Renovating!

Hello hello! I know I haven’t been the best lately at blogging daily, but I wanted to let everyone know that “things” will be changing around here very soon! I’m talking MAJOR renovations people, and I’m seriously excited. I’m finally getting my own domain for my blog, and I’m even having a custom template designed for me. Told you it was exciting! I’m changing the name to the blog and everything. I’m also going to try and focus on a particular subject near and dear to my little hippie heart…..ART. All different kinds, because one thing I do believe is that art is all around us..if someone created it by hand, then it’s art to me. Some of it might just be “crafts”..I don’t think it has to be a painting, or a sculpture, it can be so many things and I plan on sharing some of my own creations as well as sharing other artists work that I particularly like or admire! I’ll have my hands full because I like tons of stuff out there..in fact I don’t think I’ve ever said I didn’t like a particular piece of art, the only thing I’ve ever said is if that art was “for me” or not. It does depend on your tastes, but regardless I will always support anyone who expresses themselves in creative ways…even those writers out there I admire…that’s definitely an art as well.

Anyway, I hope I’ve made some sense, I’m going on over 24 hours without sleep…so you know how that goes. Probably a lot of typos and other bad grammer going on!

I can’t say exactly when all the “renovations” will be done, but it shouldn’t be too long…so keep an eye out! It’s definitely going to be something special..I can feel it 🙂

Upcycling

Upcycling. (click or hover on the word to see the definition)

Upcycling and wanting to learn how to sew are my new favorite things. This afternoon I invested in some relatively cheap tools that will allow me to take beer bottles, wine bottles, soda pop bottles…you name it, and cut them and turn them into drinking glasses like this:

These are what I got Andrew for Father’s Day and I think he will LOVE them. He loves Corona so I thought he would think these are super cool! I got these off Etsy and was immediately curious how I could do it myself…cause lord knows I have enough wine bottles laying around! hehe. The guy that sells these only had these to offer and 2 other glasses made out of wine bottles, and besides him I couldn’t really find anyone else who was doing the same thing, so I thought, why not?? I can do this. I think they would make the perfect gift for a guy who loves a particular brand of beer, or for that classy girl like myself who enjoys a little wine every now and then and also cares about the environment. Plus, I think they would always be a conversation piece to anyone coming to your house and sitting down for a few drinks.

So anyway…

I can’t wait to get my tools in the mail and get to work! Even if I don’t sell any, I will just be happy to but my wine bottles, and Andrews random collection of different beer bottles to good use.

What do you think? Love it or hate it? Want to be the first to place a request for your type of beverage?? You know you want too!! 🙂

I Kissed A Girl

Where has Glenda been? Does anyone really care? If not, that’s ok…but if you have been wondering, YOU KICK ASS…cause that will make me feel better. Have you ever felt that if suddenly you were wiped off the face of the planet not a soul would notice? Invisible much? Yeah. Me too. Sometimes you just want to see someone gives a damn that isn’t “obligated” too. Anyway, I’ll stop whining now.

In other news, I don’t care if I am going to “hell” —

I LOVE this song…

Why? Cause it’s so true! Girls Women rock. No, I’m not gay. But whatever. “Us girls we are so magical, soft skin, red lips so kissable, hard to resist, so touchable…too good to deny it” – Yeah that about wraps it up.

Hate on… not sure I care. 🙂
