My poor car has been in the body shop. During WILMA (on my birthday) it was the hurricane that took everybody's windshields out tree trunks though them (2005). . .therefore it is not the original windshield. It leaked. The shop said I got it in time, no major damage (rusted) so they are able to repair it. Whew! Bit the bullet on that one. But they are waiting on the glass company to come put the windshield back in (they had popped it out to be worked on) so I can have the car after they paint around it. This is the 3rd day without the car. Today is another stormy/windy day with falling temps. My errands went begging this week.
Thank you Kristin and Eva for a wonderful playground for all of us artists to show and tell. Be sure to visit all the artists at Paint Party Friday. They are informative, fun and teach amazing products I never knew existed. Their videos teach so many things.

We have had 2 days every week of Tornadoes and flooding for the past 3 weeks. Totally unusual for So. FL. I've lived here almost 30 years and Tornadoes have been many but never the destructive kind we had in IL. It is totally unusual for the hottest year on record (last year) and the horrendous weather we are now having. It's like the world turned upside down and we are all flying against the wind. . . like my little bird.
Thank you Kristin and Eva for the wonderful Artists place you give us to show our works and to learn from each other. Be sure and give a look at all the wonderful artists at Paint Party Friday.

Storms keep coming around. 'They' say it is the El Nino effect. It sure feels like I'm back in the Midwest and that was one of the reasons I left it. So. FL never has that type of storm. . . at least not to this extent.
Thank you Paint Party Friday for a place artists can go to see other work, learn other techniques and new art products.

She is totally pencil, acrylics and sparkles.
Happy Paint Party Friday and be sure not to miss all the wonderful artists listed there.
There is only one time to be happy. That time is NOW!

I've been missing lately because this summer the community cut ALL trees down. All we have now are either very tall Palm trees or tiny starter Palms (to replace the trees). My back room (work room for all my crafts from sewing to scrapbooking to painting) is too hot even with the blinds closed. It is impossible to work now. I am looking for another place to live. It has been 80s, 90s, 100s (summer), even into December. I need not only the blinds to be open so I can look outside, but a cooler environment to work in. I have a small condo so it is impossible to move the workroom anywhere else in the house.
So many diverse artists on Paint Party Friday. . .be sure to visit them all.
I hope everyone had great holidays.
I didn’t come this far to only come this far.

Thank you Kristen and Eva for the opportunity to show and tell our art work on Paint Party Friday. A fantastic place to see different artists, tools, paints and how they accomplish so much.
I've been missing a couple of weeks. Busy with my writing and photography.

Thank you Kristin and Eva for the wonderful fun times at Paint Party Friday for so many artists.
I have not seen a Puffin in person yet. But I love the little darlings.
These past few years, the population of Atlantic puffins has continued decreasing, reaching dramatic cotes (more than 30% of them have disappeared). Scary. . I would hate to lose them.
