~Fiber & Paint~

I'm Always Trying To Come Up...
With Something A Bit Different...
I've Been In Love With...
Fiber Lately...

Makin' My Trees Cozy...
Crocheting Afghans...
Ponchos, Slippers & More...

Mixed Media Seems...
To Still Have My Interest...
But, It Was Time To Mix It Up...
Even MORE!

So I Decided To Combine The Two..
Fiber & Paint!!
I'd Knitted A LONG Piece Of Garter Stitch...
That Was Suppose To Become A Poncho...
That Was Not To Be...

I Hated To Throw It Away...
The Yarn Was Just So Yummy...
So I've Been Cutting It Apart...
Using It In My Mixed Media...

Adding More Yarn~y Goodness...
With Crocheted Flowers...
Topping The Pieces Off...
With Some Hand Stitched Sayings!!

It's Nice To Be In A Creative Coma...
Letting My Mind Be Free ....
Going Wherever The Fiber & Paint...
Take Me....

To See Closeups Of These Pieces...
Click On The Photo You'd Like To View...
Then Click On The Tiny Thumbnail ....
And A LARGE Detailed Photo Will Pop Up!

Enjoy!

~Yarn Bombing~

I Fell In Love...
With Yarn Bombing...
When I Saw It...
In Person...
While In Eureka Springs, Ar....

I Need Mindless Right Now...
Crocheting... 
Using Up Scraps...
Yarn Bombing...
My Own Trees...

Free Form Crocheting...
Just Trying To Let The Process...
Take Over ...
Letting Go Of My Thoughts...
With The Motion Of  The Hook & Yarn...
Putting Me In A Trance...

 It Would Be So Easy..
To Just Wallow In Sorrow...
I Refuse To Be That Person...
I Refuse To Be Weak...

When The Person I Lost...
Fought So Hard...
Was So Strong...
Never Complained...
Never Wallowed In Self Pity... 

So I Will Find Comfort..
So I Will Find Joy...
So I Will Stay Strong...

For Her....

~Sad Heart & Dark Days~

We Have All Been There...
I Know I'm Not Alone...
That My Experience Is Not Unique...
Going Through The Extreme Pain...
Of  Having A Very Sad Heart...
And Feeling Like The Days Will Be Forever Dark...
 
There Is No Need For Me To Explain...
What Has Happened Within My Family...
To Cause Me Such Heartache...
And Lead Me To Reflect On Life...
What Choices I Need To Make...
For My Own Emotional Well Being...

Emotionally It's Impossible...
For Me To Return To My Job...
At This Time...
Maybe Not Ever...
Being Face To Face With People...
In An Environment That Is Suppose To Be Fun...
A Place They Come For Entertainment...
 
Hiding Out In My Home...
Is All I Can Cope With Right Now...
 
I Can Hide Behind My Computer...
Put On A Happy Face...
For A Video...
Pretend All Is Fine...
Switch The Off Button...
So Then I Can Crumble... 
 
My Life Is No Different Than Most Of You...
I Have To Make Money ...
Society Dictates That I Do...
If I Can Not Leave My Home To Work...
Then I Must Make Money While At Home...
 
So At This Time...
I Am Going To Be Offering...
My Funked Up Art...
At Low Starting Prices...
Starting Tomorrow
8-24-17
 
Thank You In Advance...
If You So Choose To ....
