Monday Blast!

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , on October 4, 2010 by dianaswonderworks

Well, it is the beginning of a new week, and a new season too! Fall has landed and no sign of summer since it began. Today it is in the 60’s and tonight high 30’s and low 40’s, in my neck of the woods. It is looking like winter will be on the cold side this year, maybe we can even hope for some snow! Around these parts, snow is slim to none. Good news in the clan, my daughter finally started a new job today, she has been looking for five months or more. So, congratulations to her! That is one stress off my mind, hopefully this is only the beginning for me and the ones I love. With any luck at all, may this week bring lots of good news to a lot of people. That would make it a great week, in my book.

Today, I am going to the docs to see about my tooth, supposedly full price, since I do not have a job. Not sure how that works, but I will go, need things checked out for sure. When I do get to go to work, I want this to be water under the bridge. Also, I need to finish my sunflower painting, sorry guys, I know it has been a while, I have been so tired. Hopefully today and tomorrow, I will be feeling better and be able to get some work done. I am looking forward to a new project too! Also, with all the transportation problems lately, it has cut into my sleeping time and so my energy is hot. Not to mention the time I lose everyday, running here and there, hours lost everyday, it makes it hard to get things done, when you are running the roads! Today, that is over as well, I am so relieved and can’t wait to get some sleep!

Loving the cool weather so much. It is really inspiring me to do some different work, just to get into the new season. It will be exciting to see, what will develop this fall. The changes of the seasons always excites me, feeling the change in weather, brings images and colors to my mind constantly. It will be fun to see the rewards. I did submit my pictures to the contest, I mentioned last week. The pictures on my post today reflect the choices I submitted. Technically the first  one s the submission, and the rest to show more of my body of work. I sent it out this morning. The good news is, that apparently they do this every four months. It is a great way to bring in fresh blood, and new styles. Plus great for the artists, it gives them some real advertisement and notoriety. Hope fully one day, I can call myself one of them!

Ready for a  nice day to rest and get my body back on track. Sick and tired of being sleepy all the time, and not getting anything done! Time to start humping! All my love to you all, maybe I will get back later with a special blog, dedicated to some one else. Oh, and when you are done, if you can, I would love feedback on which print you think should win the vote! Love always, diana!/profile.php?id=100000810145663*

Love And Calamity!

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , on September 30, 2010 by dianaswonderworks

What a week! Well, have been busy this week with many friends, all with problems with lovers. Some with husbands, others with boyfriends but all around a crazy week for love. It seems like some sent out the anti-cupid arrow and all who were struck are going through heated love battles this week. Now, it has been coming this way for a while, most of them were headed to disaster prior to this week, it is just funny how it all hit the fan this week! I feel lucky to have been missed by this arrow, because my tooth is in full flare up again, and I don’t really want anything else to fret about.

Since Monday I have been getting calls and visits from all those scorned lovers, and it has been a rough week for them. My heart goes out to all those who are suffering love’s big sting this week, or at all lately. It is very stressful and emotional, not to mention physically draining.With any luck, they will rise above it all, and find a solution to their problems. Love is a very powerful tool and like a sword it can cut both ways. It can cut in and heal and wound with deliberate and torturous pain. We must be careful how we use it.

Still working on the painting, but not enough to be done, between the advice line, I have unwittingly hooked up here at home, and the torment of this tooth. I am beyond distraction and finding it very difficult to work on the smallest of tasks right now. I bet you can guess what I would do if I had some money this week! Dentist! I don’t even like going to one, but if I could summon the cash I would be begging to go, right now! Got a coupon in the mail for Jerry’s Artorama this week, they are having a huge sale on paints, I think 70% off, which is a fabulous sale. If only I had a few dollars to rub together, this could be a great week, losing this painful tooth and gaining some much needed new paints, and art supplies!

