What a day! I am finally back to this special blog… “Spreadin’ Smiles Blog”
First, I want to thank so many people who have subscribed to my Spreadin’ Smiles Blog. It is so exciting to see so many of you are interested in reading my blog. Hopefully, you are also interested in joining me in celebrating people who are igniting the world with their smiles.
Right now…let me share what is happening with this campaign. All this work has moved to the State of Washington. There is even a storefront where I hope you will visit Our place is called Experiosity Smilin’ Place. What I plan to do is begin connecting with the community of Port Angeles, Washington. The town has already reached out to me in wanting to be a part of the mission in bringing smiles through activities we will develop right here at our Experiosity Smilin’ Place. Have included a photo of our children’s playhouse which will promote both reading and having fun with puppets. I have never known a puppet who did not bring a smile to anyone’s face. So…our first phase is to bring art, books and puppets to the Experiosity Smilin’ Place along with calling out to all Kids to become an Experiosity Kid Reporter.
You ask …What does a Kid Reporter report? Nature Happenings! There is a special phone number to call to report what they have seen. We are talking about reporting bugs, rocks, flowers as well as the big fellas like cougars, wolves, elk, deer that they see including their location along with their name so we can give them credit for their report. We certainly will protect the children by just using their first name however, we want to include a list on all the findings right here on a kid’s report wall we are developing.
If you are interested in promoting this Kid’s Campaign with me, just let me know. You can add a comment here on this website or for privacy give me a call at 360-504-3591 Just leave a message and I will return your call within 24 hours.
Now, Ias I blog tonight I wanted to also include two other photos. They are both taken right here. in Port Angeles The photo above was taken today at Ediz Hook. Oh, the sun was out and it was so serene. Love going here at the beginning of every day. Gives me that time to just enjoy the specialness of our land and sea.
The photo below was taken this weekend. Went to Olympic National Park. The road to Hurricane Ridge was closed however, still had such a view of the Strait of Juan de Fuca. It was just awesome.
This is certainly a time of celebration for me! Tomorrow I will be going to Vancouver, B.C. to attent the Children and Nature Network Conference. Look so forward in connecting with people who are part of the mission of igniting smiles through their work with nature and children.
There will be lots to report. As I am very curious we will see what I learn and who I connect with.
Will be blogging my report on Thursday. Until then, let me hear from you. Love many of you to join me in our mission …”celebrating people who are igniting the world with their smiles” and sharing what others are doing in helping bring smiles to those who have challenges.
The Sky is the limit with this mission. Join me in sending smiles to people throughout the states and the world beyond.
Good Night. Have a great day tomorrow Spreadin’ Smiles!

Spreadin’ Smile Blog and Campaign is brought to you
Hi! Hope you are having a good week. I have had a few challenges with this site this week. You know how it is when you want to have everything go in the right direction and then it happens.
Perfection is a good thing to go for. However, as things happen and with a test of patience I now can say I am introducing Warm Creek Smilin’ Place. As I have dreams for this place I am starting out with providing some ‘Cams’ for you to enjoy. One part of our mission is to ignite smiles by bringing nature into our viewers lives. So, please click on the navigation bar and visit the first cams at Warn Creek Smilin’ Place.. Remember, they are all bringing you a live look at the land and the animals. Sometimes they escape our view however, they do come back. Trust me on that. The only one that is not live are the bears of the North.
Also, added one more item to our shop. It is a wall hanging with an attached box to hold your keys. hopefully, with a few smiley faces so when you leave your home or your office you can put some in your pocket. Just maybe you would like to make someone smile and you will be prepared. Love giving them out to children as well as adults. Fun celebrating those smiles smiles on their face that are igniting the world around them.
This week I visited the hospital to support a friend. Filled my pocket with smiley stickers and cards. Had so much fun giving out the stickers and thanking them for all they do in providing such care. One nurse was surprised to receive one. She was happy to get this little sticker. Her response, “Wait til the rest of the nurses see this. They will be jealous.” So, I reached in my pocket and gave her a whole strip and said, “Have fun with these.” I think it made her very happy to have some fun.
So, as I write to you this morning, I am indeed smilin’. Of all the projects I have created and worked on , this campaign is the most fun. Hope you will join me. If you have not subscribed to our email messages please do. Also, visit our store!
Last thought. If you have questions or comments please go to our comment page. Love to hear from you.
Oh…Happy to say this is a secure site. Just happened. So when you make a purchase in the store, your information is protected.
Have a great day and ‘Celebrate your Smile. ‘ We are blessed with many things that are free. One thing that does ignite the world is our Smile. As Mother Teresa said, “Peace begins with a Smile.” So I say..”Let’s be a part of that campaign!
Until the next time., Have a Smilin’ Time wherever you go.
Hello everyone! Happy New Year! Hope your year is so terrific you will have to pinch yourself.
The Spreadin’ A Smile Campaign project is my main mission for this year. As each day begins I always ask myself what am I going to work on today for developing new important parts to the Spreadin’ A Smile Campaign. I have to experience each step. As I realize a part is needed for the campaign I take the steps to create an answer.
Now that the small beginner smiley packet is completed, my next big question was…”How can I remember to take the smiley sticker and cards with me?’ How can a reminder be in front of all of us who join the campaign to begin the day with celebrating smiles throughout the day.
With this big question on where I look to find an answer, I decided to clear my head and go shopping for some items. Voila, I came up with the answer. .. Wall signs are so popular both at home and in the office. so, why not create a sign to hang by the entrance door at home and also for businesses offices. So I found a shutter I could use and than picked up a box to add and become the home for the smiley stickers and cards.
Voila, the “Ignite Smiles Today” Wall hanging with attached container was created. I am happy to present to you our next Spreadin’ Smile Product…. The Ignite Smiles Today Wall Sign and Smiley Sticker container. Hope you like it.
Since these signs have my brushes on it, I can paint another saying that would be better for you. Already, a person has asked for his message to read :Smiles Ignite Happiness.”
If you have any questions, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 352-250-6107.
Again…looking for more Smilin’ ideas. If you wish to share some ideas please contact me.
