Wait For It

I’m in awe of artists that can create everyday.

If I could find that daily inspiration, I’m pretty sure I would too.

Problem is … I can’t force the artist within, I have to coax her, like a lost dog on the street.

For me … there has to be a catalyst and that catalyst has to have friends that want to play nice together.

When they do … Oh, what a feeling ;) … it has to be better than a runner’s high!

Unfortunately, I can’t seem to run far enough to get inspiration to kick in … it’ll come to me when it’s time and still learning that the joy is in the journey;)

“There are times to stay put, and what you want will come to you, and there are times to go out into the world and find such a thing for yourself.”

Just Picture It

Researching typography and stumbled upon this really cool ransom note generator  … no fuss no muss … could be a great idea for Valentine’s Day

… and who doesn’t want their name or logotype in graffiti-style?  I know I do.

Then there is that burning question of where would I go to make a word cloud?

Need to stop goofing around. Work to do.

Have a great weekend.

Love Letters

strawberry shortcake lunch boxMy kids may, or may not, remember the little lunch box notes that I use to put into their lunchboxes, but I do.

Wish I would have done it everyday, just to let them know I was thinking about them.

Instead, I was usually scrabbling to find something to pack the cheese sticks and fruit roll ups in :)

It’s never to late.

I have stamps and a computer.

Kisses are Sweeter Than Whine

first kiss My first kiss was a boy named Dean, in Kindergarten … we were waiting in line at the drinking fountain and all I really remember was that he had mustard on his shirt.

Not much later … someone, probably my dad, told me that if I kissed someone my lips would really swell up and everyone would know.  Took me awhile to work through that lie … even though it was mean, it proved to be very effective.

Then there was that kiss that caused me to run to the mall to see Anthony Geary after Luke finally kissed Laura on General Hospital.

My favorite kiss of all time has to be the photograph of the Famous Kiss of 1945.

In trying to get our own way, we should remember that kisses are sweeter than whine.

The Art of Gluing

mdf heart shapeThe Mosaic Tile Class that was held on February 12th was so much fun!

I couldn’t believe that I had the time to create a mosaic tile project, along with everyone else! Happy day!

Using the rescued wooden heart, from a previous blog post, I gathered china shards and glass pieces.


Pretty cute … if I say so myself.

All that’s left? Deciding on a grout color.
