no internet?....

okay i just found out what purgatory must feel like.....no internet for 24 hours...don'tthey realize that the internet IS my socila life...i don't have friends other than the ones i have here....i seriously think this as a room or location..it is so weird! but i have friends all over the world right here in my studio office! Speaking of which..please please please go to the bottom of my page here and add yourself to my buddy map! that would be so fun to see who actually reads my blog! well::: bleep bleeepbleeep:::: it posted the person's i got it from...ignore that statement....i will figure it out later.....lol*** waaaaaa I want a buddy map***** end of whine....
okay so what does a girl like me do when her internet goes down...aside from wild sex...(okay i made that up..i dream of wild sex...hey a girl has got her dreams...oh wait! that is tomorrow's acitivity...yeah i know TMI!!!..rofl!)...any hoo....what does an artist girl do when her internet is down..well she makes art....and since i love all of you i am going to share my most favorite image that i made for my fairy riders...it involves my favorite puppy and one of my favorite vintage images.....you are welcome to click on it and dowload the high res image to play with in your artwork!~....


Okay lets see...what did i do in the last 24?...Well the excitement didn't really start until we were at football practice...before that it was the normal get to the gym by 9am, work out..come home to three sweet but in-the-way-of-normal-life-construction guys..a pack of wild kids and half the neighborhood and the balloon pooping pug puppy..you know normal stuff. Okay cleaned the house, worked on my tornado struck storage room and got on the eliptical for 20 minutes..about died....and got Ty ready for football. (i am sure i could think of 40more things but won't bore you with the details...We had to get there early so he could get his game uniform. So we are there for a bit before practice start...the uniform guy shows up and tells us that a storm is coming....well a few minutes later Ashton calls to tell me he heard a storm was coming...so i keep watching the sky.......so about half an hour into practice Ashton calls again yelling .. "that storm is hellacious!! mom..it about blew me across the parking lot...it is coming your way in less than 20 minutes"....so i relay this info to all the other mom';s...they all look up at me with that 'deer in the headlight look' and dont even more....well i see the ominious clouds and start packing up...now realize i am not an alarmist..remember..i have 6 kids...i have seen about 90% of the events that can or will happen...but i thought i was being smart and would plan ahead and pack up....i did make a bit of a smart remark back at the other moms and dad's..."ah don't every one jump up all at once now...."..lol!
well it gets a bit closer, call home and tell the girls that there is a huge storm..and i exagerate a bit at this point, tell them,there is a tornado warning...well...there was one in the other county...i guess this created a bit of a panic a few minutes later when the wind picked up!..ask me some day about 'wonder woman Stephanie'...lol so i drive home, storm hits...nothing happened at home other than a neighbors tree lost a HUGE branch...kids are running around like mad men and i ended up with a pile of teenage girls. Stephanie had Salina invite her gf's over and was doing hair and make up on all of them to build a make-up portfolio....so i played photographer later too...lol!
(Salina with make-up and hair done))

so, then i came up and did artwork on my now internet-less computer and created a few more 'Fairy Riders' for new sheets i am creating.....sooooo here is my favorite... for you to use!(click on it to get the big hi res image to download)
oh i did sneak in the start of my art-to-art swap stuff for Santa and Kris...but that has to remain hush hush until they recieve theirs....so stay tuned for more fun and art.....
and if you read this far...thank you! thank you!~muwah..i love ya baby....

Don't you love the excitement of a storm ;=)

Are you sure that is Salina? I wouldn't have recognized her. She looks gorgeous, doesn't she? Good genes, heh?

Love Dad

It's wonderful that you're using Oscar in your art. Salina looks beautiful. Is that grown up football player Tyrus? I lucked out during the storm, but am currently storing food in my freezer for two friends who won't bet back electricity until Monday or later and there's some serious tree damage not too far from here. Glad to hear you didn't suffer any damage.
