Almost Forgot!

Want to show you a picture of my (almost) finished series of abstracts! Red was my first, and my inspiration for Orange, Yellow, Green, Teal, Royal, Purple, Fuchsia, and Silver. I know, I know, my very original names leave you speechless, right? LOL! Acrylics on 12 x 12 canvas! ENJOY!

Things are the way they are

Am I the only one who ever feels as though life is crashing down on them? Of course I'm not. I know full well that our trials are exactly that, our own. But wouldn't it be nice to have a pity party for every rough time we encounter? Heck yes! So I say... long live the pity party! Lol I hope you all have a really great day!


Sorry for my absence

Really, I truly am sorry for my absence. Wish I had a good excuse but I really don't. Life is hard and things get in the way. Then you find good things, just to have other not so good thin gs stand in your way. Its the way life rolls you sometimes. This year has been like that for me.

These are some pictures of art I've recently done, photography from a recent trip I was able to take back east, and some digital works as well. I do actually have quite a bit of art to post. I'm doing a boutique in November and starting up my own website in the weeks to come. Wish me luck! I hope you like them.


I'm another year older...

So, yesterday was my 27th birthday. It was a wonderful day filled with phone calls, emails, online chats, and visits from well wishers, lots of family & even more friends. So, thank you to everyone who remembered, it certainly made my day extra special.
I do have to admit it though... 30 now seems like the giant elephant lurking in the corner. Now, it's not that I'm worried about turning 30 & it being the end of my life as I know it or anything ludicrous like that, I'm just very aware of it. It's as though I'm suddenly sitting here going... wow I'm 27, what the heck have I done with my life? Where has it gone? Could I have done more? Why am I now in my LATE twenties... sniffles. Oh well.
Sorry to lay that bummer on you! :) LOL. Well, it's been said so I can move forward. Hope you all have a wonderful day!


A long absence

Sorry all. I haven't been too diligent with the blogs lately... my bad. I've been up to my eyeballs with end-of-the-school-year activities, Girl Scout trips and parties, Church work, camp planning, birthday parties, going back on my diet, working out (ouch), and working for my Aunt & her best friend. Sheesh, no wonder you haven't heard from me! So, this is my official apology. I'm sorry! :) Well, at least I'm back now, but it'll probably be more of a weekly thing, as opposed to a daily thing.
The only thing, other than the family, that I've made time for lately has been playing World of Warcraft. I can admit it: I'm a nerd. But, hey, you already knew that! Ha ha ha!

We had a combined birthday party yesterday at my Aunt's house. It was a lot of fun! Got together with our closest friends & family, shared cupcakes, opened gifts, and laughed until we cried. It was such a fun day! Here are a few pics...


Finally, some organization!

So, I have finally added 2 links to my page, my gallery on Deviant art, and my store on etsy.com. Hopefully you'll get a chance to browse, send your friends on by, etc. There has been a small lapse in my posting to both sites, but this week there will be A LOT going on to both! Hope you like 'em!
For those who may be interested, the garage sale fundraiser went GREAT! We had an awesome turn out, and the Bake Sale was a blast to run with the girls! I'm SO tired! but it was worth it! Have a good day, all!

P.S. This is my friend wheel, I generated it on Facebook. It's how all of my FB friends connect to one another. There were some on there that I didn't expect to have a connection. Neat-O!


Stuff in general

Okay, I know it's been a while, but all is well again here in "the merry ol' land of Oz." I've been painting, crafting, scrap booking, raising children, and enjoying Spring break with the fam. We haven't gone anywhere or done anything. Just vegged, which I think is better than going and doing right now. We're always out and about, doing a million things. This week however of doing nothing, has been incredibly theraputic, you know?
I am excited about Twilight coming out on DVD this Friday @ Midnight... but now this issue comes. Who has the best deal. I've seen so many different releases. Target has a 3 disc set, Walmart a 2 disc 'special edition', Amazon has the super ultimate deluxe has everything you could possibly imagine in it editioin, and then there are just the stores with the regular 2 disc editions but they're having the release parties with the fun and the giveaways & stuff. Ah descisions. What ever is a Cullen fan to do? I know... I'll read all the books again!
Speaking of reading books, I just finished the 5th House of Night book by P.C. & Kristen Cast "Hunted." It was pretty good. But, I was kinda annoyed at the end of it. Oh well. The 6th will come out next year (sniffle). However, I read the 4th mercy Thompson "Bone Crossed" by Patricia Briggs. AWESOME!!! (The picture to the right is the coverart for 'Bone Crossed'. It was painted by an artist named Dan Dos Santos. I LOVE HIS WORK! You can check him out at www.dandossantos.com) Also am anxiously awaiting the 4th Cassie Palmer "Curse the Dawn" by Karen Chance. Two and a half weeks to go on that one (agony!). But I did start reading the Blue Bloods series by Melissa De La Cruz. It's pretty good... so far. It came highly recommended by my cousin Ryan, one of the coolest guys I know. He and his sister have more artistic talent than you can shake a stick at.
I'm starting to feel that I'm rambling, but hey, that's what this blog is for! So, speaking of art. I was on www.deviantart.com recently and came across some really awesome paintings. So, I'm going to share them with you, one at a time... so that the suspense eats at you and you are forced to visit my blog often. Mwa ha ha ha haaaaaa! (evil chuckles are so much fun!) Here goes! Have a good one! -Jeri
