instead of

commenting on your wonderful work I have been messing about trying to clean two angels up, I succeeded with one, but the other simply refuses to be cleaned, perhaps it is my programme, perhaps it is her haha. Someone commented they didn’t like the black bits, so hopefully they are gone. They weren’t put up with a view to selling them, they were for the sick and needy., and anyone wanting one or both send me your e-mail and I will send them to you. Love and hugs Hilaryxxx

First of all

I want to thank all the wonderful people who viewed, commented and favourited my work, you have no idea how much I appreciate that, and secondly I wish to apologize for neglecting you all. This time of year is my busiest time, people are so afraid of being ill at Christmas, I am worked off. So please accept my apologies, and any minute I can get on here I will. but, I am sure you will appreciate my patients must come first. I love you all, you are a wonderful family. Love and hugs to all of you Hilaryxxx

a little joke to brighten your day - or night - sharing

2008’s First Christmas Joke

Three men died on Christmas Eve and were met by Saint Peter at the pearly gates.

‘In honor of this holy season’ Saint Peter said, ‘You must each possess something that symbolizes Christmas to get into heaven.’

The first man fumbled through his pockets and pulled out a lighter. He flicked it on. ‘It represents a candle’, he said.

‘You may pass through the pearly gates’ Saint Peter said.

The second man reached into his pocket and pulled out a set of keys. He shook them and said, ’They’re bells.’

Saint Peter said ‘You may pass through the pearly gates’.

The third man started searching desperately through his pockets and finally pulled out a pair of women’s panties.

St. Peter…

the abstracts of star signs

I have saved most of them, if anyone wants theirs, just send me an e-mail and if I have it, you can gladly have a copy. love and hugs. my e-mail address is hilarydougill@talktalk.net. That can be my Christmas present to you haha. hugsxxx

Barry Norton

sends his apologies, he has a really bad cold and an even worse cough, so he isn’t on at the moment, I spoke to him this morning and he asked me to send this. hugsxxx

I feel I should explain

why I rarely comment on your black and white photos or greyscale pictures. I is because I cannot see them. I explained about my funny 3D eyes, and anything in colour is absolutely glorious, but make it b/w or greyscale and I cannot differentiate between images, it just becomes a grey blob, I was mortified when flowers in macro decided to make them b/w, no way can I even look at them. so please forgive me for not commenting. love and hugs to all. Hilaryxxx

sorry folks

I have no pictures again!!!! Not even on the Home page. I have put it up three times with three different search engines and still no piccies. will have to leave it for a while and see if the glitch gets sorted, and it isn’t even Friday haha. Love you all. hugs Hilaryxxx

Have you seen

the work of the wonderful artist

Villy Nickolov

He has divine paintings, they would make a wonderful children’s book, or illustrations for an adult book for that matter, they are so colourful, and beautifully done. Do go and give him some TLC, comments and watchlists, he is family. Love you all. hugs Hilaryxxx
special hugs for the linkmakerxxx

This is for one of you

You may need help from co-workers on a major work project. Being a true leader, you’ll give them the credit they deserve. Try not to make any risky financial investments today. Do something healthy like playing with your children after work. Romance will be great tonight and possibly more enticing than usual.

I had an enquiry

this morning about the quantities for the Sweet chutney. Work on the priniciple of one pound of each ingredient, making more or less as required, and always just cover with vinegar. love and hugs Hilaryxxx

Gosh

I don’t check my features very often and I have 4 in Angels Wings and Heaven, thank you so very much for that, They featured all of my funny experimental christmas cards and my tribute to Jack. I am so honoured. Hugs and love and angel xxxxx to you.

Sweet Chutney

You do not cook this one.You need Apples, Onions , Sugar, Vinegar and dried fruit.

Cut up your apples and onions small, or mince if you prefer, Place them in a bowl, and add the dried fruit, Pour over Sugar, about two cupfuls to start in a fairly large bowl, make it less if the bowl is less, cover with vinegar, I use sherry, or Raspberry vinegar, but ordinary is fine. Stir.
Cover this with a clean cloth and leave.
Every day you stir it, and every day the vinegar will be absorbed into it, by the end of the week, all the vinegar will be into the fruit, and it is ready to jar up. Again put a cling film over the top of the filled jars and place the lid tightly on it.
Enjoy. hugs.

Turkish Marmalade

this recipe was given to me in turkey by a Turkish Ambassador’s wife.

You needs. Orange, Lemons, Grapefruit, I also use tangerines, and a lime (this latter makes it thick, I hate preserves which fall off the knife when I am trying to spread them haha)
You cut up the fruit (recommend you do it on a large plate so as not to lose any of the juice) Just slice the fruit whole, and then into small pieces, leave the skins on. Place in a large pan and cover with water, bring to the boil and then simmer. Do not add sugar at this juncture. Simmer until the skins are soft. Then you add sugar, usually a pound of sugar to 2 pounds of fruit, but this varies, again, use your judgement, by the taste. Bring to the boil, stirring all the time, and then simmer. It will get thicker and when you place a …

Recipe for Schnapps Liqueur.

Fruit of your choice, I use Raspberries, Strawberries, Sloes, Pears, Apples. Apricots and Peaches. all separately of course. I hasten to add at this point, I don’t drink haha. I make them for my family and friends.

A bottle of good Vodka
and the fruit of your choice.
You need a clean glass jar, better if it is coloured.
Half fill the jar with your prepared fruit (i.e. peeled, cored and cut up)
Pour on your Vodka until it is about two thirds full, leave room for the sugar.
Add sugar, at this juncture it does not really matter how much, just use about a cup full, stir
Put on the lid and leave.
Every day you stir the concoction., and when you have finished and before you put the spoon to be washed, taste it,
Use your discretion and add sugar if and when you feel it needs it. The more sugar add…

Just had a thought

Today is the day for making the Turkish Marmalade. As I was preparing the fruit I wondered if anyone would like me to post the recipes for the preserves I make. There is sweet Pickle, which you don’t have to cook, and is wonderful, the Turkish Marmalade, the Schnapps Liqueur, which you need to make now for Christmas, even better for Christmas next year, and quite a few other things. I don’t want to bother ty;ping them out and posting them if no one is interested, but if some of you would like me to I most certainly will. You can even give them as Christmas presents, Mine are always well received. Hugaxxx

It is a glorious day here so I am going out in it in search of piccies of my own. love and hugs, love you all. Hilaryxxx and I am so very sorry.

