Holiday Memories and Trimming the Christmas Tree

Ahhhh, I love this time of year! Trimming the Christmas tree, hanging lights and the smell of pies cooking in my mothers kitchen brings back many fond memories. My mother would go through many boxes of ornaments that she'd saved over the years reminiscing over all of them. She would strategically place all of hers in just the perfect spot. Our tree resembled the one that sat in the Macy's window display other than, it didn't have our trees special touch including, but not limited to popcorn…

Our Holiday Halloween

Our Halloween trick-or-treat customs actually descended from a belief that the family dead would bring gifts or so called goodies to the children upon their temporary return from the other side.

Barbara Watkins Blog

With several reviews (collected before its release) and countless bookmarks, along with hundreds of flyer's, I started the daunting task of promoting my work.
