Welcome to Brenda Nolen's Playground

Where all of my personalities reside! Visit my shop, read more about me, check out my blogs or visit one of my friends scattered throughout my pages. They have wonderful things to offer!

Who Am I?

That's a bit of a tricky question and one I have spent the majority of my life trying to answer. I am a mother, wife, teacher, student, creator, author, small business owner and so much more. You can read More About Me, where you will find out not only a bit about me but links to my blogs (identities). If you truly want to get to know me, sign up for my newsletter (see the sign up right over there?). That is where I share not only information about my latest projects but offer special deals to my subscribers!

On each page, I have included links to some of my friends' websites/shops. I would really appreciate if you would visit them (share the love). They are all highly talented and worth your patronage. Now, scroll down a bit for the first round of links.

Sign Up For My Newsletter

You won't regret it (and I won't send so many that your messages start bouncing). I send one a week, with the occasional extra message.

Friend Links

I have friends whose products or services are well worth your time and/or money to purchase. I only share those products or services which I have purchased (and liked).

Consult For Preparedness

You don't have to be a Doomsday Prepper to prepare for an emergency situation. Whether it is wildfires, flooding, blizzards, unemployment or an Alien Invasion, it is prudent to have all your ducks in a row. That is where Consult For Preparedness comes into play. You don't get some generic lists for you to sort through (I can't tell you how hard it is to use those generic lists when you have special needs). They provide private, personalized consultation services to assess your needs and customized plans tailored to each client and situation.

Fresh Rag - Dave Conrey
This guy, right here. Dave Conrey is the man! I first stumbled onto his podcast while looking for ways to figure out who I wanted to be when I grew up (yes, I know I'm a bit older but hey). I was hooked! I downloaded every episode I could find, so I would be able to listen off-line. It was through him, his guests, and just a few others that I came to be where I am today: happy, healthy, and determined! I cannot stress this enough: if you are a creative in any way, listen to this man (and buy his books).

DiggIt Prospecting Supply

The family has a long history both in mining and in selling prospecting supplies to miners. William McNall is now continuing the family heritage with a small mining supply company for both the small claim miner and the recreation prospector.
