RIP Kenda

RIP Sweet Bear

I dunno what to think or say, but I'm just so sad she's died. Really going to miss going to see her at the Ecotarium. I will just try to think of the good times seeing her. Here are a few of my photos from my flickr stream of Kenda in better times.

RIP Kenda, you will be sorely missed.

If You Don't Have a Dog.....

Then Go Get One! Do it now!






DOGS are AWESOME! My dogs have several types of barks that they do. I've been watching, listening & learning from them for some time. When we moved here to this podunk hood' some of their behaviour changed a bit. (I can say Podunk, it's OK, I live here. We even have a Podunk Street, nearby.) But I've heard their UPS man bark. Their next door neighbor's are walking by with their dogs, bark and I've noticed each type of bark is a little bit different. The other morning I heard a weird bark from both of my dogs. Sounded almost panicked to some degree.

I came home the other morning & my dogs were barking LIKE MADCAP CRAZZZZZZAY In the house. Even the black lab cross was going nutso--I thought they must have got bit by a rabid (rabid, not rabbit) skunk or something. WHOOOEEEE Nutso barking! Before I could figure out what was going on inside the house, my nextdoor neighbor came over. She ended up explaining to me why my dogs were going crazy in the house barking. She said: "I was working on my computer, and saw a shadow pass by the window & thought it was one of your dog's lose or something. Looked out & no it was a pretty big bear walking by the window. Saw him walk into your yard, the next neighbor's house & then wander down the street to the other neighbor's.. and then I couldn't see him anymore." She was freaked out a little bit. She's heard a few stories of other folks in the area having seen and or heard him. Neighbor's up the hill from here have horses & sometimes the bear spooks the horses & makes them jump around & bray in the middle of the night. One neighbor reports hearing the bear whacking at his barn's door. Like he was trying to get inside.

Duke Gromit Odie O'Connor

So that MADCAPPPP CRAZZZZY barking I mentioned?? Member that? That was my dogs warning me that there was a bear outside, sniffling around. I know my dogs 'love me' but they are fed solely by me, with only small nibbles & cookies that are given to them by my sons. With the occasional pizza crust handed to them by my husband. But the main amount, the bulk of the food they get, I cook & prep it for them. Then hand it to them to eat. So without me, in a dog's mind--they'd be shit out of luck. So they are both very very overprotective of me, a lot more here, than where we lived in the past (city/ city) here they won't let me out of their sight, I had long been wondering why. "Well sheeeeit, Floyd, looks like you done figured it out. BEAR in tha hood' freaks the dog's out." ;)

Wow. I'm impressed & very thankful to my dog's for taking care of me, their meal ticket. Even if I'm just a meal ticket to them, which I'm guessing I'm not exactly. I mean my Chihuahua always wants to sleep by my feet & sleeps behind me on my computer chair (right this very minute) sure it might be chilly out today, and she's staying warm behind me, but it's cause she loves me. I know it is.

Massachusetts ROCKS!

On June 1 2011 we had a devastating tornado in Western/Central Massachusetts.

Dark clouds

The very next day, folks began getting together to help those in need! I LOVE Massachusetts! I'm on an homeschool mailing list & folks are pouring in with help & donations! The letter is below:

Dear Friends

I know we have all been touched in one way or another by the events of June 1.

I spent this morning at Hitchcock Academy in Brimfield. When I walked in the door I was overwhelmed and in awe by the amount of clothing, shoes, bedding and toy donations that have been given by neighbors to help neighbors impacted by the June 1 tornadoes . As I sorted clothing and organized packages of new underwear and socks, cars and trucks continued to pull up and the donations continued to pour in. Hitchcock Academy truly is a COMMUNITY Center.

HOW YOU CAN HELP:

-GET THE WORD OUT to all those in need. Hitchcock Academy in Brimfield will be open this week Monday through Friday 9 AM to 9PM. Families can come in or send a neighbor, relative or friend to pick up pillows, towels, blankets, shoes, crayons, toys, bubbles or even just a shirt or new pair of underwear or socks.

-VOLUNTEER to help at Hitchcock. Call Sue Gregory at 413 245-9977. Some jobs are best done by adults but some can be accomplished with children.

At this time additional donations of goods are not needed .

In ending, I wanted to share with you my experience and to thank all who have donated, and Hitchcock and their staff for opening their doors to be a center for the community.


