Because this event that I started in 2015 I had the opportunity  to discover and connect with numerous great Blogs. I had the pleasure and honor to Feature many and still is not easy for me to choose only one of you each month. Sorry this month I am a little  late but I was able to made  my pick for September and finally write this post.

This month we have the opportunity to visit the creative world of Jodi exploring all the beautiful things that she does with her creativity!

Today I am very happy and honored to introduce you my dear friend and Featured of the  MonthJodi McKinney  and her beautiful  Blog THE CREATIVE LIFE IN BETWEEN   Jodi says “I enjoy writing immensely…  painting pictures with words…  expressing emotions through words…    telling stories…  sharing my thoughts and my escapades…  musing from mars…”

Several months ago I happily connected with Jodi through the Blog of our dear friend Charlie from  We came across each other blogs because our passion for watercolor painting. I loved to discover her Blog and what she share, she love to craft and sell her creations on Etsy. Jodi has lots of creativity, from painting, to writing, to photography to cooking…and lots more. Her beautiful and positive energy shows in everything she does.  I love to be connected with Jodi and I love to read her comments on my Blog. We have many things and passion in common that we love and can relate. And today I am very happy to share her Blog with you!

This is an excerpt of her About Page…

People have been telling me for a while that I should write a blog….  Okay – a few people….  Maybe just a couple….   Oh well – I want to try a blog and one or two people might have encouraged me….  So here I go.  I have a very full and blessed life.  First and foremost, I am a wife to a wonderful (most of the time) man I met when I was 16 years old, married when I was 19, and still tell I love every day 32 33 years later (you do the math – yep – I’m 51 52 years old!  Where did the time go?!)  Truly – it is he who puts up with me!  I am mom to two of the most amazing young men in the entire world and mother-in-law to the sweetest young lady any mom could wish for her son to find.  My full-time job is director of corporate communications for a hospice and home health agency (shameless plug for :)), where my husband tells me I get paid to talk for a living.  Of course I do a few more things… but I am truly blessed to work for an amazing company.  (Please also note:  the views expressed on this blog are my own and are in no way related to Celtic Healthcare.)

This blog is going to be about all that stuff that is in between that… the things I love to do…. (Continue reading)

    • Robin I gave a brief visit to your interesting Blog and I decided to follow is nice to connect with you! I also read something that kept my attention, you wrote and illustrated a children book “Kissing a Bunny is like saying a Prayer” how beautiful I actually had a lovely bunny as a pet and he died few days ago I am very sad he was wonderful and his kisses were very special that’s why the title of your book got my attention. I wrote a post about my loss!
