Art Wanted

I haven't visited my Art Wanted site in

a while.

I don't offer any of my work for sale on that site

and I never have...

but I have been a member since I feel quite comfortable there.

It's a free site for artists...

Unless you want to sign up for their premium account...

I get lots of comments from the folks who visit there.

I received a request from the folks at

Property Ladder on HGTV (an early 'flip this house' type of show)

inquiring about some of my art work (back in 2005).

They wanted some of my pieces in larger sizes...

but I had to say 'no' husband was going through his

cancer treatments at the time...and I just didn't have the time.'s been a dandy little site for I thought I'd

pass that information along...

to any artist..photographer..or lover of art that might

want to check it out.

Just click on the little banner and it will take you right there!

Computer problems, connectivity issues and more!

I have had soooo many problems lately
with computer connectivity and performance.
Heck...I keep getting the
'blue screen'
and have to start in 'safe mode'
at least once every day....
I can 'see the signs'
my computer is pretty much
on 'life support'
at this point.
I'm borrowing Jaime's old laptop...
it has issues of it's own but,
not as many...
just to try to get all of my online 'stuff' all caught up.
It occurred to me...while dealing with
all of this...that my computer is, at least, five years old
and has had more than it's 'fair share' of use and abuse.
I think it is time to get a new one...
I just have to pray for the sales
so that I can afford it!

Happy Birthday to my son!

Today is my son's, Patrick, birthday!
It doesn't seem all that long ago
that each of my children were just starting
to school.

Well...for this particular child...he is
just starting...again!
He did take some summer classes
at the University...
and this semester he's FULL time. is he celebrating?
He's on stage
in the University production
George Bernard Shaw's
"You Never Can Tell"

He has the part of
'Mr. Crampton'

Fairy Tale Dolls

I sold out of most of my
'Fairy Tale Dolls'
at the last show.

I didn't have time to do as
many new dolls as I would have liked...
I did get an Alice in Wonderland...
a Snow White...
I'm hoping to get a
Rustic Goth "Alice in Wonderland" doll
completed before the week-end.

We'll just have to see
how it goes.

Our next show!

I'm not sure why....
but we didn't take many of my
CMZ Art pieces
to the last show.

So...I'm including a lot more pieces
for next week-end's show.

Jaime, Wendy and I have
been soooo busy
putting together
'wearable art' pendants...
including my...
'Wildflowers and Dragonflies'
and so many
of my most popular
CMZ Art pendants.

I will be listing some of the
pendants in
my Zibbet Shop
early next week.

I also hope to have some
pocket mirrors to list there
in the coming weeks.

I really need NEW shoes!

These are my feet...
and those are my very 'comfy' shoes.
I've had them, I think, for about 5 years...
and I wear them everyday.


my "soles have holes"

It's become increasingly difficult to wear them
outside of my home.
They fill with water whenever it rains...
or even if there's a dew on the grass.

I do have 'other' shoes
these are my 'comfy' ones!

One of these days I'm going to have to
find me a new pair of
comfy shoes...
maybe one of my own
