Medical Marijuana,pizza, art and smoothies!

Hey people!

I hope that you had a great weekend. It truly seems as if time just flies by doesn’t it!?

It’s beautifully sad and amazing all in one to me. I wonder what it would be like if we could press a button and make everyday perfect? I don’t know if I’d like that sort of life too much. Would you? If not, etc. I’d love to hear your thoughts! Please share them in the messages.

I’m not saying that life probably wouldn’t seem perfect if the correct person were found. At the same time that would be a facade in a way because no life is perfect. That is why I don’t date or one of the reasons anyway. I don’t need the hassle. I may change my mind one day, but right now… I’m most interested in creating art to help others.

I sound odd I know, but I wouldn’t want everything perfect anyway. That is probably good because every business owner knows that when you are working on your business, there is no way of living the easy life. That makes me think is there really an easy life anyway? Everyone has something to deal with in life. It’s just how they choose to deal with it.

  Anyway, nothing is impossible, which leads to a piece that I will share with you all. As many of you know I am a proud medical marijuana advocate.

I want to make works showing my love of helping others with awaress. Right now, I am working on making marijuana leafs to cut out that I will later put on some of my new canvases to promote medical marijuana!

I’m thinking of adding JFK in them seeing as how he took Medical Marijuana while president! I find that and the many things that he stood up for amazing and very commendable!

Here are a few pictures of what I am working on.

The Thanks that I added into this is to anyone who helped me in any way.

The book in the background is Judgment Detox by Gabrielle Bernstein! I’ve been keeping an eye on Gabrielle and have been amazed by her teachings. She is working with the wonderful Marie Forleo at the moment. I will be in B School this year studying as usual. Only this time I get to study with Gabrielle as well. 🙂 I’m looking forward to that for sure. So many wonderfully talented females.

This was taken during National Pizza Day!!! I don’t know about you all, but I absolutely love pizza! This was a Papa Murphy’s pizza with Daiya cheddar cheese! Vegan pizza of course.

Lastly, I wanted to talk a bit about my smoothies. I have been neglecting my smoothies and it’s not because I do not intend on getting back to them. I guess I just got kinda stuck with not making them. They DO have ALOT of healthy  benefits and I will get back to them in time.

As many probably know I want to put a book of smoothie recipes together. I first started following the wonderful Kris Carr in 2015. Her works taught me the healing that can be found in smoothies. To read more about Kris Carr please go to: www.kriscarr.com

I was also rather excited this week when finding out that Rita Wilson has started watercolours!!! You go girl. 🙂 Watercolours are so hard. I was very impressed seeing that she is working on them.

As many may know I already love her music. I love her acting as well, but the main things are music, the fact that she’s working on visual art, and the fact that she is not scared to stand up for what is right!!! I just find that astounding personally.

  Anyway, I hope that you all have a wonderful week!!

Namaste,

Angela

Fear, challenges, paintings!

I hope that everyone had a wonderful weekend!

I worked on a digital piece that I wanted to share with you! I hope that you like it!

Wall1

Alot of things happened in my life that are unknown. Someone posted about the unknown and it has made me think what is the meaning of the unknown to others?

  • What does the unknown mean to you? Please leave a message and let me know. 🙂 I love reading others opinions.

I get the feeling that many know something is there, but wonder what. I wrote something in response to a post of what my religion is.

My religion is unknown…I choose not to title it.

The reason why is not because I do not believe in anything, but actually the opposite. It’s because I DO believe. I believe in every single person on this earth. I believe that although the Church helps people know that it’s good to believe, respectfully it has also taught alot of things that caused arguments, fights, wars, etc. etc. That still happens to a point. If people figure out the inner beauty that we each have, they will have nothing to fight about.

In my belief, people came up with every religion that there is though. The unknown that worked through those who created religions, etc. was forgotten by some.

