The Future is Now

Happy 2007 loyal lovely readers...

how f-ing strange is it that it is 2007, seriously...when I was a kid I thought I would be dead by the year 2000, being obsessed with that bad HBO Nostradamus "documentary" at the age of 9 surely didn't help matters I am sure.

So...down to business, I have been taking a bit of a breather since Christmas, but as of now I am back and raring to go.

Keith's parents came into town this weekend, bringing a touch of New Hampshire love to our humble home...and just so you know, when I say love...I mean sweets.

as you well know I have a notorious love for cakes, you also know that I have major body issues, and the combination of the two...well let's just say it has led me to a guilt ridden chocolate overdose migraine.

Our house is now FILLED with 1 chocolate cake, 2 containers of cookies (reason for the headache and guilt), 2 boxes of petit fours, 1 box choco cherries, 1 Box of Devil Dogs, tons of chocolate candies, boxes of them, bags of them, m&m's, snowman peeps, 2 vegetarian lasagnas, 2 jars of beets (who the hell brings beets?), cinnamon roles, 1 case of regular coke, 1 case of regular pepsi, and a leftover piece of Carrot Cake from dinner out last night.

if food is love then Keith and I are the most beloved King and Queen of Sweet-Ville.

I will be diabetic and fat by Thursday.

All that being said it was a crazy weekend, it was lovely to see them and we did have the little monster this weekend too, so there was no fun frolicking New Year's Eve celebrations...just sleeping next to my bubs...which is really more than any girl could ever hope for.

I finally got a few hours this morning to myself and I was able to paint a little, it was nice relaxing into the day, paint brush in hand and coffee being brewed.

The only thing that sucked is that I got sucked into watching the funeral of Gerald Ford...please picture me painting in my pj's and crying like a lunatic....don't ask why...I really don't know.

I will be kicking it into high gear again, trying hard to get new stock for my etsy shop, as well as working on some larger gallery pieces.

The piece that I am showing today is called "New York Muse" it is available for sale in my shop.

Oh, and my one of a kind pendants have been selling pretty well, they take a while to make so I never have too many at a time, but I am really proud of them, a perfect combination of my obsessive love for fashion and collage.

oh, and before I forget, I will be guest blogging on the Funky Carter tomorrow, I have been honored with Admin Status all week along with my dear friend Tara....if I am not careful the power will go to my head.

I also suck in a small blog there today as well, so head on over there know you want to, everyone's doing it.

until next time.

I am honored to have you take the reins of Funky Carter this week, Jenn. You always make me proud.

Speaking of which, I've been meaning to tell you that I love those pendants. V.v. lovely.

Oh and: If you need to get rid of all those sweets, you can send them to me.

Aaron, I am thinking of sending sweets out every time somebody buys something from me, lol.

So, if you wanted to woo a lady friend with a would be re-paid with sweets, or.....I could just send some sweets.

I rocked Funky Carter Pretty Hard this morning...I set some very high standards of nonsense.