Back to the love talk. I am more sad for the children who have to suffer while their parents duke it out, to fix the messes they are in. Been through two divorces in my life, and marriage no longer looks so romantically blissful to me. Not that I don’t think it is possible, but I am thinking the odds aren’t as good as I once thought. So, I have decided, that like craps, I am walking away from the table. I am not willing to chance another snake eyes roll! I personally think I have a better chance at winning the lottery than finding that heaven sent, dream man! My children are grown and no longer will be needing that father figure. I am also sure, they do not want to see me go through another sad break up. No one who loves you wants that for anyone! I do not want it for them! it is painful enough to watch friends go through it. The babies are the only ones who do not get a vote, there should be a camp, for kids to go to. When adults go through marital problems, or divorce, they should send their kids to camp until the fireworks are over. The shrapnel is reckless and painful. It can leave wounds for ever! So, I say lay down your weapons and work on a peace treaty, time to move forward.

Lots of love to you all, as always, love, diana!/profile.php?id=100000810145663*

Monday Virus Scare, Just In Time For Halloween!

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , on September 27, 2010 by dianaswonderworks

Well this morning I woke up to an e-mail from  a special friend notifying me I had a virus in my e-mail. I had never heard of such a thing. Apparently, my Yahoo sent out a spam notice to several people I know, if you are one of them, it is fixed! So, I wrote him back, lucky for me, he knows a lot about computers, it is his job to do so. He has the Degrees and experience to back it up. Anyway, he asked if we could check on my Yahoo mail first since that seemed to be the first thing he noticed. So we logged in to the account and he recommended that I change my password. Well, we tried several times and it would not let me change it! A huge surprise, since I have done it several times through the years and never had a problem with it. I ended up having to send an e-mail to my other mail box saying I had lost my password, so that it would prompt me to change it and I finally got it fixed.

While we were working on it, I asked him how that could have happened and he asked me if I had used a library computer at all. I replied that I had in the past, but it had been over a year since I had done so. He said that is probably how it had happened. The library computers, save all your information when you log into your sites,and some one can come along afterwords and steal that information. This was news to me, I did not know this was possible. I assumed (bad word), that the library would have some kind of a safety net in tacked to avoid such thievery. I guess not as good as I had expected. So, if you knew that, I am so happy you know better. If you did not know that, please be very careful, not to go to personal sites on a public computer. I ended up with viruses and a huge mess out of it. Lucky for me some on was looking out for me, and I am so thankful for that! The reason, I was unable to get into my account and change my password, as good as we could guess, was that the other person became alarmed that I was changing it and was trying to safeguard his or her access to that account.  Any way problem solved.

I will share with you things, obviously in hindsight, that I was noticing the last week or so. For several days last week, every time I went to check my mail, I was prompted to re-enter my password, that is highly unusual. I was going to send out an e-mail to yahoo after about 3 days of this, but it just stopped. Also, my friend did let me know that I had sent out an e-mail, spamming other friends of mine. Which I can honestly say I did not do. If you notice any strange behavior with your mail, please take the time to find out. Like I said, I found 27 viruses in my computer after this whole episode. So take care!

Off to painting again, got to finish my painting. As usual, I gave myself way too much to do yesterday, and did not complete my tasks, so today I must catch up. I still have to get picks of several works and also, start a contest of my own to choose a piece of art for the contest I would like to enter. Hoping you had a great weekend, and that today is a great start to a new week! All my love to you, as usual, diana!/profile.php?id=100000810145663*

Fall Begins

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , on September 23, 2010 by dianaswonderworks

Busy day, found out about a site that is doing an art contest. So, I have been busy deciding which picture to submit. The contest ends on the 15th of October, so I have very little time to pick one and also, get together a 500 x 500 jpeg image to submit. I am still working on the painting, lots of detail work to do. It all started with an add to my Twitter account. I added this group as a friend after being notified that they added me. When I looked up the site I discovered that they publish art contests, so needless to say I was excited. The first Tweet I saw was for this contest that ends on October 15. So, I got busy right away. I have been getting a hold of friends and family to help me decide which picture to submit. So far I have about six choices, and once I get a list together, I will be posting the pictures on my blog, and give you a chance to vote. The picture with the most votes will be the one listed.

