~*Inspired by Lori Anderson*~

Sometimes I think of people while I design.
This is what came to be while thinking of Lori Anderson.

Updating my blog a bit...

I am finally adding more links to my sidebar. Come and view some of the photo albums of my zine, art to wear, miniature books, micro mini sweets, 2-d art and more.

I do admit that I have yet to formally submit my work for publication... However, I have been blessed with kind online art friends who have invited me to be published along with them.
(Alma Stoller and Ruth Rae)- And recently Peggy & Christine who interviewed me for their multi media charm book soon to be released in a matter of weeks.
I have added icons to my sidebar to show which~*Stampington*~ publications & books that I have been a part of.

Mothers day

To all of the mothers who have it rough, who's children are sick, disabled, out of control, mentally unstable...

It's not at all easy... You deal with a lot.
Sometimes I see that it breaks you down physically, leaving you weak and oh so tired...emotional and on edge.

The constant bills, worries, headaches, hospital visits, case workers, doctors... It seems like way too much for any human to bear.

To all of the moms, no matter what your situation is, I wish for you to feel happy. To feel cheer.
To feel loved.

One of my favorite jokes... But I learned it as *Tippy* not *Bubba*

Growing up, this was always one of my favorite jokes.
Bubba was bragging to his boss one day, "You know, I know everyone there is to know. Just name someone, anyone, and I know them." Tired of his boasting, his boss called his bluff, "OK, Bubba how about Tom Cruise?" "Sure, yes, Tom and I are old friends, and I can prove it." So Bubba and his boss fly out to Hollywood and knock on Tom Cruise's door, and sure enough, Tom Cruise, shouts, "Bubba! Great to see you! You and your friend come right in and join me for lunch!" Although impressed, Bubba's boss is still skeptical. After they leave Cruise's house, he tells Bubba that he thinks Bubba's knowing Cruise was just lucky. "No, no, just name anyone else," Bubba says. "President Clinton," his boss quickly retorts. "Yes," Bubba says, "I know him, let's fly out to Washington." And off they go. At the White House, Clinton spots Bubba on the tour and motions him and his boss over, saying, "Bubba, what a surprise, I was just on my way to a meeting, but you and your friend come on in and let's have a cup of coffee first and catch up." Well, the boss is very shaken by now, but still not totally convinced. After they leave the White house grounds, he expresses his doubts to Bubba, who again implores him to name anyone else. "The Pope," his boss replies. "Sure!" says Bubba. "My folks are from Poland, and I've known the Pope a long time." So off they fly to Rome. Bubba and his boss are assembled with the masses in Vatican Square when Bubba says, "This will never work. I can't catch the Pope's eye among all these people. Tell you what, I know all the guards so let me just go upstairs and I'll come out on the balcony with the Pope." and he disappears into the crowd headed toward the Vatican. Sure enough, half an hour later Bubba emerges with the Pope on the balcony. But by the time Bubba returns, he finds that his boss has had a heart attack and is surrounded by paramedics. Working his way to his boss' side, Bubba asks him, "What happened?" His boss looks up and says, "I was doing fine until you and the Pope came out on the balcony and the man next to me said, "Who's that on the balcony with Bubba?"

Lemony chocolate 1/2 inch polymer clay cupcake. I HAD FUN MAKING THIS!

The indoor low watt bulbs are not too great for photo taking.
So bear with the lighting please! This is a bead and it is make entirely of polymer clay.
Less than 1/2 inch in size and so cheerful looking! Thank you to the 2 Nancy's who both wanted yellow and orange cupcakes for inspiring me!
