Wicked Night

And thanks for looking!


Planting the C. E. A. D. (Copyright Education Awareness & Development) Respecting artist's rights. I am a copyright compliant tagger. All tags created within my journal comply with the artist's Terms of Use (TOU). Within the tagging community a war is brewing between taggers and artists, due entirely to the lack of respect for artists work; everyday the list of free to use artists grows shorter and shorter as more artists move to protect their livelyhood from illegal and sometimes improper use. I understand how easy it is to be unaware of this issue as I used to post any and all graphics to my journal without a care or any thought about the word copyright. I have since changed my ways. It is my heartfelt desire to be a part of the solution and not part of the problem. When creating a tag, I ask myself one making this tag and displaying it in public, am I infringing on the rights of another person? If the answer is yes, and even if I'm not 100% sure, I don't create the tag.

In the spirit of copyright awareness and cooperation, please remember having the ability to include tags in our journals can be fun, but it comes with responsibility. We all know it only takes one person to ruin the fun for everybody else. Spoiler alert...there are copyright violation patrols on the net. Have a care and be aware.

Nurturing mind body & spirit

Boy what a week this has been! Definitely one for the memory book, in many ways. I created the tag above last week when I found the tutorial; it was one of those tuts that immediately inspired me and I knew I had to create one. And now with the fires going on in my former home of S. California, this tag has another message.

If you'd like me to create this tag for you, place your request in a comment below. Name change only. Offer open until I say so. Thanks for looking! 

This morning on the news they announced about 500 thousand people have been evacuated from their homes in Southern California...unbelievable. On a local news station in Spokane this morning they said that the evacuation is the largest non-military movement ever; the last event that affected so many people was the Civil War. So many people being affected, it's mind numbing.

For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. I recently found an amazing place on the web, called The Daily OM. It's my kind of place and since I discovered it, I've found myself visiting The Daily OM every morning. It puts me in an excellent frame of mind everytime. I like their message and found immediate affinity in the words and images. Check it out ---->The Daily OM<---

Tag Offer #14 - Breast Cancer Awareness

  1Tag Offer #14 (Who Wants One) - Breast Cancer Awareness

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month so I'm making this offer a bit different. Rather than one tag featuring the work of one artist, I made several tags featuring different artists...because we all are different...yet the same.   To request your tag: Above each tag is a number, 1 through 5; when requesting please indicate whether you want tag #1, or #2, or #3...and so forth.   Limit one tag per name.   Offer expires Wednesday, October 17 at 9 p.m.
Sam and I are heading to the cabin this weekend, so I'll start creating the tags when we return on Sunday. Thanks for looking!!


Sorry...offer closed.


Sooooo, I've been back to the farm to see and ride those beautiful Morgans again!! :) Spent the day there a couple of weekends ago, and, this Saturday I'm going back.  Can't wait!!!! This could become a regular habit and I have no problem with that. In fact, I am giving some serious thought to the idea of making my childhood dream come true...the dream of having a horse of my own (finally!!!).  There are a lot of details to work out in advance, and I have my eye on two beautiful, well-trained Morgan mares. Truth be told, this is a dream I abandoned long ago with the notion that perhaps when I was older the time and opportunity would better suit my life. And when I least expected it, the time came, and the opportunity has presented itself. I feel so alive, energized with this posibility. I'm smiling again; just being in the company of horses feeds my soul endlessly with hope and renewal, diminishing the stress and strains of my work life. And for that I am grateful.   I've also mastered digi-scrapping and created several layouts with photos from my last visit.




Life, like a roller coaster, has its ups and downs, its twists and turns, but riding over the top of life's highest thrills and hanging on through it's darkest tunnels offers the greatest ride of all.  ~Unknown
