Calm down with your elf hate. Seriously, it's a doll, people.

A Pork Sword, a Yam Bag and a Scalpel
When our oldest child was two, he discovered his boy parts.
With a smile of glee plastered on his tiny face, he sat in the bathtub and
played with his twig and berries. I sighed and told my husband, “This is your
area. I’m out.” My husband cocked his head t...

The Angel of Two Mule Junction
It was a hot day in August when we shoved the last of the camping essentials into the trailer and caught the horses to load them for the trip. The summer had been a bit off kilter. Good times were certainly had, but the stronger theme of the last few months...

Give Elves a Chance
Dear People of the Internet, Recently, I've witnessed something tragic. It's hate. Elf hate. Now, I'm not one to be divisive (as far as you know), but I would like to take a minute to gently persuade all of the Elf on the Shelf haters to calm your freaking ...

Jessica Watson's beautiful story about the fighting spirit of a preemie now available to purchase on Amazon! And, oh yeah, I illustrated it. :)

Story
Tagline
Corn Fed Girl
Introduction
I was raised on corn and pork in the great state of Iowa. I enjoy reading, cooking, eating, art, photography, wine, the great outdoors, most animals, remembering the past incorrectly, licking glass and pecking at shiny things. In my spare time I mother two tow-headed boys, write stories, illustrate, and do laundry. I also share my life with a handsome husband, a herd of cats, a dog or three, four gorgeous horses and anyone who needs a warm house and a sense of belonging.

Any business with "Outfitters" in their title and a dog named Sailor as their greeter is okay by me!

My vehicle broke down in the parking lot of the gas station next door. When I inquired about a room and explained my situation, the front desk attendant told me that they were quite full but had a few rooms left. He priced a room at $176.00, but offered a "discount" of $136. I see here the rooms advertised as $89. Something smells funny.
