In Life.In.Lists. by Tami Potter

What Made Me Happy Today? Happiness is… 1. Chocolate Covered Strawberries (Kevin bought them for me before he left for the Great Lakes Mega Meet.) 2. A fun decorative font (link to Rapscallion font – pictured below) – (I was able to use this font and my design skills to help a friend with an invitation – that always makes …

ACROSTIC – LIST CHALLENGE: Write your name down the left-hand side of the page, (like you would for an acrostic poem). Next to each letter write a positive word that describes YOU.

In Life.In.Lists. by Tami Potter

If you had a free day – to do anything you wanted – what would you do?   FREE DAY! I am sure all this would change, depending on my mood at the time; but, if I had a free day… 1. I'd get Kevin to spend the day with me. 2. I'd get up early. I am an early …

Mosaic Moments – bits and pieces

In Mosaic Moments™ by Tami Potter

My mother made many quilts over the years. Some of the most cherished included fabric scraps from clothing she made for us. I love the idea of making my "scraps" useful like she did.

In Life.In.Lists. by Tami Potter

Out of Place Do you ever wonder how things got where they are?   1. There's a plastic candy cane in the pencil holder on my desk – I have no idea what it is doing in there. (It really should be packed away with the Christmas tree ornaments.) 2. Inside that same pencil holder I found a ping pong …

In Life.In.Lists. by Tami Potter

I have friends who I can easily chat with on the phone for hours. We start talking and the conversation just continues to flow from one subject to another. Memories can be a lot like conversations they can begin in one place an end in a completely different place. Try it out: Begin with… a circular object … like the …

Home is where the Heart is – Thursday May 3

In Life.In.Lists. by Tami Potter

  Home is where the Heart is   Until a few years ago, when people asked me, "Where are you from?" I hesitated before answering. That's a good question I'd think to myself. I was born in Idaho shortly after my family moved across the border to Oregon. When I was 3-4 we lived in Eastern Washington. Then we moved …

oh my word DARE! Wednesday May 2

In Life.In.Lists., OH MY WORD! by Tami Potter

I double dog DARE you! When I was a kid I remember the news talking about a man, named Evel Knievel, who was going to jump over the Snake River Canyon. It seemed like a crazy thing to do – no one could jump over a big canyon like that! Right? He survived the stunt – but, as I remember …