Anyone in the Newcastle area can have a lift with Michael Oubridge, please contact him direct. It is a lovely place and so much to see, you can buy deer food at the Bistro, along with human food. haha.and can shoot deer to your heart’s content with your camera.

on her site, one in particular, Gorilla Gaze has to be seen to be believed, for some reason her work does not seem to be coming past us, I would really love it if you would go over there and comment on her work, she is being really neglected through no fault of her own. Love you all lots. Hilaryxxx

Thank you each and every one

for your comments, viewing, favouriting and generally being there and being YOU. I do appreciate you all, and I am sure you understand I cannot reply to you all individually, if you ask a question, then I will. I love you all. Love and hugs and blessings Hilaryxxx

Apologies for my absence

Yesterday I was away all day, fruit picking, I know have Brambles, Plums, Tomatoes,and Apples, so the big jam, pickles, Schnapps fest will begine haha. I do apologize for not commenting on your work, I promise tomorrow I will try and catch up, today is family day, so I will be absent most of today also. The weather here is beautiful, we have had three wonderful hot, sunny days, and today looks to be the same, so I might get some much needed Vitamin D. Love you all.hugs Hilaryxxx

I am a bit puzzled

I had a work on here called Taurus with a difference, suddenly it has been removed. I didn’t remove it. Where has it gone? Do RB remove things? Has it galloped off into the sunset? anyone any idea? hugsxxx

Further to what Ginger said

the other day someone wrote a journal saying that some of the work on here is not so good and yet people were praising it, This has disturbed me a bit, because there is always something to see in a picture which can be commented on positively., and my Father bless him, has a saying. ‘If you cannot think of something good to day, don’t say anything’  I think this is true of Red Bubble comments also, IF you don’t like it, leave it alone and pass by, do not criticize unless it is constructive criticism to help that person get it right, and then do it in a bubble., do not humiliate anyone in full view of everyone else. A lot of artists, in fact most I would say, have tender egos, and are easily knocked back, they are their own worst critics, and if they are criticized …

another true funny

A dear lady came to see me one day, and whispered
’It’s me water’
I whispered back ’ What’s the matter with it?’
her reply ’ ’ It’s consecrated’
After almost choking trying not to laugh.
I said
‘Sweetheart, the Pope would love you’
She meant of course concentrated. hugsxxx

Just a funny I just remembered

a few years ago a friend worked in a care home for the elderley, and they had a very difficult man in the home. She came to visit one night and said ‘I saved a life today’ I said ‘wonderful, what did you do?’ her reply, ‘I decided not to kill the old bugger’.

Today's laugh- sharing this, its not me!!!! hugs

Quote for the day:

‘Whatever you give a woman, she’s going to multiply.

If you give her a house, she’ll give you a home.

If you give her groceries, she’ll give you a meal.

If you give her a smile, she’ll give you her heart.

She multiplies and enlarges what is given to her.’

So – if you give her crap,

you will receive more shit than any one human being can handle!

Thank You

All things Poetic, Philosophical and

Once you have been charged we will do everything in our power to keep your monies; refunds are last on our list of priorities. Any attempt to contact a higher authority such as your credit card company, bank, or the better business bureau will be an exercise in futility.

I am so sorry

you are being a bit neglected this morning and afternoon, but I purchased something for a patient from the internet and someone has hacked into their site and is stealing money out of my account every month. This morning they hacked in and sent me an e-mail saying they didn’t care and were going to take money until they had me over the limit where they could, so I have had to contact the fraud team of my bank, and I am going to have to change my card, pin number, bank account number, and all kinds of things. Unfortunately I only have the one debit card and no credit cards, so until this is resolved I am going to have to get a credit card, messy but necessary. So please forgive me until I get this sorted. love and hugs to all. xxx

A lovely lady

Will you do me a favour please

I posted Sunset over Water earlier and only one person seem to have seen it, Will you please check for me if it came up, or is this a figment of my imagination?

thank you so very much TeriLee for purchasing a card of Angel wih Halo flooded, I am absolutely thrilled, and I hope she brings you much joy and happiness. love and hugs Hilaryxxx

I feel I should tell you

when I look at your wonderful work, I do not see what others see or even you. I have a ‘fault’ in my eyes, I have perfect eyesight, better than 20/20.but I have 3D vision.. When I look at something flat , I see it as if it was risen up and in 3D. So your work is even more beautiful than when you see it flat. haha. I don’t look on it as a ‘fault’ but as a gift, I am sure the world of print is far more beautiful to me than to other people. When you look around you at an object, you can see it proud away from other things, that is the only way I can describe how I see things. I didn’t even know I had it for years, in fact until those 3D books came out that people used to pore over, I just ‘saw’ them as usual. haha, Didn’t even know what I…

For all of you from me.

According to the ancient Law of Karma, we are the architects of our own fate. Karma is the result of our past actions and own present doings. So all the good we do in this life comes back to us threefold. My grandfather ( a very wise old man) used to say. ‘Cast thy bread upon the waters and it comes back buttered’ meaning of course that whatever good you do always comes back, but much better, The same goes of course for bad deeds, what goes round comes around,. Sometimes in life people can be very trying, but I always say to myself, ‘they are paying you back for whatever you did to them in a previous life’ Some people I feel a responsibility for, for no reason whatsoever, and feel I have to do things for them, way above the realms of duty. I can only hope that wha…

I am having real problems

We went back to the no pictures, no avatars and no art. I blamed a new download of Mozilla Firefox, an upgrade, so went onto Internet Explorer, I now have pictures, BUT, when I try to download any art, as soon as I go to Browse, it throws me out on my ear, right back onto my desktop. Have absolutely no idea what is going on, it is not my computer because everything else is running so fast I can hardly keep up with it, where RB is like watching paint dry. I am going to try and post this and add some comments, if you get missed please forgive me, it is not my fault. I managed to catch up earlier, but now I will be right back again. love and hugs to all. Hilary xxx

I have just had a good chuckle

I entered the angel with the halo flooded into Fantasy Art , where it has been rejected, it does not conform to their guidelines. I would have thought an angel sitting in a pool of water would be fantastical by anyones standards, it is not something you see everyday haha. Nevermind, there is another group out of the window. hugsxxx

Happy Birthday

to dear Freelancer. I hope you have a spectacular time, and once old Pluto gets moving in November you will have an even better time. Love and hugs sweetheart on your special day. Hilaryxxxx

For all of you wonderful people out there. hugs

As we grow up, we learn that even the one person that wasn’t supposed to ever let you down probably will.
You will have your heart broken probably more than once and it’s harder every time. You’ll break hearts too,so remember how it felt when yours was broken.
You’ll fight with your best friend.
You’ll blame a new love for things an old one did.
You’ll cry because time is passing too fast,
and you’ll eventually lose someone you love.
So take too many pictures, laugh too much, and love like you’ve never been hurt because every
sixty seconds you spend upset is a minute of happiness you’ll never get back.
Don’t be afraid that your life will end,
Be afraid it will never begin

Just to make you laugh

It is Bank Holiday Monday here in England and everyone has a day off, or supposed to have a day off, but I thought I would pop on her and give you all a laugh.

