My daughter is getting married in less than 3 weeks and I've been kept busy all this past winter preparing for the big event. Last winter I spent PAINTING, PAINTING, PAINTING. My daughter moved in with her fiance last April so I spent that crazy, snowy winter in my living room under the skylight painting all of the 14 paintings that hang in her gorgeous apartment. For those who thought I just disappeared and abandoned the blog...you're half right. I was just going to walk away from this blog and start a new one and then I thought...NO...this one has history, and followers, and just needs some time and attention! So I'm back with a new determination and direction for my life and work. As soon as my daughter's nuptials are behind me I want to use this blog to offer images for use on Polyvore...my new passion. I was led to start using that site by an amazing article in Somerset Studios Digital Studio magazine...the Spring 2012 issue. The article was written by Sheree Burlington, owner of musewarepottery.com. It's been a long time since anything has sparked my creative fires and the article literally set my heart on fire for a new direction and a new addiction...POLYVORE! If you're a clothes horse, a collage artist, or just a lover of fun apps, you HAVE to check out Polyvore.com Eventually I want this blog to host my own drawings, paintings and photographs so that users of Polyvore can incorporate them into their work. In the meantime, anyone looking for the perfect little gift for Mom or Grandma should check out my latest eBay listings at the_wild_gypsy. See y'all soon. Oh, btw, if anyone is wondering about the state of my health, the day before my daughter's wedding, May 10th, will mark the 7th anniversary of my remission from breast cancer. Not bad for an old broad who they had counted out from day one. AND, since I went to a more healthy and vegetable based diet, I'm down 16 lbs...YEOW...watch out Jersey, the Girl is back in town!
