When the Going Gets Tough...Turn the "Otter" Cheek?!

It's been a yucky, sucky, icky, crappy week. Last week with my being sick (sans my poor loss of Pearl) was better than the week I've been having. I'm trying to stand back and not let myself get overemotional about what to do, what to do, what to do. I'm going to just mull and stir it around for a while, but I'm definitely in a much better place at this very moment. Sometimes you just have to tell yourself that it will all work out, take a chill pill.

I was going through my pics, and this one I took of an otter at the Monterey Bay Aquarium (one of my all time favorite places) just makes me smile and sit back and contemplate the good things...my friends, my family (Yay, my niece Alex...first two Field Hockey Games of the year and she's already scored 4 goals!), a roof over my head, lots of artsy things to do.

In the meantime, I'm going to be teaching on Saturday, and I think I'll go and finish up the sample. Simple is what I'm going for, but effective. Show some fun ways to work with the new Tim Holtz(tm) Distress Crackle Paint(tm) by Ranger. When I get it finished I'll post it.

Finally, my pal Miss Margot was talking about stats...she's got me going on them, and I was so thrilled to see I got a bunch of hits today...when I checked, lo and behold, it was from my buddy Donna Downey...it turns out that she's from my neck of the woods, so we're both "Jersey Shore Babes". I made for her a special soldered sign with her name and "moniker" Inspired...she loved it and I was so happy that it got to her unbroken!

It's almost Friday, my friends, enjoy! I've got something fun planned for next week on this bloggie thing...all technique all the time!

Drink lots, it enhances the "chill pill" effect!

I love "turn the 'otter' cheek" -- it made me laugh and laugh It reminded me of all the times I'd go to Hallmark (before rubber stamping that is) and laugh and laugh at the Shoebox greeting cards. My husband never could never figure out why I found them so funny.

Here's to a better week!
