July 2017

Question; would rather be stuck with your animals at home when it's hot out or be in the air conditioning at work?



As for me? Definitely with the dogs. I know everyone figures well at least it's got air conditioning right? For most people I think that would give a good reason to be at work but I look at those faces and think aw they need me even if it's to just commiserate with them. I think I am ready to start down that road to retirement. My art and crafts call to me more than my need to interact with people. Plus these guys are so much fun who needs people? 

Oh ok I understand you probably think I am a little nuts right about now but let me give you an explanation.

  Number one, dogs love you. Some people should be abandoned at the shelter, then maybe they would appreciate the effort people put in to serving them. Dogs are like you came back oh we are so happy to see you again.  People are like add a little extra for the same price?

Number two,  dogs will go where ever you want. People will meander in your room as if there is all the time in the world, meanwhile your next customer is tapping her foot in the waiting room.

Number three, dogs don't care about anything but play and food oh and where they sleep. People act as if they have been dropped here on earth and you should genuflect. 

Number four, dogs understand when you are having a bad day. Some people have acted like they have never made a mistake and believe that perfection is not only possible but a requirement. 

Overall, people disappoint me terribly. I have seen people who are kind and considerate I only hope that I am appreciative towards the ones who are. Then, as a customer, I hope I make people who serve me smile, happy and hopeful.

smiling face and off to work..... sigh

How are you feeling? Are you ready for shorts and bathing suit season?
Don't worry honey we all feel like we've added some padding. The alternative to living well is well you know so go out and be engaged with life. Do your best to enjoy where you are. Get something that makes you feel comfortable and keep on keeping on.



I love the smell of the roses do the know how the magazine people did it but I loved the smell of the rose catalogue in spring. The promise of a summer bounty of flowers, tomatoes and corn. Mmmmmm

For now I'll have to settle for fruit an vegetables from Felipe's. 

What's your plan for summer? I'm going to start some dog training. Looking forward to getting the doggies back on track. 


So if you're looking to train your doggie or do some creative crafts come over to YouTube and follow me. 
@ Mimi's musings or just saying.

January 2017

Ahh Yes trying to get all the workshops I am involved in up to date and not get sick. TOO LATE.

Yes I got sick and now I am recuperating from the rest day I took and I think that was worse than being sick. My old bones are hurting. ow. So on with the update


First the color of the year! Greenery from Pantone. Beautiful color reminds me of summer grass, spring and bunny rabbits. I didn't get my directions video looking as well as I wanted so I just redirect everyone to someone I know who is awesome at videos. See the video



So did you pick your word for the the year? Your saying your intentions your good grief with all of that I had no time to get my video's done. I really have a hard time choosing those things. Like what do I want my theme to be? I don't know I am just trying to be creative then everyone wants intentions. I just want to complete everything I started. What is your, STOP! I just want to be taken as a serious artist to make some money out of selling my creations. Is that too real? Why do I have to spend time getting intentions done. My intention is to not have to go to work outside my art shop. To be able to buy things with out using a credit card. Or if I do use a credit card I want to be able to pay it off with the money I make selling the stuff I made.That's my goal.

I am not being hostile I am being realistic. That just doesn't sound as fru fru as it should. It's very in your face and people don't like that. I don't know how I would react if someone put that out there in a video. It's almost shocking. Some people would be insulted because it sounds like I am putting them down. I really don't mean to I am just saying that in my head I don't have that I have to wait to hear what every one else says and copy them because the truth is I don't have visions of sugar plums in my head. Oh I know how to fake it but the reality is I strive to do what I need to to get to the place where every one else is. I have to struggle every time we have a zen mantra going before we can start the process of learning.

I  was ready to learn before I signed up. I want to be organized I want to have creative journals and beautiful things to look at but I can't just vomit them out the beginning of the year.

Whats my word of the year? BE just be. Just be me be creative be aspiring be annoying be loud be yourself.
