Whew! Christmas is past, one more time, one more year. I am wiped out and drunk on it all. I got to hang out with my best friend and my sister all in one place at one time. We started a new dirty Santa tradition. My Baby Brother was here. Grand kids, nieces, nephews, and grandmas. New and Old loves. Mikes Chili, mom’s cherry delight, Cowboy’s smoked meat and a lot of sweet things no one will admit to eating. Coffee, tea, laughter, grand babies first Christmas, the best Christmas prayer ever, Diana’s Christmas ring, and a humping dog later….. we are done. A huge grouping of twisted, loving people gathering to hold a perfectly imperfect birthday party for the Nazarene Hippy who’s message changed the world….a celebration of the good news, … the true first love of my life, Jesus Christ. ( deep breath, hard sigh, huge smile).
It’s over. What. A. Mess! tomorrow I gotta clean this crap up, But for now….
I am letting it go….
Leaving the paper on the ground….
The left overs in the fridge….
Turning off the cell phone…
Oh Patti Medaris Culea, I am glad to see you.
This was my Christmas present to myself from Cowboy ( he chose a chainsaw- boring). I have had my eye on these DVD,s for so long. 10 hours of techniques and tricks. More dreamy dolls for me to take out my artistic temper tantrums on. My hope and goal is that I will have developed dolls I love to create for my own little shop one of these days. But for now I will learn from the masters, bask in the processes of colors, dyes, fabrics, paints, lace, tulle, feathers, features, glitters, emphera and beads and live vicariously through the fantasy characters I create.
>>>>> Here I come 2014, ready or not.
