Creative Technologies are Inspiring!

So this morning while on Facebook for far too long, once again, I came across Wil Wheaton's post about the site This Is My Jam. I'd never seen this site before. Very wonderful and great to hear Beethovan's 9th again...but what was really soul-tingling was the comments under the FB post! Sooo many very creative people saw the beauty in the This Is My Jam website's overall look and in response they wonder about knitting or crocheting the patterns!
I absolutely LOVE that kind of linking of ideas! I hope they do it.

Then I began to wonder, if 
all those sweaters in the eighties
already pieces of music!

come ON! Let's PLAY one!

Have a great day!!

I love to hear what you have to say.

Good Morning...


I start 'work' today.
Work outside the home, that is, and
I don't know how I feel about that.


I guess, is the best way to describe my feelings.
Mixed in with the garden variety, "I wonder if I'll be any good at this. I wonder if they'll like me."
is the grief of missing my little guy.

We haven't spent a day apart.
And even though, today is broken into chunks (I'll come home for lunch) it's the loom of the series of days to follow this one. The sadness I've seen in other mother's eyes, creeping into mine, that I'm nervous of.

Today's wiccan power color is Black: the void.

So I shall do that release my grief into the void, step out into the unknown, and get set for adventure.

Let go and let god.

Here's to a great day for us all!!

Friday Etsy Meanderings

I've gotten a burst of energy this morning.
Maybe because I'm headed to my family's for some R&R,
Maybe because my birthday is coming up and I've been applying for work, lately,
I feel a surge of new beginning,
whatever the reason, I thought
why not post this morning...
before yoga and pulling weeds.

This is an original oil by Jennifer Greenfield at AstralArts, titled 'Surrounded'.

Doesn't it just have 
all the magic that your heart feels 
when you watch a sunset ...or this morning... a sunrise?

I think that it's perfect.

 As I was cleaning out my email, I came across the Dutch Etsy newsletter, and instantly fell in love with 
Sandra at SandraDieckmann has created this illustration for your enjoyment, on paper and tote bags, and 
she has so many fanatastic creatures you're bound to find your totem spirit there,
or at the very least, an creature who's company you enjoy ;)

These spunky darlings at LizardsJewelry from Lovettsville,Virginia. Made of polymer clay and sterling silver. Wow. I don't know about you, but I am amazed of the ways people use polymer clay!
It just doesn't inspire me, but then I see things that other people make and I'm
BLOWN AWAY! Polymer Clay? Really?

Stackable, stretch bracelets: LOVE THEM!!
You get this whole set, everything you see here: $26 Buckeroos!
I'm not even kidding.

Stunning, just stunning.
Well, I hope that you all have a wonderful time celebrating whatever you are
celebrating this fine summer weekend, hoist a toast to me, and my birth, would ya,
Dance, always make time to DANCE!

All the best!!

New Experiments Around the Homestead

Usually I'm one to give something a try once, as long as it's not 
Bungey Jumping or Sky Diving,
so when I saw this on Pinterest and Z had the start of a cold
I thought,
what the heck, I'll take some too.
It hasn't worked in 5 hours like the post here said,
but I DO feel better

and it tastes like a hot tamale

what's wrong with that?

Here's hoping that you have a great day!!

A Mid-Week Find

So I was just roaming around Etsy, as I'm wont
to do,
I saw 

be still my heart.


I'm surprised

Surprised and a little tickled.

You're still checking in to see if I've written. You're reading old posts.


Thank YOU!

I've been thinking of returning to this blogging thing and pondering the direction I'll take it,
I thought

no one was out there.

So Thank you.

Have a great day!
