During quarantine, I’ve discovered a lot of things about myself. I like to make checklists to maintain some semblance of productivity. I don’t hate the Marvel movies. I can go a week without washing my hair. And I love paint by numbers (or – as I affectionately call it – “PBN”). I have to giveContinue reading “Crafty Nonsense: PBN”
Aaaahh Bagel Balls… my go-to food of quarantine. The delightful taste has become synonymous with working from home, a delicious escape in between WebEx meetings. They’re simple to make, and they’re simply scrumptious. To the point where I make them 3-4 times a week. Creature of habit? I know what I like. This recipe isContinue reading “Yum Nonsense: Air Fryer Bagel Balls”
I often find myself reflecting on the simpler times Before Corona Era (BCE)… hugs, smiling faces, live music, sporting events, high fives. There are a lot of things that we are obviously missing these days as we keep our distance and do whatever we can to minimize the spread of this terrifying virus. But I am not going to write about those things. Instead, I am going to write about the BCE nonsense.

Simple, classic, but also magical. We initially shopped the interwebs looking for a wagon that we could use to transport Ryan’s weight set fromContinue reading “Recommended Nonsense: The Waggin’ Wagon”
Disclaimer: this blog will have a good bit of content about two very prominent characters in my life story. Affectionately dubbed the B’s, the girls, BohzNBarks. Our rescue pups Bohzie and Barklee.
When quarantine started, my mind raced in a billion different directions. Nobody has a guidebook on a pandemic, a roadmap for where this will take us and how long it will last. So my first response was panic. I stocked up on canned goods and cleaning products. I scoured online news articles for predictions and answers. I asked my boyfriend Ryan at least three times a day… “Is the world ending?!”
Then I took a few deep breaths. And I turned to my trusty creative therapy outlet that has gotten me through a plethora of low points over the years: collaging. In high school, I started cutting up magazines for images, colors, and fonts that I then pieced together into unique creations.
Time to take the plunge into the blogosphere. Again. Now, in the era of quarantine and social distancing, is without a doubt the time. Corona has ushered in a a rollercoaster ride of emotion: anxiety, fear, frustration. But also hope, inspiration, and a hell of a lot of creativity. During our time at home, quarantiningContinue reading “Welcome to Yes Nonsense!”
