Thousands of children are tortured and raped repeatedly in private run juvenile prisons...let's keep this in mind.


Women, need to realize, that the fastest growing population of the Prison SEX RAPE SLAVERY businesses is in fact, WOMEN. That includes, WOMEN JAILED FOR SELF DEFENSE WHICH IN THIS NATION, SISTER, WE DON'T HAVE A RIGHT TOO, we are not MEN nor ANIMAL, women get 50 to Life for Self Defense, against rape, abuse, repeated abuse and torture. Even for not dying while getting beat near to death, a man can kill or torture a child, and the WOMAN-MOTHER will be the one who gets the longer time in prison [if he even gets charged], AND IF the woman gets sentenced with mental health--she can expect to be Lobotomized by force.



Just some things I've worked on this Winter

Well, while I don't normally post my personal work, etc., life on here...I thought, I would add a few photos...they aren't the best, the lighting at our little home is extremely poor so winter time, pictures are hard to come by. AS you can see, when We have Winter, we have Winter, LOL


some embroidery I did for my daughter...a pillow case [reconstructed] of a Vintage Clown, that we drew from a photo of a vintage clown.

I will see if I can get a better close up,

OK well the close up sort of not so great there, LOL, I wanted to try and get a better close up, because it's the first time I incorporated the Turkey Stitch into any of my embroidery work--the Pom Poms, and while they were adorable, they weren't as easy as I thought they'd be. The hat, I did a Jacobean type of stitch--with silver metallic thread [a real pain in the ass to use, LOL, but I love to use metallic in my works when I can] and the shoes I did I think, lol, if memory serves me right, in a cross stitch? Well, I did this case in a hurry, its not my best work, but there are about 10 different types of stitches, from a simple stem to padded satin to oh, the french knots the neck line--Those came out awesome. The pillow case was cut-sewn out of an old good cotton sheet, from France of all places, that was stained. I got it in a great deal when buying some material from estate sale--for free. The woman threw some stained things in with the fabric remnants I bought and some sewing notions.

And some of my OLDER, way older reconstructs, when I first got started--

like this Painted broken piece of cement-not the best of pic, the one I had was ultra small [the good pics are on our Mac with is without monitor for the time being],

and this flower [for Fall] arrangement, made from trash finds, to the flowers/styro-foam, to the broken 'fountain' which is the vase, and a really bad shape bird bath that someone had tried to paint [a trash can find], so we use it only for decor [due to possible lead].

I've had this bee cement yard stone now for about, gee, 7 years I think, it lasted That long. Actually, I had done a couple of these, that I had in the front yard of our old mobile. I had planted a beautiful garden and when the park had moved in another mobile in across the streets, the truck hauler ran over all of them but two. I only have this one left, it will need to be repainted this spring however as its now starting to chip a bit in places. I think I drew the picture off of some advertisement, with a lot of primer on the cement [just regular cement stone] so the acrylics would set--and LOTS of sealer. The one I loved, that I think we lost in the move or it got taken, can't recall, the one I did my own artwork, a type of Monet's garden, with Crayon mixed with paint. For some reason, the Crayon was more vivid AND it lasted longer, without fading. Maybe the wax????

Anyway I'd paint these broken cement stones and you just put a rock behind them to stand them up, and they look awesome in a yard/with flowers. I had planted a pretty wild garden then, more natural--here where we are at now, the soil SUCKS, like big time-all clay and well, used to be a landfill I'm sure, most Mobile Home parks are [yea, that whole lets put the working class on toxic landfills, LOL and flood plains]

but anyway, we do mostly container garden here, except my husband grows some pretty good zucchini in the middle of yard, under a broken recycled swing set--that we use to hang up bird seed planters, and we have Hundreds of birds hanging out, including in our car port. They seem to like it here, so do squirrels,

in fact, we've had one squirrel this past summer, rip a hole in our screen, and jump in the Kitchen. Good thing we have cats and a dog--and some parrots. The cats and dog kept the squirrel in one place until we could get the window out, LOL,

yea, That was Fun! The yard was neglected for a couple of years when my back got worse [perm spine damage-lower to sacral joint, didn't walk for long time] but its better now, so I hope to get working on it this year and put up some different reconstructed things. I use a lot of natural branches, etc., including a huge one hanging on our porch with recycled flowers, ivy, shells and what have you, I change it to match the seasons.

And my record [vinyl] BOWL came out great, well, sort of, LOL, I'm using it to hold my wire and wire cutters--and I melted down a small 45 and not sure if I'll use it as a candle base or something else. This week, I'm cutting out some geese and roosters out of fabric for decoupaging jars, the big pickle jars, that I use for sugar, pasta, etc. Just not sure yet how I will do the borders of these little creatures to keep them from fraying. Hmmmm

And Later this week, I'll try to get some photos up of the first set of decoupaged jars I have done--am still needing to seal them when I can get some water based sealer. They are so much fun to do and so Cheap--like Free! That's the best thing, free and recycling at the same time! The downside is that I'm not doing any sewing/embroidery, still have three projects there that need finishing, a crazy patchwork denim-purse that needs to be embroidered, a crazy patchwork not sure what the heck I'm going to do with it--with beading, more of a sampler, and a abstract/my own artwork-embroidery laptop sleeve--that is a bit more complex, for what I usually do. The artwork that is,

and still have aprons I need to finish. I do that at times, I get on a roll, then get busy with something else, and I really Really need to get more focused and disciplined, if I'm going to get my business moving along. Lack of confidence I think is a lot of it--but God reminded me today, that I didn't know how to sew, cook, none of the domesticated stuff [except embroidery] due to leaving home at such a young age [long story, lets just say, my childhood was not a good one and for a year I lived in an orphanage so, yea boo hoo LOL], but well anyway, so I had to teach myself all these things,

with God's help. Oh, I knew how to wash dishes, work the fields [worked fields at 12 years old-maize] and how to work, but I didn't have a mother to teach me, so--

I forget these things, and find I compare myself a lot to other women and feel inadequate, but He reminded me today, that I didn't come from a background like that--it wasn't until my early to mid twenties that He encouraged me to Learn these skills. They need some polish, [though I do cook pretty good, LOL, gained enough weight and my family as evidence, lots of stews and yes, I cook from scratch, cheaper--but I HATE the amount of dishes and pots it takes--my baking, eh, well, two out of three ain't bad Right? :0 ]

but, He was faithful then, and still is, in fact, I am reminded, just how much, He really did, mother me, and fathered me [because I had neither, one absent and the other not so great] and well--I forget that sometimes.

Sometimes I think, He reminds us, of our accomplishments--rather than us dwelling on failures and shortcomings.