Instead those people were turned into saints that people worship.That is absolutely beautiful to a point because it does help some have something to hold onto in hard times.  At the same time, the unknown that worked through them was forgotten. That unknown can work through each of us. We simply need to let it, instead of fear it. We also need to totally understand that not one of us is 100% God. We are all only parts of God and can learn from each-other. We all create God.

When it comes to the unknown, no person on earth has control over it. I personally believe that it’s best to fully trust the unknown and allow it to take control.

  I find many things in religions seem more beautiful then words can fully express. I went to Church for many years, and often sang in the choir. I highly respect the Church and applaud it for being there for people.

I think people often have this feeling, etc. that they must go to Church because if they don’t what will people think right? Who will vote for them, etc.? Well the thing is…that’s not what Church is meant to be about.

         What people are starting to do by standing up is exactly what Church is about. It’s about helping those who truly need it and being a voice for the voiceless! That change may be happening slowly, but you can choose to think of the things in life that no doubt still need changing or you can think of the fact that people are working on changing them today.

I applaud each and everyone who helps others and send them love.

I have to admit that I believe we are all on different levels of understanding the unknown. Some of the comedians that I’ve dated in my past were what some would consider mistakes, but I actually think of them as learning lessons that helped me be who I am today.

I have a couple works to share with you all!!!

Here is a  #weeklychallenge that I did. The theme is wizards! My friend Christy Illustrates challenged me to create it.

I made a female wizard to represent all of the strong, amazing females who have inspired me. I simply can’t name them all but I will name one and that’s Marie Forleo. At the end of her posts she always ends with the world needs that special gift that only you have and people that’s so true! The world DOES need that special gift that only YOU have. Remember what you add to this world..remember how beautiful that is.

Wizard Challenge

I looked for a sketch that I made years ago, but couldn’t find it. Due to that I felt as if I lost one of my babies.  I’m not sure if other artists feel that strongly about their art? They may…who knows! Please let me know if you do though. I would love not feeling alone in that!

New Babies

Anyway, these are my new babies!!! Heaven on earth. Colour me excited. Watch my channels to find out what they will be!!!!


Namaste

Update!!

I hope that everyone had a wonderful weekend! I know that I haven’t posted in awhile, so you all may be wondering there. To update you all  on what I have been up to I wanted to share what I did last weekend!

I followed some advice that quite honestly I’ve been ignoring for sometime. I took a small break to visit The Savannah Children’s Theatre! I went to see The Hunchback of Notre dame after finishing my artwork of course! I’ll share it with you all later in this post. Here is a photo that I took with the lead Brandon Kaufman. I also saw some talented young actors, etc. so contact me if you would like suggestions for commercials, etc. 😉

When you wear this woven band, you hold the power of peace in your hand.

photostudio_1517264151394

This is the mixed media piece that I was working on before the show!

You can also see the making of it a bit in my previous post! This was mainly recycled things. The eyes are magazines believe it or not. The peace sign is a cd covered in tissue paper and painted with acrylic paints.

I haven’t forgotten about my book, so no worries and I haven’t given up on smoothies! I absolutely love them and will get back to them later!! How could I not!?

Right now I am also working on a challenge that a friend shared with me!

photostudio_1517266460958

I’ll share more later, although I worn you that it’ll be abstract style as that is what I tend to do.

photostudio_1517166367421

I’d like to thank those who have helped me turn on the lights to pass on peace. May peace continue to shine on this world!

Namaste

The Holidays and a book review!

Hey peoples!

I cannot believe how time flies, can you? It’s Monday already! I simply can’t believe that.

 I wish to thank those who read my last post. It did means a lot to me!

I’ve thought about my blog a lot and posting has just become more of a chore then it once was.

It used to be more like a diary, only public.

 I didn’t realise that it was public at the time as I had not recovered to the extent that I have today.

Yet, it thrived… why probably because I wasn’t worrying about what people would say if I couldn’t post, etc. I was posting for myself, and myself alone.

 Now I realise that I was infact being used as most artists are. At least in my belief they are.

