No art today...

Tuesday, November 29, 2005

This day is flying, I've been so busy... I just wanted to type in a bit of something on my blog. :)

I was mentioned on Jorge's blog Oop. He's in Madrid Spain, I'm immensely flattered. He said my animals are weird. I love it! haha!

Hope everyone had a lovely Thanksgiving and ate like pigs. :) I know I had a lovely Turkey day... This painting now lives with my friend MD.

Now I'm ready to get in the Christmas spirit... :) Put up the tree and all that jazz. And the lights... looooove the Christmas lights.

I had a dream last night that I was hanging out with my friend R. He's been gone for 4 years now, I can't believe it. I miss you R, you were a wonderful, sweet guy with a great laugh.

Now I think I'll tell you about the Christmas movies I'm going to watch to get in the holiday spirit:

National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation
Home for the Holidays -- about a woman's dysfunctional family
Christmas Story -- a kid wants a Red Ryder bb gun for x-mas, old school, but hilarious... a lot of great moments. :)
Donovan's Reef -- This is an old John Wayne movie set in Hawaii

That's all that come to mind... Any suggestions??

This is a painting that I made and it lives with my friend TH now. Frogs are funny. :)

Went to coffee with a sweet friend of mine yesterday and then had dinner with another good friend. Good day all around.

I'm really excited for Thanksgiving. It's partly seeing everyone, family and friends, but it's also the food. I love turkey, mashed potatoes and gravy, green bean casserole, stuffing and pumpkin pie. Sometimes I feel like I could live on it, probably not really, but every now and then it sounds like a little slice of heaven...

Check this out:

Orriettacat did some cute renderings of Hansel and Gretel-- Guess Gretel is peeved. heh heh... :)

Anne Julie at Deviant Art makes sweet stuff...

And I love this painting and this painting by Krecha at Deviant Art... Especially the bird one... I'm all into birds lately.

And this one and this one from Sanja at Deviant Art. Apparently I'm into bats lately as well...

Scrub the deck you scalliwag! Arghhh--hoot!

Happy Monday everyone! Hope you all had great weekends, I know I did. Too short as usual, but oh well...

Can you believe that Thanksgiving is this week?? Unbelievable how time flies. Yeesh.

Can you also believe that I have moved 19 times in the past 10 years?? 15 new places (as some of the moves were back home--like in college and etc.) wow.

That brings total moves to a whopping 25. In 3 different states and 7 different towns so some of the moves were in the same town at least.

I went to Conneticut with a friend several years ago and we met a boat maker who'd never been out of sight of land on a boat. And he'd never been further west (driving or otherwise--not talking boats any more) than like Detroit or something wild like that. I can't even imagine. Different strokes for different folks eh?

Here's a painting I did for an Art Festival. I sold it to some lady who thought it was hilarious and made a similar one for my friend Mo. :)

Went swing dancing last night, it was a lot of fun... I gotta say I was reluctant to go for whatever reason, but had a great time as usual. The Rumble Jetts were playin' up a storm and our instructor Ben was a dancin' fool. There were a lot of new people there for the class. Too fun! :)

Tonight I have a busy evening of crafting ahead of me. I signed up to do a craft swap through and I have to send it out very soon. I had every intention of not procrastinating, but the move threw me off. ;) That's my story and I'm Stickin' to it!

Happy Thursday everyone!

I love this painting... I couldn't really tell you why... Maybe it's the bat? Maybe it's the bird lookin' down at the bat. "Ummm hello, this is a birds only meeting." It really escapes me, I just love it. :)

The unpacking continues, although I have made some decent progress. My sis-in-law brought me a bunch of plants last night to watch for her while she and my bro and my fat little nephew Buzz are away. It's nice to have so much greenery.

No fish casualties so far, although one of the Von Rio Tetras is swimming at a 45 degree angle. Maybe he just needed a new perspective on life.

I am loving this picture, what a cutie pie!!

Well, tonight I'm going swing dancing, unpacking be darned. :) I'm getting closer to having a homey little place and I'm lovin' it. I have a big box of stuff for the salvation army which is a lovely, liberating feeling... WHEW!!!

The Moving Saga Nears the End

Tuesday, November 8, 2005

Well, I'm done MOVING my stuff, now I just need to unpack it all and buy a couch.... :)

I'm digging my new place. It's cute and warm (unlike my last apartment. I froze last winter and spent any time at home wearing many layers, scarves and gloves-- my roommate was always makin' fun of me. *hmph*)

I moved the fish tank over last night. I hope that I won't have any casualties due to the move...

More moving??

Monday, November 7, 2005

Well, it's Monday again folks. :) I'm nearly done moving, still have to get the fish tank. Then all I have to do is unpack. UGH! I'm planning on donating a bunch o' stuff to the Salvation Army, cuz I don't need all that STUFF!

Now about this ring... I don't know why, but I think it's just lovely. I know, it's REALLY gaudy and quite spendy ($2,800) and I wouldn't wear it because it would probably get caught on stuff... but I do love it... *sigh*

Went to C's bonfire Sat. night and had loads of fun. D had a telescope and we saw Mars, Saturn, O'Brien nebula, Andromeda Galaxy and the Chicken Leg constellation (unless that was a joke, but it did look like a chicken leg. :) Hats off to the bucket!

TGIF! :)

So today I thought I'd put Margot's Plushrooms as my image. I like her stuffed animals and her art, it makes me chuckle. :)

I am still moving.... *sigh* Can't wait to settle into the new crib!

I'm going to a bonfire tomorrow night, yay! I love bein' outdoors. Have I mentioned that I really dig mountain biking? Not so you'd notice, cuz I haven't been in ages, but what a fun sport. I gotta get on that. I even bought some fleece lined bike pants. I'm all set! Bike geek, computer geek, book worm. wow, i'm cool.. ha!

There'll be no swing dancing for me this evening... Gotta continue with the move. Blech! :)

This is a painting I did not too long ago... I realized I hadn't posted any of my art in a little while and it seemed like it was time.

Today's picture is a illustration done by
Monica Calvo of Eendar. She does these cool little clay animals too.

I started moving into a new apartment last night... It's weird to be moving to a new place, but I am going to enjoy the extra space for crafting! Moving really is a pain and I've moved way too many times in the past few years... *sigH* :) Ah well, it'll be over soon...
