My online journal of the process of making goals, turning negative to positive, artistic visualization and practicing gratitude for the talents I've been given.
Be the creative person you are by practicing The Secret of Universal Law, visualization and gratitude.
Without art life is gray - Art brings color to the world!
Here's where I blog about my newest art pieces, how they came to be and how I am creating a better life as an artist through a new attitude.

The last few weeks have been difficult for me. I'm going through the process of getting some serious dental work done and the pain has been a pain, sorry for the bad pun! I don't know about you but tooth pain is the worst for me. I've had bleeding ulcers, I've had my ankle ripped open to the bone in a motorcycle accident and I've dealt with a seriously tweaked back for 20 years but they never got me down. But one darn bad tooth and I'm whining like a baby! And I have more than one bad tooth!

I actually have had to take a few days and not work - OMG, I must be sick, lol.

Even with some serious dental issues going on in the last few weeks I've managed to complete 3 new designs for my friend Eileen for her new Feisty Side of Fifty products (coming soon to a CafePress store near you!)

Eileen's blog is baby boomer themed and aimed at boomer women - and since Eileen herself identifies so strongly with the sixties decade, we're going with a sixties/hippie feel updated to today's over 50 women.

(The following 3 designs are copyrighted 2009 by Feisty Side of and All Rights are Reserved. No permission is given to share, distribute, copy, post, or reproduce without written permission from Feisty Side of Fifty.)
I can't wait to see these on some tees and cups and other fun stuff - hint, hint, Eileen, Spring is coming and I could use a few nice new tee shirts, lol!!

And, btw, if you want to sell products and need some great graphics and/or slogan help - feel free to contact me at! I'll be happy to give you a quote.

And I also designed a couple of recipe cards for The Martini Diva and The Diva of Tiny Foods this week - the Academy Awards are this coming Sunday, Feb 22nd. I'm a big Oscar fan and love to treat the night as a party and figure others might want to do the same so it's Oscar Fans week at both sites all week.
And I've posted a piece of martini greeting card art on my Easy Greeting Cards site, The Cosmopolitan Martini Recipe and will be posting another later today!
Plus I'm going to add another feature here occasionally - a revisit to some of my existing art! Today I'm revisiting THE MONA LISA MEETS MODERN CONSUMERISM:

VISUALIZE VISUALIZE: Mostly I've been visualizing new teeth. But I have also been visualizing the kinds of food I'm going to get to eat again with them! Sore teeth and crunchy foods don't mix and I love crunchy!

IT'S ALL IN HOW YOU LOOK AT IT: Though I dislike having pain and having to take pain pills it has allowed me to catch up on some more reading and watch some movies I've been wanting to see. I haven't produced the amount of work that I usually do and I was beating myself up over it a bit (especially after taking some "me" days earlier this month!), but I think the universe might have a reason for this little dip in productivity so I'm giving it the benefit of the doubt, at least for the time being.

  • I'm grateful I'm finally getting the teeth issue resolved. No, I'm not looking forward to the actual work but I'm casting my visions forward to when it's all done and over and I'm crunching on nuts and a nice juicy steak again!
  • I'm grateful I have to time to be able to baby myself and my sore teeth right now. My usual work schedule is not one that allows for any amount of pampering or whining. Hey, it's okay to whine occasionally - just don't make a habit of it!
  • I'm grateful it's something that can be taken care of. There are many people out there who suffer from illnesses that never go away. My issues are temporary. This is a blessing.
  • I'm grateful for the fun designs that I got to do for Eileen at Feisty Side of Fifty - they're kinda cool if I do say so myself!
  • I'm grateful for my little Pixel who comes up to me and gives me "boo boo kisses" when I'm hurting - how cute is it that my little dog is trying to kiss away the pain? Awww.

Talk about grateful--I'm sooooo GRATEFUL to my amazingly gifted friend who created these wondrous works of wearable art for Feisty Side of Fifty! I'm way over fifty and will now proudly flaunt my age in my new, colorful and oh-so-feisty Tees.
Thank you so much, Ms. Pop Art Diva!
