Excuses and I'm Lost Without My Camera!

Did everyone turn their clocks back?  I don't think Daylight Savings time is buying me any time...It's been quite a while since I posted!  I am, in fact, shocked at how fast the time has been passing, even with our clocks turned back :)  Seems there is always something crazy going on these days.  

So what's been going on that's been keeping me so busy?

First, I have to tell you about this wonderful little item I received in the mail....I can't even tell you how thrilled I was to open up  this happy painting by Stacy at Magic Love Crow.  Stacy is always so upbeat and her blog always has something fun and new going on.  She also has the best giveaways, too!

So before Halloween, Stacy had a giveaway for Magaly's All Hallows Grim Party, and guess who won...I did!

This happy little 6x6 inch painting is going right in my hallway so everyone can see it.  Isn't it adorable?

I should have a photo of it on my wall but...Part of the reason why I haven't posted lately is because my camera is on the missing list.  Well not really missing, I just left it in my locker at work.  

I've been working on a painting.  I was planning on doing a step by step of the painting process, but *sigh* my camera is at work.  Yeah, I know I already said that, right?  Okay, I can't post the work in progress, but I will show you the original photo that I'm working from...

Is that an incredible photo, or what?  My grandfather came from Poland around 1910.  He worked at the steel plant for most of his life.  Before you could get on in the plant, you had to "earn your dues" in the rail is my Papa earning his dues.  He is sitting in the front row, furthest to the right.  He is looking down.  They look like such hard workers, don't they?  But check out that guy in the looks like he has a shovel in his hand and he's about to bop the guy in front!


  1. Hello my friend ;o) Great to hear from you! I was wondering where you were? I am so happy you and your family love the painting ;o) I think I would be excited coming to your work too ;o) Too bad, no pictures, the camera is in your locker at work! LOL! It sounded like a fun Halloween! Love to see the pictures! Wink! LOL! Can't wait to see the painting when you are done! Excellent picture! And, it does look like that guy is going to hit the other guy in the head! LOL! Take Care, now go get your camera ;o)

  2. Stacy! I did disappear there for a bit, didn't I?! Trying to get myself back on track here :) Phew! As soon as I get the pics you will be seeing them here...I really need to get that camera back. I am off all week but it looks like I am going to have to make a special trip :)

  3. Yes, please make that special trip ;o)
