Freaking New Year Shmu Year!

Yeah, so it’s a New Year and I’d like to say that I’m highly ambitious and motivated for this whole new year thing.
It’s a chance to start anew…make the world brighter, have a better outlook…whatever.
But you know what?
I’m not…
I’m not driven to do a damn freaking thing except eat my Cheerios and watch Spongebob.
Oh sure, I will still promote other people’s artwork, because I’m all about that.
But to do more than that…um, no, not really…eh, it depends on the day.
The color of the clouds and if there is something shiny to distract me.
I could lie to you and everyone else and say that, yes, I am going to do so many wonderful things.
But who the hell am I kidding?!
I have the attention span of a freaking gnat…on a good day!
I have the ambition of a Sloth.
What am I going to possibly do?!
I’m lucky if I can remember to pay my bills on time and feed myself.
Which reminds me, I’m hungry and I need a shower…
But hey, rest assured my fellow artist friends, I always got your back and will be available for reposting and sharing all your creative endeavors!

Winter Beauty and Absence

So for the past couple of months I’ve taken a bit of a break from being here…
The last couple of months have been an emotional roller coaster.

I lost a dear cousin of mine to Cancer and had my on-again/off-again boyfriend move out on me without warning.
Also, I found out that he had been cheating on me almost the whole duration of our three year relationship.
But hey…it’s better I find out after three years than 20 years!
I also have made the decision that I need to move back to my hometown of La Crosse Wisconsin so I can be around my family and dear friends.
I love Fifield Wisconsin and I’ve made some solid friends here and have taken some amazing pictures!

So, needless to say, with all the turmoil, my art and my postings became scarce here.

For my back to beauty picture and my return to posting,
I bring you this Winter Scene that was taken in Fifield Wisconsin and had some creative editing done.

A true inspiration for women

Recently my friend, Jennifer Livingston of WKBT News Channel 8, was the target of a cyber-bully.
The man admitted in his letter to her that he doesn’t watch her show or know her, but chose to target her about her weight.

The letter made me cry, but as per her classy style, Jennifer handled it with complete poise.
The way only a true professional can do.
Not only did she address the issue of the message, she made such a powerful statement about cyber-bullying that she drew the attention of the Ellen Degeneres show!
Because of her courage to stand-up for herself and young girls everywhere, I am celebrating her message here, with all of you.
