My New Tattoo Design (Hopefully)

Who would have thought that a person that works online would look forward to Friday?  I mean really, it is not like we have a time clock and have to punch out every time we turn around-but today is different!!

TGIF for me today means I cannot wait until tomorrow!! Why you ask? Tomorrow I am getting another tattoo to finish off my dragonfly tattoo...I decided that I am going to get an apple blossom flower tattoo with some of the limb showing and my dragonfly sitting on top of it! The picture above is the flower I want-it is one of my photos that I took at the Botanical Gardens and it happens to be one of my favorites from that day... So if all goods well, tomorrow I will have it tattooed on my arm!

I spent yesterday working on a design that I will post below.  My newest creations so to speak... with all of this being said, I hope everyone has a fantastic weekend and able to work out in your garden, take a motorcycle ride or even get a tattoo :-D I am hope for all three myself not to sound greedy or anything!

Okay, my newest creations!!

Thoughts of Earth Day

The Earth is our Mother

An artist/photography and/or writer can get up in the morning and have thoughts for how and what they will do for the day.  But from many years of experience I have learned, you will get up and whatever you are suppose to create that day will manifest.

This morning when I got up I had full intentions to work on more of my photography and getting it posted on some sites.  But instead what happens?  I start working with my graphic arts with Earth Day on my mind!

Earth Day-April 22, 2014 is a very special day for me.  It is a day that many people will pull together and do something good for the earth and many will even set a new goal for that year.  It will be a goal that will involve doing something good for our environment and although I wish Earth Day was 365 days for everyone, I will take the one day if that means they will stick to something for the year that will help the earth.

The list is endless of things you can change and do for Earth Day,  Every year now for many, many moons I make a commitment to doing something that I know will help with the earth.  It does not matter how big or small the idea is, the main thing is sticking to the commitment.  If recycling everything is too much for you do, take one item and make a commitment to recycling it.  Like newspaper, plastic containers, and so on.  Just by doing that one tiny thing will help a lot more than you can ever imagine.

I am sure I will be writing more about this-so be sure to follow my blog and leave me note if you do and I will follow you back.  Have a Blessed Day everyone!  Here are a few of my new designs for Earth Day 2014.

Springtime in Georgia-Part One

Here we are, spring has officially arrived in the south, except this week we are having a cold front coming in. For all of those that lives in the south, we take advantage of those warmer days in between the chilly days and do what we can do.  I thought it would be interesting to share a little about my first few days of Spring so far.

I have learned a few things that could help with pest little critters in our yard.  Of course we do not want hurt them, we just want to keep them out of our flower beds and veggies!!  Here a few of my post I have written so far:

Spicy Squirrel Mix:  Yes, Virginia this does work or should I say it did work for me

Second Day of Spring:  Okay we are five days into the official date of Spring-and so far I have been a busy little bee, do I have spring fever?  You Betcha!!

First Day of Spring:  Aww, the things we think about that we need to do and trying find time to do them can be a huge chore within itself!

Planting Bags:  Okay this may not be new to you, but it is to me and I am still waiting for mine to get here...

Week of Spring:  This is the post that started it all... FIRE ANTS!!!

Of course one of the first things a photographer thinks about when spring arrives is TAKING PICTURES!!
Yes, I am so addicted to photography it truly feels as if; it runs in my blood-hmm, now that I think of it, it does, it is just an extension of my love for art!!  Here are some of my newest photos that I just uploaded this morning.

HOPEFULLY, I can keep this goal, but I want to try to post my newest artwork and photography on a daily base, you know just popping in to say Hello World and this is how I am enjoying Spring.  How about You? Are you out there enjoying this beautiful season yet?
