Oh, Lawdy!

Well I couldn't resist I had to say something to the meany in that one thread that sent me over the edge....

This is what I said incase it gets deleted:

I said I was done in this thread but feel I should defend myself and then I will truly be done, I hope....

Eurolyons I havent a clue why you think I was speaking to you directly I wasn't...

My point is that even here in this forum we have had threads where people have given their opinions on certain pubications. In some of these threads it has been said " that project is ugly, I won't be making it"...or "I didn't buy that magazine due to the God awful projects"...or better yet, "I dont know who is designing these things but I don;t like fun fur it's just plain ugly and over done"...

I do not like the meanspiritedness any more than you say you do but to act as one hasnt made the same comment to themselves is others is contradictory.

As for the perfect remark....I stand by what I can any of you "shocked" and upset by that blog act as if you never ever had a mean thought....

Go ahead and challege me or what I said.....but I challege you to improve your reading comprehension, perhaps if you had taken the time to read my post in totallity as well as Summerysmiles you would understand what I was saying.

An opinion is nothing more than a personal thought and JUDGEMENT you have come to......

And in closing perhaps this should be read about photos, unless you PROTECT your photos once they are posted on a public domain...anyone and everyone will and can "take" them and use them how they see fit...May not be right but it happens....I am a photographer and protect my photos, that I plan on using professionally, if posted in a public area, meaning the net.

Good day to you!

This place has turned so blood thirsty and self righeous.....what happened to being a grown-up and using our grey matter?

And this is the thread

And I realized in order to get a reply from my swap buddy I have to leave PM enabled, then off, once she replies....also I cant "follow" the friggin Valerie thread if I aint signed in!!! DAMN IT!

Oh well hopefully I get a reply ASAP.....and do I really need to read the Val thread? that was easy!!!!

Hiatus Everlastus?

Don't ask me about the title it just sounded Latin.

Okay I know I "threatened" to do this before but now it's a go.

(Threatened, like who would notice?)

I am on hiatus from C'ville.....I will complete the stole swap and enjoy the silent auction, thankful I need only post once or twice for these two events. I will not be posting or browsing post. Nor will I be answering Pms. If you wish to contact me please email me.

For those at DoD I will see you there...honestly other than Swapna at C'ville I cant say I will miss anyone else from there, thats not at Dod. And luckily I have Swapna on Google Chat.

What prompted me is it seems as of late its becoming more and more like Alice in Wonderland over there....People faking their deaths, good one you friggin lunatic!, People who call themselve Christains but seem to take great pleasure in women being raped, saying she asked for it, and lets not forget another someone who calls herself a Christian complaining, being judgmental, and using "idle words" all to often, look it up it's a biblical term. She sees fit to bash minorities as well as gays.....I am a minority, I am neither hetero nor homosexual.....I figure you love who you love....this is not a statement of Bi-sexuallity, I do loves me some sexy men.....for those with an open mind you will know what I mean.

I don't envy Donna, Tiffany or Julie....their jobs are getting tougher and tougher, seems everyone is overly senitive or overly "rightous"...Kudos to you ladies, you rock! This goes for the Mods as well.

Life is good people....and I don't want to waste any of my presicous friendship forming moments on people that will like me only if I conform to their ideas...

For the record, Donna the reason you can't get pregnant is you and your husband are too fucking fat to bump uglies.

This is my blog I can say what I damn well please.

If you find me mean....leave, don't come back....

Feeling Like A Dick.....

Yeah...that's me! Okay potty minds I mean a private dick, a detective....think Bogey, remember when dick was a good word?

Ummm yeah and I sorta feel like a regular old dick too....can girls be called dicks?

Anywho.....I have been on a low....highs/lows...highs, good..lows, bad!

