Really Bolivia? Get Your Own Account!

Ok so in trying to post my last email warning I have found out what happened.  My email was hacked!!!  By someone in Bolivia of all things.  And no I don’t know anyone there.  Password has been changed so it should hopefully not happened again.  But now I see the importance of changing passwords.  I will be creating some new passwords for all my online places and changing them in the next month.  Google wouldn’t let me log in because they deactivated my account for suspicious activity.  Kudos Google.  I’d close the account but it’s attached to a lot of things I do online (i.e. this blog), so I can’t.  A simple firm strong password change should fix that.  Here’s hoping.  Ok, just wanted to update you guys on that.  Please still don’t click on any links from any emails from me from a gmail account.  Alright, talk to you lovelies later.  Be good until then.  Bye for now.

Loves ya Red heart,

I Will NEVER Email You From Gmail

Hey guys and dolls, it has been brought to my attention that emails with my name have been being sent out with a link to I don't know where.  If you get an email from with a link in it, DO NOT click it.  If I email you it will only be from my email account or my shop email accounts if I am doing business with you.  Sorry for anyone who got the email.  Going to be running a virus check and hopefully that will sort it out. Have a great weekend everyone.  :-)  Bye for now.

Magic Beyond Words: The J. K. Rowling Story

So while in Jackson Pearce’s live chat tonight, one of the chatters mentioned the Lifetime movie “Magic Beyond Words: The J. K. Rowling Story”.  Bet you can’t guess what it was about.  Here’s a hint, it had something to do with Harry Potter.  Winking smile   Anyway, this person said it was amazing and posted a link to Lifetime’s website to watch it.  I headed on over there, because I’m so interested in Rowling and how she went from hard times to successful living.  I’ve just finished the movie and while it was a wee bit corny with a bit of “Hollywood” magic thrown in there to make the story “pop” more, it was pretty good.  I saw I didn’t have all my facts straight on her previous life before Harry fandom and was in more awe to see what she went through and how everything just came to be.

Watching this movie made me see that I should keep going with my writing.  I’m rusty with it, at best, but I’m doing it.  One word at a time.  So I’ve decided to finish the novel I am working on now, work on a second novel for Camp Nanowrimo for August, and then I am returning to my original novel “Jumper”.  It’s kind of weird, but from watching the movie I think I see why it didn’t flow so well.  My characters aren’t right.  Their ages are off, and there story is off a bit too.  But now thier story is coming to me.  While I never got “Jumper” out of my mind, I hadn’t been actively writing it in my head like I used to.  Now I’m back to mentally making notes and I take this as a sign as I am finally ready to write Andrea’s and Max’s story.  So come September I will start fully outlining it for two months and then hopefully write it all for Nanowrimo in November.  Here’s hoping.

And that’s about it.  I’m going to go work on my novel for this month, I slacked off the last two days so I only roughly have 2 days to finish it.  Talk about pressure, but I tend to write better under pressure.  Go figure.  LOL!  And hey, are you interested in watching that J. K. Rowling movie?  Check it out here.  Not sure if you can watch it outside of the States, so sorry if you can’t.  Enjoy it and I will talk to you guys real soon.  Be good until then.  Bye for now.  Smile

Damn LiveJournal!

So as some of you know, I cross-post this blog to LiveJournal.  The post I recently put up for you guys I just now got to post on LiveJournal, 12 hours later practically.  But I found a cool website through it being down, and since I could finally upload my post, I’d consider the whole situation a win/win.  Here’s my post to LiveJournal talking about what happened and talking about the site.
Way to stress a girl out!  I have been trying to post a blog post since early this morning.  I thought my desktop publishing program was acting up on me again, but then I tried to load some LiveJournal blogs and for a while none came up, but then one came up for me later.  It was just wonky all day.  But it did lead me to find a cool website I never knew of.
I thought maybe someone hand mentioned LiveJournal downtime so I googled it and found a website that tells you if a website is down. Down Right Now, shows you through graphs and written details if a website is down.  Right now it’s saying LiveJournal is still having some trouble and that Blogger is having some iffy problems too.  Great, I wanted to post this on Blogger to share the website link.  I guess we’ll see if it is having trouble.  But I thought this site was pretty cool.  And you can leave reports too on if a website is working for you or not to help them collect information about website statuses.
But I’m glad I finally got to post my post, practically 12 hours later.  Am I bitter?  Maybe a bit.  But hey, technology, what are you gonna do?  Oh did you know LiveJournal also has a Twitter account?  I assumed it did, but never hunted it down.  It does and they seem to keep it up to date.  I decided to follow it, you know, just in case I need it.
Well I am off now.  I need to wash some clothes and then wash my hair, which can take forever.  Ugh!  Talk to you lovelies later.  Be good until then.  Bye for now.

