Still Reaching...

Hallo all! Well, here is piece started long ago that I finally finished. The only art done in a while. Well, I did do a little somethin somethin last nite, but not worth showing really. More of a commentary than art I think. On our economic situation.
You see, our State Mortgage Assistance Prgram has DENIED us for any mortgage assistance!
It seems, that we don't make enough money and do not show prospects of making enough money in the near future! WELL GEE, if we were making the money we wouldn't need them...dontcha think??!!!
What a lot of crazy BS! I am so ....aggghhh....I don't know a mixed bag of emotions, some of which I'm sure you can guess.
I would really like to get through just one day without the nagging buzz in my mind of how we are going to get through another week, another bill, next week, and get the picture.
The buzz is like bad tv static that you just can't turn off.
SO we are still taking any contributions anyone can pass along to our family basket fund via to while we get through this mess and the sun shines down on us once again.
So yes, I am still reaching out....any which way I can.
Hope everyone is having a loving and creative February! BlueJude Hugs to all!

Hello All,

As you all know, right now times are hard for many families. Families are losing much needed income due to job loss, rising prices, family illness or death, and many other things during this recession. As a community we need to try to help each other out..

What we have done is created a website where a 'Family In Need' can raffle off used, un-used, or no longer needed items to help them earn extra income to support them throughout these tough times.... “One man’s garbage is another man’s gold”.. A family that raffles off an item will receive the proceeds to help maintain expenses around the house.. Also, a portion of the proceeds will be donated to the American Cancer Society.

What we are asking, is if you know of a family that is in need, if you are in need, or if you want to help a struggling family please visit the website ( and let everyone know about the website so that we can help out the community. I am sure that there will be valuable raffled items that all will enjoy.

Thanks for all the support and please get the word out about this website.

Current Raffle: 2003 Ford F-150 Crew Cab, Raffle Ticket are $20 and can be purchased online at
