The Tree is UP

Well, we, or should I say I, put up the tree Friday afternoon. Isn't she pretty! Just a few mishaps since then, the cats seem to think that the skirt underneath is there is to be messed up and hide under, um, no, it is decoration cats! They also pulled down one of the drapey ribbons and I thought for sure I didn't make them too long, but who knows, these cats at night are a bit crazy!

Also, Natalie seems to think that the ornaments are there for her to take down and play with, um, no, she is too silly!

Oh and I finished another painting, it is a fairy angel and it says "WISH"

Pink Elephants on Parade

Painted as Natalie discovered Dumbo. Have you seen that movie as an adult? Kinda strange and there is this part where strange looking elephants with a black background sing 'pink elephants on parade,' very LSD-ish. This movie just deals with a lot of more mature issues that how I remember it, but that is a good thing.
I call this: Believe in the Unbelievable

Painted Today...

Well, today we played hooky from dance class and went to Michael's to get more paint. Specifically some glitter paint...and I wanted to get some flat canvases too. I will be showcasing my work @ Wendy Butlers' House Boutique Dec 15th. I thought I would have some scarves, but they take a LONG time. So maybe some scarves, maybe some artwork. We will see, no stress, all fun and games!
I call this 11x14 canvas panel piece: Seek and You Shall Find

I have been truly inspired by SuziBlu and really enjoy learning and experimenting with paint and mixing and moving it around till it looks good. Oh and can you see the glitter? It is on her crown and wings.
Have a good weekend everyone, I hope to paint again tomorrow.

Tough Day Today!

You know, it is really rough when your manager tells you that working a 40 hour work week is not enough. I asked to add a headcount to the team because they are working more than 40 hours a week and I was told that since I work 40 hours a week, that we cannot justify another headcount unless I was at 50 or more hours a week and totally burnt out.
This was somewhat disturbing to me. I honestly believe that I complete way more than most people in 1 hour and that I have been working really hard to get this team up and running and darn-it there has been tremendous change since I started.

Is being burnt out something for which one should strive?

horoscope today = If you are feeling like you want some time on your own, this is a good time to take it. Whether you want to take a vacation day, work from home, or schedule yourself a getaway solo weekend, do what it takes to get some alone time. As far as your friends and family go, just keep them informed as to what you need and where you want to go. They'll understand. Your inner extrovert is being overpowered by your inner introvert, and it will create some long-overdue parity.

I shoulda taken off to some far away place today, that woulda made me feel better, or even spent $ I don't have, that is always fun fun fun!

UPDATED: Instead, I made this today. Get it?

Went to Walmart Again & New Art Jourrnal Pages

You know, I took about 8 photos of her wearing these, but this one just summed it all up, it is perfect. Silly face, she loves to make that face!

Recent Art Journal pages - the bottom left is a collaboration with Natalie, she drew a monkey and a gorilla - and her as a scarecrow...ok....that works!

Angel Card of the day was INSPIRATION!

Great horoscope too!
Your priorities should be easy to establish today -- there is a lot of clarity to your thinking, and no shortage of motivation. You are ready to roll up your sleeves and get things going, because there are vivid concepts about birth, growth and nurturing fulminating within you. You know that something new and wonderful can get started today, and you have no interest in wasting any more time thinking about it. You're ready to move, so that should be the thing you focus most on today.
