Taking Time for a Teacup Exchange

Trust me! You do NOT want to see what all I have stuffed on my calendar over the next four months! I tremble and tuck tail when I have to look at that list. Hiding out under my bed sounds pretty good.

Now . . . it’s not that what I have going on is a bad thing–just too much of really good things.

And beauty, of course.


Let’s see . . . I’m launching my 1st WRITER’S REVERIE PODCAST on September 30th, which means I have to master the art of audio editing by then. No problem!


I have to publish the first of our digital Clementine Jones Drama and Derring-Do Books for homeschool, Sunday school, children’s church, home church, and family devotions. 

Piece of cake.

keep calm

I have to complete the text for Book 2 in my Fable Springs Parables Series–Bugaboo-Bee’s Bop: Patience for the Prize–AND host the online and “live hive” fundraising event so I have enough cash to actually produce the book in print for a Spring 2016 release.

It’s in the bank!

Lest we forget–I have a new author coaching program I’m putting together to help writers develop their work, publish their work, build a platform, and market their finished product



Yeah–don’t talk to me about staying inside comfort zones.

You bet I need a little teatime diversion!!

Stephanie at The Enchanting Rose has come to the rescue with just the thing happening NOW–in September–and I’ve already signed up to participate. Click here to learn how you can too!


She’s done this before, it would seem, and I’m coming to the party a couple of years late. But at least I got here! And boy will I need this little spirit and soul lifter over the next few weeks!

It’s easy to connect with other tea lovers and connoisseurs of all things teacups and mugs from all over the world when we have such a savvy hostess to put this all together for us. I know I will need this teatime break for presents in the mail and a new teacup prize to add to my collection.

PLUS–I’ll make a new friend across the miles and in Blogland to add to my heart! Here’s how:

1. Go to The Enchanting Rose webpage for the exchange.

2. Read all the directions.

3. Click on the form and fill it out with lots of details.

4. Copy the code for the sidebar button and add it to your website.

5. Dream about what you’ll package up to send to someone special as you await further directions.

6. Pray for the special someone you’ll be sending a prize to–that’s a BONUS!

I’m sharing this with all my tea ladies this week and hope you’ll participate, too!

  3. Well, my dear Kathy, you are certainly going to be busy! It is wonderful to have goals and such aspirations. Love the Philippians 4:13 teacup!