Remember the Blackcurrants in the garden? Well I made Jam, solid as a rock Jam with wonderful black currants still whole in in, so you tasted the fruit. Well, I gave a jar to an elderly relative., and the next time I saw him I asked if he had enjoyed it.
his reply ’ It wasn’t cooked enough’.
me. ‘Pardon? how was it not cooked enough?’
him ’ It still had big lumps of fruit in it, so I knew it wasn’t cooked enough’’

I started to laugh and he was most put out at me laughing and retorted. ‘Well it wasn’t’.

Believe me dear friends if it had been cooked any more I w…

I want to thank each and every one of you

who have visited my gallery, looked, commented and favourited, and to all the groups who have featured my work. I am sure you would rather all have comments on your work than me thank each of you individually, and I honestly cannot do both. So from the bottom of my heart Thank You so very much for the wonderful comments. They are so appreciated. And to my Surrogate family. God Bless. hugs and love. Hilary xxxxx

For the Girls of RB with love

Today is International Very Good Looking, Damn Smart Woman’s Day, so please send this message to someone you think fits this description. Please do not send it back to me as I have already received it from a Very Good Looking, Damn Smart Woman! And remember this motto to live by: Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, wine in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming ‘WOOO HOOOOO what a ride!’

Have a wonderful day !

To the Girls !!

50 things about me to bore you stiff

1. Do I like blue cheese? No way, I really don’t like cheese at all
2. Have you ever smoked a cigarette,? I think I was about 8 years old and my cousin has stolen one from an uncle and we would share it. I hated it, but said uncle caught us and lit two and made us both smoke one, I turned green and was very sick, never smoked another, my cousin loved it and has smoked ever since.
3. Do you own a gun? Whatever would I want one for? I have a glue gun which is quite handy.
4. What flavour to you add to your sonic? What is a sonic?
5. Do you get nervous before a Doctor’s appointment? of course not, I am one haha.
6. Do you like Hot-dogs.? Not at all, wouldn’t eat one. Warm dog to cuddle is fine.
7. Favourite Christmas Song? Silent Night
8. What do you prefer to drink in the…

Thank you so very much

for all your kind thoughts and prayers, they have certainly helped and worked wonders. The wrist and hand is much better. I have sprayed it with a magical Arnica spray, which I buy in from France for my patients, for me to use on them and they to use on themselves, it works wonders on pain. Bit pricey at £18.50 $37 but well worth it for pain relief. I am sorry about the xxx0 kisses and hug of yesterday, but I didn’t want you not to get a view and a comment.(such as it was) I can type again with care, but if it gets tired I will have to stop. I actually think I may have broken a small bone in my hand as well as the sprained wrist, it is hurting right up to my shoulder and I am very tired, sure sign of breakage., but it will be fine. Physician heal thyself really comes into its own…

I feel so bad about this

I hardly commented at all yesterday due to unfortunate circumstances, like work. haha. and today I am not going to be able to do many either, I have sprained my hand and wrist and to type is sheer hell. I am doing all the necessary things for it and by tomorrow hopefully, it will be a lot better. I miss you all, and I am looking so at least you have the views and some favouritings. Love you all. hugs Hilary. God Bless. xxx

Hi all

Someone has just pointed out to me that it was very clever to write the tourist information to get people to look at my site. I assure you I had not even thought of that. I know how many of you like history so I thought this would be a good way to give you some, I didn’t even write them myself but researched them for you.

I have cleaned my computer thinking it was my fault, but it is definitely RB, so I will return at a later time and they might have got their act together. I just didn’t want you to think I was neglecting you all. Just hope this comes. haha. Love you all. hugs Hilary.xxx

It was a seriously working day. and I am absolutely shot"!!!!!! so If I miss you, please forgive me. I will catch up as best as I can. Love you all, hugs Hilary xxxx

Ha ha ha

Go to my abstract of Valerian and take a look at the comment I received from someone called Critic. He/she says I am the worst photographer they have ever seen, and it was painful viewing. Who is this creep? anyone know, doesn’t even know the difference between an abstract and a photograph, even though it was quite plainly labelled.
Thank goodness you don’t all feel the same. haha. love an hugs Hilary xxxx

Does this make sense to you.?

This had no postproduction done to it, it is straight from the camera. This is absolutely beyond me as to what they want, because looking at the site it is difficult to understand just exactly what they do want. But, no problem, I have left the site.

Group submission not accepted

“Headlam Hall” was not accepted into the Architectural Photography group 4 minutes ago. The reason was: “We think elements of it could be improved. These may be issues with composition or framing, excessive noise or soft focus, or excessive post-production. However, we encourage you to contribute other work to the group.”

Whey hey

Little tigger has been featured in Bits and Pieces, Thank you Bits and Pieces, he will be thrilled to bits. hugs

comment button

Is anyone else as sick of the comment button as I am today, I know it is affecting other people as well, because I am getting several bubbles from the same people, all the same, and two or more comments, the same, Three times I tried to send Bamagirls comment., and one comment I gave up on altogether, so if it was you I am so very sorry. It had been a right pain all day., or at least every time I have tried to use it .
Love and hugs to all. Hilary xxx

Just a little follow on

from The English Language.

this is a true story. A Russian was visiting England and stayed with a Psychologist friend of mine. One night my friend took him to the Pub. The Russian said ‘What about your wife?’ to which my friend replied ‘Out of sight, out of mind’
The Russian gentleman returned to his own country and told his colleagues that the man he had stayed with in England had a ’ Blind, Lunatic wife’

Who says the English language is easy?

