back to the drawing board

I think it will take a lot more work to fix the TNT blog button...no matter what I do it's either too big or too small. so I will have to take it back to the computer and fineggle it a little more.

thanks to some other blogs I read (mostly just this one) I found a site that might be a little more helpful than some others I have found: Tips for New Bloggers. Will look there for more info. Note: sometimes google just gives too much, but none of it is helpful. It's all about Quantity, not Quality for them. dang nabbit!

things I have been up to lately:
- knit a little green bow headband and a big orange bow headband (that I am proudly wearing to the crop and getting some funny looks!)
- finished a whole bunch more layouts for my Beginner Series Classes...they are so simple it's ridonkulous, but I'm hoping to appeal to a wider audience here!
- I tried really hard to be a good mom today, and play lots with Lucas. But whenever I was ready to sit and snuggle on the couch, he would jump off and vice versa!
- I had a nice shopping trip at Value Village the other day...lots of home goodies that I will have to share soon! I bought a plain old blue t-shirt that I can't wait to alter.
- I pulled out my drawing paper today and found some sketches in there that I did up ages ago. I added a background to the man.fox and stuck him on my wall. very handsome. I am still working on his lady friend. When I was younger I used to have such the imagination for things like this. I would draw castles and houses, and trees and gardesns. I would love to be able to set aside some time every week and just draw.

FYI...I find it easier to type with my eyes closed, that way i can visualize the keyboard and things go much quicker! note: I typed the sentence above entirely with my eyes closed and only made two typos, possibly because of the keyboard I am using...it's a bit sticky!

I am in love with this painting...too bad her stuff sells out the moment it hits her Etsy shop! Maybe one day there will be a print. And then I will be oh so happy.
I have a thing for jackalopes.

My ideal picture would be a jackalope sitting on a haybale with a big ol' grain elevator in the background.

can you just imagine!?!?

I also really like this print and the story behind it. blog and etsy

note...March 31 I found this blog sitting in draft form, never published. I think I wrote it last week. so I am scheduling it to post April 1st. yep. that should do it!
