To iPhone or not to iPhone, do I jump into the fray?

The following week, when I heard a phone carrier sales guy say that they would be receiving a small shipment of iPhone 6eswas come in phones coming in on that very week. If you were in that line, you might be able to get one of those phones. Well I was going to get one of those phones! I immediately began to form a plan to ensure I got one. And by golly I was going be first in that line, make no mistake.

I flew out of bed when that alarm went off. Threw on some clothes, no coffee , no makeup or hair fixing, I don’t even know if I ran a comb through it , nothing. I just got in that csr and flew.The mob frenzy mentality had set in, and my “dignity”flew right out of the door. I was going to first in that line. I would need to be there at 4:30 AM, meaning getting up at about 3:45 A

Change is Good, Growth and New Beginnings.

I’m already thinking of fall, and the changes which it brings. That theme is behind my latest landscape art quilt, “Change, New Beginnings”. Wow, “time really does fly”, as the old adage goes! It becomes more evident and rings truer with each passing year. Change is inevitable, but with each change of season, we’re given a fresh start, of sorts. “I didn’t get to that last fall, but this year I’m going to….”. It’s up to us, the slate is clean, we can do the things which nagged away at us this past year. The changing of the seasons offers an opportunity for renewal. It’s a good time for change. Use it wisely because time really does fly!

Cakes update for themed parties, more entertaining, part two

I’m a self taught amatuer and it takes me literally a whole day to do one, not including the baking. At the end of the day’s work. my entire self, kitchen, floor and sink are covered with colored icing & powdered sugar. There’s so many discolored bowls, dishcloth’s and fingers tinted by the cake decorating colors that it looks like an unsupervised 2 year old was let loose, having the best unsupervised time of his life.

Cherry Blossoms, It’s Raining Pink!

“It’s Raining Pink”. This art quilt is from the perspective of looking up the trunk of an old twisted cherry tree. It carries the scars gained from many years. As you look up you see a cloud of pink above. Your eyes follow the slow drift of a pink petal as it finally reaches the ground below your feet, that is covered with pink. Is it raining pink?