That being so, I have decided to post what I wish, when I wish and not set a certain date. I will most likely post every other week, but I will not promise. Those who truly wish to see what I am up to will keep a eye out. Those who don’t… I truly hope that you find what you are looking for and Namaste.

I’ve been reading A Toltec Wisdom Book The Fifth Agreement with Janet Mills. I’ve decided to write a bit about it.

I absolutely agree with most of it so far and am astounded by it.  It has many absolutely beautiful things noted in it.

Here are some examples:

 *You may say, “What about someone who is physically disabled? Is that person perfect?” Well, according to what you know, that person may be imperfect, but is what you know the truth? Who says that what we call a disability or even a disease isn’t perfect?  Everything about us is perfect, including any disability or disease that we may have. Someone with a learning disability is perfect; someone born without a finger or an arm or an ear is perfect; someone with a disease is perfect.*

*The humans around us tell us what they think we are, but there isn’t a clear mirror to reflect what we are.*

*The reflection appears to be an exact copy of what is real, but the image in the mirror is the opposite of what is real; your right hand is your left hand in the mirror. The truth is always distorted by the reflection*

That only took me forever to figure out, but I figured it out! That in itself is a blessing as some never figure that out. People often are with who they think they know, when the soul is held within.

I cannot truthfully say that I agree with all of it though.

It says *We fall from paradise and go directly to the underworld, to what we call hell. We begin to search for God, we begin to search for our self, because the Tree of knowledge is living our life and our authentic self is dead.*

My thought on this is life can be what you make it.

 I can’t say that I do not believe in heaven or hell. I can say that I believe both are words and I respect every belief that there is based on them. I do not believe that any belief is a lie. I believe it is a stepping stone that some people need. They need to believe differently because they are at different levels of understanding. It’s as simple as that.

I am very spiritual, I believe God is in us all. Some may know I was once in Churches and my father directed choirs for years. I personally believe that was my stepping stone and something that I am forever grateful for.

  I believe that if you harm yourself, or another, you harm a part of God. Everyone does not believe that though and I believe that too is ok.

It also says *You are dead, and that’s the truth. And what is the key to coming back to life? Awareness. When you recover awareness, you resurrect and come back to life.

In the Christian tradition, the resurrection day is when the Christ comes back from the dead and shows his divinity to the world. That’s why you are here: to come back from the dead and reclaim your own divinity.*

I believe that this is almost there but missing one step.

 I do not believe that you have to be dead to reclaim your own divinity.

 I believe if that were true, I would question why we were given this beautiful earth to live on. I think that we can get very close to that understanding when learning how to quiet the mind. I believe that more and more people are starting to figure that out!

In this world, with so many hectic things going on, there are also some who look past the outside and see the beauty of another person. There are messages of peace in this book like the ones speaking of those with disabilities, etc. This is why I highly recommend it! Look past what you disagree about it and read it for what you agree in it. You will not be sorry!

Changing the subject a bit, I’ve thought of my past a lot due to the time of year it is.

I can’t help but look back before I grew up when I was very young.

When I was very young, I lived in Wa. My heart truly belongs there to the mountains and beautiful snow.

The years in Wa. were the poorest ever, but my best.

 Everyone knew everyone and we all helped one another. Everyone knew that they weren’t alone.

I give huge credit to the theatre for helping me not to dwell on my issues growing up but every year the friends that were made in Wa. stayed with us.

As many people know a child does not understand when they are forgotten. Some of my family did forget me.

I cried about that many nights as a child. On top of the huge issues I would later face, I would wonder what I did wrong.

All of my friends in Wa. didn’t forget me though.

Those friends to me are like family, they will always be like family. The place in my heart that they filled, I will never forget nor will I forget the place in my heart that the theatre filled.

Today, I do not see living as wrong if you do it the correct way and do not ignore the ones you love.

As a child I simply did not understand that.

I would watch The Goonies, movies showing areas like that and be right back in Wa.

