The Fourth is Coming!!!

That holiday is coming up. You know-the one with family picnics and cookouts, sweating, bugs, screaming children. All that fun family stuff. I try to by-pass all that. Now don't get me wrong, I love my country and celebrating independence and even fireworks....but that whole other side of the coin-nah.

How will I spend my Fourth? I will be buzzing down the interstate on the way to the airport at about 3 a.m. I'm taking a friend to catch a plane to Texas. She will be visiting her mom there. I'll make a grande iced coffee (no Starbucks in the boonies here) and put it in the fridge the night before. There it will await me for my return home 'cause I will most likely forget it. 3 a.m. Man, that's early. Good thing I love ya, Janie!

Blogging today

I have made a pact with myself. I need to be involved. In order to be involved, I have to have some sort of action. Here's the plan:
1. On each of my yahoo groups, I will post once a week-if you know me AT ALL, you know this is a stretch for me. I'm a prize-winning lurker. I can lurk with the best....But those days are over for me. I am making a stand and coming out of lurk-dom.

2. There will be blog posts-no more of this once a year nonsense. Ideally-a couple times a week. Reality will most likely be once a week also-til I get the hang of it. I used to only add when I had art to share-now I will post if I think anyone wants to read it or not.....Too bad I can't add a shot of caffeine in here with the posts.

3. I will post about more than just art. Who knows? You may make my blog.....stay tuned.

back again

I'm back again after a long hiatus. Been over a year since I blogged. Had not been doing much art, but am curently back at it.

These days I am busy working on charms for a swap. I am also making similar ones to make a matching set necklace and bracelet.

I also am working on a new tag booklet and my online yahoo group is following along to make the tags. This current tag book is in the theme of pink and purple.

Also included a cute photo of Jasper.

This is my little precious_Jasper. We got him for Emily, but he quickly became my baby. Em was cleaning up the nest her dog made under the table and naturally Jasper had to be in the midst of all the excitement. That's my baby.
