Raskis says:
I look innocent don't I? But when you look at the picture below you'll see how bad I can be! I....and my fellow house mates have been BANISHED from the Art Room when mom (Lynda) leaves! She kicks us out and closes the door! She even wakes us up as we snoze in the window to make us leave, how Rude!

Lynda says:
You're darn right you ain't staying in the room when I'm gone! Look at that mess...and this picture isn't showing all of it! Paintbrushes, packing peanuts, pens, mail,scrubbies, beads, gourds... even down the hall stuff was scattered everywhere! They....oh I am sure it was Raskis, even chewed the sequins off my flip-flops!
Spoiled kitties don't like me being out of the house so much with summer being here!

Works in Progress!

I got down to work! I did get something done! Has been crazy around here....I guess that keeps things interesting!

Managed to get these base coated and painted! One of the hardest things to figure out is what color to paint each of them...since I have no idea what they will become!

I'll work on them more today since it looks to be wet and gloomy! But I know me....I'll go out and move a plant between paint drying... then I'll get lost as to what I need to be doing! I am easly side tracked! Cats and kittens to feed, birdfeeders to fill...... house to clean, laundry to do.......

See I got side tracked again!
This is my artroom window where I sit and create! I put up new pretty purple glittery curtains! Friendship/Witches Glass balls hang amoung about 9 crystal/prisms. In the picture they are hard to see. When the sun hits just right color floods my world!... hmmm I need to climb up there and fix that top right side......

Monday already!

Monday already??!!!
Weekends just go by so fast!
I finshed my Saturday (in my last post) with a Bon fire and food! After finishing some pesky undone projects that were started and not finished a Bon fire with some family and friends is always a welcome way to end a day. Played some yard games until dark, sat around a roaring fire and cooked out and relaxed!
Now it's time to get something done...and wait until the next weekend!

I just listed this wonderful necklace over on Etsy.... I did have some thoughts of keeping it for myself! I love it!

Here's a peek of a dangle/bangle Pretty in Black's over at Etsy too!

So here I set...waiting for the weekend! Enjoy life it is short!

Beautiful Day!

What a beautiful morning! Woke up to sunshine and birdsong! A nice cool morning breeze coming in the bedroom window... breath in, enjoy!
I am so torn on what to do today! Part of me wants to paint. The other part knows I have 'other' things to do! But when I went out onto the back deck and these water lily blooms welcomed me...I knew what had to be done! I need to get some outside things finished. Planting a few more things (oh that is never ending), moving a plant here or there. It's like painting with a plants! I need to get a few things done because I am in a pond and garden show this coming July. Monies from ticket sales go to Akron Childrens Hospital.

Wanted to share with you some of my excape from the rat race! This is not this years picture, but one from a couple years ago. Some things have changed but not too much.... more grown up now. I'll show more pictures later when things start to bloom! This is my Windchime garden. I have chimes tucked in all over hanging overhead. I just love the sounds!!!!

New Hauntings!

Last night I listed these wooden candle sticks on Ebay! Come on over and check 'em out.... you do know Halloween is less then 150 days away!!!!!

Here's my Haunted Birdhouse! Bats fly within the trees, a dark star hovers over the town...... spooky!

Now as I promised myself....I must get something done in this artroom! It needs a cleaning...if something else doesn't side track me. I am very good at getting sidetracked!

Work in progress * WIP

Here's something I'll share with you! I felt like I should post something. So here it is!

This is where it begins, well almost. This is one section of my gourd arbor (last year). This is where these gourds begin life...

We've skipped a few steps here..well we skipped a year!
The gourds have grown, dried, cleaned, base coated, some painting...and started a new life....a life of a Haunted Swamp Halloween gourd!

After many hours, sometimes days... in the end this is what they became!

Mondays thoughts


What is it? Or what is it not?
The definition of Friendship: Companions or peers with whom one has common interests, emotional bonds, and social relationships.

Lots of people have relitives, some are friends some are not. People work with friends, some aren't friends.
There are many degrees of friendship. Casual friend, close friend, best friend, false friend..... on and on....
Sometimes you'll find friendship means more to you then it does to another 'friend'. Some put conditions on their friendships others don't. Some friendships last for a day, a week, a year, some forever.
Some friendships are even toxic!!!!
Being able to trust and relax with a friend is a big part of friendship. There are even friends that you may not see for long periods of time, and the relationship remains intact. Friends know when the other is in trouble or has a problem just by the way they say Hello. True friendship is selfless.
I may tell you you are full of poo ,but I am still your friend! We may not alway agree, but I will still be your friend.
Many people may have many friends. But... how many of them are their true friends? Really think about that one!
Although friends may not be forever, and they may not be together in the end, the memories of a true friendship will last for eternity.

Nice Friendship Quote : "A true friend is someone who thinks that you are a good egg even though he knows that you are slightly cracked." -- Bernard Meltzer.
