Is Facebook the Drunken Phone Call of the 2010's?

It's late. You've been drinking. Your mind wanders to a time when you were not alone. You think about (insert random ex's name here) and decide to give them a call.. but wait! Now, we have facebook! You can just add them to your friends list and let them know you were thinking about them without that awkward, ill-advised, alcohol-flavored phone call of slurred regret.
Am I saying that looking your ex's up on facebook is a bad thing? Hardly. I don't know about most women.. I never seem to know about most women.. but I do know that it's nice to hear from SOME of my ex's on occassion. The recent addition to my facebook friends list made me smile. I had to open my little wooden treasure chest and retrieve this:

Yeah, it's looking a little aged, but I'm surprised I still have it. (And I hope I didn't embarrass John A. too much. There are a few John's on my facebook list anyway, so no one knows who this past sweetheart is.)

To all the guys in my past who treated me decently, thank you. I appreciate that I can look back on some of my past relationships and smile.

Are You Serious?

 I worked on this tween animation in Photoshop and could not figure out why I couldn't change the position of the images. Then, I realized that I had to make duplicate layers of the images for it to work. sigh. 
I hate Photoshop. It has a way of making the complicated simple and the simple impossible.

Here's a collage that I am working on for class. I'm going to include the quote from Paul Gauguin,
"I shut my eyes in order to see."

Busy, Busy, Busy!

I've been working on several projects. is coming along nicely. I'm in the process of adding more content to help people who are working on goals such as starting a home business or making money with writing.

As soon as I get a chance, I will be changing the format of my Path from Poverty blog. The step-by-step instructions for making money from websites and related articles are being moved to The blog will remain active, but it will be more about my personal experiences true to blog form.

I'm designing a line of graffiti t-shirts. GraffiT shirts will be available soon. I have just begun developing the website- I have a photo shoot this weekend to get photos of people in my t-shirts. Within the next couple weeks, the website and t-shirts should be ready.

As you can see, I'm keeping myself busy. I hope you all are doing well and working on your goals...

Watercolor Assignments

This week in Mixed Media class, we got
an introduction to watercolor. It was a bit difficult for me to get used to a new medium, but I think I have the basic idea. I'll need a lot more practice and it may never be my favorite medium, but I would like to feel more confident in using watercolor.
