Snow Day

100_0265[1]

Friday night into Saturday morning we got hit with a snow storm that dropped around 5 to 6 inches of snow.100_0274We managed to get dug out, not that we actually went anywhere but it had to be done so we could get out if needed.100_0272While out exploring I took a tumble but thankfully it was a soft landing. So I decided to head back inside and work on some art. Not that I had anything better to do, well I did have other things but they aren’t nearly as much fun as my art.

20180114_061603I am working on creating a series of cards to sell at the local artwork that is held monthly.  I call these ones “Hippie Chicks”  I want to get copies made so I can keep the originals. 20180111_121106This little guy was the first one I created and started the idea of the “Hippie Chicks”. However he already found his way to a new home and was a hit.

I hope you stick around because I have so much more art to share and one of my New Years goals is to get myself and my art out there in the world.

I just can’t do it.

I tried really I did . I had every intention of staying away but I realize just can’t do it. I know that I would miss everyone just way too much. Seems bloggin is in my blood.I don’t know why I even bothered with a silly post like my last one. I do have things to tell you even if I can’t show you. I guess it was just the fact that I had so much trouble with this dinosaur of a PC that was making blogging no fun. I figured out a few of the settings and changed them and it is working so much better. Still can’t take pics though. I’m really not sure I can handle this til after christmas. I may just have to try my son’s Nickelodeon camera if nothing else. Hey it may be a little kiddie camera but if it works who am I to complain. I’ll try it tomorrow maybe.

I started my weight loss program again. Last time I did it I lost 50lbs and I looked good. I’ve gained back 30 of it and I really don’t like how it makes me feel. I realize it will be a long hard journey but it is one I am willing to take to make me feel and look better. I’ll keep you posted on my progress.

Also I dyed my hair. I went from a blonde to a red head. Let me tell ya the story behind my dying disaster.

I  bought reddish blonde coloring and was excited to come home and give it a go. well that’s exactly what I did and let me tell you I was not a happy girl. It turned Tomato red. There was no way in H-E- double hockey sticks I was going to go around looking like a tomato.I did not take pics thank goodnes. though you might have had a good laugh if I had. It might have looked fine on someone else but it just was not me. I gave it one day and then went back and got a dark Auburn to cover over it. It is now more burgundy . I am getting used to it. It is such a big change from Blonde and it takes people by suprise when they see me but everyone seems to like it though because I have received many compliments.

In knitting news I have finished my fingerless gloves.

I have to type up the pattern and then find a test knitter before I will post it here. I want to make sure that it is easily understandable to all level of knitters.

Well I have pumpkin bread in the oven I must go check. Yea I know not good for someone who just started a diet but I promise it is not for me. Dh is taking it to work with him tomorrw. So I am forced to behave since it wont be here in the morn when I get up. But it sure smells yummy right now.

Night all and  Happy knitting.

Something a little funny.

Not much knitting going on lately but I am doing lots of sewing will share it later but for now I leave you with this.

Friendship Prayer:  “May the fleas of a thousand camels infest the crotch of the person who screws up your day and may their arms be too short to scratch…Amen.”

I saw this on one of my forums. I thought it was funny and just had to share it with you.

I am sorry if it offends anyone it certainly was not my intention to do so.