My deepest apologies

to you all, I am afraid I have had to take today off from RB and have virtually done no commenting. I am afraid my office had to take priority today. haha. I had to make medicine, and unguents and sort the whole place out, I have terribly neglected it of late. So terribly sorry my loves but it had to be the priority today. I have managed to dash to the computer between jobs, but so many of you have been totally neglected., and I have no chance of catching up. My deepest apologies to you all., but you will be pleased to know that both patients and I can now get in comfortably haha.
Love you all. hugs Hilary xxx

special hugs for the linkmaker hugs xxx

I was browsing in the home art page and went to

featured. I saw there a gorgeous watercolour of a Panda, I decided to comment, it was really good, Now with featured work you have to scroll for ever, that is why they are featured. I got hold of the tag at the side and started to scroll. Imagine my surprise. There was one other comment besides mine.
Now, I could be wrong, but I thought that was how they were featured, by having a lot of comments. This one certainly deserved more comments, it was delightful and beautifully rendered, but the question still remains. How did it get featured?
Anyone know the answer to that one.
Also when people from the outside visit bubble, I sincerely hope that they are not the only ones they see, because we are far too normal to be even considered. Some of the work on there was strange to say the least. I a…

special hugs for the link maker xxxx

Hi everyone

If I have missed any of you, I am most sorry, when I press the comment button, it does not always work, I press again, and still it does not work, it either puts them up several times or not at all. I am so sorry, It is equally frustrating for me as for you. My humblest apologies. Love and hugs to all Hilary. xxxx I have looked though xxx

If any of you

have a work you would like abstracted my e-mail address is
hilarydougill@talktalk.net
send it to me and I will do it and send it back, then remove it from my computer. Tell me if you want it made large enough to sell on RB because it would have to go into another programme to get made larger. If you can do that yourself, fair enough. They are your pictures and will remain your pictures. I only put up Mikes (Mikrin) because he asked me to.
You can always print them out yourselves and have your own abstracted work to frame. haha
Love and hugs to all

It's World Environment Day

Wouldn’t it be lovely if we all planted a tree. It doesn’t have to be a huge tree, but a tree of any kind would be better than no tree at all.
Trees help us breathe, without them we die.
Even if it is just an acorn, plant it, it will grown and make a wonderful Oak.
Perhaps you have trees have seeded in the wrong place in your garden, dig them up and plant them in a more favourable place.
We CAN make a difference.
Happy World Environment Day to you all, Love and hugs to my extended family.
. Love you all dearly. Hilary xxx

Just in case you are interested in Astrology

It would be great to rest on your laurels and enjoy another day of cosmic calm. However, today’s celestial vibes are far from serene. A Mars-Pluto 135-degree link (12:02AM PDT) often coincides with increasing emotional stress and psychic thunderstorms. Luckily, a Venus-Mars supportive 60-degree contact (1:17AM PDT) equates with feminine-masculine balance and opportunities for progress on the romantic front. Safety and security themes return to center stage as Vesta forms two alignments – a constructive, 60-degree rapport with Chiron (5:57AM PDT) and a frictional square to giant Jupiter (10:38AM PDT). It’s the latter connection that warns you to restock first-aid kits, keep extra batteries on hand, and beef up protection around your residence. Meanwhile, the Moon in Cance…

Just a query

I am a little puzzled, all my cards are for sale at £1.59. whilst other peoples are selling for £2.90 and some of them £3.90. I am a bit curious about this. I got the grand sum of 27p for the card that Saleire kindly bought, and I don’t think I get that until the sum total of my sales comes to £10. that could be when hell freezes over at that rate.
Just a bit puzzled, has anyone else ever wondered?
Can anyone explain to me why all the cards are not the same price?
Love and hugs Hilary xxx

Thank you, thank you, thank you

Saleire
I have made my first sale, I cannot believe it. The abstract of Clematis.
It says sale on the card but RB hasn’t notified me, thanks for that too Sal. Love you lots. huge hugs. xxxx

I feel I should explain

I have an absolutely gorgeous chinese silk book, which I jot things down in, sometimes things of no consequence at all, and at other times, story lines, things I hear when I am out and about and keep them so I don’t forget. Today I went into the book for no other reason that it was a good idea at the time and found the start of Poppa can you see me? this was intended to be a play, a humorous play at that, but there was only two pages of it, so I finished it today for my lovely friends on RB as a short story, but had to put it in two parts in case I didn’t get it finished., I am explaining this because the first part I finished so it would stand alone., and then added the second part. thank you for your kind indulgence in reading this and that. love and hugs Hilary xxx

I have posted

another story. I am sorry I had to put it in two parts, but I hadn’t written the second part yet haha. Now it finished you can have it. Hope it amuses you. love and hugs Hilary

Thought you might like a laugh

JESUS IS WATCHING A burglar broke into a house one night. He shone his
flashlight around, looking for valuables; and when he
picked up a CD player to place in his sack, a strange,
disembodied voice echoed from the dark saying, ‘Jesus
is watching you.’
He nearly jumped out of his skin, clicked his
flashlight off, and froze.
When he heard nothing more after a bit, he shook his
head and continued. Just as he pulled the stereo out
so he could disconnect the wires, clear as a bell he
heard, ‘Jesus is watching you.’
Freaked out, he shone his light around frantically,
looking for the source of the voice.
Finally, in the corner of the room, his flashlight
beam came to rest on a parrot.

Did you say that?’ he hissed at the parrot.
‘Yep,’ the parrot confessed, and then squ…

Update on 'the scam'

I had a really nice e-mail from the girl Nancy this morning, she is 22 years old and in a refugee camp in Senegal, after the rebels had killed her Doctor father and mother, she is now alone, and I think in need of friends. I found nothing scammy about her e-mail, and I will reply when I have a little more time. I am quite prepared to give her the benefit of the doubt until proved otherwise. Perhaps others who she has contacted might like to befriend her as well.
Love and hugs Hilary xxx

I am totally sick of RB today

I wrote a long bubble to a friend and when I went to send it , page has timed out. Ridiculous.!!! Didn’t take 5 minutes. and commenting, sometimes it will send them, others it won’t. I am so terribly sorry if you have been missed today getting a comment, blame RB. I am going off now and I MAY return when RB gets its act together.
Love and hugs to you all.
Frazzled Hilary xxxxx

Whooppee!!

