First Collage on Canvas

Here's my first collage on canvas:

It's for my mom's orchid society auction. Couple screwups on there but it's the first. Hopefully it brings the society some funds and she doesn't bring it back home because she felt she had to buy it herself rather than hurt my feelings. lol

The day is gone, and I have done nothing! Only accomplished 2400 words. Have only 4400 left to be caught up for the month. Then I can worry about my 2000 words each day from this point forward rather than continuously playing catch up. YEEEYYYY! Why is it that I always accomplish more when I spend 8 hours at work yet when I'm off I have no way of functioning and I get nothing done!?

School Update: The LAST ENGLISH PAPER assignment I was supposed to receive today has been pulled!!! Professor decided she will only give us the Final - Thank GOODNESS!!!!

Work Update: just found out I will be out of my second job come July - the state is downsizing ha - and that's my spending/spa/extra/vacation/book/art supply money job. Darn! I'm so bummed. I never save money like I should. It is what it is I guess. I'm lucky and will not complain; I still have another to fall back on - for now and its not until July. It's been over 2 and a half years since I didn't have 10 jobs. Whats a girl to do?!!?

Music: Gavin Rossdale - Love Remains the Same

Drink: Sprite Zero and Water

Mood: Too bummed out to write; but I would love to lay on a hammock among these flowers and listen to the waterfall and relax with a glass of red wine:

Ahhhhh.....peace at last!

Awwwe, now you will be forced to publish your work to the masses for a profit. Thank goodness, best thing that ever happened to you.
It's fate pushing you to the door of infamy!

I love your collage! I think you should be a picture book illustrator with such a unique style. My mom grows orchids too.

Thanks Angie!

You write the book, I'll get you a cover!Deal!

Momma came back with a new plant and all kinds of stuff - so funny. I can't even grow lucky bamboo.

Sometimes I wonder if I'm adopted!

RR you know me better than that. I don't conform. I didn't do it when I was crocheting LSU blankets and could've made a killing and I won't do it now.

(must be why I never make no $$$) Darn!

She ended up putting it in the doorprize bag, which was wrapped up, poor winner didn't see it until they got home - ha! No free publicity.

Oh and my fanmail folder for RR is getting full, can I forward to you yet?? lol
