The Child Is Alive!!

  You have to look VERY closely at the pots to understand this. I planted a variety of lettuce, onions, green beans and zuchinni yesterday and today in these pots and egg cartons. So whats the big deal? I've been running out every few minutes since I planted them to see if anything has started to come up!!!
  Now, the point is....the me who pays the bills, worries about feeding us, keeping the house, and all those other responsible grown up type things would never do this. But, here I am, looking for miracles, instant plants, just like a child would do!! This is the me I'm bringing out from behind the walls, from under the bed, or wherever else she's been hiding. THE ARTIST!!
 There is hope!! :)

Primrose Lilac
Drawing the Ivy growing out back.

Ferns add a surreal beauty to flowers.

 I can't get over all the different greens outside. Everytime I look there's more: deeper, brighter, more blues, more yellows. I was SO hungry for Spring and she's finally arrived. Hope everyone has time to enjoy....put the cell phone away and really LOOK!!

Tulips and Ferns may be my favorite combination.

Snowman in Spring

Well, here he is!! I'm so happy I've finally finished SOMETHING!! He is made of paperclay over styrofoam balls. Even the berries in the greens were made of paperclay. I have a doll I shall work on next. She's a tad frightening right now...teeheeee!
  I've started selling Avon, again, just to bring in a little extra cash. The unemployement just isn't enough and yet, unless I find a job that I truely love I'm not working for anyone again!! There is no such thing as job security, that I see all around me. And I have a pissy attitude about anything "corporate". I feel that if we all stopped working for people who take everything we have to give, including our joy, and then toss us, maybe they'd see that without us they wouldn't exist!! Okay, I'll step down off the box now. But, since I have gotten involved on the computer, blogging, FB, and just browsing, I am constantly amazed at all the talent out in our world. And these people are living at home, raising children, helping animals, AND selling their work. And they're HAPPY!!! Bravo to all of you!! There definitely is a better and happier way to live and I'm now striving for that balance in my life. I hope you all have it in yours! I really do!
