I actually have more time to post now...

I'm loving my new banner! I changed the banner at my Etsy shop too. It all feels very very spring time. Had a good weekend. I made baked chicken curry last night. You just take chicken breasts and douse them with lemon juice, olive oil, salt, pepper, and hot sauce. Then you take curry powder and rub them down really good until they're that beautiful yellow/gold curry color. Then you let them sit as long as you can so they can marinate. It would be really good if you have one of those flavor injector things so you could put all the yummy curry flavor inside the chicken too. Or you could let it marinate overnight....I didn't have time for all that lol. Then put it in the over at 400 for about an hour (these were bone-in breasts) and voila, an easy supper. I made mashed potatoes and corn with it. It was quite good.

I have to tell this funny story, my daughter Chloe has the job of changing the kitty litter. This new kitty litter we have is very sandy and goes everywhere in the laundry room when she changes it. So I told her to take everything outside and change it this time. So she proceeds to take the litter box and the bag of kitty litter outside, changes it and puts everything up. WELL, apparently, the bag of kitty litter had a hole in it because there is kitty litter all over the laundry room, a trail of it leading through the kitchen, to the foyer and out the front door LOL. So much for that plan.

I want to talk about some things I bought from Etsy and the awesome sellers I bought them from. I ordered some make-up from Mixology , it was the "White Girl Sampler Pack". That way you can try a lot of different foundation colors before committing to one. I have to say it's awesome. I've never used mineral make-up before and it lasts forever! Even at my job where I'm on the go all day and have zero time to freshen up, it's good till the end of the day. I ordered some eye shadow from her also, it's just as long lasting. It came with this luscious freebie ~ some lip balm in what smells/tastes like chocolate mint. Love It! It feels all tingly when you first put it on and anything that makes me tingly, well, that's a definite winner :).






I have some new art in my shop, so here it is :







There's a wide variety this week as you can see lol. I love the carnival ones, and of course Astro Boy. The sky one is called "Morning Has Broken" , I think it's really pretty. The clown on is called "Goin' to the Fair 1952" , it's meant to look very weathered and old. The one at the lake is "Vintage Vacation Photo", somebody spilled their martini on it lol.

I just found out about a new website that helps musicians, artists, writers etc. to sell their work online without the need to go through record labels, publishing houses and all that stuff... It’s called CybaSumo.com – you sign up for free and they give you a free store on their website to sell your work through. They also offer a software widget that you can put on your myspace or facebook (or blog) to help you sell your work directly to your friends. They just started up this week, it’s probably worth checking out…
