Thank you Jesse!

I wanted to post this earlier, but the holiday choas etc, has kept me very busy! JESSE!!!! I got my painting and I LOVE LOVE LOVE it so much. It is really cool and I can't wait to get my own place and find a special spot for it.

I think I have a name..."The Trials and Tribulations of the Heart"

Thank you so much for being my friend and for who you are. I hope someday we can meet in person. There are so many friends that I wish I could meet in person. I have a special one in Australia that I would love to go meet! And I feel I have a special one in California now that I could totally hang out with(you Jesse of course), and I have a special friend in Big Bend named Ara that I would love to meet.

All of my friends are special and unique. You all bring joy to me in your own ways and I am thankful I have met you.

Check it Out! I'm Getting this in the Mail Soon!

My good friend Jesse painted this most incredible piece of art for me. I can't wait to have it in my hands because I'm dying to touch the texture and study the piece closely. I think Jesse's use of color is perfect! I am thrilled because I get to name this painting. I have to wait on naming it though, so I can get a good feel for it once I've held it. Jesse is a very talented man...he is what I would call a renaissance man. Jesse you rock!

Amazing colors, texture, placement, balance!

Check out how amazingly different this angle makes it look! Such an interesting piece!

And yet another angle to admire! It seems like every which way it's turned, it just pops and I see something new.

And now the bottom angle. I love how the sparkles give it the perfect touch! This is a fine art piece!

Voting is Easy and it's for a Great Cause...ME! :)

Please go vote some more! I am thinking I really have a good shot at this with continued support and am so excited to be so close. If you click on the "share" button in the box, you can add a voting box like this one to your blogs and also to your other web haunts...such as Myspace, Facebook, Live Journal, MyYearbook, Hi5, etc... It's so easy to do and you don't have to be a brickfish member in anyway to do so. I appreciate all of you!

Ouch, I'm so behind in my blogging!

Well here is an update my friends. I've still been heavily campaigning for my art at brickfish and also still hunting for work. I called some temp agencies today and feel like that might be my best bet now for getting a foot in the door somewhere. I can certainly feel the bite of an economy going bad. Yikes!

My car broke down, and is getting fixed. Hopefully it will be ready Thursday and I won't have to deal with repairs again for a long time. The clutch went out which is a pretty expensive repair. The unfortunate news is that it wasn't even my fault. Some friend of Samantha's ended up driving my car without my permission and she claimed she knew how to drive a standard...but she did not. The mechanic thinks she rode the clutch which destroyed it. I'm trying to get money from her for repairs before I take it to court. I hope she makes good on what she did wrong.

Last Friday night I went to see my favorite band One Eyed Doll and will have pictures up soon. :)
I'm about to enter another campaign that pays one thousand dollars to the winner. I will be using the pictures of Kimberly from One Eyed Doll in this new campaign. She is happy that I'm doing this because I will bring her publicity. She will also continue to support my art campaign. Cool stuff!

I'm ranked number 4 out of almost 7,000.00 entries! I am so proud of that. There are only about 40 days left in the campaign and more than ever I need votes and people to spread the links around for others to join in. I'll create another post for that purpose and let everyone know when the new campaign starts. :)

Peace to all,

These hungry Monarch caterpillars raced to the top and met face to face. Aren't they cute?

I am just loving life!

How can I be so amazingly happy? I think it's because I'm finding myself and because I'm connecting with so many awesome people! I'm always going to be rich with love and that just makes my heart swell to giant proportions.

Rich with Love

I give, you give back
I love, you love back
My heart swells, so does yours
We give meaning to each other, and it's good
We all connect in the soup of life
We eat heartily,find warmth, and glow with satisfaction
