Rainy Day Post

WELLLLLLLLL....is all I can say.

The weather we just experienced the past few days was just replaced with Wet, Chilly, and....

Wet.

Interestingly enough, our current weather forecast is serendipitous to the new challenge at the 3GirlJam Challenge! (remember, there is always a great chance of winning some really fabulous ribbon, but you have to play to win!...and I hear that there is going to be some NEW bundles available!)

So, that makes my bad hair day and wet socks worth it, don't you think?

The challenge is (and I'm paraphrasing!) to be do something rainy with ribbon!


Okay, so where's the ribbon?  I know.  Well, this is part of a series of paintings I am doing and one thing I enjoy doing when I price my paintings is to create a one of a kind tag to go along with the original artwork.

In comes the ribbon:


(and a sweet Pinque Peacock stickpin!)

So...there you go.  What you can do on a rainy day, with acrylics, a few palette knives, and memories of wading through pummeling rain on your way to a special (and fancy) event!

Mixed Up Media Chix - Summertime Blog Hop!

I have a fun project to share today!  Very excited about this one.  I've been working on it for over a week and...well...it's still not completely done, but it's getting there!

And while this is a special gift, it's also part of a really fun blog hop I'm participating in with the other Mixed Up Media Chix!   Follow along...You'll truly be inspired.
So, if you need to start at the beginning:

Cold Heartless Prank

I get a call this afternoon at work from "a friend" of my daughter's. He said that my daughter had been in a serious accident --> hit by a car. He told me that she had a compound fracture and was being taken to a hospital (he told me the name of the hospital). I asked a few more questions as my panic increased to almost hysteria. I had started to cry and was shaking pretty badly

My daughter lives across the country - literally. I was so frightened that something had happened and she was injured and well, you know....all sorts of terrible things started running through my head.

So, in a scurry, a few of my colleagues here at work searched Google and found the number for the hospital ER and the State Police for me. What a blessing they were.

The ER said that she hadn't arrived yet. They also said that they hadn't received any "codes", meaning, that at least they were not having an emergency brought in that was life threatening. The emergency room sugge…
