Back again! hee hee
I wonder if snails get high.
My little fox is having fun hanging out on my desk...
Todd sent me another photo he colored from jail. One of his last - he is counting down- under 100days left! Might be under 75 now. I will start to think about his welcome home card! I gave out postcards on IG yesterday... today, I mail them off!
Out into the world, the furthest from this batch is going to Germany!
Time to paint - I couldn't wait today to start- with a card... for a friend, of course.
By the Grace of God we'll all have a fantastic day!
Stuck in snail mode.. lol - I am to learn something here? Is this to represent my life and I should embrace my new snails in stillness? Perhaps I just like drawing them.
The more I learn about them, the beauty, color the intricate detail, many of us just crunch on over. I am attracted to them, I did set up my little snail tank and found some by the pond but I believe now, I found 'emptied shells'... I'm patient, I can wait... That's it! Patience!!!
I am not patient lately and my friends know it... I have this sense of urgency!
Do it today! Tomorrow might never come!
I send random e mail - feeling - they need to know!
I send random e mail telling people stuff at all hours. Sometimes business advice - usually not asked for, art inspirations, places they should visit, sofas they can sleep on - I'll help arrange it! LOL... I bug them - What are you doing? What are you painting? Are you keeping creative? Do you miss me? - I miss you ... I invite myself to their homes and I've yet to receive a 'NO'. So, Passport page 'one' has been filled out.
I have come to the conclusion only again last night - some of my most talented friends - need to hear it! Think about it, do you put yourself out there every day? Share with the world and hope you have inspired, made someone smile?
Do you tell people who inspire you, you love them? Don't you? Why not?
Why is it easier to think I hate that... I hate you.
Perhaps even saying it to someone.
Yet, tell someone you love them, it's hard BUT they too have a hard time hearing it.
I know, people must wonder - what is she after. Frankly, nothing.
I do not NEED anything - except - peace of mind. God helps me with that.
I've decided to start to change that if only 'in my mind'.. today I will whisper in my mind
'I love you' to every other living being that crosses my path.
I will say it 'out loud' to a few as well.
I don't care if they have a hard time hearing it.
I mean it.
Storm suggested I call my snail series "Riders on the Snail..." instantly the tune was in my head a smile across my face! Is that not the best song for a snail ride?? LOL!
Poppy is on her 10lb snail, riding all over the backyard! I see it now. Storm sang a few lines that has just had me cracking up again! A new song will be on the way to accompany my little snail adventures.
Today - I'm drawing an owl on a snail for someone I love.
They won't know it - until they get it in the mail.
Like it or not.
TELL someone - Tell everyone!
If only in your mind when passing them in the street!
It's got to make for a better day!
Have faith <><
I am not appreciated around here.
Every-time I look at this I giggle, both Storm and Norm look at me and wonder why.
Because. It was the perfect quote for me & my little friend.
It is mixed media and one of the times I really wish you could see the original.
The shell is covered with a gold clear finish. The paper was HEMP - LOVE drawing on hemp with water color crayons, it blended really nicely.
Thank you to Quintessential Tips for my great paper! My friend Candice from QT has me considering Prague in Nov., a cannabis expo and some amazing art! Hmmmmmm...
I was on my way to bed and looked at the beginning of this sketch and sat down to play, I stop to check out PIN when drawing, I need a little 'dry time' in between stages - enough where my hand won't make a mess dragging across the paper.
More inspiration, more dreaming. ;) I think I should stay off, I could just get into trouble I think. I have a tendency to do... never of course with the intentions of doing so purposely - I get carried away in such creativity! I DO!
It was so peaceful, I plan on making night time drawing a routine.
It is easy (er) IMO to draw get lost without all the interruptions of the day - between the dogs barking at squirrels to street traffic. I am too, blessed with the fact that I don't have to live by a clock. Why not!?
I have kermit the frog head phones for my music! I am all set.
I am trying very hard to live with what is happening, drawing can be a challenge - with constant interruptions from my own head every few moments. I do what I have to do and draw what I want to draw. We learn...we adapt we continue and hopefully throw in as much fun as possible. Look at that content frog... he makes me smile. He is O.k. with-in.
I will make a new trail.
Tonight - a new creation!
Oh - lol - I was thinking I was going to post on FB
- 'Free cartoon to the first person who gets me a new snail!'
*Thinking - it would be one of my local pals - like Cathy, Sue, Marie - Liam lol
- on their adventures - would surely pick up a snail and bring it!
BUT then I thought - OMGosh!
What if people read it on FB & I start to get Snail Mail!!!
LOL! How cool would that be! Hahaha
I crack me up.
NOT if I was sent a few of those 101b snails!
Poppy would NOT be imprressed!
There is a drawing!! I can't wait!
First to finish some doggy doodles for a friend.
I am child of God created to create. I hope you like it.
Did it make you smile!? Then my task is complete.
No - oh well, I tried and will try again.
I will succeed- I have great power in me.
It's Easter Monday and Storm is home!
A few weeks ago he mentioned friends asked if he wanted to go to Spain, what did I think?
What did I think? GO! Yes, Go!! Go forso many reasons, Go.
Not to mention the friends were all experienced travellers - so, I was grateful for the experience. What mom wouldn't be? Then he went ! LOL!
Not just somewhere we could go get him if he needed assistance - from what I don't know - he fishes and camps in places I've never dared. Spain - not so easy.
I was slightly stresses, I missed him terribly as did his dad... I only told family and close friends and glad of that! I can't tell you how many said as soon as they heard about the plane crash in France - they thought of us, he did have to take several 'unexpected flights' as it was.
I pray for the famalies left behind to try to understand and deal with that nightmare.
He is already home! I tell you I cried tears of joy the moment he appeared through that frosted glass! ;)
He also had the perfect opportunity to prank his mom and he did.
At 5: something.m. I sleepily (not yet made it down to mako a cup of coffee) check my e mail. Anxious to see if my son has sent me any photos of his journey!
I see an email from Storm! I'm thrilled! I read the subject line:
Arrested in France.
My heart stopped. I looked at it, read it at least 3 times and the first thought was oh my God, I don't have my passport up to date!
I opened the e mail expecting the all the gory details - OR what IF that his only 'few short words' from his new Spanish jail cell??!!!
OMGOSH!! Are you kidding me - I looked up at the date on the corner my screen and smiled and got angry and laughed and cried and laughed .. OH he got me! It was the perfect chance and he took it. I have giggled about it since the next day. He is worried about 2016.
He should be.
He is home and I am hugged and he has made us laugh already several times with his adventures he has shared. How awesome he went over and saw so many friends that we have made over the years! He was treated very well and felt very loved.
He really loved the food!
His photos are wonderful! The memories he will have are priceless.
I was also worried about medicine and so was Storm, so this too was the perfect trip to put some fears to rest. He said he certainly has no issues in Spain, where it is treated differently and no one appears to have 'problems with it'.
I am not suprized. More lies. I know too many now who have all told me the same.
We are just thrilled he is home safe and had a wonderful vacation.
I still have a special cartoon Ive been working on, distracted today by my son and the sun. ;)
and this pair, the snail and the frog, I've fallen for this snail... I have a snail and a crow, butterfly, more toads. He makes me smile my big loveable toothy snail... he is 'sticking' around.
Hee hee hee
Now, I'm on to Chickadees and cherry blossoms.
Persistence in all things.
Including turning dreams into reality.
I love Easter!
This one was all the more special - Storm took some really stunning photos!
I will share (If he let's me) lol
He is Risen!