I am doing really well with my Castles, Witton Castle featured and Raby Castle the avatar for Castle Magic.
Last week Bits and pieces featured the Blue Vase and then Writers group featured it.
Thank you whoever put them there, and to all of you for commenting on them.
Love you all. Hilary xxx

You are not going to believe this

I can hardly write this for laughing. Someone put up Stamen of a Lily and I dutifully went and commented on it, it was very good I have to admit. Then!!!! saw I had commented on my own stamen of a Lily. hahahahahaha. They had been commenting on the damned thing, not putting it up!!! haha
Mad or what? I have deleted my comment, seemed only fair hahaha

The scam

Nancy 20 does not appear to be a scam, I have had an e-mail with a photo of her and something else which wouldn’t open. I think she is perhaps on RB and wanting some attention. I could be wrong. I really do hope it isn’t a scam, she looks very nice.
Love and hugs Hilary xxx

I'm back

I had a simply wonderful day yesterday at the Lake District, the weather was kind (if it doesn’t rain on you in the Lakes you are blessed) it was bright overcast, and warm, the sun did manage to peek out a few times, but it didn’t matter because the company was magnificent and I had a great time. I even climbed a hill, couldn’t resist., and I took pictures to prove it haha. Jason Connelly eat your heart out haha.
There was only four of us, which was great, because no one got left out at any time, You will probably get four lots of pictures all looking the same, but that does not matter, because no photographer ever sees the same thing as another. So look forward to some gorgeous piccies.
There was Michael Oubridge, Barry Norton and Sue Graves (Mouse Suzy) who only join…

Please accept my apologies

If I have missed you, if you really want a comment send me a bubble and I will oblige, I find even though I am really good at doing two things at once, I cannot sit on here and comment and see patients at the same time blast it!!! haha. I really do not think they would understand. I have jumped on here at every opportunity, but I know for certain I must have missed some of you, sincere apologies.
and tomorrow will be zilch,I am taking a day off, it is our day out at the Lakes, so please forgive me for not commenting again, I will try very hard to catch up.
Love and hugs to you all until my return to you. Hilary xxx

It's my day for good news

On one of my photos Nephret and Amber. you saw Amber. Well this morning we got word that the poem she wrote has been selected to be published in an anthology of children’s poems, this was an International contest.. She is 10 years old. what an achievement, we are all thrilled to bits. She doesn’t know yet, she is at school. they say they come in threes, well they do!!!

I cannot believe it again

The Blue Vase has been featured in the Writer’s Market. What is happening? I am absolutely amazed. , and delighted of course. Whoever featured it, thank you very much.
Love and hugs Hilary

OK I have added all your traits

to your signs. If you have any questions, please bubble me. I think I have covered all the bases, but you never know, there is always something missing. Also, please remember you have an Ascendant, your persona, which was decided at the time of your birth, and you can be very like it, so look through all of the explanations and you might find yourself in there; Also. and you have 10 Planets roaming around your chart, they make a big difference to who you are., as well as nodes and asteroids and other things like Midheavens haha. Now I have you foxed.
Love you all for the lovely comments you have left, I am so pleased you enjoyed the series, I enjoyed sharing them with you
. hugs Hilary xxx

I feel I should explain

A lot of you have asked why the zodiac series is not for sale, it actually is in cards, best of, but I stuck too closely to the original representation by the artist, and I am afraid I could be breaking copyright laws if I put them up for sale on RB. I know they look different because they are abstracted, but the original concept is still there, If I copied one of the Old Masters, and I did it too well, I couldn’t in all honesty put it up for sale on RB, now could I?
To compensate, for any disappointment, If you like an image or imagery that is your birth sign, then take it and make your own card. Because Honestly, I would not feel right selling them on RB. I only did them as a tribute and remembrance of a great artist.
I am so pleased you are enjoying them, and I will continue until …

The Zodiac series

a few years ago there was a beautiful lady who painted Indian Shamans and the like they called her Susan Seddon Boulet, and I admired her work greatly, she was a very spiritual lady and a wonderful artist. I have copied her work greatly and tried to reproduce it in these signs, as a tribute and memorial to her. So you see I cannot take all the credit for these wonderful designs and colours, they are mostly hers, and just a bit of mine,;.but I would hate her to be forgotten., and I also wanted you beautiful people on RB to experience her too.

Love and hugs Hilary

I think I may have sickened you all

with my abstracts. I will have to stop anyway, or RB will throw me off the site for posting so much, and poor Happy Haven will be deluged. Thank you all so very much for your very kind comments on them and all my other work, it is so much appreciated, but you know if I send thank yous to all of you I will not have time to comment, and I would rather comment. So love to you all. hugs

I have just posted

a story called Cornish Adventure. Sorry it is a bit long, but not as long as the original; haha. I did a Diploma Course in Creative Writing at one of our local Universities and you had to be able to write anything and everything to pass the course. This was one of my children’s stories., which had to be educational, entertaining and thought provoking. I hope I managed all three. You can judge. It was also entered (in its entirety) into a competition, I had a lovely letter from one of the judges saying that they had voted for it to win, and if she had had her own way it would, it didn’t, it came second. I was quite happy with that, at least I knew it was readable and I did get the Diploma haha, which was after all the object of the exercise.
I know it is a bit long, but do feel…

I would like you to go to

Now it has been decided Friday 16th May and the place? Would you mind very much putting in some input. Grasmere, Derwent or Castle Rigg.? Please state a preference. We do not have to stay all the time at one place, we can move, but we need to MEET UP. somewhere. Also because my friend and I are vegetarians, I will be bringing a picnic, because I cannot always find somewhere where I can get something to eat, and eating is very important to me haha. If you like the idea, being something and we will all share or you can probably find somewhere they serve food you can eat. I have learned from hard experience.

HATE

I have never in my life hated anything, animal, vegetable or mineral, In fact I did not know what the emotion of HATE felt like, after going into my Lounge this morning I KNOW WHAT IT FEELS LIKE> Every plant thrown on the floor, soil scattered all over the white wool hairy carpet, and the Goatskin rug pooped on. No I had not had burglars, just two Bloody awful Ginger kittens.WHAT A MESS!!! Have you seen what damp soil can to to a white wool carpet, or poop to a Goatskin rug? Please don’t ask to see photos, I was much too upset to care about getting my camera. I was getting ready to go out for the day. I must admit I have closed the door on it and I will sort it later, much later. I HATE THOSE KITTENS!!!!!! From now on they are banished to the kitchen, and the kitchen only. The d…

North Englanders update

It would appear that Friday 16th May would suit most of you, please let me know if it doesn’t. Also, please let me know which Lake or Lakes is your favourite and we will pool ideas. this is not an easy task.