I could be angry with my family that wasn’t there growing up. I could resent them and let my heart be filled with hate due to the past and the differences of opinions we have. I don’t though. I absolutely love my family. Every single one of them, blood and those who aren’t blood. I am thankful for every situation that they helped me with and simply cannot put my gratitude into words.

I love those who I agree with and those who I disagree with on certain issues.

I choose to look past any disagreements and remember the happy times. I choose to open my heart and let joy in.

I beg each and everyone of you to look in your hearts this holiday season and remember the good times in the past as well.

Ask yourself if you are happier when thinking about the disagreements in your life or when remembering the love that people have given.

I will get back to my art after the Holidays.

Sending you all love. Happy Holidays!

Namaste,

Angela

Strong, Thankful, and the Holidays!

Hey peoples!

It’s amazing that it’s Monday again!

I hope that you all had a wonderful Halloween and an amazing Thanksgiving.

I didn’t get to post showing the pumpkin that my parents made for Halloween, so keep reading, you’ll see it here!

Yes, my parents.

As some of you know I have health issues and have been staying with my parents.

 I create art in order to help create awareness each day in my studio.

 Being an entrepreneur is very hard but it’s 100% worth it to let others know that they can too and not to give up.

My health issues are not the only reason for my staying with my parents.

I also feel absolutely no need to explain myself, epilepsy is a part of who I am and I will not hide it.

Even if it is possible for me to not speak of it today.

That is hiding a part of who I am and I simply will not do that.

I also don’t go to support groups, etc. anymore though and want everyone who knows me to know that.

Although it helps to a point, support groups also help me to dwell on my health issues. I am much more than epilepsy though, as anyone is more than their health.

That is why I simply do not go to support groups anymore.

To live my life, I need to think of the things I can do, not dwell on the things I can’t do.

 I am much more than any of the issues that I stand up for!

  I very rarely have seizures now, and actually take care of my parents a lot today.

Anyone who knew me even partially in high school had to have known of my condition.

It was so bad at that time that I was put in the learning disability wing, because I interrupted classes to often having seizures.

I went to the ER so much they already knew my name when I came and a lot of people go to the ER!

I thank those who helped me, nomatter where it was.

 I’ve blacked out a lot of that time, due to pain but those who stood by me during that time honestly are in my heart forever!

I was watching tv. with my parents the other day and the thought came to me that I didn’t even think I’d last this long. I honestly thought that I would be dead by now.

Community Theatre actually took my mind off of the pain I endured in high school.

I was a lot like Harry Potter waiting for Hogwarts to take him back. I was waiting for the next musical to help me escape into my imagination and there I was usually treated what I thought of as normally.

I wouldn’t suggest a 15yr old going to clubs with drinks, etc. but theatre did indeed save my life.

Some in theatre actually tried to protect me from the night life and the messages in musicals, etc. pulled at my heart strings giving me reasons to go on.

At first I sat in a chair, absolutely hating being there. After time went by I grew to love it though!

That being said, if you knew me and say that it was not obvious of the pain I went through, it will be obvious to me and those who kept me alive that you either suffer from losing your memory or you’re lying.

I wish this for everyone who suffers, myself included.


What happened years ago is indeed in the past, but as any abuse victim knows it will be a part of me forever.

What was done to me was done before there were cops in schools. Yet a few times, others witnessed my being abused. I cannot help but wonder why they did not speak up? I hope that today, kids know better and understand what is right and what is absolutely wrong.

 I was on a medication for my epilepsy that made me lose weight and due to that some thought I was attractive, while others called me carrot legs. Kids can be rather cruel.

Some would grab me between my legs while I was walking to class. The person doing it knew my brother though, so it was not believed when spoken about.

One day while in class, the kid behind me grabbed my arms and held them behind my back while whispering a bunch of sexual things in my ear. The whole class looked on watching and laughing as I was being sexually abused, and the teacher just slept through it all.

 That was not the only abuse that I went through at that time. That was then and this is now though. Still, I am amazed that more stories of abuse can be tied to high school, yet only a couple can by tied to theatre.

