Google Autofill Hilarity

It seems that most people google some strange-ass shit including a lot stereotypical questions and down right racist crap. At first I thought this was both sad and funny, a little peek into our collective minds-eye. I then realized that it's just that there are a lot of ignorant people using google to (hopefully) become less ignorant.
Why do jews... have glassy eyes?
p.s you can and will do this for a whole day/

The Government - Andy Paterson

I had the pleasure of running into Mr. Andy Paterson at the Cameron House yesterday. Andy is quite a prolific artist and a fountain of knowledge of Canadian art & music. Andy was the lead singer and principal writer for a band called The Government, between 1977 and 1982. I was happy to find out that he has a new website : http://andrewjamespaterson.com & that 22 Government tracks can be found HERE.

Here is a clip of Run with the Kittens performing 'Zippers of Fire' live at the Cameron House with the legendary Andy Paterson.

I'm having some FUN.....

Two days in a row now I've got to play with paper and get my Pinky's Inkie!!!! I had 2 more swaps I needed to work on and complete for my group ARTHaven, Creations & Friendships
This first one I'm sharing is for the ATC Swap - Lady theme......I wanted to do something vintagy so I thought.......Why not do a picture that is very special to me.....So I did.....This is actually MY Grandmother & Grandfather's wedding picture!!!! Aren't they a good looking couple.....And they shared almost 50 years together!!! They both went to heaven several years ago but they were both SO precious to me!!!! To me they were always Mimi & Papa!!! There were none better on this planet!!!! I miss them terribly!!!
To create this I printed off their image onto some Water Color paper with my Color Laser printer....I really like the rustic vintagy worn look that it came out with....I then adheared it to a thick cardboard base....I wiped the edges of the ATC with Vintage Photo and Walnut Stain Tim Holtz distress inkpads.....I added some gold dots the decorative ribbon, flower and the took a piece of scratch water color paper and wrote the words True Love stippled with some Walnut Stain Tim Holtz disress inkpad and then glued to the surface and added the gold dots....

I'm absolutely thrilled with how this turned out and can't wait for it's recipient to recieve it....I do so hope she'll be able to feel the love I put into this ATC!!!

Now my next piece of art is for the Playing Card Swap - Joker.......LOL, yes I'm hosting a monthly swap where we will in time complete an entire deck of cards!!! Doesn't that sound like fun......no 2 cards will be close because we'll have different people we send to each month....that way when we're complete we'll have a 1 of a kind deck of cards that no one else will have!!!

So, this is my creation for the Joker.......Isn't it fun looking!!!! It was alot of fun to create......I printed my fairy off with my Laser color printer and cut it out .......I then modge podged it to my base which is actually a hot pocket box that I sanded the paint off the surface then wiped it with some Tim Holtz Distress ink then coated with some Tim Holtz distress crackle paint in Vintage Photo.......once dried I spritzed with some yellow pearl ex spritzer dried with my heat gun then applied my fairy and the words Joker that I cut with my cricut.......Oh yeah, before I applied the Joker words and the fairy I used my Stazon black ink and rubberstamped the swirleys on the background.......

This definately isn't my usual style but it was a fun card to make and the recipient it's going to I really think will like it!!! I'm hoping so anyway!!!!


Ok.....Now my attention is going back towards my creation of some more SVG files and the design of some more Journals for the cancer project my friend Shirley Nagel is working on.....I will be posting more in the next day or so.....so I do hope you will check back with me!!! I SO appreciate you allowing me to share my creations with you...I hope you enjoy them.....I as always, want to THANK YOU for stopping by to visit with me!!! I hope you all have a very blessed Thursday!!!! Please come again, until next time!!!!!

So this is MY first creation.....Isn't it FUN looking??? I designed and created the SVG file for this House.....IF you like it you may feel free to download the file on MY SVG PAGE

Another Swap Complete....

I'm on a roll today!!! I completed another swap I'm signed up for in my group ARTHaven, Creations & Friendships this one was for a Tag swap........I wanted to do something different so I created this tag file in Inkscape and cut with my cricut.....IF you like this file you may download it from My SVG Page .........I had fun creating this and hope the recipient enjoys it!!!!!





I, as always, want to THANK YOU for stopping by to visit with me again.....I hope you enjoy this tag and perhaps will enjoy the file....I do hope you will come by and visit again!!! I hope you have a very blessed evening....Until next time.....

I'm been playing with Paper!!!!

