Happy New Year!!


I have really been a bad blogger for the last few months. Working outside the home really cuts into my time, but its been a year since I started my job, and I still really love it. I do miss my art so much though.

I work at a college, and one of the perks is free classes. Not too shabby! So I have begun taking classes to become a pastry chef. I love doing my cupcake art, it is my passion and my fun time, so I thought why not become certified in the real thing as well! I have always loved to cook and bake...not quite as much as I love creating my artwork, but nearly. I am on my second semester now, and my next two classes start next week.

My dream has always been to own a small shop. When the economy picks up, I would love to open a small patisserie that sells artwork and maybe a few cool books...a total girly place, the kind of place that I would hang out in. A place that makes you want to stay awhile and have a nice cuppa.

Anyway, less dreaming, more studying LOL I am looking forward to the kids going back to school, and getting back to work. I like a bit more structure, it keeps us all from getting bored and lazy in my house ;)

Hi darling,just a quick visit to see whats being created before I go back to hospital to have a kidney removed,hope all is well with y'all.xxoo said...

going back to hospital
3/03 Mama has taken her radiation and is having her antibiotics.We are hoping the surgery will be Friday to remove the kidney.
They will cut her from her back to the front then down to her groin,remove her bottom rib then the kidney.
The Doctor says she will be down for 6 weeks and will have to take 7-10 meds for a while.
When we left tonight she was on pain meds and said if they keep taking stuff out of her there wasn't going to be enough left when she does pass and asked the doctor to save her rib for her and trying to eat a Krispy cream doughnut and drink Mountain Dew. Her spirits are good and said to tell her darlings hello.Were taking her art and some items y'all had sent some while ago to decorate the room so she has her favorite items around her while recouping. we will keep you updated.Thanks for prayers and thoughts and the treasure and trinkets that have arrived,She is waiting till after the surgery to open goodies sent to give her spirits a lift.
Now I wonted to say a few words about Mama,she has been a great lady who always took in other children off the street to help them ,always sacrificed her life to put us through collage and always wore hand-me-downs so we had the best clothes.Worked had in the garden to can food for us and aways had a smile on her face no matter how bad things got.SHE GAVE UP AND NEVER DATED AFTER HER DIVORCE, WITH NO CHILD SUPPORT TO GIVE ALL HER TIME AND DEVOTED TO US CHILDREN AND ALWAYS GAVE UNCONDITIONED LOVE TO US.
I hope her friends here will keep her in their thoughts till she returns home.

This is Dusty,one of Mama's daughters.She has had a really bad night with the pain,If any of her friends here would like to see a donation in a small creation of art , cards or money it would be greatly appreciated. Her hospital bills and meds are running high.Thank you for any thoughts.
It can be sent to
