Almost done!!

Hello All,

I am totally geeked at the fact that I am almost finished with my painting, yay! Waaaaay back a few months ago I posted another thread showing the begining stages of this. Anyways, if you can't tell these are 3 separate canvas to make one picture of this woman in peaceful thought.

I've gotten 'rave reviews' so far and all I mostly have left to do is paint the hair a nice deep purple or fusha.. I havent decided yet.. I will more than likely do the deep purple though. Of course I gotta touch up the face and smooth out some places and then it will be ready to sell. You can tell me what you think if you like good or bad. Well its time to paint while I'm in the mood. Ciao!

Red is the new Black


Although I'm feeling dead tired, here I am still up writing like an a$$ clown! Oh, well I felt the need to write. Really my mind is trying to avoid thinking about something stressful and this is the alternative. The show must go on...

I went into Pier 1, one of my favorite stores for home decor and such on one of my lunch breaks last week and saw a few wonderful pieces that I am coveting. I can't even tell you how great it is to have an hour lunch break, but anyhoo.. I was milling around the clearance section and saw this 'jar'. My kitchen has red accents and I thought it would go in there perfectly. It wouldn't do to shabby of a job as a cookie jar either.

So I'm touching everything that I see that I like as I continue walking. (I do this simply because my mother never let me touch anything when we went into stores, in fear that I would break something) I then round the corner to find this painting.

It has a Andy Warhol feel with the repetition of the figure, but I like it. A lot... Very peaceful and I'm drawn to the red for some reason. After Monday I realized that my new color for the summer is gonna be red. I feel a good connection to it right now, and some believe that it is the color that helps to keep you grounded. Two of my co-workers even told me that I looked really good in red! Yay, for me, ^5.

Yeah.. that's it for now. Ciao!

Fish in the Sewer

Wassupper peoples,

Out of all places, when I was leaving Wal-Mart I saw this...

Although I'm not a fan of the way fish look, (especially catfish :::shudders:::) I just thought that it was awesome that the sewer cover had some sort of art on it, rather that it just saying 'sewer'.. Idk, maybe I'm just special but I thought that that was great and it put a smile on my face.

It's nice when you find surprising things like that and it brightens your day. What small thing have you noticed that has shed some sunshine on your day?

It is done

Hey there peoples,

I'm sure that I've mentioned that I'm kinda getting into yarn projects and whatnot like crocheting and knitting. Well I've just finished my first crochet project. Really I stole the idea from one of Beloved friends. We were visiting with her one wknd and she had a hoop sitting in her living room with earrings hanging on it. For those of you who dont know what a hoop is, it is a the wooden circle thing you see old women use when that are embordering a piece of fabric. It holds the fabic tight and in place so that you may work easily on it. (or at least that's what my mommy told me)

So I decided to make my own verison, simply because I have an addiction to jewelry and such and my jewelry boxes are overflowing! Sad I know, but what can you do? So I basically made a large square and hung it on the wall with push pins and then proceeded to hang my earrings and necklaces on it. Idk why I hadnt thought of doing that before because it is a genius idea! Now Im moving on to my next project which will be a fabulously wide headband for when I'm having a horrific fuzzy hair day.

Even tho doing this is kinda old lady-ish I really enjoy it and it's relaxing. Hopefully I get good enough to start selling some things soon and make some 'side hustle' money. Ok that's all kiddies. Ciao!

So I've been breaking the law for the last couple of days or so. My car tags are expired. Don't shake your head at me.. As always I procrastenated and waited till the end of the month to get my emissions done and then failed because of my engine. Boooooo to emissions. I hate getting it done.

See I tried to be sneaky about the whole thing. My check engine light as been on for oh... um... a little over a year or so. I thought it was no big deal because it would go on and then it would be gone like a month later. In my mind it was some sort of glitch. So I had Beloved check my codes with his car computer reader thingy (great device) and clear my codes that way I could get my emissions done with no check engine light on. So I go get it done and the man takes my card to charge me $25.00 (insane! what happened to $10.00?) and then has the nerve to tell me my car failed!! AND how about the only reason I failed was because the codes in the computer of my car were cleared away. So in other words...... if your codes have been cleared by you or from having your car worked on, emissions aint playing around and they will fail your a$$! lol... I laugh now... but it was soooo not funny at the time.

So I stopped driving my car and did the carpool thing to work. But to my surprise, someone in maintience (punks) walked around checking all of the cars to see who's tags expired so that they could get towed! So I had a nice little orange sticker in the middle of my window to indicate to tow. That kinda pissed me off only because if I had driven my car I wouldn't have even had that sticker. But my Beloved, the sweetness that he is, scraped it off for me.

At least a funny occurance did happen. When I was riding to work with my friend we saw this guy jogging down the street. Let me describe... Imagine if you will an old man with clown hair, (you know.. bald on top and hair on sides) buff and sweaty w/no shirt, SHORT shorts I'm talking about barely covering the butt, and some sort of dirty white fabric tied around his head like he was the Karate Kid or something, tennis shoes and long old man socks!!?!?! It was not a pretty sight people.. And since then I have seen him almost everyday going to work. I tried to take a picture, but we were laughing too hard and moving to fast. Lol, oh well. Ok, that's it and more updates later. Ciao!
