Mixed Media Collage

This weeks List it Tuesday theme was "What's in your junk drawer?" Oh the list is infinite... I have numerous junk drawers in my house, each like Mary Poppin's bag... Seemingly endless. I have a confession to make, or rather a truth to state! Mr. Krazy and I are not a tidy pair. Household chores often get set aside for more important tasks, such as drawing, journaling, wood turning, or spending time with the kids. Although, a majority of household tasks fall upon me, I've long since given up trying to maintain a spotless house. Daunting when your mother is a manic housekeeper a la June Cleaver. (In fairness, my dad does most if not all cooking). I refuse to Iron, and dust... Please.... I have to check my Facebook page! Every so often I get hell bent on trying to change the tide, instituting everything from 15 minute family tidy time, to a mom picked it up box, now you've lost it do a chore.... Blah blah blah.. I once left a piece of paper on the floor to see if anyone else would pick it up.... Two months later, I sighed and threw it in the garbage. That's not to say my kids don't have responsibilities and chores, because they do, I just don't nag about it. However, if they wants friends over, their room needs to be livable before and after the visit. I guess that's what our house is... Livable... Lived in, comfortable.... I wouldn't have it any other way... But I wouldn't say no to a maid service either!

I spy with my little eye ....

Stay safe, and Love yourself,

Small Comfort....

Last weeks List Been there Done that!

*** Warning*** This is not a light happy post.

I've been away from my blog for a couple of weeks now.  Not that it impacts anyone greatly, but I have missed it.   As some might know, I started this blog as a form of self therapy, a way to get me through the long winter days when depression often creeps up on me. The past two weeks have been, in a word difficult.  This past weekend, saw my son and I in two, yes TWO, car accidents.  We are both okay, no injuries, and the accidents were not severe.  Well, my car is off to the junk yard, as it's too costly to fix and its' over 10 years old, and my husbands car has superficial body damage, but driveable.  Neither accidents were my fault, but I felt as though the universe was trying to send me a message.  I could only laugh after the second accident.  The gentleman who hit me must have thought I was Krazy.  (If only he knew!)   Still the finacial burden of having to replace a car at the holiday season is stressful.  I am very grateful to be okay, to be alive, and unscathed, so that's a small comfort.  However, if you have read my previous blog post, you are aware that my friend Ryan was murdered over a custody disagreement.  As the case goes to trial, I'm constantly thinking of Ryan, his family and what his final hours must have been like.   I've been questioning humanity, and wondering the age old question of why?  What makes a human being capable of taking the life of another human being.  What right is given to any individual to play judge, jury and executioner.  Why my friend, my funny, sweet, caring friend?  Just why?  So when  I think of this weeks list of small comforts over at Artsyville, I cannot help but think bitterly that sometimes small comforts are not enough.  It's a small comfort that Ryan was found and can now be put to rest, it's a small comfort that the police have arrested his murderers and have them in custody, it's a small comfort knowing that a trust fund is in place for his daughter, it's a small comfort that some questions will now be answered.  But at what price?  All the comfort in the world cannot bring Ryan back, cannot give a family back their son, brother, father.  Comfort will not lessen the pain of knowing that three cruel individuals lured, kidnapped and killed a man because he wanted to be a part of his daughters life.  Sometimes life just plain old sucks.  

Anyway, I didn't do a list this week, but last weeks list is above.   I hope to be back on track next week.  Until then, here is some of my most recent art and atc's.

Stay Safe, and Love Yourself,