Besides all that, been obviously a day of connecting with everyone, so lots of time on the phone. So much that two of my phones are charging right now. No more phone time for me today, I am done and my neck is too! So, finally I am able to get on here and do my blog for the day. With any luck I will be able to work on my painting for a while, but it is iffy right now. I have the burn going on in my neck and shoulders, not sure if I can lift my hand right now. Next will be some time on the heating pad and some ibuprofen, and hopefully that will do the trick.

Now as for the lottery, no such luck this week, but tomorrow I will be getting tickets for the new week and I can only hope. I have some errands to run in the morning, so not sure when I will be able to post or what will be the adventure for tomorrow, we will have to wait and see! I did check on some work again today and was supposed to get a call back for an appointment next week, no word so far. Hopefully they will call me tomorrow. The search continues, so many things happening at once, only time will tell how it all spins its tale. I am ready and waiting to see how it all works out. I am sure it will be good in the end! Sending out my love to you, as always, diana!/profile.php?id=100000810145663*

Missing Piece Of The Puzzle!

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , on August 14, 2010 by dianaswonderworks

Well, today was a hot one. Thunderstorms, came by in the afternoon, but they did last long. It helped keep the heat down, I guess, but it definitely increased the humidity. It was a no sale day, Sherry bought a couple of bracelets from me, so that helped a little, but no other costumers. Her shop did pretty good today though, so I am happy for her.

Today I came to a realization, my mind has been racing 240 directions or more lately. It seems so much is happening so fast. On the other hand it seems like nothing is moving as fast as it should be, bit of a quandary. I kept trying to piece it all together and I suddenly thought  , it feels like something is tickling at the edge of my brain and I can’t see it. Like there is a piece of the puzzle missing and it is right in front of me, and I can’t find it. Like not seeing the forest for the trees. That is a maddening feeling, I am sure if I can distract myself long enough, it will jump right in front of me. So, my mission for the evening is to keep myself distracted and hope for the answer to appear.

The main point is I need money asap, and a lot of it. With all the problems I have with my neck, back, arms and hands that is tough. On the other hand, i am over qualified to do menial work,, so I get bypassed. I feel like the answer to this is so close I can touch it, and yet it is completely invisible to me at this time. The problem is not that there are no ideas, it is more like there are thousands hitting me at once. So, one by one, I have to dig through them some are not feasible at this time due to time required or monetary investment. I have many talents, so I have to sort through it all and figure out which ones I can do, how quickly and at the lowest investment cost, but biggest return. That is how I plan to spend the rest of the weekend, doing housework, painting, crafts, and keeping a notepad close by to keep notes of everything hitting me. Researching all possibilities, and doing a realistic list of good options.

First things first, a cold bubble bath to cool off and clean off all the sweat and grime from being in the heat today. Next, get to work and see how much I can get done. Come Monday, the job search will begin, along with doing the art show. A small amount of time to do a lot of work. This is no time for me to be lackadaisical, hopefully one day that will be an option (preferably sooner than later). Wishing you and your a joyous weekend, sending you my love, as always, diana!/profile.php?id=100000810145663*

Rockin” And Poppin’ Saturday!

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , on July 31, 2010 by dianaswonderworks

Sorry I am so late getting on, been a busy, busy day! So far today I am washing my third load of laundry, working on a new drawing, in the process of making potato salad, almost done making home made hot pocket sandwiches, just finished making fresh wheat bread dough, made a loaf of home made banana bread, made steaks, potatoes, cucumber salad, hot mixed vegetables, doing a lot of dishes and talking to my daughter on the phone! Now that I am done with lunch, my only meal do far today, and have reached a minute to break, literally, I am on here to give you my little update for the day! After this and finishing the few tasks I have to wrap up, I will be back to working on my art and a nice bubble bath, and reading my Marketing On Facebook.