Epic Picture Of Epic Epicness Proportions

So you know how you start on one “end of the internet” and while playing your own version of Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon you end up on something totally off the topic of the item you originally went after, but it ended up being epic so you were copasetic with it?  Yeah, that just happened to me tonight.  Open-mouthed smile

So I was watching one of the “popular” YouTubers and their little show and I found my way through their show to another video that lead me to a website blog that I had been to before months ago.  I decided to see what craziness it had on it today and I found myself looking at the most epic picture.

Now let me just say, I am not a fan of anime drawing.  Wait, wait, wait, wait.  Let me correct myself.  I’m not a big fan of “Pokémon” style of anime drawing.  The pointy nose with just a triangle of shadow for definition.  All the characters looking the same and only being able to be told the difference between them by their hair and sometimes their voices.  And just the whole flat look of the style.  I am just not a fan and try to avoid it when I can.  Now, that’s not to say some pictures in that style can’t be done well, and I found one today ladies and gentlemen.  Take a looksie.  Open-mouthed smile




Now you cannot tell me that is not awesome!  I wonder how long it took to make?  It’s just so awesome.  Now this isn’t full size of course, very sadly I needed to edit it for the blog, so click on the “source” link to go to the blog entry and see the full size of it.  I mean I literally worked on this picture for over an hour to try to get it to a size any of my image hosts would take.  Denied everywhere.  So I had to do the chop in half, and it still got distorted.  Sorry about that.  But you get the idea.  It’s so epic.  Smile

I want to make a print of this to frame so badly.  See I am dragging my Potter fandom out.  I have not seen the movie yet, and NO don’t tell me about it!  Sure, I read the book, went to the midnight release and read it in less than 12 hours.  So I know who wins in the end.  But I kept hearing they wouldn’t tell if they were going to do the epilogue in the movie and I’m so excited about seeing if they did.  And of course I want to see how epicly this movie series ends.  So don’t say anything please!!!  I plan to see it on my birthday with my sister and anyone else who plans to come.  So excited, and of course that picture makes it moreso.

Oh, and let me just say thank you to those of you out there who are not ruining it for other who have not seen the movie yet.  I thought for sure I’d come across some Potter leaks due to a lot of people online I talk to or read their stuff they tend to be Potter fans.  But they have all been nice and not said how it ends for those who haven’t read the book and they aren’t telling how the movie is.  Kudos guys.

And well I guess that’s all I wanted to share with you guys today.  I am still working on my novel, and dreading a doctor’s appointment tomorrow.  I’ll say it here, my doctor intimidates me.  She’s a cool doctor, has a lot of good advice, she just seems to lack the people skills.  I mean I do too, but when I am stressed out about being at the doctor the last thing I need is to wonder if she is like this with everyone or just me.  So I am worried she will “slap me on the hand” for not having lost weight in the month since I saw her last.  Technically I did lose weight…and then I put it back on through stress.  Easy go easy come.  I’m not giving up on it, just worried about what she will say.  I mean she didn’t say anything about my weight the past two times we met until I brought it up.  I know my weight is affecting my health so I am ok with talking about it to try to get it off of me.  But in the same breath I don’t want to be reprimanded about it.  You know what I mean?  So yeah, kind of nervous about that.  Oh well, nothing I can do now except be honest with her tomorrow and tell her I will give it the old college try again.

*sigh*  Ok, seriously going now.  Talk to you all soon.  Be good until then.  Bye for now.  Smile

Having Fun On

So I am still searching around Zibbet and finding so much interesting stuff.  I could truly go broke looking at some of this stuff.  LOL!  Ok so for those who don’t know, Zibbet is a handmade marketplace out of Australia that is a lot like Etsy and Artfire, only better.  LOL!  It kind of combines the sleekness of Etsy with the cool seller features of Artfire.  It’s slowly rising in fame, and some people hope it will take over the handmade marketplace.  I kind of hope it doesn’t get too big so it won’t have to turn to shifty procedures like Etsy and Artfire have.

