Another Day in Paradise

For those of you who do not know, May is the start of the rainy season on Florida. I love the rain and the thunderstorms here are spectacular. Usually the morning time is clear or partly cloudy and by noon the clouds roll in...many of the homes here have what are called Florida Rooms- basically a large enclosed porch. Some can be very simple with only screened walls while others hold the pool and still others, like the one in the house I am in, have tinted vinyl-type windows that can be opened all the way to the floor level with the screens on the other side. This one also has an air conditioner, couches, TV and a large craft area. It is the most lived in area of the home. When it rains, the metal roof makes it sound like a thundering herd of elephants are passing by overhead. This is what I will miss once I finally get moved.
Yes, I am having a difficult season right now, but I know the end of that is coming and  I will move on as I always do- with a positive outlook and hope for the future.
I am reminded that many people have things much worse going on in their lives, and I am grateful for the blessings in mine.
Speaking of blessings, today my daughter got married. It was a surprise to everyone, but she made it to 27 before taking the plunge and I wish her  nothing but joy and happiness.
here is a zinnia for you all...

go fund me account established

Ok, so out of desperation I have started a go fund me account. I need to have a surgery and my medical insurance and surgeon are in Nebraska. I cannot keep waiting for the empty promises of the "friend" to come to fruition. If your heart is moved to help me here is the link https://www.gofundme.com/pu65b2-move-me-home

still in Florida

So, I was supposed to be back in Omaha weeks ago as I mentioned before. I am still waiting for the promised vehicle and assistance moving. I am frustrated and upset. I keep trying to maintain a positive attitude, but it is becoming more and more difficult. I need to take some kind of action, but feel stuck....argh.
I have overcome worse situations than this and I WILL get past this as well...

new art for you

Can't believe it

Hi Guys-
The reason I have not posted recently is because  I have everything packed for the move that was supposed to have happened a few weeks ago...If it does not happen today, I will be flying out tomorrow. Anyway, it is a long story and once I get home to Omaha, I will 'splain it all. Here is an image or two for you...

New Digi Art!

Hello All, Here is some new digi art for you...I am all packed and ready to move back to Omaha. I have enjoyed living in Florida with my grandson and family, but am looking forward to being back in Omaha with my bff Rose and Valerie, too. I should be there by this time next week and will make a concerted attempt to post on a regular basis now that I seem to be getting things straightened out.

January 9.2018

It has again been a long time since I posted here...shame on me. I have gone through a lot in the last few years,,,divorced, moved across country more than once, lost most of my belongings (more than once), and more. But I am still here and have learned many lessons along the way.

I am not a new me or a better me, just an older (hopefully) wiser me. I have done a lot of soul searching and have figured out some things. Growth is painful folks- but if it were not, maybe the lessons we learn would be easily forgotten.

As  the new year dawned, I realized that I had allowed some of the things I loved most about me to fall by the wayside- this blog, active participation in the artistic community, alone time, doing videos...and that I wanted to regain those things. I may not be a consummate artist or even an extremely talented one- but I love what I do and am pleased to share it with others.
When I first started this blog, I gave digital images away for free. I met people and interacted. I expressed myself as I chose and let this be my little corner of the world.
Through pressure from others, I tried to make this blog be a money maker- and I think now as I did then that it was a mistake. I used to enjoy doing my artwork and blogging for fun- so...I am going to see if I can get back to doing it again with that intention. FUN.

I may not have much to post for the next couple of weeks as I am away from home until January 21. (I now live in Florida near my daughter and grandson). But I do plan to share pictures of the artwork I am doing while at my buddy Rose's house. We have moved a table into the living room and are doing "frozen day art". Her craft room is in a converted garage with no heat, so the only items we have to play with are the ones I could grab and carry into the living room. We have actually made some great stuff...

happy saint patricks day

hello all. I have been working pretty hard at getting inventory built up to start doing craft fairs. I have imported some items from Africa, through my foster son, and I made a huge order through Uline to get all the items I need to get started. I am still a ways away from being able to go to craft fairs...but I am on my way. I am feeling a bit overwhelmed with all I have to do.And I am scared to begin....but I know I have to just get the ball rolling...or else I will never accomplish my goal

2-7-17

Sometimes coming up with a title for a blog post is even more than my tiny brain can manage...I received a package from my foster son  (who lives in Ghana now). He sent me 45 African Artisan made beaded necklaces to sell here in the States.I will add those to the items I am already prepping for my store.
There are some financial roadblocks to tackle, but I am working every day toward success. Here is a free background image for you.

Far and Away

After a long absence, I have decided to begin blogging again. The last few years have been full of challenges and changes. I am now single and living in Florida. I have not made any new digital images in some time, although I have been designing stencils and selling them. I am also weaving rugs and purses. I do art journaling now as well as canvases. I have not made a card in ages!
I think I have evolved in my creativity and moved into different areas of expression...but who knows, maybe digital images are in my future again...  In the meantime, take a look at the stencil page and check back often, as I have tons more to upload...
