Mind Your Own Business!

This is a reoccurring theme in my life. Usually it is a result of my loved ones looking out for me, thinking they are helping by butting into my life somehow.... done out of love.

This time though I have been VIOLATED!! I was stalked, why, that's a true mystery!!! I was stalked and something was found out about me, something taken out of context, something this person knew nothing about the sick circumstances that resulted in this thing.... This person butted herself into my life, messed with me directly, and did damage to my life. This thing found out about me was not a big mystery. The point is though, this person STALKED me, then butted into my Life!! This is a messed up feeling to have!! She said she found out this little bit of gossip about me by "clicking around my blog"... that's a down right lie!! She had to search me to find this juicy thing about me. Why do you care about your friend from 30+ years ago, from a lifetime ago, to go and stalk his friend?? Sounds really weird to me.

So next time you get all nosey and stalk someone, you should keep to yourself. You really don't know what kind of shit you can start!!! MIND YOUR OWN F-IN BUSINESS!!

Thank you Z & K Antiques for the Nosey Game image, which I found on Pinterest!

Oh, and by the way, I'm not a mystery, really don't have secrets, not that I keep from the people I love most at least. There's no dirt that you can find that my lover wouldn't know about me, so you're wasting your time if you try to dig around.

Astrological Signs - Cancer

This is the latest in my Astrological Signs series.... Cancer the Crab. Some of the traits of a Cancer are emotional and loving, intuitive and imaginative, shrewd and cautious, protective and sympathetic. Some of the "dark side" of a Cancer is that they can be changeable and moody, overemotional and touchy, clinging and unable to let go. My own son is a Cancer, and he seems to exhibit many of these traits.

smARTS Exhibit 2012

Every 2 years Idyllwild Arts Academy hosts an exhibit in their Park's Gallery for the smARTS Project. This exhibit showcases the work of all the students, K-8, enrolled in the local public school. All of the projects were done in the smARTS program. smARTS is an art program in school where local artists teach art to the local children. It is completely funded by donations and grants and run by volunteers. I am proud to be one of the founders and a teacher for the program. It has been a wonderful experience for me. This show marks smARTS' 10 year anniversary. I'm no longer involved with the organization, since my own son has graduated off to high school, but I'm happy to still be involved in teaching art to the kids.

This year the projects I did with the students that were represented in this show were Batiks with 6th grade, Sarcophagi with 6th grade, Chinese New Year Dragons with 4th grade, Pattern Cats with 2nd grade and Pattern Turtles with Kindergarten. Here's most all of my lessons for your viewing.

The exhibit runs until March 16.

crochet flowers

I've been crocheting flowers again, trying to dream up new designs. These are 100% wool, crocheted, then felted. They have leaves attached. Also sewn on the back is a pin, making them all ready to be attached to a hat, purse, headband, or whatever is dreamed up. I sewed on the back of this batch a piece of felt to make them a little bit more sturdy, so that they don't curl up, as some that I made in the past did. They add festivity to your ensemble!
