driving on ice

oooooooh sooo freaky!

if you roll down the windows you can hear cracking..
i of course was clueless of this the first spin my son & i took on lake minnetonka..
found out from husband who grew up on the lake about this when we got home & he
said " didn't you hear it ?"
hear what???? we were laughing.. singing to the radio & screaming "ice road truckers" as we sped across the ice!!

here's my truck in the middle of the lake.. sorta cool huh?

so we did it again yesterday ...
i love to check out ice houses ..

anyways ...
so my little Eskimo

& i were out on the ice taking the photo of the truck above & we heard it ..
the god awful crack glug sound as another car drove past us...
if you have heard it before you know the freaky sound i am talking about!!

little eskimo after hearing the sound..

from now on we are staying in the truck..windows up & music playing!

night time in the city

click image to enlarge....

i love this ..
i spelled abstract wrong in the title & when i went to change it ..
it was already bid on ..
so it sits
with my spelling error...

geez i need to spell check more often.....



life goes on....

so ...
some of you may remember i recently relocated after 13 years to minneapolis..
from phoenix.....

i need to pause a second here it shocks me too!!

ok ..
& needless to say it has been a total complete nightmare...
we are still trying to sell the first home we purchased in June ..
we lived there a month & a half &


home has sold twice.. both times has fallen thru...

so in the mist of this incredible nightmare our spirits have really plummeted
to an all time low...
so i have be making things to remind us ..

believe *color* laugh* kick ass *dance *hug

yes we all must give our best & get out there & kick ass!! :)

i decided to offer this one up for auction .. i get so many compliments on it.. it absolutely puts a smile on faces!
i hang mine right on the back of my front door so i see it every time i leave the house!

... i am sorta in limbo still.. most of my powertools are out in the garage .. the garage is NOT close to the house
quite honestly it has been cold & i just have been so bummed that i don't have my workshop set up..
but i will .. it will be warming up a bit.. until then i have a stack of canvases .. raw wood i am going old school.......... maybe i will throw in some of my papier mache.. or perhaps the doll i am making ...

stay tuned

click images to enlarge photos...
so my girlfriend a busy mommie of a beautiful 2 year old ...
has be disappointed about not having a fabulous room for her baby boy...
my opinion it IS fabulous...
but i agree it is difficult when you are in a rental and you can't really paint the walls ...
besides that they just moved in!

so i painted this little ditty for her baby elijahs rooom for christmas...

you like?
i love..
she loved to ..
& elijah was a very happy boy..
he held it & giggled ..
i love that ..
seal of approval!

it was difficult to photograph because it has so many textures & is so shiney ..
but if you click images the image enlarges & you can see details....

if you are interested in one for yourself or your little tiger..
i can hook you up too!!!

just shoot me an email....

happy happy new year..
