It's a beautiful day and believe it or not it's not HOT. I love it when there is a balmy breeze.
I love to open the window and let the breath of air blow through.
I spent a large part of the day looking out of my window at the beautiful water.
The other part of the day was spent editing my work. I am so bad at editing. It takes so much out of me to get things down on paper. When I get it out, it is so refreshing but when I read back through it, it's not exactly what I had in mind. Has that ever happened to you?
Anyway, enough time has passed that I can look at it with "new eyes" and pick up on things that need to be reworked and/or added.
I add all kinds of notes to myself. I got tickled at one note I left myself, several months ago. It said, "Fix this".
Well, I must make a quick run to the store to get more ink.
Let the days breathe of air blow over you so you can....

Enjoy Life!

Lazy Days of Hot Summer

I had an awesome day today and I have nothing to show for it. I slept late because I was up late. I have no idea of what is going on in the world as I have nooooo television or radio. I do have the Internet but I have chosen to stay away from all things negative today.
I have created wonderful crafts for Children's Church, my mini albums, and last but certainly not least, The Adventures of Viv Writer.
My adventures went to a lovely place today. I must be the most romantic person I know. I love being in love, I love writing about my characters who stay in love and going magical places that I only dream of going.
Viv and Arden are in Ireland today. I have always dreamed of going there. I would love to see the green meadows, and fields in Ireland. Thanks to The Adventures of Viv, I can travel to those places and create wonderful stories.
The online game of Second Life is still perking. I love to sit and watch avatars do what they do. It's such a wonderful place to visit. I know my favorite creators are busy working on projects. Stay tuned and I'll take pictures of some of the summer creations seen in the online game of Second Life. They are just a few things that help me....

Enjoy Life!

Let us play

It is so hot that it makes me wonder what July and August will bring. Interesting to note that even with it being so hot, we have not broken any records with the heat. It just makes me think. Years and years ago people dealt with the heat and they dealt with the heat without air conditioning. Indeed it may be hot but we really still have it much better than those that came before us.
I am still creating in my digital journal. Above is a result of my playing. I hope you enjoy it. I love creating, composing, and just being free to dream. In the online game of Second Life I have that freedom to dream. I enjoy my time there with friends that love to dream and create as much as me.
If you get the opportunity to enter that world, I would only suggest that you visit creators like Julia Hathor who are fabulous and honest creators. Just a walk around the sims will speak volumes about creative talent.
Go and you will....

Enjoy Life!

Digital Journaling

I can't claim to be someone who "scraps" but I really love playing and journaling in photoshop. This is the result of me playing this morning. I have had a great time creating.
Playing helps me create. Playing assits me in my writing process. I make it a habit not to tell people what to do but I will suggest that you go PLAY and see what comes of it. Who knows, you might find that you....

Enjoy Life!

summer time

It's the first day of summer and oh how it feels GOOD. It also feels hot!
I just love summer and all the wonderful things it brings. The wonderful veggies and fruit we get during the summer months are just fabulous. I feel so blessed to be around the summer harvest.
Currently blueberries and corn are plentiful. I just have to come up with some simple recipes using those ingredients. Jump over to my magazine and you will see some of the simple things I cook. (Viv Magazine)
Today was hot but most of it was spent in air conditioned craft stores at the beach. Interesting to note that indeed I was at the beach all day today but never once saw the beach itself. That was just horrible:(
Anyway, I did get to go to all my favorite stores. So many ideas are going through my brain now. I can't wait to get started on the many projects I have in mind.
One project I am excited about involves sewing. I am excited to do some sewing along with crafting projects. I will take pictures to share.
In the online game of Second Life we are creating all sorts of wonderful things. I am creating short stories but the real artists continue to make lovely homes, flowers, and animations that just make me marvel. We really have some brilliant and talented people who are so kind to share. I am glad to know them.
Well, I better get back to my sewing. Stay cool and ....

Enjoy Life!

A Season For Creating

Well, I am here at the lake and we are having a relaxing time. I go to sleep late and wake up late. I just LOVE vacations. It is very HOT here and it's not summer time yet. What will the weather be like this summer if we are in the 90's now? I'll think about that later.
Yesterday one of my little neighbors went hunting for minnows to go fishing. He told his mother, "I found a whole 'class' of fish over there".
They are so cute and say things that just tickle me.
I've been visiting friends in the online game of Second Life. My good friend and brilliant creator Julia Hathor has been busy creating wonderful plants recently. If you get a chance visit one of her five islands and you will be thrilled with all the wonderful creations.
I have been creating loads of cards, post cards and tags recently. I will take picture and show you. I will also put them in my Etsy shop if you would like to purchase them.
Take care and....

Enjoy Life!

Golden Friend

My Golden Friends are leaving. I was so sad to hear of the passing of Rue.

While I loved The Golden Girls show and all who made it what it was. I must admit Rue was my favorite.

I never knew any of the Golden Girls but I loved their work and I loved how it made me laugh.

The Golden Friends came into our lives and created some really wonderful golden moments of laughter when we needed it the most.

Goodbye my Golden Friend....

Lovely Weekend

What a lovely weekend I had. I spent the weekend at the lake with my family. I love these weekend and really cherish them because they are peaceful and slow.
I was able to visit friends in the online game of Second Life. It's just fun to have friends from all over the world and share experiences.
Let me share with you one thing that made my husband laugh out loud.
On the way home we stopped at a Burger King for a quick meal. My daughter and I ordered the original chicken sandwich, cut in half. Well, the lady informed us that they don't cut sandwiches in half anymore.
On the ride around to the "drive thru" window I thought about that. "I thought this was the restaurant where you could have it your way", I said to myself.
As the lady was passing us our meal I asked, "Why don't you cut sandwiches in half anymore?" She replied, " we kept cutting ourselves so we stopped."
My husband found this extremely funny. I asked him why. He said, "You have people working in a restaurant that can't cut a sandwich in half? Now that is funny."
I think it is very sad actually. I also had to rethink the "have it your way" slogan. I don't believe you can have it your way at Burger King. If you don't believe me, go and try to order a hamburger medium rare, or a whopper with avocado sauce. While that may not be my way, it might be some body's way.
Anyway it was something.
Enjoy Life!
