I will still be a bloggin but not as frequently and I will be checkin in to see what my wonderful, and creative blogging friends are up to.
But the sun is shinin' and theres a light breeze and a beautiful nest of little baby birds outside my kitchen window. So I think I'll inhale the senses of summer, take it all in, fill myself up with the beauty of nature and all it's inspiration and then perhaps I will be able to exhale something wonderful....feeling recharged once again.
It's summertime and the livin' is easy. Or so I hope....lol. Hope everyone is having a beautiful day and enjoying the season.

Good Morning Blogger Friends! I hope everyone had a nice Mom's Day. I know I did. I requested no gifts here, as money is tight, and quite honestly, my kids are the best gift I ever received! Not much to report here, still doing the Spring Cleaning thang and hoping that sometime soon, I will have a pile of old brick in my yard! I've been wanting a little brick patio for years and a friend of ours in landscaping says he just might have some old brick for me this week, from a job he's doing. Won't that be faboo! Of course, it'll be even more faboo, if I manage to do the job right, as I am tackling it myself. But another friend has instructed me on just what to do...down to the last detail. So we'll see.
Anyhooo....I need some HONEST opinions from you all. I had this idea of contacting the local realtors in my area (of which there are many) , offering them Gift Certificates to Art n Joy to give to their clients who have bought a house. Personally, I think it's a great marketing idea. BUT being that my art is not very mainstream, I'm wondering if they'll all just have one big hoot and think I'm some kind of foolish, weirdo! lol But then again, a lot of people buying houses here are from NYC either looking for permanent residence or a summer home. And as you know, anyone from a major metropolis is a little more opened minded, when it comes to art and culture. SO having said all that...what do you all think? Is my art appropo enough for the idea? I need HONESTY so let it rip! Thanks all and Happy Tuesday!
Oh yes, the art above is titled "I Have No Home But Me" (A fave quote of mine by Anne Truitt) and is available at Art n Joy on etsy!
