hello everybody ….…

I am going for a blog. but first .. it is a large world out there. .
questions to self .
how do you present yourself ?.how do people find you ? why would they ever bother ?. what do you offer?.

I found this great resource of links .. when I typed in the search engine for # artist selling art on squido . sell art online

Blogging for artist’s

and I decided I would also give you a link to a great art blog I discovered.

The painting adventures of Ed Terpening

it has the following going for it .

simple to navigate

clear buttons to be able to see.
contact info
share buttons…… oh oh so important .

clear simple titles to the artwork
. I love how this artist has a way to see the recent comments in one link , instead of all over the place .

and all recent and old postings

my trip to Seattle with Elizabeth Bravo : the Bubblegum Wall and all that

I took a memorable trip recently . with a lovely redbubble friend,…… how cool is that!…

I need to share with you

I took a walk in this beautiful city early in the morning. I remember so well I had to find a place to park, and it took forever to find one… and by the time I got to find parking, I needed to go to the bathroom oh so bad. funny how these things stay with us. so on my way to find a place where a lady could “go”. I found myself looking around allot and falling in love with this great town .

I found one of the coolest diner cafe where I had a coffee right in front of the pikes market. and read the newspaper.

here is my left overs.

and then . I met …. Elizabeth. that afternoon….and. we went for a walk

and checked out the bubble gum wall… :)

we also checked out the wonderf

Sagittarius for those born between November 23 and December 21…

Keywords: Optimism, Warmth, Honesty, Philosophical,

Element: Fire

Image 1: Optimism: your outlook on life is contagious, you look upward, and forward in your every day

Ten Ways and more To help Haiti: Red Bubble shows its real heart always

I chose a homepage layout the day after the earthquake hit .. for I could not believe what was happening.. the human life lost , the homeless, the critically injured with no way to find a hospital or a bed or medicine . It is impossible to place in words how scared and painful this must be.
I am again so grateful for how the staff of Red bubble has seflessly given space on the home page to the images of Haiti. to give a sense of humanity and the enormous amount of help the people of Haiti need . One thing I do know .. it is close to my heart because I live in an area where thousands of Haitians live . My island of Puerto Rico has always considered Haiti to be special because of its proximity to us. And our Military Post" here in Florida are the branchout area from which most of the ai
