The deck started out small, and was meant for personal use only, but it transformed itself many times as I went along. It soon became huge and MESSY!!! And that is OK, as the process for creating it felt huge and messy. There was lots of scribbling and mistakes and I didn’t always like theContinue reading “How Inner Child Artist Oracle Came To Be: The Progression of the Process is Sticky Sometimes”

Inner Child Artist Oracle is Done, Diddly-Un!!!!
This deck is a culmination of everything I’ve ever done in my entire life, from teaching elementary school art , to messing around with graphic design and websites, marketing and advertising, to storytelling and journaling, to card creation, etc.! I have had so many random opportunities to work in so many different fields, and IContinue reading “Inner Child Artist Oracle is Done, Diddly-Un!!!!”
I get to see my Mustang yearling today for the first time since June 1st, when I took him to a locally known professional Mustang trainer. Finally. It costs a lot, but he’s worth every penny! We’ve had a rough start. I allowed other people to tell me what I was capable of doing onContinue reading “So Nervous!”
I am so very heartbroken. It’s all bad guys. When I went out to feed this morning, Calypso was unresponsive and she had white stuff leaking from her nose. I grabbed a halter and called the emergency vet. I made her walk around the yard, she didn’t want to move much, but she never laidContinue reading “Losing Her”
Let’s Play Catch Up…
2020 has been fucking eventful, to say the very least. It has been nothing short of dramatic; that much is true! We bought our first home and moved into it in mid- March, the very same day we were both laid off of work due to the Coronavirus pandemic. It has been very stressful, butContinue reading “Let’s Play Catch Up…”
Drawing is the perfect distraction!
What in the hell would I do, on those days when my head spins and spins with shit I can’t control, without art to distract me? I would definitely be on lock down somewhere, just sayin’. It’s also a good reminder. We can thank God for our creativity on the days when we can’t findContinue reading “Drawing is the perfect distraction!”
Me singing with my kid!
Some draw it out; Others sing it…
My son sings it. And he’s so good. I love it. I think it’s important. And beautiful. ❤️
A Family Reunion and Another Funeral
Life really is like the Wheel of Fortune. Things that go down always come back up again. That is a good and a bad thing. Either way… it’s a thing. The bad thing about funerals is that someone you love has died. The good thing about funerals is that it brings you together with yourContinue reading “A Family Reunion and Another Funeral”
I have rat pups!
Did I forget to show you my little puppies, born June 19, 2019, in the RV? They were born on the Cusp of Magic! We moved to Oregon, with their mama nursing them in the passenger seat, at one week of age. They are Troopers!!!! And they are in a very active puppy stage now!Continue reading “I have rat pups!”
I wrote my Dad’s obituary! 😭
Being the first born child sucks ass! Not only did I arrange for my Dad’s cremation today, I was also appointed as planner of his Celebration of Life and also as writer of his obituary. I only recorded it so that I could type it quickly without looking back-and-forth at my little piece of paper.Continue reading “I wrote my Dad’s obituary! 😭”
Drawing it out… 😭
My dad has been in ICU for a week now. He has to a have a defibrillater implanted into his heart tomorrow morning, while his blood pressure stays at a very low rate. I’m worried. I am so fucking scared of facing life on Earth without him. I can’t stand the thought of losing him,Continue reading “Drawing it out… 😭”
“Baby, you’ve been prolific!”
Although I always try to see the good in other people, sometimes it is necessary to defend yourself with truth. The proof is always in the pudding. According to one person, (whom shall remain unnamed and unseen): “Since when do you work?! You’ve been busy sitting around and doing nothing while your husband works hisContinue reading ““Baby, you’ve been prolific!””
My Life is Crashing Down With My Daddy
Death is so final. I have always had so much hope that with modern technology and medical advances, that my dad would be fine. I’ve never been the best at handling terminal illness and death. And the death of someone close to me nearly destroys me. I’m still trying to deal with the loss ofContinue reading “My Life is Crashing Down With My Daddy”
City Slickers Thinkin’ They Are Country Bumpkins, or Something Like That…
I have been packing our 2,500 square foot house for about a month now because… WE ARE GOING OFF THE GRID! For Real. Pleaser ask me every single question you can think of so I can determine how much I DO NOT KNOW ABOUT THIS SHIT! (It’s going to be hilarious! ) Stay tuned… 🤣
I Drew Me and My Pops!
I drew me with my dad! And I loved it! I need to draw more of these because these make my heart sing. I need to find one from when I was a little girl, and draw it! How fun!!!! Step 1 And here I am with my mama!
She Thinks She’s a Fucking Kite
I drew my niece tonight. She didn’t call me for Mother’s Day. She has called me every Mother’s Day since her mom died, three years ago, but she didn’t call this year. And I know why… It doesn’t make me happy. I used to think she was a heroin addict, but I know now thatContinue reading “She Thinks She’s a Fucking Kite”
All Mother’s Are Slightly Insane
It’s true. We have to be crazy to have kids. 😂 Kids are hard. Kids are hard. Shit, mom’s are hard. Dogs are so easy… (Thank God for dogs!) At the end of the day, they all are WORTH IT! ❤️ I love my mama and I love being a mom. Happiest of Mother’s DaysContinue reading “All Mother’s Are Slightly Insane”
The Lifestyle You Ordered is Out of Stock!
A collage of my family that I made for my mom… only the quote isn’t on the real one. But the quote sums everything up nicely. 😭
Once My Sister, Now My Muse
Art has gotten me through the hardest of times. When my sister died three years ago, I was at a loss. I mean a literal loss of everything, including my mind, and especially my mind. It was a “Tower moment.” The problem was that I had never even considered her death before and I justContinue reading “Once My Sister, Now My Muse”
