Artsy Fartsy Friday~~~Painting 3D Turtle in Resins~ Artist Gerardo Chierchia

                                                     Hi All!
                                                           Today is Friday and that could only mean that some art is on it's way! A while back I posted art from an Artist named Riusuke Fukahori. He painted on resin and made his subject look three dimensional. If you'd like to take a little peek-a-loo...here is the link.
Goldfish Salvation. He is Awesome!
Well, I found another artist that creates art using resin and his art is incredible too. His name is Gerardo Chierchia. Here is a video that follows his process...amazing! Please enjoy

The Blame Game

            Hi All!

                     Today I wanted to write about "The Blame Game"...or otherwise known at our house as...Lets blame Mom/or the Wife for every stinkin' thing that happens in our home. Now when I say everything, I mean only the bad things.

If something is lost it's because I "Hid" it somewhere...Bwahahahaha
                                          Ace Ventura sneaking 

If something is broken...everyone looks at me, because even though they may have done it....the item was too delicate...and it's my fault for bringing it into a home full of klutzes...etc.
                                               Clumsy Big Bird  

If a tool from my husband's tool box is missing ...well, heck I must have used it and hid it ....in another part of his tool box! 
                                               Image result for giant hammer

and if an important piece of mail is gone from the Mount Everest pile that my husband has....well, damn-it-all if I didn't take it and throw it out.


             But not really.

If something is lost, then it's probably where it SHOULD be and not on the freakin' floor where my family left it.

If a Tool is missing it's probably in the tool box to the right or immediate left of where it usually is...in other words hidden in plain sight

And If my husband is missing an important piece of mail It's probably because I moved it to the office and filed it under "IMPORTANT MAIL".

Anyhoo, recently I went down to the laundry room and tried to turn on the light and it wouldn't work. I even tried to replace the light bulb and...no go.

I called down the Hubster

                        Me: "Light doesn't work, I think the switch is broken."

                        Hubster: "What'd you do to it?"

                        Me: "Nothing, It's just broken."

                        Hubster: "Things just don't break Joanne. SOMEONE had to break it."

                        Me: "Well, I didn't break it"

                        Hubster: "Well, I certainly didn't break it...I'm never down here."

Right, please remind ME again that I'm the ONLY one that does stinkin' laundry

                        Me: "Look, can you fix it? because I really don't want to play the Blame game right now"

                        Hubster: "Blame Game?" I'm just saying that you are the only one that comes down here and you probably broke it that's all."

                         Me: "You're starting to annoy me."
So the Hubster goes upstairs and I'm guessing he's going to go out to buy a new switch. I grabbed what clothes I could so I could fold some upstairs.
I walk past the kitchen where my husband is sweeping up a mess. Upon closer inspection I see that it's a glass that he's accidently broken.

               Me: "Hmmmm whatcha got there? Did YOU break a GLASS?!?"

               Hubster:  "Yes, I broke a glass."

 Now Ordinarily I never gloat, but darn if it didn't feel good to yell....

                                "YES!!! KARMA!!!"

                       He's lucky he is cute.

Artsy Fartsy Friday~~The Art of Patty Cake~~ Send My Love-Adele- Patty Cake Cover

                   Years ago I taught my niece some patty cake songs and every now and then she asks to play. I remember in school my friends and I would play with four girls and there we were hands up and under clapping side to side, perfectly timed and singing a memorized song. Miss Mary Mack doesn't compare to what I found for you!

Recently I came across a song by Adele covered by KHS, Sam Tsui, Madilyn Bailey, Alex G and they did it to a hand clapping routine...amazing! I think they are awesome!

 Please enjoy this week's Artsy Fartsy post...

                    Yep, I'm one of those people.

                                          I don't like to ask for ...
                                                            Image result for help

               I just don't

                                and that's bad...very bad

                                But I LOVE to help others
                                Image result for helping others

                                                and that's good... very good.

Soooooo what happens to the person that likes to help and never asks for help?

People think that you never need help...that's what.

               They think that you have it all figured out

                                         I sure don't

                  They think nothing fazes you
                                 Image result for crying over nothing

                  They're WRONG WAHHHHHHHHH!


             They think I'm super organized because I help them with their messes

                I need lists to remind me of other lists...and those lists are under                               tons of lists that I have ignored for months

I always think that problems of others (even if they are the same as mine) are bigger and more in need of attention...but as my Sister-in-Law always says....

" A pebble in a shoe is a pebble in a shoe" Which means dear bloggy buddy, that everyone has problems and some might seem bigger but even the seemingly small ones bother and hurt.

Recently, I have decided to lay it all out there... and ask for help when I need it.

Ya know what happened when I tried to open my mouth? Another person opened theirs first....and lets just say that I will keep that pebble in my shoe a little while longer, while I go and help my friend with their boulder.
