TIF collageTamarack Idea Factory

is a blog that celebrates creativity.  I think that it is very important to be creative, and it is vital to teach our children how to be creative in this time period of mass-produced entertainment.  I want my children to be creators, not  just consumers. I love the quote from Tuesdays with Morrie, by Mitch Album – “Well, for one thing, the culture we have does not make people feel good about themselves. We’re teaching the wrong things. And you have to be strong enough to say if the culture doesn’t work, don’t buy it. Create your own.

This blog is all about celebrating creativity – in the world around (check out my creative homeless post) in my children (mommy presents) in myself ( no budget birthday bash) and in some of my favorite people (Mr. Rogers).

The three top posts are –

Homemade Easter Sugar Eggs

Reindeer Thumbprint Cards

Paper Doll Palooza and Interview with Creator, Cory Jensen

Some favorite categories include –

Book Reviews

Music

Creative Play


 

LR collageLight Refreshments

is a blog that discusses religious and spiritual ideas. Though it has been written to discuss theology from the point of view of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, there are many ideas there that can be used by people of all faith and spirituality as we all learn to draw nearer to God.

The top five posts are –

How Women Can Gain Power: A Response to “Why Standard’s Night is Sub-Standard – teaching sexuality to young women” 

Yielding our Hearts to God

Oh Utah! Such a Bitter Battle …

Putting our “Exception” on the Altar

Thou Shalt … Judge?

 


 

WP collageWaldron Publishing

In 2011, I started an eBook publishing company. Just as it got going, I found I was pregnant with our third daughter. Due to my age and other circumstances, the pregnancy was rough and I was unable to keep up with the pace that the burgeoning company needed to survive and thrive. So, in 2014, I gave all of the publishing rights back to the authors and still maintain two books. I am looking to one day begin again, armed with the great knowledge and experience gained from the original attempt.

I am very proud of the work that we did and what we were able to accomplish.

As a shout out, I recommend the wonderful books that we published. I was so blessed to work with such talented authors and creators, for whom I owe such a debt of gratitude for believing in me and in the project. I hope, at the end of the day that it was as good an experience (to learn and to grow) for each of them as it was for me. Here is a run-down of what we did in three short years.
