No Sleep

Well last night at about 2 am my dog chico who is a 10 year old vicious chihuahua, woke me up. He ran outside through the doggy door and was attacking his dog house. He ran up to the dog house and jumped up and was biting the top of the opening and hanging from there. This usually happens every week or so when the neighborhood feral cats come over and piss on it.
Well it took him about 30 minutes to get out his aggression from the cat piss, before things settled down. So I'm up for 3 hours surfing the net and watching mindless tv before I fell back asleep.

Hey it's Monday!

Yup mondays not always a favorite day of the week. But today I'm feeling good. Maybe because I had a nice visit with friends yesterday who were in town. Or because I was good and did my morning exercises, in any case feeling great.
Not even a EVIL client who could destroy some great design work is going to bring me down. Just posted a new item to my Etsy site. An awesome turkey, he was my mom's I was going through some of her things and found this little guy.
I'd keep him, but I have too much clutter in my house now. Anyway he should be with someone who will appreciate him.
Ok back to the grind. I'll try and check back latter.

TGIF for real!

Friday, thank goodness! Some weeks just go on and on and on... Same old BS. This weekend is going to be just hanging out at home. Meeting some friends who are flying into Vegas for a wedding. Living in Vegas you get lots of visitors. I love it! I had a job this week that was one of those nightmares from Hell! Client sends copy last minute only time to dump copy into the layout. Send it back for THEM to proof. They ok and off to the printer. Printed it then they notice that there copy was missing stuff. blah blah blah.. Anyway, had to redo it. They had to pay for two printings. Not a happy turnout, but such is life of a graphic designer. I think I get out the crayons and pretend I'm six again.
Have a great day!

I've fallen and I can't get up!

Ok, no I didn't fall. Just been so busy with work no time for blogging. My husband Tom was in Florida for a week and came home Friday night with the flue so with work and taking care of him, it's been a roller coaster ride. He's feeling better and catching up with work so I can breath now!
Hanging in there and perhaps I get up tomorrow!

The Cute Puppy

On the right of this blog you will see our newest addition to the animal house. His name is Pickles. My daughter who recently moved out decided she wanted a puppy. Well it didn't take long for her to realize that puppies are nearly as much trouble as babies. ( A great lesson for a 20 year old to learn) anyways. She works and she felt bad for having to leave him in her bathroom while she was away at work so he was a "Visitor" for a while till one day.... He he adopted us. As you can se he is adorable. But as you may know or not. Puppies need a lot of training before you can "relax".
Today for example, my day started quite early 5 am up to finish a project that I had only received copy for last night after 10:00pm. So I was up to finish. Well computer was not in the mode and we had battle. After playing marry-go-round with three computers in my home office. I got it finished. Because I had been pre-occupied. Pickles had a hay day. He left a nice gift on the carpet in the family room. He then Peed on the cat box. and chewed up a pair of my undies from the laundry. All this before 8am!
Well after re-installing Adobe software and cleaning up my mess from my scream rampage this morning I'm exhausted. I think Pickles is going to visit his Mom ( my daughter) tomorrow.
Have a great day.. Cuz I didn't Somebody has to! Even if it isn't me.

See you tomorrow!

Monday Blahs

Why does Monday have to always feel so gloomy. I hate to say good bye to weekends, I think a 2 day work week would suite me just fine! But alas I do have to eat and pay the utilities. And of course the Kids need shoes... My daughter only has 42 pairs of shoes why should she be deprived?
I had very good intentions today to do some work on my Jewelry craft. But the inspiration just wasn't there. I blame it on Monday Blahs and the phone keep ringing or the dogs were wrestling under my desk. Pick one!

So the day has finally come to the end and I still have design work to take care of. Those darn clients. What is up with having a Newsletter and having ever other sentence bolded. Kind of defeats the purpose of using bold. But you cant convince them of that. So you bold the hell out of the thing and hope that nobody finds out your were even involved with it.

Ok time to burn some dinner for the family. They like that. I tell them its a special cooking technique I saw on the Food channel.

See you tomorrow for terrible Tuesdays!

A new day....

So this is my blog. Blog who ever came up with that name. Sounds like some disgusting porridge your forced to eat because it will make you grow up to be healthy and strong.
Anyway, everyone has a blog so I thought why not. I can ramble on as well as the next slob.
I do want to say this. It does feel nice to have a place on the internet that I can say is mine.

Ok I am a graphic designer, I do ok. You don't get rich as a designer unless your a Super Star. I have had the luck to work with one of those "Super Stars" he has taught me well. I do appreciate the opportunity to work with such a talented individual.

I've recently felt the need to do something creative for me, not a client who will destroy your work with stupid ideas of how they can do a better job than you.

So I ran across some websites about fused glass and really got interested in trying this out. So before I invested a small fortune for the equipment to do it I took a couple classes and really liked the idea of working with HOT GLASS. The thing that really intrigued me was you don't really know what the glass will look like till it is finished in the kiln.

Now I've set up a shop at Etsy where many talented artist and venders sell their wares.
The thing I like about Etsy is that you have to have made the item yourself. No re-selling items unless they are Vintage. I must say it is a very nice community and I'm happy that I found it.
I like the idea of buy from artist directly. Lately I'm not so happy with corporate america so the more I can support other artists the better I feel.

I hope to be posting some great examples of art and items from Etsy Shops soon.

Thanks and I look forward to getting to know everyone who posts here.
