Last Week in Oxford

I’m home! (After what felt like a very short three weeks!) I’m thankful both to have gone and to have come home. Now that the long weekend is past and I’m back to work, I’m finally able to post the last of my photos from the final week of my trip. I’ve uploaded a whole album […]

Week #2 in Oxford

My second-week post is a bit late due to WiFi issues earlier in the week, but better late than never, I guess! So technically this is “Week Two-and-a-half in Oxford.” Over the last ten days, my sister and I went punting, strolled through lovely parks, had a picnic in the backyard, experienced formal hall at […]

Week #1 in Oxford

Today marks a full week since I left for the UK to visit my sister LaRae! I thought it was high time to share a few photos. (I’ve posted many more pictures from the trip on our Facebook page, so be sure to check those out!) I’ll post another update before long, and in the […]

The Road Goes Ever On…

Anyone else feel surprised by summer this year? by it being May 1st all of the sudden? I’m nearly beside myself with joy to see leafy green everywhere and clean-slate skies. I always think of that e. e. cummings poem at this time of year: “I thank You God for most this amazing day:for the […]

Vote! Which Is Your Favorite Logo?

The building that houses our new office is home to more than just our Plays with a Punch™. I privately teach Latin and English from this location as well, and it’s also a place for research and writing, beyond just my playwriting. So we’ve decided that the building itself needs an identity other than “Kittywham […]

In November (three months ago already!), we introduced our new office space and gave a mini tour. As you might imagine, we’ve continued to improve the place since then, bit by bit. We figured it was time to share a few pictures of what’s new! We’ve hung our official Kittywham Productions banner, and you can […]

Philopluvia

Yes, I technically made up that word. But you might recognize its two parts: philo, from the Greek φιλος, and pluvia, a Latin root. Philo conveys the idea of love or friendship, as in “philosophy,” the love of wisdom, “bibliophile,” a book-lover, and so on. Pluvia simply means “rain,” as in Pluviôse, the fifth month of […]

Guest Post for “Sweet Greens”

Morning, all! I thought I’d share with you a guest blog post I wrote this week for my friends at Sweet Greens. They’re a local market garden and greenhouse operation in my hometown of Salem, Illinois, specializing in fresh, quality tomatoes. I got to explore their hoop house one evening last week and learn a […]

Whales, Sleeves, Et Cetera

Fun fact: I like drawing cartoon puppets. Like this blonde, wide-eyed mare. Several years ago I was highly entertained by the “Popsicle Stick Theater with Chester Whigget” from Phil Vischer’s What’s in the Bible? series, so I decided to try my hand at popsicle stick puppetry. (I mean, why not?) I started by drawing imitations […]