If you need more info please contact Stacia at scaplanson at gmail dot com

Cedarbrook Learning Connections

ROY B GIV

Now I'm doing my small itty bitty part & passing this onto you. I'm also sell photos in my Etsy shop. Now until July 1st 50% of all sales will go to help the people affected by the June 1 Tornados. I'll donate by way of buying items to donate to Hitchcock Academy for dispersal that way, or directly to the Red Cross & let them pass the money onto folks who need to rebuild. I myself had a fire when I was young newlywed & we lost everything. The Red Cross was great giving us a place to stay, and a coupon voucher to get anything we needed. I'd love to be able to give back & help them out!

Looking for a good car.. Lemons need not apply.

HAH HAH HAH! This just made my day! "Car performs beautifully with good acceleration and crisp handling. No funny noises in this one." Wonder what happened to the 'other' one with the noises??? EH? TY used car dealers--for the chuckle today!

And now for something completely un-car related, mainly cause I need something pretty & cars in general are irritating me so fully right now, I'm considering moving to Boston so I can ride the T instead. Without any further ado, some of my most recently captured photos:

Unfurling

Ahhhhh the sights of the country in spring. Guess I'm still looking for a car. :/

Thanks for looking, Heather :)

NEW Listing in my Shop



A hyacinth macro that I shot just this afternoon. New in my etsy shop. Lots of purples and blues... with a touch of pizazz & black border edited around the edges to give it some interest.

Enjoy! Thanks for stopping by, Heather :)

Quote of the Day!

Cherry Babay


“Have you ever been in love? Horrible isn't it? It makes you so vulnerable. It opens your chest and it opens up your heart and it means that someone can get inside you and mess you up. You build up all these defenses, you build up a whole suit of armor, so that nothing can hurt you, then one stupid person, no different from any other stupid person, wanders into your stupid life...You give them a piece of you. They didn't ask for it. They did something dumb one day, like kiss you or smile at you, and then your life isn't your own anymore. Love takes hostages. It gets inside you. It eats you out and leaves you crying in the darkness, so simple a phrase like 'maybe we should be just friends' turns into a glass splinter working its way into your heart. It hurts. Not just in the imagination. Not just in the mind. It's a soul-hurt, a real gets-inside-you-and-rips-you-apart pain. I hate love.”

Neil Gaiman

My Photography As A Mantle Banner

Three 5x7 Butterfly Photos turned into a mantlepiece decoration

It gives me great pleasure seeing these three butterfly photos together like this. When I was shooting them & watching the Monarch flit & flutter & flirt with me. ;) This is how in my mind's eye, I saw them being hung. On a mantle as a banner or even hung on a wall in triptych form. It's really fitting having them flit on a piece of ribbon like this. I thank Heather of the Bluewindmill for graciously sharing these photos with me. What a lovely setup she has on her mantle, I think these really go well here. Lovely!


Mantle Piece Decoration

Thank you, Heather for sharing these with me! I love it!!

XOXO--Heather :)

Making Vegan Yarn

Whatcha Doin?

To answer the age old question of "Whatcha doing?" This is the answer. I'm making my own vegan yarn. It was dyed by Spinup, but I'm doing the spinning with my new to me drop spindle. Oh so fun! Well, I do have a thing for monotony. IE: Married to the same man for 15 years, making each special moment with him, special, different & exciting.

Anyways, before I go too far off the clickety clack track, it's a very simple process spinning the fibers into yarn. Not that hard at all. It's really fun! Check out this video, she's doing it with wool, but it's essentially the same thing.



The only reason I don't use wool yarn, is cause there is so much 'I don't know' about it. I don't know how the animals are treated & or if it comes from New Zealand where they do mulesing. If you have a weak stomach, don't google mulesing. Just take my word for it, you'd not wish it on your worst enemy, let alone a gentle lamb. Anyways, this is not meant to be a political speech. If you want that, hit up my vegan blog.


Let's look at the banana wool again instead:

100_7536

Here it is on the drop spindle. This was fibers, I could use it for felting or needle felting, but I'm fooling around with it & making it into yarn.

100_7533

Oh & again with this image. Ohhh just look at all that colour!!!!!!

100_7535

It's so pretty! So lovely, I could eat it with a spoon. ;) Well, no not really. I just say that to my sons all the time, when they are being cuddly or cuteh. I call it a Heatherism. I can't wait till the yarn is spun, then I can begin thinking of what to make it into. I'd like to go small with this selection of yarns & make some small, fun pins & maybe necklaces, cause I think this will give me the most pleasure, making small things & passing them to friends & family, so they can get some enjoyment too.

