Miss Karma was reaching for something under the dresser...and dozed off--ROFL!
She always hears the camera and me moving around, tho.
She dozed off again after I took the pictures--hehe!
I did think of something quiet to do. Got all set up to work on some watercolor bookmarks. Decided to try my watercolor block that I never use.
Several years ago Leah, Ariel, Aaron, and I made some as a craft project. We laminated them and sold them at craft tables. I only saved two of mine and they are my favorites.
Anyways, it took forever for me to incorporate the gold particles that had sunk to the bottom of these jars.
I was shaking and shaking. Finally took out some popsicle sticks and stirred--and thinned out the Winsor Newton gold with water. They were a project onto themselves. :)
Decided that this is the perfect way to finally play with all the tiny palettes that I had been putting together for a couple of years with all the different brands of watercolor paints--tada! Anyways, I am now all set up to play...when I work up to it--hehe!
I spent a lot of last two nights watching the end of season four of Supernatural--wow! Now I have to wait for season five to come out on DVD to find out if the devil has been set loose from hell!! ;) ****
And I have the first DVD of season two of True Blood to watch. Happened to return a DVD when the second season first came out. I imagine I'll be on the waiting list for a while before I get the rest of them. Got to find out who was dead in that car...;)
Caroline comes tonight, so I will have to set the alarm so I will be up--hehe! These crazy hours! *shakes head* We have the annual apartment inspection on Thursday. Just found the notice taped to my door when I went to check the mail in the middle of the night. So--good thing Caroline comes tonight. It will be all nice and clean for the inspection. :) Not that it ever looks too much different around here--hehe!
Well, it's about lunchtime for me--ROFL! Have a good day!! :):)

  1. Oh my, you got a whole lot of shaking goin' on!


    Silly Karma... she really needs a pep pill or to start drinking caffienated Coke.

  2. Glad you found something quiet to do.

    Hope you manage to get up ok for Caroline coming later.

    That so funny your kitty falling asleep like that LOL

    Your little craft table with everything on it looks so nice, my little closet that supposed to hold my yarn in tubs looks like skeins of yarn just exploded all over the place LOL Drives hubby nuts :o) I really do need to get in there and work on it.

    Good luck with the inspection, my daughter has those also and she really has to clean her place whew that child keeps house like she used to keep her room and thats not good lol

    Have a great day!

  4. I just popped in to say "Hi".


  5. Your table looks so nice with everything all lined up and neatly placed. I can just see you now sitting there shaking and shaking and shaking. I hope they mixed up well after all of that shaking and stirring.

    Loved the Karma pics. :)

  6. Your art table looks so neat and organised, Rita. I'm keen to see your the tiny palette boxes!

    I just started watching Season Two of True Blood and I know who was dead in the lips are sealed! ;)

  7. Iggy--Hi back, mister! :) Hey--caffeinated water for fat, housecats--now that's an idea--ROFL!! I'm not sure I'd be able to stand Karma on caffeine, tho--hehehe! ;)

    Toriz--turned out I got a cat nap--hehe! I'm having fun with the WC bookmarks. :)

    Lynn--I fully admit to being a bit OCD, tho. Leah (my DIL) is, too. That's why we get along so well crafting together. I was a neatnik as a teen, even! I may not have dusted, but everything had its place. :)

    AlceKay--It took forever to incorporate the gold again--especially the Winsor Newton and the green one as they are over 20 years old now. I'm surprised they still worked okay. Amazing what a little elbow grease can do--tada!

    Serena--I'm just doing abstract blobs and such for the bookmarks. Nothing fancy. But--oh--so much fun!! :):) Now I know, too. Thanks for not spilling the beans--and I won't, either. ;)


I appreciate your visits and comments.
Have a really great day! :) :)
