Sooooo not about me….

The blog world is full of millions of tightly woven little bands of cyber friends. The friends I’ve made through it is the most rewarding thing about blogging for me.

It’s strange but some of my blogging friends have become almost like family. I worry when I don’t hear from them for a couple of days. Which brings me to the point of this post…

It ain’t always all about me…

Sometimes you just gotta stop dwelling on your own petty issues and devote some time to caring for others. That’s all I’m saying. This is MY blog and I use it as a sounding board for whatever dumb rant is in my head, dumping all my silliness into the webosphere with a peck on the cheek and a wave goodbye. Y’all do with it as you will….

Today, it’s about my friends, my wonderful blogging friends who never EVER fail to show me all the love and support they can across Internet. They cheer me up when I’m in a funk and they send me words of encouragement and understanding when I’m in a quandary over something or another. They send virtual hugs….

One dear friend is fighting like hell not to be consumed by depression and/or the side effects of the anti-depressants prescribed for her. Depression is a massive vortex that just wants to suck her into its dark and ugly depths. At times it renders her incapable of coherent thought, or the desire to get out of bed. She struggles, clawing her way up to the surface only to slip back down. It’s an exhausting battle and I worry about her. I’m not in any way a church going person, but I pray to a God I know she believes deeply in. It’s all I can do….

Which pisses me off….

The other friend who has been on my mind a lot in recent days has lost a Parent and is grieving and hurting. Also walking around with pneumonia as she does all she can to care for and comfort those around her, never allowing herself the time to truly grieve. She’s in pain, physically and emotionally and I just want so much to put my arms around her and let her rest her head on my shoulder while I pat her back and whisper that it’s all  going to be OK. And make her some chicken noodle soup. Sending electronic hugs is all I can do….

Which also pisses me off….

I want to help. I want to make them feel better. So I’m asking the rest of you to help me help them by taking a moment to say a prayer for them if you’re so inclined, to send well wishes and happy thoughts for them into the universe in hopes that those thoughts and wishes float back down to earth and land on the hearts of my friends…

Because today, it’s all about them….


What do you say when you got nuthin’ to say?

I got nuthin’….

No rants, no whines, no exciting news, nada…..I’m thinkin’ that’s kinda a good thing. I’ve been keeping my brain so busy with whirling thoughts of ALL THE CRAFTS I want to do that I haven’t had time to get pissed off about anything, and life in general is running on a pretty even keel…

I kinda like it….

Yesterday was trip #3 in a week to Hobby Lobby, plus I threw in one to Michael’s. ‘Cuz I don’t have enough crafty crap to do already….actually I needed a cart to store the crafty crap in, and some odds and ends to bring all the ideas in my noggin to fruition. Of course, once I get home with my treasure, I think of 67 other things I wanted needed. I cannot go back for awhile, my debit card is worn thin and Hubs expects the house to be stocked with groceries and other such practical nonsense….


Seriously, if I had won the damn lottery I’d have just bought the friggin’ Hobby Lobby and then ALL THE CRAFTINESS WOULD BE MINE. Muah ha ha!

Sunday I painted a canvas, hand lettered a song lyric on it, decided my hand lettering sucked and last night I painted over the whole thing…..did you know it’s hard to cover up sharpie marker with acrylic craft paint? I didn’t. I do now…


Also, I made my first paper flower last night whist waiting for the cover up coat #3 of paint to dry and watching the season premiere of “Game of Thrones”. Love that show, I’m reading the books (or would be if I wasn’t currently obsessed with the craft room redo)…

I really dig how it turned out, especially for a first try and while preoccupied with medieval antics….

Ya know my favorite thing about Hobby Lobby and Michael’s? They have more than just craft supplies. They have pretties….

This was needed. N.E.E.D.E.D....

It called to me from the 40% off Spring items isle…..I had no choice, really. I heeded it’s plaintive cry y’all.  It needed me, and I can never turn my back on a pretty vase in need. I’m a giver….

I told the checkout lady at Hobby Lobby when she greeted me by name that if my Hubs came in asking about me I was never there….Bitch better have my back, I’ve donated my paycheck to her store….

I could get a lot more crafting done if it wasn’t for this whole pesky job thing….Maybe I should work at Hobby Lobby….wonder what their employee discount is??



This is not the post I was hoping to write…

I had it all planned out….had picked out a cute outfit to have a picture of my beaming self taken in….

And then a bunch of other Poopheads won my damn money….

So here I sit, still poor. And thoroughly pissed off. 

I’m gonna go do some sanding, maybe beat some furniture with a hammer to distress it and work off my frustrations, sling some paint on something. Perhaps today I can complete the process of glueing my fingers together with Mod Podge.

I want my $5 bucks back….