Lovely lovely lovely.. Oh & yeah, I'll be buying some more soon. So you'd better get to her shop & quickly if you know what's good for ya!!

Thanks for stopping by! XOXO Heather :)

Boy Troubles..

Rain Drops Keep Falling On My Head


Well, it's what it feels like anyways. I'm only partially breaking up with flickr tho. I still will use it for sharing with friends & family & a couple of other features. But I will not be sharing my images there publicly any longer. Mainly this copyright discussion on etsy got me thinking, that's not as safe as I had once thought it to be. Granted, maybe I'm anal. Maybe my images aren't THAT good, that someone would 'borrow' or steal them for a IPAD or other device's APP. But, I LOVE my images. I adore them. I will share them of course, as long as folks can follow the rules & understand that I'm the only one who will make any money off of them. Not to sound greedy or anything. I'm not that way, at all. I trade my images a lot of the time with folks & I'm very happy (as long as Etsy gets their percentage) to continue doing that now & forever.

But no more potential for someone to rip me off. Cause that'll piss a girl right off. Trust me, you don't wanna see me mad. ;) I'm looking into setting up my own website & hoping to find something to be able to share & allow comments on my photos with, on the website. We shall see. Gotta be something out there, right?

Music Saves the Day!

Got up weeeeally early this morning to exercise, gee fun! It actually went a lot better, than I thought it would. Thank you @LATE JULY for saving my workout! I even did some stretches, yoga and also hit that wretched treadmill too.

Yippeee! My legs are feeling like jelly!

This song, (below) is one, that I listened to. You really NEED the whole album tho, it ROCKS! I was lucky enough to hear the EXPLICIT VERSION of the song below! LOVE IT! Oh I LOVE it so much more for the explicit, since that's the way I talk.. well, when, I'm mad I do anyways. Right hubby? He nodded yes, as he recalls our once yearly, annual blowout very well. Like I'd let him forget it!! Not evaar!!

It's a pretty awesome album too! Love it! I have her previous album as well, it's wonderful too. Check her out over on YouTube!




Since her song got me thinking about it..
General things I know about guys, women, life, and relationships in general.



1. Men don't change.

2. Men are slower mentally & physically, than women to mature.

3. What you see, is what you get. So choose the finest specimen you can find. Seriously, ladies be very very picky! Listen to Indiana Jones; "CHOOSE WISELY"

(I've got a theory going, if you're choosier, there will be less garbage out there.)


4. Don't expect miracles. Or beds of roses. Those are just movie props!

5. Men are not women. Some of course, are great communicators, but most aren't. Please clearly & calmly explain your thoughts, wants, desires & feelings. "Be up front in the very beginning." IE: SWF seeks cool MUSIC loving guy who MUST love Kids & Dogs.

6. You do not need a man to complete you. That's just your tick tick, tock clock talking to you.

7. Don't listen to advice from girlfriends, *unless they have a SUPER, AWESOME, wonderful husband & relationship with him. Cue to fade in @ Photo of my SupER AweSOME HUBBY who for some odd reason after almost 20 years together, still effing adores me & thinks I'm hott! (He's only slighly insane, but I'm not going to wake him up! SHHH!)

Hubba hubba


8. When dating or wanting to have a relationship with a man, or woman for that matter, it's only about YOU TWO, not what everyone else *sees* or *thinks* about your relationship. It's YOU & HIM or YOU & HER against the world. Think of it like you two are a super duo superhero team, not you VS someone to manipulate to your wishes.


9. Relationships end. Sometimes it's inevitable. I think the younger you are when you begin dating, the more likely you will end relationships & move on because they just don't go the same way as you any longer. (that guy I dated who liked Baseball. I hope he's happy & adores his baseball loving wife, that just isn't me. I'm sorry.)

10. Don't date someone *JUST* cause they think you're pretty. Chances are it won't work.

11. Don't date someone who doesn't agree with your religion or beliefs.

12. Don't let people try to change your religion or beliefs, so they can date you.

13. Looks are not everything.


14. Find someone who is a little bit like you are. Sure, if you're a stubborn old coot' (like me) and they are too (hubby) sometimes you two will butt heads. But that's OK cause Beavis & Butthead are pretty funny at times. Fights do happen, there is no happily ever after, that is just a Disney Flick. Remember that. Repeat as needed.

