I love this time of year. I get more creative during these next few months than any other time. This is when I make homemade gifts for family, friends, and neighbors.
I am a creative person. I've been accused of being a cutesie creator, and you know, that's ok. I consider that a huge compliment since to me 'cutesie' = 'love'. I love working on projects, and this time of the year is the best. I spend most of my days writing stories and poems, my favorite creativity. My first novel ‘Always’ will be out before Christmas. I’m hoping to have my poetry published also before Christmas. I can’t wait to share these with the world. I write in Womens Genre with a hint of Spirituality/New Age. My poems tend towards spirituality and Love. And I insist on happy endings. I am sharing one of my autumn poems at the end of this blog.
There is something about the quietness and beauty of these next few months that inspire me, whether it is writing a story/poem or crafting or baking. Besides, it is the warmth of love that helps us all through the cold months.
Autumn and winter is when I bake cookies. There is something nurturing in warm cookies fresh out of the oven, plus that yummy aroma that fills the air. My family flock to the kitchen when they smell those cookies in the oven.
The best part of being creative, is the love I get back for my gifts to others.
I want to thank Christina for this wonderful opportunity. I so enjoy her blog hops. Thank you, too, for dropping by.
The Last Leaf’s Abscission by DM Yates
Autumn shifts to winter.
The last leaf holds its ground.
Upon the barren tree,
Abides one leaf turned brown.
Cold and bitter winds blow.
Alone it fights the breeze.
Stubbornly it clings still.
On the ground, fallen leaves.
It can’t hold much longer,
the wind is stronger now.
It must release its hold
And floating down, will bow.
LHR, dear friends. (love, honor, respect)

DO NOT use copy and paste comments of "please follow me" on other blogs! If they like you, they'll follow. And when you do leave comments, take the time to read the post you are commenting on! Imagine if someone happens to post about the death of a loved one, and a reader leaves a comment that says, "Hope you'll follow my blog!". NOT COOL! I think it's perfectly fine to leave your blog link with a signature, but it should be after a comment that let's the blogger know that you actually read something on their blog.
This hop has become a great way for us all to boost readers and comments. So hop around, enjoy some blog reading and leave some sweet comments, and please tweet the hop if you have a second. Thanks so much, everyone!
