All I want for Christmas..

Is my own art room!! I miss having my own space to just breathe and create more of me in. I have so many ideas swinmming in hy head right now, but the idea of pulling out my supplies and hauling them up the steps, then setting up, watching for the baby, and then having to put everything up when I'm done is just over whelming right now.

I did buy new canvases today. Hopefully I will have them complete by Kwanzza. Prayerfully they will sell!!

I also purchased the lates Cloth Paper Scissors toady!!! I'm excited 1 because I finally found it in my neighborhood. 2 i found 2 projects that live up right with my current ideas!! I am so excited. My mom is laughing at me. Because when I got home I read it cover to cover. She was trying to ask how to cook a vegitarian friendly dish and I couldn't respond for being wrapped up in all of the articles. and instructions.

I have one project that I just may give a try in the next few weeks it was one of those naggin paint techniques that I just knew wasn't as hard at it appeared. However previous attempts we okay, but now, I hope this works better.

Well I'm off to the Whitfield Family Soul!!! Gathering. I'm supposed to have my goodies on display for my family to see and I just realized that I left all of my jewelry at my house. Oooohhh well all the more reason for them to visit my blog.

Peace to all!

I have finally dived into an art class, well 2!!!

Unfourtunately I can't find any work by the instructor, but I found this gorgeous piece on Flickr! by Shoozels. She has a beautiful collection. As I was gong through her pics I was doing the Homer Simpson, " OOOOOGGGGGHHHHCCCCKKKkkk" and yes drooling!! So at the end of this 8 week pursuit I haope I am filled with the knowledge and inspiration to create pieces as beautiful as this.

I'm also signed up for a beginner paint class. Anybody can paint, yes, but there are some shadow and bleding things that I;m just not getting on my own. So I'll be kicking my new year off in high gear!!!

Off to my current pursuits. I have to finish a coffetable book I'm making for my mom. I have so new mixed media pieces I am creating for my Kwanzza shows. Also I have to have the GN baby book done for his 1sy B-day party on the 29th. This is such a busy and exciting time.

Hope your enjoying the holiday spirit!!

Getting back to me.........Sometimes this is so much harder than it sounds. So much harder to do for self after taking care of everyone else for so long. A lot has happened over the last month that has just taken so much of my attention and tiem away from me, my art, my needs. That I just feel drained. I've lost a friend, had to make drastic changes to my daily life, question those around me. And I want so bad to keep telling myself that this is all going to work out. But geesh!!!! I'm exhausted.

Now we are into the holiday season and I can't get motivated. I always make everything I gift, but this year, gift cards are really sounding good. Really good. Except for 2 people in particular. I can't give my child a gift card,she'd laugh at me, even at the age of 5. And AK.... I just don't know what to do with him. I wanted to make him something, but of course when I asked for somethingin particular, so did he.

So now to the lab. I'm working on a few ideas, it's just a matter of sitting down and getting to them. We are expecting family next week, and the house I must say is a mess. My creative juices have been more effective in the kitchen as of late. Veggie soups, stuffing, and teas. I leave you with the making of my soup, create it in your own way for you and your's. My GS calls it

"Goddie Stew"

Celery,White Onion, Green Onions, a few cloves of Garlic, 3 tbs of butter, about 16 ounces of water, Season to taste. I use Creole seasoning and Season All. Bring to a boil, simmer for just a little while, but don't let the water boil out.

Now to your base add a large can (20 to 25oz) of tomato sauce, a small can (16oz) of Tomatoes. I prefer Del Monte garlic, pepper, and onion tomatoes and 1 packages of veggie crumbles. Which ever brand you prefer.

I also add rice to the stew. Use your prefered method. I hate cooking rice and my GS cooks way too much. Maybe I should start making this with left over rice? There's a thought! Anyhow, I cook my rice in the microwave. I only cook a cup.

Now mix in the rice, season to taste if needed and enjoy!!!!