But one of the things on the site I love is the vintage section.  I love snooping through and seeing what treasures people have found, especially the toys they have found.  My friend came across one such toy item ,in Modred Vintage on Zibbet, that I wish I could buy.  But at the price it is I wouldn’t want to open it, and truly, what’s the fun in that.  LOL!  Have a look.


A Barbie pack from the late 70s to early 80s.  My friend said she had that pack and still has the wicker-like bag.  I used to love these packs when I was a kid.  I mean sure dolls were cool, but it was the clothing and accessories that made them.  Smile


Back of the pack.


Closer detail of the front of the pack and what’s in it.


And one more for the road.

As a kid I would have loved this pack.  The possibilities would have been endless with it.  All the fashion combinations I could have made.  Nowadays packs like this don’t interest me much unless they have awesome shoes in it or cute and usable accessories.  *sigh* Oh to be young again where the imagination could take you anywhere and a scrap of fabric was either a beautiful evening gown or a kick ass toga.  *shrugs*  Oh well.  But I just had to share this item with you.  If you are interested in it, it’s currently for sale for $16.20 at Modred Vintage.  I’d love it myself, but I’d want to take it out, not sure if it’s for nostalgia or because I’d really want to use the stuff…that wicker-like bag seems really cool.  Smile

And I am off again.  I need to work on my Nano.  I think if I really give it a couple of hours of hard work I could knock it out in a day or two, or at least get the needed 50k to win.  Wish me luck.  Smile  Talk to you all soon.  Be good until then.  Bye for now.  Smile

When You’re Sad…Smile

So, unless you have cut yourself off from the world today, you no doubt have heard that Amy Winehouse passed away.  Now I wasn’t a big fan of Amy’s, but I liked her music and felt for her and her battles with drug and alcohol abuse.  When my sister told me she had died I felt so sad for her.  Not because we lost a celebrity, but because she has lost the war she was fighting.  Now we don’t know completely why she died yet, but even if it was due to sickness there is no doubt in my mind she could have fought it off if her body wasn’t ravaged by drug and alcohol abuse.  It’s just so sad that someone so young and talented and who seemed to have it all was in so much pain that she turned to such evils.  I truly feel she could have gone far in life and in her career.  I hope wherever she is that she is finally at peace and can finally rest.

Every since hearing the news I’ve been in a very “thoughtful” mood.  There’s of course the whole “we’re all going to die some day and some of us go sooner than others” kind of thoughts.  But it also makes me really see that I truly need to seize the day more often because I don’t know if this is my last chance to do so.  So I am going to stop being scared and chicken to do stuff and just jump in, feet first of course, and just see what happens.  There’s nothing that could happen that doesn’t have a solution so I just need to do it.  I encourage you to seize the day as well, and do whatever your heart has been aching to do.  There’s never been a more right or perfect time than today, so go out there and do it!  You have my permission.  Smile


And to bring this post back to a cheerier note, my sister found this video from America’s Got Talent and I just had to share it with you.  It almost made me get weepy seeing how happy these kids were to have reached a big goal in their lives.  Watch and enjoy.  Smile

And that’s about it for today.  I’ve got to get back to my Camp Nanowrimo novel that I need to finish and soon, and then I am working on inventory stuff and I have some other business news I will share with you guys a little later.  I will just say my sister and I are teaming up to create a line of something or another.  I’ll update you more on it later after we’ve sorted out some things.  Stay tuned for that.  And I will talk to you all later.  Be good until then.  Bye for now.  Smile

I Wanna See Your Peacock

Hey all!  I’m back and in way better spirits than yesterday.  Smile  My thumb feels tons better, I am able to text, type, and crochet, if just a little bit slower.  And the pain has been gone since yesterday.  I haven’t taken the bandage off yet to look at it, but I will in a bit to clean it, then I will be getting back to the list of things I set for myself to do this week, that being emails, comments, sort bookmarks, make shop inventory, etc. And hey, the week is only half over so I still have tons of time, right?