15. If it's meant to be, nothing, no one can break you up, even if they try.

Thank you, that is all. Please leave your questions in the comments bin. I will file them & answer the ones, I can. I am not a matchmaker, nor am I a wizard. But Love is Magic!

--Heather :)

Update on the Sprouts..

Sprouting..


Aren't they cute? They are growing super fast! I have been helping them along a little bit too, I have a heating pad under my SCOBY and I placed these guys on a tiny corner of it at night, so they can keep all warm & snuggily. Then, during the day, they are sitting on my sitting on a sunny window sill enjoying the sunlight.

I wish I was this cool & could make these glass terrarium necklaces, but I'm not. This girl is tho. You can see my last posting & learn more here.

XOXO Heather :)

FEESH!

FEESH is FISH, in my silly language. So happy with how this photo came out!

I'm a Winner!

The other day I was notified by the BIGBADARTCOLLECTIVE that I had won their blog giveaway! Yes I had to all caps that. Such a cool name! Yippeeee! I was so excited! YES, I am a WINNER! I always knew I was. ;)

BlackbirdandPeacock

This is what I won! I won a mini moleskine & a postcard with little hearts all over it, from BlackbirdandPeacock! SO CUTE! Check out that super awesome biz card too! NICE!

My Very First Moleskine

I have since written in the moleskine & doodled in it! LOVE it. I have always wanted a moleskine. They are so nice to draw in. Now I know just how cool they are up close & personal! The pencil just glides on the paper.. and you want to draw in it more, and more. Of course, I chose one with little hearts all over it. Since the 7th grade I've been in love with hearts & drawing hearts & coloring hearts.

So very sweet! <3 it! Thank you so much, Hope!

The Hysteria Surrounds Me..

and I don't even have to leave home..

Twinkle dog2

Let it be known: I am completely safe here in the boonies. Completely and 100,000% protected. My fair self is completely safe, even from the UPS man bringing me a mere package. My kids & dogs take this way too seriously. The dog wouldn't let me grab her/get in front of her, when I tried to take the package from the UPS driver and simutaneously get her to stay back. She ran out barking & possibly swearing at him in her native tongue. Her fur was up on her back & she sounded serious. Cripes sakes, dog. Ridiculous! Plus add in the comic genius factor of my two kids one wielding a stick & the other with two snow shovels. Running around in the yard & keeping the UPS man from getting anywhere possibly near me, just to hand me the package. Which incidentally was dog food. I mean WHY are we trying to keep this nice guy away & from giving us DOG FOOD? Huh, doggies? WHY? Should have seen the UPS man using his signing pad like a shield.. I bet he's done that before. I asked my son why was he acting so strangely. He told me this: "Just making sure there was no funny business." {Slaps forehead} I guess my son takes the NO Talking or going near strangers thing seriously. Way too seriously.

But I'm very safe. So do be warned. PLEASE call first! I'll cage the animals. ;) Oh & yes, sometimes I do get dressed before noon.

--Heather :)

P.S: am I the only person who always says THANKS & I'm sorry each and every time someone delivers me a package? Unbelievable!

WAY cuter than Kawaii

Look what showed up the other day. I found it in my mailbox & immediately was in LOVE! In love love love! Oh so, sweet love. I love glass & the little seeds. OH MY this is sooo cute. It sprang into my head, it's cuter than KAWAII!

WAY cuter than Kawaii!

What is it? It's a glass terrarium that will house some weeeeee tiny plants. (Yes I love the word weee, almost to excess!) I will wear it around my neck & bring the weeetle garden with me everywhere I go. Oh yes, I'm talking baby talk again. Ruh roh. I can't help it. It's so cuteh! Watch out, she's going LOLCATZ! But look at that wee little seed holder!!!!!!!!! Oh I can't stand it! Adorable! She even made me a little tiny seed planting tool to match it! So dang cute! I haven't been this excited, since my Birthday! Well no. No one has ever given me something this COOL! This is hands down the best present ever. Perfect for a person who loves to garden or enjoys plants! It's so easy to plant the seeds & then enjoy the sprouts!


What's Cuter than Kawaii?


I have added water & the seeds to it, so now I get to wait. Wait wait wait wait, for them to sprout. But look what will happen, when mine sprout!!!!!! I stole this picture from her store, to show you the growing seeds.



