  • My favorite issue of the year is out! Bella Grace Magazine: Cozy! Volume 5 is a delight and I hope that you fall into some cozy pillows and blankets as you read and snuggle up. I was inspired to write the article, “Top to Toes Cozy in 10 Simple Steps,” when I thought about the reality that “hurry” and “relax” cannot stand side-by-side. So … no hurrying, no worrying, just cozy up and enjoy!

Hugs and fall favorites!

Once upon your story might be the most important part of it. Once was the time when the world welcomed you and nature performed in the harmony of heaven to teach you the art of dreaming.

Written in a soft, poetic voice and accompanied by mixed media illustrations of watercolor and photography, this books is the perfect gift for that new wonder entering the world.
