About Me

My photo
I've been an artist my whole life and have had so many exciting art related jobs, which makes me kinda of a jack of a bunch of trades. I'm also college grad with a BFA and went to the High School of Performing & Visual Arts here in Houston. Visit my shop at Etsy and I promise you'll most likely receive a Smile to take with you! I decided to mention that about 10 years ago I was on chemo for 2 years. The chemo worked, but left me with other Heath issues, such as a case of Fibro which left me with having to get disability.Sad news, since I had a great career, that I can not work anymore. With my Faith and determination, I am determined to still do my art. My art gives me inspiration and thank you God! Oh, and please follow my blog! I'd love to have yall join me in my show and tells and also would love to hear what yall have to show and tell!:)

Sunday in Bellaire..Let's try again!

I made it back to the Bellaire Art Fair Sunday, only 1 hr. to set up. I unloaded all my stuff, and sopping wet stuff,grrr... and layed everything out to dry! I needed all day to go through everything and find out what got damaged and I was surprised that everything was in pretty good shape, especially my 3d pieces that got soaked, didn't get ruined once they dried out, but I would not recommend my pieces to survive a thunderstorm,(I was lucky) but they are definately durable to moisture!
My friend and fellow Etsy pal, Diane (http://dsullivancr2.Etsy.com) turned up and helped me get up my tent, thank God for her! She had brought a few of her precious items & also set up her tent. I never had the chance to even mosey on over to see her for the rest of the day.
Everything kept blowing over due to the wind and also I was sorting out all my things. It was a gorgeous day though. Some of the things that I use to hold up my prints got pretty messed up, oh well, I used them that day anyway as customers kept coming up & those pieces kept falling down & I kept putting them back up and then they'd fall down again.....I finally got finished setting up & it was time to go home! What? Geez. Oh well..."Happy Face...Happy Thoughts! Tra la la!"
Anyway, I actually did pretty good with my sales, considering! Then, Diane helped me load all my stuff and helped me with my tent!!! What a sweetheart!!!
Then everybody had driven away and I got in my jeep and my car wouldn't start....No problem...... "Happy Face...Happy Thoughts! Tra la la!" Compared to Saturday, nothing could have bothered me. I mean nothing like my car not starting. What's the big deal? I called Diane as she just left & neither one of us knew how to jump a car.. exactly. I then called my Dad & he came right over. And he didn't know how to open his hood, and I couldn't figure it out either. "Happy Face...Happy Thoughts! Tra la la!"
Well all of a sudden an angel appeared disguised as a young man and helped us. My car started right up and wallah!!! I be headin' home to my ranch in a concrete building!
All is well now, except for me. I kinda, well I really couldn't move this morning when I woke up. Felt like an 18 wheeler ran over me. I had bruises, blisters, & ant bites all over me. So what did I do today? Stayed in bed the entire day and slept. I'm feeling a bit better now, and decided to visit my computer before crawling into bed again.
So...Night yall!


  1. I'm going to try this again as I couldn't get my comment posted earlier today.

    As I was saying..... Sorry you had such a lousy day at the Bellaire Rain Fest on Saturday! I'm glad that Sunday went better. And it's great that you sold some things too since Sunday was a rain day and not as many people would come back.

    You're a real trooper!

  2. I am happy that your second day went better than the first, except for the wind. May your next show be a whole lot better.