But some recent delevopements over at the Ville got my mojo flowing! I love me some detective work and now I got me some!!! Okay so I still have a shit load of projects sitting here to do, some are paying jobs people!!!! And then I have many upon many packages for friends here....I have got to mail them!!!
Anyway back to the detective work....the long and short of it is....a liar, a gang of dick-ish women (you know who you are!) and the uncovering of the BS! How fun! Anywho, here's to finding the truth! *Raises dt. pepsi can in the air*

The other dickish (the bad dick) part is this.....not mailing those damned packages.....and finding out only just NOW Deneen has been in the hospital....not been reading blogs I am afraid! One failure I never wanted to achieve is being a lousy friend even via the net....and lately I have been doing that leaps and bounds....Not just been neglectful of Deneen either..but several more people....I have no excuse other than I just have been out of sorts....not good enough I know! Fingers crossed I may actually be able to leave the house this weekend for more than a quick grocery store run.....The Offspring have asked to go to a Foward Fest put on by The Art Council...I really got to psyche up for getting out there...I can do it...can't I?

Be well.....

Edited to add my horoscope for the day....interesting , no?

You'll be torn now -- between keeping yourself absolutely, one hundred percent silent, and letting absolutely everything you know be known. What a decision. The culprits behind your dilemma, of course, are conversational Mercury and all-or-nothing Pluto, who've settled together in your house of communication, working together with the solar eclipse, the mother of all astrological energies, urging you to make a decision. Once you've made it, don't waffle. Let the rest of the world play games. You're above that. Right?

HAHA...above what again?

Howdy Stranger

Okay first, put down your stones and clubs...I know I said I was gonna send pressies/packages out as soon as I got to the city (during the open hours of the post)....well I haven't made it yet....

Things are so whack here.....I swear if I could take a vacation even via a coma at this point I would......SIGH...I know woe is me...boohoo!

Long and short my craft room nay my and hubby's craft shop (read: two br, one bathroom, huge woodshop build on, mobile home, completely refurbished)is now being packed away...all my walls of yarn and fabric and painting stuff to be tucked away or dropped at goodwill as I have no where else to house it. I am looking into having a "cottage" looking shop built nearer the main house but it's costly. Anyway I am sad and pissed and even more than that I feel guilty and a shit for feeling sad and pissed. I know I am a selfish ass.....But on the up side my grandmother is moving in to it so she will be close....I really have missed her since she moved to Colorado, she is after all my mama, she raised me so she is even if she didnt push me out. Shes a fairly healthy independent 72 year old. Infact she is in Vegas partying like it's 1999 as I type this. I just hope what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas!!!

I am also working on that book list.....meaning today I am making the list with links to read about them and once they are claimed I will register them with bookcrossing and then mail them out. HA, yea when next I get to the city. Geeez, I sound like Blimpy with his friggin "I will gladly pay you on Tuesday"....

Thus is my recent new life path as a slug....I am pushing many deadlines with this new slug routine.I have a baby quilt I was trying to get over to Beth for the friggin silent auction....ummmmm it's cut and sitting on the sewing table. I have a gourd ready to be painted....sitting beside my bed, no paint no nothing, but it *is* ready. And I signed up for that damned stole swap over at the 'Ville, cuz I am just so smart like that....and now can find not one pattern that pulls me in, wait that is a lie I found one but the yarn would cost over $100.This is gonna sound mean but I can't see sending a $100-$200 item to someone I don't know. Mean? Oh well thems the facts of my truth. If it were to be a gift for a friend or family member, not a problem at all. Yea, once again I am a selfish as...sigh!

On to good not so whine stuff.....Last night we had to go to one side of the city and we happened upon a petition signing thingy for Kinky Friedman....he is so friggin funny, gotta love a jewish cowboy, anywho I went over to sign the petition and there was a dude sitting at the table wearing a crocheted hat...made of wool ease, I asked him who crocheted his hat for him and he said one of the radio personality ladies did for a fund raiser they have yearly. She makes them he buys them. I said cool I make those...he said I will be here next Saturday all day bring me some of your hats please I really need more....HELLO! A radio dude wants a hat plushe works for the Kinky Friendman for governor campaign. I read his books, I eat his salsa, I totally got a groovy luv for him for his animal rescue ranch in Austin, so why not vote for him?

So here is to hoping I get all done this coming week I need to plus get to the post before I need a loan to mail this shit...LOL

Deneen, Jane and a special someone you are in my thoughts...

