Back to My Roots…

I have never shared this story because my Grandma Helen swore me to secrecy. My granny (which is what we called her) passed last year, so I think I am in the clear now of granny’s wrath (I will let you know if she haunts me). My granny bought my booze when I was in … Continue reading

Go Big or Go Home…

Go Big or Go Home…

I remember many, many years ago an artist telling me I painted too big and no one would want a huge painting in their house. At the time I painted 18×20 and larger. I was crushed because I respected this artist and really wanted to be like this artist. This artist never painted anything bigger … Continue reading

I Hate Exercising, But…

Words cannot describe how much I hate exercising. I have stated many times how much I hate it, this time is no different. I want to punch Jillian Michaels in the face every time I do the 30 Day Shred. Why do I continue to do it if I hate it so much? It works, … Continue reading

It Is A Sad Day For America…

I am sitting here in shock and absolute disbelief on what is happening in DC. I will call it what it is an attempted coup d’état done by terrorist. I have stated many times these people are in a cult, this action proves to me they are in a cult. I wonder if Nazism would … Continue reading

The house was due Saturday, I of course started Monday. I learned so much, like isomalt is really hot and I shouldn’t … Continue reading

Why? Why is this so hard?

Why? Why is this so hard?

I really do try to keep non-art stuff off my blog, however 2020 has thrown that like so many things out the window. I have been working behind the front desk since September, I now remember why I left the operation side of hotels and vowed never to return. The front desk is hard, people … Continue reading

A Time to Heal…

A Time to Heal…

After a very long week, we finally know who is going to be the next President of the United States, President-Elect Joe Biden. I personally didn’t think it would happen, I had seriously doubts and much anxiety over the counting. It didn’t matter to me Joe was winning, it was the 70 million people who … Continue reading
