Welcome to Junie Moon!




I am excited about starting this blog and sharing a little bit of my world with you. After encouragement from some lovely friends—here I am! My sincerest thanks go to Kristie, Kelli, and Mrs. Staggs—three creative women who touch my heart and inspire me to reach for the stars:

Kristie writes insightful poetry, plays guitar and sings like an angel, creates amazing clay art and inlaid wood designs, as well as designing wonderful jewelry. Kristie is mega-talented.

Kelli taught me that we can take the love in our hearts and apply it to caring for the world in very real ways. Kelli is one of those people in the world who talks about making things better and actually does it. She walks her talk.

Mrs. Staggs is the embodiment of grace and gentleness in the world. I’m a high-energy type person and often lose my balance in the world but when I read Mrs. Stagg’s thoughtful blog or exchange emails with her, I find myself feeling calmer and more able to savor life’s inherent sweetness.

Inspiration Pillow and Tutorial



I made this pillow to remind me that anything is possible. And, since September is National Sewing Month, what better way to celebrate than sharing my project with you. This tutorial is my way to thank you for visiting me on this first day of my new blogging life.

My Inspiration Pillow Tutorial is listed in the right-hand column.

Oh, yaaaayyyyyyyyyyyy! I'm so happy that you've started a blog. I just found it and had to stop to comment about how excited I am about it. You are always so supportive of everyone's endeavors and leave such sweet comments. I've wanted to be able to thank you for that and to get to "know" you a bit better.
Now I have to go start reading your blog....
Big hugs to you
