There are Fairies in my Garden

For today, my blog name has informally changed.  Instead of Fat Girl Wearing Thin, I welcome you to Garden Girl Wearing Overalls (OK, not so terribly clever, but hey – it’s only for a day.)  As you know, last Friday was my Fairy Garden class.  When I showed up, Patti the shop owner welcomed me […]

No More Magic Tricks Here at Home.

Throwing around negative words about myself makes me feel like a magician sometimes.  One minute the derogatory comment is there and then POOF! I’ve moved the listener on to the next trick that’s so twinkly and bright, they don’t even realize what’s happened.  I’ve become quite good at it actually, this art of being negative.  […]

Monday Musings: A breakthrough and a do-over.