Saturday's Devotional--Children Learn What They Live
Good Morning,

 "Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will
not turn from it." (Proverbs 22:6)

 Change is rarely easy. In fact it can be very difficult to change
the patterns learned in our developmental years. Solomon noted the
importance of early training some 3,000 years ago. Dorothy Law Nolte
explained it rather precisely in the following words:

    If a child lives with criticism,
       he learns to condemn.
    If a child lives with hostility,
       he learns to fight.
    If a child lives with ridicule,
       he learns to be shy.
    If a child lives with shame,
       he learns to feel guilty.
    If a child lives with tolerance,
       he learns to be patient.
    If a child lives with encouragement,
       he learns confidence.
    If a child lives with praise,
       he learns to appreciate.
    If a child lives with fairness,
       he learns justice.
    If a child lives with security,
       he learns to have faith.
    If a child lives with approval,
       he learns to like himself.
    If a child lives with acceptance and friendship,
       he learns to find love in the world.
 Adapted from "Children Learn What They Live" by Dorothy Law Nolte
 It hardly needs saying that we need to be very loving in the way we
bring up our children. But what if we, as adults, didn't receive
loving, wholesome training as a child ourselves? Can we change? Yes,
if we truly want to and are willing to accept responsibility for
doing what we need to do to change.

 Today’s prayer: "Dear God, knowing that my parents did the best they
knew how, help me never to blame them for any problems I have, and
please give me the desire to keep growing so I become a warm,
loving, accepting adult/parent. And please lead me to the help I
need to overcome the effects of any deficiencies in my childhood
training. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully
in Jesus' name, Amen."

And I said, Father, please protect and bless the

Fwd: Pastors business card

Pastor's Business Card

A new pastor was visiting in the homes of his parishioners.  At one house
it seemed obvious that someone was at home, but no answer came to his
repeated knocks at the door.

Therefore, he took out a business card and wrote 'Revelation 3:20' on the
back of it and stuck it in the door.

When the offering was processed the following Sunday, he found that his
card had been returned.  Added to it was this cryptic message, 'Genesis

Reaching for his Bible to check out the citation, he broke up in gales of
laughter.  Revelation 3:20 begins 'Behold, I stand at the door and knock.'
Genesis 3:10 reads, 'I heard your voice in the garden and I was afraid for
I was naked.'

Remember when the funniest jokes were the clean ones? They still are!

'A cheerful heart is good medicine' (Prov. 17:22)

                              Now, pass it on

The excitment mounts!!!! I have 9 hours until NaNoWriMo starts!! I am so excited. I've taken pages of notes. I've also been creatively charged. I have to go through something to write prose or poetry which ever you prefer. I just prefer writer. I have writen about 6 pieces about my MC, that I've decided to tie this project in with an art project I am going to create a love story with these pieces and collages. It will be my first handmade book from start to finish.
Does any one know where I can get a word counter for NaNoWriMo to put on my blog?
So my Be Brave Challenge is not going well. I've been consumed by my note taking and ideas for my love book, and family visiting from Florida. I'm having fun but haven't commited much to this. I can say that I completly let my gaurd down with someone that I had initally been gaurded with and expressed my true feelings about his actions and recent life decisions. Followed by a trip to the Cigar Shop. Just one Dad, I promise!! And I needed that cool lighter I found in the parking garage filled, I use it to light the candles and inscence. I promise!!!! I love incesnce.
Oh I ordered some new books for myself, which is something I love!!!!

ok well I guess that's it. ON my way to pick up the laptop!!!!
If your part of NANOWRIMO and you happen to stop by, drop me a line!!!!
As for the rest of you, make sure I'm still sane!!!!! Kisses!!

OK back to the party update!!!

