JET YEAR 1A few years ago Mike & I were lucky enough to raise a newborn fawn to adulthood and have him assimilate into the wild - now we have a herd of about 14-40 depending on the time of year, but this is how it began... Sorry about the pictures - most were cell phone pictures that degraded when my external drive crashed but I saved what I could.
Early in the morning on Sunday, May 4, my husband was on his way to work when he came back and woke me up. Cradled in his arms was a newborn fawn! Its mother had been hit by a car, and Mike had found this little guy in the ditch on the side of he road, still covered in the uterine fluids.
As it was obviously an orphan and too young to take care of itself, Mike gathered it up and brought it home. It was either that or leave it to die. My husband just couldn't do it... so he was a wee bit late to work...
When the fawn came home, it was too weak to raise its little head. It just lay curled in a blanket - a nest to keep it warm.
It was so tiny! I'd ne
Time to Come Home...It's been a while now. A long, long while - nearly a year since I've been here, and I miss my refuge. Heck, I'm not eve sure If I remember how to open Photoshop anymore.
My Priority for the past several months was taking care of my mom-in-law and keeping the peace among her children. It's been a long, slow painful process for all of us, and healing has been mixed.
My art may suck, my brain may no longer work but at least I'm ready to start again...
The ShipWhat is dying?
A ship sails and I stand watching
till she fades on the horizon,
and someone at my side
says, "She is gone".
Gone where? Gone from my sight,
that is all; she is just as
large as when I saw her...
the diminished size and total
loss of sight is in me, not in her,
and just at the moment
when someone at my side
says "she is gone", there are others
who are watching her coming,
and other voices take up the glad shout,
"there she comes!" ...and that is dying.

Thank YouThank you all for your prayers and understanding. My sister and I lost our mom very suddenly 14 years ago and my father died four years ago - also very unexpectedly and i a very traumatic way for me.
My mother-in-law, who is just "mom" to me (and to my sister) has been my surrogate mother and my friend. A woman for whom I have had immense respect and love. I have been blessed with a wonderful husband and two sisters-in-law who treat me as just another sister but if this is killing me I know it's beyond devastating for them. I'm trying to stay strong for all of them, especially Mike (my husband) but I'm so ashamed of myself tonight - I actually broke down and raised my voice at the night nurse. I pulled her aside and apologized profusely - she was so sweet about it - but I'm just not like that.
Rambling. I'm rambling, so it's time to go.
My husband helped me pack two orders tonight and he HATES tedious things and has absolutely NO clue when it comes to frit colors so he was bent o
Gone for a bitOr at least in and out for awhile. Not quite sure yet....
Something's come up that is more important to me than my work, art, glass business... I need to take time... spend it with her... watch over her. She's so fragile - frail - and means the world to me. Rambling, I know. Sorry, I guess.
I'll be in and out - the art - this art - is where I go to stay sane sometimes. The colors, the ability here to take reality and dump it on its ear. Turn things upside down and shake them up so they make more sense... a bit.
Time to go - need a shower and more coffee -
Learning as I GoSo... I decided to get off of my bum and actually start trying out a few tutorials now that I've been trying to play with Photoshop for about a year now. I know, I know - it's about time!
My first tutorial was step-by-step, resulting in "Fireproof," so I thought that I'd see what I could apply from that to the flying monkeys in my brain and came up with "29 Days." The feedback has been incredible and unexpected - thank you!
Now to practice & play a little more (before MsgtBob points out the lack of drop-shadows ) and then it'll be time to pick another!
The next problem - how to balance work, school & playtime?

Home IntruderHi guys...
I know long time, no here, but I just took & passed my credentialling examination so I should have a little more time for the creative side of life. Now for the meat of the matter...
I woke up just before 0300 to hear my dogs barking like nuts so seeing as how we have deer & occasionally *very* large cats I got up to check to see what the problem was.
I checked the back door - nothing. As I was passing the kitchen on my way t the front door I saw someone standing in my kitchen. I said "Oh! You startled me! Stay very still and the dogs won't bite you."
It looked to be a young woman, not to alert. I put the dogs out back & snagged a 9mm as I did, just in case.
I went back to the kitchen and asked very quietly if I could get her some water. She said OK and that she was a friend of 'Daniel." I finally got her name & she told me that she was 18. She smelld of alcohol and was not alert to time or place. She had no idea where she was or how she got there.
My best fr
Delinquent DeviantYes, yes - I know: Where the heck have I been???
I decided that as well as starting an awesome job I'd go back to school of sorts. I have one medical coding certification - now I'm studying for two more with plans for two more after I sit for these exams. It feels good to be back in class, even if they are self-study.
The drawback? not much time for art these days but I do think of you guys frequently and hope that you are well.
Will check back in soon!
