HELLO my Tuesday FRIENDS!!!
Decided I would make a real effort to get this done on time today so here we go :)
It's been colder and windier here the past two days so it was
HOT CHOCOLATE WEATHER AGAIN!
I've consumed a few too many lately and will have to cut back to something with a wee bit fewer calories. The waistline seems to expand so much more easily these days.
The card in the photo is not complete... I want to add words but haven't come up with the right ones yet... kind of leaning towards these....
I finished last weeks painting from the
Mindy Lacefield class too.
I really feel I achieved a much looser style with this one and really love it.
Here are some close ups of some of the details.
I'm calling this one
" SAILING the RED STORM"
Exactly what my country is going through right now. :'(
But I do continue to HOPE that many will see the light soon and remind myself that we must stand strong in the light and allow it to grow before it will be seen.
Now for Today's Random Thoughts
PLUS a little tidbit of info I ran across a couple of weeks ago that has made me think a lot....
In the USA we use 500 million disposable plastic straws a day!
Here's a paragraph from the article ...
Americans use 500 million drinking straws every day. To understand just how many straws 500 million really is, this would fill over 125 school buses with straws every day. That's 46,400 school buses every year! Americans use these disposable utensils at an average rate of 1.6 straws per person per day.
Got ya thinking?
Google it and read more if it did.
Now though you need to run on over to
Elizabeth's and join the party...
