Holy crap!

Has it really been 4 months since I last posted?  Wow... it really does not feel like it has been that long!  I wish I had something exciting to say I was doing but I really can't.  The holidays came and went without too much fanfare although I did throw my first party at my house since moving to GA in 2004.  It was a big deal for me since I am weird about having people in my house but it went well and now I host a near monthly D&D-type game.  Yes, I am a nerd and geek. :) 

New Year's Party

I even threw myself a birthday party in February!  Sadly, I did not take pictures of either party because I have a really hard time remembering to do that.  I did manage to get a picture of my macabre cake I made for my birthday party, though. :)


The cake and frosting were flesh tone and had cherry "bloodclots" in the center :)


Hubby and I managed to go on at least one road trip.  As I've posted before, we often choose an interesting sounding name on the map then find a backroad way of getting there.  This time it was Eclectic, AL.  :)  On the way there, though, we stopped at a park just outside Tallapoosa, AL and I got into a little trouble!

When good road trips go bad - next on FOX!

I ended up being on Grand Jury for 8 weeks after the beginning of the year and used my $25 a day to add to an existing tattoo I have. :) 
 

Action shot of Flaco Martinez of All or Nothing Tattoo in Smyrna, GA working on me - he is super cute so I was happy to have my hand resting on his thigh ;)
  
The patchwork heart and skull were existing.  Flaco added the art supplies around it for me.  I am really happy with it!  He's going to touch up the heart and skull for me after the rest of it heals.


So, yeah... that's my recap of the last 4 months.  I told ya not much was really going on.

I've been in a bit of a creative slump but I can feel that starting to starting to lift.  My 1-year pledge of no new clothes ended march 1st so I got some pants and a few tops which I am going to refashion.  I also have some fabric that is screaming out at me as well as some cute little 4x4 canvases that need to be painted. :)  Hopefully, soon, I will have those to post for you!
