Visit our new Pinterest page for drama inspiration!

Contrary to popular belief, we don’t think Pinterest is just a place for DIY projects and recipes. (Although, we admit, cheesecake photos are truly inspirational.) But pictures can provide inspiration in countless areas besides the culinary and home improvement arts. That’s why we’ve started a Kittywham Productions page on Pinterest, where we’re collecting photos to […]

Just Another Christmas Story?

You know the title. Christmas at The Three Bees. You’ve read the synopsis. (Refer to yesterday’s post if necessary!) Yet another Christmas story added to the canon. There are so many, why do we even bother? Can we really keep telling the same old tale in a fresh voice, from an interesting viewpoint? Honestly, I think […]

I’m an old woman. And not all that old either. Luke, baby, we’ve talked about this. Luke: [raising an eyebrow] I’m sorry. Was that the time we also talked about […]

Stars and Stripes

Go watch fireworks. Take your family. Celebrate freedom and a place to call home. In other news, I’m sporting my semi-patriotic Kittywham shirt in the office today (red, white, and blue, you know…and the “punch” looks explosion-ish, right?). I’m not writing a real post today because July 4th. Be back next week with a Super […]
