Snow For Christmas!

Well, today was a wonder to behold. Here in New Hampshire we woke up to snow! Not that the weather wasn’t predicted,  but strange when you consider the weather yesterday. All day yesterday, it was like spring outside. The sun was out, bright and clear, the temperatures were mild. It really reminded me of the weather when I first arrived here in Late March. A light jacket is all you needed to enjoy the day. Then Some time over night the temperature dropped and so did the snow. Already with daylight, and the sun shining in the sky, the snow is starting to melt. But, the vision of that beautiful snow, unmarred by people, first thing in the morning, brings a smile to my face. Already it is feeling more like Christmas!

Okay, so now some quick updates, I am sure you are aware that I am an artist. If not, you will be familiar with that idea now. So,, for those of you who do follow me and my art, I do have a new painting to share with you. This is a painting I finished about a month ago. Maybe two now, just before I moved to my new address, it is a giraffe, felt in the mood to see Africa, SO, I decided to create a little of it for myself. If you are interested in any way to purchase it, or to see the prices, please follow the links enclosed to go to one of my shops or Facebook to contact me. I will be sharing a couple more in the next couple of days, as well as some photos of a few more hiking pictures, to help those of you not familiar with New Hampshire to see the beauty surrounding us here! Hope you enjoy them all.

It seems, one prayer of mine has been answered and I will be driving a new car. Not new, as in off the showroom floor, but new as in, new to me. This is a great relief off of my mind for sure. So, Merry Christmas to me, and to the givers of this wonderful gift, and to you as well and those you love. I hope you  are having a wonderful Holiday Season, no matter, what holiday you celebrate, if any. No matter, wishing you lots of happiness, and blessings of every kind.

Now, also a quick update on the lottery horizon. Just to say, that my dream of winning the lottery this year, hes not come to pass, just yet. I am confident that one day soon, the message on here will be a joyous one. I can’t wait! Sending you lots of love, for yourself and all those you care about. Wishing you end this year with a smile and a life full. Full of blessings, love, joy, peace and happiness for all! Enough for today, and see you soon, diana!/profile.php?id=100000810145663*


First Snow And Sale!

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , on November 6, 2010 by dianaswonderworks

Today was full of excitement and unexpected things. For starters, not long after I arrived at the gallery today, it started snowing! Beautiful, it was so relaxing and enjoyable to watch it fall to the ground. Being this time of year, it promptly melted. For me, it made my day, and really made me feel like the holiday s are coming swiftly. The weather forecast, the one I saw yesterday morning said the rain would pass through by noon. A little off, I am thinking, it definitely was not rain, and it lasted on and off all day long. A big surprise for everyone I talked to today.

Today I also had the opportunity to make my first sale on my own art. I will post the painting I sold. It was really funny. It was three people, two women and one man. I introduced myself, as I always do, and sent them off to enjoy the artwork. They stopped feet from me in front of the wood paintings I did and went crazy over the two sea turtle paintings I had done. One of the women turns to me and says “Funny, I just mentioned to him, when we were coming in that I wanted to find something with a sea turtle on it and here it is!” She was so excited, they asked me if I could sign it for them to her son. Which I said I would, and she asked me to enclose a business card for him and also give her one too, for future reference! I was so very happy! I have made barely any sales all week, so no money for me, and today I sold one of my own. Not a big priced item, but cash in my pocket none the less. It was a good day. I have to take the sea turtle off the storefronts tonight.

Lots to do, I have to make some more artwork for the gallery, even though I don”t have the money to frame anything or matte it. But, at least it will be ready when I have the money to do it. So, I have to get busy. I did not win the lottery last night, so I am keeping my fingers crossed for tonight! Maybe, my luck will carry through all evening.I took my vitamins and B-12 complex and some coffee to wake up. I was so beat when I came home, I needed to boost up. Now that the energy is picking up, it is time to get some things accomplished.Take care, and have a wonderful weekend, I will keep you updated on anything new or interesting that pops up, love always, diana!/profile.php?id=100000810145663*

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*

Fall Showers Bring Winter Flowers!

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , on September 26, 2010 by dianaswonderworks

It is Sunday and the rain clouds have been hanging over us all day. No crazy storms, just a nice cloudy day with intermittent showers. Keeping it cooler than it has been for a while. The rain always brings news of summer flowers in the spring. In the fall it is the announcement of those pretty winter flowers we call snow flakes! I have always loved the snow, the snowflakes have a unique beauty, nothing else compares. It has so many uses and so many fun ways to play in it. Not a huge fan of the cold, but I make allowances for the beauty it brings. It reminds me of the warmth that winter brings, all those great holidays we all enjoy. Even in the coldest weather our hearts fill with the warmth of being with the ones we love on those special holidays. For me, being of European descent it is Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years. I know that New Years is celebrated by many other cultures, but on different dates, depending on the part of the world you live in. And even if you have a different nationality there are so many holidays to choose from at this time of the year. People seem to get more light hearted, and good natured at this point in the year. It seems the cold weather on the outside brings with it a warming on the inside. A very good side effect, at least that is what I think. I also think, it would not hurt to keep that part of our natures alive all through the year! What a happy world it would be.

I spent the day doing shopping and cooking today, still have more I would like to do. I am hoping to squeeze in some  fresh baked banana bread later this evening. I am also looking forward to finishing my painting, and starting on something new  tomorrow. The cherry on top will be reading my Steven King novel, I purchased a couple of weeks ago, in a nice hot bubble bath! I am definitely in the mood for some good old fashioned relaxation tonight. The pot roast I made turned out great and some home made mashed potatoes to go with it, and of course some nice vegetables cooked in with the roast. Nice hearty winter kind of meal, it was a nice break from all the summer light meals I am used to. I am sure it will be warm again tomorrow, but I am thrilled with the respite we had today.

I also, read a book a friend of mine wrote today, it took a few hours, but I finished I am sure she will be happy to know I finally got around to that! It was good, reminded me a lot of Dean Koontz, but from a girls point of view. It was a good crime, fiction novelette. Also, one of my findings today was on eHow. I was looking for information on how to build a website, and found a link for building one with a WordPress blog. I have not read it all the way through yet, I do need some money to get a domain name with and to set up an account with some one to handle the site. Or something of that nature, see told you I did not read it all, but it sounded like  a good option for me to try. Hopefully, money will find me some time soon and I can get busy on that as well! Since I am still broke, I am sure you have guessed that I did not win the lottery this weekend, but hey I haven’t given up! So wish me luck, oh and if you know anything about setting up to do a charity I would be happy to hear from you. All my love as always, diana!/profile.php?id=100000810145663*
