What The Hell is this ? And some new plans.

Well this is a very bad message board. Ok so it has a magnet at the top I guess that does not make it a message board. What it is is just a crazy item I kept working on well past the point of WTF till finally some how I sensed it was done. Every once in a while I make some thing so blindingly bad that it makes me laugh just to walk by it. This is one of those times.
So I hope seeing this makes you burst into laughter as well.
As for my new plans well it has occurred to me yet again there is so much more I want to do in the world so I am going to cut back on my online muck abouts and focus on the things I want to do. I am going to give me self more time to write here as well. I miss posting more regular.
good night and giggles

Saturday Morning And Allusion

We got up at 6 this morning. I was up till almost 2 but when I saw this sunrise I had to come watch. I have been working on relaxing and soaking up some good energy so when I was watching this lovely sunrise I thought I should get some pictures of my new paintings.
I loved the light so much I took this photo from inside my sun porch. Well as you can see the curtain looks beige. In truth it is white as a bone. So this got me thinking about how often some thing will look one way but actually be another. It can still be beautiful all the same but that also got me thinking about which is the allusion. Then I thought I might need more coffee.
have a great weekend

Gratitude Wednesday And a How to


well the above is a very simple ornament you could make it way more festive. I made it out of a little chip wood oval, paint and a couple of jewelry bits. Now I made it super simple because I am trying to get some very plain ornaments for a small tree we put in out bedroom. This bear was on a old gift card package from a store. My Grandmother had written on it so I was having trouble figuring out what to do with it. I also loved the bear. So I made this out of it. I think she would like it and you could do this with bits of any cool paper keepsake. on the back is the part where she wrote my hubbys name and hers. Took 5 minutes and I love it.
Now for the gratitude list.
1. I am grateful that no matter what happens in this world the good the bad the bland what ever my husband has been with me in this life. Can you guess he got pretty sick this week and worried me. I am sure he is fine but it still is just a reminder of how much I adore him.
2. That my dad is getting ready for another birthday. He is crazy and drives me mad. The man thinks the computer is magic and is pretty sure I have fallen and died any time he calls and I do not answer by the 3rd ring. But again I adore him too.
3. For all the wonderful people from the critiques to the helping hands and the wonderful fans and customers that I have gotten in my little art world goals. No matter how much I paint till my hands feel like they want to fall off or work on a little craft till my fingers are full of needle pokes. I love this and am grateful for any time I get to spend doing it.
4. For the fact this horrible heat wave appears to be gone. Neither me nor my electric bill had any love for that crap.
5. For music. Right now I have Billy Swan, Abba, Abagail Washburn and about a million other songs at my finger tips. I love it.
So what are you grateful for?
love

Gratitude Wednesday My heart is over flowing


This has been a great few weeks. Just when the summer heat wave slump was hitting me full force things started cropping up. I got into Strangefolk art festival which I adore. Then Bronwyn contacted me to be in her exhibit which is like a freaking dream. To top it off I have had 3 sales in the last 2 days and one request from a person whom I drool over their work to possibly trade. S0 here is a link to the show it starts tomorrow. If you live near Brooklyn, NY and would like to go. I know there will be lots of other artist there some I am new to and some I have adored for some time. So here is a link so you can see whats what http://bluemoonbrooklyn.com/home/2010/8/2/my-etsy-art-collection-on-august-12th.html
Now on to the Gratitude list.
1. I am grateful that this heat wave appears to be heading to a end. I would really like it if the last thing I say is not "It is so Fu@#*** hot"
2. I am grateful very grateful for the opportunity and chances that have come to me the last few years from Regretsy to Etsy to Strangefolk to Bronwyn and many other to many to mention. I know I can do a lot by myself if I work really hard but truly am so grateful for the fact they took the time to work with me.
3. I am grateful that my fat old dogs stopped panting after I gave them a super short hair cut. They look awful but they are cooler.
4. I am grateful for my sister who is a little older than me and has always been my role model of you can do any thing just start working at it. I see here now trained and doing composites for the police taking classes getting certified to do post mortem reconstruction on heads. Yes apparently creepy runs in the family but I am so grateful to have had her around all these years and hope to do so for many more.
5. For my family from my nieces and nephews to my husband to my pets. They all just make this world a fun place to be.
so what are you grateful for this week?

Gratitude Wednesday

Hi all this is my painting called the tomato lover. I painted this thinking about my grand and the 1000 other very senior ladies I remember as a kid who wore little house dresses and stockings at their knees because they had water on their legs and about a million other little issues. They never let that keep them from those gardens though. I love that determination and wanted to do my best to show it.
So I have tons tons I say to be grateful for.
1. I am grateful a woman who I have been a fan of Bronwyn Keenan bought not one but 2 of my paintings to put in the first exhibit she has chosen to curate in some time. I have been screaming and howling like a goof for a week now. The show is being supported by Etsy as well and will be going to Berlin later. This will be the first time one of my paintings has made it that far for a show of any kind. Here is a link if you would like to see the artist in it. http://bluemoonbrooklyn.com/
2. I am grateful for my sweet husband who never stops trying. He decided to do some thing sweet and made me breakfast in bed one day. Now he had some issues which made it hilarious a small grease fire and some thing bad happened to my coffee creamer but hey after 8yrs of marriage the fact he still does sweet stuff makes me adore him and my stinky kitchen.
3. I am grateful for the fact I sewed some thing and it actually came out looking as planned. Sweet Jesus I never thought that would happen.
4. That my pets and me are all just enjoying the heat wave in our house with fans and AC. Air conditioning is very special to me at the moment.
5. For bad movies, music all that stuff. It all makes for great inspiration.
So as always talk to me people what are you grateful for?
