Throwing Myself at My Mommy's Feet

I went to my mom's house hoping to ask her for a loan so that I could live until the first royalty check arrived. Instead, I lacked the chutzpah or something, I heard her complain about her chair being broken. I turned it upside down, found screws in her kitchen catch all drawer and a screwdriver in...

Embrace the Monster and just Have Fun!!!

So, where to start? I have a stack of unpaid bills which shall remain so, unpaid, because I am having so much fun with the Chinese prototypes. The gas gets turned off today, but in the 104 degrees Fahrenheit of this desert today, who is cooking, who is showering with the Hot faucet and Who Has Their... Sign in to see full entry.

The sales of my work at the Oasis Show were in the tens of thousands

and I was a hit. My cut is only ten percent, but HEY, that's money that trickles in while I read a magazine on how to do mosaics in my bathroom! They call every few days and keep me posted on events. I have finished the six Indians, three husband and wife teams for them. I have to mail them out... Sign in to see full entry.

One Photo of the First Indian Angels for China

Here is a photo of the first six angels that I made for the Chinese factory to reproduce. I think that you can click on it and make it larger. Dunno, will have to see. They are a Tohono O'Odham angel, Mescalero Apache, Acoma all standing and the seated ones are Navajo, Zuni, and Jicarilla Apache.... Sign in to see full entry.

Business, She is Good

I hadn’t manned a booth at a Trade Show in decades and was feeling a little nervous. I had dyed my hair dark red, spiked it and chosen very artistic clothing to help me to gather the courage necessary to deal with the business public. Sales people are such a tough and fast paced crowd. I mentally... Sign in to see full entry.

Chariot's Comin???

The factory in China returned their copies of my artwork, four angels, and I was going to buy the first order of 800 angels myself. But, the woman who opened the box of samples at their American offices, showed them to the owners of the American business side of the triad, and they have asked me to... Sign in to see full entry.

A New Computer, oh Joyous Days Ahead

Now I can really build online store pages, write my eBooks and begin to really experience life in the writer's lane on the freeways of verbiage! I cannot explain this without tearing up. I have fought this old computer and its twisted guts for two years. I have written while it crashes and brought... Sign in to see full entry.

Seminars, lasting all day, are EXHAUSTING

I went to a seminar for online store fronts, they want you to buy their package for around $3,000 for the first year. They do just about everything for you to get it going properly and then have tools for you to use to make the store front climb the search engine charts, using their tutorials and...

OMG, gomedome is a genius and I'm not half bad for a cavewoman

Gomedome has a link to a gif maker that offers 30 tries to get it right. Then you have to buy it for $9.50 and I might just do that. What fun!!! I went to the link, downloaded the software, read the tutorial and understood nothing. So, I did my usual, held my nose and took a deep breath and jumped... Sign in to see full entry.