But I did want to come back and show you guys the cute elephant I’ve been working on, but I only just finished it’s head this morning.  So I will do something else for you.  I will leave you with a funny video.  I won’t explain it since it wasn’t explained to me when I got the link, but the video is funny once you catch on to what is going on.  Now I’d say this is safe for work, but Katie Perry’s song “Peacock” is in the video, and I know she can be on the “risqué” side, so you may want to listen to this on low or mute if you know the song and think it’s to dirty for those around you.  I was more interested in the video and I can only recall the chorus being “I wanna see your peacock cock cock, your peacock cock cock.”  And well, I’m just thinking those words weren’t meant to be just “catchy”, if you get my drift.  I’m taking them as meaning animals or maybe a dance, and being catchy, and that’s that.  Smile  So enjoy the video, and I will talk to you all later.  Be good until then.  Bye for now.  Smile

Preheat To 375 Degrees


I was going to have something awesome to show you today.  A cute crochet elephant for dolls to hold.  It was coming along and I was going to spend the whole afternoon finishing it.  But before I was going to do that, I wanted to try another recipe from my gluten free cookbook.  I made bread yesterday, and it turned out good, if just a little dense.  So today I wanted to make the Coffee Cake Muffins.  Mixed them.  Put them in the oven. Sat talking for a while to my sister.  Timer goes off.  Grab oven mitts.  Reach into oven.  Grabbed hot pan that has been in a 375 degree oven for almost half an hour.  Suddenly feel pain.  Really hot searing pain that almost feels cold.  Realize something’s wrong and toss pan back into oven.  Take mitt off and realize skin on thumb has puckered and turned white and gotten hard.  Chaos ensues.

Yes ladies and gents, I have been inducted into the burn club.  Sure I’ve burned my hand before on something hot but those were surface burns.  This burn is like none I’ve ever felt before.  It went straight through all skin to the very core of my thumb.  What happened?  The oven mitt stitching had come loose.  And I was SO lucky it was just my thumb that got the pain.  The stitching came loose from the thumb to the palm.  So it could have been oh so worse.  I’m glad the bulk of the pan went into my left hand that had the good mitt on.  We had no idea the other one had come unraveled like that.  So I spent the afternoon in pain and freaking out.  Note to others who go through this, if the pain is bad, take a nap.  When I woke up the pain was all but gone. I can actually type fairly well, but I don’t know about doing crochet.  I’ll try it out, but I am not holding my breath. I taught myself how to do it right handed even though I’m a lefty. I just felt it would be easier learning the craft in a “righties world”.  Hehe, jokes on me then.

So yeah, I did have something great in the works to show you. But things got changed.  Maybe tomorrow.  Maybe next week.  Sad smile  Until then I guess I will work on my novel.  I’m off for now guys.  Talk to you all soon.  Be good until then.  Bye for now.

Oh yeah, the muffins turned out good…if just a little dense. *sigh*

I Knew I’d Eat Those Words

So it seems I DO do FaceBook.  *sigh* Let me explain.

Ok, so yes, I made a BIG deal about leaving FaceBook behind.  And YES, I was glad to have left it behind.  But then I signed up to Zibbet, and a lot of their background talk happens on, you guessed it, FaceBook.  I want to start my business there and I am finding that the best way to get great advice from the community was to be an active member of it.  So I joined the clubs, friended the friends, and pop into the chat.  I don’t even have a shop open yet and it’s like we are all old friends. LOL!  So yeah, I feel defeated, but it’s for a good cause.

They have a locked in price for year long shop payment at 69 dollars. I want to have two shops though. So I need to really work hard on this since they only have 432 of those accounts left.  It will be so worth it to get in on that deal. But I need to make money towards it first.  So I will be working on that some this week. I wanted to have my shop open by my birthday, but I am hoping sooner than that.  Fingers crossed that I can do it.

Well I am off.  Just wanted to pop on and let you know what utter fail I am made of. I just wanted to mention it because I didn’t want to seem like a liar later when I mention something I did on FB.  So yeah.  Talk to you all later, be good until then. Bye for now.  Smile

So in surfing around the net I came across a video ad for something new called “Smile Tagging”.  Well of course I had to check it out.  After watching the video I was just in disbelieving awe.  Have we really gotten to the point where Kraft Macaroni and Cheese want to get into the social networking field?  Have I completely lost you?  Check out the video below to understand what I mean.

