Terri Barfield Craig says, “Camilla and Team TLC’s journey and life lessons, as shared in this book, will inspire you to look beyond limitations and gain new perspectives on what it means and how it feels to be “different”. It will change the way you see life in general. Not only is this book a phenomenal tool and resource for those with special needs children/adults in their lives, but it includes many nuggets of wisdom for the rest of us as well. I highly recommend it!” ….
Thank you tons Terri!!!

“This collection of free-verse poetry is vivid and heart-felt. At times it seemed like a book of affirmations; at others a meditation on life. Even more poems reminded me of magic spells, sending love and good wishes out into the world. I enjoyed reading the explanations that many of the poems carried too. All in all, Words of Alchemy by Camilla Downs is a magical read.” – Fi Phillips

… and she said to herself, “You wrote a book … you wrote and published a book …. you wrote and published a book in under ONE year … you wrote and published a book in under ONE year and have sold about 300 copies of that book ….” this is what she said to herself …. Note to self …. Smiles and Hugs to any friends who need or want them …

I’m collecting quilt pieces!! However, I haven’t suddenly learned how to quilt! These are for a story. My story – A memoir.
This will take a year or longer and may be more than one book depending on how I go about this. And this is why I’m collecting these quilt pieces … To help craft a pattern.
For anyone who has known me from birth through childhood, teenage years through now ….
If I’ve ever written to you (on paper or digital), would you mind sharing that with me.
If I shared a story with you, would you mind re-sharing with me?
Any times we shared together that stand out for you?
Did we interact with one another during a major shift or life event I was experiencing? Does something stand out for you? (Or was I there for you in some way during a major shift or life event?)
And anything else you feel moved to share … You can post here, message me or email me (first and last name at gmail). Thanks so much everyone for your contribution to the finished quilt!! xoxo
