No matter how many times I venture into the big grey asphalt jungle I fall in love with it every time. Please don't misconstrue, I would never want to take up permanent residency there but for a weekend outing is cannot be beat. You can keep your LA, Chicago, Miami, Vegas, etc… Just please give me my Big Apple.
I almost feel compelled to bring this up. Tiredness. I know I don't have to ask for a show of hands. What is our deal! Give me a pillow and a blanket and right now I can curl up and conk out. To add insult I went to bed at 9:30 last night! I said 9:30 folks. I better start upping my doses of youth because I am starting to feel OLD! Needless to say I am a whole day behind … ON EVERYTHING… I am thanking my lucky stars that I was in overdrive the beginning of the week knowing I wouldn't get anything done this weekend.
So here is a new piece. Who was suppose to go up for sale last night but lets just say sleep got the better of me.
I hope you all stay fancy. Enjoy your weekends and I will be in bright and early Monday morning with some pictures I hope!

I think we have reached our last day of luke warm weather. The leaves are tumbling from the trees and just as soon as Autumn arrived she is now saying goodbye. Alsa, winter is creeping upon us. Majestically beautiful but so unforgiving.
I painted another Lucy and Mabel painting last night. My inspiration is Coffee. I guess in a way this piece represents me and my dreams. I so badly want to open a gallery/store/studio/coffee shop that I can taste it. And I sit and dream about it, sometimes dream so hard I can see myself sitting in it. I want it more and more everyday. I can see the decorations I can hear the acoustic guitar, I can smell the coffee brewing. Sometimes I have to ask if my dreams are dreams or if I am really there. My imagination has become so keen that my reality has become warped. All in good time I tell myself... but time... I think Hootie says "time why do you punish me" , or something like that. But still I wait and I will continue to do so until the time is just right.
AHHHH and on a lighter note of enjoying dreams during reality, I will be spending the next several days making my HALLOWEEN costume.. And no I am not telling you right now what it is .. Now you too will also have to wait *wink wink*
P.S. If any of you folks happen to own or know some one who owns a coffee/art shop I would love to speak to you or them about it. I really need to do some interviewing.... I would greatly appreciate it!
Smooches for the day my loves,

A little snowman on wood. I am doing this with water-color pencil, acrylic paint, scrapbook paper, and scrapbook elements. This makes a wonderful door hang for kids to make and gift to their parents or grandparents. I left out a lot of the technical cutting and such ... I didn't want to get into using exact-o knives.
Also, I did my FIRST ATC with a lovely lady from the UK! Here are my ACT's
Her trade off were just WONDERFUL. With the nicest fall colors. AHHHH.... Alas, I can see that the most beautiful season is coming to an end. I guess all good things do.
For those who didn't get my email last night... I know spur of the moment. Lately, I have been really diving into my innerself and asking ... What do I really want to do with my life? I guess there is never a definitive answer but I have an answer right now. A while back came across a blog of two women who opened a little folk art country store in what I think was Virginia. Well, being a daughter of two parents who own a MOM and POP store I loved with artsy twist that these fine ladies gave it. They sold their art and home baked goods. HOW SWEET! (no pun intended). Anywho... although I thought I saved the blog I did not .... (wa wa waaaaaa) And now I am on the hunt for them. I don't know their names I don't know the name of their store. All I know is that they blog in this circuit. I feel like I am on unsolved mysteries! HEHE.. If you may know whom I speak of please leave me a message.
The engagements party went really well and we all had a very nice time. Went too fast if you ask me! I won at Atlantic City. I am not a gambler but I threw in $20 and pulled out $100!!!!!!!!!!!! Art supply store here I come! I am sick .. HAHA..