No words can explain the smh derpdom that this just causes.  Seriously?  That’s why most websites, pictures, or links have tiny FB and Twitter buttons underneath them and you simply type “This made me smile guys.”.  But hey, I guess you have to give it to them for trying.  Right?  Yeah I think that’s my cue to get off the internet and go do something worthwhile like read a book.  See you all tomorrow.  Be good until then.  Bye for now.  Smile

ArtFire Retires Basic Accounts

If you go over to the ArtFire forums expect to hear a lot of this.

Warning, I’m about to rant, rave, and vent my feelings about the recent knowledge about the Artfire basic accounts being closed.  I don’t care about my account being closed really, but I do care about the horribly snarky people over there who talk like their poo doesn’t smell.  You have been warned.  Devil

Ever Have That Moment Where You Realize…

that you seriously messed up?  Well, it finally hit me today that I royally messed up.  So I have once again basically been stuck in bed again feeling sick like crazy and not understanding why.  But then I finally stopped to think about it and realized how I reacted when I did certain things and well…I really need to leave gluten alone.  I know!  I know!  I know I said I was going back on a strict gluten-free diet.  And I meant every word of it.  But after going almost a week on gluten-filled food I guess my body began to crave it again.  And so almost every day since I said I was going back on gluten-free I’ve been having a taste of gluten here and there.  And today it just all hit me to the point where a couple of times I wanted to just go down to my knees and give into the discomfort.  So yeah…

But I don’t know why I did it?  Why didn’t my health mean more to me than having a cracker or a piece of bread?  Especially knowing that if I am truly gluten-intolerant that I have further messed up my intestines from my gluten adventure.  It’s been messing with my weight loss.  It’s been messing with my life, moreso than usual.  So why would I give in.  They say if you have gluten-intolerance that you crave it more.  So maybe that’s it.  I don’t know.  All I do know is I am going to try something new to get back on on track with a strict gluten-free diet.  Although its very hard to be on one in my current living situation, I’ll do my best to make it happen.

I just see all these ailments I had before slowly coming back and I don’t understand how this isn’t screaming at me to get a grip.  Like I now have tonsil stones again.  I haven’t had them since going gluten-free, or at least not that I know of.  For those of you who don’t know what they are, tonsil stones are when mucus collects in these pockets in your tonsil and food and debris that get caught in it start to solidify and form into a stone.  They say most adults get it and that even if you have your tonsils removed you can still get them, so there’s not point in doing so.  Well I guess with the gluten causing my body to react to it I guess it’s made for the ripe situation to get them again.  And they are bad this time.  I’m hoping they will dislodge soon and my throat will start to feel better.  Ughhh!

On a brighter note, my mom got her heart monitor today and will have it until Thursday. On another good note, she didn’t have an episode yesterday, which is even better.  But on a down note, she was fine today until she had some meat that was FULL of sodium and she ended up having an episode.  Something makes me think she needs to go on a strict low sodium diet, which she is suppose to already be on, and maybe stop a medicine she is taking that might be the issue.  I don’t know.  We’ll see I guess.  All our diets need to improve here, but there are so many excuses it drives me batty.  But I won’t give up.  I shall continue to fight the good fight!  Fighting!  Shifty Hehehe, one to many Korean dramas, don’t mind me.  Smile

Well, that’s about it for now.  Mostly I’ve just been spending my time surfing doll forums to pass the time and keep my mind off the intense sickness I feel.  I finally made my mind up on what I want for my birthday and will be purchasing that at the end of the month or first day of August.  I have decided against a hamster right now since my room would be too hot or too cold for it, and one innocent hamster turned into 3 all living in the same cage…my mom and sister both want one, and so I just said forget it for now.  I might get one around Halloween or Christmas if I can find a good space for him in my room and so I will only have one to deal with and not three.  So no ham-ham, just dolls.  But in the end, am I really losing on the deal?  Winking smile  Talk to you guys later.  Be good until then.  Bye for now.

I Don’t Do Facebook


Not anymore, at least.  Ah, Facebook, my mortal enemy.  Sucking up way to much of my time over things I usually ended up hating.  I first went over to Facebook when everyone else was still all crazy over MySpace.  I’m so not a follower when it comes to my friends, so I wanted to try something new.  Then everyone started going over there and got a point where people didn’t ask you “Do you have a Facebook?” but asked “What’s your Facebook?”, and I hated it.  It has gotten to a point where my friends have all but stopped calling me and messaging me and now if it isn’t done through Facebook then I am just SOL.

