One more time...

The last thing for this round of blogging is asking for your kindness and generosity one more time and vote for this painting if you like it. It is being viewed by thousands, including people in many other countries. There is an interesting geo view of where my votes are coming from.

It's actually quite amazing to me that its been viewed from places like China, Japan, Africa, Russia, South America, Canada, and just about every state on the US map. I never dreamed I could get my art viewed by so many diverse people from all over the world.

It feels like success to me whether I move on to the next round in this campaign or not. So thank you once again for every one's help. I couldn't have come near this far without your support. There are roughly two days left to get in those final votes. Then I can relax. Whew, the campaign trail is a rough road. I need to sit a couple out...give all of us a break!

I wrote today...

Particles of dust fallen
From winds of time and space
Primordial past of who or what

Alive creating to learn to grow
Molding a name and a face
Our print a faint presence

We wax we wane in the vast dark
Our world our time our place
Come see our dawn

Just Words

Glow touch spark grow
Know speak flame bestow
Blow futile wind throw
Slow Keen String Sew

Words travel

Elevated above or drowned in noise
Belated in your mind perfect poise
Exonerated lifted mark of choice
Perforated truths frenzied voice

Words travel


Set free in the winds of time
blowing away doubts and fears

Travel and learn the infinite ways of life
Now a super sonic sound wave flying past

Assimilate the knowledge
Curious mind come aboard

Unhinge the world unwind in truth
Trust in the fate that brought you to this point

WOO HOO!!!!!

New Year's Eve is going to be SLAMMIN! I'm going to a private One Eyed Doll party with a date and I can't wait! We are going to have a blast for sure. We will get to see Kimberly rock her little heart out the only way Kimberly can no other I tell ya...and we'll meet all kinds of amazing people. And Three will provide the beat of a lifetime as he rocks out on his little 'ol drums. Go THREE!

I can't wait to see my new friend Maryann too! She is so awesome...I adore that girl. Ahhh, life is good. The new year brings great promise and I'm very excited! :)

Love to All of my Special Peeps

I am having a big time love attack and want all my friends and family to know how much I cherish each of you. I know I don't get to see everybody as much as I'd like to, but know you are always in my thoughts and above all I send you my love. Each of you are special to me in your own way.

Happy Holidays everyone!

Ginny has a Job!

Yep, after sixth months of not being successful finding work, I finally landed a job. It's a temporary to hire position and I have no doubts I'll be hired. The pay is very low to what I'm accustomed to, but once I'm hired full time I will get a raise. I hope it will be a good raise, but some is better than none.

The company is a mortgage company, which is an industry I know little about. Being the receptionist makes it very difficult to get any training in more challenging areas, but my new employers are finding out very quickly that I can handle way more than the job requires. Thankfully they are giving me more to do! I hate being idle in the work place. I've been told several times over that it took me mere hours to learn what it took the girl I replaced three weeks to learn. Yeah, I'm good *pats self*, but then again reception positions are easy as pie.

I like the people there, although they seem a bit stressed out. I'm doing my best to help them anyway I can, it's unfortunate that none of them can slow down long enough to teach me their computer system. I have limited access and am only able to use the internet to look up people's place of employment for employment verification. I know if they would give me the opportunity to learn their software, I could make a huge difference and possibly even find ways to streamline some things. I'm good at that. But they say I am making a huge difference already and they are happy.

The two owners (husband and wife) are nice as can be, and they are so grateful I'm there. It's nice to be appreciated and have received rave reviews. The wife is particularly thanking me all over the place because I've been able to take over the position I'm in with very little help. I'm making it my own and asking her constantly to give me some of her work load. I can see in her face how stressed she is and I want to learn fast so I can be a key player. I wonder if she'd be willing to come in on a weekend and teach me stuff. I should ask...

Never Forget

I'll never forget candy canes...for someone special...and when you read this you'll know. :)

Hi Everyone! An Update...

I joined a new blog called "Daily Painters Marketplace". I was going to create a blog very similar to this one actually, but why re-invent the wheel? I am happy to be a member of this community and add their link to my blog. Hopefully I will make some really nice friends and gain some good contacts. :)

There is some really great artistic talent here. I hope to add my works at some point. Painting has had to take a back burner for now unfortunately. I'm still job hunting and trying to make my way in this world. Thank goodness for the excellent network of friends and family who offer me emotional support. I would be so lost without it.

Things are stressful but I am keeping my chin up and not moping about too much. I hope that is shown here in my blog. I want this to be a fun place to visit on the internet...not a depressing one!

Love and gratitude to all of my friends and supporters!

17 days left!

Hi all,
I only have 17 days left to get my campaign hotter than it is. I need everyone who can to vote, and then pass on the link(see the "share" button). The more people from different sources you can get to vote for me the better! You can send links through email, post them on your blogs, imbed the code directly into your face book accounts, and myspace accts. If you belong to other sites that allow you to post code, you can do that too!

You won't get spam or have to register for anything I promise! Thank you so much bloggers for your continued support. You are a large part of the votes that are coming in. Help me make this thing rise to the top and go as viral as possible. I'm so close to the top twenty...I just need that extra big push to get over the edge and be extremely competitive.

I appreciate each and every one of you!

More Dress Up

I went to a themed party a few weeks back. The theme was Space Disco/Space Opera. So here are pictures for your amusement. I did all the costuming myself for me and my good friend Azzurra. :) The "pod" thing I'm holding was our space baby. It glowed, but that doesn't show up in the picture. Too bad. It was the hit of the party!

I love themed parties!

By the way, Those dresses are my daughter's. She went to two different proms. I was so glad she had these! Azzurra paid for the hair accessories, and the pod was from a lamp I had purchased eons ago. :)

Playing Dress Up!

This is me and my new friend Maryann. We dressed up for a One Eyed Doll concert a couple of weeks ago. Kimberly got a kick out of us! I think we look pretty rockin!
