Monster Treats for a Voice-Over Pro’s Halloween Fun

With all of the Halloween office parties and neighborhood gatherings lined up, I thought today would be a great day to share a fun treat, so you can focus more on your clever costume design than on what to bring to the festivities. These fun treats are both tasty and super easy to make. I used BooBerry and Cocoa Krispies in these treats, and my nieces agreed that the Cocoa Krispies were their absolute fave. Of course, who doesn’t like a classic?

But you can use most cereals here: Krispies, Fruity Pebbles, a variety of flakes, etc. Just keep in mind how you want your monsters to look in the end. Trix could be fun!

Easy Homemade Dinner Rolls

Daily planning and multi-tasking are as vital to a voice-over momma as hot tea is to a set of strained vocal chords. We’re busy getting the kids fed and off to school, marketing our business, recording awesome audio for awesome clients, cleaning house, paying bills, recording more audio, running errands, hugging those kiddos when they get home, and prepping dinner, with more mic-time laced throughout the day.

On one of those more hectic days, dinner can easily get moved toward the bottom of the priority list. After all, pizza is only 10-digits and 45 minutes away, right? Continue reading “Easy Homemade Dinner Rolls”

10 Winnie-the-Pooh Quotes Every VO Parent Must Trust

One of my favorite times with Glen is story time. I’ve been reading to him since he was inside my belly. And now, his little face lights up every time I open a book. One of our favorites is Winnie-the-Pooh. For being a bear with “very little brain,” Pooh’s words have impact. Every time I read them, I find yet another nugget of wisdom that I tuck straight into my parenting cap. These are my favorites:

The Importance of Power Conditioning in the Voice-Over World

Houston spent much of this past week under water. Violent lightning splintered the sky and thunder cracked. Creeks and bayous rose, drowning the streets and flooding homes. Families fortunate enough to have a second level, carried everything upstairs to avoid getting drenched in the cold, murky waters. Some people didn’t make it. Some horses didn’t either. It was a rough week, certainly.

Our neighborhood seemed to be one of the only in Cypress that did not take in a lot of water. We did lose power several times over the week, but I am so grateful that is the only thing we lost. And it’s times like this when I am so happy to have a power conditioner on my side.  Continue reading “The Importance of Power Conditioning in the Voice-Over World”

Where the Grass is Greenest

On a whim, Mike and I hauled our little family to a nearby town to snap a family photo in a field of Texas bluebonnets. For years, we’ve been watching parents enjoy this annual springtime tradition; and this year, with baby in tow, we joined in. Glen was fantastic, full of smiles and fun. It was so nice capturing this sweet moment because, well, our days are not always this calm and lovely.