I will write the fact that I would stand up to those who harmed others too by saying “Go ahead and hit me. I’ll just have a seizure and sue you.”

I wouldn’t suggest that to those in school today, but I am proud of the younger me for standing up to help others when there were not cops to protect us.

 May I find the strength to forgive each and everyone of my abusers.

Moving on, I have to admit that taking care of my parents is only possible when I am not in my studio, as I work when my health does not bother me. This helps me to cope.

Having a place to stay when my health acts up though and knowing that if I am found on the floor 911 can be called is a plus but due to Cannabis Oil that is very rare!

Anyway, here is the pumpkin!

I did create the collage of this, but Les Taylor carved the pumpkin and helped with most of the decorations.

If interested in my creating a personalized collage for you contact: info@angelasartarea.com

Only contact if you’re serious!

I actually was looking through my past works and found this article from my very first exhibition!

It to me was a stepping stone and a huge reminder of my ability as a artist.

 I have many issues in my life, but none define who I am as a person or my art.

This exhibition was not long after getting out of my wheelchair! I had much more help at the time though.

Creating reminds me that I am not sure what tomorrow will bring. If we are all honest, nobody is sure of that. I am sure that I have pushed back the pain and worked for years doing what I love though.

I am sure that I haven’t been paid for most of it, but I have gained the experience that many are paid for. If others are paid for their experience, why am I considered unworthy of being paid for mine?

If I had a good paying job, I could buy my freedom.

I could afford to live away from this place of abuse and pain. I will one day to because I have earned it.

This is a reminder that I am not less. That I can, you can, we can!

That I am more than my disabilities, that I am more than my sexuality, etc. That my abusers will not win, because I will not give into the pain that they created! I also won’t give in to the pain my conditions created.

I’ve grown up watching as everyone else could do what I couldn’t, and I can choose to dwell on that.

I am not going to say that along with the abuse my high school days gave was easy. I am not going to say that my not being able to audition for certain roles, etc. didn’t hurt. It did!

I’m thankful for some of my past though. It made me who I am today and for that I couldn’t be more grateful. I’m also hugely thankful for all of those who I have run into along the way.

I am one to believe that everything happens for a reason. I truly believe that I was meant to run into each soul that I have, locally and internationally.  Those I have met and those I haven’t met face to face.

I can dwell on the negative things in my life, or I can have the guts to continue creating. I can continue believing that my story can inspire others to go on. That it can let others know not to give up, and that they aren’t alone. I can try for me, to let others know that they can too, to show those who thought I couldn’t just what I can do, and to be a reminder of how much a blessing life is.

 I can realise that even without my being able to audition for certain things, having a history of abuse, etc. there are many in this world who aren’t blessed enough to even have the chances I have had!

 I can let my abusers win, and be in pain forever.

 Or

 I can stay strong, move on and show the world what I’m made of.

I still have bad days, we all do.

 I choose to let others know that they can too and show the world what I’m made of though!

The memories of some people, inspiring words from others, and knowing that I’m saving lives just by continuing to inspire others with my story are what keep me going.

So to each of you who were not silent, thank you for being a part of my life.

The rest, I forgive you because hating you only steals my peace. My peace is the one thing that belongs to me and me alone. I give noone the power to take that away from me.

Last but not least I wanted to post a piece that I made.

2.5″ X 3.5″ and on recycled board as well!

Not every memory is captured on film, but don’t forget it, leaving it to blow away.

We can still hold those memories and words of wisdom in our hearts.

Namaste,

Angela

My Favourite things, and Halloween!

Hey peoples!

 I cannot believe that it’s Monday already!

Add on the fact that it’s only one more day until Halloween and the excitement is beyond words!

Some of my friends have posted some really wonderful things that have to do with Halloween.

I know that some of you may already know about the show I was rehearsing for.

Well, I took so many photos at rehearsals that I simply cannot choose!

That being so, I’m sticking with this one.

