Things that happened yesterday in list form

  • woke up and had cake (yes, I know you all know this), noticed my bubs had gotten me a new/old Nancy Drew mystery about a stage coach
  • did the whole bloggy computer thing, while consuming the "nectar of the gods", by nectar of the gods I mean...Frappio, at the moment it rules my whole existence
  • sat on my porch for a few minutes where I saw a sleek white, beautiful little creature, at first I thought it was a bunny, but was an albino squirrel, I hope I see it again today
  • painted things and packaged things
  • cried when I read the outpouring of birthday wishes on my blog
  • cried when I read my friend Aaron's blog and his lil' birthday tribute
  • watched a HUGE scary ass lighting storm, part of the sky was green, the other part was black.
  • got a special delivery of a dozen roses sent to me from my friend (and self proclaimed "biggest fan" Diana
  • ate more cake, after eating pizza and french fries (it's my birthday damn it, calories don;t count on your birthday
  • talked to my mom on the phone, who though did not send me a birthday gift swears she is putting something in the mail for me....some sort of miracle dead sea salt face stuff that will help me be beautiful....she swears this to be true, the sending and the beautiful part, and like always, I believe her...

so that was my day, in a boring un birthday celebratory as I type this the air is cool and the skies are dark, it looks like night but it is 8:00am, and I want to go back to sleep, but the Frappio has my heart and head going, so instead of sleep, I type, and then I will paint and I will not emerge from my studio until I am done.

you see I'm swimming with ideas, my bubs gave me some bulletin boards and I have one hanging between my art tables and I am using one as my inspiration board....and you see, it's working, I am inspired and have sketched out another very large painting.

now, first I must finish the things I started yesterday, which incluse a couple small pieces and some ornaments.

Photos today are of one of the ornaments in my shop as well as a new small collage, oh and I did post the large 18x24 piece as well....

one last thing before I go.....I promised you faithful ones that I had something special up my sleeve for this weeks celeb letters, I am giving you all a heads up as this letter will be themed.

you see (sorry boys) Michelle sent me a wonderful link a while back to find out who your "Celebrity Boob Twin" is.....well, here's the challenge, find your boob twin and write to her.

Boy readers, you can make one up or just revel in the boob inspiration, your choice.

Why does it not surprise me that Fij sent you the link to the boob thing?

Glad you enjoyed your bday, JftB. And I'm glad that I'm two months younger than you. 31 is really nice. ;)

Wow! Beautiful work. Aren't albino squirrels supposed to be a lucky omen? Maybe it's just a Southern thing.

Yay, white squirrel sighting! Around the country there are a few cities that call themselves home of the white squirrel. They are not albino, but a white genetic mutation thing. Maybe one of those have made it to you!

Woot, I can't wait to find my boob twin! And I also need to find me some of that Frappio... or maybe I should just stick to the lo-carb monster. I don't want to have a stroke by 30.

That albino squirrel sounds so cool! I've never seen one but I would love to. Didn't you just want to catch it and have it live inside as a pet and constant good luck charm? I would have.

Sounds like you had a lovely birthday yesterday. I'm so glad... you deserve it!

Love the new collage... you know I love it when your pieces have a lot of black in them. So elegant!

Never had nor heard of Frappio until you mentioned and hyperlinked it.

Will have to try it sometime.

Definitely curious about the Frappio,and that is the cooliest about the albino squirrel!
I think the "ironic coolness" of cartoon characters increases exponentially the older we get!

I love the boobspiration thing. Can't wait for tomorrow!
Your birthday sounded lovely. I love birthdays.
And I love all the new work you posted. At first I thought those ornaments were plates. Have you ever thought about that? Not that you really want people eating off your beautiful work, but plates would be awesome. I'd put pretty little hors d'oeuvres and canapes on them. sorry, rambling.