And of course it goes without saying, that if your partner would like to come also, they are more than welcome.
Also, perhaps some of you from Lancashire might like to come in one car, or share with someone. Can you make that arrangement yourselves, or if not possible, I will do it for you.

hugs Hilary xxx

Now you lovely North Englanders

What about the Laked District and what about either Wednesday 14th May or Friday 16th May? Are either of those days any use to anyone? Is the venue OK? It is the nearest for the Lancashire people because of the M4 and tomg if he wants to come down the A74 and all other places are accessable. Now I have the lovely David Parkin in Newcastle who would love to come with us but has no transport. Any volunteers to pick him up, he is willing to share the cost of the petrol. Please let me know.
I am posting this now so that you can possible arrange a lieu day if you work. Please let me know your thoughts.
The reason I haven’t made it a weekend, is, firstly it will be packed, and secondly we would never find anywhere to park.
Let me have your thoughts sweethearts.
Love and hugs Hilary

PS Thi…

O K kids

You now have the last part of Emilia Soames Psychic Detective in the form of Epilogue 17 on.
I really do hope you have enjoyed it, if you enjoyed it half as much as I did writing it, I will be satisfied. Thank you to all who read it, whether you commented or not.
Love and hugs to all. xxx Hilary

I really must

stop answering the phone and commenting at the same time. Yesterday, I was looking at a particularly lovely posting when the phone rang, it is on microphone and I answered it and went on bubbling. the caller said ‘and how are you?’ and I answered ’ Absolutely glorious’ I already have a reputation for being Nuts, now it is confirmed.
Love and hugs to all.Hilary xxxx

Well, you avid readers

You asked for it and here it is the Epilogue for Emilia. I have had to split it up due to lack of space. I hope you enjoy it. Please do not blame me if it makes you cry. You wanted it, and you have got it. Love and hugs to all my and Emilia’s faithful followers. xxx Hilary

I really must apoligize

I have commented on about 6 people in total today and to all the others my sincerest apologies, I have worked all day, and thought I would catch up, I am 10 pages behind and out on my feet, so apologies all round, but I am going to bed.
Love you all lots and I am sure I would have loved your work, hugs Hilary xxx

It has done it again

Twice before I have thanked you all for commenting on the inside of the chapel, and twice it has just lost it, I had to post the pic again because when it came through it was not as sharp as the original had been.
I also wanted to thank all the lovely people who comment on my work, and all those who just look, you are all appreciated.
Love and hugs Hilary xxx fingers crossed this one comes through

Try again. thanks to all those kind people

who commented on the inside of the the old chapel. I have posted it again, for some reason it did not come out at all like the original, which was sharp, the one that came through wasn’t. So if you favourited it, perhaps you would like to change it.
I started off with try again, I have done all this once and nothing happened and I lost it.
Thank you also all the lovely people who comment on my work, it is much appreciated and those who just look, that is appreciated also.
Love and hugs to you all. xxx Hilary

Thank you to all the kind people

who commented on inside the old chapel, when I got to look at it, it had not come through very well, I have put it on again, so if any of you favourited it, perhaps you would like to replace your favouriting with the new sharper one. I don’t know what was the matter the first time, but it was not sharp at all and the original was. Sorry about that.
Thank you also for all the lovely comments you all leave on my work, it is much appreciated.
Love and hugs Hilary

OK my dear friends

So we come to the end of Emilia in Tibet. The whole manuscript is enormous. I could synops a bit more if you would wish. The chapters are long and I would have to perhaps chop them up, but still make them make sense, if you know what I mean.
Let me know.
Love and hugs, Love you all, and thank you so very much for all your kind comments.
Love and hugs and xxxx Hilary

to the avid readers

I have absolutely no objection to you bookmarking the page and printing it out and reading it all together, if that’s easier for you, it might make more sense that way.
Happy reading. love and hugs Hilary

OK

Today is the final part of the Unlikely Ghost. I do hope you enjoyed it. It made a great play, but I had to hack it about a lot to make it manageable to put onto here. I thoroughly enjoyed writing it., and originally it was all in dialect,, Making allowances for our foreign friends and for English people in other parts of the country,, I watered down the dialect, because only someone from the North East of England would have understood it. haha.
I will see what else I can come up with.
thank you all so very much for your kind comments. Love you all Hugs Hilary xxx

an add for painting on silk

I am so sorry I forgot to mention. You need an embroidery hoop or tapestry frame, It cannot be placed on anything when painting, it has to be open at the back!!!
Love and hugs. Have fun xxx

Hi. Painting on silk.

Some of you seemed surprised at me painting on silk. There are special paints you buy to paint on silk and because silk is so porous, you have to outline your design with Gutta, this come in gold and white (also black if you so wished)(in a tube with along nozzle for easy manipulation) you outline all the design and then paint within the guidelines once the Gutta is dry. If you want a sensational effect, say you have put gutta in a design of flowers, you leave an opening, instead of closing the gutta right up, and when you paint ,the paint will ‘bleed’ into the colour next to it, This looks incredible. I found this out by accident!!!! I was making some silk cushion covers and had put on the design, but had inadvertantly left a couple of gaps, and hey presto, it was fantastic, …

I would very much appreciate

if you would give some comments to a wonderful cartoonist called Kangarookid. he does wonderful animations and is at present compiling a comic book. He needs all the encouragement he can get. So go to it my lovelies, I am relying on you. He is a great kid. love and hugs Hilary

and love to the link maker. thank you.

I am terribly sorry about this

but I am knocking myself out commenting on people who do not even have me on their watchlist. I am going to have to reduce my watchlist because I cannot cope. I have always understood the watchlist to be a two way street, I am on yours, and you are on mine, this does not appear to be the case and the ones I am commenting on the most are the ones who do not comment at all on mine.
So if you find you have been removed, all you have to do to get back on there is to add me to your watchlist.
And to all my lovely and loyal friends, thank you so very much for being you and being there!! Love you all Hilary

for those of you who want to be amazed

“David Sandercoe”: This young man does the most wondrous sand sculpting, it is amazing, he also does great photography. Be prepared to be amazed. He has a good following, but for pure enjoyment, do go and leave a comment, add him to your watchlist so you don’t miss any of his future work. Honestly it is worth the effort. Love you all. Hilary
Thank you to the link maker. xx

It's that time again

The time for me to say Thank you to all the people who have commented on my work and all who have viewed it. I do appreciate it very much, your kind comments mean a lot to me. I am sorry I do not have time to thank you all personally, but I am sure you would rather I commented on your work than thank you for your comments., and it impossible for me to do both.
So thank you all once again. Love you guys so much. love and hugs Hilary

If ever any of you want me to identify a flower

Please, show the leaf also, I was taught to identify by the leaf, the flower really played very little part in the property of the plant, it is only to attract the bees and make the seed haha. I will happily do it, but I need to see the leaf as well as the flower. Love to all Hilary