Last night and this morning and it feels SO good to get my "pinkies inky" as my friend Gloria says!!!! LOVE that phrase!!! So this is a window trellis file I created based on an idea by Tina Britton and did a bit different to her original idea as I did my layers individually to give the card more depth and the thought you can do as I've done and use different colors.......I designed, drew and created all of this in Inkscape then of course cut with my Cricut Expression....If you like this design file you can download it on My SVG Page by clicking on MY SVG Page........just so you know I've also uploaded several more creations I've made in the past couple of weeks........

In the design and decoration of this card I used several techniques.......Tim Holtz products have been used ALOT!!! LOL...I love all things Tim!!!!! I used distress inks, distress embossing powders, cuttlebug embossing sleeves, I also designed the leaves you see and cut with my cricut ALSO on My SVG Page



The image on the inside of the card is one of the Thomas Kinkade images I have.....LOVE his artwork!!!! I printed it on watercolor paper with my color laser printer. I also used my box envelope template I created months ago, which is also somewhere on MY SVG Page I just resized it to fit the size card I made and cut......works like a charm!!!!

I would like to share with you I am offering these files for free......However, I am contemplating converting my files for use of all formats of cutters....IF I do that I will begin charging a fee for the files due to the extent of time and work that will be put in them over and above the work I've already done!!! It truly means SO much to me that you find some files you might enjoy......and I hope I'm not upsetting anyone with my thoughts of doing this.......I'm just trying to offer these to any format needed and with the time involved feel this is something I would need to do......

I DO hope you will come by and visit with me again!!!!! I'm always truly touched when you leave me a comment!!!!

Break Up Season


As the end end of summer soon approaches I notice that also signals the end of many relationships. People are breaking up every where you turn. Maybe you are currently going through a break up or your partner is secretly thinking that it's time for him or her to move on. What ever the case nothing can help heal your heart and soul like a soprano saxophone. Saxophones are usually made of brass and are played with a single-reed mouthpiece similar to that of the clarinet.

Like a good friend helping you through tough times here is my song for you titled "I Need You"

slap-pop breast cancer exam

I bought a bass guitar a few weeks ago but after seeing this video I feel weird playing it. I can't even begin to understand what's going on here. The cutaways.. the black unitard feel up breast / ovarian cancer self examination, the scrunchie on the wrist, the milk, the boat.. the slap pop. Too much awesome for 1 video.

Battle of champions

Both Chuck Norris & Gary Busey have done lots of amazing things but this is a really unique & retarded star-crossed moment in both of their careers. My fave part is when he grabs her face.

Magic Fruit Party

Last night I attended a magic fruit Party - AKA miracle fruit. Miracle fruit are these tiny berries that screw with your taste buds causing sour foods to taste sweet. After coating my mouth with the magic berry slime I had super powers for a couple hours & was able to drink a couple shots of straight white vinegar, which tasted awesome until it hit my throat. Tequila went down like juice and Guiness tasted like soda pop. I could eat straight lemon slices and onion like it was sugar candy. Pretty magical experience .. but waking up in the morning after downing all that bullshit didn't feel so good. Probably burned a magic hole in my stomach.

Choices


If you had to either eat 7 shots of Manjazz (yours or your partners) or a thimble full of human feces, which would you choose? Now, if you could have some MIRACLE FRUIT first, would that change anything?

Bachelor Party!

This past long weekend was a meaty sex-storm of partying with at my brothers stag. Turns out, I'm a terrible photographer when I'm wasted. Here are the few gems on a camera full of sucky pics.

I'm pretty sure this is genitals


Corn Life


Creepy Cherub from a carnival ride


Hot Bachelor Tits


Alien Game

This is a photo I posed for by Shawn Mcpherson. It's true... I am a model & a sensual predator. BTW that's not a real tattoo & that is real drool.

Recreational CATSCAN


For the past 4 days I've had this weird throbbing discomfort in my abdomen to the point where I thought a creature was going to bust out my gut like that dude on Spaceballs. Last night I got freaked out that my appendix was gonna burst shit all over my insides so I went to the Emergency room at 2:00 am. They hooked me up with a CAT scan - pumped my veins full of horseshit and cranked me through the microwave stargate machine. I could feel the contrast fluid go through my whole vascular system & when I went through the machine I felt a warm tingling sensation on the end of my dick like I was getting a badass hummer from a malfunctioning furby. Weirdest shit ever. So after 7 hours in the emergency room it turns out the doctors couldn't find anything wrong with me and they think I may be passing a kidney stone cuz there's a tiny trace of blood in my piss. When I painfully pass this thing I'll be sure to scan it and post on the smearball. Now I pulled a shitty all nighter and I got tonnes of vizz to make today. What a waste of time.