It was inspired by Sarah Hagstrom, because that day she wanted people to take pictures showing what they were doing!

 Angela Taylor and Les Taylor

 

I can share some of the photos taken at the show itself though.

Above is a write up about it for those who do not know.

This is one of myself with the wonderfully talented Laura Dutton!

I truly wish that I had more photos to share with you of the cast.

I don’t at the moment though.

I was wonderfully surprised when Kelie Miley came to see the show!

Kelie directed some shows that I was in as a teenager.

Last but not least!

 This is the last song that we sang, along with a work that I will feature again later!

This work was also inspired by my friend Sarah Hagstrom.

Lyrics from Les Miserables, words adapted by Les Taylor and Laura Dutton.

I know that the words are not huge, so here they are.

  • Do you hear the people sing
  • hoping before it gets to late
  • that we will join as one together now and rid the world of hate.
  • Let us lift eachother up
  • breaking the walls that would divide
  • then we shall face the world together as one with pride.
  • We will live at last in brotherhood and never will forget
  • that the history we share won’t have to be one of regret.
  • The hearts of the people don’t have to be broken just yet.
  • Will you join in our crusade?
  • Who will be strong and stand with me?
  • Somewhere beyond your disappointment is a world you long to see.
  • Do you hear the people sing?
  • Say do you hear the distant drum?
  • It is the future that they bring when tomorrow comes.

Here is another work that I made. I hope that you like it.

2.5″ X 3.5″ and on recycled board as well!

I hope that  you all have a fantastic Halloween!

Namaste,

Angela

Vegan, and art!

Hey peoples!

I wanted to share some vegan foods and art with you all this week!

 No worries smoothie fans, I still make a smoothie a day for lunch.

 I will still be sharing future smoothie recipes, in my book.

I just have to share these with you all!

 Starting with vegan pizza of course!

This pizza had mushrooms, onions, bell peppers and black olives from Papa Murphy’s.

Daiya Monterey Jack cheese and sausage from Lightlife was added before baking it. Eating vegan is not only a healthy but so delicious!!!

I hope that these vegan options will be given at pizza takeouts as they are absolutely amazing!!!

I seriously never thought that I would taste sausage again and have NO idea how Lightlife created these. I absolutely hope that more grocery chains will give the amazing options both Daiya foods, and Lightlife foods give!! They are a must for all!

The next vegan dish that I wanted to share is spaghetti with Lightlife veggie meatballs and follow your heart parmesan cheese! This is a must try as well and is absolutely wonderful.

Onto art!!!

Incase you missed my last post… I made this card that was Inspired by Shakespeare’s tale of Pyramus & Thisbe found in Ovid’s Metamorphoses.

The card that I started to create this week may be just as meaningful.

Then again, it may not. Only time will tell.

 These things tend to create themselves in a way.

I have this so far though…

As far as twitch goes. I’ve decided not to go there anymore.

 There are many formats for live tv, twitch is only one of them.

Twitch is more for gamers, and I feel as if I’m taking away from that community more than adding to it.

I may change my mind, but at the moment I do believe that I should stick with blogging and take it a bit slower.

I’ll do live tv. again when I find another format that works for me and I feel comfortable with it.

I have absolutely no doubt in my mind that is in my future though.

I hope that you have a wonderful week!

Thanks for stopping by and hope that you stop by again.

Namaste,

Angela

Recycled Visual Art, Weather and Shakespeare!

Hey peoples!

I hope that you’re having a wonderful monday and have a great week.

In my last post, I shared this..

 

I am sure that you’re wondering about the answer.

Wonderful news!!! The answer is here on my first card!

 

I’ve been reading Asimov’s guide to Shakespeare, and was inspired by Shakespeare’s tale of Pyramus & Thisbe found in Ovid’s Metamorphoses.

I added in the red crosses to say love will save this world by healing it.

 Hate will destroy it.

I think that is a perfect message because of what the story of Pyramus & Thisbe is.

