It's as if you were looking in the window

in Troll-topia!

(Actually, this started out as a photo editing project for Flower Art Friday.
I think I may be ADHD.)

Thanks for Fruebel, Kristen Aagard,  Doris Castle,
and Kim Klassen


Thanks to Cemerony, Becca Herman, Bonnie Zieman,
Amanda Frijo-Tobin and Bleuesse.

Me and My Camera

I live alone.  So my camera is my significant other.
Oh, please don't feel sorry for me, I'm quite happy with the arrangement.
My camera does not leave its dirty underwear on the bathroom floor.
My camera does not fart in bed, deny having done it, and then laugh hysterically as my eyes water.

You get the drift.

So over at
we are inviting you to create something with photography as a broadly-interpreted theme.
A VERY broadly-interpreted theme.

There is no way to do this challenge wrong.  
(well actually there is no way to do any Opus Gluei Challenge wrong.)
How cool is that?

I hope you go over to 

and see what wonderful artistikness the Poobahs have created.
I promise you, you will not be disappointed.
Go there.
Go there now.
And make something wonderful and link it up so we can admire it.

You owe it to yourself.

(PS, if you are so inclined as to want to see some of my actual photography,
 you just need to scroll down and  click on my photo on the right sidebar 
and it will take you to my daily calendar.)

Or not.
Just be happy.
Don't worry.
Be happy.
I heard that somewhere.

The prisoners are grandma, mommy and very unhappy baby boy.

I've been in withdrawal from my digital art.
Started work after many months of doing what I wanted to 24/7

Well, I made stuff.

Red Hot

My steamy friend Gini (hey, that rhymes!) Poobah Extraordinaire has challenged us to create something red hot, hot, hot.
What does that bring to mind for you? 
The weather.
Your hot flashes?
A mad passionate weekend in a tent in the Sahara desert with Lawrence Olivier?
Have you been over to
If you go over there, you're sure to find something that raises your temperature.
I plan to spend the rest of the day on my deck with a handsome,
oiled young man cooling me with a palm leaf.
(I wish)

You have until Saturday, August 25 to create something

Just Because

I am SO missing creating and blogging.  
I hope that my health improves and that this new job I have doesn't kill me before that happens.  haha.
I pulled this piece out of my files just to prove to myself that I still "have it".
I feel better now.
I hope to see more of me here this weekend.  
Have a great weekend everyone!