My friend once arranged a movie date on Facebook when she knew I didn’t go on Facebook.  I found her message weeks later and I asked her why she didn’t let me know she was free to see the movie.  She said she’d messaged me on Facebook about it.  I’m thinking, well if you saw I hadn’t responded why didn’t you just CALL ME?  Now this same friend will let months to half a year or more go by without saying anything to me unless I walk by her at her job and she only lives about 25 minutes away on the other side of town.  This just doesn’t make sense to me.  And my other friends don’t contact me unless they need something.  So it hit me, why am I on Facebook?  It’s not to “keep in touch”, because honestly I was wasting my time reading about how other people were living and enjoying their lives.  This time I could have spent on enjoying mine.  I mean, what is so hard about calling?  Why do I have to wish you a Happy Birthday on your Wall instead of calling you, knowing you won’t pick up anyway?  Is everyone really so detached???  I’d had my fill.

I’ve deactivated my account several times before, but always went back after a month or so.  This time I had to do something drastic to keep me off the damned site.  So I went in with bombs blazing and took out everything.  First I deleted all my “friends”.  Then I deleted all my “likes” and Fan Pages I followed.  Then I deleted my Wall.  Everything is completely gone.  I’m still a member of one club on there that is private, but everything else is gone.  I’m thinking of having them delete my account, but it seems like more work than it’s worth.  In order to delete it, you can’t touch your account for at least 2 weeks, but every site out there practically has it where you can log in with Facebook, and some sites I go to you can only log in with Facebook.  So I’d hate to accidentally log in and mess up the whole process.  So I will just live it sitting there, a reminder that I was once there, and move on with my life.  Now if my “friends” want to contact me, they will have to actually make some effort and call me.  I’m not expecting any calls.  That is of course, unless they need something.

But I can’t even begin to explain what a big weight has been lifted off my shoulders by finally saying good-bye to the place.  I plan to start using Twitter more, which I am ok with because you can actually have a conversation with people there.  I’ve got to stay in some form of social networking because of future plans for my future, but Twitter is a lot like blogging and commenting, so I can handle that.

And well, that’s what I have been up to lately.  Oh that and working on my novel.  Still working on outline, and yes it’s day seven.  I’m not sweating it yet.  I’ve still got 3 weeks to bust it out.  Smile  Plenty of time. Smile  Well, I just wanted to update you guys on what I’ve been up to.  I still have so much to do and so little time to do it in.  Ugh!  I need a longer day I tell you!  Oh before I forget, seems the insurance came through and my mom will be getting her heart monitor on the 12th.  I still want her to go to the doctor, but I guess I have to be patient.  Keep your fingers crossed that things will work out for her, will you?  Thanks in advance.  Talk to you lovelies soon.  Oh, and yes, I still have yet to catch up on comments, but thank you all for them and I will catch up and respond to them all very soon.  I promise.  Talk to you later.  Bye for now.

Loves ya,

Don’t you just kind of wish…


we could know the truth?  I won’t go into detail what I believe is the truth, but I will say in some form or way this little girl was robbed of justice.  I have been ignoring the case around her for years, but today paid attention because I had this gut feeling Casey would be found innocent of killing her.  And she was.  And my mom got really upset.  And I needed to be there for her to try to help her calm down.  My mom had sort of adopted Caylee because she was a young innocent baby and because her and I both have the same birthday, and we both have the middle name Marie.  So it just kind of made me my love her even more.  I couldn’t really pay attention to this case because I’m at the point in my life where I want children and couldn’t imagine mom killing her child when so many women and men out there want a child and can’t have one.  Sad smile  So I really hope the jury did not let a guilty woman go free and not give a little girl justice. But…it is what it is.  Life is life.  And sometimes it sucks.  And what really sucks is we will never really know who killed Caylee.  Sad smile

And that’s all that I wanted to talk about today guys.  Just feeling kind of blah.  I’m going to go back to working on my novel.  Still working on the outline some.  I should be in full force writing within a day two.  Here’s hoping.  Fingers crossed