I also added a P for Pyramus and a T for Thisbe.

Although, the story of Pyramus & Thisbe is a bit like Romeo and Juliet, it is not exactly the same.

Still, it’s about forbidden love, which is what Romeo and Juliet is about.

The characters also end up the same as Romeo and Juliet.

I will not write everything about it as to not spoil it for those who may not have read about it.

I found it very interesting though!

The weather is cooling down.

Finally almost time to decorate!

I may incorporate that into my works, I may not.

Only coming back to see what I post will let you know.

Unless you follow me elsewhere of course! Which thank you if you do.

You’ll also see me works on Instagram at https://www.instagram.com/angelasartarea/

and I  also often post on twitter at  https://twitter.com/AngelasArtArea

I would absolutely welcome any new followers on any of my accounts!

My fan page can be found at https://www.facebook.com/AngelasArtArea/

I am not sure about twitch anymore as it is geared towards gamers. I love certain games, but no longer am drawn to them.

I also love my twitch friends, and don’t want to take away from something that helps them.

There are other platforms that are geared towards visual artists. I may try one of them as I do love creating and sharing live so that I can answer any questions, etc.

I have to admit that I’m glad a live audience doesn’t start out of nowhere.

I mentioned rehearsals before. They are going well. 🙂

I am used to being around live audiences.

I just no longer wish to continue being back-stage, as I truly believe there is much more to me.

The fact is also being live on the net is totally different then being live on-stage, live due to a exhibit or posting on a blog.

Being live is new to me, but I want to touch and help create awareness for as many people as possible.

If being live can do that, then being live is what I want to do.

I have not forgotten about ArtCardsUnited or my smoothies.

I’ll share them both in time.

Namaste,

Angela

Family history, stories, Irma and art!

Hey peoples!

There has been so much going on lately.

I do hope that everyone is doing well!

As many of you know Hurricane Irma came here to Georgia. Right when we were getting things back in order after the devastation Hurricane Matthew created too!

I decided to wait it out and went without water, and electricity for a few days.

As many of my followers probably guessed, I lost all food, so had absolutely no smoothies for days.

I was very blessed as it could have been so much worse!

There is believe it or not a beautiful feeling that I get when without power. It’s almost like a memory, which would make sense seeing as when I was younger there were no cell phones, etc.

I was actually talking about that the other day.

On the way here from Seattle, Wa. we drove.

 We being myself, my two brothers, my sister,  my parents, cat and dog.

There was no tv in our van to keep all four kids occupied.

Being the youngest of four kids, I remember very little of that trip. I do remember the trees though.

As soon as we got here that is the first thing that we noticed and the thing that I remember best!

The beautiful trees and the four of us sticking our heads out the window screaming “We’re SOUTHERRRRRNNNN!”

Many of those beautiful trees are gone now, taken by hurricanes.

Sadly trees were not the only things harmed by these hurricanes.

 In Fl. 20 people died due to Irma alone.

After Matthew, there were many without homes, etc. I was blessed then as well.

Above is a collage that I made showing it. A tree hit this house but did not damage my studio/apartment that much.

 Please note this was from Hurricane Matthew NOT Irma! Again, it did not touch my studio/apartment that much.

 I am still working on getting it repaired, as it did crack the ceiling and walls.

My smoothies have been put on hold for the moment.

 No worries people!

I am slowly trying to get back to them.

As for my book, I’m not 100% sure as this completely changed things, but we shall see.

I was also working on a fundraiser for a church next month. That is still underway, as rehearsals are set, etc.

I’m unsure if I can share photos with you all, etc. as I know little about it. I’m sure that I’ll find out in time though and will share if I am able to!

As many of you know Sept. 22nd is the anniversary of my ancestors passing of which I post in memory of her each year.

I’m also trying to get back into creating cards as seen here!

To find out what I will make on them please keep a eye out.

I will be posting that on my blog, instagram, twitter, and my fan page.

Namaste,

Angela

Well, I created a few things this week.
