Click click click goes the typewriter

When I was a little girl my mom had the most beautiful typewriter. It is was a turquoisey-blue color. Just like the one here on flickr. I had fun typing little stories using both the black and red ink. Winding the ribbon and getting ink on my fingers.

In high school I took two years of "typing"...and it was on both manual and electric typewriters. It makes me feel SO OLD to think that they still had MANUAL typewriters when I was in high school! Of course all this learning to type was intended for use on typewriters,. Boy did I luck out that I can use those skills I learned on that old dinosaur for my computer now! I can type like the wind thanks to all those "The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog" exercises.

My little typing girl is currently up for grabs on ebay.

Square Foot Art

Last month I took part in AWOL gallery's square foot show. The art show consists of hundreds of paintings from artists, all of them created in a one foot by one foot square format. Then, all these "square foot" canvases are arranged in a grid on the walls of the gallery. There are so many wonderful ideas there!

I entered 2 paintings. One of Frida on her bike, and one of a gypsy fortune teller. Frida sold, and now I am offering the fortune teller up for grabs on ebay!

May your future be bright!

Wrestle Mania!

One thing I've learned about cats is, they love to act crazy in the night! As soon as I turn the lights off Lily starts tearing around the apartment like a maniac. We now have a ritual of wrestling at bedtime. I get her food out for the night, put down fresh water for her, turn out the lights and then we WRESTLE! She loves it! The plus side is it gets her tuckered out and ready to sleep the night through. My newest painting shows me and Lily doing our nightly wrestle. Below is a photo of Lily when she was just a kitten wrestling with a little pink purse toy I got her. :)

Bedtime Stories

I like to read in bed. It calms my mind down and makes me sleepy. My cat Lily always snuggles behind my legs when I'm reading. She knows I'll be still for a long time so she makes herself comfortable.

I got a new comforter. It has pretty red cherry blossoms all over it. I loved the way it looked like a drawing so I had to get it. Lily made herself right at home on it. (She is making a silly face!)

Sweet dreams!
