Buh-Bye, Strapless Sin Suits

North Carlina made

It seems more tasteful not to show everything

Real as the Streets

Like I mentioned in Reality Check, Mah Ninja, I’m going through a period of identity transformation.

I’ve never been good at fashion. My whole life was sweats and tees to hide the ol’ jelly belly. Then I lost weight. From there, if I could get it around the middle, would wear it.

So my closet was a smorgasbord of “why do you still own this?!” type of clothing that once defined my life.

But I’m a new creature in Christ and need to clothe myself accordingly.

Which is why I’m getting rid of anything lifestyle inappropriate or too small. Unfortunately, most items I’ve gone through are both. 😦

What if I don’t have a good paint brush?

Acrylic paint, For beginning Artist, Mixed media

Art on stretched canvas & I did not use a paint brush.  As I created this piece; I thought what if some one didn’t really have an assortment of brushes……..I enjoy finger painting and previous post I showed what small lines can be created with a toothpick. I would like to encourage beginning artists …that you don’t have to spend big dollars to express your creativity.

Upcycle is a way to take something free and change it into an eye catching piece.  The following items needed for this featured image:

I used a wedge spackle knife but a plastic spoon will do

Acrylic paint colors of your choice on 12 x 12″ stretched canvas

There seems to be an error that makes things complicated.  For example the dentists appointment has to be rescheduled 3 times because somewhere in the system coverage not shown.  Funds are coming out of my pay & human resources says yes there is coverage.

This dental appointment same thing your are self pay until verified.

All kind of thoughts come to mind….not good ones.  Ok there is an error that has occured by click of mouse.  Patience to see it through…that is the challenge.  Learned skill to behave well under difficult circumstances…not easy..
