reminder to me that to wish is to have hope even if it never comes true. I feel wistful and nostalgic remembering the ones…… Continue reading Wishes That Never Came True
