Rantings of a disorganized artist!!!

Good Morning..Today I wanted to give you a heads up. I am reorganizing and shuffling the blog in hopes of making more room for other works of art aka "masterpieces"!!!

I have stepped down from some of my demands for no other reason than overwhelmed family loses.
It has been a bad winter and all we can do at this point is breath. On another note I have stepped into a chair position as my neighborhood HOAC. And have had my back side shown in the paper shaking the mayoral candidates hand ") What a giggle!
With fingers crossed I am hoping to have the blog finished and done by late April. Love you all and thank you so much for your visited support ")
