Living Today was introduced about 3 years ago, and probably sums up my ‘go to’ philosophy for living my life each day.  Here is a part of the message: Do not let the fast-forward pace of the world deprive you from savoring 'the now'. Seek things that fill you with love and bring you joy. Have faith, it fosters hope - it makes the difference. Believe, with God all things are possible. Live well - live today, for it is a gift.

The Greatest Gift of All by Bonnie Mohr The holidays are so big, so much. There doesn’t seem like enough time, this time of year, to take it all in….the decorating, shopping, baking, wrapping, singing, entertaining, eating, and then more eating and the endless hubbub of just everything!  It is also a time of reflecting…on the joys of family and the friendship of loved ones.  It is time to reflect on the year that is about to close and...

Morning Calls by Bonnie Mohr Each December, about the second or third week, I need to stop, take a minute, and get a grip.  Do you know this feeling? I have lost my Santa list and have no idea where I am with present buying, the boxes of Christmas decoration are put back into the closet but I am still tweaking and fixing the house – replacing light bulbs – adding sprigs of evergreen here and there, greeting guests at the Studio, trying...

The Home Place, By Bonnie Mohr This is exactly what Minnesota looks like today! It is still dark outside as I am up early to write my blog this morning, but gazing out the window at the yard light creates a euphoria all it’s own….it is like the best snow-globe you can imagine. I now pack up my denial that winter is coming, put it in a box, and stow it away for awhile……winter is here!  Life is just too short to buck the system, but gosh... Read More

Ready or not, here come the Holidays!! I’m in a bit of a panic right now…..I cannot find my outdoor Christmas lights!!! Bahhhhhh!!! I have looked everywhere – they are no where to be found. This is the last week of 50 degree weather that we will enjoy in MN (next weeks forecast takes a dive into the 30’s and 40s, which is actually still good for this time of year), but the goal is to find the lights and get them up this week. Stay... Read More

God Bless America's Heroes by Bonnie Mohr Hello Hello from Rich Valley Township – there will be a million election commentaries today, so I will spare you my two cents worth EXCEPT, I would like to publicly congratulate John boy on his win to the Rich Valley Township Board!  Whoot whoot!  ( I know, this is two blogs back to back with Whoot Whoots in them, but it just seems so fitting)  I’m not sure John is so much a politician as he is...

When you are in retail, this is a very confusing time of the year, and I will explain why…..I live in a house that is decorated for Halloween (and by the way Zach’s Halloween party was a smashing success – it’s not that I subconsciously need to feel accepted amongst a group of 15 year old boys but it is kind of cool that they all love me ; ) (… and I love them too!),  my heart is gravitating towards my most favorite holiday of the year...

Framed prints and canvas giclees of WINTER PARK are here! We had over 3 million requests last year (maybe 4)  for the printing of this nostalgic, ‘that looks just like my grandpa’s truck’, and please call me when you print this piece appeals!!  Here you go – now available in two size prints and also a gallery-wrap canvas giclee.  (Remember, you can hang a gallery wrap giclee directly on the wall or frame it – either works, both look...
