With Out Answers

I would like to apologize a head of time for this post. This blog is a place I write about things happening in my life as well as my art. The happenings of my life effect my art and art effects my life.
My family has suffered a loss. One without answers. I found out yesterday that my cousin took her own life. There was no note, no hints, no words just the loss of her presence in our lives. She left behind a child who will never remember her Mother and to me this is the saddest thing of all. The sadness for this child has a grip on me like one I have never felt before. I know all too well what it is like to have lost a parent before I got a chance to know or remember them. Their spirit lives on in the minds of others but with so many unanswered questions that you are afraid to ask. Asking brings pain to the one who remember.

My poor Mother is a basket case. She has suffered so many losses of late. Dear friends and family alike. Almost too much for her to take. I feel terrible for her and am no comfort to her at all. How does one comfort someone with a loss? I don't think it is possible. Being there seems to be a good thing but useless at the same time. I just know that either way I am numb from the confusion this has left behind. What Courtney left behind. I hope she has found the peace she was seeking. Beatuiful on the outside and fighting on the inside. Left behind love and pain to those who knew her. With out answers.

I don't know about you but I hope this thing is gone. We don't need it running around breeding. Scary I tell ya.((( Shutters!))) This came in my email, sure looks real anyway. Either way can you imagine? OMG.

Guess what was found just south of Jacksonville... Near the St. Augustine outlet, in a new KB homes subdivision.

15 foot Eastern Diamondback rattlesnake. Largest ever caught on record.

After seeing this, I did a little research, and learned the following:

One bite from a snake this large contains enough venom to kill over 40 full grown men.

The head alone is larger than the hand of a normal sized man.

This snake was probably alive when George H. W. Bush was President.

A bite from those fangs would equal being penetrated by two 1/4 inch screwdrivers.

A snake this size could easily swallow a 2 year-old child.

A snake this size has an approximately 5 and 1/2 foot accurate striking distance. (The distance for an average size Rattlesnake is about 2 feet)

New Creation

Listed my newest creation on TDIPT. If you have a minute maybe you could take a peek on him. I just love that grin.

I went and purchased my paints, curtain fabric today. I am getting excited now. Feels like it is real now. Like it will happen and not if it happens. I can't show you all anything yet, hopefully soon. I am working non-stop and have simply run out of steam.
Off to take 20 winks. Have a good one everyone.

I've been keeping a secret

I have been a busy girl, I have been doing so many things at once that I might have to change my name. To DIZZY. I have been going in circles and have even felt light headed the last few days. No rest and going like I have new batteries. LOL
There is light at the end of that tunnel, one more thing crossed off the old list.
What could that be? Maybe you wonder, maybe you have guessed. It is.....

A BRAND NEW PATTERN! BIZBEE!!! YEAH! You can find it (((HERE)))

This is the first of many I hope for the year 2010. I used to release at least 10 new patterns yearly and last year I only did two. How sad is that?

I have been making up some sweet goodies for a sweet little GIVE AWAY. I am not ready yet, still have a few things to add. Only so much of me to go around girls and it seems that I am in demand at the moment. LOL ya know the list- HOney, MOm, Daughter, Bark & Meow ya know them voices from beyond the mess of paint,thread and fabric. ALWAYS when I have deadlines everyone wants my time or attention. I am not complaining really but geesh could a girl get a break for 24 hours?

Okay gals and guys, I have to get in 20 winks and back to the old sewing room.
Everyone play nice and I will return in a few days with some goodies to share.

Hello Everyone,
Okay just in case ya didn't know, I am always a day late and a dollar short. LOL I have been a very busy girl and you will all know the reasons to that here soon. Just not today. I know such a big tease huh? I am sorry but I promise it will be worth the wait. I have so many ideas going through the gears and grinds that if I don't keep going I am afraid it will slow down and turn to rust. Besides the fact that I have deadlines this week, working on the studio plans( almost 3 months in the making) more on that later.
I sure wish I have a few of here to pick the paint chip though. started with 97. Have narrowed it down to 4 and can't for the life of me choose. So I guess Kater's will doing that for me. Knowing her- she won't like any of them.LOL
Oh there I am rambling again.
Ya came to see Bizbee. Isn't he cute? I just love this little bugger- tee hee get it?

Anyway he will be off to his new home on Monday.

So sad I will miss him. A sweet feller bought him for his Mrs. Wish my hubbers would do a bit of prim shopping but at this point I would be happy if he gets the sand paper and the mail tomorrow. LOL
Okay girls I have to go finish the surprises. I hope you will stop back here soon. I love having friends over.

Just a little Peek

Happy Hello Everyone,
I am back in full swing again and couldn't be happier. I was a little out of it for awhile. Some dark creatures had taken over my creativity and held me captive. I am happy to say I have fought them off and ran away. Back to where I am happiest and free to create as I see fit. I have been busy. Oh I can't hardly wait to show you my latest creation but afraid it can't be shown fully yet. Only a wee little peek.
I have lots of things planned this week so be sure to pop back in over the next few days.
Until we meet again, may you be blessed with Joy and sunshine.
