I feel pretty foolish this evening :0

So today I was pretty irritated that my hubby didn't call me.text me or take me out to lunch-so I didn't call him or text him either. I didn't talk to him on the way home-and I was pretty rude to him even though he helped me with chores-carrying the feed bags and dragging the hose out to the barn and then dragging it back in-I was pouting in the barn-then I came in and look what was waiting for me~~~
Boy did I feel BAD!!! And then the horses got out-it took both of us 45 minutes to get 3 or the 4 back in-and now he is making Fettuccine Alfredo with Asparagus!  My favorite!!!!   I am sorry Honey-I love you & I am a very lucky gal.
BTW I made him 2 potholders last night on my pot holder loom because he burnt himself the other night cause all the pot holder were old and worn out!!! Love my old pot holder loom!!!!

Bee nice to your Honey :} Learn from my big mistake!!!!!!!

I hate it When a "Great"Idea doesnt work!!!

So I was gonna make a really cool tile bracelet with clay. I rolled out my scuply and cut the tiles-then tried to push a toothpick through them to make the holes-well that messed up the tiles and some of the picks went through the back -ugggg and grrrrrr--so I took out my LaDoll Airdry-well lets just say that didn't work AT ALL :}

Any ideas? I am getting frustrated!!!

I was out to buy a new printer tonight-the HP i got was just not cutting it and was a real PITA -if yah know what I mean :}  So I went to Office Max--just to look-didn't see anything I liked-the Melissa came over and asked hay I was looking for -I told her a wireless printer with a scanner under 100 bucks-well yah know what she showed me!!!!!!! an Epson NX515 for 33 bucks!  I  was a bit suspicious-i checked all the specs-it all looked right-had hubby recheck it-he thought it was OK-So I bought it :} How cool is that?? I went in expecting to pay 100 bucks for a decent printer!-I told Melissa I didn't want to pay much cause they wear out and yah cant fix em-she said- yup your right and took me too this beauty :} I am so gonna give Melissa a glowing report when I fill out the survey!!! As she ddnt try to power sell me-she took me to the best deal! Thanks Melissa!

Opps I goofed!!!!

I made a mess up!! Basil the Bunny is Wendy's pattern! Not Rachel!!! Wendy I am so sorry-I am BAD with names :}Again is where this awesome wonderful free pattern is created by WENDY :}   Thanks so much for letting me know!!!!!!!!!


This Basil the Bunny! Rachel at Ravenwood Whimzies is having a little challenge to see what we can make with the free pattern she offered! This is my start :}

Mmmmmm Fiber:}

This the fiber from a Leister Longwool ewe-I dyed it with a new dye I found at Joannes. Dylon Dye doesn't require boiling the fiber,only warm water and leaves it so much more luxurious! And so much softer-I cannot wait to spin this out!!!!

Wordeless Wednesday

My Zentangles

The first ones I did late one night-or early one morning in December when I couldn't sleep. The last one I did a couple days ago when everyone was talking about Zentangels. Oh -that last colored one that isn't a horse-is one of my Alpine Goats! The colored one were done with oil pastels. the last one with a Sharpie.

More Exerpts from Julia Cameron

More things to think about!!!~~~~~~ From Julia Cameron's book The Artist's Way Every Day

Artists date fire the imagination.They spark whimsy.They encourage play.Since art is about "the play of ideas",Artists Dates feed our work.They gently replenish the inner well. Artist Dates restock our supply of images.

The obsession with time is really an obsession with perfection.

When we are clear about who we are and what we are doing,the energy flows freely and we experience no strain.When we resist what that energy might show us or where it might take us,we often experience a shaky, out-of-control feeling.We want to shut down the flow and regain our sense of control.We slam on the psychic brakes.Every creative person has myriad ways to block creativity.The choice to block always works in the short run and fails in the long run.

The divine mind knows no distance. When we ask to be lead,we are lead.When we ask to be guided,we are guided. When we ask to be taught,we are taught. Guidance and generosity are always closer at hand than we may think.It always falls to us to be open to receiving guidance and to pry for the willingness and openness to know it when it arrives.

The ego wants us to be "in the mood" to make art at the very least. and any working artist will  honestly tell you,waiting for the mood is a huge time waster.We are married to our art and just as the first caress can lead to interest between a long-married couple,the first lick of work can lead to an appetite for work.In other words, mood more often follows action than instigates.

Anything worth doing is worth doing badly.How we hate that idea.We know it as beginners but forget as we advance. Trail-and-Error becomes beneath our dignity.Of course it does.It pulls the rug out from underneath our seriousness.We don't really have a nice big block to stand behind while we "figure things out". Whats to figure out?

Remember that art is process.The process is supposed to be fun. For our purposes,"the journey is always the only arrival" may be interpreted to mean that our creative work is actually our creativity itself at play in the field of time. At the heart of this play is the mystery of joy.

We need a more artful world, and that means we need you and the specific contribution that you and you alone can make.

Sometimes we need to sit up and ignore the cricks in our back and shoulders and just begin.That's how it is with art.We just need to begin Begin where you are,with who you are.

We've all heard that the unexamined life is not worth living.but consider too that the unlived life is not worth examining.The success of a creative recovery hinges on our ability to move out of the head and into action
