Let it rain on me...

The question on today's posting @ highlowaha is "When you close your eyes, what do you see? What do you want? Of all the things you could "order up" for yourself, what would you pick? House with a stone fence? A spot on a sunny beach or in sprawling meadow? A healthy body crossing the finish line of a half-marathon? A relationship? A published book or other work of art?" This one was done earlier this year at one of the Wheel workshops I facilitate. Mine was about ways I can continue being of assistance to our Mother Gaia and how to get/be healthy enough to be on this planet a while longer. It is posted by my bed, right where I look when I roll out of it, actually.


I picked to be healthy, to make less of a carbon footprint, to have more time at home to enjoy the house I manifested with my last Vision Board and the S.O. from the Vision Board before that. Put your mind towards something... place your intentions into the Universe, and have FAITH that She will reply…

I am invincible

The song of the day is probably because the lunar ritual had Helen Reddy's "I am Woman" at the close of it :-) I can't complain. So, forgot to get a cake last night whilst @ HEB+. Is a co-worker's birthday. SOI am off EARLY to purchase one on my way to work...sigh... YAWN...

this is overstamping, 2 colors of ColorBox chalk inks. The sentiment is embossed using a cuttlebug folder in my Sizzix then inked over the raised portion and mounted with double sided foam tape.

How I've become...indestructible

Highlowaha's post was made by Ray today, about our New Year's resolution and not getting up off our butts to do them yet... not true! I went to see doc earlier in the year and we are trying some things to see what can be done about my weight.
I cannot come off my anti-seizure medication but I also cannot lose any weight if my heart rate is too depressed to climb over 90 while I sweat my ass off. Between the seizures & thyroid, my body is ha…

I think you got me all wrong

out of time this morning... spent weekend with migraine & had to work around it so finally fell into a drugged stupor around 8:30pm last night.. makes the mornings hard to get going.... so I now have 10 mins before I have to leave for work and have not even had breakfast yet... sigh.

This is a group shot of another of the "green" series I did. They all have something in common, incl the 4 from the earlier shot. This is the set (plus the other shot) that I did using a group of items to creat as many cards as possible. I also recycled the backing sheet from the stickers (green w/white polka dots).
Some have embossed backgrounds, some are stamped w/VersaMark & then blue EP & heat embossed. The green felt coaster is also in this group as well as the same couple of ribbon rolls. These are all items from the $1 bin @ Michael's, by the way. I wanted to see what type of (and how many) cards could be done for under $10, including the card stock for bases.

great day w/HLA!

well, I don't know how YOU spent the 4th of July... we spent it watering the lawn! And organizing "The Library". Pictures to follow. But today-- today is the most important part of this holiday! We got to meet up with Claudia, Cheryl & Katie from HighLowAha!! Met for lunch at Guero's then headed on over to (news to me) is an Austin icon... Mr. Cupcake. Imagine an Airsteam with a huge cupcake mounted on top dispensing hand size balls of delicious sticky heaven and you'll be close.

Then, we scooted up to N Austin (and boy do I mean NORTH!!) and picked up a GENEROUS donation to the Austin RCG lending library. This is something that we've been trying to get up & running for a while now & it is finally coming together. Ellen kindly doanted several bookcases as well as books, as has Pammyla. Books have been coming in from all over and- with DQ's donation- we will have a right proper library by the end of this month!!

You see, we had ot get ours up …