Blogger really got frustrating the other day so I had to just walk away slowly.
So now I'm back trying once again to give you the update. Or as my GM would say" We back for for the re-mix"!
I sold an assemblage piece. I almost want to say my first, but it would be a lie. I've made others But not one like this, I was in love with it! But I know it has a good home. It now resides with one of my co-workers. Thanks Debbie, I hope you enjoy your new piece!!
So let's see what else. I have pics from my photographer some up close display stuff.
We've been friends for a few years now, and he took some really good pics that I think I may use when I decide to put my web sight back up. Here's a sneak peak:
And of course the money shot!!! Isn't it amazing the things people can get us to do. I really enjoyed my self and my time with him. He really captured me the way I see me. Does that make sense?
So what else is new? I have taken the be brave challenge. My first step was signing up for NaNoWriMo ! I am excited and afraid all at the same time. I will definitely keep you posted on how that's going. So far I'm writing a story about a man who helps a woman through a break up, ultimately, so that he can be with her. He gives her time to heal, but when she comes for him he is distant,moving away, and forgets all the promises he's made. He's basically a new person!!
Definately stay tuned!!!! Also as part of this I joined a group with some of the GPS who are also participating.
Also as part of the be brave challenge I posted the money shot. I've always been very self conscience and concerned with what people think of me or what I am doing. So standing in my front yard, tootin my booty out at the tree is soooooooo not me. Now if I'd been in the house or in his studio, there's a big difference. But I was in our front yard, right before the little league game started across the street and we live on a busy street. So that might be it for this week. I'm still tryin gto recoup. I've been on a bit of a creative high. Filling orders, plannig for the novel. I even wrote some poetry this week.
I'm planning my brave steps for next week. A few things I have in mind are asking someone to exchange blog links, writting someone for advice or directions, and walking up to a guy and saying hi. Sounds small, but at 26 and starting over I really, really need to get over this shy thing. My GS would be proud!
So ttfn!!!

Wednesday's Words of Encouragement--Effective Intercession

 Good Morning,
 The centurion answered and said, Lord, I am not worthy that thou
shouldest come under my roof: but speak the word only, and my
servant shall be healed. Matthew 8:8

 Not only can you and I speak the Word of God over our own lives, but
we can be an effective intercessor by speaking and praying the Word
of God over the lives of others.

Saturday's Devotional--People Pleasers

 Good Morning,
 "In the temple courts he [Jesus] found men selling cattle, sheep and
doves, and others sitting at tables exchanging money. So he made a
whip out of cords, and drove all from the temple area, both sheep
and cattle; he scattered the coins of the money changers and
overturned their tables. To those who sold doves he said, 'Get these
out of here! How dare you turn my Father's house into a market!'" John 2:14-16

 Of one thing we can be certain: Jesus was not a "people pleaser."
The reality is that "people pleasers" inevitably end up getting
frustrated and angry because they are not getting the response they
want from trying to please everybody, and ultimately end up pleasing nobody.

 It isn't possible to please everybody. When we try to, we do it out
of our own need for approval—an empty substitute for love. As one
person said, "If you have to stand on your head to make others
happy, all you can expect to get is a big headache."

 Or as another put it, "If you stand for something you will have some
people for you and some against you. But if you stand for nothing,
you will have nobody against you—and nobody for you."

 As already noted, Jesus was not a "people pleaser." He stood for
truth and right regardless of what anybody thought of him. May God
help you and me to do the same.

 "Suggested prayer: "Dear God, help me to find inner security both in
your love and that of others so I will not be searching for love in
trying to please others. Deliver me from this bondage. Thank you for
hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully in Jesus' name, Amen."

Diligence - Words of Wisdom - October 4th, 2007

Just a few words of encouragement as I leave you te prepare for my first big show! It at our house and we've invited roughly 100 people!!! We have a lot of work to do as my GM is taking her art off the walls to display mine. I need to track my caterer down and confirm a  few things, haven't heard from him since I paid him in full.  I am so excited!!!!! I'm going to be working hard between tonight and tomorrow to get a lot of things done, because coming home through out the week and trying to get things done without  a dedicated  space is sooo hard. Enjoy your weekend, take a breath for me. I'm going to try and check in before the festivities begin next week. Enjoy!!

And now for you Words of Wisdom .....

Good morning. The only way to be very blessed is to become very intense.
The world can't help but to bless a diligent person! If you look at the
lives of those who are very successful you will notice one similarity-
they are diligent!! The scripture clearly states in Proverbs 12:24 that
diligent people are blessed people. Keep going!!!!!!!!!!

Thursday's Words of Encouragement--Shake IT Off!

 Good Morning,
 Now Paul had gathered a bundle of sticks, and he was laying them on
the fire when a viper crawled out because of the heat and fastened
itself on his hand. Then (Paul simply) shook off the small creature
into the fire and suffered no evil effects.  Acts 28:3,5

 Whatever may be troubling you from the past, shake it off!  God has
a great future planned for you.  The dreams of the future have no
room for the snakebites of the past!