I see everything in 3D, all flat images I see as 3D, I know it sounds ridiculous, but even though I have perfect eyesight, I have a defect somewhere in the back of the eye which makes flat things 3D. It’s a bonus really because everything looks great. I thought everyone saw like that until they brought out those 3D books and people were screwing their faces up to see the image and I could see it right away haha.
Love and hugs Hilary

I am so very sorry

If I have missed some of you this morning, and I know I have, it is a work day and I got up early purposefully to try and catch up before I started work. OMG I am completely overfaced. Apparently there must be a glitch somewhere, because loads of pictures are coming up that have been up before and my comments are already on them, I recognized them anyway. So Please Please forgive me. I can not possibly cope with this amount, there are 20 pages of them and more coming in all the time. I love you all. Hugs and blessings Hilary

Now I am going to make you laugh. This is a JOKE

These are the sayings of the Jewish Buddhist (of course there is no such thing)

If there is no self -- whose arthritis is this?

Wherever you go, there you are
Your luggage is another story

Accept misfortune as a blessing,
Do not wish for perfect health
or, a life without problems
What would you talk about

The Tao does not speak
The Tao does not blame
The Tao does not take sides
The Tao has no expectations
The Tao demands nothing of others
The Tao is not Jewish

Hi I have another

the Feather painting, there are some on the net. Go to either Feather site or Feather Art, they will probably both bring you to the same place, then click on one and look, there is some wonderful work on there by a B Curtis, it is stupendous, she also paints on rocks, that should give you all some inspiration for other things creative. Love you all Hilary

Found one today

who had completely slipped through my net, she has been on a while but her work is fantastic and well worth a look and a comment. Her name is: jacqi. Give yourself a treat and go and have a look. love to all Hilary

Love you all Hilary

Another must see

I am afraid I cannot put the little mark over the e in Julie indicating it is said a. but if you go to the waterfall group and find her picture, which is very good, by the way, click on her name and up she comes.
Sorry about the confusion. It is me. (I am a blonde after all is said and done haha)

If I have

offended anyone by not replying to their comments, I am sorry. I cannot be replying to comments and commenting at the same time. I comment on everything that comes through my watchlist, I sat until 9-30pm last night catching up and I have done 10 pages this morning. I can do no more I am sorry,
I am thanking you all who have commented and viewed my work now, in this Journal.
Thank you all so very much for your kind comments and for viewing my work, I deeply appreciate it., and please forgive me for not commenting on your comments.
I love you all
Love and hugs Hilary

One more newby

Teresa Ogle. I have been very careful with this one, Sorry about last time. She has some lovely work, but just starting out on RB. Lets give her a real RB welcome. thanks Kids. Hugs Hilary

What is the point

I have just had a telephone call from the NSPCC who I support monthly with a donation. The young lady said she just wanted to tell me what they were doing. I am afraid I chopped her off with ‘And I am spending money on your wages so you can make superfluous phone calls’ she apologized and rang off.
Where on earth are they coming from? You donate to a charity and they waste it!!!!
I had a begging letter the other day and wanting to enter me in a prize draw for £7,000 – $14,000, I wrote to them telling them if they could afford to give that amount of money away, they did not need my donation.
It really is getting to be ridiculous. I am as charitable as the next, but I just seem to be supporting people in work, and blow the charity.
I am afraid I am going to have to write to …

Hi folks

It has come to my attention that one of our group is being a bit neglected. : tuffcookie, does some great abstract designs and good photography, yet she seems to have slipped through the net somehow, come on RBs give her a break. Love and hugs Hilary

It is now

5am in England and I have been awake since 3am. the wind is howling like a Banshee and there is no way you can sleep through it, It is using the house as a plaything, rushing and whirling and charging it, When I do go back to sleep, no doubt I will sleep in and then I will have to rush around like a mad thing because my first appointment is 10.30 am perhaps it would be better to just stay up and go to bed early tonight.
These are the meanderings of someone with sleep deprivation. Sorry about that.
Have a good day everyone
Love and hugs Hilary

someone suggested

I crop the Wear Valley, so I have, I have changed the posting, perhaps you would be good enough to let me know what you think.
Thanks
love and hugs Hilary

I cannot believe it

I have over 20,000 views. Incredible, I cannot thank all the people who viewed my work enough. And, all the people who commented a Great Big Thank You. Love and hugs Hilary

Does anyone know

Where Loco Cow has gone, He has disappeared from my watchlist and I have fallen off his. Has he left us?, is he using a new name? I will miss his wit and humour, Bill was a good guy!!

seeing Caole Haberle's snake this morning

reminded me of something which I saw in Bangladesh, We were riding along in a Rickshaw ( a pram with a bicycle on the front) enjoying the beautiful scenery of Barisal when I spotted something in the water at the side of the road.
‘What is that Donkey doing in there? I enquired.
’That is no Donkey, that is a snake’, replied Franz
On looking closer, it was, the most enormous Anaconda I had ever seen. It had a head the size of a full grown Donkey, without the ears, and a huge fat tapering body gliding down the river behind it.
I was really glad that we had no boat trip organized for that day. Hopefully by the time we had, it would have reached its destination and gone!!
I am so grateful that the only snakes I see are in the Forest in the summer, they are Adders and are poisono…

I am afraid I missed

some of you this morning, it was not intentional, but when I opened bubble I had 10 pages to comment on, almost a impossibility in the time I had, so if I missed you I am sorry,
Love and hugs to all Hilary

A Big Public Thank you

to my friend Saleire, who has so kindly put frames on my work for me, and to Alan Findlater, they both tried so very hard to get it across to me, and at last I got it, and nothing happened. haha. So A very great big Thank You to both these wonderful Red Bubblers who took so much time and effort to help me. You are Gems among gems.
and also a Big Thank you to Magee and Irene Burdell who also helped me with other things. My most grateful thanks to you all. love and hugs to all.