Be well y'all and if you are interested in the free books list just drop me an email at simplewitchery at gmail dot com....will be sent in the order of the emails received....Thanx!

Bead There, Done That!

Come sit a spell and look over my few poorly lit pics of crafty goodness....I have loads more to share but decided to do a few at a time rather than all at once....WHEW!

This is a clay and glass bead bracelet...much nicer in person. At least I think so!

This is a turquoise and coral set...special order...I really like working with the natural looking , rough and earthy, beads.

This is the close of of the fabric for the tote in the photo below this one. Its a nice paisley flannel.

The handles are wooden beads on metal, and thats a tiny mohair crochet flower there on the front. Its closure is velcro. Its large enough to hold a hardback book, glasses, cell and a few other doo-dads.

Guess I should mention on the necklace of the rabbit set, I use a toggle clasp. The lady who wanted it travels a lot for her work and without her husband finds it hard to put on necklaces and bracelets with regular clasps. Was happy to hear that it was easy to get on and off without assistance.

ANNOUNCEMENTS!....if you have the breast club button up on your blog, ditch it the group or maybe I should say lack of, is now defunct...I just ain't a leader me thinks...

Jane it was nice to talk to you the other night....Glad to hear you are in good spirits.

The movie Restoration had arrived.....I haven't watched it yet (again) because I need to not be distracted.

Currently reading Mira,'s actually a teen book, but I love me a Faerie Tale especially of the Grimm variety and this is very much that.

Jonesing for Some Red Hot Thready Love!

Well today has been a good day. With much thanx to Kari for making it so.

Anyway.....I don't think I can wait for July to join a doily swap. I need me a doily swap happening, like yesterday, man! Anyone interested?

Hoping to mail the packages/letters tomorrow y'all! If I am able to get to the city that is. Fingers crossed on this.

I also am working on a list of books I am done reading and will begin passing this around (psst...Swapna first, wink) for those interested to pick what they may be interesed in and I will get them in the post as soon as I can. Remember I was building inventory for a used book store and now I must weed through and find homes for many of my beloved ones. Life dictates purging them now. Same with many of my fabrics and lower end yarns, I fear. Holding out on those 'til the witching hour, ya know?

I ordered Restoration and Eerie,Indiana a while back and they are on back order...very sad. Been looking forward to them for ages. I also ordered Lidsville and can not wait to get it...hope it doesn't go to back order. Remember we don't have any tv service, network or cable/satelite, we live way, way to far out even for a reg old antenna (sp) we only see programmes once they go to DVD. Our most recent purchase was Veronica Mars....oddly, I loved it. And Cracker the American version (love the bbc version and plan on ordering it too). Oh yeah, Battlestar Galatica season two, have yet to find season one and now must wait to see two until one can be found. Hey, just remembered I ordered Black Books too....hmmmm wonder where it is? As soon as those come in I think I will stalk amazon for Jonathan Creek....Love BBC! SIGH!!!

I would love to see links to peoples amazon wishlist on their blogs. Ya really can get a feel for someone by peeking at their wants and desires.

I can't find my digital camera....will post pormised pics as soon as I can hunt that buggah down....I never lose my camera!!!

Lynlee, it was nice to see your name again! Wanted to hug ya...HA how odd, but anywho thats what I thought when I saw your name!

K, Regina e-mailing......I never pass up giftage!

Be well

Want Fries With That?

"Better never to have met you in my dream than to wake and reach for hands that are not there." Otomo No Yakamochi

Loves end is a pain in the rump no matter if its for a fellow human, or a community.

Recently, I have been waddling along taking care of personal issues. Shut yo mouth! Yea, I know I hate whining, overly personal posting...whatevah. Anyhoo been taking care of stuff here in Lollieland and haven't been posting on or reading many blogs, nor have I been in what was once my fave hangout much....The long and short is the place I fell in love with is no longer there....its a seething pool of bullshit and very clique-ish....Heaven forbid you not be one of the pity me crowd you're all but ignored. I don't wanna post my creations there anymore...not because they suck, but because it seems one is obviously overlook if you aren't in the "in crowd"...Who can figure the dynamics, I sure as hell can't.

