Whew! It was a hot one today (about 98 F!). We spent the afternoon riding around in the ATV servicing some of our homeless pets, in addition to seeing one at the Topeka Rescue Mission, and one at an owner’s home.
Today, I volunteered by filling out the paperwork forms with the pet owners including the rabies certificates. I also took lots of photos and videos to help The Street Dog Coalition on our social media platforms (I’m on their national social media team). I’m now in the process of editing those digital assets then creating videos by turning them into ‘stories from our streets’ so if you follow @The Street Dog Coalition over on Instagram, you’ll get to see some of my photos and videos over there.
Here’s the first video in the series, Scoob’s story (short for Scooby Doo) featuring his very first visit to our monthly pop-up clinic at the Topeka Rescue Mission. (30 sec video).

The end of the old year and the beginning of a new year always makes me want to turn inward and spend some quiet, quality time in introspection. I don’t believe in resolutions, yet every year I focus on creating an intention or two to focus on throughout the year. This intention helps me maintain my motivation, inspiration, and to keep on track towards my true north star of following my heart and dreams (goals).
Still in the midst of a global pandemic, I’ve really been feeling the need for more peace, calm, and stillness in my life. Inspired by a generous free art class offering from StudioWorks, I completed a class in painting stones, which was the jumping off point for the meditative process of stenciling each stone with intentions, goals, and focus.
Mother Earth is my greatest inspiration, and so I created these two artworks to pay homage to both earth and sea, with mindfulness, gratitude and great intention for the coming year.
Want to learn more about the process of how I went about creating these beautiful artworks? Hop on over the The Crafter’s Workshop Blog and https://www.thecraftersworkshop.com/blog/2022/01/zen-stone-balance/ read my blog post tutorial!
