Creativity overload

It does happen. I get into a frenzy of creativity overload and then BAM! Nothing gets done. With the current weather I should be knitting my godson's blanket, but have I? No. Shame on me. I am aiming to do some this weekend so let's pray that I get it done.
The writing has been moving along quite well. I am currently working on a battle scene for my Archangels. I have watched Gladiator to help with the layout of a scene. "Single Column!"
I have completed the ending and now the battle scene and the blow out between two major characters has to be written. I have to say, I love this story. Do I want others to love it? Of course, but if they do not, it is okay. There are more stories in this twisted, imaginative mind of mine. Oh, I have been editing my bounty hunter story as well since it needed to be gutted in some areas. Good times. The Angel story will go out first to the agencies. When that day comes, I will be very nervous, but excited.
I just got "Guilty Pleasures" by Laurell K. Hamilton to read on recommendation. I am excited to start it and will do so when I am done with this post. I also am reading "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo". I like it so far though the literal translation does make you have to review sentences a few time.
I still have to finish two pieces of artwork I started and fix some curtains, but yes, I have time to peruse sites for lovely things for me to share.

A little bit of this and a little bit of that

I have made a painting for our living room where I sewed a dress onto a canvas. Now I need pages from a decadent book, get them on there and the piece will be complete. I will take a picture once it is done to share. It was a lot of fun to do and if I knew I could make money selling them, I would do more.

We have decided to forgo a built in bookcase in the living room. While I love the whole idea of some accent piece in the living room,I would rather it be the books and art work, not the bookcase/media center that would be holding it. So now we are looking at furniture similar to this console from Ballard Design. Just at a much better price.

This display from the blog Chic Provence makes me want to grow wisteria for the rest of my life and only dine under a fabulous pergola.

Theresa Burger, I love, love, love your resin rings.

Ahhh, one of my favorite all time songs by Dead Can Dance called Indus. It is sublime.

I AM ON A MISSION

And not necessarily a wise one. Human beings like to collect things. Whether it is comic books, Dr Who paraphernalia, baseball cards, guns or weird cat art, for some reason we have a need to hunt and gather. I am not very good at things like Ebay or Craigslist. I basically suck at bidding and I get lazy about checking every hour for the possibility that someone may have posted/listed something I want.

Until now.

Recently I have gotten a bee in my big ass bonnet to locate a great deal on the following furniture pieces.

Hoosier Cabinet

I want this awesome piece of furniture for my kitchen so I can eliminate most of my upper cabinets and have a place for flour to sift out of because that would make me so cool. Some are wood, some are retro metal, all that matters it is a multi-functional piece of art that would be amazing to own..

Pie Safe


I don't make pies and that is irrelevant to my desire for one of these.

Vintage Ice Box

Where would I even use this? I don't care. We can addres…

Bad Writing Abounds In Twilight Novels

I have never had the desire to read the "Twilight" series. What I knew about them sounded like a bad young adult novel and I could not be bothered. Besides, I read Anne Rice's Vampire Series years ago, which I thoroughly enjoyed, but that was enough vampire lore for me.I have a very good friend that loves "Twilight". One day I saw her book on the table, picked it up, read one page, threw the book down and said to my husband, "This is written like absolute crap!" And yet the books are best selling series and the author makes millions. Bless her heart. I hate dumbed down books and I really hate books written as if the author never took an English class. Oddly enough, Ms. Meyer was an English major, go figure. From what I have read in regards to the Twilight books and heard during conversations about the beloved series, I know that I do not like her main characters. They sound like people that would fall under Too Stupid Too Live for me. A vapid, needs to …
