Just for you!

DISILLUTIONED

So many comments on some of my posts...97 to be exact and most of them were data mining and porn promoting and pedophelia. 

I am so sorry the people who chose to make comments on my blog have nothing better in their lives than to soil someone's legitimate website.

If you want me to promote a clean website, post a very detailed description or better yet...send me an e-mail.  Also, I only speak, write, understand the English language so if your post is in another language or alphabet, I do not open or respond.  

It hurts my heart that I have to put something like this on my blog...but it seems that our world is tumbling into the sewer.  I am determined NOT to allow you to take me with you.

Thank being said, Thank you and God Bless all of my legitimate followers...you are beyond the best! 

Heading for the forest

Will soon be heading to the forest.  Hoping for decent weather, pretty skies and sunsets and maybe a bonus of some wildlife.  

You all stay safe and healthy...talk later!

WOW...did you miss me???

Gosh!  It's been a while since I've posted, hasn't it!  

So today...my old stomping grounds....NYC/Long Island is having a major n'easter...and sorry, kids, can't say I am sorry I'm missing it.  But I love looking at the wonderful photos of freshly falling snow.  I remember loving the special kind of silence early in the morning after it snowed all night...just the most peaceful atmosphere ever!

We've been doing a little reorganizing here...or maybe I should just be honest and say finally getting some organizing done...don't judge LOL!

Today maybe I'll get after that big canvas that has been staring at me for way too long....it has most of the sketching done...gotta get after it!

Soon we will be freshening the woodwork and some of the walls in this place and I'm hoping my ideas will brighten the interior up...I'll post pictures when it's done...

So, peeps...you all have a tremendous start to February!  Stay healthy, be kind and productive...practice love not hate...that feels so much better!

Thanks for liking my work....pass me around...could use some nice sales!

God bless you!

HAPPY, HEALTHY AND SAFE NEW YEAR 2021!

Hope you all have great, but safe plans to ring in the New Year.  We will be at home, just the two of us and the two fur babies...probably won't make it to midnight!

As 2020 draws to a close, I want to thank all my collectors and followers for being there for me, supporting my efforts and purchasing my creations!  This might be the best year I've had yet...so...thank you so very much!

I am hoping to get into a more creative frame of mind in 2021... so if you are so inclined, give me some suggestions for products or images you'd like to see.  

Please share my children's books with friends and family...sales have been very slow...

I'm considering creating a calendar for 2022... using my photography images.  I would love feedback from you so I can gauge the interest in that product.  

So, ya'll, be safe and stay warm and cozy and surrounding yourself with love this year...sprinkle it all over the place!

God Bless!

GREETINGS!

Christmas is only about a week away.  I've been hearing horror stories about slow shipping so I am hoping you all have completed all your gift buying!

I have one more Etsy order to complete and ship.  My customary process for these is to quickly send a proof of the wording to the buyer for approval (spelling and such) and a request for them to confirm the address they provided. I am usually able to get these orders out in a day or two if the buyer cooperates....most do!  This last order, however, has not responded to numerous e-mails and Etsy messages for the past 3 days....Yikes...I hope she doesn't need this by Christmas!  I have made an "executive" decision to complete the order without approval/confirmation of this buyer so she hopefully receives it in time.  My shop does not refund or accept returns so I really don't like to do this, but sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do!

My "this is how we roll" w/fifth wheel painting had two sales to a buyer in California...on sweatshirts!  How cool is that!  I will be creating more camping stuff with graphics of different camper styles in the upcoming year.  I do have the capability of putting a picture of YOUR camper on a shirt.  The Etsy shop will soon have a Camping section...check back for updates!

SOMETHING NEW...

GUEST BOOK...

CAN I ASK A FAVOR OF MY FOLLOWERS?  IT WOULD BE A WONDERFUL THING IF YOU WOULD SIGN THE GUEST BOOK ON MY WEBSITE...and leave a comment...hopefully a nice once...I WOULD ALSO BE APPRECIATIVE IF YOU WOULD SHARE MY BLOG PAGE WITH YOUR ART LOVING FRIENDS AND CRAFT BUYERS.

THANK YOU!

WOW...Christmas is getting close!

Are you done with your gift buying yet?  Have you shopped in your home country?  I hope you have shopped small business locally, too!

You can gift your friends and loved ones with art...either for decorating a room, or on clothes and stuff...check out my Etsy shop, Society 6, Redbubble, Zazzle and Fine Art America to see if there is anything that appeals to you!

Meantime, be happy, healthy and active during the month...oh, and pray that 2021 is a huge improvement in the health arena and that all the progress made to our economy, etc. doesn't slip backward!

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

Well, it's thanksgiving day and I am sure many are busy preparing delicious meals.  Please observe the protocol for health safety for your family and friends.

I am thankful today for my faith in a God that never fails and for family and friends that love and support each other.  I am thankful for tolerant and considerate people.  You are who will help our country and our world survive.

Now, being a day of thanks, please leave a comment on what you are thankful for...despite the state of the world, search deep...we all have an abundance of things we can be thankful for...God Bless!
