Yep, you guessed it!

Im behind again!
I so apologize to all of you that have commented and favorite my works over the past few days. Im so far behind again I feel shame because I appreciate and value each and every one of you!

I hope you don’t think you are being ignored and I don’t care Im just overwhelmed by my mother in law right now. She is having heart/ blood pressure problems and it has been in and out of clinics for the last week and a half. Shes in a nursing home but still needs to be driven to her appointments. She falls quite often so that another day away from home to sit with her.

Im not sure if Im writing all of this to vent or why I feel the need to say it at all. What I do know is I haven’t forgotten not a single person or comment, Im not ignoring you and I certainly do care fo…

Well

Im not really sure why I feel I need to say this, but I do!

I think because I was getting into Redbubble so much lately, great people and so much wonderful talent I sometimes think about closing my site and just coming on to look! That would be one way for me to not get so far behind.

My father in law was diagnosed with ALS early last year. I spent most of my summer months helping him and my mother in law get settled in to their new apartment at Pathstone Nursing Home. And cleaning and sorting thru 65 yrs of memories in the house they were living in. I was very honored to have been trusted with that task. Even though at times it seemed like the saddest honor too! Shortly after finishing it was put on the market to sell and did sell two weeks ago!

In the time it took to do the house my fat…

Playing on Redbubble

I was sitting here looking at some really marvelous works and thinking how once again Im behind on here. I just resign myself to the fact that no matter how great the kindness Im always going to be behind! Anyway, I clicked back into my bubble page and there it was the first one up! I sold my first Ipad case!

It just goes to show you there is always hope! Thank you so much to the buyer! And thank you so much Redbubble!

My Month Of May

Sales on Redbubble for the month of May has been extrodinary, not just for me but for so many other of my friends here! Im always so happy to hear when someone makes a sale. it gives me hope and great joy for them! Isnt that the true meaning for being here, not just to comment, groups and makes friendships but to try and sell images and work that we truely believe in! Even today I can look at images and art from people all over this great big world and be so impressed with talent far greater than mine! You all have taught me more than I could ever thank each and everyone one of you for, my gratitude runs deep!
I have to confess that I get behind and am behind on thanking you all for your kind words and for thanking you for favoriting my work! It means so much to me and always has. The onl…

Going Home!

Ill be leaving early tomarrow morning by Amtrak for my home state of Ohio. Going to spend some time with my family. Mostly my oldest daughter. I miss them all a bunch and its been more than a yr and a half since Ive seen them all. I have no return plans at this time but Im sure my Daddy wont mind if I used his computer from time to time to check into RB and see how things are going. I will miss you all, youve been such great friends and my personal life seems to be a mess right now! Thank you all so much for making me smile when I didnt think I could, your warm kind caring hearts, and for sure entertaining me with your fabulous talents and images. Cant begin to tell you how much it all means to me! Thank you again!

Ill miss my little Sota girl, my three little birds whom I adore but most …

My Little Black Sota

All winter I thought about the parks and places I frequent during the summer with my camera. Mankato is loaded with walking trails that wind through the woods, along the river, and beautiful creeks. Prairies that bloom in the Spring with pretty wildflowers and other vegatation. And birds Im sure Ive never seen before But being a female and hiking these places alone was kinda scarey for me to be out on alone.

I was thinking maybe getting a dog would be the solution. Ive been on trails where women would be walking big dogs and never seemed to have any fear about being there alone. So thats where I was going to start.

I knew before I started shopping for a dog what I was looking for. A medium sized puppy, breed didnt matter so much as size. I wanted a puppy that would grow big enough to look…
