I overcame my fears and did his belly. I also placed a big order at Amazon! So excited that they have the paint cart from Ikea! My husband of thirty three years (today) turned his reward points over to me in the form of Amazon gift cards. What a guy, I think I will keep him. I have a fude ball pen, stabilo pencil and the six inch circle gelli plate on the way! So excited. Oh and some really over priced deli paper. They have us ladies figured out out and have raised the prices online. I like the Brown Paper brand better than another kind so paid the inflated price. I also ordered some rice paper to print on. All that and a crop-a-dile. Woo hoo!

Riki had a really bad spell today so didn't do much until he went to bed. He went outside and ran until he depleted all his sugar. It took several hours to get him to come back around. All that after him eating a four inch toothpick on Tuesday. I swear I thought he was a goner then. So stressful to have a seven pound dog with low blood sugar.
I can tell that my latest gelli prints have inspired new color in the garden.
We added the Rose Canna and Stormy Weather lilac climbing rose last weekend. I wasn't sure how the pink and orange would look together but it is really pretty. Very bollywood. I put the seven canna's in the pots along the forty foot bed and the two roses replaced the beautiful honeysuckle that we destroyed. That thing got aphids on it every year and was so disgusting we got rid of it. I don't want something out back that we have to put insecticide on, besides the fact I'm afraid those aphids would infest every thing out there.

The heat tool cuts like butter, I usually avoid things that can burn me because it hurts! I laid my hand right on the hot iron, lucky I have quick reflexes so no major damage, but do we really have to feel pain for our art? I use art to deal with life's pain so I don't need any more. Ouch! I could never be a glass artist because I would spontaneously combust and burn the house down.
I actually witnessed the incident between the grass hopper and tiny hummingbird in my backyard. She had no idea he was twice her size.

Now I think it needs something but just not orange.
This is really nice I think. I spent yesterday carving the stamps and then making a journal page with them. It was really fun. My mother's birthday was yesterday, she would have been 79 years old. She has been gone 20 years and I am now 59, the age she was when she died. Only now do I understand how young she was and how much more life she could have had. She was truly a tortured soul.
