A Major French Award!

Merci beaucoup, Gail and Queen Pennythistle! This is magnifique :D  

Savior faire IS everywhere.

Tell Queen "P" that after seeing her spectacle - I mean spectacular photos, I've been inspired to create something with a French flair. I was already working on a piece from a French fairy tale, but now I'll have to create something that plays up the French decadence a bit more - although I believe she's got the market cornered on it ;)

We MUST follow these rules so Queen "P" doesn't throw a royal hissy fit!  PLEASE!

1. Add the logo/button to your blog
2. Link to the person from whom you received the award
3. Nominate 7 or more blogs
4. Put the links to those blogs on your blog
5. Leave a message on their blog letting them know the honor has been bestowed upon them

Now onto my search for uncommon commoners.  
::::::::::hopping in my pumpkin carriage ;) and heading to Blogsville::::::::::

Whew - I'm back!  It seems there are a lot of uncommon commoners in Blogsville.  Many of them had already been given the "Major French Award", but I did manage to find 9 culprits for the Queen's pleasure.

Uncommon Commoners I have bestowed the "Major French Award" upon:

Now I really must get packing.  I will be gone for the next 5 days and won't have access to a computer, so I'll see you all next week. Have a happy Thanksgiving to those of you that celebrate it. Gobble gobble gobble!

Much to be thankful for,

Exciting News

Lisa Gatz of "That Creative Place"  (cute name huh?!) has asked me to join her team of artists to teach classes. Her wonderful site is devoted to the inspiration, encouragement and development of artists.  She's got a positive energy about her that is absolutely contagious. You'll find an impressive variety of talented artists offering classes there.  As an artist you owe it to yourself to explore "That Creative Place".  The classes are fun (yes, I've taken a few), you'll meet and share with fellow artists from all over the planet and learn from some pretty impressive instructors.  Keep your eyes and ears open for updates.

Wish me luck!

Follow your dreams,

Follow Me to the Twilight Realm

I'd like to invite ALL you adventurous souls to a realm I enjoy playing in when I'm not here. You'll have to relax in my daydream catcher for a spell or two.  I know, I  know - it's hard to relax when you're so excited, but try.  It's the only way to get to this particular magical realm filled with peculiar creatures. I'm still having trouble rounding them all up after having let them loose in this realm :( It WAS an accident!  So if you find any stragglers please escort them back to the Twilight Realm when you visit. I know some of them look sweet, but they're capable of things you can't even begin to imagine.  Hope to see you there ;D

Follow your nightmares too,

HaPpY HaLlOWeEN! (Belated)

Trick or treat?  You decide.

I was shaking out some of the cobwebs in my head, when I discovered these little dears and their mum.  Please allow me to introduce to you the grieving widow, Venomessa Webber and her children.  There were 13 at last count,but the little buggers won't stop devouring each other.


*WARNING:  The following is not intended for children.*

A Black Widow's Fear 

One night Mother Webber tucked her little kiddies into bed.

"Please tell us a spooky story," they’d pled.

Oh darlings, not just before bed.

How 'bout I tell you about your daddy instead?

"Oh yes - we love that story," they all said.

With the exception of Junior, who frantically nodded his head.

Well all right.  As you know; it was the night that we had wed.

Your daddy had gone out to pick up some bread. 

Being customary for a groom to keep his wife well fed.

The next morning is when your daddy was found - DEAD!

Mysteriously caught in our web without any bread the detective had said.

Now Mommy’s a widow ::sigh:: mourning forever with eyes eternally red. 

You'll all inherit the family curse just as soon as you've bred.

But your poor little brother won’t be so lucky I dread.

Sure he’ll roll in the hay, but he won’t make it past his wedding day.

Poor Junior couldn’t sleep a wink that night; horrified at what his mommy had to say.

"I refuse to be a victim of foul play!"

"I’ll never take a bride - no way!"

"Let some other sucker be a female’s prey!" 

After much thought, he concluded his only option was to turn gay.

So he stayed up all night practicing his sashay.