So, now that I have that off of my chest, hoping you all are having a great weekend so far! This week has been slow in sales, zero to be exact. I am continuing on my journey to maintain internet advertising, still a long way to go, I am sure. I really haven’t had as much time online as I would like to focus on advertising, and I am sure that hurt some, was so busy setting up some new sites. Now that the worst of the hard stuff is done, I can better balance my time again, on focusing on the push again. Like most people it is hard to find that balance sometimes, too much of one thing leaves little time for others. Hopefully after this weekend it will be back to the old grindstone for me. The drawings I have been working on this week have been tedious ones and are requiring a lot of time. In both cases days for one, considering the size, it is amazing, just lots of detail work. This wee, I think I want to switch gears on work in a different medium, sewing or crocheting, I haven’t decided yet. I just have a need to mix it up a little bit.

Nothing new on the lottery home front, still haven’t made my millions yet, but everyday is another day closer, one way or another! Wow, I am beat, no time for rest though still a lot to do, can’t sit for too long or I will not get done! I picked up some new batteries for my camera yesterday, so I will be able to load some of the bigger drawings on here, as soon as I get a minute, big smile. So, here is a funny quote from me today, a window into my silly world. Just got a new cell phone from a friend, pay as you go type of phone. My boyfriend called in to set it up, and was told he only had ten minutes on it. So when he gets off the phone he relays this message to me. My reply “When we get a minute, we will buy some!” Wish  that life were so simple. I could use a few more this week for sure. He laughed at me, I hadn’t even realized myself what I had said, I was so busy doing so many things. One day soon, I will share some more of my little sayings. I hear they are cute and funny, I just think they are my way of reflecting my own way of doing things. Guess thinking out of the box is not as common as I think it is! Love to you all today, stay safe, love, diana!/profile.php?id=100000810145663*

Etopic Pregnancy vs. Menopause And A Few Other Things!

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , on July 21, 2010 by dianaswonderworks

Well, this is a doosie! I am not even sure how to begin. Assuming we are all grown ups here, I AM Late! I was due my normal cycle at eh 3rd or 4th week of June and it did not happen. Now, here’s the deal, I am forty-seven and I have no tubes. Several years ago, two years in a row I had tubal pregnancies. So, logically that would mean menopause, right? Since I have never been through menopause, I can’t be sure of the symptoms. Of course, I have read some things about it and seen a program or more on shows like Oprah, Good Morning America, and The View, or some other shows. Needless to say, I am not completely ignorant. My symptoms, seem to be more like pregnancy ones however. Yet, I was told years ago, that it was highly unlikely and virtually impossible! Hence my confusion, if you have followed me at all, you would know that I am unemployed on top of all that. No insurance, no husband, and trying with all my might to get my art career going with no money to start it with. Just lots of good old fashioned hard work, reading, learning etc… I am trying to keep panic at  bay, trying to be rational, and once again trying to do some research online. I Got Nothin’, just a joke. Most of the sites on the internet, tell you pregnancy is not possible without IVF( Invitro-Fertilization). Anyway, spell check is now dogging me, sorry if the spelling is off, so is my mind right now, please forgive me.

This brings another thought to mind. So many people are able to find out all kinds of things online, and yet every time I look, I get nothing. Obviously nothing is extreme, it seems to be less than, versus more than. Obviously there is some kind of a knack to internet research, that up until now I am lacking. If there is any advice, comments or in general hope you can or wish to offer,I will welcome it. My mind is exhausted and reeling all at the same time. A distraction would do me good, or conversation or interaction of any sort.

Lottery checked last night, no winner ( boy could I use the money now!!!)!But there is always tonight, we shall see. Haven’t worked on any art, been very sleepy and trying to read up on the Facebook phenom. I will do some work today, not sure what form it will take, my right hand is still swelling from all the drawing this weekend, with the Bull Dog pictures. But as promised, I will post all three and let you judge for me which one should be submitted for the calender or now they are talking a book for charity. Would love to know what your thoughts on any of these topics are. Hope your hump day is a hum dinger, full of silliness today, sorry about that. Just trying to stay sane and happy, in this crazy minute of my life! As always, love from me to you, diana
