Haste Makes Waste commercial by Odney

This is a commercial the creative team at Odney recently put together. I don't know if it will run in this market, so I just wanted to share it. Not to mention the fact that I just love it!

Kudos to the team that worked on it. (wish I could say I was part of it, but they pretty much keep me in web world)

International Music Camp: Not just for musicians

First off, I apologize for neglecting my blog lately. I will try to get back on track!

But back to the post...Last week I had the fortunate experience of visiting International Music Camp for the very first time. Nestled in the beautiful Turtle Mountains of North Dakota (one of my most favorite places...even though they aren't really mountains) is a camp rich in culture. Just walking through the facility, hearing the different sounds and seeing the energy from the kids was truly an inspiration. And that environment, being surrounded by the birch trees and just a skip away from the International Peace Gardens, is truly a site to behold.

I had the misconception that this camp was strictly for musicians, and I, not being able to do a thing musically, had never gotten the chance to see what it's all about. Little did I know, the camp offers sessions for all the ARTS! They offers sessions on painting, basic art, creative writing, dance, digital photography, drama, drawing and more!

Now, my mission should be one of two things:

1. Attend camp as an adult. After all, don't adults need more of an escape from the everyday than kids?

2. Convince my boss to give me the summer off so I can teach there.

Since I know #2 is never going to happen, perhaps I should focus on #1. Fellow blog should really hold me to this!

You know what to do. Comment your caption. Make me laugh.

Thoughts from a three year old

Well, it's been awhile since I've shared anything on my blog. Call it uninspired I guess. So today I will share some happy thoughts from my three year old yesterday.

We were driving in the car and I let out a "darn it". Not bad, I know. It was even a "darn" and not a "damn" so I should be pretty safe. Anyway, he says, "Why you say dat mommy?" Busted. So, I explained that I probably shouldn't have said that and mommy was naughty. He says, "You're not naughty mommy, you're HAPPY!"

Awwww....even when I'm not feeling that happy, it's good to know that he still has the impression that I am!! It reminds us that those little ears are always listening and those little eyes are always observing. ;-)

Make it a Happy Day!
