Did you know that with Gary's "map" of where we all live,,,,you can click on one persons name...hit Satellite,zoom in and see where they live AND how their terrain/country differs from where you live? You can even put the little man on your street location to look directly at your house! Is this stalking??? LOL! I've gone all over the world to see the different cultures and hillsides and to see the beauties we don't have here... It's amazing! Only exception to the rule are those who put… Continue

Well...here is the latest in my twisted life. To those who don't know me,I pop in once in awhile here to make a smile or even some laughter. (That's Art right?) Anyhow, I've had some really terrible nights of sleeping and the before bed challenge was just that...a challenge! In the last month I have had X-rays and bloodwork to rule out Leukemia and to ensure my white count is normal. It was! Yip Pee!! I've been having some major back & hip problems which has left me only being able to do… Continue

My family time comes before my "art time" and I have to tip my hat to those of you who can fit both in and still run a "normal" life and household without interrupting your family time or spouse time.......I'll go days doing family stuff before "art" stuff or posting it on-line.I LOVE "Crafty Stuff" but was told it's not allowed in LMM under your "Artsy status"....And that got me thinking....I'm not good enough nor do I fit in with… Continue

The sky is darkening
much like my heart...
my heart, ever beating it's brilliant
colored red waves...
waves that rush through the dark...
dark within it's being...
dark within my soul...
A storm on the horizon
is fueling the bitterness
I need to make a choice.
I need to entomb my wretched plague… Continue

After seeing Kathy McElroy's pic I got a dumb brainstorm.....What if we held a monthly or kept it as a blog "If you want my crap" section on here? Posted pics of our wares,traded addys,,all is FREE,If you need the other party to pay postage,have a Paypal account or something......yadda,yadda...like an ATC trade?? I have LOTS of stuff that I never use and see someone else's posting/assemblage, etc....saying to myself..."Wow! They would LOVE to have my yada,yada's!!" So...what do you all think???

Ok-so I have been working all week at making fimo-sculpey-pendants...I am NOW awaiting more Silver chains for these...I have gotten my "pasta/clay" machine and LOVE it!!!! I have some braided leather necklace cords but not all of the colors go with what I have done and am buying some "ribbon necklaces" also that I think will work other than the silver chains. So, for now...I am posting the one pic because not only was it in my "Feature" ...My kitchen from where I work the most is soooo 70's… Continue

Ok Ok...We all poop,fart and at some point...don't cringe now...pick our nose! I will admit this! I was so enthralled with posting pics after my griddle/crayon stunt and answering emails on here and posting to my blog that I forgot to wash my hands which were pretty much covered in dried on blue acrylic paint! But wait! Our woodstove is on overfire due to the extreme cold temps here and it has caused my nose to dry out horribly yet run at the same time!! So while typing away and picking at my… Continue

NEVER ever use a hot glue gun around something you LIKE! Then again...If I hadn't ,I wouldn't have come up with this idea!
Make sure you have more than just the "strangely named what you think are basic colored paints on hand" because they are NOT colors as they seem,they are EVIL!...because chances are,you have NO clue what mixes good to get the ideal colors you have in YOUR mind! Hint...get a color mixing chart and some… Continue

Hello all,I thought I would stop for a break and blog about my last few days. I got a phone call from my Brother Larry Friday night informing me that our brother Jeremy had passed away very unexpectedly and that the police were still with our Mom. It was not an auto accident or suicide. He just turned 39 on Halloween. A friend became concerned when he knew that Jer was home, but didn't answer the door.So he called the police for a welfare check.My brother is a severe alcoholic and had been… Continue

After reading Gray,Lisa and Jay's blog...I feel I have more than ever to be thankful for! I haven't had to go through the turmoil of any of them! In fact...my life has been pretty darn good despite it's ups and downs which haven't compared to theirs.I feel very fortunate that my husband is always there for me and my children are all in good health.So...I may not be able to afford my dreams with art and painting...but I have done what I can with what I can get my hands onto.

I'm the curious type so I googled the "Flying Goats". I used to help raise goats as a teen and know they can do some real strange crap!
Goats on trees are found mostly only in Morocco. The goats climb them because they like to eat the fruit of the argan tree, which is similar to an olive. Farmers actually follow the herds of goats as they move from tree to tree. Not because it is so strange to see goats in trees and the farmers like to point and stare, but because the fruit of the tree… Continue