If you arent a Christian....these good folk who call themselves one...act like you have the plague. Odd for those that are suppose to be loving open people. Alisha all but avoids me now...bravo...WWJD, HUH?

Then you have a self serving know it all...seems anytime anyone post she must give her approval....WHO THE FUCK CARES WHAT YOU THINK YOU TWIT??? She always has an opinion...Typing for the sake of seeing her typing ....The smokers want to do a swap....good idea if you ask me....but no one did, LOL...anyway this person wasted no time in making her thoughts known...SHE DOESNT SMOKE!, however, her cheerio to the thread starter was nothing more than a put down guised as a compliment....Listen Donna get over it you aint so fucking special we all need your fucking approval, you half wit self absorbed turd! I swear when a new post is up she is right there and I get that Charlie Brown thing going on in my head. BlaH BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH...OY!

Anyway, I am very sad because I long for the community it was one whined about everyday bullshit. If someone had a problem you were more likely to read cuz you KNEW it was a real problem. Not mundane everyday crap most people deal with. It didnt used to matter what religion you were.....I still like to read posts in show and tell but my perception has become one of feeling very much to as if I don't belong.

We have a rule in our family......ditch toxic people, they just bring ya now what do I do? Keep on keeping on like I am, reading but not posting?
Should I push my way in? That's not my nature. So I guess I will keep me on the down-low until I decide if I want to stay.

Now people may say I am not really into C'ville anyway....I rarely post, they never see me bragging about any charity work, and they never see me posting overly personal get to know me crap...AH HA but you are wrong very very wrong.....
I send a ton of RAOKs, alot to some of the people that shun me, I also give a ton of comfortghan squares perhaps I should be one of the masses and make sure all know my good deeds.....Don't these acts make me a community member? Maybe I am looking at it all wrong...maybe I should just act like I dont notice all the bullshit. Why the hell are these clique-ish types being allowed to run the board? I was thrilled to see a recent post about etiquitte however....perception plays into this....what I might find flame-ish someone else might not find anything wrong with it and visa versa.

Guess all and all the saddest part is I am allowing myself to let these few make me want to leave....Why, I wonder?

Okay I think I have done enough rambling and bitching...just the afore mention bugs the ever loving crap out of me.

On to other stuff....

My friend Miss Jane needs good thoughts and prayers going to her husband George. He has been ill and she's a strong lady but not in the best health herself. I have had a card sitting here for her for almost 3 weeks and haven't made it to the post office yet. Yea, I suck. Sorry Jane. Luv Ya and stuff...

Speaking of packages....I have a number sitting here for fellow crafter/crocheters.
Jo, Beth, Swapna, Vicki, Faith, Melissa and Deneen....Hoping to mail these bad boys Friday. Fingers crossed ladies! Me and time lately....never a twain shall meet, ya know what I mean?

Deneen, I think I found a solution to stink fish-y pan/skillets. Vanilla, baby....I know it works for a worth a shot in a pan...just add a teaspoon or two in the skillet and warm on the stove....buh-bye stinky fish pan!

I will be adding product to my site this week! YAY! If I can make me do it, HA the catch! I think I will make the total cost include postage.

Thanx to Tiffany, Fran and Vicki all sent fabulous packages! It means a ton...Love that you all took the time and thought of me! Makes a people feel good. Tiffany sent a box with divine, wool ease thick and quick and something else thats loverly. And Vicki sent divine, candle and notepad. Fran sent a ton of pet food coupons! And I probably should apologize. I think sometimes when I type things they just don't come out like I want them too. And Fran had been gracious enough to send a monitary donation a month or so ago and I mentioned I felt odd taking it....I did feel weird, but not a bad weird...more like a surprise at such kindness....BTW 3 doggies spayed this year! YAY!

I guess I will close with a disclaimer now.....
If my post upset anyone metioned in it or anyone sensitive...BITE ME!

Oh and again I will probably not be here much due to stuff and things....I do have Fos to post as well as a pic of the fabu shawl Deneen sent. Thoughts and good vibes peeps, plz!

PS...Swapna, I missed ya something awful, glad you're back!
