I missed you guys!

Okay so strike me down I haven't posted in awhile I feel like I am going through withdrawals. I hope everyone had a delightful weekend. I don't know about everyone else but the weather in upstate NY was poopy! We couldn't even drive it was just pouring down in droves! I guess better rain than snow at this point. Needless to say that put a damper on the weekend we ended up staying at Adams Dads house on Saturday on account of the rain. We caught some bits and pieces of some okay horror movies (nothing I can care to remember the name of) and that was it. Cut dry boring. BLAH. Sunday we ended up going up to my parents house and that too was uneventful.


Adam ended up getting called into work last night at about 10pm search and rescue. A hiker got lost up on Tounge Mountain in Lake George, NY and they had to dispatch the helicopters. Adam was the observer. Sorry to report but as of midnight the hiker was still missing. Makes me sick to think about it.

I have some SUPER EXCITING NEWS! My brother and his Fiance are coming up this coming weekend (from NJ)!!!! YAYAYA My drought of doing nothing is over. They are some of my favorite people to hang out with. AND they will be here all the way till Thanks Giving! EXCITING! Potentially during that time I might not get too much done in the way of art but please know it is being spent with two very important people.

So I did get a little somethin somethin done over the weekend. And here she is. I hope she will be going up on eBay tonight and if she doesn't sell there she is going on over to Etsy. I should have a few new things to list on Esty. I am sorry I keep saying it but I find listing items to be sooooo tedious! That is why there is always such a delay!

(The colors are sooo much more rich and viberant!)

( That is the side of the stretched canvas, to match the french words in English, 'Let it snow'. Her little birdy companion is saying MERRY CHRISTMAS!)

I have a few works in progress that I hope to be showing soo. I still don't feel like there is nearly enough to have a winter showcase and it is a tad overwhelming! And what is crazy is I am working every night on things. AHHHH .. I am sure it will straighten itself out. I am so amazed how FAST November flew by I can't even think about it or I will go crazy. One minute here and the next gone. On our second to last week and then December rears its jolly face.

Okay I am rambling. I feel like I haven't talk to you guys in forever! But I want to leave you with something that was just sent to me and struck a chord!

There was a blind girl who hated herself because she was blind. She hated everyone, except her loving boyfriend. He was always there for her. She told her boyfriend, 'If I could onlysee the world, I will marry you.' One day, someone donated a pair of eyes to her. When the bandages came off, she was able to see everything, including her boyfriend. He asked her, 'Now that you can see the world, will you marry me?' The girl looked at her boyfriend and saw that he was blind. The sight of his closed eyelids shocked her. She hadn't expected that. The thought of looking at them the rest of her life led her to refuse to marry him. Her boyfriend left in tears and days later wrote a note to her saying: 'Take good care of your eyes, my dear, for before they were yours, they were mine.' This is how the human brain often works when our status changes. Only a very few remember what life was like before, and who was always by their side in the most painful situations.
Life Is a Gift. Today before you say an unkind word - Think of someone who can't speak. Before you complain about the taste of your food - Think of someone who has nothing to eat. Before you complain about your husband or wife - Think of someone who's crying out to GOD for a companion. Today before you complain about life - Think of someone who went too early to heaven. Before whining about the distance you drive Think of someone who walks the same distance with their feet. And when you are tired and complain about your job - Think of the unemployed, the disabled, and those who wish they had your job.And when depressing thoughts seem to get you down - Put a smile on your face and think: you're alive and still around.I PRAY THIS MOVES AROUNDTHE ENTIRE UNIVERSE...

Do on to others time old tale. Believe me I forget more than anyone but remember to count your blessings every night and be thankful for them. You never know when fate might turn.

Have a great Monday.. EVERYONE!

Love your newest let it snow painting. Very cute and cheery just like you. Thanks for kicking me in the behind at the end there. I need to be reminded some time to enjoy every moment. :)

The crackle I used is called "one step crackle" I found it at Michael's. I like it better than the others. My sister Cris from "Mommy's Midwest Mountain" told me about it. That is why I called it Cris's Secret crackle. ;)
I am Tamalecat2 on ebay, but not sure you can find me like that. If you type in PEASE, I always have that in the listing, otherwise my link is on the blog.

Have a great day Stephanie!

I don't remember ever doing a vase of lilacs. I am not very good with flowers. Very interesting, but I do not think it was me. Hmmm, sounds pretty though. :)