You have all been so incredibly kind

about these fractals I have been playing with. They are so incredibly simple to do a four year old could do them, even if it couldn’t read. I feel it only fair to share the knowledge with you all and you can all play nice. You download a free download of Tierazon. This is a plug in, (don’t even ask where it plugs, I have no idea, as far as I am concerned it is free standing on its own) You open it up and you get an image, you then open up the bars at the top and select something, anything, your shape will change, you add colours, spikes, bubbles, anything that is in the toolbar. If you get one that REALLY TAKES YOUR FANCY, FOR GOODNESS SAKE SAVE IT AND THEN GO BACK TO PLAYING WITH YOUR IMAGE, YOU GET ANOTHER YOU LIKE, SAVE IT, AND SO FORTH AND SO FORTH.(Sorry clashed the caps …

Thanks all

for your kind comments about Giffy. I put that one for a purpose, not to gather praise for myself, but to hopefully touch your hearts into doing something similar. Many of you will be going on holiday this year to an underprivileged country. Help someone whilst your are there, We went to Egypt and took a great big box full of pencils and a huge pack of tiny scribbling pads, the children have nothing, and are so delighted with this kind of thing. In Africa by friend gave all her tee shirts to the people who worked in the hotel for their wives and children. (Came home in a dirty one). You can go to one of the schools and take some paper and pencils, pens are a real luxury. I have worked in Third World Countries and the smallest thing means such a lot to them, especially the children. We ma…

Thank you all

For you lovely comments on my work. Especially the fractals. I have to tell you all here and now, these are more a matter of luck than good judgement and skill. I press a few buttons,here and there, add some numbers and hey presto There is no skill involved at all!!!! But thank you all for your comments, they are much appreciated. I love you all.
hugs and blessings Hilary

Well I am

Having a good week. I had a letter yesterday asking me send my Curriculum Vitae to the VSO (Voluntary Services Overseas) and today I had a letter inviting me to Los Vegas to the ISP (International Society of Photographers) Annual Shindig., where I would take part in two competitions and could win £10,000. ($20,000) Very nice, just send the money.
And as for the VSO. I have done my stint. It amazes me how some people just think you can drop everything, up sticks and go, at a moments bidding. I have responsibilities to my patients, my family,my animals. ME. Red Bubble. Everyone on the flaming planet!!!!
There Got that off my chest, feel so much better. HaHa.
Thanks for listening. Love and blessings Hilary

I have posted

some Religious artefacts just for Angelartist. I apologize for their poor quality, but they were hanging on the walls of my house and difficult to photograph, I have rather a large collection, but I had promised Angela some, so please bear with me.

Just for laughs

Today my Chinese Horoscope said. ’Dress up in something erotic, go out for an sensuously romantic evening, . Do not make any risky investments today. Believe me THAT would be a risky investment.!!

Please may I

make a suggestion; If anyone on RB has a gripe, grumble or bind with another member of RB, instead of throwing a wobbler or throwing teddy out of the cot, they Bubblemail them and tell them. Instead of commenting so that all of us are privvy to it. This is attention seeking and we are expected to soothe their ruffled feathers, far better to have it out mano to man so to speak.
This is a wonderful site with many wonderfully talented people who are serious about their work not a kindergarten.
If you have a gripe with me Bubblemail me and tell me.

Thank you all so very much

for viewing my work and for the wonderful comments you have left. I have just reached the 10,000 hits mark and I cannot believe it, I have been on RB for such a short time. I cannot thank you all enough for making me feel so welcome in this lovely community. God Bless you all. Hilary

Darlings.

I am having such a hard time keeping up with all the comments will you please not reply to them, unless you send me a bubble, I really do not have the time to keep going and looking at them, and I would much rather spend the time I do have making comments on your wonderful work. I have been away today (working) and I am afraid I may have missed a few of you. apologies if this is so. Love and blessings to you all Hilary

If I did I'm sorry

When I opened up Red Bubble this morning I had 8 pages of pics to look through and comment on. I am having problems with my keyboard (I type it doesn’t) So if I have missed any of you out believe me it is inadvertively and I apologize. I have done my best.

the cyclamen picture (original)

I just thought I would like to tell you I took that shot in darkness with just the backlight set on my new camera. I am still experimenting with it. It is a Samsung i7. It will take me about another 6 months to work my way around it. I have to admit it was the nicest present Santa brought me.

again thanks.

I hope you all realize how much I appreciate your comments on my work. I really do not have time to thank you all individually but I do give one and all a BIG THANK YOU.
Also thank you to the people who do not comment but DO look. I now have over 8000 hits. Thank you to a wonderful community of friends. Love and blessings Hilary

Thank you all

So very much for all your kind comments. I see we have a new system, but I cannot possibly reply to everyone individually and comment on all the hits that are coming into my watchlist. as well, so please accept this intimation that I am very appreciative of you all and your comments. Love and blessings Hilary

my friend Jervaulx has a fantastic image of the alter at Liverpool Cathesdral. I inadvertantly place this in my writing instead of my journal. I must be tired.

Thank you

To all the wonderfully kind people who have commented on my work and to all the people who had a look. I now have over 7000 hits. I cannot believe it!!! I say a great big THANK YOU. This is a lovely community and I feel I have made so many friends,
I love you all. blessings Hilary xxx

hits

I have over 6,000 hits and hadn’t even noticed. It is no time since I was cock-o-hoop because I had 1,000. Thank you all for looking Love and Blessings to you all and to yours. Hilary

Further to my last comments

I think I may have been misunderstood when I wrote about the people who didn’t comment. Those of you who commented on it are the people who comment anyway. It was the hundreds who don’t
I appreciate perhaps more than most the problem of ‘time’.
‘time’ is the enemy of us all, and procrastination is the thief of ‘time’, BUT if you have time to open a picture to look at it you have ‘time’ to comment, it only takes seconds.
We have some wonderful young people on this site with fantastic talent and potential and they need feedback. Not to comment on their work is a kind of rejection, and they do not need that. They need all the encouragement they can get or they might just not bother., and that would be a tragedy.
Thank you to all th…

I am amazed at the number of people who view but do not comment

Some of my work has had 68 and 70 people view it but only a dozen have commented. Everything that comes into my sphere I comment on and many that I search out I comment on. This is just a bit puzzling. Do they not comment because they think they are not worthy of comment? or can they not type? or are they only interested in their own work? I would love to know the answer

less then one week ago

I wrote thanking the 2000 people who had viewed my work, I couldn’t believe it. I am even less able to believe that a further 1000 have looked at them since then. Thank you all so very much. I am very honoured to have such lovely companions on this site. Bless you all.

You will note

that a lot of my work states ‘not for sale’. This is not because I don’t want you to have it, but you are all so talented I cannot possibly see why you would want to spend money on mine.

Happy New Year Everyone

and thank you to all the 2006 people who viewed my work. I can hardly believe that so many people have looked at it in such a short time. I am honoured and very grateful to you all. It is a privilege to be in a community of so many wonderfully creative people. Bless you all Hilary
