I just found out that Brandon Hopkins is having a contest for an iPod shuffle. All you have to do is link to him and link to this site about free business cards and you’re entered. So now I’m entered.
I would love to have an Ipod Shuffle since everyone in my family, including my husband has one and I don't. I feel very behind the times because, I never even got an MP3 player! I'm sure my children will have to show their technically challenged mother how to use this ipod but I know I will have fun with it. I HOPE I WIN!!! Now...let's see what else I can try for! Oh, it's 6:40a.m. and we have our morning meeting at work-(sigh) guess I better go and get ready. Happy Tuesday.

Well, this is my attempt at African art. See my last post to understand the inspiration behind this. This was all done on an 8X10 piece of drawing paper. I only used my prisma pencils and no inks or any other media. Can you believe it? Just one media? More later!

Tonight, I worked on my trunk that I am restoring. I bought some prisma color pencils today to replace the ones that are down to about nothin'. Thoughts going on? I'm of course thinking about my boy, thinking about my daughter who will be going (by airplane) tomorrow to see my sister in New Mexico, thoughts of my sister who I miss so much, thoughts of my best friend who had her birthday today....so many things to think about. Thoughts of projects I am doing, thoughts of the need to organize my thoughts. Busy, busy, busy. But, I am blessed and spoiled! I could be thinking about where I would get me next meal, how I will pay the bills, etc. Speaking of which. I have to share this.
I see this old lady, every day almost....walking down the interstate close to where I live. She is always dressed inappropriately-like a bathing suit top (she is really old) or a winter coat in the summer. She is clearly mentally ill. She is always looking down at the ground....for cigarette butts? Money? Where does she live I wonder to myself. What is she looking for? She breaks my heart. I want to stop and visit with her. I want to give her some comfort in life. I think to myself, "there by the grace of God go I'. I think that I should pray for her. I think that she deserves some comfort. I don't know her story and it is not mine to judge her. I am sorry she lives this way. But, perhaps, she is happy. I don't have any idea. Anyway, those are my thoughts today.

His dad paced around all day yesterday. He is gonna drive me nuts! I just know it. We gotta find something to do to keep our minds busy! I just need to figure out how to not be anxious all the time that something will happen to my boy. I know he is growing up and I need to let go but I worry, worry, worry about him. I need to let go and let God huh? I know I should do that but I still worry. How do I not be afraid of the telephone? How do I continue on without feeling such a sence of impending doom? Anyone ever been through this? Please send prayers our way and for my Cody. Hugs!

I had a little car time to work in my art journals and concentrated on this little island theme.
I think I would like to try more of this on watercolor paper. Anyway, back to work tomorrow. But gotta make money to support my art. I'm running low on paint! I have several projects in the works.
- Sister's Birthday Present-August 9th or all of August actually
- Renea's Birthday present-July 18th
- contest for Rust-Oleum-redoing a trunk -before August 18th
- trying to think of something green for the Somerset Studio call for art -August 13th
- Stay Focused on the above! Heehee

I found this other great site where you can generate your own typography. Go HERE! Here are a few of mine that I created this morning. After you create yours, you can save them and print them out and add them as a back ground or whatever to your creative journal.
One more and I will stop-for now! This one is fun too! You can create your own little seals in all different shapes and styles. FUN! Go Here! Here is mine!

I used to think my sister just made that word up! "Ju Ju". You know how sisters are always making up words that only the other sister understands. I knew what she meant when she was saying something either caused good or bad "ju ju". I just thought that this was our special little word. Then I started hearing it on television or movies and I spotted it in magazines and newspapers. Apparently, my sister did not create this word. (Sigh) It seems that everyone else knew this was a real word and it actually has an origin and can be found at Wikipedia. Click on the word Wikipedia to learn more.( I know that this is not actually the most reliable source, but it is there nonetheless).
