8.15" In The Past 24 Hours...
Breaking 200 Year Old Records With The Rainfall...
So Of Course It Would Make Me Create CATS!

~AUCTIONS~

If You Happened To Watch My Latest YouTube Video...
Whelp..There Was Lots Of Ranting Goin' On...
I Tend To Struggle With My Business Brain...
I Do NOT Want A Business...
I'll Be 62 This Year...
I Definitely Feel Like I've Worked Hard All My Life...
And Deserve This Time To Do Whatever The Hell I Want...

BUT....
The Side Of My Brain That Is So Programmed ...
To Turn Every Damn Thing I Enjoy Into A Money Making Business...
Whelp I Struggle Daily With That...
I Won't Go Into Lots Of Details Here About My Turmoil...
As I Ranted Quite A Bit About It In The Video...

I Truly Want To Create For The Sake Of FUN...
BUT...
Then That Damn Business Brain Of Mine Says...
"Hey Old Lady...
You Know That You Could Turn This Into A Business Again..
With All The FREE Marketing Available Today"...
Join Some Groups...
Get Involved In Some Forums...
Join Facebook...
In Other Words...Kiss Some Ass....

The Other Side Of My Brain...
SCREAMS...NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO......
Cuz I've Never Liked The Taste Of Ass.... 
All Joking Aside..
It's A Real Struggle For Me...
I Have NO Idea How To Relax...

I'll Get To The Point...
I'm Gonna Start Doin' Some Auctions...
I'll Be Starting The Auctions At VERY Low Prices...
This Will Force Me To Let Go Of  My Business Brain A Bit...

I Remember Many Moons Ago When I Was In The Throes Of...
Doin' Hickety Pickety As A Full Time Living...
Seein' Goods Sold At Low Low Prices By Others...
Everyone Could Design Patterns And Offer 'em Online...
As There Wasn't Any Need To Pay The Big Bucks...
To Advertise In Magazines Any More...
I Admired These Gals...
Creating For The FUN Of It!!

I Remember Thinking Then...
WOW!  How Great It Would Be...
To Just Create For Giggles & Kicks...
Makin' Just A Lit'l Play Money...
Soooooooooooo.....
So Here I Am...FINALLY!!
It's My Time To Experience The Giggles & Kicks!!!
My Only Want Is To Have My MANY Hobbies Pay For Themselves...
And As Ya All Know That Create...
Supplies Cost Money....

Hope Your Day Is Full Of Giggles & Kicks!!

~Creating Canvases~

I've Been Doing So Much Creating Lately...
I Can't Remember What I've Shared...
And What I've Not Already Bragged About...
So If I Repeat Myself...
Whelp...It Just Shows How Excited I Am About This Stuff!!

If Ya Know Me At All...
Then Ya'll Not Be Surprised To Read...
That If I LOVE Somethun...
I Find A Place To Display It All Year Round!

I Want To Be Surrounded By Stuff That Makes Me Smile...
I've Learned As I've Gotten Older...
That When Folks Say..
"Life Is Too Short"...
Damn, That Is Soooo True...

So I Reckon That There's NO Reason...
To Save Stuff For Later...
Only Enjoy Stuff At Certain Times Of The Year...
I'm Extremely Lucky To Have A Big Area...
To Create In...
That Area Is Full Of Stuff For Every Season & Holiday...

I've Also Gotten Over Thinkin' Everything Has To Be Styled...
Meaning..I Don't Care If I Have A Really Primitive Piece...
Next To A China Floral Plate...
I Don't Care If I Have A Whacky Whimsical Funky Piece...
Next To A Diamond Painting Of Mona Lisa!! 

I LOVE The Eclectic Way Of  Decorating...
I LOVE Homes That Are Unusual...
I LOVE Walking Into A Home...
Seeing LOADS Of Personality...
I Don't Like Fads...
I've Never Gotten Caught Up In That...

Try To Find Yourself A Space...
Even If It's A Tiny Area...
Like A Bathroom Or Even One Little Wall...
That Can Be Your Gallery Of Art That You LOVE!

With Sayin' All Of That...
I Created Some Halloween Themed Canvases...
Along With Stuff I Consider Being "Every Day" Type Of Art...
I Just LOVE Everything About Halloween...

When I Start Creating Stuff...
It Just Takes On A Life Of It's Own...
I Didn't Plan On Creating Halloween...
It Just Happened!!!