Now how did I get this weetle cutie to come live with me, you ask? I was lucky enough oh, so lucky to be the tester, the pilot person to check the necklace out for a friend. Her shop is here. My friend, Abigail makes these adorable & gorgeous lampwork necklaces all on her own! She's a really nice person too! Amazing stuff, what an artist! Check them out! Do it now! GO!

Seriously adorable!! AND bonus here: MADE IN MASSACHUSETTS!

Wicked Adorable!

Check out her Facebook page too. Such pretties!

kNiTtInG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Step Two


OK so knitting has been a tedious process, at least with the knitting needles, for me. A royal pain in the... yeah, let's not go any further with that thought train, mmm, OK! I have no troubles with the straight looms by Knifty Knitter and I now have a KnittingBoard sock loom & that seems to be going swimmingly, so far, at least with the easy straight edge knitting stitches, I haven't progressed to the purling or any of the more complicated stitches, as of yet. I also have the round looms from knifty knitter, and that is AOK as well. I do have more dropped stitches with this round loom, than the others, but once off the loom, the items are still usable. Well, the dog is warm, anyways & the kids LOVE their cowls. I even made a skirt from the straight knitting looms, so I have the idea down. I had totally given up hope on learning to knit, with knitting needles. I even joined a group & they all tried to no avail. I also paid for a lesson & no go there either.

Then one of my friends offered to trade with me some knitting needles & a SCOBY for some of my artwork. Since she had made them herself, how do I say no? I just love handmade items! I appreciate people who DIY, in all areas. Well, how do I say no to that? How do I not try to learn then?

Made it to step 2.

Well if your me, you try, try again, even tho other tutorials and people had failed. I again turned to youtube. I had had a lot of luck with this guy's tutorials for the looms. So I figured, if I could figure out the round & straight looms, and even the flower looms, I should be able to find a youtube vid for knitting itself, and I did. I found many many many of them, and not one of them showed it to me in quite the right way. Until, I found this wonderful set of videos by How Cast. Kind of reminds me of my fav site, how things work, a little bit, except it's lacking in the dryness & it is a little bit more interesting & expressive.




Isn't she cute? I love her!


So far with these videos, I've managed a slipnot, which I already learned with the looms, and I can cast on & I'm sorta in the middle of moving the stitches from the left needle to the right. In my glee I logged into ravelry the other day & found I had messages waiting. Lo & behold there is a place closer than the Worcester knitter's group I found, that knits together each week. I will try that place next week & see if we can progress some more.

But yay! I'm finally getting it!

--Heather :)

We Made Paper..

Now we just need to figure out how to make rocks & scissors!! ;)

What's that in your blender?


This is step 1, cut paper into shreds, add to blender, wet to soften & blend into a slurry.

Paper Slurry & Natural Food Dye

This is actually red, but I took the colour from the photo, since the flash made the tin-foil yellow.

This is step 2: Slurry of paper pulp & organic all natural eco geeko food dyes, spread out on a pan lined with tin-foil. I used a folded up towel to press the excess water from the slurry.

Rustic Recycled Paper

Sorry for the crappy photos. This was a science experiment with my kids, just to see what paper was like when we made it ourselves, by hand & to learn that paper does grow on trees, but still not good to waste it.

Step three: Bake in a 200*F oven for about 30 minutes give or take. Let cool, then peel off the tin-foil slowly. As for using it for anything... well we need to get a better way of pressing the water from the slurry, hint hint, @ MOM! (She has a paper press, and I want her to lend it to me, indefinitely, as I'd love to make paper like this on a regular basis.) I might use it with some thick markers for labels in the raised garden beds this spring, or perhaps as tags for presents. Next time I want to put some seeds into the paper & make seed bombs or seed gift tags or something, I think these would be fun for the kids to use & gift to friends & family.

XOXO Thanks for stopping by, Heather :)

Purple Tulips.. Spring is on the Way!

Purple Tulips

Sometimes treasuries on Etsy are art in of themselves. When that happens, I try to post them here, so you & I can enjoy them. This one is especially beautiful, IMO. Just so wonderful. I am truly honored to have my photo featured in it. The actual treasury is here, if you care to view it closer or purchase something. WOW! I love that bag! I also am a big admirer & fan of other people's photography. I get inspired by it, and come up with new & fascinating ways to shoot when I'm out the next time. If you like you can fan my fanpage & stay up to date on any of my new treasuries & new listings on Etsy, here. My shop is here as well.

All my best. Thanks for stopping by, Heather :)
